Preservationist Lila Gentry returns to her small Texas hometown to restore the famous Chisholm Trail whorehouse where her great-great-grandmother was a madam in the 1880s. On her agenda is winning back Jake, the one that got away. But how do you rope a man who doesn't want to be wrangled?
Jake lives by one creed: Keep it simple. His ex showing up in town complicates his life and makes him think about things he'd rather forget.
When Lila's restoration project is threatened before it even begins, she turns to Jake for help. Working together stirs up old feelings, but while Lila and Jake always sizzle between the sheets—or wherever the moment takes them—it will involve some sweet-talking and finesse to bring these two together.
A fantastic feel good romance!
Lila Gentry moved away ten years ago. No, she was pushed away by her husband, Jake Winters. Jake had cancer and decided pushing her away would be better for her than living with a sick and dying husband. He wanted her to have a better life. Ten years later she's back in town and trying to win back the heart of her husband. Will her push her away again because of his annual cancer screening coming up?
There was so much more happening in this absolutely fantastic story. It flowed smoothly from beginning to end. All the characters were vibrant and each contributed to the story line in some important way. I loved Pru's journal and how the lessons mysteriously seemed to fit with whatever Lila was going through with Jake. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this second chance romance. It was fun and sexy and packed with a wide range of emotions. I look forward to reading more from this very talented author.
