Can a hurting boy help two broken people find their way back to love ?
Lissa Frye returns home from the Navy hoping to find a different future—one which includes a husband, marriage, and a family, until news from her sister impacts Lissa’s personal life and derails her plans.
Kurt McKintrick, having lost his best friend to an IED in Afghanistan, has returned to help the man’s mother run a horse rescue ranch. Images of war plague him, and thoughts of anyone else he might love falling victim to an untimely end, distance him from the person most likely to help.
Eleven-year-old Jayden Clarke seeks to fill the ache in his heart from his father’s death two years before. But his life is turned upside down when the rancher who befriended him is found dead, the horses neglected, and the dog missing. When authorities arrive to investigate, Lissa and Kurt, estranged after a former relationship, are forced to meet again. Lissa must confront images from her past and Kurt struggles to live with his present truth.
Will Jayden be the catalyst that draws Lissa and Kurt back together for a happily ever after?

BOOK EXCERPT

Kurt did as instructed, stopping the pickup so the hood pointed away from the property. A tall, lithe form popped out from the big barn doors, the image caught in his side mirror. Kurt’s pulse raced.Every bit as professional and alluring as she’d been in her Navy uniform the day he’d met her, Lissa stood waiting, hands on her hips. She wore a brown shirt and green pants denoting her current position, the trim uniform accentuating every curve. Her hair dangled in wispy curls about her face, the mass of brown she only let down in private, with friends—with him—still captured in a neat bun. He gave thanks she hadn’t worn her hair down today or his resolve would 

have flown out the window, along with the shreds of his heart.He licked his lips, lifted his baseball cap, and ran a hand through his hair. Glad he’d taken time to shave this morning, he followed Peggy’s lead as she stepped from the cab. He watched Lissa’s face, waiting for recognition to appear in her eyes. His heart thumped like the foot of an animated rabbit.
