"Funny, heartwarming and sexy, Falcone blazes into the western romance world with a sure hit." ~ NYT Bestselling Author Cynthia D'Alba
Winning the bet should be easy. Keeping their hands off each other is a lot harder…
After losing everything, socialite Lola St. James moves to Texas to convert her only possession, Red Oak Ranch, into a luxury bed and breakfast. After all it can't be that hard to trade in a pair of stilettos for cowboy boots.
Jack Canyon, her estranged husband and co-owner of the ranch, vows to stop her from turning his home into Barbie's country hotel. He knows her promises are meaningless, and he needs the land's mineral rights to expand his business. He bets everything she won't last a week as a cowgirl. She agrees—if he'll turn over his half of the land. No problem.
Except now they're forced to live together. New flames reignite until Lola and Jack can't deny the red hot sexual tension between them. But when old betrayals resurrect, Lola must choose between running away or staying in Jack's arms…
Lola and Jack story was an amazing afternoon read for me. I love all the sexual tension that is in this book. Both of them don't want anything to do with the other person, they our both stubborn, hard headed people who don't even realize that they our meant to be together. All Lola wants is for her ex husband Jack is to leave her half of the ranch and let her open up her B&B. And Jack isn't giving in. The ranch is the only place he ever called home and he not going to let another one of her plans that she will never follow through on ruin everything he work so hard for. However, density has other plans for these two, and it not always about what you want. Sometimes it all about following ones heart and opening up and giving in a little. Love this book and I know you will too. Happy reading!

Great Story With A Heart!!
A true second chance romance that tugs on the heartstrings! Right from the start you can feel the love between Jack and Lola. The issues Jack and Lola have is written realistically and with loads of heart. It was easy to relate to these characters and root for their happily ever after. A really great story!!
I'm a sucker for second chance romances and this one fills the void. I'm rounding up from a 4.5 stars because their was a head scratcher part for me, but it doesn't really effect the storyline, just me.
Lola needs to find herself, to find her confidence and know that she can be independent from daddy's money. Convincing her soon to be ex husband that she can be is a challenge. On the road to gaining her independence though is she losing it back to Jack? And does it matter?
The story is one of character building, putting aside past hurts and stubbornness and opening your eyes to the here and now. It left me a little emotional at the end , in a good way. The ride there is enjoyable.
