Rancher Chase Donavan, faced with the imminent loss of his family's land, risks a return to Chuckwagon racing at the Stampede's famous Rangeland Derby, a nightly competition that nearly killed him and cost him his best friend and the girl he intended to marry.
But he has to win to get the money so hedges his bet by secretly stepping into a world where all his rough tough upbringing won't do him a damn bit of good - that of a male model. Could he be more humiliated?
Turns out he can when Jenna Cordell, the girl he booted out of his life, but never out of his heart, ends up being his photographer. Worse, she isn't the shy girl he remembers. This Jenna has grown into an irresistible bundle of charm and never-ending curves - curves he can't seem to keep his mind off getting his hands on.
After his callous rejection on the eve of their wedding, Jenna left the cowboy and her home behind, fleeing to Vancouver in pursuit of her art and a fresh start, only to come full circle at this year's Western Art Show, ending up face to face with the past and the sexy jerk that still makes her toes curl in her boots just by looking at her.
The re-kindling sparks between them may rival the Stampede's Centennial fireworks display, but can she afford to open her heart again with his life on the line every race? And can Chase trust this new Jenna won't reveal his secret as pay back for stomping all over her heart four years ago, turning him into the laughing stock of the rodeo world?

Living in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains and having grown up with her own link to mythology through a family legend, Kymber loves nothing better than taking her imagination out for a spin often asking, among other things, what if the myths and legends we grew up on were real.
