Raised in the crime-ridden neighborhood of South Boston, Rebecca Sheehan has learned the hard way that people can't be trusted. So when her unscrupulous boyfriend turns up without a pulse, she knows she needs to get out of Southie. Fast.
She seeks refuge in the last place anyone would think to look for her - the picturesque town of Jackson, Wyoming. The locals in this small community live by a different set of standards, as Rebecca discovers when she finds work on a horse ranch. For once in her life, she's surrounded by genuine, respectable people - with one exception. Her arrogant new boss, Alec Westin, appears hell-bent on making her employment term as short as possible. With his self-righteous attitude, she'd gladly grant him his wish, if she wasn't so desperate for the job - and if he wasn't so easy on the eyes.
But after a chance encounter with his quadriplegic father, Rebecca learns the truth behind Alec's callous facade. Suddenly he is no longer a tyrant, but a diligent man risking his entire livelihood to provide for his family. Moved by Alec's fortitude and his father's warmth, Rebecca finds herself increasingly drawn into their personal affairs - and to Alec. Just when she starts to lower her guard, however, she discovers that her past is catching up with her. A series of sinister threats confirms her greatest fear - she's being hunted. It's only a matter of time before her stalker finds her. And when he does, she'll discover just how much her new friends are willing to risk - and sacrifice - to protect her.
