Two people find love in the embers of their painful pasts in this slow-burn romance from Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon bestselling author Winter Renshaw.
For me, family is a curse. My father and brother made my life hell. My mother’s untimely death still keeps me up at night. Now that my brother, Donovan, has been killed in an accident, I can forget the past.
The last remnant is the childhood home I’ve inherited—and which I intend to burn to the ground. The only obstacle? Anneliese Nielsen, Donovan’s fiancée.
Donovan left her destitute, and selling this run-down house is her only chance to recoup her losses. I shouldn’t care, but…maybe it’s her eyes when she sees me. I look strikingly like my brother, a man she loved despite everything.
So we strike a deal. We’ll renovate the house together, but she’ll have to convince me to sell—or up in flames it goes.
But the more time we spend in the house, the more its terrible history threatens to come out.
And even more dangerous, the harder I start to fall for Anneliese.



Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon bestselling author Winter Renshaw is a bona fide daydream believer. She lives somewhere in the middle of the USA and can rarely be seen without her trusty Mead notebook and ultra portable laptop. When she’s not writing, she’s living the American dream with her husband, three kids, and the laziest puggle this side of the Mississippi.

My Review...

Ms. Renshaw spins a fabulous story dealing with heartbreak, secrets, and lies. This story is also about honesty and genuine love.

This is the story of Lachlan and Anneliese. 

Anneliese has been taken for a fool; she loves hard and fast with the wrong person. This person has taken advantage of her and her soft heart. When an accident takes him away, Anneliese is faced with the truth of her relationship she tries to harden her heart and make the best of what’s left of her life.

Enter Lachlan; he is a man with a plan for vengeance and closure. He wants to watch his past burn, figuratively and literally. When a roadblock known as Anneliese comes into his world, it’s tipped all askew. 

I loved the honesty of Lachlan and the gentleness of Annelise. I was invested in this story and the secrets that were revealed and the relationship that blossomed from the ashes.

Ms. Renshaw has a fantastic talent for writing a story that will hook you from the get-go and won’t let you go until the final page and sometimes even longer!
