Michael Bentley-James had life all figured out.
Great career, big house, a beautiful wife, and an adorable daughter, in the best city in North America. But when life threw him a curve ball, crumbling the very foundations of his happiness, Michael is forced to tear down his picket fence and move back to the place he grew up. Hawkin Spring, Texas, is a far cry from the city life he had traded it all for.
The family ranch was never his plan, but neither was raising his daughter alone. It wasn’t city living, but it was uncomplicated, and Michael loved that. No time for dating, no interest in falling in love ever again, and absolutely no room for another woman in his life.
Then, suddenly thrust upon him by his meddling mother, she arrived…
Penny Lane needed a fresh start. With her divorce finally signed, sealed and delivered, she was ready to break free of the humdrum, glum place she no longer
felt was home. When she is offered employment as a live-in nanny to an eight-year-old in Texas, Penny packs up her life and makes the trip from the UK to
the USA. But what she finds there is not exactly what she expected. Having freed herself from an emotional train wreck of an ex-husband, it’s soon clear that Penny has swapped her old life for a new kind of misery, and his name is Michael Bentley-James
His stunning physique, handsome features, and southern twang drive Penny to distraction the moment she stumbles head-first into his world. Which is a relief since they’re the only good qualities he possesses.
But Penny is determined to stick things out, no matter how difficult the gorgeous, callous cowboy may make it for her.
