Jackson Ashford seems to have it all. Gorgeous looks, fulfilling job, loving relationship with his family . . . and he looks amazing in a cowboy hat. He may be a bit of a grump at times, but that doesn’t deter the women of Blue Falls from vying for his attention. So when Ruby Ellison arrives at his doorstep and hates Jackson on sight, he’s confused, to say the least.

Ruby Ellison never intended to come to the tiny town of Blue Falls, Idaho, but when her best friend’s search for her birth father takes her there, Ruby follows. She comes because she’d never let Madi down, but she stays because she quickly comes to love the small town. It’s the best place she’s ever lived . . . with one exception. Jackson Ashford. But Ruby figures she’ll just avoid him. Blue Falls is a small town but surely it’s big enough for two people to keep their distance.

But when Jackson and Ruby are both asked to coach an eight-year-old girls’ basketball team, Ruby realizes there will be no avoiding the man. She’ll just have to hate him up close rather than from afar. But as Ruby gets to know him she realizes that maybe the man she thought she knew isn’t really who Jackson is at all.

Join Ruby and Jackson as they fight and flirt their way to a happily ever after.


He wasn’t used to seeing happily ever afters play out. Sure, his mom and dad had had the kind of marriage people wrote songs and poetry about but even then, his dad had died too young, leaving their mother a beautiful young widow. And then Madison had shown up, almost destroying his dad’s legacy. Yeah, life was usually more of a mess than the beauty he’d witnessed that night.

              Watching Logan hold onto the little girl who would surely soon be Jackson’s niece, Jackson found himself brimming with an emotion he’d hidden away for a long time, at least since his father’s death. Hope.

              And he wasn’t sure how he felt about hope’s reappearance.

              Now that Logan was settling down, did it mean Jackson should consider doing the same? It wasn’t that he was against marriage—he’d thought about dating just one woman a few times, but those relationships had never worked out and it was always easier to go back to his old surface-level ways of just dating around. That’s what he called it. Holland called it womanizing.

            But it wasn’t that Jackson used the women. They all knew what Jackson was like.
