Jaded single mom Sage Whitaker is tired of choosing the wrong men. After discovering her fiancé with his secretary, Sage cuts all ties and relocates herself and her six-year-old daughter to Hartwood Creek to start over. She hopes to build a new life for herself and her daughter.
What she doesn’t count on is her old crush, Phoenix Hutchinson, taking an interest. He’s funny, charismatic, and charming–but Sage has been fooled by love before, and she’s not willing to give her heart away so easily.
Phoenix hadn’t thought about Sage in years, but when she moves to town, those old feelings awaken the moment he sees her again. But Sage has her walls up. Can Nix whittle his way into her heart and convince her their fierce connection is worth the risk?
