When single mom Jessica Cook is at the end of her rope, she takes her sixteen-year-old daughter to Turn Around Ranch. The ranch has a great reputation for teen therapy, and Jessica prays there's room there for her and Chloe.
Wade Dawson's first priority is to help teens and their families. But he can't seem to keep his boundaries when it comes to Jessica. She's a natural beauty and sparks fly whenever he's in her vicinity, but getting too close to one of his families is flirting with fire.
But as one crisis after another befalls the ranch, Wade has a high risk of letting this woman get under his skin… And even though Jessica wasn't looking for romance, it looks like even she's about to get a second chance at Turn Around Ranch.
The inviting first romance in the Turn Around Ranch series from Madsen (Just One of the Groomsmen) finds the passion hidden in an inordinately obstinate cowboy. Single mom Jessica Cook drags her daughter, Chloe, to Colorado's Turn Around Ranch, a correctional ranch for troubled teens. Though the ranch is at capacity, the staff agrees to admit Chloe if Jessica will fill the long-vacant position of ranch cook. Determined to help her daughter, Jessica agrees, though her cooking experience is limited. As Jessica's culinary skills improve and Chloe warms to the horses, Jessica spars with cowboy Wade Dawson, whose family owns the ranch. Romantic tension is a constant between Jessica and Wade as she manages to crack some of his hardened exterior to reveal his kind and caring nature. Their sweet, sensual romance and the mother-daughter relationship between Jessica and Chloe provide the heart of this earnest novel. Readers are sure to be taken by Madsen's genuine, down-to-earth characters.
