I’m the only Dixon brother to step up when our family crumbled.When I took over the ranch, I lost everything, career included.My heart hadn’t been in it anyway. It couldn’t. A girl stole it a dozen years ago when she left, dreaming of a world outside our small town.
Now she’s back.Different hair. New style. Kid clutching her hand.Wrecked by the man who put the ring on her finger.
Not a trace of the Madison Black I knew.A downhome girl with the sweetest smile and drawl.The little rebel who would sneak out to my truck in the middle of the night.
But with one conversation, that girl starts to reappear.One kiss, the years apart fade away.One night, I vow to never let her go again.
Except she’s not mine to keep, and the glaring reminder why just arrived in town.
