A year in godforsaken Storafalt, Wyoming? No big deal…or so traveling tutor Veronica Silver tells herself. She needs hands-on experience with a special group of students to qualify for a grant, and her assigned passel of ranch kids are special cases, all right. Ronnie loves a challenge, but pitted against a small town’s far-too-active grapevine and a woeful lack of amenities, she worries she won’t be able to hack it.
With the education system in Storafalt sorely lacking, rancher John Lundstrom thought hiring a private tutor would ease some of his considerable stress. What he didn’t expect was a powerful mutual attraction with Ronnie or her steadfast refusal to let him properly court her. She’s on a one-year assignment and wants no entanglements when it’s time to go home to North Carolina.
An unplanned pregnancy and Ronnie’s ensuing deception spins the Lundstrom ranch into a major upheaval. John refuses to let Ronnie run away with his daughter, but he may be forced to compromise when her homesickness threatens to drive a wedge between the two lonely hearts once and for all.
When Clara Fuller inherits her father’s ranch, she quickly learns being in charge is not going to be all that easy. Raised around cattle, she knows the business inside and out, but few men are willing to work for a lady rancher. Even nature itself seems to have it out for her when a drought threatens the livestock. Little does she know, that’s the least of her concerns. A darker cloud is on the horizon. Once a drifter, Jake Talley has finally found a place to call home. As the foreman of the Fuller Ranch he doesn’t mind taking orders from a woman. As Miss Clara’s self-appointed protector, he takes his job seriously. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to help the lady succeed. That devotion is tested when trouble comes to call. Edward Sinclair is a successful man who wants more. He’s used to getting what he wants and few have dared to try and stand in the way. One piece of property is all he needs to have complete control of the one thing his neighbors need most—water. There’s only one problem, the land belongs to Clara Fuller. That’s all right, he’s never met a problem yet he couldn’t erase.
“Summer Sanchez has a plan:
Get full custody of her little boy from his good-for-nothing father and get as far away from the rodeo circuit as possible. Keeping her son safe is her only priority. She’ll figure out the rest later.
Until Austin Camden takes her to his bed… Champion bull rider, Austin Camden, shows her just how much she’s been missing. His rugged good looks, whisky-smooth voice and very capable hands set her on fire. He has more bedroom skill than she ever believed could be housed in one man. If she isn’t careful, she may never recover.
If he plays his cards right…
Austin will go home with the PBR buckle and Summer, the sexy little spitfire that’s his every fantasy come to life.
He’ll risk it all…
To keep her and her son safe when their lives together are threatened. Keeping her sated and making her his forever is just a bonus.
Can he convince her Camden Ranch is where she belongs before it’s too late?
He’s spent the last ten years chasing that championship buckle.
He’s about to discover that the ride of his life will have nothing to do with a bull.
It’s a no holds barred fight to the finish to prove to Summer that their scorching hot relationship is better than winning any buckle.”
Arrogant a$$hole. Cocky prick. That’s Clay Walker. I’ve known him since I was five, and he’s gone out of his way to make my life a living hell since. He even tricked me into letting him punch my v-card. I thought when I graduated from high school and left BFE Nowhere for greener pastures I’d said goodbye to the a**hole for good. But I should’ve known better. I’m not that lucky. You see, I inherited my aunt’s ranch. And guess who’s been running the ranch for the past four years? You got it. That f#cking jerk is out to make me even more miserable than ever.
Did I mention he’s panty-melting hot? And since I’ve last seen him, he’s learned new ways of tormenting me…wicked, deliciously naughty ways.
So now there’s me, the responsible, business-minded good girl locking horns with the untamed bad boy. What’s the worst that can happen, right?
