She's a best-selling erotica author, scarred by life. She's sworn off romance. He's an army reserve soldier and a rancher, foreman of the family's spread. And he's NOT into city gals.
Tabby Grey was still shocked out of her mind she'd become a top-selling erotica author, overnight. Take that, you jerk of an ex-fiancé. But she's sworn off men. And sex, despite her hot-as-hell book.
Cole Dawson thought it was going to be a short job. Prop cowboy. Hell, he could do that. Anything to take his mind off his dad's surgery and the very real possibility of losing their family's home--the BC ranch. Until he met Tabby. And fell. Hard.
But when rugged Cole Dawson shows up for Tabby's book-signing tour and doesn't make a move except for being himself--reliable, decent and able to deal with all the craziness that happens on tour swiftly and successfully--it's game over. She should do something. Anything. Because the tour is over tomorrow--and then it's ba-bye.
Because she's hiding a secret. One she can't bear for the man she's head over cowboy-boot heels in love with to find out. It would simply do her in.
Because if he knows - will he stay?
