Synopsis (from Barnes and Noble):
World champion rodeo star Austin McKettrick finally got bested by an angry bull. His career over, his love life a mess, the lone maverick has nowhere to go when the hospital releases him. Except back home to Blue River and the Silver Spur ranch. But his overachieving brothers won't allow this cowboy to brood in peace. They've even hired a nurse to speed his recovery. Paige Remington's bossy brand of TLC is driving him crazy. As is her beautiful face, sexy figure and silky black hair.

Paige has lost count of how many times Austin has tried to fire her. She's not going anywhere till he's healed—body and heart.

And by then her place in his life just might become permanent….

I've just got done reading this final book in the McKettricks of Texas series and I LOVED it! Austin is your typical rodeo cowboy....thinks he's 10 feet tall and bulletproof....well it's not very far into the book before that attitude gets cut down to size. He's almost been killed once by a bull but since coming home after this last mishap it seems that the McKettrick "boys" have big ole bulls eyes painted on them.

In comes Paige Remington, a currently unemployed RN, who is living at the Silver Spur while renovations are being done at the home that she grow up in. Then Austin comes home and that right there brings their past relationship to the surface. And let's just say that their last relationship did NOT end on good terms.

Then Austin get's hurt a second time and Paige is sort of feels obligated to be Austin's nurse, while trying to make peace with him as well. Considering Paige's sisters are marrying Austin's brothers. Peace is NOT an easy thing for these two to achieve that much I will say. Though in the end it is definately acheived.

The only "gripe" I have about the book and it really is a small "gripe" is that I think the "bad guys" were a little too obvious. That's it. That's the only "gripe" I have with the book.
