He was the object of her desire. Now she risks losing everything for him.

Deanna Hunt knows exactly who she is. Since the loss of her husband, she has stepped into her role as a dignified widow, content to live quietly and guard his memory through overseeing their business.

Until the moment she first sees Mark. From their first shared glance, she begins to question whether she really is happy with the life she has. And after their first passionate encounter, a spark is ignited in her that shows her a glimpse of the woman she could become.

But when Mark unexpectedly appears in her professional life, will Deanna be able to set aside her fear of scandal and allow herself the happiness she deserves?

Luke Everett has never played it safe. When herding cattle wasn't enough of an adrenaline rush, the rodeo circuit came next. His heart is the one thing he won't ever put on the line, and he knows how to protect himself from the kind of pain that can't be healed with a little rest and relaxation--or an occasional hospital visit. But after a rodeo accident, Luke's brother puts him on the special events staff with Lily, the one woman he's always wanted--but couldn't have.Working with Luke gives Lily Green the opportunity to see the man behind the fearless cowboy façade, and she likes what she sees. So much so that it's hard to deny the attraction simmering between them. But when she learns how much Luke knew about her ex-husband's infidelity, she'll have to decide if Luke is truly the man she can trust or if their luck just ran out.

Blanche has seen too much heartbreak to believe in love anymore. When one of the most annoying men she knows--Henry, a friend of a friend with whom she always ends up getting into heated political arguments--shows up as one of her favorite clients' possible matches, Blanche gamely messages him. But sparks fly in more ways than one, and Blanche quickly finds herself faced with an ethical dilemma--and possibly breaking her own rule about love...
