She’s independent to a fault. He’s dominant and stern. Perfect match, right?

Andie Malone’s life has never been easy, shuffled from foster home to foster home. She follows her best friend, the sister she never had, to a new town and a new life for herself as a single mother. Her joy and sense of security are shattered when her best friend, Candice and her husband, Caleb are murdered. Not only does Andie have to deal with the tremendous loss, but she is named guardian of her friend’s child.

Eli Cameron is a rancher and owns a large spread with his brother, Caleb. When he gets the tragic news, his first concern is for his niece. He’s more than upset when guardianship is given to Candice’s friend instead of to his family and he makes his feelings known. After he spends some time with his niece and Andie, however, he discovers what a wonderful mother she is to both girls. He also discovers Andie takes care of everyone but herself. He means to change that even if it requires a trip over his knee.

The more time Eli and Andie spend together changes their relationship from barely friendly to romantic. The journey isn’t easy amid the grief of loss, the unsolved murders and danger, Andie’s independent spirit, and Eli’s no-nonsense, take charge attitude. But the journey is worth taking.
