 After learning his ex-wife isn’t so ex after all, rebel turned rancher Dan Whitlock is determined to prove he’s a changed man…but Bailey Quinn is just as set on finally ending their marriage.

Bailey looked relieved. “Anyway, like I said, the divorce papers will be ready before long, and then you’ll be going back to Wyoming.”
The words came out before he could stop them. “Maybe not.”
“What do you mean?”
Dan hesitated, but it was too late to back off now. “I may not be going back to Wyoming. I’m considering staying on in Pine Valley, maybe for good.”
What?” Bailey’s mouth dropped open. “But why? Because your brother’s here?”
For a second he considered letting her think that. It wasn’t the whole truth, but it would be so much easier. Smarter, too, probably.
But then he shook his head and looked her in the eye. This might be stupid. It most likely was. But he wasn’t going to start this out with a lie. “No. Because you are.”
