On a dirt road marked by haunting secrets, three strangers caught at life’s crossroads must decide what to sacrifice to protect their own agendas…and what they’re each willing to risk for love.

If there’s any place that can convince Angela Harold to stop running, it’s Ransom Canyon. And if there’s any man who can reveal desires more deeply hidden than her every fear, it’s Wilkes Wagner. Beneath the rancher’s honorable exterior is something that just might keep her safe…or unwittingly put her in danger’s path.

With his dreams of leaving this small Texas town swallowed up by hard, dusty reality, all Wilkes has to show for his life is the Devil’s Fork Ranch. Though not one to let false hope seduce him, he can’t deny the quiet and cautious beauty who slips into his world and changes everything.

Lauren Brigman finally has freedom at her fingertips. All she needs is Lucas Reyes’s attention—a look, a touch, some sign that she’s more to him than a girl he rescued one dangerous night. But now it’s her turn to rescue someone, and the life-altering decision may cost her more than a chance with Lucas.

Lucy Baumgardner, working partner in a law firm in Philadelphia, works too hard. So says the senior partner, who just happens to be her father. When she’s forced to take a two week hiatus, she assumes two weeks of pedicures, massages, and poolside relaxation with a glass of wine won’t kill her. But things aren’t always what one expects.

To her horror, city girl Lucy ends up stuck on a working ranch with no phones, cell service, or WiFi. Her acute shock dictates she will NOT play cowgirl for two weeks. Making matters worse, Stace Levin, the very handsome owner/operator, does nothing to make things easy for her. Her days are filled with manual labor, and one mishap after another amuses Stace to no end. In fact, he finds her not only funny, but smart, stubborn, and very beautiful.

Knowing it’s for only two weeks, Lucy succumbs to the ranch lifestyle. Every day something happens to change her mind about the good looking cowboy, Stace. One day he’s a pompous ass, and the next, well… The way he looks in those tight wranglers, those inviting arms, and his generous warm lips and mouth can sure as hell change one’s mind about the guy.

When Lucy’s hiatus comes to an end, and she gets involved in a legal mess of two other ranch guests, will she lend her expertise to rescue Stace, and save the ranch, or will she turn up the music?

But someone desperate enough to kill doesn’t want Lyn working with Atlas. Now only teamwork, trust, and courage can save two troubled hearts and the dog who loves them both . . .
