Rafael, the most buff billionaire bachelor in California’s wine country, bears the nickname “Ogre.” He lives alone in a castle on the cliff. He’s shut down, and denies his aching desires. Until he’s forced to find a bride.
Fiery Bess owns a popular small town bakery, but she’s in the red. And she’s good at keeping men at bay. One divorce down, no more to go. When the mysterious, muscular rancher makes a rare trip to town, she can’t resist taking a long, close look at the big, scary man..
With no courtship skills and a desperate deadline to take a bride or lose everything, Rafael comes on strong. Not the best move with a tough woman who swore off men. Still, he’s got a big lasso and charm.
