An exciting cowboy novel from New York Times bestselling romance author Donna Grant!
Is he an enemy?
Dillon Young is proud that she inherited her aunt’s ranch. The problem: someone is trying to run her off and is willing to do whatever it takes. Strange, dangerous things keep happening. Dillion suspects her no-good neighbor and fellow wealthy rancher Hank Stephens. Never a man to get his hands dirty, he sends others to get the job done. So, when the irresistible Cal Bennett is found passed out drunk on her property, Dillion is on high alert. Until someone takes a shot at her and Cal springs to her rescue. When the hard-bodied, no-nonsense-talking cowboy points out that she may need some help, Dillion is inclined to reluctantly agree.
Or a lover?
Waking up on a stranger’s property with a shotgun in his face is not Cal Bennett’s idea of a good time. Never mind that the person on the other end of the barrel is one of the most fiercely beautiful women he has ever seen. Things get more interesting when he finds himself shielding her from flying bullets. It’s clear that this smart, savvy woman could use a hand and Cal is all too happy to lend any part of his body she requires. His proposal: pose as lovers until they find out who is after her ranch. As the danger rises and secrets are revealed, the passion explodes between them and there is no turning back.
The twists and turns keep coming in this gripping standalone romance from Grant (My Fiery Valentine). Dillon Young inherits her aunt Dolly's ranch in Texas's Hill Country and decides to keep the property despite escalating offers from neighboring rancher, Hank Stephens. But as she settles in, "accidents" happen with increasing frequency, starting when her new prize stallion is stolen and ending when someone shoots at her. The incidents coincide with the arrival of handsome bull rider Cal Bennett, who wakes up hungover in Dillon's barn with no memory of how he got there. Despite this suspicious introduction and Cal's longtime connection to Hank, he quickly proves himself trustworthy. When local law enforcement is revealed to be in cahoots with the bad guys, it's down to Dillon, Cal, and a special agent from the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association to get to the bottom of what's going on. And as the threat intensifies, Cal suggest he and Dillon fake a relationship for her protection, sparking intense feelings. Grant keeps the plot rocketing along, capping with a stunning betrayal readers won't see coming. It's an un-put-downable ride.
