1 Cowgirl Cop + 1 Single Dad = Double the Desire!

Running a ranch for troubled kids, policing the town and raising a sonโ€”Ash McCune is in complete control of her hectic life. Till one sexy single dad arrives on her Cedar River ranch with his daughter. Cole Quartermaine is rich, successful, a good father. But in weeks, he's leaving. So why does he make her feel something she hasn't felt in yearsโ€”like a woman?

Cole needs this ranch to connect with his newfound daughter. What he doesn't need is a jaw-dropping attraction to the cowgirl cop who runs it. Nor hero worship from her son. He's got three weeks to resist her and return to the city, a party of twoโ€ฆor stay and make a family of four.


A lesson in going with the flow and picking up the pieces when life drops surprises in your lap! Characters with a really fun connection with each other make this a great read. There’s laughter and tears, heartfelt emotions and bittersweet memories. Really enjoyed this return trip to Cedar River!

Cole Quartermaine didn’t expect to be here at this point in his life, yet here he is, a father to a newly discovered teenage daughter. He’s at his wits ends with how to deal with her, so he’s taken a friend’s advice and contacted Ash McCune. Not only is she a well-liked cop in Cedar River, South Dakota, but she’s also experienced in working with troubled teens on her ranch and getting through to them. Cole will do just about anything to be able to connect with his daughter and be the parent that she needs.

Neither of them are prepared for the massive attraction they both feel the moment they set eyes on each other. She’s a single mother and determined to never let herself be hurt by a man again, and he was already floundering with what he wanted to do with his life even before this surprise child came into his life. Will they be able to resist each other and concentrate only on the problem at hand, or will they muddy the water and try to figure out how to make a future together work?
