The only thing you can’t rely on this cowboy for is relationship advice. No woman has ever come close to making him want to settle down… until her.
Cordelia Sugar Rose is as sweet as her name. Or at least she used to be. This southern belle is taking back control of her life. Too bad her improper thoughts are clouding her judgement, encouraging her to throw her morals —and panties— out the window. One naughty kiss and she finds herself in a fiery predicament she never saw coming.
With both keeping secrets neither is prepared to share, the passionate air is thick with confusion. But, if two people have sex, can they still be friends? Or does seeing each other naked make for a situation too complicated to categorize?
