He's home to shed his destructive past. She's here to make him atone for it.
Arson. Secrets. Betrayal.
Ross Stevenson has inherited an empire and the destructive baggage to go with it. He's back in Sharpsville, Kentucky to get rid of both and get back to his life. But a series of deliberate fires injures an old friend, and he's forced to stay until the arsonist is brought to justice.
Dr. Mel Hathaway hasn't come back to Sharpsville just to run the ER. She's also there to investigate her father's mysterious death on Stevenson land years before. It turned her life upside down, and it may not have been an accident.
Mel and Ross appear to have nothing in common. She despises everything about him, especially how his family makes its fortune, and she's stirring up trouble in a place where he has a deep history, whether he likes it or not.
She's also digging up secrets that should stay that way. But he can't leave her alone. And she doesn't want him to.
As the fires get more destructive, Ross learns more about Mel's past. The evidence is mounting against her, and she may have a motive.
