A man lost in grief.A woman who can heal him.A secret that could destroy everything.Honey Creek Cottage is the house of Jezebel Hart's dreams-and the place of Gamble Smith's nightmares. The place he built with his own hands, every stick and brick a testament to his love for the family he lost. The place now in disrepair, its gardens tangled with loss and neglect, much like Gamble's heart.He can't bear to live in it. Yet he isn't ready to let go. Not even to the vivacious Jezebel, who has put her volatile past behind her and wants to plant roots. A woman whose sex-goddess looks, Gamble discovers, can't match her strength and compassion.They come together out of mutual need, but find mutual healing.Except...she's hiding something that could shatter their fragile bond.
