 Some men need to learn the hard way…

Doctor O-for-Awesome Owen Bennett is all about fixing broken things and being responsible. His motto? Rules are helpful boundaries. Rules can be fun. But when he’s temporarily put in charge of three precocious kids, chaos reigns and his list of household rules gets tossed out the window. Except one. Under no circumstance will he get involved with the kids’ tempting new nanny.

After four years flitting around Europe, waitress/dog-walker/au-pair Gracie Cooper returns home to Bounty Bay for her brother’s wedding. Working to pay off some of her crippling university debt while she’s there makes it a win-win situation. She plans to play in the sand and surf with three cute kids, indulge in a harmless flirtation with her sexy-stick-in-the-mud boss, then follow the sun overseas again come end of summer. Oh—and if she and Owen accidentally take their attraction farther than they should? Well, some rules are made to be broken…

"One wild ride from start to finish." --Vivian Arend, New York Times bestselling author

He needs to escape…

Justin Skaggs is on the road to anywhere--as long as it's far from home--when fate throws a kindred spirit across his path.

She needs to get to Oklahoma…

Phoenix Montagno can't believe her luck when she runs into the hottie from the bar. He's the key to her getting everything she's always wanted, but she can't tell him that. Luckily he's not interested in learning her story any more than he is in sharing his.

Both have secrets they don't want to share…

It's the perfect arrangement. No personal details. No talking at all. Just two strangers sharing the cab of a truck heading the direction they both need to go… until they decide to share a bed, too.

"The Oklahoma Nights series is a must read." --Lorelei James
