The prettiest rancher he'd ever seen. In her wildest dreams, Tessa Parker never expected to inherit a ranch. But as soon as she sets foot on the Bar X, the orphaned Tessa finally feels at home. And that brusque deputy sherriff who greets her? There's something about him, too, that makes the rootless Tessa want to stake a claim. Law and order make Joseph Hollister's world go round. So when a Tessa from Nevada says she's the rightful heir to his old friend's ranch, it turns his universe upside down. Not to mention every fiber of his being, which thrums each time she's near. But Joseph won't get close to a woman who's only passing through. Even though Tessa might be the only one who can repair his heart...
