Description
Actress Diamond Swain has achieved stunning success in Hollywood through talent and sheer determination, until the relentless pressures of celebrity begin to take a toll on her. What she needs is a peaceful place to hide out from the news-hungry press...a place like Whispering Pines. And yet from the moment she arrives at the remote Texas ranch, Diamond finds herself at odds with its rugged owner, Jake Madaris -- a man who challenges her to care about more than making it to the top.

Burned by a disastrous marriage, Jake has dedicated his life to the land he loves. He certainly doesn't want to take time off to babysit some Hollywood starlet, until he comes face-to-face with beautiful Diamond and glimpses a caring, incredibly vulnerable woman. It isn't long before they're both drawn into a whirlwind secret romance. But is what they share strong enough to overcome past pain and the world's prying eyes? Together, Jake and Diamond must discover what's truly important -- if they're to claim a lovethat lasts a lifetime.
