US Marshall Cortland Kysenzki never imagined that returning to Texas for a friend's birthday party would change his outlook on life. But it did, all it takes is one look and he is a goner. Only one problem, it is his friend's sister who snares his attention.
Zémire Gibson comes to celebrate her brother's birthday. Despite her resolve to not get involved with anyone, coming face to face with a man she's dreamed about since childhood, turns that into nothing. So she allows herself one night in Cort's amazing embrace beneath the Texas sky.
When her brother goes missing, Cort flies to France to tell her and ask for her help with something he received from BB Gibson before his disappearance. It didn't matter what circumstances brought him back within reach of Zémire, Cort is determined not to let her go again, having been unable to vanquish her from his memory. He escorts her back to Texas where they grow closer as she hopes and prays for her brother to resurface.
But Zémire isn't the same child she used to be, she's a grown woman with a mind and a life all her own...one in France. Will Cort have what it takes to convince her once and for all they are meant to be, or will she be gone from his life forever?
