Gabe Kasper, the heartthrob of Buckhorn County, Kentucky, can have any woman he wants. But it's prickly, uptight Elizabeth Parks who gets under his skin. She thinks Gabe's some kind of hero and wants an interview for her thesis. He doesn't consider pulling a couple of kids out of the lake heroic, but he'll answer her questions in exchange for kisses…and more.
Elizabeth's unwavering in her mission to dig deep into a hero's psychology, and Gabe's the perfect specimen to study. But the price of getting the answers she needs might be her heart…
