You chug along life’s highway, minding your own business, and all of a sudden - wham - something smacks you upside the head. For smart and sassy widow, Julia Marlowe, it was something as simple as a flat tire that landed her squarely in the path of swashbuckling film star, Jason MacKenzie, who slams into her life with the force of an 18-wheeler.
Zach Kincaid was definitely not what Ashley Drayton was looking for – one more risk-taking, bad boy in a long list of jerks who kept breaking her heart.

Can a rough and rugged cowboy live happily ever after with a sassy and sophisticated socialite?
Divorced from one woman who put her career ahead of everything – including their young son, Chad – Josh Kincaid isn’t about to make that same mistake twice.

But his ex has other plans and painfully shy Josh has to step up and fight for his son.
Feisty and driven, Fiona Reilly has plans. She left home to break away from the expectations that she marry and stay home to raise a passel of children.

In no hurry to fall in love, Josh and his adorable son capture her heart, forcing her to choose between her dreams and building the home she didn’t know she wanted.
Love has a way of messing up even the best of intentions…
