Candace Hilt works with stray and injured animals, takes care of five of her own loveable mutts, deals with meddling sisters, and can hold her own at a poker table full of rowdy men. Her heart is as big as all of Whisper Hollow but not quite big enough to fit a serious relationship into the mix. That was reaffirmed when she came face-to-face with the walking, talking reminder of that long-ago summer when one stupid guy ruined it for all the rest.
When Tad Dundee met Candace he’d been six feet of baseball-capped, country boy, down-home idiot and probably still is. He is the guy who broke Candace’s heart all those years ago because his feelings for her scared him then, and even now, as a grown man, doesn’t find her or relationships any less intimidating.
With the past tucked neatly behind them and neither of them looking for anything serious, they’d fallen into a very easy, comfortable friendship until their friends challenge them to a summer of commitment. Tad and Candace’s pride won’t let them turn it down. They are thrust into a fake relationship with each other that has them both battling against a sizzling hot attraction and that even hotter old flame. Will winning the bet mean losing everything all over again, or are they about to be dealt one lucky deal?

Take one man. Add in annoying charm and sexy good looks. Toss back a few too many drinks and Ronnie may find her moral compass spinning out of control.
Ronnie Hilt is the ideal business woman and golden child—successful, dedicated, and an absolute perfectionist. Joe Aarons can ruffle her cool like no one can, but due to a heartache looming in her past Ronnie is looking for stability not a tall, virile, dangerous sheriff.
Officer Joe Aarons has been after Ronnie since the day they met. He may come off as the carefree, smirky, risk-taker that Ronnie thinks he is, but deep down he’s looking for the permanence and family he’s never truly had. While there are many other women in town who wouldn’t be opposed to settling down with the town’s hot cop, he can’t ignore the chemistry sparking with Ronnie.
A drunken wild night allows Ronnie to let her hair down and with it her walls and inhibitions. In the morning Joe is hoping for more, while Ronnie is trying to pretend it never happened. It’s just her luck that one home pregnancy test several weeks later proves that she can’t. With a baby on the way, Ronnie tells Joe she wants to marry him for the sake of appearances. Joe’s left trying to decide how far Ronnie will go to keep up her good girl reputation, and to what lengths he’ll go to have her and the family he’s always wanted.
