Read an Excerpt

"So, you moved in?" He made it sound like she was going to use squatter's rights to take control of the Rocking C Ranch.

"Only temporarily," she said. "To help Bonita. Now that you're here, of course I'll leave." No way could she stay in the house with Trevor in residence. She felt dizzy just thinking about it. Her hormones had awakened from a long dormant sleep and Beth didn't trust the little suckers. Not one bit. They'd gotten her into trouble once and she didn't want that to happen again. When it came to men, Beth knew she was a walking disaster.

She picked up her sandwich and bit into it. What with talking so much, she'd neglected her food. And she was hungry. She and Mags had worked all morning sorting books.

Trevor poured more iced tea in his glass. Beth felt his eyes on her as she ate. Her stomach flip-flopped again. Oh no, she couldn't stay.

"You don't have to leave," he said, breaking the awkward silence.

Beth jerked her head up and stared at him. "Excuse me? Yes, I do. I'm leaving."

"No, you're not. There's no reason for you to go. I'll be in and out a lot while I'm in Stone Creek. You obviously have a big job to do with the books. We won't get in each other's way. And I'll make it worth your while."

Beth frowned. Surely the man didn't mean that like it sounded. "Make it worth my while?"

He shrugged. "Pay for your services."

"My services?" She knew she sounded like a parrot, but she couldn't help it. The man had her flustered.

"Cooking, cleaning, looking after the place. Like you're doing now. Only you'd get compensated."

"I don't want your money."

"What do you want?" he asked softly.

This book was fun to read. I especially liked the down to earth mother and her precocious but delightful daughter. Of course, liking the sexy guy was a given! This free book for my Nook was from Barnes and Noble with 173 pages. I appreciate getting a no risk chance to read books by an author I didn't know about before. I thought she wrote a great story of love, insecurity, denial of ones feelings, romance and sex. (I'd say this book is for people 18 and over.) The only criticism is that it was predictable. Now some say a predictable story allows you to relax since you are 99% sure of how things will turn out. The saving grace for me was how well the author told this tale. I will look for more novels by this author. Books I will gladly pay for, since I feel confident I will enjoy reading them.
