While on the run from Jerome Pearson, her dangerous boyfriend, Carla Burchfield falls in love with hunky twin cowboys, Matt and Dyson Shearer. When Pearson turns up in town Carla’s first instinct is to flee. Reluctantly leaving the guys, she makes her escape, only to be met with an accident en route. Local rancher, Aiden Fielding finds her and takes her back to his palatial spread, where he calls the doctor and the sheriff’s office. To Carla’s horror she discovers that the local Deputy Sheriff is, in fact, Dyson Shearer. Feeling upset and betrayed she flees the ranch, taking with her a broken heart and a head full of secrets the guys would never believe. When Pearson catches up with her, so does her past. Can she ever convince her cowboys that her reasons for hiding the stolen cash from a shop-raid are actually honourable? And can they persuade her to stay with them even though the affluent Aiden Fielding appears to have so much more to offer her? She can hide her secrets…but she can’t hide her heart.
Maggie Welch lives in a crummy apartment while working in a run-down café in Bracken Ridge, Cavern County. Her days have recently been brightened by the handsome cowboy who has started to frequent her workplace. Unfortunately, Aiden Fielding, the wealthy rancher, can’t be anything more than a friend, though, as her demise in social standing has robbed her of the confidence and money she once had.
Aiden Fielding is smitten with Maggie and enjoys her company at the café, which has recently become his regular haunt. When he finally plucks up the courage to ask her out, they have a wonderful evening, and he is impressed that, despite her current job, she is clearly much more socially adept than he had imagined. He suspects there is more to Maggie Welch than meets the eye. A crass remark, however, seems to ruin their chances of a future together and he ends up being thrown out of her apartment. A later attempt to help Maggie ends in disaster when she is humiliated in front of his family and dinner-party guests.
Just when things had seemed to be looking up for Maggie, it has all come crashing down again. She realizes that Aiden doesn’t see her in the way she had hoped, and when she finds him entertaining her ex-fiancé, Robert Rossington, she feels that he is certainly not the gentleman she had perceived.
She knows that Rossington is a cheat and thief – the trouble is that’s only the half of it…
