Noah Matthews has two loves in his life: ranching and Tess Montgomery.
But after years of pining in secret, Tess only thinks of him as a friend. Or worse, a brother. And when he finally tries to tell her how he feels, she shoots him down before he ever gets the chance.
Fleeing to the east coast to lick his wounds, Noah is determined to smother his feelings for Tess once and for all. So when he meets a dark-haired beauty, who is Tess’s complete opposite, he has hope he might finally succeed.
After a whirlwind romance, he brings his new girlfriend back to Cedar Falls to meet his family and friends.
Only, Tess isn’t too keen on the new visitor.
Soon, she finds herself rooting for them to fail. But her reasons may not be so altruistic, because suddenly, her feelings for Noah begin to change.
After all these years, is Tess Montgomery ready to admit she’s in love?
