Three strangers arrive in rugged Bardville, Wyoming.
They're never the same... And neither are the people of Bardville.
Jessa met Cully through mutual friends. He made his interest clear. She turned him away. But now he's returned to tiny Bardville, Wyoming in the heart of cowboy country, bringing his teenage nephew along, and testing her resolve.
She's been a stranger to love for so long... Now, because she will not abandon a boy who is both trouble and troubled, she's tied to this intense, stubborn man who arouses her in ways she's never known...and who could break her completely.
Is this a second chance? Maybe. But can she take the risk of finding a stranger to love?
