Jordan Reece blames her wild, adolescent ways for the heartaches she has endured and has tried to make it up to her parents’ memories every day since. Until, her past catches up to her in the form of a cowboy best forgotten. Being around Trent Matthews forces heated memories to surface, but she refuses to put her heart at risk again. The last time she allowed herself to be swayed by the smooth-talking, slow-swaggering cowboy, she arrived home to a pile of ashes.
Trent’s mundane existence moves at an idle pace, until a raven-haired beauty from his past returns and shakes things up. He wants to rekindle the flame ignited years ago and set free the wild, carefree girl she has buried under refined manners and nice clothes, but he has a hard time offering ‘until death do us part.’ The last time he proposed landed him in an operating room to remove two bullets from his chest. Will their pasts continue to tear them apart, or be their saving grace?
