Notorious playboy and daredevil bull rider Bowie West didn’t plan to seduce innocent Lucy, but the passion that ignited between them was too strong to resist.
Can Bowie convince Lucy that a roving rodeo cowboy is ready to settle down?
“You’re getting to have quite a mouth on you, young lady.”
“You’re just getting to know me better. You might not like me so much once all your illusions about innocent virgins have been dashed.”
“Oddly enough, the more I learn about you the more I like you.” He stepped forward, pushing her hood back off her head and letting the rain pour down over the cascading tendrils of her dark hair. “You’re just full of my kind of surprises.”
He slid his arms inside her raincoat and pulled her toward him. Warm rainwater ran into their mouths as they opened them to kiss. Steam rose gently from them into the damp air as they allowed their hands to roam over each other.
There wasn’t anywhere she’d rather be than in Bowie West’s arms. When he held her, she felt safe. She’d been alone so long that she was used to being tough enough to take on the world by herself. Now that she was getting a taste of what it was like to share your burdens and your joys with someone else she in danger of becoming addicted.
“I have an idea.” He took her hand and turned toward the barn. “I don’t think I’ve ever had a roll in real hay.”
“I think you’ll find it rather scratchy,” said Lucy doubtfully. But then she’d never had a roll in real hay either. Rolling in the hay seemed to be pretty popular, so who was she to go against tradition?
