will learn what it’s like to be helpless. Fila will have to find the courage she
lost years ago.

Will the truth bring them together? Or tear them apart for good?
Claire’s too busy leaving Montana behind to care about cowboys or their wedding plans. She’s got plans of her own—a trip around the world. She’ll go as soon as she buys her tickets and she doesn’t care if she ever sees Chance Creek again.
Desperate to change Claire’s mind, Jamie proposes a bet: give him six weeks to convince her to marry him. If he can’t, he’ll pay for her round-the-world tickets himself.
Claire can wait six weeks if it means free tickets and a chance to get a little revenge on a man who once broke her heart. She’s got only one stipulation: Jamie can’t touch or flirt with her—or any other woman—while the bet is on.
Now Jamie’s on the run from a bevy of cowboy-groupie ranch guests, and Claire’s learning she cares about the ranch—and Jamie—more than she dreamed possible.
Maybe it’s time to lose that bet.
As long as Jamie loses it first.
