"As a former EMT and a wildland firefighter, there's no one Jacob Dalton can't rescue - except himself. Since his best friend's tragic death, Jacob has isolated himself... until Vanessa Logan returns to Gold Valley. He saved her life during a medical years ago, and he's never forgotten her. The instant jolt of heat between them takes him by surprise, but he knows that giving in to it would only end in disaster. ... For Vanessa, returning home was about healing, not about exploring her attraction with Jacob. He is the guardian angel from her past - with strong, capable hands and an irresistible mouth. A temptation she knows she can't afford. Until the chemistry between them explodes, and unites them in a way they could never have imagined..."--Publisher description.
