Bet it on my Heart

[Wayback, Texas]

Keefe Ridge is loyal to his family, especially to his father and ranching. He will do anything for them including maybe sacrificing his own happiness in life. He’s been burned before by a woman and has sworn it will never happen again. Yet sometimes fate has a way of changing a person’s life, especially Keefe’s. He never expected to have a strong reaction to a city gal like Calli Morlani. She is everything he has tried to avoid since his mother left him. Right from the start she has a look of not able to survive on the ranch but a determination that beckons him. Keefe knows that she is the woman for him but can she really survive on the ranch.

Agent Calli Morlani has only one reason to be in Wayback and that is to get her number one star back in Hollywood. She has no idea what in Wayback has Stella Ridge wanting to stay forever. The place is small, no shopping mall and yikes cow dung everywhere. Calli never expected that by stepping onto cow dung would lead her to a rancher’s heart. She never expected to fall for Keefe yet something about him has her captured. Her main goal is to get Stella but somewhere along the way Keefe roped her into his heart. Can she just go back to Hollywood without her heart?

Ah Keefe and Calli are two people definitely so opposite from each yet the same in so many ways. They may see from different sides of the world but Wayback has a way of bringing to soul mates together. Amber Leigh did a beautiful job in bringing other characters to life like Stella and Keefe’s brothers. This was definitely a great story and can’t wait for more from this talented author.

Agent Calli Morlani came to Wayback on a mission: to bring Stella Ridge back to Hollywood. When Stella refuses, she dares Calli to take in some local color and see what Wayback has to offer. Whether that includes Stella's devastatingly charming brother becomes irrevelant once Calli finds herself in bed with him - in more ways than one…
