So what if he was handsome and charming? They couldn’t be more different.

Infuriating as Rick was, Charity’s mission was clear: Help him see the light of church. As a loner who depended only on himself, he’d be tough to reach. But Charity was determined, even though she knew she risked her own strongly built convictions-about the man who should have her heart.
