One broken heart. One battered soul. No one said life would be fair or easy.
Quiet Peruvian-born artist Cassie Lopez learned this the hard way. Betrayed by the man she planned to marry, she shut herself off far away from it all but her closest friend from college… Until the night Luke Denton came crashing into her Colorado mountain sanctuary with a vengeance.
Confused by her heart’s response to this kind and gentle man, Cassie pushes herself to help the cowboy recover quickly so she can send him on his way. But Luke’s patience and understanding threaten to break down the very defenses she needs to survive in this world after he’s gone.
