From New York Times bestselling author Sharon Sala.
Sometimes running away takes you right where you’re meant to be…
After being dumped by her fiancé in the wake of a terrible accident, Lily Brownfield needs a change. So she decides to leave LA behind to move to Oklahoma and cook for the cowboys of the Longren Ranch. It seems like a perfect place to hide. A place to nurse her sorrows in private.
Then she meets Case Longren, a giant of a man in a black Stetson standing tall beneath the hot prairie sun. Case sees not only the outward scar the accident had left but the deep inner scars she tries to hide—and this makes Lily want to avoid him at all costs.
At first Case doesn’t understand why such a beautiful woman would leave the city to cook for two dozen dusty ranch hands in the middle of nowhere. To get to the bottom of this mystery, he’ll have to unearth the secrets behind Lily’s scars. But the more he learns, the more he wants to help her in whatever ways he can—even if that means losing her back to the big city.

With two great-grandmothers of Native American descent on her father’s side of the family, one belonging to the Cherokee tribe, and the other a member of the Cree Tribe, she has followed the path of a storyteller, and considers it her gift from Spirit. Most of her stories come first to her as dreams, which then become the books she writes. She dreams in color, with dialogue, and when she writes, she sees the scenes in her head as a movie playing out before her. Writing changed her life, her world, and her fate.
