Wildlife photographer Grace Vaughan thought she could escape her past, but fate has other plans. Her father’s death forces her to return to the idyllic village of Huntersford Leigh. Her mission? To arrange his funeral, pack up her childhood memories, and flee before her long-buried shame is exposed. But there’s a formidable obstacle in her path—the enigmatic Devlin Judge.
Devlin, a former army intelligence officer with a rugged charm and a stubborn streak, is not only the executor of her father’s will but also a relentless enforcer of its outrageous conditions. Sparks fly as they clash over the small print, forcing Grace to choose between enduring the judgmental whispers of Huntersford’s gossips or leaving with just a handful of cherished mementos.
Yet, as the shadows of doubt begin to creep in, Grace can’t ignore the haunting suspicion that her father’s death was no accident. As the mysteries of the past slowly unravel, Grace and Devlin become entangled in a dangerous web of secrets, betrayal, and smouldering desires that refuse to stay buried.
