Fayrene Hopkins may be only twenty-four years old, but she runs her own business and has big plans - plans that don't involve falling in love yet. She's determined to make her mark on the world before settling down.
She thinks she's got life all figured out - until she meets Ryan Patterson on her latest job. Fayrene senses his interest in her, and she has to admit he gets her pulse racing. Luckily, starting a relationship with Ryan is safe - he's leaving Fool's Gold when his work contract is up.
Ryan has goals of his own and a job waiting for him in Texas. He doesn't expect to get waylaid by a sassy blonde and a cozy town. But what started out as temporary is starting to look like the real thing. If only he can convince Fayrene that some plans are made to be broken.
