Jack Spears knows all about loss. Having suffered through it, he can recognize the signs of it. The walls. The icy personality. The bitterness.
When Jack meets Dakota, he’s immediately drawn to her. Maybe it’s because she’s gorgeous; maybe it’s curiosity. Or, it might be the fact that he knows she’s suffering and can’t turn his back on her.
By herself in a cabin in the Teton Mountains of Wyoming, Dakota finds herself ill-prepared for the harsh winter following her bitter divorce.
That’s when Jack steps in, gives her what she’s needed, and makes it impossible to keep her heart where she thinks it’s safest, under lock and key.
The one dream that Dakota has always had is to have a family and a home to call her own however she has come to the painful conclusion that the man she chose is not the man who can give it to her. She is looking for a fresh start however she isn’t prepared for her sexy neighbors or the feelings he is raising.
Jack is healing from a devastating situation of his own and where better than a secluded cabin. When he meets Dakota he feels a connection to her that he didn’t expect and now he needs to convince her to open her heart to love and the future they could have together.
