At long last Captain Calhoun reveals the true story behind the greatest tragedy of his life.
Lindsay Miller and Henry Hammond aren't looking for love, but a pact to have a little fun together may turn into something a lot bigger… and last a lot longer than her vacation.

A casual fling with a willing cowboy might be just what she needs, and Henry fits that description. Devastated after learning that his son isn’t his, Henry is in no mood to entertain ideas about starting a new relationship, but when Lindsay boldly introduces herself, he’s intrigued.

A mutual agreement for a one-night stand turns into a week-long adventure, and even after Lindsay returns home to Washington, Henry can’t stop thinking about her. This could be the real deal, but how can he prove that she and her son are more than a rebound family for him when they’re seven hundred miles away?
