It’s been a year since Vale Harper’s husband and toddler died in a tragic car accident, and the wound is still raw. Another blow hits the family when the call comes saying her uncle in Hawaii has died. With a gentle nudge from her parents and an encouraging vision of her husband in a dream, Vale agrees to leave the security of the Idaho mountains and make the trip to Kauai. She reunites with her grandfather, but finds the family’s guest ranch hanging on by a thread. Paint is peeling, the bank account is almost empty, and the long time wedding planner is missing. Vale’s parents convince her to stay behind on the island to help her tutu bring the place back to life.
As Vale settles in, she discovers her uncle left behind more than a run down ranch. A secret gambling addiction has not only drained the coffers, it has left behind a significant bill to a dangerous man. It soon becomes evident Vale needs legal help, but is she ready for the handsome mainland cowboy who seems interested in more than representing her?
Montana transplant, Weaver Ash, has a fledgling law firm and a broken heart he’s desperate to heal. His hurt is forgotten when Vale Harper walks into his office. Her mission to save her family’s guest ranch becomes his own and when bodies start appearing, he’s determined to speed up the process to secure the safety of the green-eyed beauty that has power to make him forget his ex.
With help from Detective Jack Jenkins, Vale and Weaver stand up to a man who is used to having his way whatever the cost.
