Overview

Tough tomboy Tabitha Conrad rides bulls and barebacks broncs like a champ. In only her second rodeo season, she's headed for the finals. An over-protective older brother and his buddy, however, sometimes take care of her a little too well, and she's having trouble living up to the bold, bawdy reputation most cowgirls enjoy. Wes Duncan lost his father and an older brother to bulls in the arena. Now he's working as a rodeo clown, determined to save as many downed riders as he can. He finds feisty little Tab immensely attractive, but as his best friend's kid sister, she's off limits. As much as Wes admires her spunk and determination, every time she comes out on a bull, he almost has a heart attack. What can Wes do to keep Tab safe? And if he gives in to his heart and his lust, who will keep her safe from him? Before they know it, Tab and Wes are caught up in a whirlwind of passion and misunderstandings. It takes a very close call to bring them to their senses and get Tab up for the ride of her life... [Genres: Contemporary / Cowboys / Western (Modern Day) / Action / Adventure]

Read an Excerpt

A small squeak of alarm escaped before she could control it. No, I'm not ready for a change. Why can't things go on just like they are now for a little longer? "You think? I didn't know it was that far along yet. I mean, so soon?"

"Haven't you been paying attention, Little Bit? I'm thinking it wouldn't be real comfortable to be the fifth wheel there, not for either of us, even if we kind of hooked up, too. Sure we could probably both find some new travel partners, but it wouldn't be the same. And I don't know if I can go on holding my breath every time you come out on a ride, 'specially a bull. But then I think what if I wasn't there and someone else was more worried about his own ass than savin' yours?"

The intensity in his soft words tore at her. He was opening doors she had been stubborn about keeping shut tight. Before she could pull herself together enough to reply, his mouth came down over hers in a hard, hot, urgent kiss. He cupped her butt with one big, long fingered hand and lifted her against the erection straining at his zipper. A gush of moisture flooded her panties as their bodies ground together. Somewhere in the back of her mind a small voice was saying, Whoa, hold it. This is Wes, for gosh sake. What the blazes are you doing?

His other hand found her breast through her t-shirt and rolled a nipple under the thin fabric. She whimpered, clutching at his shoulders, tangling her fingers into the thick rusty-blond hair at the back of his neck. As from a distance, she heard footsteps crunching past in the gravel and an amused voice said, "Get a room, cowboy."

That wasn't necessary. They were almost to the camper. Dragging his mouth free ofhers, Wes lifted her off her feet. She locked her legs around his lean hips and held on for dear life as he stumbled the last few steps, jerked open the door and thrust her inside. There was no time to unfold the couch that made into a double bed. They fell on it as they tore at each other's clothes.

It seemed surreal. Until the last few minutes, Tab had never considered Wes as anything but one of Gid's friends and, through that, a friend of hers. He'd seemed like a gentle guy with quiet strength, another big brother taking care of her--whether she needed and wanted to be protected or not.

All at once he'd transformed into a sexy man who was hot for her body and had her turned on like a five hundred-watt bulb. She ought to slow down and try to figure out what was going on, but she was just too damned sizzling.
