They’ve been forced to work together, but they can’t agree on anything. When attraction takes over, though, it becomes tougher to ignore how much they have in common.

Lucky Howard has a job to do, and nothing’s going to stop him. As one of Misty Mountain’s top developers, he’s overseeing a complete overhaul of the only dinner theater in town. But doing so means working with the manager of that theater, who happens to be the daughter of one of the town gossips.

Jordan Strongblossom takes her work at Misty Mountain Music seriously. But the owner thinks the place needs an overhaul, and he’s put her in charge of helping Lucky and his crew. The problem is the town is suddenly protesting the changes, and those protests could interrupt their progress.

The more they work together to battle the town, though, the more they realize they have in common. And neither can forget the kiss they shared years ago, especially as the attraction between them grows.

He has an ax to grind with his high school nemesis, and dating that nemesis’s younger sister might just be the revenge he needs.

Cassady Knott vowed a long time ago that she would never date a cowboy. It wasn’t a tough promise to keep, considering there are only seven cowboys in her town, and she’s related to three of them. It hasn’t come up all that much since she’s never seen a cowboy she found attractive. Until now.

Tucker Trotter left Cupid Ridge behind fifteen years ago. After a decade of traveling around the West as a wrangler, he’s forced to come home temporarily. Within minutes, he spots Cassady, the little sister of his high school nemesis, Phoenix. He comes up with a clever way to get revenge.

He might think Cassady has no idea what he’s doing, but she’s on to him. She likes the idea of getting back at her older brother for throwing his weight around all their lives. But over time, they both find themselves developing feelings that have nothing to do with their pretend relationship.

He’s struggled to stand out, and so has she. Together they might have a plan to change that.

Chase Knott feels like he’s always proving himself. He’s worked hard to stand out from his siblings, but having a twin means he’s always seen as “the other one.” There’s only one place he feels at home—the town diner.

Lauryn Todd has her hands full as diner manager. Every morning, she opens the diner to Chase’s smiling face. Lately, she’s found herself looking forward to their interactions. Like him, she always feels like nobody really sees her. So when he comes up with an idea to give everyone something to talk about, she can’t resist.

Pretending to date is fun at first, but over time, Chase and Lauryn start to enjoy it a little too much.

For single father Elijah Knott, trust doesn’t come easy. But Zoey Trotter might just be the woman to make him love again.

Elijah Knott never planned on being a single dad. But when his wife left him without warning, he was left to raise his eight-year-old daughter on his own. Balancing the responsibilities of fatherhood and running a ranch is tough, especially when the job sends him on the road.

Zoey Trotter has never cared for the cowboys who dominate Cupid Ridge. Their egos seem too big for this town. But when Elijah offers her a job as a nanny to his adorable daughter, she can’t turn down the opportunity. It’s just temporary, after all.

For Elijah, dating isn’t an option. He’s vowed to devote his energy to fatherhood. But the more time he spends around Zoey, the harder it is to resist her. And she’s starting to believe maybe he’s not as opposed to marrying again as he thinks.

Sawyer Ludington has serious issues with the Knott family. Not only are they trying to take his family’s land, but he has inside information about his dad’s rivalry with their father. When he tracks down the beautiful woman he met at an annual festival, he’s stunned to learn she’s a member of the Knott family.

Everest Knott is six years younger than Sawyer, which means they’ve always traveled in different circles. Still, she knows of him. She flirted with him at the festival for fun, but when they kissed, the joke was on her. There was something about the way Sawyer Ludington looked at her that scrambled her brainwaves.

The more Sawyer tries to stay away from Everest, the more she appears right in front of him. He can’t get involved with her. It goes against everything he stands for. But how can he resist a woman who brings out a side of him he never even knew existed?

He needs a fake fiancée. She finds him irresistible. But soon, she’s falling for him and his hometown.

Drew Ludington left town in shame almost a year ago. He vowed never to return. But his mother needs him back, and even after all that happened, family is important. He will only come back under one condition, though. His business partner has to come with him.

Carly Dubrow owes Drew a lot. He fell into her life almost a year ago when he needed a room at her small-town inn. After only a couple of nights, he offered to help her with her business in exchange for free room and board, and in a short time, he’d pulled her business out of the red. When he asks for a huge favor, she readily agrees, and she’s especially excited to hear he wants her to play his fiancée for the weekend. She’s had a months-long crush on this cowboy, so spending time around him sounds great.

As they get to know Drew’s family, though, Carly starts to feel a little guilty. She doesn’t want to deceive the wonderful people she’s meeting, but it’s clear Drew needs her. It’s very possible she’s falling for the town of Cupid Ridge as much as she’s fallen for its former resident.

Falling in love with her client is not in her plans.

Brendon Ludington has lived his entire life in the shadow of his older brother, Sawyer. As the family ranch faces serious legal troubles, though, he can’t help but speak his mind. It helps when he manages to befriend the family attorney, especially when his mom starts playing matchmaker.

Marnie Chapman takes her job as an attorney seriously. Her dream has long been to make partner at a law firm in her hometown, and she’s on her way to achieving it. But as she spends time with Brendon Ludington, she starts to feel things she hasn’t felt in a long time. As a professional, she knows she has to battle those feelings, but it’s becoming increasingly impossible.

As the deadline to return home looms, both Brendon and Marnie fight a growing attraction. Once duty calls, Brendon’s fears kick in. He swore he’d never again fall in love with a woman who can’t stay in his beloved small town, and that is exactly what he’s done. He can’t leave Cupid Ridge, and her home is hours away, so how can it possibly work?
