A Leatherneck by any other name can still kick ass, which is
just what retired United States Marine Corps Captain Tanner
Wilks plans to do when he returns to his Texas family ranch
to care for his ailing father. And nothing will stop him
from achieving his missionâ€”not even a lithe, brown-eyed town
veterinarian who seems hell-bent on driving him wild.
Captain Tanner Wilks, honorably discharged from the U.S.
Marine Corps, returns home to find his father struggling
after his latest heart attack. Worse yet, Julia Hellerâ€”the
sexy new girl in town that he once spent a hot night withâ€”is
the resident veterinarian whoâ€™s made a home for herself at
Round Top ranch, and doesnâ€™t seem to be in a rush to repeat
their time together.
It falls on Tannerâ€™s shoulders to take on the ranch and keep
an eye on his father before he falls victim to another heart
attack. But Julia doesnâ€™t appreciate Tanner coming in or
pursuing her. Even if heâ€™s hot as hell and can make her
quiver with just a look. Ousting her may give Tanner the
leverage he needs to corral his father, but first he has to
wrestle with his own heart.
