Carly Fitzpatrick had married the love of her life…and lost him in a tragic accident.
With no intention of ever falling in love again, she prefers to rely on herself to provide for her two young sons. She doesn’t count on meeting the one man who could change her mind.
Will Buchanon is a man on a mission. For twelve years he has been tracking an imposter; and the trail leads to Hidden Springs. His only objective is to bring the criminal to justice. Falling in love is not part of his plan.
Sparks fly from the first moment they meet but Carly resists Will at every turn, refusing to surrender to her desires. When her life is put in jeopardy, he risks everything to save her, and in the process proves that he is worthy of her love.
Can he win the heart of the woman who has a will of her own?
Breaking apart, they stared at each other, both panting heavily. Backing away a few steps, Carly placed her hand on her chest, trying to slow her breathing. Will took a step towards her but she shook her head, taking another step back.
“Will? Are you in here?”
“I’ll be right there, Jacob,” she answered for him, the tremor in her voice less obvious than she would have imagined. “I can’t do this, Will. I don’t want to. You’ll be leaving as soon as you’ve found the person you’re looking for. I won’t be a fling.”
Stepping close, he ran his thumb along her lower lip as he responded. “You’re wrong about two things. You do want to do this; you wouldn’t have kissed me back if you didn’t. And maybe I have found the person I’ve been looking for.”
