He's the middle of the three Carson brothers and is as
stubborn as they comeâ€”and he won't thank a beautiful
stranger for getting in his way!
Drake Carson is the quintessential cowboy. In charge
of the family ranch, he knows the realities of this life,
its pleasures and heartbreaks. Lately, managing the wild
stallions on his property is wearing him down. When an
interfering so-called expert arrives and starts offering her
opinion, Drake is wary, but he can't deny the longingâ€”and
the challengeâ€”she stirs in him.
Luce Hale is researching how wild horses interact
with ranch animalsâ€”and with ranchers. The Carson matriarch
invites her to stay with the family, which guarantees
frequent encounters with Drake, her ruggedly handsome and
decidedly unwelcoming son. Luce and Drake are at
odds from the very beginning, especially when it comes to
the rogue stallion who's stealing the ranch mares. But when
Drake believes Luce is in danger, that changes
everythingâ€”for both of them.
