A man can't change his past. Yet there Smoke was, forced to deal with the deaths of his estranged parents in the wake of a deadly Texas twister. He no longer belongs at their ranch, the Lost Chaparral; he's not sure he ever did. Face to face with regret for words unspoken, he plans to sell the ranch and move on. It's a solid exit strategy: Get in and get out before the Devil knows you're there.
It would've worked until that heard of Texas Longhorns showed up.
Jessie West... Super model. New York's flavor of the month.
She's only back in Texas to bury her brother Ethan and dispose of the family ranch before the press catches wind she's not at the swimsuit shoot in Cannes, France, where she should be. The only obstacle to her devious get-out-of-town-quick plan is that damned cowboy who lives down the road. The one who started a fire in her belly when she was just a kid in pigtails.
