Cole's Hill, Texas – Present Day

Wealthy rancher Diego Velasquez isn't too happy that he agreed to be one of the bachelors auctioned off for charity. He is, however, familiar with the woman who won him, Pippa Hamilton-Hoff, as she is the nanny for a family friend. Diego has to admit that Pippa intrigues him, but he wasn't expecting to be wowed by her. Right after the auction is over, they head out on their “date” and are soon in bed making love. One night isn't enough for either of them, but Pippa then informs Diego that she isn't going to be around much longer.

Pippa has been hiding out in Cole's Hill. Turns out that she has been waiting until she turns twenty-five and can claim her massive inheritance. Five years ago, her father was pressuring her to marry a man he chose and she decided to run away until she could get her inheritance and rightly claim herself as head of the family company. Well, she is about to turn that age and she plans to resurface and return to England. Why not a little dalliance with a man she's been attracted to before she leaves? As Pippa and Diego cram a lot of sex into the few days they have left, feelings begin to grow between them. Will Diego be able to let her walk away?

Readers who have read Katherine Garbera's  The Wild Caruthers Bachelors  will be familiar with Diego and Pippa, and now they have their own tale as the first book of the  Cole's Hill Bachelors  series. Diego is a confirmed bachelor who has dedicated his life to running the family ranch. Pippa came to Cole's Hill to take care of a child and hide out incognito while she awaited her twenty-fifth birthday. Running in the same social circles, they were bound to run into each other, but it isn't until the night of the bachelor auction that they really get to know one another. The sex is sizzling hot between them, and they can't get enough of each other.

Diego and Pippa feel like they're walking on eggshells with their feelings for each other because they both realize that it's time for her to get on with her life—her real one. He thought that after making love to her so many times that he would get her out of his system, but as their time to part grows closer…it becomes harder to say goodbye. What will happen in RANCHER UNTAMED when it's time for Pippa to leave?

With plenty of steamy hot sex scenes, RANCHER UNTAMED is a sensuous tale of a couple finding love but knowing their time together is short. It's a breathless, intense romance that will have readers hoping that Diego and Pippa can find a way to get their happily-ever-after. Don't miss RANCHER UNTAMED.
