When wrong-side-of-the-tracks Bethany married hotel magnate Wyatt Marston, she was willing to do whatever it took to fit into his upscale life. Her swift rise through the ranks in his family’s corporation made them partners on paper but Wyatt now seems more interested in her stock shares than in their vows—vows she’d fight for even if it means following him beyond the edge of civilization where a leaky tent, a surly moose and a dangerous situation to prove how far she’d go to keep him.

Wyatt Marton knew all too well what people would do to succeed. His parents were prime examples.  He’d desperately wanted to believe Bethany loved him for himself until shown evidence that she craved prestige more than his kisses.  Withdrawing to the home of his childhood to make a heartbreaking decision, Wyatt finds his future plans at risk, forcing him to turn to his wife for help – and to trust in the promises she’d once made to keep his dreams alive . . . and to share them with him.
