About this ebook

As the youngest brother, Mark Friessen refuses to answer to anyone. He’s been called a restless bad boy because responsibility for his father’s ranch has never rested on his shoulders, even though he loves everything about the life of a cowboy. Working with the horses and the land, being in charge, and doing all the hard work on the ranch has always settled his restless nature—that is, until a rodeo queen broke his heart by running off with his best friend after two-timing him for six long months.

The funny thing about broken hearts is that they make people do things they wouldn’t do if they were thinking clearly, as his mother so succinctly advised him during his ensuing dating spree. This is likely why Mark has now signed up to be a deputy in the next county over, with a badge, a gun, and the kind of power he thought he wanted.

When he pulls young mousy librarian Daria McKenzie over for speeding, she is speechless and furious when she realizes he doesn’t remember who she is. This bad boy has left a trail of broken hearts in his wake—including hers. p.p1 {margin: 12.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'; color: #000000} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'; color: #000000; min-height: 15.0px} p.p3 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'; color: #000000} p.p4 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 12.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'; color: #000000}

This is a very charming and delightful tale of an unexpected second chance. While Mark thinks he’s still nursing a broken heart, he finds just what he didn’t realize he was looking for. Daria’s not sure she’s willing to give Mark a 2nd chance, especially since he can’t even remember their first encounter. They both may get what neither was looking for – the best thing that could ever happen. It’s a sweet and engaging love story with a touch of steamy passion and some ex-girlfriend drama. This is a very enjoyable and entertaining romance. Although it’s a quick read, it is a fun, appealing addition to this wonderful series!
