- Roping in His Heart
Dakota focuses on fun, sex and winning the National Finals Rodeo until his private life spins out of control and he struggles to keep his world from falling apart.
Dakota Neri has the lifelong goal of winning the calf-roping competition at the National Finals Rodeo. At thirty, the pieces of his professional life are coming together. The same can’t be said for his personal life, though. He shares an open relationship with Ayden Haskell, a fellow roper and his boyfriend of several years. On occasion, both men serve as convenient sitters for five-year-old Rory, his ex-wife Kayla’s son.
Dakota is eager to pursue his rodeo-winning goal when his carefully constructed world unravels, beginning with Kayla’s death in a foggy, early morning car crash. His hopes are strained when he discovers she named him as Rory’s guardian. Dakota has always been an advocate for the youngster but this change turns his world into a kaleidoscope of relationships, some good and others determined to tear his new family apart.
