With the way his life is going, Luc Baker is not surprised by his father’s manipulations. His career in the NHL is coming to a screeching halt, and his sister is a total basket case, so why is it any wonder that Lyle is marrying a woman less than half his age?

Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, Tara Jean Sweet is no stranger to fighting dirty. What Lyle Baker is doing to get his family back under his roof definitely qualifies as dirty, and Tara Jean is ready to play her role to perfection.

Every single time Luc steps foot on his father’s ranch he feels this same sense of fury and helplessness, and right now he is seriously not in the mood to deal with Bimbo Barbie. Tara Jean is sex personified in her high heels and barely there outfits, yet Luc is undeniably drawn to this woman who is obviously playing dumb and has more baggage than a transatlantic flight. No way, no how is Tara going to let herself fall for the ultra sexy hockey player with attitude to spare, since that would only endanger him and his family. She has a past that is getting dangerously close, so it may be time to once again to hit the road and forget having feelings for a man she has no business wanting.

Tara Jean’s big boobs and big hair pale in comparison to her even bigger heart, but she will do anything and everything not to let you see it. She is a trash talking, stiletto walking contradiction, and I love that Luc can see right through her. Not too many men would even try to see past the obvious, but you will find that Luc is no ordinary hockey jock. He and Tara Jean are the antithesis of average and boring, making every moment with them an unforgettable experience.
