There's more than one way to imprison a man.

Daniel Edmonds spent almost a decade in prison for a crime he didn't commit. After finally having his name cleared, he'd hoped things would get easier, but people still look at him like he's a murderer, and talk about him in hushed voices as he walks past. When he discovers that he really can't go home again, he has to decide what to do to survive.

Adapting to the outside world isn't easy, especially for a man alone.

Fear of temptation to fall back into his old ways scares Daniel into near-seclusion. When given the chance to help his brother Duke and brother-in-law, Frankie, Daniel agrees. His pride takes a hit when he has to let them buy his plane ticket to Montana, but Daniel's learning that family is more important than anything else.

That's what he tells himself, although maybe he's running, just a little, and not just trying to help Duke and Frankie. One thing is for certain—he doesn't mind spending a little time on the Mossy Glenn Ranch.

Hector Gallegos works hard and keeps his head down. He hasn't been interested in more than the occasional hook-up here and there. He's growing tired of that lifestyle, though, after seeing so many happy couples—and one treble—at the Mossy Glenn.

When Dan Edmonds shows up to visit his brother, Duke, Hector can't help but notice the man. Dan's scarred face doesn't dim the attraction that immediately flares between him and Hector.

Lust comes easy, but building something that will last is a challenge.

After being imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, Daniel Edmonds has to decide what he's going to do to survive. Meeting Hector Gallegos and spending time with his brother makes things easier but building something that will last is a challenge in this gripping contemporary romance.

Hector is tired of the occasional hook-up lifestyle and when Daniel visits the Mossy Glenn Ranch, he can't help but notice the man. The reader can't help but get caught up in the story as Daniel and Hector work to overcome the emotional issues of the past and build a lasting relationship. The chemistry between Hector and Daniel is hot enough to burn the pages and the sex scenes are scorching but the relationship is a test of hope, faith, and trust as personal demons plague them both. These strong, compelling characters draw the reader into their story while tugging at the heartstrings and the fast paced, smooth flowing plot captivates readers with suspense, turmoil and romance.

There are several areas of the story that builds tension and adds bits of excitement throughout the story as Daniel's exoneration and release causes him emotional angst. It also has him caught up with the lawyer end of things. There's a bit of suspicious trouble happening at the Mossy Glenn Ranch that could have devastating consequences, and there is also a jealous suitor that causes a bit of friction as well. Well written scenes and details bring all of the events together in a well-rounded and gripping story that pulls readers in and refuses to let go.

This is the first book that I have read in this series and I have to say that I was taken with quite a few of the sexy cowboys and very intrigued with the setting. I am looking forward to visiting the Mossy Glenn Ranch again.

Note: I had no trouble becoming caught up in the story and the characters even though I haven't read the preceding books although they do reference previous events.
