and the cure for a perennial bachelor?
Raised by her healer grandfather, former army medic Ally Mowak knows her alternative approach to traditional medicine puts her at odds with most of her Alaskan town. That includes Tag James, the rugged transport pilot with the sprawling family and political ambitions. Ally couldn’t be more wrong for the aspiring senator. Then why does everything feel so right when they’re together?

Ally felt the back of her neck prickle. Her gaze swept across the sea of people and quickly latched onto Tag’s. His knowing grin paired with a quirk of one brow suggested he’d been waiting for her to catch sight of him. A furnace blast of heat radiated from her core all the way out through her skin. She returned the smile, and the next thing she knew they were moving toward each other.
“Hey,” he said, stopping in front of her. “Nice of you to come today.”
“Thank you. Flynn actually invited me like a week ago. I didn’t know any of you yet. I mean, you and I had met, but, well, I didn’t know who you were. And anyway, you know...it will be more fun now than if the party had been last week.”
She loved the deep sound of his laughter, the way it seemed to vibrate through her. “It sure will. Do you think we can find a few minutes to talk later?”
Ally wondered what about. She’d spent the previous evening trying to decide if she imagined the connection they’d forged and what to do about it. She wanted to explore it, spend time with him. But she had no idea how to go about it. She hadn’t dated much and when she had, the guy had always done the asking. Should she invite him over for dinner or maybe see if he wanted to grab lunch one day soon?
“Yeah, sure. There’s something I’d like to ask you, too. As long as you don’t plan on beating this age thing to death?” she teased.
“Hey,” he joked, “I’ll have you know age is not an issue with me. My pretend wife is years younger, and we are as happy as can be.”
A fluttery feeling spread through her, because even though he said it in jest, it was exactly what she’d hoped to hear. “How nice for you that you’ll have someone to push your wheelchair in your later years. Which obviously—” she waved a hand up and down the length of him “—is not too far off.”
Glaring playfully, he said, “Yes, and I’m hoping that soon she’ll be able to go to an R-rated movie without having to show her ID.”
“Oh, well, I doubt she’d care about showing it for that. I know for a fact she loves movies. She grew up in a village in the middle of nowhere, so a movie theater is like a huge thrill for her and... This third-person thing is getting weird now, isn’t it, because I’m talking about myself like some kind of sociopath?”
“A little,” he teased. “But it’s okay—the guy you’re talking to likes it. He finds it cute.”
