Tara Jean Sweet made a deal with 90-year old Lyle Baker to help lure his estranged son Luc and daughter Victoria back to his ranch in Texas.

This author/series is listed amongst my favorite top 5 and occasionally I enjoy re-reading these books.

But when he notices a man he knows for fact is twisted and enjoys abusing his women, he bids on the lovely lady standing on […]
