Hard workin', hard lovin' cowboys. Welcome to Shadow Maverick Ranch.
White Collar Cowboy
Gavin Mathis is ready to settle down. He's quit his job and come home to Shadow Maverick Ranch to do just that. Too bad his decision caused his beautiful former colleague to lose her job.
Lauren Delgado is a no-nonsense businesswoman. She's had a crush on Gavin for years, but has a strict "hands-off" policy with the men she works with. When her life takes an unexpected turn, there's nothing to stop her from accepting his invitation to Galveston Island, where the policy is definitely hands-on.
Paxton Mathis is committed to bachelorhood. One failed marriage was more than enough to remind him of the dangers of getting too close. He has his work on the ranch; he has his family. He has everything he needs.
Event planner Reese Jameson accepted the job at Shadow Maverick Ranch for one reason: to face her biggest regret. Paxton Mathis was her first love, her first everything. And ten years ago, after a night of unbridled passion, it all came crashing down.
The moment they see each other again, it's clear the years haven't doused the heat between them. On the contrary, their flames burn hotter than ever. Despite Paxton's attempts to keep things casual, old feelings emerge alongside a fierce hunger to keep Reese in his life forever. Reese willingly accepts Paxton's need to keep things casual, but she's worried her heart won't get the message.
When Paxton is forced to face his fears, will history repeat itself, or will he take a chance on a whole new future?
Unlike his brothers, Clayton Mathis isn't looking for the woman of his dreams. He works hard, plays harder, and enjoys every minute of it. And with his family preparing to expand Shadow Maverick Ranch, settling down is the last thing on his mind--until a sexy blonde makes him an offer he can't refuse.
Of all the men in the bar, Ainsley Russell has to go and proposition the one man who will cause her nothing but trouble. The Mathis family has been persistent in their bid to buy her property. Inheriting her uncle's ranch has given her the first home she's ever known ... along with a mountain of debt that threatens to take it all away.
After learning Clay's identity, Ainsley can't run fast enough. Or far enough ... since the gorgeous cowboy shows up on her doorstep the next morning, looking to pick up where they left off the night before...
