Single mother Rachel Madison doesn't believe in love. Experience has her that the only person she can truly rely on is herself. What she wants most in the world is to give her son the life she never had growing up. In order to do that, though, she must put her faith in a man who once walked out on her.
Retired from the service, U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Colton Taylor has come home to Phoenix to bury his brother. Nobody is more surprised than he is to see Rachel waiting for him at the airport. He regrets nothing more than the morning he walked away from her, but having grown up in an abusive home, Colt puts limits on all his relationships—especially this one.
Discovering he has a son, Colt knows this is the chance he's been waiting for. He's determined to prove to himself he's nothing like his father and to convince Rachel he's the one man she can rely on. When a drug dealer crops up from his brother's dark past, threatening their son, Colt and Rachel are forced to face their demons…and each other.
