Ryan Steel is known in Snow Creek as the handsomest Steel brother with the most jovial personality. Now that his busy grape harvest and winemaking season is over, he's happy to spend time with his family and help his brothers, Talon and Jonah, celebrate their impending nuptials. The Steels are taking a well-deserved break from the conspiracy surrounding them...until an unlikely woman and a long-buried secret shatter Ryan's world.
Detective Ruby Lee has been on her own since she was fifteen. When her past collides with the Steel family's mysteries, she's determined to find the truth. She has her own issues, and she's not looking for a relationship, despite her all-consuming attraction to Ryan Steel. The gorgeous dark-haired man gets under her skin anyway... and he needs her.
Together they explore both of their histories, but those pasts could cost them a future.

Love the Steel Brithers Series
Read whole series of these books so far, awaiting with anticipation book 8 when it becomes available. Well written, tear jerker at times, romantic and with the lighter moments makes this an easy to read series of books.
Exciting series, have to hang in the balance now till the final two books come out
Great read can't wait for the next one in the series to come out in December
I love reading, as I find it very enjoyable and relaxing. When reading I totally get lost in the story and become part of it, and escape from this life for a few hours. I love reading about the Steel Brothers and their family, and the ups and downs of life they go through. I read this book in 2 days as I found it very hard to put it down. I have ordered the next book that follows on from Shattered, and I cannot wait to receive it. I wish this series could go on forever. The plot is original that grabs you right from the 1st page, and doesn't let go of the reader until the very last page.

"Ms. Hardt weaves magic with her keyboard and what remains is a beautifully written first installment about two people who are broken but not destroyed... How Hardt weaves the past with the present, while keeping the reader guessing about the secrets the brothers barricade from others, is flawless."--Heroes & Heartbreakers Made my heart stop in my chest. Helen has given us such a heartbreakingly beautiful series.--Bookalicious Babes Blog
