Meg Connolly used to believe the love of a good woman could tame a wild heart. Then her bad boy fiancé ran off and married Helen Vencor, a woman who literally rides a black stallion while battling fake demons with fake magic as hundreds of adoring fans cheer. The key to taming a wild heart, it seems, is an even wilder heart.
To deal with the break-up, Meg’s spent the past year doubling down on duty, racking up billable hours at her family’s law firm. That is until a blind date throws her into the path of Helen’s ex-husband, Nicholas. His kindness, and their intense chemistry, inspire Meg to stop faking and take a risk on love and life. Except Nicholas is forever tied to Helen by a child and the roleplaying game empire they co-founded. And, after her last relationship disaster, Meg promised friends, family, and herself that she’d never date a problematic guy again. Soon, it’s head versus heart, and Meg’s not sure what doing the right thing looks like anymore—until Helen offers to guide her through the chaos.
Taking Helen’s advice would throw Meg into conflict with her family and friends, as well as her own sense of right and wrong, but would put Meg in control of her own destiny for the first time. She must decide if she’s still in the business of taming hearts or if she’s finally ready to let hers run wild.
