He’s the beloved founder of Dare Valley’s respected Hale family, but in 1960, he was just starting out with a vision few believed was possible.
She was the daughter of the man he ruined on his way to the top—or so she thought.
Journalist Arthur Hale is determined to be on the forefront of change. A successful New York City journalist, he returns to his hometown to start a newspaper that will channel the voice of the West and join the ranks of other prestigious papers in the trade.
But the bigger the dream, the higher the price.

Though Arthur’s sixth sense as a journalist tells him the beautiful and complicated redhead is hiding something, he can’t stay away.

Soon the impossible happens when tragedy strikes their small town, and she finds herself falling for the man she set out to destroy.
