Publisher's Summary

Rodeo producer Cole Jacobs has his hands full running Jacobs Livestock. He can't afford to lose a single cowboy, so when cousin Violet offers to send along a more-than-capable replacement, he's got no choice but to accept. He expects a grizzled Texas good ol' boy.

He gets Shawnee Pickett.

Wild and outspoken, ruthlessly self-reliant, Shawnee's not looking for anything but a good time. It doesn't matter how quickly the tall, dark, and intense cowboy gets under her skin - Cole deserves something real, and Shawnee can't promise him forever. Life's got a way of kicking her in the teeth, and she's got her bags packed before tragedy can knock her down. Too bad Cole's not the type to give up when the going gets tough....

Rodeo romance at it best

Love Kari Lynn Dell books as she has an in-depth understanding of rodeos, cowboys and ranching, plus her stories are rich and sweet. This is wonderful audio version of her book. Wish all her books had audio versions.

although i missed bennys comical narrative I loved Shawnee and her fire.
it seemed like she was the perfect fit for Cole. it was a challenging story to write and Ms Dell did it beilliantly. it was a great storyline centering around the rodeo season and how it worked. I hope ill6get more of that with Wyatt

Another great book by Kari Lynn Dell!

What a great and unique story about a cowboy with autism and the cowgirl who matches him perfectly although no one probably saw it coming. Cole Jacobs is cautious and always has a list. Who knew that would make him the perfect match for Shawnee who is wild but craves structure in her life. The book has great humor and as always Dell weaves the rodeo life into the story in the most authentic portrayal of cowboys and cowgirls you’ll find in the romance novel industry. Can’t wait for the next one. This is the third in the series.
