Dakota Brenton spends his days leading thrill seekers on adventures through the woods of Maplehaven, Vermont. He’s traveled all over the world on expeditions, but he always comes back home to the cozy town his ancestors founded. Dakota loves his free-spirit lifestyle. He comes and goes as he pleases, however, he can’t help wanting more.
Leah Greenstead is the new fourth grade teacher at Maplehaven Elementary, a school built through a generous donation from Brenton Sawmill. Having abandoned New York City after a tragedy, Leah is doing her best to adjust to life in the quiet Vermont town. With any luck, she’ll be able to leave her past behind, stick to her rules about not getting close to anyone, and preserve what little is left of her heart. She wants to believe the world is safe again, and if that means being alone, then so be it.
When Dakota meets Leah at a ceremony honoring his family’s sawmill, he sees his next adventure. As Maplehaven’s golden boy, he’s surprised when Leah doesn’t immediately accept his advances. He’s never had to work this hard, but he has a feeling Leah Greenstead will be worth the effort.
Is one kind heart enough to change Leah’s mind about love?
Christine DePetrillo can often be found hugging trees,
conversing with dragonflies, and walking barefoot through sun-warmed soil.
She finds joy in listening to the wind, bathing in moonlight, and breathing in
the fragrances of things that bloom. If she had her way, the sky would be the
only roof over her head.
Her love of nature seeps into every story she tells. As does her obsession with
bearded mountain men who build, often smell like sawdust, and know how to
cherish the women they love. Today she writes tales meant to make you laugh,
maybe make you sweat, and definitely make you believe in the power of love.
She lives in Rhode Island and occasionally Vermont with her pack—a husband, a
cat, and a big, black German Shepherd who defends her fiercely from all evils.
