Valerie Trimarco is very pregnant, very lost, and very stuck. Her car is jammed in a snowy Wyoming ditch, with contractions coming faster and harder when a white knight in a cowboy hat shows up. Ranch foreman Jack Ralston’s job is to handle anything that needs handling with cool, quiet competence, including a baby who’s decided it’s time to come into the world.
A few years later, Valerie returns to Knighton, Wyoming. Now a successful mommy blogger, she wants to thank the man who rescued her and delivered her baby. Okay, maybe she’s wondered about him a time or two over the years. How could she not? So she conspires with his employers to spring a surprise party on him for a proper thank-you.
Yes, Jack can handle anything. Except this open, energetic, talkative woman and her short-stuff kid who gets under his guard. Because they demand the one thing from him that he can’t handle – love.
