A Storm in the Desert (On Hold)
Jason Christensen moved to Phoenix after college to live in perpetual sunlight. After a string of personal disappointments and the unexpected death of his mother, he feels a chill in the air. A successful business owner and well respected man in the community, Jason finds himself escaping more and more often to his modest ranch outside town, trying to recapture the warmth and vitality of the desert. When chance once again brings him face to face with Lily Ames, the vibrant memory of tiny fingers wrapped tightly about his, warms something inside of him and he takes a first tentative step back toward the sun.
Lily Ames doesn't see him coming. In fact, between helping run the small herbal store where she works, her loving but challenging extended family and her busy life with five year old twins, Lily has no interest in anything else that might require her to divide her attention yet again. Why then, does she agree to spend a weekend at a ranch an hour's drive out of Phoenix? And how will she ever explain the consequences of that weekend to her family when she can't begin to understand them herself?
