By day, Emily Sanders is a successful corporate attorney in Melbourne, Australia. But by night, she's the pro bono advisor at Ellen's House, a shelter for women in dangerous domestic situations. Emily's own father abandoned her and her mother to financial ruin. Now Emily supports them both, and devotes her free time to bringing hope to other women like her mum. But when the man behind the charity decides she's not the right woman for the job, or for him, how will she convince him otherwise?
Nathan Johnson is a successful architect with his own firm. He's driven by two passions--to succeed, and to be nothing like the man who raised him. As a boy, he watched his own mother die at his father's hand. Nathan set up Ellen's House in her name, and he does all in his power to help women who need it. But he keeps all other women at a distance. If he doesn't let himself love another woman, his heart can't be broken again.
Can she show him that true charity begins with opening his heart? And that trusting in love is the only way to happiness?
