A fire on her ranch sent rodeo champ Jake Reiner blazing into Maggie Langford's life, disrupting her ordinary existence and igniting desires she thought were long gone. But the single mom's temperature reached the boiling point when the cowboy temporarily set up home with her- under her hospitalized father's orders. Jake was like a hot branding iron- Maggie knew she shouldn't touch him, but she couldn't resist the burning temptation his kisses kindled inside her. She knew the cold reality of loving a hot blooded cowboy who itched for the open road. But maybe she was the special woman who could warm Jake's hardened heart and convince him to stay...forever.
