Jared Walker is a single dad who knows what it’s like to be burned by a woman. His ex-wife tormented him in a way that’s unforgivable. It makes sense that Jared doesn’t trust women. He’s not looking for love, but when his cousin Travis puts Jared in charge of the Walker family reunion, Jared just might find himself in over his head. In more ways than one.

It’s easy to think you know what’s best for you. That is, until your heart is put to the test. What happens when the cautious cowgirl and the sexy single dad come face-to-face? The chemistry threatens to scorch them both. Giving in is easy. Not falling in love is the hard part.
