Not to trust though!
Charlie spotted the beautiful woman by the creek and couldn’t get her out of his mind. He had things to do. He didn’t have time to flirt.
So why was he riding by the creek – again?
Because something about the beautiful woman called to him.
Unfortunately, his strict moral code wouldn’t allow him to have an affair with an employee. So when he discovered that Samantha was none other than the new ranch cook “Sam”, he couldn’t allow himself to see her.
But he couldn’t stay away.
Marriage was the only answer. Being with Samantha wouldn’t violate his moral code if they were married.
Now to convince the little lady to take a chance on him. She didn’t trust men. Not after what her first husband put her through. But failure was not an option!
When Eve strolled into town with her cute smile and curtsy, Mack instantly knew that he was in trouble. Add in her bizarrely named appetizers and specialty drinks, Mack suspected that the whole town was in trouble! They just didn’t know it yet.
She led with her heart and not her head. She was too soft and too nice. And damn it if she didn’t wiggle herself into his dreams!
Fresh off of a cheating ex-fiancé, Eve definitely wasn’t in the market for another relationship. It didn’t matter how sexy the big bad the man was, or how adorably grumpy. She still wasn’t interested.
At least, that’s what she kept trying to tell herself.
Unfortunately, her determination was weak and Mack was hot. Between a mountain lion stoned off of cocaine and mind-boggling kisses, Eve had no way to resist Mack Jones.
Years ago, Cynthia had been madly in love with the devastatingly handsome Ryan Dalton. But life and circumstances pulled them apart. Cynthia has trust issues – but just a casual touch from Ryan could ignite a fire inside of her.
Unconsciously, Ryan had waited for Cynthia. Seeing her now, he knew that she was the one. How could he convince her to leave her past behind them and make a new future with him? And then a baby comes into the picture?
A love story that proves that true love never dies…it just simmers until the flames can be reignited.
Joe watched Kelsie try to avoid him even as their gazes were pulled towards one another over and over. Joe became more fascinated with every heated, furtive glance. And when he kissed her, the lovely lady melted in his arms.
So who the hell was this Tommy guy that kept calling her? And why did the woman volunteer for every activity? Another good question – why was she baking over five hundred cookies on a Saturday morning? Joe knew of better things to be doing on a chilly morning and none of them involved flour or chocolate chips.
Kelsie couldn’t believe she’d just kissed the tall, dangerous-looking man! She didn’t even know his name! And why did he seem to show up everywhere she went? She had to keep him at a distance, to keep both of them safe. This attraction she felt for the too-tough, too-wealthy rancher was dangerous.
Because if he ever found out about her family…well, it was just better to leave and keep everyone safe. So why wouldn’t Joe let her do that?! The man was relentless and sexy and annoying and…goodness, he made her body melt with just a look. Yes, he was too dangerous.
But he hadn’t called Fleur after that night. He’d said he would. But he hadn’t. A man only got one chance with her, and Hunter had blown it.
Why didn’t he accept that?
Maybe it was because, every time he pulled her into his arms, Fleur melted like ice cream on a hot, summer afternoon.
Hunter wanted Fleur. He’d wanted her two years ago but then danger had entered Jefferson, Montana and he’d had to protect her. He couldn’t let anything happen to Fleur.
But that had been two years ago and now the danger was gone. Hunter was determined to claim the delicate woman that had haunted his dreams for the past two years. Nothing was going to get in his way. Not even the woman who claimed she didn’t want him, but her eyes and her body told him something different
But…oh my, when he touched her…or kissed her!
Then again, it was hard to keep the man at a distance when someone was breaking into her house…to clean? That just didn’t make sense!
Mike was furious! Halley kept disappearing for hours at a time. He knew she was hiding something, but he couldn’t figure her out. He loved solving mysteries, but not when it came to his woman. And yes, Halley was his woman even if she hadn’t accepted that reality in her mind.
Getting her to accept that truth, and finding out what she was hiding, was his biggest challenge.
So why was he back in her life? And why was he demanding to purchase the most beautiful, perfect lake house she’d ever seen? And why did he keep kissing her as if she was the only woman in the world that mattered?
Hunter West had lost the beautiful, voluptuous red-head six months ago. But no matter how many women he dated, none could get the fiery woman out of his mind. So he was going to get her back. And he was going to figure out why she kept running away from him! One way or another, the lovely Kara James was going to be his! The mysterious woman with all of her secrets was going to reveal all to him.
