A one-time bad girl comes home to small-town Oregon in the first in a sexy, heartfelt new series from USA TODAY bestselling author Maisey Yates…

Sadie Miller isn’t expecting any welcome-home parades on her return to Copper Ridge. Least of all from part-time rancher, full-time lawman Eli Garrett. The straight-laced, impossibly hot deputy sheriff glares at her like she’s the same teenage hoodlum who fled town ten years ago. But running from her demons has brought Sadie full circle, ready to make a commitment at last. Not to a man, but to a B and B. On Garrett land. Okay, so her plan has a tiny flaw…
Eli works too hard to let a blonde ball of trouble mess up his town. But keeping an eye on Sadie makes it tough to keep his hands off her. And if she’s so wrong for him, why does being with her feel so right?


“Sure. And anyway, I thought you were supposed to tell me why all my harebrained schemes wouldn’t work.”
“Well, I haven’t come up with a single damn reason what you’re asking for won’t work,” he said, slamming the truck door. “Do you have any idea how annoying that is?”
“I have a fair idea of how annoying that must be for you. It must really suck.”
“It does.”
But somehow, even he didn’t seem unreasonable right now. He seemed…understandable. Here in this vast, wild place, so carefully tamed by the hands of his family, by him and Connor, she could see what a huge job it had been. Two boys who had been essentially alone in the world, with a sister to care for. She could easily see how much grit and strength it would have taken to hold things together. She wondered if that impossible task was what had built the solid man she saw in front of her. The man who was still doing the same thing. Still trying so hard to hold the pieces together.
Dammit. It made her heart all achey, and that was much more disconcerting than being horny.
They didn’t get very far up the road before Eli stopped the truck again. “Right there,” he said, “we’ll move the cows to another pasture and open up the gates.”
She looked over where he was pointing and shaded her eyes as she studied the bright green fields, dotted with glossy black animals, their heads down, the sun casting a ripple of light and shadow over muscle and sleek hair.
Yellow flowers popped like little sunbursts across the grass, standing in sharp contrast to the dark green and fading blue of the mountains beyond.
It took her breath away. It reminded her why this place was home.
Which was so strange, because she couldn’t remember ever really feeling like it was before, but sitting in the truck, looking out at all this, she felt it. Not like something new, but even better and more rare for someone like her, it felt familiar.
“Parking lot doesn’t really do this justice. Will it be okay to…drive on it?”
“Yeah, it’s fine. We cycle the cows through the fields anyway and they’re about done here for now.”
“I can suddenly see why none of you ever left.”
“It’s beautiful,” he said. “Some days I kind of forget to look at it. But the expression on your face just reminded me.”
Something warm shot through her, across her face and down into the pit of her stomach. She swallowed hard, fought against it. It was a good feeling, but weird. Deeper than the kinds of feelings she was used to.
And she wasn’t sure she liked it.
“Anyway, I have to get out and help Connor for a while, so I’ll drive you back.”
“I’m fine walking,” she said, suddenly feeling the need to escape again. To feel a little sunshine on her face and some wind in her hair. “I mean, really, I want to walk.”
He shrugged. “All right. Suit yourself. See you around.”
She climbed out of the truck and tried to ignore the somewhat fuzzy feeling his casual, and not at all hostile, goodbye carved out in the pit of her stomach. Right in the middle of all the warmth.
“Yeah,” she said, “see you.”
She hopped out of the truck and breathed in deep, the air sweet from the flowers and salty from the nearby sea. She looked up and closed her eyes, letting the sunshine wash over her. And even though she wanted to, she didn’t look back at Eli. Not even once.

 USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.

In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.
