Fran Cochran is ready to put her old life behind her. That’s why she’s packed her bags and begun a cross-country trip to Los Angeles, where she’ll be interviewing for a job at a top-notch PR firm. After an ugly divorce, this is the fresh start she needs. But when her old, beat-up Buick breaks down in the middle of the night in the sticks of Kansas, that fresh start suddenly seems very far away. Her only hope is that there’s some garage still open that can send a tow truck.
Rafe “Lucky” Turner’s won nearly every major racecar title in his division, as well as experienced all the spoils of fame and wealth there is. Now, during a short break in his busy schedule, he’s come home to Studley, Kansas, to recharge his batteries and get back to his roots by helping at his cousin’s garage. When a late-night call comes in from a damsel in distress, Rafe can’t resist jumping at the opportunity to lend a helping hand.
Rafe is the last person Fran expects to show up as her midnight mechanic, but, after getting a look at his sexy, taut body, she’s certainly not going to complain. But, with her car in the shop and no motel in sight, where will Fran stay? Will Rafe’s small-town charm encourage her to trust him? And what will happen when their instant chemistry leaves them both flirting with the idea of more than just one night of passion?
