A million dollar mistake…
Marrying millionaire David Merrick was the biggest mistake of Jenna Caldwell’s life. Two years after their divorce, Jenna is still on the run, relocating to a new place every few months after each terrifying run-in with her ex. No matter where she hides, he always finds her, and each time his temper worsens. Bruised, battered, and bloodied, Jenna takes her lawyer’s advice and relocated to a quiet ranch in Colorado in the hopes that she can finally stop running…
Another chance at finding a safe-haven…
Jack Turner was also running; in the hopes of forgetting about his nightmarish experiences in the army, he’s retreated to his family’s ranch. But Jenna shows up and forces him out of his isolation—and right into her arms. All he wants to do is pull her close and protect her from the world—and especially from her stalker of an ex. But David Merrick is on the hunt for Jenna and he won’t stop until she’s dead.
…And a romance worth the risk
Despite the looming danger posed by Jenna’s ex, Jack and Jenna find themselves inexorably drawn to each other, and just being with one another is healing them—both externally and emotionally. But can Jenna get past the fear factor of giving herself over to another man?

Jennifer Ryan on What She Loves About

I love cowboys. This Valentine’s Day, wouldn’t you like one to show up at your door, a fistful of wildflowers, and smile all for you?
What is it that makes them so sexy?
The butt-hugging jeans. Let’s all take a moment to picture that. Ah, perfection. The rippling muscles from all that hard work. Another visual delight. The tan skin from working in the hot sun all day. Those rough work worn hands. Oh yeah! The way they wear a cowboy hat down low, so when they look at you it’s from under the brim with a mysterious glint in their eyes. One sweep of his hot gaze over you makes you want to drag him under a tall tree, fall to the cool, shaded grass and kiss him until the cows come home.
Maybe it’s the down-home charm. I love a sexy guy who, under all that rugged strength and grit, is deeply kind. One cocky half grin from him makes your stomach flutter.
My favorite cowboy is Jack Turner. He’s not exactly your flowers and candy kind of guy, but after all he and Jenna have been through, he’s that guy for her.
Since he owns the Stargazer Ranch and Stargazer lilies are Jenna’s favorite, you can bet on Valentine’s Day he’s got a vase filled with them by the bed and Jenna in his arms when he wakes her with a scorching kiss. Oh, he might let her think the flowers and a hot morning romp complete his gift, but he’s got plans to spend the day with her.
A late morning ride together on her favorite horse, Blue, takes them to the isolated lake and a picnic for two. Stretched out on a blanket, the beer and fried chicken lunch enjoyed and packed away, Jack’s staring up at the puffy white clouds. The sun on his face, the woman he loves, safe and sound, beside him; it doesn’t get better than this.
A leisurely ride home with Jenna plastered to his body in front of him in the saddle. Such sweet torture to hold her in his arms while he nuzzles her neck and kisses that sweet spot behind her ear. Anticipating the night to come, Jack’s set the stage at home for her seduction.
Soft music, a candlelight dinner for two in front of a raging fire, champagne and Jenna’s favorite double chocolate raspberry torte from Decadence.
Laughing and enjoying themselves, he surprises her and slides the small black velvet box across the table. Eyes alight with joy, she slips the green amethyst earrings on. They sparkle in the same shade as her beautiful eyes and the matching necklace he gave her months ago. The kiss she plants on him has him leading her upstairs. Waiting for her lying on their bed, he’s ready to love her into the night and complete this perfect Valentine’s Day. Should have known Jenna would turn the tables and give him a gift. She walks into the room wearing nothing but the jewelry he gave her, a seductive smile, and a brand new cowboy hat … all for him. Yep, it doesn’t get better than this.
