Ex-Marine Colt Waggoner hates being back in Bluebonnet and hates the stigma attached to his family in the town. When he finds Beth Anne, he tricks her into roughing it for the weekend to teach her a lesson. But soon their mutual hostility turns into something far more passionate. When they return home, both are committed to the other, regardless of the town’s opinions. How will they endure when Beth Anne’s fiancé returns and Colt’s deception comes to light?
