New York Times bestselling author Catherine Anderson takes readers to a quaint wilderness town, where a man and a woman find a second chance at life—and love... Determined to give her son Jeremy the childhood he deserves, Chloe Evans has left a tough past behind and is starting fresh in the charming resort town of Jack Pine, Oregon. But protecting Jeremy becomes a dicey proposition when he seeks out the most dangerous man in town to heal his sick puppy. Chloe has been warned to stay away from Ben Longtree. But there's something about the gentle, untamed loner that intrigues her... Long ago, Ben accepted his role as town outcast. Rumored to have once killed a man, he lives in splendid isolation with his forgetful mother, secretly employing his skills as a veterinarian to heal the wounded animals that mysteriously come to him. Now, Chloe's sunny warmth and brave tenacity arouse desires he has long denied. And although Ben is notorious for his healing touch, it is Chloe's hands—and heart—that have the power to save his battered soul. From the Paperback edition.

Leaving an abusive marriage, Chloe moves with her young son, Jeremy, to Jack Pine, Oregon, to start over. Hoping that it will help him adjust to his new home, Chloe lets Jeremy have a puppy, but when the puppy gets sick and the local vet is unwilling and unable to treat it, Jeremy turns to Ben Longtree for help. Once a veterinarian, Ben, who has long been ostracized, still treats wounded animals at his isolated home on a ridge outside the town. Afraid that Jeremy may be in danger, Chloe arrives at Ben's home determined to save him only to find that Ben is nothing like the rumors she has been hearing. A hero struggling with secrets from his past and a heroine determined to put her past behind her find another chance at romance in Anderson's latest contemporary, which includes a touch of magic as Ben, with Chloe's help, struggles with and comes to accept his special talent for healing in this beautifully written, emotionally satisfying story.
