A STAND ALONE story in the bestselling SIX PACK RANCH series by New York Times Bestselling Author Vivian Arend
Nothing comes easy. You’ve gotta work for it.
Matt Coleman always figured at this point in his life, he’d be settled down with a family. Since his ex split for the big city, though, no way will he give anyone else the chance to drop-kick his heart. Physical pleasure? Hell, yeah, he’ll take—and give—with gusto, but nothing more.
Hope Meridan is working long hours to hold on to her new quilt shop, going it alone since her sister/business partner ran off. Sex? Right, like she’s got the time. Not that she doesn’t have the occasional dirty fantasy about Matt. Fat chance he’d dream of knocking boots with her—the younger sister of the woman who dumped him. Nope, she’ll just have to settle for friendship.
Friends would be far easier if there wasn’t something combustible going on between them. And when casual interest starts to grow into something more, their tenuous bond strengthens in the heat of desire. But it may not survive the hurricane-force arrival of the last person either of them ever wanted to see again…
Warning: Small-town rivals, men in pursuit and family meddling—in good and bad ways. Look for a cowboy who knows how to rope, ride and rein in a hell of a lot more than eight seconds of sheer bliss.

The bitter cold of Alberta, Canada, is made toasty warm by the super-sexy Coleman brothers of Six Pack Ranch. Arend's third Six Pack erotic romance (after Rocky Mountain Haven) finds Matt Coleman trying to shake off the disappointment of his longtime love, Helen, leaving Rocky Mountain House for brighter prospects in Calgary. Enter Helen's younger sister, Hope, a sometime dancer and local business owner. Matt and Hope can't deny their mutual attraction, despite their earlier siblinglike relationship and vow to just be friends. As they become lovers and start to think about taking it further, Helen jealously attempts to sabotage their romance. Arend's skillfully written erotic passion never veers off into the improbably athletic, though readers unfamiliar with her writing may be surprised by the m nage scene, and Hope and Matt are nicely realistic as they deal with the interventions of their various siblings.
