Welcome to Dulcet, Texas, home of the legendary Briscoe Ranch Resort, where one woman will discover that even love is bigger in the Lone Star State.
Celebrity wedding planner Remedy Lane is Hollywood royalty—until a scandal sends her packing to the wilds of Texas. She has a knack for leaving disaster in her wake, but she’s determined to reboot her career at Briscoe Ranch, a luxury resort known for extravagant weddings. Little does she know that weddings don’t happen at the resort without the approval of the town’s cowboy-swaggering, too-hot-for-his-own-good fire chief, Micah Garrity.
ONE HOT SUMMER
Micah knows trouble when he sees it, and all it takes is one glimpse of Remedy’s princess airs for him to know he’s met his match. Too bad he can’t stop thinking about her—even when she brings about one disaster after another at the resort. He and Remedy clash at every turn, but they can’t stop the sparks flying between them. They come from such different worlds—does love stand a chance or will this fire burn too hot for either of them to handle?
Don't miss the first book in Melissa Cutler's One and Only Texas series!
Remedy Lane, the child of famous actors, was Hollywood royalty and a successful wedding planner until a scandal wrecked her career. She abandons Los Angeles for Dulcet, Tex., where being the special-events manager at luxury resort Briscoe Ranch Resort is her chance for redemption. But trouble keeps finding her, including an escaped elephant on a golf course, a runaway melon at a summer party, and a fire at the resort. Throw in sexy fire chief Micah Garrity, who makes it clear he has no use for a California princess, and sparks are inevitable. The attraction between the two is sizzling, but Remedy's willingness to look past Micah's chip on his shoulder about rich people is baffling. Micah can't get over her outsider status, even as his friends and town eccentrics warmly embrace Remedy and she grows into a strong woman. Micah's hero complex is tedious, and the eventual kick in the pants he receives for being a condescending jerk is extremely satisfying. Once he recognizes his imperfections, it gets easier to root for him and Remedy to get their happy ending.

Summer hot summer
Absolutely sizzling! The author develops each character vividly in our minds and endears them in our hearts. Melissa has a real knack of developing these characters and using them in the next book. I can't wait for the next one!
Hot Texas summer, Hot Texas firefighter
Was it love at first fight? In the end, it was love. I loved this author's Bomb Squad series (and I'm not a hockey fan) & love a good cowboy book. This book was fun.
**just one complaint, the story line lost a few days at the end. In editing someone should have caught that!**
