(Texas Trouble, #10)
Leigh Ann Baker, former Miss Texas, knows she has more value than being a beauty queen or the trophy wife of one of the rich old men her mother has been trying to marry her off to. She just needs to figure out what that is. She leaves Dallas and heads to Amarillo to ask her independent sister for advice. Five weeks and five jobs later, Leigh Ann realizes she doesn't have a problem getting jobs, but she just doesn't have the skills to keep them.
Leigh Ann is almost ready to head back to Dallas with her tail between her legs, but her sister recommends her for a job with a local vet. The only problem is, as much as she loves animals, they hate her. Every time she is around them something goes wrong. Leigh Ann is hesitant to take the job, but desperate, so she signs on.
From the first day on the job, handsome, but emotionally injured, single father, Dr. Wes Jepson lets her know in no uncertain terms he doesn't think it's going to work out. Leigh Ann is determined to prove to him that it will. But after meeting his adorable son, keeping her job isn't her only concern. Her focus turns to proving to the jaded vet that he can trust himself to love again, and she is just the woman for that job.
Wes Jepson is done with beautiful man magnets. His ex-wife had shown him exactly what marrying a woman like that would do for him. Wes just didn't have the energy for a woman like that any more. After his wife left him, Wes decided the next woman he got involved with would be in his league. Normal. Hell, she could look like ten miles of bad road as long as she respected him, and the vows they took. When Wes said forever, he meant it, and he wanted a woman who did too.
Overwhelmed with trying to maintain his practice, his finances and raising his son alone, when his friend suggests he hire her sister, Wes is fully on board with it. But from the moment he meets Leigh Ann Baker, he knows he's in trouble. Even in blue jeans and no makeup, she is beautiful. Exactly the type of woman he wants to avoid. He has to hire her though, because he owed Roxanne a lot. Then his friend ups the ante by asking him to let Leigh Ann live with him until she finds her own place.
With every day that Leigh Ann Baker occupies his life and his home, she occupies his thoughts more. He can't stop thinking about her sweet honeysuckle scent and soft southern manners. Even though she makes as much of a mess of his office as she does of his formerly peaceful life, he can't make himself fire her.
Wes knows keeping the former beauty queen around will mean royal trouble for him, but soon he wants as much of it as she can dish out.
