For makeup artist Grace Barrett, Hollywood isn't the land of golden opportunity. It's the land of difficult divas, cheating boyfriends and unemployment. So when her great-aunt offers her a free place to stay in Jackson Hole, Grace thinks she'll spend a little time in the sticks to figure out her life, and then move somewhere exciting to live out her dreams. But it turns out that there are a few more thrills in this small town than Grace was expecting….

Cole Rawlins is a rugged Wyoming cowboy born and bred. Yet he can't help but be drawn to the fascinating big-city girl who moves in across from him. He wants to get close enough to Grace to see past her tough facade, but if he does, she might see the real Cole. The one with a Hollywood history gone bad. As they discover a sizzling attraction, it becomes harder for him to keep his demons at bay—and those fires from long ago may burn them both.

They'll need more than scorching-hot passion to make this opposites-attract affair work. But if they can learn to trust one another enough to reveal their secrets, they just might have a chance at forever.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 09, 2012 – Grace Barrett is on the run from an angry ex-boyfriend in Los Angeles. The last thing she planned to do in Jackson Hole, Wyo., was make friends. The plan was to hide out for a bit with her great-aunt, who rents out rooms, before making her way to Vancouver, but living across the hall from sexy cowboy Cole Rawlins complicates everything. Grace is a survivor, a teenage runaway who fought to get herself off the streets. She is suspicious of the town’s friendliness, mistrustful of Cole’s attempts to uncover every detail about her, and defensive about letting down her guard. Cole isn’t the only person trying to reach past Grace’s defenses, as her irascible Aunt Rayleen, cheerful bartender Jenny, and new boss Eve all have a thing or two to teach her about trust. The journey to healing and learning to accept love is gradual, and every step forward is something to cheer for.

I really enjoyed this book, but two things bothered me. First, about the $8,000 that Grace was accused of stealing. Early on in the book, it was said that someone has stolen her purse, with the money in it. Later on, it was implied that she accidentally took the money, thinking it was the $1,000 loan she had asked Scot for. Confusing, but at any rate, I so desperately wanted to find out WHO has actually stolen her purse, and the money. That really rankled me. Didn't it happen at a party? Couldn't somebody figure out who it was, eventually. That sucked!

The other thing, at the end, when Grace showed up at Cole's motel room there in Montana, he talked about it being "home," when home would've been Jackson Hole, NOT Montana, right? Again, just a little confusing.

All in all, I really enjoyed the storyline, and intend to read the final Jackson Hole book right away! (I already read the other two stories and really liked them, as well.) Keep 'em comin'! Thanks!
