When Whitney Cooper inherits a house and five acres in Montana, she jumps at the opportunity to begin a new life. A life without fear...
In an unpleasant surprise, she's crushed to discover her house is attached to a ranch belonging to the Martin family. The reception she gets from Jared Martin is anything but welcoming. Even as she wonders what could be worse than what she was running from before, accidents that threaten her life bring back the terror she believed she'd finally escaped in moving to Montana.
Often left with the bitter taste of regret after an encounter with Whitney, Jared acknowledges he has a bad habit of jumping to conclusions about her--the unfair aftereffects of a bad romance in his past. The pull of desire he feels whenever she's around is the last thing he wants or needs, but he's certain she's hiding something and he's determined to find out what. Will Jared discover too late that keeping Whitney safe could cost them both their lives...along with his heart?
