Publisher Description

A STAND ALONE story in the bestselling SIX PACK RANCH series by New York Times Bestselling Author Vivian Arend​


It’s the quiet ones who take you by surprise.


Beth Danube’s emotionally abusive husband is dead and buried. So is her heart. It’s no big deal, she has all she wants: her three little boys and a fresh start in a small Alberta town. After ten years of unsatisfactory, missionary-position sex, she certainly never expected her libido to reawaken. Then one look at sex-in-boots Daniel Coleman blows the dust off her sexuality.


Sensing an edge of desperation, even fear, beneath Beth’s come-on, Daniel finds himself giving in to the powerful urge to let his normally restrained desires run wild. The lady wants non-judgmental, non-vanilla sex? She’s got it—in and out of the bedroom.


At first, friends with blazing-hot benefits is more than enough. Then Beth realizes Daniel is burning away the protective fortress around her heart…and the guilty secret she dare not reveal.


Contains: One woman determined to retake control of her life and a man with the single-minded purpose of offering her everything she needs to get there. Inappropriate behaviour in barns, change rooms, and oh-my-gawd phone sex with a cowboy.

Oh its wonderful Reading a book which is written in your hometown and in the town you live in right now . Loved this book!!


I loved it!

I really thought Blake was my favorite brother until I read Daniel and Beth's story.

I absolutely love this book, and have read it 3 times now. I loved Daniel and Beth. Beth comes to the Coleman ranch and Daniel cannot resist her and her adorable 3 boys. Beth's story is heartbreaking, and her strength made me love her even more. The care Daniel showed her made he my favorite.

One of my favorite parts about reading this series is that Vivan Arend sprinkles in stories about other members of the family. Meeting the other brothers a little bit at a time makes me excited for reading their next books.
