It's Gonna Be a Wild Ride
Ben Noble needs to do some damage control. Fast. His heart has always been in ranching, but there's no escaping the spotlight on his high-powered political family. Now the only thing that can restore his reputation is a getaway to the fresh air of Aspen, Colorado. Not to mention that the trip gives Ben a second chance to impress a certain gorgeous mountain guide. But Paige Harper is nothing like the shy girl he remembers . . . she's so much more.
Paige is serious about Ben, too: seriously annoyed that the playboy cowboy is using her mountain for his PR. Once upon a time, she fell for Ben's aw-shucks charm, but the fairy tale didn't end happily. Paige doesn't intend to let down her guard again. But keeping their relationship all business and no pleasure may be harder than she thinks-especially if the moonlight, the Rockies, and a certain irresistible rancher have anything to say about it . . .
Richardson's second Heart of the Rockies contemporary (after No Better Man) returns to the Colorado Rockies with the engaging tale of an aspiring yet reluctant U.S. senator and the feisty mountain guide he falls in love with. When Paige Harper decides to hook up with politician Ben Noble, she's quickly reminded that happily-ever-after isn't a likely option. Ben is only running for the Senate to make amends for the car wreck that severely injured his beloved sister, Julia, though the accident wasn't actually his fault. Both Paige and Ben are facing old demons, questioning whether they deserve the love they seek from each other. But will they give in to the love that arcs between them, or push each other away because they think it's the right thing to do? The author's compassion shines through her beautifully flawed and earnest characters and takes readers on an emotionally wrenching journey to the elusive goal of love.
