Blacklisted from every modeling venture in New York City, Madison Worth finds herself chasing a second-chance gig on a dairy farm in rural Massachusetts: spokesmodel for the Cheese Pleese Company. But nothing can prepare her for the handsome, six foot-two owner, Jack Pleeseman.
With the death knell tolling for his 160-year-old family business, Jack is banking everything on his devastatingly beautiful top-model hire--but "everything" just took on a whole new meaning. His ex-wife wants to whisk their daughter off to Europe and he must fight for custody, all while trying to ignore Madison's mile-high legs.
Determined to avoid the sizzling sparks and oh-so-hot kiss they shared, Madison and Jack work together to put Jack's business back on the map. That is, until a chance to redeem her career lures Madison back to New York City--at the cost of losing Jack forever. Now Jack is left to choose--everything he has worked for or the woman he has waited a lifetime to love.
