Back home on her family's Texas Longhorn ranch, Grace Murray is busy preparing for her wedding. After a scruffy tattooed drifter saves her life, she takes on the mission of helping her savior, Heath Carter, find peace. The steady friendship and unconditional acceptance she receives from him encourages her to trade an old dream for a new one—a dream true to her heart. When she calls off her wedding, Grace is finally set free to fully love Heath.

After a decade of military service, Special Forces veteran Heath Carter is living with war's tragic consequences. Struggling with PTSD, anger, and guilt, he travels through Texas, solitarily moving from job to job. Working with Grace on the ranch, Heath's guilt over his past actions make him feel unworthy of her love. As their paths lead them in different directions, Heath needs to discover the courage to fight his toughest battle yet—the one inside himself.

Excerpt:

      They both worked in silence, the only sound the whoosh of brushes rubbing against the horse’s hair and the song playing on the radio. Heath walked around and gave Silver a quick rub on the nose. He stood beside Grace and placed a finger under her chin. As he lifted her face, she stilled. “You don’t seem very happy.” He searched her eyes for an answer to her sad mood. “Why?” His heart stabbed with pain at seeing her upset. He’d move mountains to put a smile on her face.
      “I don’t know who I am anymore. You told me the other day not to change, but it’s too late. If you asked me what I want for my life, I honestly can’t answer.” She returned to brushing the horse. “I’ve spent years turning myself into someone I’ve discovered I don’t really like.” Stepping back, she set the brush on a wooden tack box.
      “You’re a confident woman who has spent too much time making other people happy.” Heath moved toward her. He had so much he wanted to say—paint a picture of how she looked through his eyes—kind and caring, beautiful on the inside and out.
      “Where were you ten years ago?” Shimmering tears glided down her face. “I might have fallen in love with you.”
      “Then I would be the luckiest man alive.” As the radio played a country love song, he took her hand and pulled her close. “Dance with me.” His mind scolded him this was a bad idea, even worse than when he’d dated the daughter of Fort Bragg’s Garrison Commander. His heart disagreed and told him Grace was exactly where she needed to be, in his arms.
      Her body fit comfortably against his, and she rested her head on his shoulder. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill sang their famous duet about unending love. With Heath’s arms wrapped around her waist, Grace fingered the hair at the base of his neck. He’d happily stay in that embrace for the rest of his life
