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?
This is a romance that includes no swearing, no violence, and no sexual content (beyond a few light kisses).
