Little Girl Lost

Sheriff Zac McHenry is fit to be tied. A new "working girl" just showed up at the local truck stop. He doesn't want "her kind" in town! He arrests her, but things aren't what they seem. She's no hooker…she's a librarian! Her name is Ali, and she's trying to track down a 13-year-old runaway. The girl disappeared from the truck stop a week ago and hasn't been heard from since. Zac tries to send Ali packing, even checks her out of her motel room, but she refuses to leave until she finds the girl. With the rodeo in town and all the hotel and motel rooms in the area booked up, Ali finds herself temporarily homeless. With no place else to go, she moves in with the sheriff until a room becomes available. Zac thinks his houseguest is a foul-mouthed, ill-behaved hellion. She thinks he's an interfering, arrogant bully. But when they work together to investigate a case of kidnapping, human trafficking, and murder...sparks begin to fly. Is this any way to start a romance?
