A Hero’s Heart by Tessa Layne
A broken soldier looking for a second chance… Reeling from his best friend’s suicide, former Army Ranger Sterling Walker comes home to Prairie to be foreman at the brand new Resolution Ranch. His focus should be on putting his life back together—not on the high school frenemy he used to love to hate. But the gorgeous and glaring Emma Sinclaire is just as sassy and smart as he remembers—and Sterling can’t resist a challenge. An old flame with a chip on her shoulder… Sterling is the last person Emma wants to see when she returns to Prairie. Once upon a time, she might have crushed on the town golden boy, but she can’t forget the night her nemesis took things too far. And while Sterling is as handsome and cocky as ever, she’s not falling for his charms a second time. Their old rivalry rears its ugly head when Emma & Sterling are forced to team up on a fundraiser for the ranch. Only this time, hot kisses and even hotter nights make things much, much more complicated. Can Emma let go of the past to see Sterling as something other than the shallow teen who left Prairie years ago? And can the broken veteran move beyond the loss of his comrade to embrace a second chance at love?
