Refusing Gabe's proposal was the right thing to do.
And Katie hasn't regretted her choice once in the past ten years. Gabe went on to law school and a brilliant career, and she took care of her family, put her siblings through college and even opened her own bakery.
She couldn't stand between Gabe and success any more than she could have left her family to struggle without her. Though life can be a little lonely sometimes.
Life has been good to Gabe, but he wants to come home to Cactus, Texas, and the embrace of his grandmother's house. When he returns to settle Gran's estate, he learns that her bequest will only be granted if he marries Katie! Well, the idea of baring his soul to Katie a second time sure doesn't sit well with Gabe. But without her, he'll never find the peace he's looking for.
