Will Gold Valley’s most reclusive cowboy finally find a reason to heal?

As a former EMT and a wildland firefighter, there’s no one Jacob Dalton can’t rescue–except himself. Since his best friend’s tragic death, Jacob has isolated himself…until Vanessa Logan returns to Gold Valley. He saved her life during a medical call years ago, and he’s never forgotten her. The instant jolt of heat between them takes him by surprise, but he knows that giving in to it would only end in disaster.

But how can he pick his next move when he can’t remember how he got here in the first place–much less the beautiful woman who appears at the ranch, claims she knows him and warms his cold heart for the first time since he woke up in the hospital?

Rodeo Queen Hannah Monroe gave up her crown for Ty Everett and her innocence. What she wants from Ty now is a divorce. But Ty can’t remember her–or their secret wedding, or even the son she never meant to hide from him–and Hannah is torn. How can she leave the man she can’t forget and still loves despite herself?
