Overview

Jessica Ross' scars run much deeper than the wounds of a world at war. Determined to escape the ghosts of her past and the German influence on her nightmares, she returns home to the sleepy Appalachian town of Hot Springs, NC, only to find the renowned Mountain Park Hotel has been converted into a 'prison' for displaced Germans and, much to Jessica's dismay, her grandparents have befriended one of them.

August Reinhold has not only found kinship with Jessica's grandparents, but as they share their granddaughter's letters from the Front, he discovers a surprising bond drawing him toward the independent and beautiful woman. Displaced by a war and a painful history, he find Hot Springs and the intriguing, Jessica Ross, a tempting place to start over. Determined to scale the heights of her bitterness and show her the power of love, August faces more than just Jessica's resistance, but a more devious design to harm the civilian sailors housed in Hot Springs.

Will August's tender pursuit show Jessica the healing and hope she needs, or will bitterness force her into the hands of a 'true' enemy waiting to destroy much more than her heart?
