Determined to give her son, Jeremy, the childhood he
deserves, Chloe Evans has left a tough past behind and is
starting fresh in the charming resort town of Jack Pine,
Oregon. But protecting Jeremy becomes a dicey proposition
when he seeks out the most dangerous man in town, Ben
Longtree, to heal his sick puppy. Chloe has been warned to
stay away from Ben. But there's something about him, at
once gentle and untamed, that intrigues her . . . .
Long ago, Ben accepted his role as the town outcast.
Rumored to have once killed a man, he lives in splendid
isolation with his forgetful mother, secretly employing
his skills as a veterinarian to heal the wounded wild
animals that mysteriously come to him. Now Chloe's sunny
warmth and brave tenacity arouse desire he has long
denied. And although Ben is notorious for his healing
touch, it is Chloe's hands . . .and heart . . . that have
the power to save his battered soul.
Known for her amazing talent, the New York Times
bestselling author of Only by Your Touch and Always in My
Heart delivers an extraordinary new tale of two people
who, in the most unexpected of circumstances, discover the
healing power of love...
