When Tyler Donnelly left Wishing River, Montana eight years ago, he swore he’d never come back. But when he gets the call that his father’s had a stroke, guilt and duty drive him back to his hometown. But not everything is as he remembers. The family ranch is run-down, his father refuses to accept his help, and Lainey Sutton is all grown up now–and still off-limits.
Lainey is done with cowboys. Especially the kind who think they can just walk–no, saunter–back into town looking even better than all her teenage fantasies. But she recognizes a man that needs a whole lot of healing, too. She owes his dad everything, and the best way she can repay his kindness is to show Ty what it means to be part of a small-town–and part of a family again.
But the problem with helping two men heal their hearts is she might lose her own in the process.
