He's spent his life denying what he is. Then he meets the woman who won't let him...
Jake Stone is a carpenter by trade. He rarely surrenders to his artistic urges because his creations never live up to the picture in his mind. Only his work for a children's cancer clinic gives him the peace he is unable to find anywhere else.
Rachel Bennett has one task left to fulfill: a thank you to the artist who created the beautiful sculpture that was the only bright spot in a dark and horrible time. But when she finally finds Jake Stone, nothing goes as planned.
Rachel has given up on love. Jake barely believes in it at all. Can these two battered souls find in each other what neither of them dares wish for?
Justine Dare Davis sold her first book in 1989, and followed that up with the sale of nineteen novels in less than two years. Her first four books were published in 1991, and she saw all reach the finals for either the Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award or the Romance Writers of America prestigious RITA Award. She has since won the RITA award four times, along with several Reviewer's Choice awards and three Career Achievement awards from Romantic Times. At the 1998 national conference, Justine was inducted into the RWA Hall of Fame, making her one of a very select group of just eight writers. She also had four titles on the Romantic Times "Top 200 of All Time" list. Her sales now total more than 45, and her books have appeared regularly on best seller lists, including the USA Today list. She has been featured in several local newspapers and nationwide by Associated Press, has appeared on CNN, and on two episodes of a cable television series on romance. She has given workshops for many chapters of RWA, has spoken at several regional and international conferences and has taught at the UCLA Writer's Program. She is also featured in North American Romance Writers, an academic reference on the romance genre. Her limited free time is spent on reading, music, photography, watching the eagles near her home, and driving her restored 1967 Corvette Roadster---top down, of course.
