She thought she could hide from the violence of her past.
Then, she met the one man whose patience
was matched only by his determination
to peel away the layers of her secrets.
Hiding from the horrors of her past, the last thing quiet, shy Lydia thinks she needs is a persistent cowboy, who not only wants to strip away her clothes, but the layers of her secrets too. What Sam wants is more than just skin deep.
Little by little, as Lydia’s past start to reveal itself, Sam sees a woman who has never been afraid, who was bold and adventurous—talented and exciting. As Sam discovers the truths Lydia has buried in her heart, her nightmares of the past become stronger and her fear of the future threatens to jeopardise everything.
