When Becca Reynolds heads for rural Georgia to investigate a suspected crop insurance scam, she's concerned about her career, not her heart.
Chief among the suspects is handsome Ryan MacIntosh, who isn't telling everything he knows. Could his involvement possibly be deeper than his devotion to his grandmother and the small farm that's been in the family for generations?
Becca can't be sure, even though she knows Ryan intimately—at least online. She's certain he's the charming stranger with whom she's exchanged countless e-mails—and fallen in love. But she can't admit the truth any more than Ryan can—nor predict what it will cost them in the end.

Now, how to make it happen…?
