For rancher Chance Braxton, Josie Monroe was the classic girl next door. He’d fallen early and hard, but because her tender heart had belonged to his careless and indifferent brother, who took off years ago, Chance had been permanently friend zoned sinceJosie was a teen. Now Josie’s running her failing ranch all alone, and it’s time for Chance to step up and keep a promise he made to her dying mother–marry Josie and combine their ranches. Dare he hope that his proposal will eventually win her heart?
Josie Monroe doesn’t want help or need to be saved by anyone– especially her wealthy ranching neighbor and forever thorn in her paw Chance Braxton. The serious, way too handsome know-it-all cowboy has starred in way too many of her fantasies, but he still sees her as the heart-broken teen who sobbed her heartbreak on his shoulder. She’s determined to prove Chance and the town wrong. She can save her ranch and rebuild her father’s legacy alone.
Only Chance won’t leave her in peace. Then he proposes and Josie’s problems are just beginning. So why does her pulse kick up overtime he rides on her land and tips his Stetson?
