Publisher Description

A broken soldier looking for a second chance

Reeling from his best friend’s suicide, former Army Ranger Sterling Walker comes home to Prairie to be foreman at the brand new Resolution Ranch. His focus should be on putting his life back together—not on the high school frenemy he used to love to hate. But the gorgeous and glaring Emma Sinclaire is just as sassy and smart as he remembers—and Sterling can’t resist a challenge.

An old flame with a chip on her shoulder

Sterling is the last person Emma wants to see when she returns to Prairie. Once upon a time, she might have crushed on the town golden boy, but she can’t forget the night her nemesis took things too far. And while Sterling is as handsome and cocky as ever, she’s not falling for his charms a second time.

Their old rivalry rears its ugly head when Emma & Sterling are forced to team up on a fundraiser for the ranch. Only this time, hot kisses and even hotter nights make things much, much more complicated. Can Emma let go of the past to see Sterling as something other than the shallow teen who left Prairie years ago? And can the broken veteran move beyond the loss of his comrade to embrace a second chance at love?

A Hero’s heart

Loved this story. It’s a sad one in parts but you get the happily ever after. It touches on the problems with military members and forms of ptsd but doesn’t get into a lot of detail.

Sexy and sweet

I had forgotten how much I loved this author. This book is hot, steamy and full of great people you want to be friends with. Loved the main characters and the storyline, couldn’t put it down. Already looking for the next one. Great book.

Great story! Characters are strong, competitive adversaries since high school all grown up, with grown up struggles but with wonderful family support. Boy likes girl, girl likes boy, boy chickens out and makes girl cry, but his friends kick his butt. HEA and lots of loving, great read from a new favorite author. look forward to reading more!!
