She’ll do anything to spite her mother and find her own happiness…even keep her cowboy billionaire boyfriend a secret.
Virginia Winters is Kentucky royalty as the heir of the largest whiskey distillery in the state. She’s been managing the company for two decades, but she hasn’t been able to figure out how to manage her mother’s expectations.
Cayden Chappell has been interested in Ginny for months, and she’s definitely interested in him too. They’ve attended all of her social functions together over the holidays, but everything is so stiff and formal. He’s not sure if he’s getting the real version of Ginny or the one wearing a mask to keep up appearances.
When her mother tells Cayden horses and whiskey don’t mix, and that he needs to end their relationship, he doesn’t know how to disobey someone as powerful as Wendy Winters.
So he does what Wendy wants; he stays away from Ginny. She doesn’t call him either, baffled as she is by his sudden silence.
When they meet up at a gin and gems event at Sweet Rose Whiskey, their explosive feelings for each other come forward again. After a kiss that reminds them both that their previous time together was real, he confesses that her mother asked him to break-up with Ginny.
Furious, Ginny confronts her mother only to learn her mother has an old grudge against the Chappells. If Ginny disobeys her mother and dates Cayden anyway…she’ll lose Sweet Rose Whiskey.
She’ll lose everything she’s worked for over the past twenty years.
Ginny suddenly has a difficult choice to make: the career and family business she loves? Or the man who makes her feel loved and cherished for the first time in her life?
They devise a plan to have the best of both worlds. It’s simple, really. They’ll take their forbidden relationship underground and out of sight.
Can Ginny and Cayden’s love truly survive in the shadows? Or will they both end up broken-hearted if the truth comes out?
