Join Bestselling Author Kelly Collins on another trip to Aspen Cove where anything is possible when it comes to love…

Aspen Cove, Colorado wasn’t on Lydia Nichols’ wish list when she finished her residency at Denver General Hospital, but life delivered several surprising blows. Her long-time boyfriend, who was also her boss, moved on with a nurse and took Lydia’s job with him. No boyfriend. No job. No options. As a favor to her sister, she arrived in the small mountain town for a temporary job as the clinic doctor. Her first question when she got there was ‘how fast can I leave?’ That was until sinfully, sexy Wes Covington came into the clinic seeking care. With him around Lydia might have found a reason to stay — for now.

Wes Covington left his demons in Denver. Working for his family’s architectural firm, he was tired of being almost — almost good enough — almost rich enough — almost loveable enough. He abandoned his penthouse, his high-paying position and his Porsche for simple, small-town life. All he wanted was to restore his ancestral home and find a good woman who would love him for who he was and not what he was worth. When Wes meets Dr. Lydia Nichols he likens her to a hellion with a halo. She’s the perfect mix of sassy and sweet, cunning and compassion, but she’ll never be his unless he can convince her to stay.

Love blooms quickly when the timing is right, but will Lydia surrender her chance at love, or can Wes convince her that everything she’ll ever want or need is right in Aspen Cove?
