Ex-Army sergeant and security expert Cody Matthews recently walked away from his company to work The Lucky B Ranch just outside of Marietta, Montana. The ranch is his refuge, but his hiding out is short-lived when he’s recruited into the Marietta Bachelor Auction and his high school ex-crush bids a small fortune to spend one weekend with him.
Hollywood starlet Haley Dawn O'Malley has had decent, honest, sexy Code Matthews on the brain ever since she left Marietta after high school to pursue her dreams. Now she's back in town and determined to get Code's full attention.
After losing a female client he shouldn't have gotten involved with, Cody wants no strings, no ties to any woman. Yet, Hayley isn't about to let the tormented man deny his feelings for her, no matter the threat to her heart.
Cute, quick read!
