After four years abroad, Trace MacLeod has returned home to her family's ranch in southeastern Arizona. Everything in her life is going just the way she planned it—a home in London, a brilliant career, and she's practically engaged to a gorgeous English gentleman.
But when Trace meets Jess Lawless, the cowboy turns her perfect world upside down. He's a wildcard…an unexpected, unpredictable wildcard who could win the game's hand instantly—or wreck it forever. Everything about him is virile and sexy, dark and dangerous. Definitely dangerous, and definitely not part of Trace's carefully arranged hand.
From the moment Jess Lawless sees the sensual strawberry blonde, he knows he's got to have her. He manages to corner the green-eyed woman, and is intrigued by her combination of sophistication and innocence, boldness and shyness. Even when Trace tells him she's taken, Jess doesn't let that stop him.
He's determined to make her his.
