The last thing she needs is a distraction, especially a pretty boy running back who can barely commit to dinner plans, let alone a woman.

While Rhett and Cassie are as opposite as they come, they can’t deny the sparks that fly between them. Will he finally stop running long enough to offer his heart, and can she afford to risk hers? Find out in this sweet Western romance inspired by Bella Andre’s Game for Love.

A little girl sits alone in her treehouse, wondering if she’ll ever be beautiful enough to find love. It’s not just her face that’s ugly though; it’s everything about her. She’s different, and the other kids don’t like her. “I just need to find one person,” she tells herself. “Just one person who can love me, then I won’t be so lonely anymore.”

As she grows up, she finds companionship among books and animals, but still longs for that special connection with another person. Even when she tries to compromise, however, she still can’t find anyone to accept her for who she’s always been inside. Years later, on the eve of her divorce, she makes a pledge never to fall in love again. After all, love doesn’t work when it only goes one way. She creates a fictional boyfriend to love, deeming him enough. Little does she know that the man she has imagined is, in fact, very real—and headed straight into her life to turn things around once and for all.

What unfolds is an epic love story that will melt even the coldest of hearts. I wouldn’t have believed it possible, except it happened to me. This is my story, and every last bit of it is true. And if it happened for me, it can happen for you too.
