Ida Stevens is a resourceful woman who naturally rises to any challenge the world throws at her. First, she is left by her husband, Liam, to face a brutal winter in the Salt Lake Valley; he promised her he would return, but she doesn’t waste time waiting for him. Then, just as autumn is slipping into winter, she discovers a wounded, unconscious man in the grove of trees near her cabin.
Kelly Cook is a wanted man. He ran from the law right into Ida’s path, and once he found himself safely ensconced and recovering in her home, he worked his way into her arms, her bed, and then her heart.
In Kelly, Ida found a kindred spirit and a strong heart. A man who would not only stand by her, but also support her, and protect her. He lit her body on fire as the endless blizzards roared outside her cabin door.
But the twin obstacles of her husband and his past stand between them and a shared future, and they must overcome them to find their way to each other again.
