A STAND ALONE story in the bestselling SIX PACK RANCH series by New York Times Bestselling Author Vivian Arend
Sometimes even Angels must learn to fly…
Allison Parker needs a convincing excuse to come home to Rocky Mountain House. A hopelessly romantic reason that won’t let her mother suspect the truth—that Allison has discovered Mom is keeping a terrible secret from the family.
Gabe Coleman is struggling with two of the roughest parts of ranching: dealing with his bull-headed mule of a father, and making enough to pay the bills. When an old friend from high school offers to help him develop his ideas for organic ranching—in trade for pretending to be her fiancé—it sounds like the perfect set-up.
Yet the deception leads them in an unexpected direction, where their shared daily hells are erased by nights of heavenly distraction. It’s not supposed to be real, but once the gates are opened, there’s no denying they’ve found a little bit of paradise.
To break free of the past and face the future, though, will take more than temporary pleasures. It’ll take putting their hearts on the line.
Warning: Tortured hero with a guardian-angel complex, grief-stricken heroine willing to sacrifice everything for family. Break out the tissues, this trip to the ranch is a heartbreaker on the way to the HEA.

I love Gabe Coleman...there I said it. Allison Parker comes back to Rocky because of family issues and ropes Gabe into helping her out by pretending to be her fiancé. Not that she had to twist his arm, it is the perfect way for Allison to help him with his dream of organic farming if he can convince his stubborn (hateful) dad that it is the way to save the ranch. What starts out as a favour to each other quickly turns into so much more and sometimes makes you realize what you didn't know you were searching for was right there all along..emotional, sexy and fun this series just gets better..also I seriously love Gabe...
Truly an angel!
Gabe lives up to his name - he is an angel! Allison needs his help and he gives it to her without question. This is a theme in Gabe's life in his dealing with everyone. Allison sees this and wants to speak out but doesn't feel it is her place in their fake relationship. Neither can deny their attraction to each other so they add a sexual relationship to their story but Allison still holds out on the emotional attachment. Gabe falls and lets Allison know but she still holds back admitting her feelings for him even though he can see them, she won't vocalize them. There are some deeply emotional scenes along with their heated interactions. After all the emotional turmoil has happened and it is time to move forward, Gabe confronts Allison to get her to admit her love for him - just perfect!
