Recovering from a difficult divorce and having problems with her daughter, Shelby accepts a summer job cooking at a family-run dude ranch. She hopes the animals will be just what her daughter, Lizzie, needs. Little does she know that ranch life will work some healing magic on her, too.
Ever since striking it big on a gemstone claim in the Wyoming mountains, Sam Babcock has known luck is on his side - except when it comes to the people he loves. When he forms a surprising connection with an alluring newcomer staying at his friend Wyatt's ranch, Sam starts to question everything he thought he knew. Needing time and space to heal, former daredevil Danny Traveler is camping out in a valley beyond Mustang Ridge Dude Ranch. She wants to take care of herself for once, and a sexy cowboy might be just the distraction she needs.
With guest season about to start at the ranch, Krista Skye needs to track down a new head wrangler fast. Unfortunately the best man for the job is the last person Krista wants to see - Wyatt Webb, the college sweetheart who left her behind. Wyatt has major reservations about working with Krista as well, but he has his own reasons for wanting to stay in town. Although Krista and Wyatt are all business at first, sparks fly as they work side by side, preparing for an upcoming country fair.
Grateful to her twin for keeping Mustang Ridge in the family, Jenny Skye agrees to return home for a month so that her sister can get away. It's the middle of winter, and only a few year-round staffers, her family, and the animals will be there. But the globetrotting videographer is soon in way over her head at the dude ranch, dealing with reservations, her redecorating-obsessed mother, and the town's hunky new veterinarian.
After putting all her savings - and then some - into purchasing a vintage clothing shop in downtown Three Ridges, Wyoming, Ashley Webb is determined to succeed come hell or high water. Problem is, she's never been good at long-term commitments. And when Ashley again crosses paths with the incredibly sexy cowboy she got cozy with at her brother's wedding, she can't help being distracted.
