He has to choose – keep his secrets or the woman he loves. He can’t have both.
With no husband of her own, midwife Sophie Price lives to keep others calm in their hour of need. But when a handsome horse handler steps off the train with a fiery stallion, he brings anything but calm as he looks her dead in the eye and clear through to her soul.
Clay Ferguson returns to the place he once called home, hunting a fresh start and the one woman who could draw him back. If he can hide his battered heart and the brutality of his past, maybe she’ll take another look and give him a second chance.
Both bear scars from their fathers. Both fight for life. Together, they may learn that love is worth its impossible price.
