A woman scarred by injuries that will never heal … a man who’s not planning to have his heart broken twice … and an old mining town that brings them together.
When washed-up Australian tennis player Alex Mason unexpectedly inherits half of an old mining town in California, her dream of becoming a children’s tennis coach comes within reach. However, when she travels to California to visit the town, she begins to think there may be more to it than the dollar value of its real estate.
There are two types of people Travis Gold has learned to mistrust; athletes, like his cheating ex-wife, and Masons, the family who started a feud by taking his family’s saloon in a drunken poker game. Exhausted by his past, he’s ready to move on—until Alex Mason’s arrival in town opens every old wound.
Sparks fly when the descendants of the town’s founders meet, but at first it’s for all the wrong reasons. Can they both stop letting the past define them in time to discover the real gold in the old mining town?
