From New York Times, bestselling author Ruth Cardello comes an emotional romance about love, loss, and second chances.
Jared’s childhood was so ugly he changed his name to free himself from it. He fought his way out of poverty and earned his success, but all that isn’t enough when his past catches up to him.
Michawn isn’t looking for love when she meets Jared. She’s confident she already has the perfect man and the perfect life. All she wants is to make enough money to pay for the wedding she’s been dreaming of.
There shouldn’t have been a spark of attraction, but there was . . .then a phone call changes everything for Michawn and her life shatters around her.
She loses everything.
Can a man who sees himself as the last person who should help her, be the only one who can?
With a little guidance from Dominic Corisi, he just might find a way to heal himself as well.
Michawn has her future planned out and that includes a happy ever after with her fiancé until in a blink of an eye it is gone. Trying to go on is much more difficult than imagined and she isn’t sure how to move forward and she never the leading role that Jared would play.
Professionally Jared is a success but due to the childhood he endured personally he is cautious and closed off. He gave up believing in happy ever after a long time ago but all it would take is seeing Michawn in pain to realize he couldn’t have been more wrong.
This is at times a heartbreaking and inspiring story about love, family and healing as two people who couldn’t be more different find the happiness they both deserve.

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.
