Dr. Jules Montgomery needed a hero for just one night. Dane Andrews, Boss to his men, had only one rule—never mess with any woman in his home town. All it took was a stranger’s arms wrapped around his neck, and her soft, warm lips whispering in his ear, "Help a girl out. Your name's Gary, and you're my boyfriend," for Boss to break his rules.
Boss quickly stepped into the role of hero and fantasy boyfriend, finding it impossible to say no to the mesmerizing beautiful redhead. He played Gary to her Red. For one night only, they belonged to each other, fulfilling each other’s fantasies.
Five years later, fate and a redheaded four-almost five-year-old named Becca reunite them once again. Their lives have taken different paths, although neither has forgotten the other. Jules returns to her home town to reconcile with her aunt, only to discover that her aunt is the housekeeper to Boss, a man with an occupation that goes against everything Jules holds dear. Boss is considered a hero by those who know him, although he now needs a service dog by the name of Lucky to keep him safe. Together, man and dog become the heroes that Jules needs once again to keep her and her family safe for more than one night.
Deborah Armstrong believes in love, romance, and happily ever after. Although she is still in search of that perfect cup of coffee, she finds time to enjoy her favourite past times: reading, music, travelling, and spending time with friends and family.
Jules knew Boss as her fantasy boyfriend. Now that she is reunited with him and knows who he is, she doubts everything she thought about him.
Have you ever had that experience? Meeting a person and being thoroughly enchanted by them, but when you meet again, you wonder what you were thinking?
Jules watched him with wary eyes. The man she had asked to rescue her from a bad situation and who eagerly obliged her, the man who played along with being her fantasy boyfriend for one perfect night seemed to be playing with her now. He seemed too relaxed, too comfortable in her presence, especially after what she had said to him earlier. This time Jules could only see him as a stranger, a man she didn’t know, and one she should handle with caution.
