The passion that started it all. The love that lasted a lifetime.
The Twelve Horseshoes Ranch is getting ready for a joyous event, the double wedding of sons Tyler and Channing to their beautiful fiancées Michelle and Cassidy. John Jacob and Teri-Lyn are determined to make it an affair to remember.
As the Blakes prepare for the double wedding, John Jacob and Teri-Lyn reminisce about how they fell in love. Turns out it wasn’t always a smooth ride for the handsome, brooding, driven cowboy who was out to right a wrong done to his family. And things were certainly not easy for the beautiful and strong-willed redhead who knew exactly what she wanted out of life, and it certainly wasn’t a man who couldn’t stay put.
As the entire family gathers for activities and fun the week of the wedding, secrets are revealed and past history comes to light. The Blakes have a few things to contend with for the big day, but they do it the only way they know how—as a family.
Bo Jamison isn't looking forward to going home. While he does look forward to seeing his mom, he’s less than eager to see his less-than-friendly younger half brothers. And as CFO of Blake Enterprises, he's got his hands full with a new business deal that demands his full attention. Bottom line: he doesn't need the drama. But when the beautiful Waverly twins move into the condo across the hall, he finds the drama has just begun. Autumn Waverly is sexy and sophisticated, and definitely interested. Summer, not so much. Quieter and more down-to-earth, Summer seems as if she'd rather Bo just go away. Or is it the other way around? Between trying to figure out which twin is which, and finding reasons to spend time with both of them, Bo finds himself in the enviable position of having two beautiful women on his arm.
But when one of them knocks on his door late at night and invites herself into his bed, Bo's not sure what came over him. Or who. The passion between them is electric, but the sisters aren't talking. In fact, it almost seems as if they're toying with him. The who's-who game is fun at first—until Bo finds himself falling for his mysterious midnight visitor. If only he could figure out who she was—and why she wouldn't tell him...

Reconciling the past. Speeding toward the future. Can a cowboy's heart survive the now?
Country singer Tate McGill has never been happier. He's engaged to Isabelle, the woman of his dreams, and his music career has shot him straight to the top. With his adopted Blake clan gathered in Las Vegas for the last leg of his world tour, Tate's excited to publicly announce his engagement. But his excitement is bittersweet. Isabelle has found a collection of beautiful, unpublished country songs by Tate's late birth mother and a lifetime's worth of letters between her and his adopted mother, Teri-Lyn, matriarch of the powerful Blake family. Tate's given all he has to overcome his abusive past and build a future for himself and Isabelle, but he's not sure if his birth mother's words will bring him closure, or more pain.
Isabelle Reed has a wonderful secret—and terrible timing. She's engaged to her sexy country music star, Tate McGill, and after months of physical therapy to heal the arm broken by her abusive ex-husband, she's finally able to play her violin professionally again. But best of all, she's pregnant! Unfortunately, her timing couldn't be worse. Tate's afraid to have children, fearing he'll perpetrate the cycle of abuse he suffered as a child. And with the shadows of his birth mother's letters, and Isabelle's disapproving father coming to meet “that cowboy,” Tate has enough on his plate. His entire career is riding on this last gig of his tour and on the film that’s being made about him and his band. He can't be distracted by the ghosts of his past that Isabelle knows her news will raise. If she can just hide her morning sickness until after Vegas…
But Isabelle's father won't be appeased, and when Tate’s past follows him to Vegas, it only fuels her father's disapproval. With the baby coming, Isabelle wants everyone to get along. Will she really have to choose between her new life with Tate and her father's love?

The “Sam” he was expecting turns out to be Samantha—beautiful, smart, and a tough-as-nails ex-cop in a polished, professional package. And she’s just the kind of woman who could drag him under…
