She lives for the thrill. He’s tasked with keeping her safe…
A family tragedy launched Drew Neisson, the middle son of a prominent Oregon ranching family, into a career in medicine. He specializes in emergency sports medicine and is proud to be part of a mobile clinic on the rodeo circuit. But when the local rodeo kicks off, he’s tasked with keeping a visiting bucking bronc rider safe or else his clinic will lose a major donor. Playing babysitter is no fun, especially when his temporary client is distractingly beautiful and a daredevil who makes his own heart pound.
Determined to escape the shadow of her childhood illness and overprotective family, Texas heiress Peyton Halliday joins the Buckin’ Babes—a touring reality show where cowgirls ride broncs and dare each other into one thrilling adventure after another. Peyton revels in the challenge and freedom until a too-handsome doctor wants to play killjoy.
Drew wants to keep the fiery cowgirl safe, but Peyton has another idea—can she encourage her new sidekick to explore his wild side?

His granddad, flanked by his three determined daughters, announces his plan to sell his legacy ranch after the rodeo. Hoping he’ll reconsider, Beck and his two cousins launch the Rodeo Bride Game.

Ashni Singh has loved Beck since high school, but she’s done living out of a suitcase on the rodeo tour. She’s ready to put down roots and build her own career. Learning she’s unexpectedly expecting makes her even more determined to make a new life. So when Beck dutifully proposes, she does what any self-respecting, career-oriented, educated woman at the end of her patience would do. She says no.

Jake Ruben never intended for that particular image to end up in a stranger’s messages, but he’s not complaining. His textmate is sexy and fun and—unlike anyone in his real life—knows nothing of the burns that limit his mobility. The new pastry chef at his mother’s Jewish bakery does, and she’s as tempting as her cupcakes. Soon he’s texting less and seeing Avery more.

School teacher and single mom Laurie Wilkes has her feet planted firmly on the ground. She will not be swayed by a handsome, sexy bull rider who has given her son a serious case of hero worship and makes her feel fully alive for the first time in years.
