Her adopted daughter, three-year-old Katie, is her entire world, and no heartless legal system was going to take her baby away. She did what any mother would do. She grabbed Katie and ran—even if it meant breaking the law.

At first, he assumes she’s running from someone – an ex-husband or boyfriend – but when she won’t confide in him he starts wondering. Who is this woman who’s captured his heart, and what or who is she afraid? When he finds the answers, however, a part of him wishes he’d never asked the question. Because how can he help her when he represented what she’s fleeing . . . the law.

Lindsey Baker and Will Claxton had once been best friends, until betrayal drove them apart.
Now someone is sabotaging Lindsey’s ranch, and Will seems the most likely candidate. Although Lindsey wants to believe he’s innocent, he’s the one with the motive. Years earlier, her father had foreclosed on a loan that cost Will his family’s land. Still, he insists he had nothing to do with the ‘accidents’ plaguing Lindsey’s ranch. He wants his property returned, but he plans to buy it fair and square.
Lindsey wants to believe the man she’s loved since childhood, but she fears he’ll do almost anything to reclaim his family’s ranch. His sudden interest in her as a woman is too convenient. Can she trust a man who’s never seen her as anything but a friend, when she knows he’ll do anything to regain his family’s heritage – including breaking her heart once again?
