Riding is nice. But riding with a partner is much more fun....
Duke McGraw learned the hard way that life can change in the blink of an eye. Waking up from a coma, he wants nothing more than to ride back into his life - but nothing is the same, not even Lila Sinclair. With pride the size of Texas, Duke builds a wall of anger. Bent, not broken, he climbs back into the saddle to see where the rocky trail leads him.
Lila loves Duke - always has, always will - but the wounds of tragedy run deep. Confused by Duke's emotional barriers, Lila is at the end of her rope but refuses to lose hope. Tough and determined, Lila's out to lasso her cowboy. But will her nurturing heart be broken again? A man like Duke comes with risks. When playing with fire someone is bound to get scorched.
Some flames never die, and Duke and Lila's connection is hotter than hell. Temperatures rise on the ranch and horses aren't the only thing being ridden. When the future is at stake, choices must be made. Beyond the scars and tragedy, will love rise again or will the second chance be the last?
