Slade and Kally by A.E. Rought
Weeks before Thanksgiving, Kally Jensen leaves her life in Michigan and her abusive fiancé behind. With her sister's money, a teddy bear and bruises she cannot hide, she tries to disappear. She almost does—permanently—when icy roads force her car into a ditch, leaving her stranded and injured on a cattle ranch in Hulett, Wyoming.
Fate answers ex-police officer Slade Carlson's unspoken need for change by delivering a hypothermic girl into his arms. Kally is like no call he's worked before; her abuse-related injuries and unconscious cries for mercy pierce his lonely heart. Nursing Kally back to health and helping her see life beyond the pain gives Slade the purpose he's been looking for.
Holding back his feelings until she can work through her own emotional pain will be the hardest thing he's ever done. Yet new love blossoms like a Christmas Lily in the Wyoming winter.
Still, Slade's love may not be enough to protect Kally when the shadows rise from her past...
