Maddie Woodward is in a pickle. The last person she expects to see when she returns to the family ranch for one last Christmas is her former lover, Zach Brennan. He’s hotter as he ever was, all male and determined to get her naked. She’s just as determined to show him she’s over him—until she ends up in his bed, enjoying the wildest sex of her life. A night of uncontrolled, erotic sex shows her that Zach is far from out of her life. Now if she can just get him to help her convince her sisters not to sell the ranch—or sell it to the two of them.
Her sisters had both always had big dreams that didn’t include the Flying W. Okay, they could have their plans. But she should be allowed to have hers too. Why she’d let her parents talking her into becoming a teacher she still didn’t know. Sure she loved kids but that wasn’t where her heart was.
“You need a life outside the Flying W,” her mother had said over and over again.
The last two months had proved to her how wrong she’d been. All she’d thought about since the funeral was finding a way to keep the ranch and run it herself. Quitting her job had been a big step but she’d felt freer than she had in ages. She was committed and she wasn’t turning back.
And Zach Brennan, here of all places. God, how she hated him for the way he’d treated her. That swagger, that arrogance. That smooth, natural charm, damn his eyes. What a sucker she’d been to fall for his line. She’d wasted a lot of her life hanging onto a promise that wasn’t even there. Now it was her turn to take charge.
Shoving the clothing in her hand in a drawer, she picked up the phone on her night stand and called Ty Blackwell. From all the calls back and forth before and after the funeral the number was permanently etched in her brain.
“Maddie?” His voice held a welcoming tone. “You’re the first one here, I guess. Neither of the others has called yet.”
“That’s right. I just got in a little while ago.”
“It’s so good to hear your voice. As soon as Liza gets here, why don’t you call and we’ll set up a time to meet and go over all the details of the will. We can try to put through a call to Jenna wherever she happens to be and get her in on this.”
“You can cut out the sweet lawyer talk,” she snapped. “I’m damn angry with you. What the hell is Zach Brennan doing on my property? I want him off.”
There was a long moment of silence and Maddie could picture the look of shock on Ty’s face.
“Maddie. Honey. I’m sure Zach told you he’s planning to buy the Flying W. When Jack Grady got hurt and couldn’t work any more, it just seemed reasonable to have him move on out there and take over.”
“You get him the hell away from here,” she raged. “The ranch is not for sale and I don’t want to see his lying face anywhere in Texas.”
“Maddie!” Now the shock was evident. “I emailed all of you about this. Your folks said if none of you wanted to live here that was okay. You should have your own lives. The ranch should be sold and the profits split three ways.”
“If being the operative word,” she told him. “I don’t want to sell. That’s that.”
