Always the dressmaker, never the bride. And that was fine with seamstress extraordinaire Shelly Barker. Though she happily sewed gowns for clients, her own life was hardly fairy-tale material. Her secret sorrow was hidden in her mountaintop home, away from people who wouldn't understand...people like socially prominent Dan Sutherland.
Shelly knew Dan was trying his darnedest to be her Prince Charming, but she couldn't give him a chance to slay her dragons. Someone like Dan belonged in a glittering world far removed from lifelong burdens and broken dreams -- or had she underestimated him? Dan seemed determined to shoulder Shelly's responsibilities...and carry her off to a place where happy ending did exist.
