Country girl Chris Martel has struggled all her life to form strong,
lasting relationships. For Chris, love, compassion, and trust are
critical. In their absence, Chris has turned to her dog and her horse
for the emotional fulfillment she craves. Then along comes Mary Jo
Fresh out of veterinary school, Mary Jo inadvertently antagonizes Chris
with her overconfident assumptions about how to care for animals. She
comes to learn that Chris’s practical experience provides both a wealth
of knowledge and a friendship unlike any she’s ever known.
The carefully built walls around Chris’s heart begin to crumble as she
acknowledges the unfamiliar feelings evoked by being with Mary Jo. Just
as she believes she’s found the happiness that had always eluded her,
someone from Chris’s past comes back into her life, intent on winning
Chris’s affections, no matter what the cost.
Can the love between Chris and Mary Jo survive so that they can share A
Kiss Before Dawn?
