Sidelined by a career-ending injury, rodeo cowboy Ridge Cooper feels trapped at his family's remote Wyoming ranch. He meets Sierra Dunn, who has no plans to stick around, but can he change her mind?
Desperate to find an outlet for the passion he used to put into competing, he takes on the challenge of teaching his roping skills to five troubled ten-year-olds in a last-chance home for foster kids, and finds it's their feisty supervisor who takes the most energy to wrangle.
When social worker Sierra Dunn seeks an activity for the rebellious kids at Phoenix House, she soon learns she's not in Denver anymore. Sierra is eager to get back home to her inner-city work, and the plan doesn't include forming an attachment in Wyoming-especially not to a ruggedly handsome and surprisingly gentle local rodeo hero.
A poignant, funny western romance, fans of Linda Lael Miller, Christina Dodd and Mary Jo Putney will delight in falling in love right along with Ridge and Sierra.
