Callie McKenna’s life revolves around the successful business she has built in the growing lumber town of Peshtigo, Wisconsin. She has no intention of sacrificing it for marriage, not even when handsome Tanner Slade crosses her threshold. Once she discovers he’s talking in half-truths and searching for the brother she disowned, Callie is sure she can’t trust him even as she’s drawn to him like no other.
Tanner Slade was following orders when he was sent in search of a murderer, not looking to tie his life in knots. Yet that’s exactly the position he finds himself in where the strong-willed Callie McKenna is concerned. Certain he has led danger to her door, he’ll take risks and set aside his pride if it means ensuring her safety – until a disaster of unfathomable destruction and despair threatens to take her away forever.
Will their love be enough to renew his faith in God while preserving her own?
