When a patch of ice sends attorney Ginger Paulson head-over-high-heels down a flight of stairs, she has no one to care for her young son and her invalid father – until lethally sexy Kane McKay shows up at the hospital, determined to prove his cowboy chivalry. Past experience has inoculated her against take-charge men, but even Ginger isn’t immune to Kane’s invasive charm and Built Ford Tough body.
For two years rancher Kane McKay has followed the Little Buddies mentoring program’s cardinal rule – hands off his Little Buddy Hayden’s mama. But one look at Ginger’s bruised body and Kane is through watching the stubborn woman take care of everyone but herself. The feisty, curvy redhead needs his help, and he’ll give her the hands-on type whether she likes it or not.
After Kane throws out doctor’s orders and issues his own demands – her full sexual submission – Ginger realizes Kane’s caring nature extends beyond just fulfilling her physical needs.
Can the former hell-raiser convince the gun-shy single mom to look beyond his past – toward a shared future?


I’m loving this series and this book was a good surprise, especially since I didn’t had Kane as high on the McKay list. After he changed his name and all the partying, especially after the way he treated Skylar. Not the best person in the family, but he’s been kinda missing in the books and didn’t get that much vibe about it.
Ginger is a great woman and I felt bad when I realized she would end up with Kane, but they are actually great together. Ginger is a strong woman, works hard and is also raising a boy, plus lives with her father after he got in accident and is currently in a wheelchair. She’s like a super woman and needed a greet guy, but Kane was the perfect for her and he’s sweet and calm, things the family needed.
Kane likes Ginger, but since he’s responsible for her boy in a big brother, little brother place. So the relationship is no go from the beginning and every one still thinks he’s a batboy.
I liked these two together and Kane really changed a lot from those days of wild parties. He’s so good with kids and a very honorable guy, this was a good book.
