She surrendered the reins. Now he’s raising the stakes.
When attorney Ginger Paulson slips head-over-high-heels down a flight of stairs, she has no one to care for her young son…until lethally sexy Kane McKay shows up, determined to prove his cowboy chivalry. Past experience has inoculated her against take-charge men, but even Ginger isn’t immune to Kane’s Built Ford Tough body.
For two years rancher Kane McKay has followed the Little Buddies mentoring program’s cardinal rule—hands off his Little Buddy Hayden’s mama. But one look at Ginger’s bruised body and Kane is through watching the stubborn woman take care of everyone but herself. The feisty, curvy redhead needs his help and he’ll give her the hands-on type whether she likes it or not.
Now Kane’s throwing out the doctor’s orders and issuing his own demands—her full sexual submission. Can the former hell-raiser convince the gun-shy single mom to look beyond his past…toward a shared future?
Warning: Contains one hot hunk of cowboy manflesh who uses every trick in the book to render a sassy, fast-talking attorney speechless and put a new twist on the term “binding arbitration.”
