Drake throws HC for a loop, but he’s going to teach the aggravating man he is everything HC needs…


HC Wagner has clashed with Drake—the foreman for MGR Ranch— right from their very first meeting. HC enjoys flirting with—and teasing—the stuffy cowboy. It’s just too bad Drake is so damn sexy…and straight. But when Drake becomes exceptionally friendly and rather openly inviting, HC is scared as to what this might mean, sending him on a trail of discovery to find out exactly who the real Drake Finley is.

Meanwhile Drake is fascinated by the conundrum that is HC Wagner—the smart mouthed, tattooed, Harley-riding chef. He enjoys surprising the man who seems so set on aggravating him. One kiss to shut HC up starts the beginnings of one rollercoaster ride he never thought he would find himself on. After Drake has a taste of the stubborn chef, he finds himself with an unquenchable desire to teach him that not only do opposites attract, they can thrive…as long as they work on it together.

“Don’t say things you don’t mean.”

It sounded like a warning and made HC pause and stare at Drake. His expression changed from teasing to the usual unfathomable calm that drove HC crazy.

“What’s wrong with you?” He moved closer and sniffed him. “You don’t smell like alcohol.” He grabbed the sides of Drake’s face and studied his green eyes. “Your eyes don’t seem glazed.” He studied the rest of his face. “There’s something different about you. I don’t like it. Where’s the Drake Finley I’ve come to enjoy loathing?”

“Lying is another bad trait.” Drake placed his hands over HC’s against his face. “We both know that loathe is far from what you feel for me.”

HC’s eyes widened and he jerked away. Drake caught his hands, before moving his grip up to his forearms to keep him in place—HC paused at the firmness. HC knew he could break free, but it would probably take a blow, which he figured Drake would return, to get himself loose. That would make his brothers, dad and Morgan mad and cause a whole lot of issues.

“Let me go,” HC said in a low tone.

He held on to his temper. The way Drake was acting was throwing him off-kilter. HC didn’t like it at all. He was the one who was used to unsettling people. He was damn good at it and enjoyed it too.

“For now.” Drake slid his hands down his arms.

HC went very still, not letting the shiver overcome him as Drake’s calloused fingers made his skin break out in goosebumps. Drake’s smile widened. The arrogance made HC grit his teeth. Drake finally removed his touch and HC breathed out.
