When Duff discovers an intruder hiding inside his barn, he's stunned by the reappearance of Lily Dumont, the woman who ran out on him years earlier. Bo, his lover, doesn't seem to mind having Lily around the house, even after she admits she's returned to rekindle her relationship with Duff.
Still, complications arise when a night of unexpected shared pleasure means something different to each of three of them.

Lily ran away from Duff and a love that would linger for years, no matter how much she tried to forget it. Now, with two hot men in the mix, Lily is reluctant to pull up stakes for the first time in her life. And the men keep coming up with reasons to get her to stay.

What happens when a wayward woman commands the heart of two men sworn to each other? They ride raw. Stephanie Ganon has created a story with real to life characters who love hard, live by their own code, and find the love behind the heartache.

When Lily Dumont stumbled into his barn, bleeding and homeless, Duff didn't have the heart to throw out the one woman who'd nearly broken him years before. But his new partner Bo may not understand his need to protect the woman sleeping in the guest room. Duff, a retired cop turned rancher, fell for his new lover in a hard way and overcame his identity crisis to make a good life with him. But Lily was his first love--the woman who left him. Now, the men will have to teach her to rise above her self-loathing and fight the delicate balance of their own lust and love.

I enjoyed the characters in this story, even though Lily was hard to love. But I liked her because she wasn't your typical heroine. Mature and a little rough around the edges, she kept the plot moving and the relationships on the edge. Duff and Bo were hot and beautiful. They have a love that shouldn't be tested, but any time jealousy and self doubt get thrown in the mix, sparks will fly and passions will soar. Ms Ganon was a master with the emotions in this capacity.

I'll try not to give anything away, but at one point in the story, I wanted to strangle Lily, and just when I wanted to hate her...seriously, hate her...Ms Ganon threw in one line that brought tears to my eyes. I instantly realized that this was the moment I had been waiting for. She redeemed Lily for me in that one line. I'm not usually an emotional reader, but I'll admit a tear or two slipped free.

Well done, and a fast read, I'd recommend this story to anyone looking for a real moment.
