Quick pace story featuring western, Texas theme. Ferguson Delaney is dying and he is calling for his family to all come together before he goes. His grandson Tucker hasn't been back to see him in four years. It isn't that he doesn't want to see his family, it is just that he is worried about seeing Micah again. On Micah 18 birthday, the two men had one night together, a night that neither or them can forget.

Micah will do anything to help the family that took him in when he was orphaned as a boy. When the ranch they all rely on begins to go under he can only think to do one thing--ask Tucker for help. The only problem is Tucker is the only man that Micah has ever loved and he left Micah years before. He'll have to risk everything just to go ask for help, but when Tucker suggests something drastic to save the ranch, can Micah survive when Tucker leaves again.

J.L. Langley does a nice job putting together this love story. The characters are wonderful. It might be nice to see the others in future stories if she decided to do a sequel.

This book is an expanded reissue from a previous story with the same name.

At the tender age of seven, newly orphaned Micah Jiminez lost everything—and got lucky. The Delaney family opened their hearts and their home, treated him like one of their own. One Delaney in particular, though, became more than a brother to Micah. The handsome and protective Tucker is the man to whom he wants to give his love.

But after a single passionate night together, Tucker rebuffs him and hightails it to Dallas to pursue his dreams. Leaving Micah to pick up the pieces of his broken heart—and feeling like a fool.
The impending death of the Delaney patriarch brings an unsavory relative out of the woodwork, threatening Micah’s beloved adopted family. They’re going to need all hands in the fight to keep The Bar D from being pulled out from under them all—including Tucker. Micah steels himself to convince the man he can’t forget to come home.
To his everlasting surprise, it’s Tucker who comes up with the perfect solution: a marriage of convenience—to Micah. His gut tells him Tucker’s motivation involves nothing more than saving the ranch. Now he just has to convince his fragile heart.

  1. I totally agree with you on this one. It's a very sweet story. It has that category romance feel to it--like the first Harlequin romances I read as a kid--but it's definitely sexier.
