Cash, Jace, and Sawyer: Three cousins sharing an inheritance of five hundred acres of prime California ranch landโ€”and a whole lot of surprises . . .

Cash Dalton is no rancher. Heโ€™s an FBI agentโ€”or at least he was, until he left a haunting case behind him and a load of guilt in front of him. Now it turns out heโ€™s also a fatherโ€”to a twelve-year-old girl he didnโ€™t know he had. Clearly, itโ€™s no time for a new romance, especially not with Aubrey McAlister, whoโ€™s renting the cottage on Dry Creek Ranch. She doesnโ€™t even seem to like him. Still, thereโ€™s nothing wrong with looking . . .

After calling off her wedding, Aubrey is trying to focus on her interior design career and avoid the fact that sheโ€™s the center of small-town gossip. Clearly, itโ€™s no time for a new romance, especially not with brooding Cash. Though she does find him sexy as hell. And he has softened since his daughter arrivedโ€”enough for Aubrey to help decorate her roomโ€”and even try to get Cash to open up about the chip on his shoulder. Once he does, both their hearts might just followโ€”but will their futures sync up as well? . . .

Aubrey got the impression they were no longer talking about painting. โ€œYou must be a renegade, Cash Dalton.โ€
He held her gaze, his eyes so blue, they reminded her of Mill Lake in summertime. โ€œMaybe, how โ€™bout you?โ€ And then his eyes slid over her in a way that wasnโ€™t altogether respectable.
โ€œMe? Uhโ€ฆIโ€™m pretty conventional.โ€
โ€œThereโ€™s nothing about you a man would call conventional.โ€ He stepped in front of her and flicked a piece of tape off her shirt.
She lifted her face to his, hoping she wasnโ€™t misreading what was going on here. โ€œShould I take that as a compliment?โ€ Are you making a move on me?
โ€œDamn straight itโ€™s a compliment.โ€ His lips twitched and he tilted his head down close enough that she felt his warm breath on her cheeks. โ€œYou know, I nearly kissed you the other day? How weird would it be if I kissed you now?โ€
She chewed her bottom lip. โ€œProbably pretty weird.โ€ But she didnโ€™t move away.
His lips hovered barely an inch from her mouth. โ€œShould we try it? Whatโ€™s the worst that can happen?โ€ 
It was just a kiss, she argued with herself, trying to dismiss all the reasons it was insane, starting with the fact that sheโ€™d just broken her engagement to another man. Her head told her to back away, but her mouth said, โ€œI donโ€™t see how it could hurt.โ€
And then, just like that, he covered her mouth with his, tasting her lips until the kiss grew deeperโ€ฆ
