Lily Livingston is a widow raising her six-year-old daughter, Claire, in New York City. Devastated by her husband's death three years ago, she's in no hurry to fall in love again. Besides, trying to balance her career with motherhood leaves her little time for romance.
With a wheelchair instead of a white horse, and a vow against falling in love again as his armor, Gideon Stone is the last person Lily expects to sweep her off her feet. But when a business agreement forces the two of them together, that is exactly what happens.
As they navigate the minefield that fast represents their relationship, can either of them overcome the obstacles to find true happiness in each other's arms? The answer is yes, but the bumps along the way demonstrate that neither of them can go it alone.

REOPENING ONE'S HEART TO LOVE AND FAITH IN ONESELF
I won a print copy of the first edition of this book from the author as part of The Romance Reviews 6th Anniversary Celebration, and the following is my honest opinion.
Fate as a unique way of bringing two individuals, where the female protagonist still devastated from the husband's death over three years ago and in no rush to love again meets her unexpected knight in shining armor who has sworn never to fall in love again.
Lily Livingston is that woman in this book, and as any working single Mom knows; it's hard enough trying to find time for both her career and being a mother to her young six-year-old daughter, Claire, child without trying to find the time to make her family whole again. There's no time to even begin looking for a guy she can fall in love with to give her the HEA she desires.
On the other side, we've got Gideon Stone, a great guy whose only drawback is his being wheelchair bound; a guy most women, including Lily, would consider to be damaged goods and the last individual who would be able to fulfill her desire of having a HEA. Yet, a chance business agreement find these two individuals being brought together.
It is through this partnership that these two individuals learn to work as a team to beat the hurdles which are being thrown in front of them; and it's through this realization that neither one can succeed on their own that they apply this knowledge to the own personal lives. Gideon, having been hurt when his girlfriend ups and left him after his accident, loses the faith he once had in himself and his heart, fearing he could never again satisfy the needs of a woman. Luckily, Lily sees the possibilities in being with him, and the possible HEA of being in his arms; which Gideon begins to realize himself.
With the sizeable reduction in the number of pages in this book's latest edition, I envision the issues I'd found in this first edition being eliminated, which will result in an enjoyable reading experiencing involving human nature, and the need to open one's heart to the renewed possibility of faith and being able to receive and give love. In the end, with all things considered, I'm giving this revised debut endeavor by Ms. Wilck 5 STARS.
