Some cowboys aren't cut out to be Prince Charming---and Claire Kowalski knows that better than anyone. She gave her heart to Ford Jarvis two years ago, yet that didn't keep him from disappearing into the sunset. Now that he's back in Big Verde, Texas, she's determined not to make the same mistake twice. But the ruggedly sexy cowboy still knows how to push all her buttons, and avoiding him is nearly impossible when she needs his help.
Ford didn't plan on returning home---ever---but when he hears that the Kowalski ranch is in trouble, he hightails it back to town. He's not eager to be reminded of the life he can never have, but his time in Big Verde is only temporary. He'll stay long enough to get the ranch up and running, then hit the road again. But when Ford finds out the new foreman he's training is Claire, still as stubborn and beautiful as ever, this cowboy is going to have to decide what matters most---repeating the mistakes of the past or fighting for a future with the only woman he's ever loved..
Claire Kowalski and Ford Jarvis had a thing and then they didn't. Ford believes he is cursed and doesn't deserve love. Claire is a take charge woman who can do it all and has the patience of a saint to put up with Ford. Ford was the foreman at Claire's Family ranch. When things got a little to real for Ford he panicked and took off. Two years later he's back. Even though he swears to himself he's going to keep his distance from Claire he can't. It's kind of a wash and repeat but can Ford change the outcome this time. Can Claire? I really enjoyed the story and the characters but Ford thing started getting old after a while. Overall a enjoyable book but not a stand out for me.
