Trey Walker thought he was cursed when it came to women, but after a disaster destroyed nearly everything veterinarian Maddie Brooks owned, Trey offered the petite redhead shelter at 2 Hope Ranch. Maddie was smart, sexy and good with animals... impossible to resist, yet he vowed not to break her heart.
Maddie knew the temporary arrangement she made with Trey was strictly business. For over a year she'd tried to get the handsome rancher to notice her, but the man never seemed interested. Now, she'd be living under his roof and using his barn to treat animals.
