Weeks before her wedding, Emily Weber walks away from her planned society shindig and her cheating fiancé--straight to her cousin's New Mexico ranch. Everyone's advice: Emily's got to work it out of her system, and her childhood acquaintance--all six feet of dark good looks--is just the guy to help.
Colin Talbot recognizes someone on the run from their life. Hell, the rootless photojournalist hasn't been on his ranch in years, till now. But he's not about to indulge in a promise of pleasure, not with a potential for disaster. Emily still wants marriage and babies; he can't wait to bolt. So he'll keep his distance before she has him wanting what he can't have: a family and a forever love.
