The story of the Gallagher heir who disappeared after a tragedy seventeen years ago...
Jackson Gallagher's teenage rebellion cost him everything: his home, his family and the girl who could only love him in secret. Seventeen years later, a wildly successful tycoon, Jackson is drawn back to Sweetgrass Springs to confront his past: the father who banished him, the small town that turned its back on him...and the woman he has never been able to forget.
The last person Veronica Butler is ready to see is the man who made her believe they’d be together forever, then vanished and broke her heart. Widowed and struggling to hold onto her children's heritage, she refuses his help but has trouble resisting the way he makes her remember how deeply she once loved him...except that when he learns the secret she's been keeping all these years, she'll lose him all over again.
