The last thing I need is some hot piece of ass sauntering onto my property, tossing around her pert opinions and turning my world upside down.
No woman alive can be trusted. And that goes double for her, a typical urban goddess. She’s got curves for days, making me ache to find out what lies underneath her tight jeans.

And after I’ve had my fill, I want to force her back toward the bright lights of the glittering city. She may think part of my ranch belongs to her. But she’s wrong.
If she wants to go to battle with me, not only will I win the war … I’ll shatter her heart.
