A wounded soldier. A woman with a secret. One sizzling summer that will change them both forever…
Mason Callahan’s plans didn’t include an IED or a permanent limp. He got both—along with a medical discharge from the Army. Now he’s back at the family ranch and nothing’s the same. For starters, there’s new hire, Grace. She’s cautious, quiet and when startled in the kitchen, wields a knife like she’s willing to use it. Figuring out what she’s hiding is essential to keeping his family safe—and has nothing to do with his attraction to her. And maybe if he tells himself enough, he’ll eventually believe it.
Grace’s new job at the Triple C Ranch is the perfect opportunity to plan her next move and make some much-needed cash. At least until the far-too-attractive Mason arrives home. He’s broody, intriguing, and a distraction she can’t afford. The smart thing would be to cut and run, but the ranch is the first place she’s felt safe in forever. She just needs to ignore the way her pulse pounds—and her panties melt—when Mason’s around, and everything’ll be fine.
