Navy SEAL Brian Lake is out of luck. Going rogue on his last mission landed him on a fast track out of the Navyâ€”years too soon to have saved up enough money to buy the ranch heâ€™s always wanted. Without a careerâ€”or the cash to start overâ€”Brianâ€™s options are few, until Army general Augustus Reed steps in with an intriguing new missionâ€”a permanent one.
Ignored by her absentee father, duped by thief he appointed to oversee her familyâ€™s ranch, Cass Reed is done with men for good. From now on sheâ€™s determined to run Two Willows herself, so when her father sends a Navy SEAL to fix up her house, she vows to run him off her land as soon as possible. But Brianâ€™s just as determined to stay, and heâ€™s in a far different league than the men sheâ€™s met before.
Brianâ€™s ready to do anything that will earn him a share of a prosperous ranchâ€”even take a chance on marrying the Generalâ€™s daughter. And he soon realizes it wonâ€™t be a hardship to marry Cass. Sheâ€™s everything heâ€™s ever dreamed of in a womanâ€”and Two Willows is everything he wanted in a ranch.
But heâ€™s not the only one who wants Two Willowsâ€”and Cass.
Will falling in love be the most dangerous mission of all?
