Meredith Wellington receives a call that her sister has been murdered. Her two young nieces land on her doorstep. An instant family is the last thing she needs as she reaches for the top rung of the corporate ladder.
Jeremiah Crown, aka Coach, lives a simple life managing his family's Kentucky horse ranch. When a damsel in distress decked out in a suit and spiked heels needs assistance, he's more than happy to help out. Happier still to realize this corporate powerhouse doesn't recognize him as the man she'd deemed an enemy in high school twenty years earlier.
Once she realizes Coach's identity, any chance of a romantic relationship disappears. When Meredith places her nieces low on her priority list, Jeremiah reconsiders his attraction to her. When danger comes calling, Meredith realizes this kindhearted veteran has the skill set to help her, if only she could set aside her pride to ask.
Can two people overcome past misunderstandings in time to thwart approaching danger?
