After nine heartbreaking years, Jena Brooks is finally returning home to Willow Creek to face her demons, reap her revenge and find her child. The first person she confronts is Carson Corbett, constable for Willow Creek and the son of Asa, the man that took Jena’s baby. All those years ago, Jena had been pregnant with Jared Corbett’s baby, a fact his father denied. But when Jared was killed by Jena’s father, Asa reacted by kidnapping Jena, forcing a midwife to induce labor and stealing the baby. Jena’s father was also killed and to this day his murderer has not been found. Carson was serving in the Marines when all this happened and believed his father when he was told that his brother was killed by Jena’s father because Jared wouldn’t marry Jena. He thought, like the rest of the town, that Jena had run away from Willow Creek to have her baby.
Carson knows that all hell is about to break loose when Jenna starts spreading her story but despite the incredulousness of it all, he could feel a ring of truth. Jena wants his help in finding her baby and she expects Carson to talk with his father since Asa had just suffered a stroke. She wants to keep the sheriff out of the whole thing because her mother and sister still live in Willow Creek, she just wants her child and is prepared to have the high powered law firm where she works become involved if she doesn’t get satisfaction. Carson decides to work with Jena and find the answers she needs. Together, a bond is formed between Jena and Carson based on their developing trust and willingness to face the ugly past.
