Melanie Hanna has finally worked up the courage to travel to New York and tell an old flame that he’s the father of her young son. She’s done hiding and apologizing for her one impulsive night. When her best friend asks her brother to watch over Melanie, her emotional trip takes an unexpected and sizzling detour.
Charles Dery is at the top of his game, but all he can think about is bedding the woman he was asked to protect. When she’s almost killed, he takes what he’d been denying himself and discovers he’ll do anything to keep her—even break his own rules.
When it comes to love, two wrongs may just finally make a right.
This is the second book in the Lone Star Burn series. I really enjoyed the first book in the series, but I enjoyed this one so much better. The story is very well done, and while the characters still got their HEA, the story is realistic and has unexpected twists that are more realistic than many books in this genre. I really enjoyed getting to know Melanie and Charles better, and recommend this to anyone who loves contemporary romance, even if cowboy’s aren’t your thing.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York--then came full circle and moved back to Rhode Island. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.
She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm, riding her horses, or connecting with her readers online.
