Cassidy Harte was a twelve-year old girl when she lost her parents, with only two older brothers, she learned too cook to pitch in and all the guys were like brothers for her when at eighteen she fell into love with a ranch-hand Zack. Those months were miraculous for her, despite Zack's apprehension about her age, she decided they should get married before she starts college. Then, she gets the news that Melanie(her sister-in-law) was seen leaving town with Zach.

Devastated, losing confidence in herself and feeling guilty she settled into the safety of the ranch and helped in raising her three-month old niece Lucy. But now she feels at odds, Lucy has a new mother and her brothers are moving forward while that fun loving Cassidy is long gone and has allowed her dreams to wither. So, she has moved out and taken a job at Lost Creek.

When in walks the new owner, a rich guy from Denver who turns out to be Zack. Cassie is not pleased and doesn't really believe him at first(that he is the owner) but when she does she turns in her resignation when Zack blackmails and guilts her into staying for a month(also promises her a great deal of money). You might think what a jerk but think again, you see Zack has come to win over Cassie. Despite all the wealth he has he has never forgotten Cassie and their dreams and then he finds out that people think he left with Melanie. He didn't and tries to tell her but he knows that he has lost that trust. You see Zack never considered himself worthy of Cassie and he was threatened into leaving town by some criminals, yes he could have contacted Cassie, but he thought a clean break would be better for her.

He takes all her anger and verbal jaunts quietly since he knows he deserves it and he is determined to do whatever it takes. I didn't want to like Zack but I did, the guy did love Cassie and regretted the pain he had caused and was genuine. I also loved Cassie see how she herself had stifled herself over the years using many things to blame for it.

I loved seeing these two come together again. A very good re-united lovers story.
