Fast-track up the political ladder, fast cars, fast women - that's city boy Garrett McKettrick. Make that was. A scandal has slowed him down and brought him home to Blue River, Texas, a place where a man can take stock and plan his next move. Which doesn't include staying at the family ranch with his brothers.
But Blue River has other attractions, like his former high school nemesis, Julie Remington. Now a striking woman, Julie comes complete with a four-year-old cowboy, a threelegged beagle and deep ties to the community. Good thing he and Julie have nothing in common except their undeniable attraction. Or is Garrett more of a country boy than he thought?
World champion rodeo star Austin McKettrick has finally been bested by an angry bull. With his career over, and his love life a mess, the lone maverick has nowhere to go... except back home to Blue River and the Silver Spur Ranch where his brothers have hired a nurse to speed his recovery. Paige Remington's bossy brand of TLC is driving him crazy. Not to mention her beautiful face, sexy figure and silky black hair.
Paige has lost count of the number of times Austin has tried to fire her. She's not going anywhere till he's healed - body and heart. And by then her place in his life just might become permanent...
