Park ranger Clay Bedford is content with his life. He has, and loves, the dream job he’s always wanted. His close-knit family lives nearby, and he has good friends and a loyal dog for company. He isn’t looking for love. He’d suffered through the loss of love before; she was the one who got away…until she came back. Hotel manager Abigail Blanchard has dealt with her cold and controlling parents her entire life. When she was in college, her parents made a decision that forced Abigail to stay away from Clay, leaving her world turned upside down. After bending to her parents’ will that one last time, she’s found a way to move beyond it to build her own life on her own terms. Bumping into Clay Bedford again, however, was not something she’d planned for. When Clay responds to an accident involving Abigail somewhere off the beaten path in the Smoky Mountains, he has no idea how seeing her again will change his world. After an unexpected night together, the pair realizes the spark is still there between them. Will they be able to overcome their past or will Abigail’s parents force them apart forever?
