Free-spirited Elizabeth Foster turned her back on her father's photography business to pursue musical theater, but a career on the stage remains second to a career behind the camera. The possibility of a one-show contract means she's a few weeks from unemployment forcing her home, and her dreams of pursuing professional photography reemerge. With photography and theater opportunities unfolding before her, Elizabeth faces her biggest challenge yet—listening to her heart.
Meanwhile, sought-after photographer Ryan Callahan has put his career on hold to help his sister's family, but the promise of a bigger assignment could lure him away so he can begin building a family of his own. With professional opportunities and personal obligations pulling at him, Ryan faces his toughest challenge—balancing family, relationships, and work.
If given the choice, what dreams would develop for Elizabeth and Ryan? And will they learn to trust each other enough to focus on love?
An overnight cold front had christened the trees with a glittering glaze. Contrasted against the deep blue Colorado sky, the pristine white frost coating each individual branch and twig sparkled in the rising sun.
The perfection called to something deep within her and she spun back toward the apartment to retrieve her camera. A few minutes later, with the bag hanging behind her and several dozen images already saved, she squatted in the stairwell and zoomed the focus onto a single frost-covered nub, capturing the crystalline detail. Before her eyes, the warmth from the sun began to transform the sharp angles into a softer sheen. She captured the transition as a droplet formed, grew, and eventually released. With her fast-action shutter, she should have a few stunning shots.
The nerves in her fingertips began to tingle as she switched focus to another tree and moved down a few steps.
By the time she’d reached the sidewalk, the crystalline paint dripped everywhere. If she’d been a few minutes later, she’d have missed the moment when everything changed.
She lowered the viewfinder with a sigh as a truck pulled in to an empty spot nearby.
“I should have guessed you’d be out here with a camera.”
She turned to face Ryan as he leaned out the open window. “You should have seen it. It was magical. And gorgeous.”
“Yes, I see.” He eyed her rather than the trees.
A sudden warmth flooded her cheeks as she swung her camera bag around to her side and hurried around to the passenger side of his truck. She’d be wise to remember that while flirting was fun, it was too soon to feel anything more than friendship for Ryan, no matter how tempting.
After climbing in, she scooted to the middle of the bench seat. “Check these out.” She scrolled through the pictures and showed Ryan the previews.
His eyebrows rose. “Like you said. Gorgeous.”
A different giddy feeling rose in her chest only to war with the knowledge that humility should be the word of the day, considering the company she kept. Ryan’s awards were well deserved.
She smiled anyway and stowed the camera in the bag at her feet. “So where are the others?”
