they will defeat the past.When Dr. Caroline Stern moves to the Texas Hill Country to share custody of her
rescued son, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with the little
boy’s sexy father!
CHRISTMAS DAY… the life of Dr. Caroline Stern changed forever. Her husband was
murdered, her baby son kidnapped. When she found the boy again, he was with his
biological father – a man Caroline never intended to meet.
There seems no obvious tie between Jack Briscoe and the violence of sixteen
months prior, but Caroline just wants her son back – something Jack seems
unwilling to grant. He wants the boy, too, and when a wily old country judge
demands the two of them work out a shared custody arrangement, Caroline finds
herself in Texas Hill Country for longer than expected.
Then she learns Jack wants her, too. And she might want him.
In the beautiful town of Verde, on the shores of Lake Templeton, she begins to
rebuild her life. But the dark clouds of the past have not vanished completely,

deepest love will see them through.
