Smoke Montoya… Ex-Navy SEAL. Wanderer.
A man can't change the past. Yet there Smoke was, forced to deal with the deaths of his estranged parents in the wake of a deadly Texas twister. He doesn't belong at their ranch, the Lost Chaparral; he's not sure he ever did. Face to face with regret for words unspoken, he plans to sell the place and move out—fast. It's a solid exit strategy: Get in and get out before the Devil knows you're there. It would've worked until that herd of Texas longhorns showed up.
Jessie West… Super model. New York's flavor of the month.
She's only back in Texas to bury her brother Ethan and to dispose of his farm before the press catches wind she's not at the swimsuit shoot in Cannes, France. The only obstacle to her devious plan is that damned cowboy who lives down the road. The one who started a fire in her belly when she was just a kid in pigtails. The one who's as elusive as… Smoke.
