On the run from my violent ex, I was sure this little podunk town in Montana was the place to escape.

I wanted a fresh start, free of controlling men. A chance to pursue my teaching career. To become an independent woman for the first time in my life.

I didn’t plan on running into Damon.

He was all army swagger wrapped up in sweat and muscle. A tough alpha male. But something about him was broken, something deeper than his wounded leg.

And only I could heal it.
