Aspiring romance novelist Trish Meadows still can’t believe her ex ditched her “I finished a book!” celebration for a round of golf. Ready to put her energy into her writing and eager to prove him wrong, Trish jumps at the chance to spend a week at an exclusive romance writer’s retreat on a ranch in Starlight, Wyoming. What could be more inspiring than quiet, starry nights, and cowboys?
Wade Holbrook has sworn off ever falling in love. He’s witnessed too much pain and isn’t willing to subject himself to the same fate. But when his grandma decides to host a retreat on their ranch, she asks Wade to be a personal chaperone for one of the romance writers. It’s the first time his grandma has been excited since they lost Grandpa, so Wade can’t crush her spirit by declining. Too bad nobody warned him about Trish’s fiery spirit.
With a gaggle of new writer friends turned matchmakers and a retreat itinerary under constant revision, Trish and Wade find themselves spending a lot of time together. Soon they realize that neither is quite what the other expected. But will a week spent on a romantic retreat with a cowboy lead to Trish’s happily ever after? Or will Wade’s lifetime of grief keep their story unfinished?
