Overview

She was the first woman to turn him down.

CEO-turned-rancher Curran Shaw is no stranger to hard work, but women have never required much effort. When a mysterious brunette at a resort-town Halloween party sparks his interest and then vanishes, he vows to finish what she started. It's finding her that's going to be the hard part.

He was her fantasy, and that's all he could ever be.

Victoria Linden has reconstructed her life and soul from the devastation wrought by an abusive ex and her own failures. She desperately wants to be loved, but what man will agree to the control and limitations she needs in order to hold herself together? Especially a man like Curran, who's used to getting whatever he wants. Walking away from him after a searing kiss is her only option.

When serendipity brings them together in the snowy mountains of Utah, will Victoria and Curran be able to mend the fences in their hearts, or will discovery and heartbreak tear them apart?

A man who’s removed himself from society meets a woman with secrets of her own. Curran Shaw is a CEO who made a spectacle of himself, dating starlets and being featured in tabloids, then he drops out of the public eye and moves to the mountains of Utah. He encounters a mystery woman at a bar on Halloween. Both of them are masked, but she recognizes him. See, once upon a time she did a story on him. She doesn’t let on, and leaves him with a kiss he can’t get out of his head. Months Victoria Linden is out riding when she encounters a bison tangled in a broken fence. She realizes the animal is tame and tries to help when Curran rides up. It’s his bison, his land, and when the bison, called Peg Leg, is freed, Curran realizes she’s the woman from the bar, the woman who kissed him. She enters a cautious relationship with him but holds herself back. Not only is she hiding the fact that she was a reporter, knowing his reaction wouldn’t be good, she’s hiding some even more dangerous secrets. I love the layers of this story--the way the secrets were revealed to the reader and the hero, and the way the secondary love story mirrors the main one. And I loved the gentle build of the romance. The characters grew together in a realistic yet romantic way. All in all, a terrific debut!

I know a book is fabulous when I catch myself wondering what the characters are doing when I'm not reading the book. Mending fences is a wonderful blend of romance, desire and healing. Set in the mountains of Park City, Utah, this book tells of two very different people and their journey of self discovery and healing. Snuggle on the couch in front of a roaring fire and lose yourself in the romance of Mending Fences.
