Devastated by the discovery of revered mentor/longtime employer U.S. Senator Morgan Cox's infidelity and public display of poor judgment, Garrett McKettrick heads home to the Silver Spur Ranch to regroup. But instead of leisurely examining his options, he must deal with cattle rustlers, an all-too-attractive houseguest and her precocious son, and elder brother Tate's ultimatum to either help run the ranch or sell it. High-school teacher Julie Remington, four-year-old Calvin, and their three-legged dog, Harry, are temporarily occupying the main houseguest suite while their rented home is being fumigated. Although Julie and Garrett have no history to overcome like her sisters and his brothers, her own insecurities seem likely to prevent her from reaching out to grab happiness, be it ever so fleeting. Miller's fast-moving, emotional contemporary romance continues the McKettricks series' plotlines, with more installments to come. --Lynne Welch
