Corey stared in disbelief at the charred wasteland that had been her neighborhood. Everything was gone- destroyed by the fire that swept through the canyon, turning everything in its path to blackened ash. The loss was devastating- but for Corey, the loneliness was even worse. Everyone around her was too busy trying to put life back together to understand Corey's problems...everyone except the one person she thought was too tough to care about anything...
From the first day wild and good-looking Topher West moved in next door, his only interests seemed to be riding his noisy motorcycle and terrorizing Corey's cat. Now he stood beside her with tears in his eyes. Behind that tough exterior, Topher actually had feelings. And, Corey discovered, enough experience with hurting to help her through this disaster.
