When Noah and Josephine Mitchell discover their
divorce was never actually finalized, their lives are turned
Following his divorce, Noah gave up his dream job, settling
at a remote horse ranch in the Blue Ridge Mountains of
northern Georgia, putting much-needed distance between
himself and the former love of his life. But then Noah gets
a letter from the IRS claiming he and Josephine are still
married. When he confronts Josephine for the first time in
months, they discover that she missed the final step in
filing the paperwork and they are, in fact, still married.
Josephine is no happier about the news than Noah. Maybe the
failed marriage—and okay, the botched divorce—was her fault,
but her heart was shattered right alongside his, more than
he would ever believe. The sooner they put this marriage
behind them, the better for both of their sakes.
But when Josephine delivers the final paperwork to his
ranch, the two become stranded in his cottage during the
worst spring snowstorm in a decade. Being trapped with
Josephine is a test of Noah’s endurance. He wrestles with
resentment and an unmistakable pull to his wife—still
beautiful, still brave, and still more intriguing than any
woman he’s ever known.
As they find themselves confronted with each other and their
shared past, old wounds surface and tempers flare. But when
they are forced out into the storm, they must rely on each
other in a way they never have before. Josephine finally
opens up about her tragic past, and Noah realizes she’s
never been loved unconditionally by anyone—including him.
Will Noah accept the challenge to pursue Josephine’s heart?
And can she finally find the courage to trust Noah?
