Single mother Juliana Kendrick moves to Texas when her soldier husband is killed. With no family of her own, she is welcomed and absorbed into the family of his best friend, Grady McKenna.
A year has passed, and she’s as much a part of Evansville, Texas, as any of the McKennas. She’s running his sister Sage’s bed and breakfast, is involved in the school, and is falling in love with rancher Trace McKenna, Grady’s older brother.
Trace’s ex has remarried and wants to take his daughter hundreds of miles away. He doesn’t want his daughter to live with his flighty ex and her shady new husband, and feels his only choice is to marry to win custody. He can’t think of a better candidate than Juliana. But he’s so scarred by the whole divorce, he knows he can never love again.
Can Juliana remind him what it is to be happy?
