Matt Caldwell must be the hardest-hearted man in the Lone Star State. The last thing he wants to do is open up to a woman—let alone trust her! —and risk getting hurt. So he's sworn off spending any time with a member of the fairer sex…until his beautiful new assistant walks through the office door. What's a mogul to do? On the run from her past, Leslie Murray is in need of a protector, stat. And her new boss might just be the one who can guard her present—and protect her future. But when Leslie suddenly finds herself in Matt's strong arms, she wonders if she could be the one to knock down the bachelor's protective walls and finally bring love to this long, tall Texan.

However, mysterious Leslie Murry was about to change all that. For the cynical Texas tycoon's spirited new employee roused his temper like no one ever had before. And despite his fierce denials, her soft vulnerability also brought out his every protective instinct. After sampling her soul-searing kisses, Matt was sorely tempted to possess the enticing innocent who clearly ached for a man's tender touch. Still, this Long, Tall Texan wasn't about to let down HIS guard until he sweet-talked Leslie into surrendering HER heart!
