A contemporary romance which features an old-fashioned Cinderella-type who finds her hero in this unusual story from a Romance Writers of America award winning author. When rugged world-traveler Zach Masterson returns home to Colorado to sell the family ranch, he never expected to find a complication like Sarah Solomon. This prim and proper lady is running from an Amish-like community and needed his help. But alluringly innocent though she is, Zach knew better than to allow her to put shackles on his wanderer's feet.                                                                                                                                                                                 Sarah found herself strangely drawn to the enigmatic cowboy who encouraged erotic imaginings in her normally pristine mind. But underneath his rough edges was a pain that made her own heart ache. And Sarah knew she would do anything to convince him that he belonged with the land...and with her.                                                                                                                                            Purchase on Amazon
