Bianca King is living the golden life in metro Georgia with a booming veterinary practice and a steady string of dates–until her somewhat estranged father asks for her help in keeping the family ranch afloat. When Bianca returns to her small South Carolina hometown, she meets the latest threat, neighboring rancher Kahron Strong, a man with knowing eyes and the body of a gladiator. But this competition may just do Bianca some good…

Ever ambitious, Kahron has his eyes on the Kings ranch–among other things. Bianca rejects his offer to buy, but he’s not one to take no for an answer, even if it comes from the sexiest lips he’s never kissed. But when a series of dangerous accidents puts the business AND Bianca at risk, Kahron decides the auburn beauty is much more valuable than her land. As they come together to track the source of the trouble, Bianca will have to surrender her resolve and her heart to save the ranch …and something she cares about even more.
