An accidental meeting has Meg asking for answers, which he'll give if she travels hundreds of miles to her cousin's ranch where he works. Maybe making her go out of her way will help Meg understand that he's not a good guy. His rough past makes it impossible to fit into her world.

He doesn’t believe she’ll travel to her cousin’s ranch to discuss why he disappeared from her life, so she does him one better and hires on. She didn’t want him back—she wants to prove that she can rise to a challenge. Unfortunately, the attraction they once shared has not withered and died as she’d once thought…if anything it’s stronger than ever.
