When Connie MacKay travels from South Dakota to Montana to visit her daughter, she ends up helping the Rock Creek Ranch cowboys round up their cattle. Raised on a cattle ranch and quite comfortable in the saddle, Connie is determined to help the Rankin family when an accident leaves them shorthanded.
Noah Parker, uncle to Parker and Callie Rankin, shows up to the ranch as they prepare for the round-up. He’s been gone too many years and wonders how his return will be received. His answer comes quickly when he’s told to get his gear and horse and help with the cattle drive.
The days are long and the nights short, but Connie and Noah gravitate toward each other—until an unfortunate conversation gives Connie pause. She returns to South Dakota immediately after returning to the ranch without a word to Noah.
Noah is devastated. While he doesn’t feel comfortable going to South Dakota, he tries another tack—old fashioned love letters designed to woo Connie’s heart.
My Dearest Connie,
As I write this, I do so with a conflicted heart. On one hand, my heart is so full of love for you I fear it may burst. On the other, I fear it will never burst and put me out of my misery.
I miss you. I miss your face, your smile, your soft kisses. Knowing I will never see you again, weighs heavy on my chest and in my gut. But I will take the memories of you with me every day. I will wake up with them in the morning and go to sleep with them each night.
I’m so sorry. I was wrong. About everything.
Chalk it all up to an old fool who doesn’t know what he’s doing half the time. Hell, I’m just an old man who has lived with more old men and horses for too many decades. What do I know about women or falling in love?
And that’s my loss.
But I’ll still see your pretty smile every time I close my eyes. I’ll still feel you in my heart, my soul, with every breath I take. Having known you… Having had you in my life for a moment, was the best part of my life.
I hope you can forgive me.
