Benjamin Drover thought he’d found love until his wife joined the Marines and was killed in action. He’s spent the last year, hating everyone—including himself. On the anniversary of his wife’s death, he receives a letter from her asking him to donate her entire inheritance to the Landon Foundation.
He’s angry with her for leaving, angry with himself for not moving on, and driven beyond fury when the always irreverent Clay Landon refuses the donation.
Born to one of the world’s wealthiest families, Clay’s sister, Caterina has had anything but an easy life. After losing her parents and one of her older brothers, the ultimate betrayal came from Clay himself. What he did to her, how she suffered because of him, was something she is still recovering from. She doesn’t regret walking away from her inheritance, but she is tired of the past controlling her. It’s time to face it, face Clay, and finally begin to heal.
Her whole life is upside-down. It’s definitely the wrong time to meet the right man.
Caterina’s pain tears through Benjamin’s anger. He wants to help her, but first, he must heal his own wounds. To keep her, he’ll need to become the man he always should have been.
This time, when the woman he loves announces she’s going to battle—he’ll go with her.
And if Clay Landon survives, he just might get to play Fairy Godfather one more time.

Meet Ruth Cardello
Ruth Cardello hit the New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers Lists for the first time back in 2012.
Millions of sales are evidence that her books are akin to potato chips, addictive from the first one. She has created a multi-series billionaire world with a combination of escapism and realism that has gained her a faithful following of readers.
Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York–then came full circle and moved back to New England. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.
She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier.
When she’s not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm or connecting with her readers online.
