After leaving the teams, former Navy SEAL Liam Jennings used his construction background to cultivate a company that gave him a new purpose, a new way to help others. He was happy to leave Texas to build an area for veterans and people with special needs at his SEAL buddy's Colorado dude ranch. Until he ran into her. The sweet woman from his past. A woman he should've resisted but hadn't…and that lapse in control had brought nothing but bad luck, death, and destruction to his team. It wasn't her fault. It was his, and he stayed away from her ever since…until now.
Stacy Bradshaw loved helping people have fun. Her job as an activity director at a popular dude ranch gave her that opportunity every day. Making guests smile brought her joy but that joy was threatened the moment he showed up at Royal Pines. The man who'd once touched her heart then crushed it. He taught her the beauty of heat…and the cold reality of day. Lesson learned. One she never repeated. Never even considered repeating…until he walked back into her life.
Forced to work together, they soon discover that heat is very much alive, and even though they both have misgivings, they agree to give into their chemistry while he is at the ranch. But as the weeks go by without any bad luck or disasters, Liam starts to realize the real disaster was leaving Stacy. He made that mistake once and refused to do it again. But overcoming her trust issues—the ones he created—was the biggest, most important mission of his life.
