She needs a favor. He needs a bride.

Langston Carr is back in her hometown Marietta as the temporary event planner for the Graff Hotel. The first event on the calendar is the society wedding that should have been her big day with her loving groom, so when rodeo cowboy Bowen Ballantyne swaggers into the hotel, all hard-bodied and chivalrous, she thanks him the way any single woman needing to salve her pride would—she kisses him.

Bull rider Bowen Ballantyne thrives on competition, but this time his cowboy cousins have taken their one-upmanship challenge too far. He needs to find a bride by the end of the Copper Mountain Rodeo. Bowen’s never backed down from anything, so when former barrel racer Langston Carr, his tormentor from their teen years, propositions him, Bowen rockets up the heat.

A game of pretending between rivals…what could go wrong?

She lives for the thrill. He’s tasked with keeping her safe…

A family tragedy launched Drew Neisson, the middle son of a prominent Oregon ranching family, into a career in medicine. He specializes in emergency sports medicine and is proud to be part of a mobile clinic on the rodeo circuit. But when the local rodeo kicks off, he’s tasked with keeping a visiting bucking bronc rider safe or else his clinic will lose a major donor. Playing babysitter is no fun, especially when his temporary client is distractingly beautiful and a daredevil who makes his own heart pound.

Determined to escape the shadow of her childhood illness and overprotective family, Texas heiress Peyton Halliday joins the Buckin’ Babes—a touring reality show where cowgirls ride broncs and dare each other into one thrilling adventure after another. Peyton revels in the challenge and freedom until a too-handsome doctor wants to play killjoy.

Drew wants to keep the fiery cowgirl safe, but Peyton has another idea—can she encourage her new sidekick to explore his wild side?
