One look at Ellie and the hurt and love farmer Flynn has tried so hard to hide comes roaring back. But he’s a man now, and big enough to forgive her betrayal, if not forget. No matter how loyal the locals think they’re being in bullying Ellie, he can fight his own battles. Except protecting Ellie resurrects emotions he’d thought well drowned, and as she needs him more and more, he can’t resist another taste of what they once shared.
As their love rekindles, so does the need for truth. But with emotions made fragile by the past, revealing the tragedies and heartbreak of ten years ago could cost Ellie the one man she’s always loved. While Flynn must overcome his fear of once more being JILTED.
