Allison Parker needs a convincing excuse to come home to Rocky Mountain House. A hopelessly romantic reason that won’t let her mother suspect the truth—that Allison has discovered Mom is keeping a terrible secret from the family.
Gabe Coleman is struggling with two of the roughest parts of ranching: dealing with his bull-headed mule of a father, and making enough to pay the bills. When his old friend Allison offers to help him develop his ideas for organic ranching—in trade for pretending to be her fiancé—it sounds like the perfect set-up.
Yet the deception leads them in an unexpected direction, where their shared daily hells are erased by nights of heavenly distraction. It’s not supposed to be real, but once the gates are opened, there’s no denying they’ve found in each other a little bit of Paradise.
To break free of the past and face the future, though, will take more than temporary pleasures. It’ll take putting their hearts on the line.
Tortured hero with a guardian-angel complex, grief-stricken heroine willing to sacrifice everything for family. Break out the tissues, this trip to the ranch is a heartbreaker on the way to the HEA.

I loved Gabe! We’ve seen him around in the previous books and he’s more cute than ever in this one. It’s really interesting because he’s a cousin for the other crazy Colemans and he’s a great guy trying to save his family farm without his father help.
I was really nice to watch as he fell in love with Alison, because she’s a nice girl and fight for everything important to her. So she decided to return to town because her mother is dying but she needed a excuse, since she’s so successful and had promised not to return.
But I liked this couple together and they are also very hot in bed and the water! The best part in this series is family and we can see Colemans helping each other. Plus is also really nice to see those couples from previous books and discover they are still happy and handling married life.
