Does time really heal all wounds? Libby Cunningham has finally found the daughter her father forced her to give up for adoption nearly sixteen years ago. She has never forgiven herself and w desperately wants to make it up to Amber for the years they've lost. However, she has also learned that Cash MacKenzie, Amber's father, has custody. Libby has never forgotten that Cash broke her teenage heart and deserted her when she needed him the most. Now he holds the key to her future happiness. Can she overcome her memories of the past or will her feelings jeopardize the present? From Cash's viewpoint, Libby couldn't have picked a worse time to intrude upon their lives. Amber's rebellious attitude reminds him of Libby at that age. He doesn't need interference from the woman who abandoned her own child and realizes he's never forgiven her. What guarantee does he have that Libby won't walk away from Amber a second time? Libby's feelings for Amber may be genuine, but he will never allow her to hurt Amber-or him-ever again.
