Add to Goodreads:
Head down south to Winchester Wild Ranch where the nights are steamy, the cowboys are smokin’, and it’s always a wild ride.
A heartfelt, second chance, small-town romance from USA Today bestselling author Carmen Jenner.
Twelve years ago, Lemon Winchester traded her cowgirl boots for Monolos and fled Red River Canyon for New York without so much as a glance in her rearview.
When tragedy strikes, Lemon returns to Winchester Wild Ranch, back to the little town she left so many years ago, back to the house that holds too many memories, and back to her overbearing, madcap family.
But not everyone is happy to see her.
Colton Hayes has worked Winchester land since he was old enough to ride a horse. For as long as he can remember, his future only ever involved one person—Lemon Winchester—his best friend’s little sister. But it’s hard to marry the girl next door when she runs off in the middle of the night without so much as a goodbye.
She’s back and he’s bitter.
They once shared a love capable of scalding even the most brutal Texas summer, but the ranch is no longer big enough for them both, especially when those old feelings begin to resurface.
Lemon is every bit as infuriating as the day he fell in love with her, but Colt knows better than anyone that you can’t rope in Winchester wild. That woman will be the death of him … assuming her brothers don’t kill him first.

It’s been over a decade since Lemon left her family ranch and the man she loved to pursue her dreams in NY. She is now an artist who owns her own gallery and is living the life she always dreamed off until two devastating blows in her personal life sends her back home.
Colton not only works on the family ranch but he is also her brother’s best friend and has loved Lemon since they were teenagers even if she didn’t love him enough to stay. He isn’t about to just forgive and forget so he will go about his business like she isn’t even there however that is turning out to be a battle he isn’t winning.
I really enjoyed these two characters as Lemon’s feisty and fiery personal is a perfect match for the sweet and swoony man that Colton is. There was no denying the chemistry and love between them but for them to have a future together they must first heal from the past.
