Fiercely independent single mom Quinn Christiansen has been raising her young son and figuring out how to pay his pediatric hospital bills since the day he was born. And the truth is, she loves the notorious reputation she's gained in Cactus Creek of having a heart too hard for any man to break, courtesy of her deadbeat ex who took off and left her with a mountain of his gambling debts to pay off after she got pregnant.
So color her pissed when the one man in town not afraid of her ball-busting charm turns out to be another gambling musician. Granted, this one is nothing like her ex. Not only is he ridiculously handsome and surprisingly sweet under his gruff and gritty exterior, he's also wholly determined to downright invade her life.
A dirt-and-jeans landscaper by day with a small local gig to perform for a packed house by night, Rylan Grey isn't used to getting a woman so worked up...well, not in a bad way, at least. Sure, he's made some gambles to get to where he's at, but they were all of the life variety, with risks as important as the rewards, fate betting as the house, and most importantly, not a single dollar in play.
While Rylan never wagers anything he's not willing to lose--namely his heart--he's more than ready to ante up once he sees past guarded and gorgeous Quinn's icy defenses. Quick as a firecracker, loyal to a fault, and sweet when no one's looking, she could very well be his riskiest gamble yet.
