Milli Torres never thought she would see Beau Luckadeau again after the one hot Louisiana night they spent together. Then, the next thing she knows he's yelling at her about cutting his fence and letting his prize bull out. All Milli can really do is let her temper flow, put him in his place and then go back to her Grandparents ranch to find out how long Beau has owned the ranch next door.
Beau keeps thinking he has seen Milli somewhere before. But just thinks its because she reminds him of his Louisiana angel Amelia. Camillia is what everyone told Beau Milli's name was, but as drunk as he was, Beau has thought this whole time her name was Amelia.
The big problem is this that every time Milli is around Beau or Beau is around Milli they have sparks between them neither really want to feel. The reason this is a big problem for Milli this is because little does Beau know that on the ranch next door is the 14 month old daughter he and Milli conceived on their hot Louisiana night together.
Milli and Beau's relationship in this book is really fun to read. At the beginning they just cannot stand to be around one another. Then slowly they start realizing that there is something between them and they feel it every time they are around each other or when they touch. When they finally do give in it is almost a relief because then you get to see completely different sides to both of them.
If you love a romance that has the couple sparring at the beginning and then gradually finding one another, then this is the book for you. It moves at a pace that keeps you reading and not wanting to put the book down wondering what is going to happen next and how in the world these two people could possibly fall in love.
