She’s no one’s second choice … 

Slater Highwater had his own reasons for coming home to Last Stand, Texas. And if anyone wants to know why a guy with a philosophy degree from an Ivy League school was now running the historic Last Stand Saloon, he has a stack of ready answers, none of which are completely true. 

But Joey Douglas never asked that question. Perhaps because she and Slater are always carrying on conversations no one else can follow. Or perhaps because she suspects she knows why he came home – her glamorous and calculating older sister broke his heart. 

Joey has longed for Slater since she first laid eyes on him, but her sister will always be an insurmountable barrier between them. Sure she and Slater click intellectually and sparks ignite whenever they’re in the same room, but Joey will never, ever settle for being Slater’s consolation prize no matter how much she loves him. 

Can Joey step out of her sister’s shadow? Can Slater convince Joey she’s his true soul mate?

He’s always left small towns and women in his rearview mirror… until he meets her

NASCAR driver Finn Delaney has cultivated a bad boy image and rakish charm that has served him well on the track and with the media. But now sidelined by a wreck that may have ended his career, Finn feels lost and vulnerable. A quick hook up with sexy military hero Lancey Maverick seems like a perfect opportunity to press his reset button and regain his mojo.

Finn lights more than a spark with his sexy smile and arrogant confidence, but Lancey’s had her fill of boy-men who don’t take life or their responsibilities seriously. She’s only in town to settle her brother’s affairs. A hook up with Finn, no matter how hot, is ill-advised. But Lancey’s never played it safe.

Both Finn and Lancey are at a career and life crossroads. A summer fling looks like it could lead to something more, but can Finn learn to stay when life gets hard, and can Lancey learn to trust and accept the feelings of a man who lives in the fast lane?

Can she tempt him to take a second chance? 

As the oldest brother, pro bull rider Axel Wolf has always worn the yoke of family responsibility. Seven years ago when he was at the top of his career, he gave it all up to return home to Last Stand, Texas, to raise his youngest brother and take over the reins of their massive cattle ranch. But his career wasn’t the only thing he left behind. A chance meeting with the woman he never stopped loving, Cruz, blows apart his work-only life, and he starts to want more than just his ranch. Axel’s never backed down from a challenge, but this is one risk, the cowboy’s not sure he can take. 

Former barrel racer and now single mom Cruz Lopez excels at staring down obstacles and winning. A newly certified physician’s assistant, she’s determined to build her career and create a new life for herself and her son in Texas just as long as it’s far from one sexier than sin Last Stand cowboy, who once nearly derailed her dreams and goals. Only it’s not. Luckily it’s temporary, and Cruz is confident she can avoid Axel for a month except a horrific accident throws them together when they both stop to help. Axel was her first and only love, and now she’s struggling to remember all the reasons he’s wrong when he feels so right. He told her once he never wanted a family. So why is he inviting them both on picnics and teaching her son to ride and rope?
