    For Sara Shepard, no place is dearer to her heart than Nantucket Island. Having visited every summer for years, it’s the one place she truly feels at home. To escape a toxic childhood, she ran straight into marriage with a high school friend. She discovers safety isn’t enough to sustain a marriage. With her estranged husband medically discharged from the Marines suffering from PTSD, life once again becomes unsafe. Now with a loveless marriage over, and her relationship with her teenaged daughter in shambles, she returns to Nantucket. Determined to rebuild her life, Sara begins a journey in search of peace, self-discovery and a way to follow her passion.

He considers being far away from the drama tearing his family apart a bonus.

    When Gabriel is hired to restore the beach cottage Sara is renting, they’re blindsided by the fierce attraction they feel. Both burned in the past, forever is not in the equation. But they will consider a hot summer fling. Neither suspects they have stumbled into the arms of the one person who can make all the difference.

    They say time heals all wounds …

    …but time hasn’t been on my side.

    My life has been carefully planned, ever since the day I graduated from art school and left my carefree, party girl identity behind. I got the job as a professional muralist for New York’s wealthiest citizens, and I had the perfect relationship with a man I wanted to start a family with.

    Five years later, I’m single, barely employed, and thousands of dollars in debt to New York’s best infertility treatment center.

    It turns out the only thing I couldn’t control was my body—it betrayed me and left me with a diagnosis of untreatable, inexplicable, devastating infertility.

    When a cowboy billionaire appears out of the blue, offering an exorbitant amount of money for a job I can complete in a month, there’s no question that I’m hopping on a plane to New Mexico.

    It’s the perfect opportunity to forget the family I’ll never have.

    But when the limo rolls up to Rowan Corbett’s estate in the middle of nowhere, I know that there’s one more thing I won’t be able to control. With thick black hair, sapphire eyes, and a jawline that could cut steel, Rowan looks like he just stepped out of a wild west book from fifty years ago.

    As the weeks go by… I start to wonder, can love be the cure I’m looking for?

Until Cade walks into my life and starts to make me feel like maybe, just maybe, my life wasn’t meant to be nothing more than a lonely struggle against hardship. The only problem is, he’s only in town for a few short months and we both know that when he leaves, I can’t go with him…

    We’re from different worlds. We both knew our paths were destined to deviate. But the sweet, perfect heat of being together blossomed into something more than either of us could handle and now I have a secret. A dimpled, blue-eyed secret who’s the spitting image of his daddy.
