Will they take a risk and grab a hold of their missing destiny?
Shauna Nathan has a stalker so leaving her orderly and predictable life for a while is imperative to her safety and her family’s peace of mind. She’s established in her field of chemical engineering and resents what she considers this pause in her life while her father’s security firm finds the man that has been making her life a living hell. Given no choice but to leave town, she visits a college friend in Chandlerville, hoping it is the last place the man who’s been following her, will look.
Zach Mobley grew up in Bourbonville with one goal; to leave the town and the stigma of his childhood behind. He was tired of the sympathetic looks some of the town people gave him after his mother left, and the knowing looks the rest gave him when his dad took to drinking.
He moved to New York, had a successful career in finance, a beautiful wife and daughter one day and the next it was all gone. He came back to Chandlerville to come to terms with his loss and find a modicum of peace as a ranch hand- turned therapist at Murphy’s Equestrian Therapy Center. He’s learned to be content living alone until Shauna walks in his life and makes him want more.
The battle of wills begin as these two very independent-minded people fight against their attraction for one another, but when Shauna’s stalker arrives in town Zach is introduced to the more fragile side of his strong-willed client.
Will he lower his defenses enough to risk heartbreak again or will he hold onto the sense of peace he’s worked so hard to regain?
