Shattered by a tragic accident that took the lives of her closest friends and bandmates, Erin Chase needs a place to grieve while she decides what to do next. But privacy is hard to come by when you've grown up in the public eye and are considered America's Sweetheart. Sapphire Creek, Montana always allows her a certain amount of anonymity, so it's the natural place to lay low while reconnecting with her grandfather and friends, giving her time to sort through her feelings without the pressures of her chosen career.
With his military service completed, Zach Ward returns to Sapphire Creek, ready to settle into simple small-town life. He's adopted a rescue mutt that isn't all that bright, started a business and is working to reconnect with his community. But simple is tossed out the window when he finds himself on the front page of a tabloid, looking very cozy with a certain superstar.
Erin might be used to being the center of attention, but Zach works best in the shadows. When a criminal element invades Sapphire Creek and threatens her life, it's up to Zach to keep her safe until she returns to her regular life. Unless he can convince her to stay.
