Divorced, broke, and alone, Kody Monroe merely exists in a dead-end midwestern town. When two lawyers tell her that she’s inherited a ranch in Montana, Kody hesitantly agrees to take a chance and leave the only home she’s ever known to start a new life out west. When Kody arrives at the ranch, she meets the unapproachable, much younger ranch foreman, Jake Shannon. Kody is drawn to him like a magnet, but red flags go up, followed by a sheet of armor around her much-broken heart. Jake, who has turned his own emotional hurts into a comfortable kind of loneliness, was expecting a woman from Indiana who didn't know how to run a ranch. But he finds blue eyes deep enough to drown in, and a smile warm enough to melt anyone’s heart, including his, which throws a monkey wrench into the secure world he’s been in. Kody has many unanswered questions as to who willed her the ranch. What, or who, is buried in a lone grave in the middle of a desolate prairie. Then there’s the surprise visit from an ex-husband she thought she’d never see again. Will family secrets and a heart out of control give Kody the courage to stay in Montana and live the life of her dreams? Or will she walk away from her dreams and go back to Indiana?
