After making a serious misjudgment about the man she was about to marry, Cara escaped to the one place she always felt safe–her family’s ranch. She wants to evade the paparazzi and hide her near disastrous mistake from her family, while she tries to figure out what’s next.

In need of peace after a tumultuous year supervising the building of Castle’s first technology store, Aidan Castle escapes to the Double L Ranch. When he enters the den, he’s shocked to find a woman sleeping in a wedding dress. Worse, he recognizes her as the beautiful socialite he kissed at Castle’s costume ball. He’d felt that night was special and when Cara left, he’d lost a little piece of his heart.

Cara has no place to go, and Aidan’s not sure he wants to kick her out. When a winter storm traps them in, their attraction and bond become undeniable. Cara opens up and Aidan can’t resist playing white knight and offering to scrub all details of her secret love life to save grace with her powerful brother. But then, he discovers secrets that make him question everything. Can he trust her?

I just love this series.  Each book has a wonderful story.  With each book we get a new love story, but still get to visit with our favorites from previous books.  This story picks right back up where the last story left off.

Cara Lamon almost made a huge mistake to marry a con artist.  Instead of dealing with the problem she runs.  Runs to the one place she feels safe, Double L Ranch.  What she doesn’t realize is her con artist is not done with her yet.

Aidan has been working hard to open the new technology store for Castle’s department stores.  Instead of renting an apartment, Nico has been letting him stay at his family’s ranch.  The peace and quiet have been soothing, that is until he comes in one night to find Cara, Nico’s sister, on the couch face down crying and drunk.   Aidan hasn’t seen her since she kissed and ran from him, claiming to be engaged.  But when Aidan finds the reason why she is there, he is quick to be her knight in shining armor.  But can he trust her?  Can he save the Castle name from another scandal?

I absolutely love the characters in this series.  Each one has a wonderful personality and are fun and loving individuals.  They are loyal and strong-minded.  They each have a hearts of gold.  And their stories of romance are such sweet ones.

Overall the book is wonderful and sweet.  The perfect mix of romance and humor with some good little twists mixed in.  Halllmark movies in the making, are what these books are.  I hate to see the series come to an end, but all the main characters are wrapped up in this last book.  Interested to see if another book will be released and who it would involve.  I would classify this series as a cozy romance.  So if you are looking for a book with a tad bit action and butterflies in your tummy romance, then this book is for you.
