Ronnie Hilt is the ideal business woman and golden child—successful, dedicated, and an absolute perfectionist. Joe Aarons can ruffle her cool like no one can, but due to a heartache looming in her past Ronnie is looking for stability not a tall, virile, dangerous sheriff.
Officer Joe Aarons has been after Ronnie since the day they met. He may come off as the carefree, smirky, risk-taker that Ronnie thinks he is, but deep down he’s looking for the permanence and family he’s never truly had. While there are many other women in town who wouldn’t be opposed to settling down with the town’s hot cop, he can’t ignore the chemistry sparking with Ronnie.
A drunken wild night allows Ronnie to let her hair down and with it her walls and inhibitions. In the morning Joe is hoping for more, while Ronnie is trying to pretend it never happened. It’s just her luck that one home pregnancy test several weeks later proves that she can’t. With a baby on the way, Ronnie tells Joe she wants to marry him for the sake of appearances. Joe’s left trying to decide how far Ronnie will go to keep up her good girl reputation, and to what lengths he’ll go to have her and the family he’s always wanted.
