~Haunted Hills Ranch belongs to Quinn. But Sara holds a deed to it.~
Ex-Dallas detective Sara Barrett doesn't exactly believe in ghosts, but she doesn't not believe in them either -- until she has a disturbingly sensual encounter with the long-dead owner of her newly acquired ranch, cowboy Quinn Farrell.
Quinn is a soul unwilling to rest. Now, nearly a century after he was betrayed by those closest to him, he is determined to keep everyone off his land.
Quinn can only materialize in two places: the cave where he was murdered and the bedroom in the old house where he was born. The same bedroom where Sara learns that itís possible not only to make love with a ghost, but also to fall in love with one.
But little do Sara and Quinn suspect that a crooked land developer will use any means, even murder, to get possession of the ranch they both love.
~Super-organized Livvy Swenson reserves the church, then goes husband-hunting for her perfect match. Can her match possibly be a Texas roadhouse bartender who wears Gucci loafers?~
Librarian Livvy Swenson lives by her notebook planner, organizing her life to the nth degree. When she decides her biological clock requires that she now get marrried, Livvy sets about the task with a list of what she requires in a husband.
But she's forgotten one requirement -- what the Ladies' Prayer Circle of Ophelia, Texas, calls "zing." Miss Daisy Hemphill and her friends pray for the right man for Livvy, but their prayers are answered by bartender Tex Braun.
Livvy is attracted to Tex but is positive he can't possibly meet her intellectual requirements.
Multi-millionaire Tex Braun is in hiding incognito as a roadhouse bartender to escape a high society gold-digger who wants to hook him. Tex doesn't realize it, but moving in the social circle of the roadhouse opens his eyes to the kind of woman he really wants to spend his life with -- one exactly like Livvy Swenson. He's making progress convincing Livvy that he can be all she needs in a man when his ex-finacee tracks him down and announces to everyone in the bar -- including Livvy -- that she's pregnant.
Tex is caught in the middle of a mess he had never imagined in his wildest dreams. And caught with him is the woman he loves. Winning Livvy back will be one heck of a lot harder than fixin' drinks behind the bar in his Gucci loafers.
