When Kendra lands a dessert contract with his family’s bar, Shane faces the need to trust her and resolves to divulge his guilty story. Wildfires, dodging family, and intimate nights keep him silent until a simple errand blows his secrets. Shane’s lies desolate Kendra, who retreats to her kitchen to nurse now deeper wounds. With no choice left, Shane reveals his past, despairing she will ever understand his failures. Her love would be the sweetest pledge. Winning back his sweetheart’s fragile trust is this cowboy's only hope.
