When a cowboy gets a city girl boss ...

To Wyoming ranch foreman Tucker Gates, the only good owner for the Double Bar X is an absentee one. That's how it had been for 10 years. And now here comes divorcee Jenny Peters. Bringing her two whining, spoiled kids and her city-bred fairy-tale views of life – and love – to his corner of Wyoming.

The ranch isn’t big enough for the two of them much less the house they’re sharing.

Jenny isn't going to let grumpy cowboy Tucker dim her sunshine or scare her away from the new life she needs to build for her kids and her new role as a single mother. No matter that he can be as hard as the mountains around them. No matter that she finds totally unexpected comfort from his rough strength.

But what next? Because Tucker Gates is a lot of things, but he's absolutely clear that he is not a family man.
