In the isolated sanctuary of her Montana ranch, no one could hurt Brooke Kennedy, whose gift had led her to build walls of ice around her heart. One person had stormed those barricades: her friend Pepper, who embraced the world and meddled in the lives of those she loved. Now Brooke needed help, and Pepper sent troubleshooter Cody Nash to melt the barriers Brooke had raised. A golden man whose tender persuasion opened the door to the maze that was Brooke's soul, Cody dared to face the fire-breathing dragons that haunted her mind. But first, Brooke had to believe that he loved her-enough to catch her when she fell off the edge of the world. New York Times bestseller.
American Romance novelist, Kay Hooper envisioned her career a bit differently when she was younger. She was born in California, but her family quickly moved back to their home state of North Carolina after her birth. Her father was stationed in a California Air Force Base when she was born. In her family of five, she was the oldest child. Her original thought was to take business classes at a community college, but quickly decided that business did not do anything for her interests. After enrolling in some history and literature classes, her focus turned to writing. Her first novel was purchased by Dell Publishing, entitled Lady Thief. Her mother became her personal assistant, and Hooper has had more than 60 novels published. After her mother's death in 2002, her sister Linda became her business manager, publicist, and events coordinator.
