Do blondes really have more fun? Not when danger lurks around every corner.
Texas Ranger Ben Rasmussen had his heart broken by a beautiful blonde once, and no way is he interested in repeating the experience. Still, there’s something tough, yet fragile, about a certain young business owner, and yes, dammit, she’s a blonde. And beautiful to boot.
Co-owner of Wheaton’s Mercantile and Bistro, Beth Wheaton has had a thing for Ben Rasmussen since the seventh grade when he protected her from some bullies. She isn’t just any blonde. And she’s nothing like the bimbo who trashed Ben’s marriage. But she is determined to break through his reserve to find their happily ever after.
But when the Houston mob and a deadly drug cartel threaten business owners in the Texas Hill Country, Beth’s business is bound to be one of their targets. Ben finds himself drawn more and more to the beautiful blonde who’s willing to do anything to save her home town. Even if it means risking her life.
