Left staring at a termite tent, Julie Remington moves into the McKetterick mansion to stay while her cottage is bombed for bugs. She and her son do not mind "roughing" it, even though she is a teacher and her three-legged dog is coming along for the stay, but she didn’t bargain for the lean legs encased in denim ending in cowboy boots that end up propped up on the kitchen table at breakfast each morning in the form of Garrett McKetterick.
Garrett had thought his life was on track and that his political career had nowhere to go but up. He believed in his boss, who was a dedicated family man and a good leader. That is, until the man shows up at a party where his wife is also attending with a blond bombshell on his arm and announces that he has found his one true love. While the man flushes Garrett’s career and trust in one evening, the cowboy heads home to the safe feel of leather and sweat and sun...to find a beauty and a boy and an irresistible dog in his home.
Brought together by family in a town that is tied together by community and unity, these two must get past their own issues with trust and see if they have it in them to ride off into the sunset, or if it is easier to go back to life as they had it before everything they knew was tossed to the wind.
A fun story filled with many subplots that keep the reader engaged, this story has you shaking the dust off your boots and settling down by the fire to listen to the crickets chirp. Nothing will warm you up faster than a gorgeous cowboy, and this story delivers that in the form of Garrett. But at the same time, he is a city slicker who was born for the country but chose to leave. Will he go back to his roots or will he continue to ramble like a tumbleweed? Endearing as well as steamy, a fantastic read that will leave you smiling and wishing you had a man with a bit of a southern drawl to come home to.
