Returning home to Spring Hill, Texas after a stint in the Air Force leaves him wounded, Riley McCord is nursed back to health by his childhood friend Claire Davidson, who betrayed him years ago, and agrees to a no-strings fling with this woman he has never been able to forget—and the only person who really understands him.
The McCord Brothers are the most eligible bachelors in Spring Hill, Texas. But these cowboys are about to get wrangled by the love of some very special women–the kind who can melt hearts and lay it all on the line.
Air force Captain Riley McCord has come home on medical leave to find one heck of a welcome reception. Every unattached woman in Spring Hill, Texas, wants to nurse him back to health. That includes his childhood friend Claire Davidson–the only person who understands how damaged he really feels. In high school, she chose his best friend over him. According to Riley’s rules, that should make her off-limits forever. But when Claire suggests a no-strings fling, he can’t refuse.
Claire always wanted Riley–but she also craved the safety and stability he couldn’t offer. So she chose another path, only to end up crazier about him than ever. She’s even convinced herself that this time she won’t be devastated when he leaves. Yet once Riley realizes the depth of Claire’s feelings–and his own–he’ll have to make the ultimate choice: return to the job he loves or stay home for the woman who’s always lived in his heart.
