After years of waiting, Rusty gives up on Skylar and tries to purge her memory with cheap tequila and casual sex. When Skylar finally returns, Rusty is no longer the shy, sweet boy she fell in love with. He's a gorgeous, hard-bodied, paramedic and an expert in just about every type of mountain wilderness rescue. He's also bitter, angry and determined to protect what remains of his shattered heart. Skylar's determined to reclaim it, but first she has to put it back together.
