Scarlett Jannsen loves everything about Pine Springs, especially the family ranch she shares with her sister, Blizzard. Well, everything except for Josiah “the Bear” Meddleton, who recently returned from the rodeo circuit. The small town gossipers connive to reunite Scarlett and Josiah, when all Scarlett wants is to run Starwood without having to ever see her former boyfriend. All Josiah wants is a chance to prove he's changed.
The girls determine to stay away from him and the rumors that someone is after the Bear's ranch. When there's a strike too close to home, a tenuous alliance forges between the neighbors. Folks in town have always said Scarlett and Josiah can accomplish anything when they work together, if they don't kill each other first.
