Overview

A cynical city lawyer finds his ordered life turned around when he meets a handsome cowboy during a weekend getaway on his friend's ranch. Charles Fletcher is happy to accept an invitation from his best friend, Royce Chandler to his family owned ranch in Northern California, but doesn't expect his life to be turned around by the newly hired assistant foreman, Jed Miller. Although Charles finds Jed attractive, he is uncomfortably aware that the cowboy seems to be carrying what Charles terms – too much baggage. Despite Royce and his lover Parker's attempts to bring the two men together, Charles is wary of Jed's often aloof attitude. It's not until Jed shows up drunk, and Charles is the only one there to help him back on his feet, that the two men connect, both physically and emotionally. What looks like a promising love affair is thrown a curve when Jed receives a call from his ex lover asking his forgiveness for their break up and to please come home. Charles, determined not to show how much Jed really matters to him, tells Jed, "Hey, it was great fun, but it was just one of those things", and returns to Los Angeles. Once again, Royce and Parker attempt their cupid act, but will their good intentions bring Charles and Jed together, or have both of them singing 'I'm a Lone Cowhand'? Reader Advisory:This book is the sequel to Ride 'Em Cowboy.

Read an Excerpt

Aaron Chandler looked up from the papers he’d been studying as his foreman, Parker Jones, entered the office, a dreamy smile on his face “Mornin’ Boss.” Aaron gave him a knowing look. “You’re mighty chipper this morning, Parker. Been talking to Royce, have you?” “Uh, yes…he called first thing this morning. He’ll be here tomorrow noon.” “I know. And you’ll most likely talk to him another half dozen times before then. You boys must be rackin’ up quite a phone bill between you.” “Well…we got this special rate, y’see…” Aaron chuckled. “I was just joshin’ you, Parker. You found me another hand yet?” Parker relaxed a little as he prepared to answer. He was always a little uncomfortable when Royce’s dad got personal about his relationship with his son. No matter that Aaron had been a captive witness to the two of them reunited after a misunderstanding that had parted them for over a year. Parker had broken up with Royce thinking it was the only way to get him to take the lucrative offer from the law firm where he now worked. Royce had stormed out of Parker’s life but had rushed home when Parker called him to let him know his father had been injured in a road accident. While Aaron lay seemingly unconscious in a hospital bed, Royce, on hearing Parker’s reason for breaking up with him fell into his arms, and within earshot of his father, declared his undying love for his cowboy. Aaron had chastised them for making fools of themselves in front of him but had given them his reluctant blessing, saying, “I can’t say I’m over the damned moon about it, but if my son has to spend the rest of his life with another fella, then I guess I’m glad it’s you, Parker.” “Well?” Aaron looked at him expectantly. “Oh, yeah—” Parker focused on his boss. “That’s why I’m here,” he said. “I interviewed this guy from Cattle Valley, Wyoming, yesterday. Name’s Miller, Jed Miller. Good references, been a ranch hand for the past five years, assistant foreman for two.” “Why’d he leave Cattle Valley?” “Personal reasons he says. I didn’t aim to pry too much. His references are good…” “So you said, but personal reasons, Parker? What do you suppose that means?” Aaron frowned and stroked his jaw. “Was he rubbin’ someone the wrong way, gettin’ into fights? You call up there and talk to anyone?” “No, I didn’t.” “Well, maybe you should.” Parker shuffled his feet. “Boss, I…” “I know, you don’t aim to pry, but I want to know what a fella’s about before I hire him. Supposin’ he’s a trouble maker?” “Doesn’t seem the type to me. Told me right away he was gay. Said he hoped that wasn’t a problem. ‘Course, him comin’ from Cattle Valley I had that figured. So, I told him no problem, and I also told him ‘bout Royce and me. Hope you don’t mind, Boss.” “I don’t mind if you don’t, Parker.” “And besides, his references—” “Yeah, yeah. Well, you haven’t let me down yet with your hiring. Bring him in so I can give him a once over.” Parker glanced at his watch. “He should be here in a couple of minutes.” “Good.” Aaron waved at the chair by his desk. “Take a load off ‘til he gets here. Want some coffee? Annie’s brewin’ some fresh as we speak.” “Sounds good.” He sat in the proffered chair and stretched out his legs. “So you’re lookin’ forward to Royce being here, I bet. You met this friend he’s bringing?” “Yeah, Charles. He’s quite a character.” Aaron raised an eyebrow. “By that, do you mean he’s, uh, flamboyant?” “Not really—well, let me put it this way. He has one helluva sense of humour, can take a joke with the best of ‘em—and about his bein’ gay, he doesn’t hold anything back.” “Hope he doesn’t scare some of the boys,” Aaron chuckled. “Oh, they’ll be cool with it. They know all about Royce and me.” “But you don’t, you know, swish.” Parker managed a laugh. “Charles doesn’t swish, Boss. He’s just a little different. It’ll be fine, really. You’ll like him.”

    Love cowboys!

    Fast paced, filled with humor,hot sex and just enough conflict to make this well written story a keeper. I loved the two men. Royce and Parker and the secondary characters were fun and feisty. A great read.

    Cowboys,

    Who couldn't love Jed? He's hot but just a little naive and not prepared for Charles a feisty lawyer with a lot of notches on his bedpost. I really loved the chemistry between these two, and when it looked like it was going to blow up in their faces i nearly choked - fortunately JP didn' nt let me down - really hot story!
