Coal Davis is a horse rancher who has been raised in a family where money and power have ruled her life, and t in a good way. She has returned home after her grandparents death to accept a new family role that she does t want. Unfortunately, that role requires her to have to deal with her father or risk the loss of a program that sick children depend upon. Jay DiAngelo is the contractor hired to work on the home Coal Davis has inherited. With her dark hair and honey eyes, being a contractor isn t her only skill. She lives from paycheck to paycheck trying to pay off a debt that could cost her a home that is very special to her. Working in the town of Woodside is a risk, since a relative has tarnished her family name. But pride is everything to Jay, and since she d never ask for a handout, she d rather take the risk and chance going hungry than beg for help. Both have a lot to lose. A relationship would be risky, but if they can overcome the obstacles keeping them apart, they could build something priceless.
