“There weren’t words to describe what he felt when he saw her this way, like a goddess rising from murky depths to shimmer in the light.”
She put her trust in him for a night. Now they both want forever.
Ava McGee is a nobody, plagued by the voice of her father, driven to self-harm. Scarred and broken, tortured by doubts and a lack of self-worth, she doesn’t think she deserves to be loved.
She doesn’t want to be a burden.
Finnegan McLeod, Montana millionaire, wants to take Ava away from D.C., home to the wide-open spaces of Montana and the ranch he’s spent his life building. The ranch he wants her to share with him for the rest of their lives.
When the voices become too much to handle and the urge to cut is strong, which voice will have the greatest impact?

“Tonight was my fault, Finn. We said the slates were clean, but mine isn’t.” She said it so miserably, his heart sank with the forlorn edge of her tone. “I haven’t been honest with you. I’ve wanted to cut for days. Every day when you haven’t been here, the voices…my father’s voice…it got worse.”
It was the night for confessions, apparently, and Finn braced himself for the barrage of pain he sensed skidding down the tracks toward him. He was man enough to hear what she had to say, process it, and learn from his mistakes. “Why didn’t you tell me?”
She sighed heavily. “Sometimes I feel like I don’t have the right to. It feels like I’m complaining, and I don’t want to be the submissive or the girlfriend who whines about not seeing her lover enough. I’m the outsider, Finn. I don’t belong here, not yet. Little city mouse living in the country without the first idea of what to do or how to act. You work so hard and I…I just kinda float around and wait for you to come home.”
Goddamn it, he was going to strangle her. “How long have you felt like this, Ava?”
She shifted restlessly in the water. “A while now.”
He managed not to crack a tooth as his jaw clenched. With remarkable restraint, he kept his tone calm and even. “You’re not a guest here, Ava. You live here. If you’re unhappy about anything, from the amount of time I spend outside to the color on the goddamn walls, I expect you to tell me. You’re not an accessory in my life I’ve parked here for my convenience, darlin’. You’re part of my life now. I don’t care if I’m busy, you tell me what’s wrong so I can fix it.”
Her fingers worked anxiously against the nape of his neck. “The ranch was here before me, Finn. You can’t just drop—”
“The hell I can’t!” he exploded, sitting up so quickly, half the contents of the tub flooded the tiles. “Goddamn it, Ava. The ranch will survive without me. I can’t survive without you. I can and will drop whatever I’m doing if I need to.” He pulled her back so he could look her straight in the eyes. “Especially if it means I don’t walk through the door and find you dead.”
