Their love was undeniable, but will his haunted past threaten their future?
Just looking at her made Paul think of sex even though he didn’t know a single thing about her. For the first time in years, this beautiful young woman stirred something inside of him that he thought was long dead: desire. Could she possibly be the one to heal his trampled-down heart and remind him what love is?
Missy never thought she’d end up back in Arizona, the wasteland she’d fled for a better prospect out west. But circumstances brought her back to teach in a poverty-stricken town, battling every day for her students. Then, one day, Paul Collins walks into her classroom and into her life, and suddenly she can see the oasis in the middle of the desert.
But Paul’s’ been running from something, and just the fact of his attraction to Missy may have caught it up to him. Will he be able to defeat his past and make room for a future with Missy?
