Kate Burke is done making bad decisions. Thirty years old and belatedly determined to grow up, the successful travel writer and one-time party girl returns to work at the remote Ponderosa Pines Ranch to reassess her life.
Although her kitchen/cabin staff is lacking and the workload never relents, Kate’s main challenge is Shane Maddox, the ruggedly handsome and doggedly stubborn ranch foreman. Instantly at odds, they battle over everything from ceiling fans to bothersome bats—studiously ignoring the sparks they generate with each confrontation.
They can’t explain their explosive physical chemistry, but after a few frustrated weeks they can’t deny it either. Their solution? Just once. They’ll get past their inconvenient lust and move on.
Kate’s been trying to think with her head instead of her hormones, but is this just another bad decision in a lifetime of careless choices? Has she really changed at all?
Set in the striking and serene hills of southern Colorado, Julianna Keyes’ debut novel offers a sizzling and satisfying tale of unexpected chemistry and the power of second chances. Her characters will get under your skin and into your heart. Just once may not be enough for you either.

This is one of the best books light hearted, sweet, romantic books I have had a chance to read in a while. Even though the book started out with Kate focused on going back to basics and doing a little sole searching at a ranch that she spent 3 summers at while she was young, the author made a fantastic introduction of Shane into the story. Wow!!! Shane the Foreman, The General Manager, The Boss! Besides enjoying the story of Shane & Kate, I loved loved loved the side stories intertwined with Janie, Hailey, Lisa and Becca. I completely give this book 5 stars! It had sweet romance, not hardcore smut.(which I do not mind by the way) It had the lost soles searching for happiness. It had the big city rich girls growing up. I can say that I would read this more than “Just Once”!
