Will Gold Valley's most reclusive cowboy finally find a reason to heal?
As a former EMT and a wildland firefighter, there's no one Jacob Dalton can't save -- except himself. Since his best friend's tragic death, Jacob has isolated himself…until Vanessa Logan returns to Gold Valley. He saved her life during a medical call years ago, and he's never forgotten her. The instant jolt of heat between them takes him by surprise, but he knows that giving in to it would only end in disaster…
For Vanessa, returning home was about healing, not about exploring her attraction with this strong, silent cowboy. Jacob is the guardian angel from her past -- with strong, capable hands and an irresistible mouth. He's a temptation she knows she can't afford. But after the chemistry between them explodes, she must tell Jacob he's not alone anymore -- she's pregnant with his baby.
