He'd do anything to bring her comfort. But little does she know, he's responsible for her heartache.

Cecily's whole world came crashing down the night she lost her mother and fellow baking partner. She now remains in the kitchen for hours on end just so she can feel closer to her again, the pain of her loss only easing when she's creating one of her mother's favorite recipes.

Cecily's father is an ex-outlaw who changed his ways the moment he fell in love and married his sweetheart. But after his wife's death two months before, one moment of drunken weakness sees him falling back into his old ways by holding up a passing stagecoach. In a heightened moment of alarm, he ends up getting shot by a man traveling home from the front lines of the Civil War, a former soldier intent on defending those in the coach with him.

Plagued with external and internal wounds after fighting two years on the blood-soaked battlefields against his fellow countrymen, and now riddled with guilt for shooting and killing a man days before Christmas, Trent Campbell feels it's his duty to fulfill the outlaw's dying wish and watch over his daughter, determined to inform her it was he who was responsible for her father’s death. But that was before he came upon the sad smile of the shattered young woman, his own sense of loss reflected in the bluest eyes he'd ever seen. Now he finds himself torn between his sense of honor and his growing feelings for the enchanting beauty, making it his mission to bring her joy and comfort even if that means protecting her from the truth of his actions.

Will two broken hearts find renewal and healing in each other, or will Trent’s secrets only further destroy them both?
