Boulder, Colorado and Cheyenne, Wyoming – Present Day
Single mother Hannah Armstrong leads a fairly quiet life raising her daughter, Cassie, but one day during a crisis with a leaky pipe, she opens her door to discover a sexy, good-looking attorney on her doorstep. Logan Whittaker not only helps repair her pipe, but he informs her that she's an heiress to five million dollars from the estate of her mysterious (and now deceased) father. While the money would come in handy to the financially struggling Hannah, she doesn't want to accept money that came from a man who chose to ignore her. But Logan convinces her to at least come to Cheyenne and talk to her new found relatives before she makes her final decision. Hannah agrees—but since she'll be staying at Logan's home, is she playing with fire if she also has a fling with him?
Logan can't deny his attraction to Hannah, but to get involved with her would be a mistake since he can't promise her any kind of future. He was once married and has no plans to marry again. Hannah needs someone who could act as a father to her daughter, and Logan isn't that man. Yet, the more he's around her, the harder it is to resist kissing her and carrying her to his bed. Can he keep things on a strictly business level?
Hannah was raised by a single mother herself, and while she didn't expect that she'd become widowed before Cassie was even born, she has somehow managed nicely, though the money Logan waves in front of her could help her out immensely. Logan is pretty convincing—and good on the eye?but getting involved with him would lead to all kinds of problems, with the main one being how it could affect Cassie. After leaving Cassie behind with neighbors for a few days, Hannah heads to Cheyenne for a visit, well aware that it may involve ending up in bed with Logan. She will use the trip as a chance to learn the truth behind what happened between her parents and why the paternity was kept a secret. And to get closer to Logan….
