Kennedy Jameson's broken engagement put her in a spotlight that turned her world upside down. When tragedy strikes and she inherits her parents' farm in rural Western New York, she gives up her apartment in the city and escapes to the quiet countryside to lick her wounds. Her first night there, she tosses a coin in her mom's decorative well and makes a wish upon the full moon.
While exploring in the woods, Kennedy comes across a young puppy in remarkable shape for being in the middle of nowhere. They bond instantly, and he takes over the house like he owns the place. Before long, she learns that he holds a very special secret.
One that leads her to Dr. Shane Curtis, a local veterinarian and leading expert in the subjects of ancient legend and lore. He's also on the losing end of a nasty divorce and has no time for a city girl and her broken spirit. When she confides in him, they begin a long journey of discovery and amazement. Shane's surprised to find that it's more than the secret that piques his interest, and Kennedy learns that maybe her heart isn't as defective as she thought.
Griffin offered to take me home but I refused, knowing he needed to get Vanessa home.

Four men grabbed me. I fought them off, but when the barrel of a gun was pressed between my eyes, I knew the game was up.
But then a man appeared from the shadows and scared the men away like rats.
Tall, dark, and handsome.
His name is Bosco Roth.
He just saved my life, but he didn't do it for free.
He wants something in return.
A kiss. A hot and passionate kiss right up against the wall.
But that kiss is just the beginning.
