It was the wrong time to fall in love.
Lara Foster thrived under the bright lights of L.A. Ten years after leaving Ohio, she was a household name, as famous for her sexy, pin-up style looks as for her successful motorcycle company. But the glitz and glamour comes to a screeching halt when tragedy leaves her the unlikely guardian of a devastated three year old girl.
Determined to make a change, Lara trades in her leather and high heels for work boots and returns to the family farm in order to focus on gaining permanent custody of her niece. There she meets Dr. Thaddeus Gilbert, a handsome archeologist who is excavating a burial mound on the property. Thaddeus is everything that Lara hoped to find in a man: intelligent, passionate, and eager to be a father to Mackenzie. Their unlikely romance is threatened when a social worker with a grudge and a meddling former lover expose her hidden past, and Lara must decide if she is willing to risk everything to start a new life.
