The starry-eyed girl is long gone for Sarah Allen, and in her place is a woman who has a chance to stand on her own two feet for the first time in ten years. Her marriage was a nightmare, but unfortunately the death of her husband has not meant the end of her troubles.
Boxing gave Jackson Raines the means to move beyond the troubles of his youth, but leaving the ring and buying a ranch is where his heart is. The beautiful, rugged country and extreme weather appeals to him like nothing he has ever known.
Getting back home to Wind Canyon is all Sarah can think about; a safe place to raise her little girl and heal after years of mental and physical abuse. The little cottage on Raintree Ranch is exactly what she is looking for, but with it comes Jackson Raines, and she is not at all sure her heart and body can stand the heat. Jackson’s first impulse is to send Sarah packing, considering the way she treated him in high school, but one look into her beautiful blue eyes, and his heart remembers that crush all too well. Her husband’s legacy of crime comes calling soon after Sarah’s arrival, and before Jackson knows it, he invests himself one hundred percent, knowing that if she burns him again, he has no one to blame but himself.
Rough, tumble, and ready to ride anytime, anywhere is Jackson Raines head to toe. He is so not just a pretty face, but a man who has built his own legacy against all odds. Sarah’s character may have been the girl of his dreams, but it is obvious that she learned the hard way how to become the woman he deserves. Their story heats the blood, races the heart, and makes you hungry for more.
