Canaan Liberty may spend some time in Nashville picking up awards for the country music he writes, but his buddies know him simply as the farm hand for a herd of goats. To say the least, his reentry from the war in Afghanistan, where he was wounded in more ways than one, has been rocky. The fact that he's writing songs, even the fact that he has buddies again, are signs that he's getting better.
What Canaan doesn't need in his life is Josefina Claire. Seffie is also wounded--left uncared for and unattended at age thirteen, she became the victim of a predator. Seffie is bright and sweet and hot, and, maybe, she's getting better, too. But Canaan knows this: two wounds don't make a right.
Seffie sees past their pain when she looks at Canaan. She sees someone to love. When Canaan resists, she's willing to use a little subterfuge to get what she wants. But Canaan is determined to protect her from the danger he believes he represents.
When the real danger in Seffie's life--the predator from her past--returns, will Canaan have the skills to protect her? And will Seffie break through his barriers with her love to keep him from losing himself in the darkness again?
When it's over, will Canaan be able to give Seffie what she wants, what she deserves: a better man?
