I’m never stepping foot in a courtroom again, not after the humiliation I just brought my family. I guess I should have expected it, being a woman lawyer in 1885. It’s not as though the small Alaskan town where I live is very accepting of women lawyers.
So when an injured man shows up on our doorstep a week later, taking him in is no trouble. It’s not like I have anything else to do.
Caring for Jonas Darrow should be easy. After all my sister is a doctor, and I’ve helped her nurse dozens of others back to health. But the more time I spend with Jonas, the more I can’t stop my feelings from growing.
I know it’s foolish. We come from different worlds, and Jonas has shown no indication he wants a relationship—with me or anyone else. But I can’t seem to help myself. Not after watching how he protects my youngest brother.
But Jonas doesn’t know about my job. Or rather, my former job—and how hugely I failed with my last case. Once I tell him, he’ll turn his back on me…
Just like every man does when he finds out I’m a lawyer.
But then a woman in town needs my help, and I can’t keep my secret any longer. And that’s right about the time I learn Jonas has a secret too, one that might be bigger than mine.
One that might mean he’ll never love me the way I want him too. One that might put my family and the woman I’m trying to help in danger…
From a USA Today bestselling author comes a mountain family saga filled with a forced-proximity, opposites attract romance, and a love that heals wounded hearts.
