After a disastrous ride forces world champion saddle bronc rider Chase Walker back to his family's ranch to recuperate, he’s happy to distract himself for a night with a mysterious, gorgeous woman. It should have just been a one-night stand, but she’s unforgettable.
Thanks to her cheating ex-fiancé, Ella Slade is done with rodeo cowboys...until she meets a sexy cowboy who catches a thief who stole her purse. What harm can one night of indulgence do? A lot, apparently, because when she arrives at her interview for a ranch manager job, Chase turns out to be her prospective boss. She’s adamant she won’t mix business with pleasure, but Chase suggests a deal—Ella takes the job, and they pretend that night never happened.
The longer they work together, the harder it is to pretend. Chase knows he’s falling for his midnight lover, but can he convince Ella to risk her heart again?
Saddle Bronc World Championship, Chase Walker, was off the
rodeo circuit while he recovers from a shoulder injury when he met Ella Slade
and they had a one-night stand. Little
did Chase know Ella would soon turn up at Walker Ranch interviewing for the
ranch manager position. Chase couldn’t
get Ella out of his mind and he sure didn’t expect to see her again, especially
at his family’s ranch. Working together
would definitely be a challenge. And it really
becomes a challenge when they can't keep their hands or each other.
Ella and Chase were meant to be together. It just took some work for them to get on the same page. For starters, Ella didn't want anything to do with rodeo cowboys after what she went through with her ex and it was obvious Chase loved the women too. I enjoyed seeing how they worked through their differences and finally got the happiness they deserved. This is the second book in the Texas True series. I would recommend reading Texas Forged first to get to know the characters better.
