Summer Fitzgerald is a person of interest in the robbery and murder of her former boss. With no resources she is forced to take a job as a nanny. To her surprise the job consists of watching four, almost full grown, cowboys and helping their handsome, older brother Holden O’Leary.

Veterinarian Holden O’Leary moves his family to a Montana ranch for a fresh start. His time is soon consumed rescuing neglected horses and he needs help with his bothers.  Despite wishing otherwise, he soon finds that Summer holds his heart.

Will scandals and old secrets keep them from trusting each other or will Summer finally get her desire?

Holden opened the door and made a bee line for her. He took her hand in his strong one and led her outside. “We have a tour I believe?”

Summer laughed. “Why, yes. I haven’t seen much of your ranch.”

Holden helped her into the truck and got in on his side. “It could take days to see it all properly.” He gave her a wicked sidelong glance.

Summer lightly punched his shoulder. “We aren’t really going to tour the ranch are we?”

His mouth opened in mock outrage. “I don’t know what you mean.”

“I hope you brought protection.”

Holden laughed deeply. “Of course I did.”

“Come to think of it you had some with you when you came to my room. Do you keep them in your wallet or something?”

Holden laughed even harder. “No, only when I’m around you.”

His answer brightened her day. “So, where are we going first?”

“I figured you’d want to see my cattle.”

“Cattle it is. Hurry, please.”

“Anxious for some cowboy loving?”

Summer smiled. “You know I am!”

Holden turned off the road and headed toward a group of trees. “The hell with the cattle,” he said, parking the truck. “I need to kiss you.”
