A STAND ALONE story in the bestselling SIX PACK RANCH series by New York Times Bestselling Author Vivian Arend
Sometimes even Angels must learn to fly…
Allison Parker needs a convincing excuse to come home to Rocky Mountain House. A hopelessly romantic reason that won’t let her mother suspect the truth—that Allison has discovered Mom is keeping a terrible secret from the family.
Gabe Coleman is struggling with two of the roughest parts of ranching: dealing with his bull-headed mule of a father, and making enough to pay the bills. When an old friend from high school offers to help him develop his ideas for organic ranching—in trade for pretending to be her fiancé—it sounds like the perfect set-up.
Yet the deception leads them in an unexpected direction, where their shared daily hells are erased by nights of heavenly distraction. It’s not supposed to be real, but once the gates are opened, there’s no denying they’ve found a little bit of paradise.
To break free of the past and face the future, though, will take more than temporary pleasures. It’ll take putting their hearts on the line.
Warning: Tortured hero with a guardian-angel complex, grief-stricken heroine willing to sacrifice everything for family. Break out the tissues, this trip to the ranch is a heartbreaker on the way to the HEA.

This book kept me interested and was a fun read.
The beginning could have been written to contain more background instead of jumping in to what I’d consider as an implausible situation.
While the description of the book indicates “a stand alone” novel, in my opinion, the various supporting characters should be more fully described to enable the feel of a truly self-contained story.
These observations are only my opinions. I would still purchase/read this book for what it is. A fictional, humorous love story with a very serious underlying sub plot.
Loved this book even more the second time I read it. Gabe had so much to overcome and Allison had her own demons, but together, they were a powerful couple and gave each other strength and love to conquer all their problems. Wonderful characters, beautiful story.
