His chivalry was strangling her. He thought he was helping her, and in truth he was. She was in desperate straits. But as honorable as he was, he was also breaking her heart.
Her attraction was drowning him. When World Champion rodeo cowboy Rossen Rockland and his friends rescue a young runaway who has been abused by her foster father and take her home to his parents ranch, he expects her to turn out to be a pain in the neck. And sometimes she is.
It doesn t take him long to figure out that she has way more than her allotment of trouble and far more than her share of gifts. Lovely, talented, and ravingly brilliant, Kit Star is too young, unbelievable humble, and oh so loveable. Knowing that she needs his protection and time to grow into her potential, Rossen also figures out that what she really is, is a pain in the heart.
