"A True Love to Be Cherished!"

Willow (Willy) Mackenzie's husband left her for another woman and has filed for divorce, but this is the least of her troubles. She's been diagnosed with an incurable brain tumor. However, fate takes Willy down another path where she stumbles upon a rose covered cottage for rent in Baker's Gully and into the life of Darby Sullivan.

Darby takes one look at Willy and senses this beautiful woman has a deadly illness. She needs the cottage and he agrees to let her rent it. As their friendship grows, Darby battles against telling her he's fallen in love with her. He's afraid she won't accept him for what he is. Willy knows Darby has a secret, but she is more afraid of letting herself love him when she only has months to live.

Darby and Willy come alive in this tale of passion, love and the supernatural. They are two despairing souls who are barely hanging onto their fragile existence—until they meet each other. Their love is heartbreakingly sweet and given unselfishly—a true love to be cherished. Ms. Pike's tale will capture your heart!

Abandoned by her husband after receiving a fatal medical diagnosis, Willow Mackenzie is determined to realize her unfulfilled dreams. On a jaunt to a lonely quarry called Baker's Gully in the hope of photographing an eagle, she discovers an abandoned cottage and its reclusive owner, Darby Sullivan. Captivated by the rose-covered dwelling and intrigued by its stern, sexy owner, Willow knows instinctively that she is meant to spend the rest of her life in Baker's Gully.

A man of secrets, Darby is content with his hermit-like existence, but troubled by the deadly illness her senses within her, he agrees to rent Willow the cottage, knowing it is the one place on earth that can heal her. But saving Willow's life may cost Darby his own.
