Blame It On The Cowboy
All of Logan McCord's carefully laid plans erupt the day he finds his would-be fiancee in bed with another man. Tonight, just once, Logan is acting on instinct. And that instinct is telling him to say yes to the cute stranger looking for a no-strings fling with a Texas cowboy.
When chef Reese Stephens made her bucket list, she mistakenly thought she had weeks to live. Not that she regrets her one-night stand with the gorgeous rancher. But she does regret leaving an heirloom watch as a parting gift. Tracking Logan down is easy. Walking away again is another matter. Because Reese's crazy past and Logan's battered heart are no match for the kind of chemistry that could turn one night into the start of a passionate lifetime.
Ranch hand Rico Callahan struggled to earn everything he has, but sitting proud at the top of the most successful cattle operation in Texas doesn't change that he was born unworthy of Spring Hill sweetheart Natalie London. Their elopement years ago was a mistake. Their quickie divorce was supposed to put it all in the past. Now Natalie's back in town claiming they're still married — and everything's at stake.
Natalie can't wed the perfect-on-paper man her domineering father chose for her when she's still married to her true love. And she definitely can't walk away when seeing Rico again only makes her want him more than ever. Sex for old times' sake sounds better than good, but one touch shows them what matters — and what they'll have to risk to turn a sizzling reunion into forever.

But slowly the desert starts to reveal its secrets – and Amber must decide which horizon to follow . . .
