Professional rodeo cowboy Jesse West has made a career out of going with his gut and holding on tight. When he learns that the woman of his dreams is suddenly single, he’s determined to win her back.
Tara Kent has already lost everything she ever dreamed of. With her career in crisis and her longtime fiancée in another woman’s bed, she wishes she could crawl under the covers and hide. She definitely isn’t ready for a free-spirited cowboy to ride roughshod over her heart.
Jesse’s used to working with difficult horses—he knows how to take his time and gain their trust—but reaching Tara’s wounded heart is proving to be far more of a challenge. Can he convince the feisty beauty that she doesn’t have to be perfect to be loved?
He grinned lazily at her, and she felt a little flame flicker alight somewhere down inside her. “It must be a heavy burden needing to do everything right all the time.”
“It would be better if I tried to do stuff wrong?”
He shook his head, smiling. “Nope, but sometimes you’ve gotta just do stuff, and figure out the right or wrong part later.”
“That kind of behavior sounds like it could get you into trouble.”
“Yeah,” his smile broadened into a grin. His eyes narrowed slightly and flashed as the sunlight caught them. “That’s exactly what I’m talking about.”
