After discovering the brother he has not seen for a long time is dead, reclusive rancher Noah takes in his brother's pregnant wife Katherine.
Katherine had married Levi Cutter after a whirlwind romance, she fell pregnant very quickly. Levi left Katherine in town while he went off with a promise to return for her once he'd estsblished a home for her and their child. But 5 months go by and no word from Levi. When a stranger turns up claiming to be Levi's brother, informing Katherine that Levi is dead, she's left with little choice except to leave with Noah and return home with him to his ranch.
I loved the story and the characters in this, it's one of those books you don't want to end. Noah was a conflicted character having been badly scarred at a very young age, he'd always been in the shadow of his younger brother Levi who was handsome and charming. What I loved most was how having Katherine come into his life gradually turned his whole perception on how others viewed him. It was lovely reading how Katherine broke through all Noah's barriers.
Katherine had married Levi Cutter after a whirlwind romance and for the first couple of weeks it was great but then Levi grew restless and started to stay out more and then under the guise of looking for work he disappears completely leaving Katherine to manage alone working long hard hours in a laundry. Katherine hasn't seen Levi for five months, she's pregnant and living in a small shack with her mother.
Noah Cutter is a private man who keeps himself to himself so when he gets a message from the sheriff to identify a body which could be his brother Levi he reluctantly goes along, the body it turns out is Levi but Noah is more concerned with the fact that apparently Levi has a wife, a pregnant wife.
Although it wasn't his original intention Noah invites Katherine to return home with him, after all she's his brothers widow and carrying his child so it's the right thing to do. Noah struggles at first since he's such a private man, he's used to spending most of his time alone but slowly Katherine works her way into his life.
Noah and Levi were opposites, Levi was outgoing and friendly, handsome and he knew it and used it to get what and who he wanted, due to an accident when he was young Noah is heavily scarred and hides away from the world but the introduction of Katherine into his life is going to change him forever.
