High in the Mazatzal Mountains of Arizona, Cheveyo Johnson has his hands full. At twenty-four, he should have the world by it's tail, but instead, he's the guardian to his eight and ten year old brothers, and a time consuming family business, Johnson's Lodge. With all these responsibilities on his broad shoulders, the one thing he wants more than anything is a woman to love and who won't run away from his life - like his ex. He prays to Mother Earth that one day, she'll bless him with such a woman. Until then, he's on his own, dealing with a business that is almost as draining as his energetic brothers.
Widowed at forty-two, Avon Lewis is at a crossroads in her life. Her husband, the love of her life, has been gone for nearly three years. She's been working for her late husband's family board, awarding small business grants. More than anything she's ready for a change. Then Cheveyo Johnson's application comes across her desk. After researching Johnson Lodge, she realizes it's the perfect place to help make her dream of helping disadvantaged children come true, never dreaming the yummy owner was preparing to rock her world.
Now the only question is: what does a woman do with a hunky Native American who is claiming that she's his mate? Anything he'll let her.
