- Publisher out of stock
A tender, classic love story about letting go of the past and finding the courage to embrace love from the New York Times bestselling author of Roses.
Deborah Standridge has done everything her parents have ever asked of her with a smile on her face. That's what southern belles do. But when a renowned architect offers her a job at his firm across the country only days before her wedding, she faces a dilemma. Should she become the dutiful wife of a man she doesn't love to please her parents or finally make her own dream come true? Leaving her fiancee at the altar, she flies to Denver, setting in motion a tragedy that will haunt her for the rest of her life.
Now, as one of Denver's most successful architects, Deborah manages to avoid love at all costs...until Dan Parker walks into her firm-and her heart. Magnetic and irresistible, Dan commissions her to design a building for him and gives her the courage to believe in love again. But he has a secret that may be her undoing. Will his love and the family they could create become her crowning design? Or will he break her heart and cost her everything she's worked so hard to build?
