The forbidden attraction that binds them together.
Eulalia Pemberlay is still grieving the death of her husband almost a year after the disasters in Silverpines. Other widows have seemed to move on, why can’t she? She does what many others have done and sends for a mail order groom. What she doesn’t count on is Nicander Montgomery returning to town and stirring up feelings she thought were buried with her husband.
Firefighter Nic Montgomery made a promise to his best friend to watch over Eulalia in the event of his death. While dealing with complications in his own life, he returns to Silverpines to fulfil his promise. He never anticipates the attraction burning through him for the young widow. Love should be the furthest thing on his mind
Will Eulalia give into her feelings and realize that healing is right in front of her? Will Nic be able to keep his promise to his best friend without involving his heart? Will the promise that binds them together tear them apart?
Can Nic and Eulalia fight against a force more powerful than anything else…forbidden love?
