Quinn was born blind and sent to live at Woodland Haven orphanage.
His blindness prevented him from ever being adopted. His childhood
was spent being raised by the loving hands of the director of the
orphanage. Her kindness was the only love that he had ever experienced.
Once grown, he compensated for his lack of sight by being a successful
inventory. His success allowed him to purchase and rebuild Woodland
Haven. Returning from a business trip, he learns that a new director
has been selected; ex-model Alyssa Fielding. He disapproves of the
selection because he fears her former lifestyle hasn’t prepared
her to deal with the special needs of the children.
Fielding is convinced she can make a difference at Woodland Haven.
When she is called into Connor Quinn’s office and meets his
cold mannerisms she knows her job is in jeopardy. She defends her
qualifications and provides reasons why she is deserving of the
position. She recognizes that Connor is a man whose mind is hard
to change. Will she succeed in convincing him to give her the opportunity
to prove herself?
Mackenzie has written an exceptional novel. Although the story is
linked to an entire series, it well can stand on its own merit.
The characters both share a dark, intense attraction that draws
the readers into their heartache and pain. I look forward to reading
more about them in future books to come. Very highly recommend.
