Calvin Dixon grew up tough. After spending much of his adolescence on the streets, he vows to turn his life around, and enrolls in the police academy. Despite high marks, the top cops in town remember Cal’s past, and there’s no place for him on the force.
In North Dakota, he gets a second chance. He’s weeks away from earning his badge when he catches a beautiful, desperate young woman breaking into the abandoned house next to the bunkhouse where he lives – and helps her escape.
Roan Brackens is searching for treasure hidden in the old house that was once her home: without a windfall, she’ll lose the one thing she loves. As Cal tries to help, risking the job he moved across the country for, their growing attraction threatens to doom both their dreams for the future.
THE BOOMTOWN BOYS SERIES
When the recession strikes Red Fork, Arkansas, leaving five friends desperate for a new start, they head for Conway, North Dakota to make their fortunes in the oil boom. Matthew, Calvin, Chase, Jimmy, and Zane are no strangers to hard work, but life on an oil rig means long shifts, difficult conditions and constant danger, and total commitment to bringing the black gold up from deep below the earth’s surface.
It takes a special kind of woman to thrive in an oil town. The women who love the Boomtown Boys are as beautiful as the wildflowers dotting the gently rolling plains, as tough as the rocky Dakota Badlands, and passionate enough to keep their men warm through the long northern winters.
