With no funds and nowhere to go, Harper moves into the rundown shanty that Veezie previously called home, in Goose Hollow, Alabama. But Harper soon discovers the unattached, young country doctor in the little hick town has something far more valuable to her than the affluent lifestyle she left behind. However, to take it from him will break his heart. If he wasnt so stubborn, Harper could fall for a man like Flint. When Dr. Flint McCall learns Harper is secretly attempting to sabotage his plans, hes furious and begins a quest of his own. How could he have fallen in love with such a pig-headed woman?
