Young Parisian architect Chloe Germain hires childhood friend Hugo Bonnet as a builder. Lethally toxic to loved ones, Chloe keeps them at arm's length to protect them. Or so she thinks.
Patient and strong, Hugo prides himself on being able to fix anything. Trouble is, he's never tried repairing a chasm in someone's soul before.
Will his love save Chloe or will fixing her leave him broken?
This poignant and heartwarming standalone from USA Today bestseller Alix Nichols is the prequel to THE DARCY BROTHERS series.
