The Outlaw clan has always been tight, so Sunny Outlaw Payton and her sister, Cassidy, assumed the family didn't want anything to do with the "illegitimate" twins. All that changes one day when Sunny is welcomed into the fold…and she's introduced to her cousin's friend Ben McKee, a Texas Ranger who really knows how to turn up the heat! Sunny's not looking for sparks–she left the Austin police force for a quiet life running her family's Chili Witches Cafe. And as a new widow, she's gun-shy about falling for another man with a dangerous job. But Ben, who has his hands full as a Ranger and as a single father to a five-year-old towhead, is sure she's the woman for him. And he's doing his damnedest to convince her that he's the "good guy" her Outlaw heart's been looking for!
