Dusty Hicks is a sexy lawman who has moved from Houston after a messy divorce from his socialite wife who used her family's clout to get sole custody of their only daughter. Filled with rage over the injustice, Dusty won't be happy until he has custody. Brianne Cates is the youngest and only daughter of one of the wealthiest families in Texas. Bri is seen as the sweet and fragile baby sister who needs to be protected. Dusty doesn't have time for a pampered woman who reminds him of his ex-wife. And Bri doesn't want anything to do with a man twice as overbearing and macho as her brothers. But when the proprietress of Miss Hattie's Henhouse, Minnie Ladue, gets involved, the two will be thrown together and forced to look deeper. Bri will discover a kindhearted man who treats her as a woman not a princess. And Dusty will find a strong woman who knows how to handle his temper and soften his rough edges and helps him realize that it isn't about who wins or loses the custody battle as long as his daughter is happy.
