As cowboys, the Langston brothers of Cattle Creek, Texas, know it can hurt like hell to fall off a horse. But it can hurt even more to fall in love. . . .
Sheriff Seth Langston is head over heels for local wild child Jessie McAllen and has been for years. The trouble is she has eyes only for Seth’s rodeo star brother, Chase. Even though he considers Jessie his girl, Chase is an incorrigible ladies’ man with a wandering eye and no chance of settling down soon.
Jessie is ready to move away from Cattle Creek to put her feelings for Chase behind her, but after she shares a white-hot kiss with Seth, things get a little complicated. Jessie realizes her heart should have been his all along. And in the face of sudden tragedy, they’ll discover if their newfound passion will tear the Langston men apart or make the family stronger than ever. . . .
She rose on her toes and pressed her mouth to his. He loved her!
His lips were stiff beneath hers. Then they softened as she continued to kiss him.
He loved her and yet he pulled away.
“Jessie,” he said, his voice choked and strained. “I need to go to work.”
“You mean now?” she asked, deciding that if he wasn’t going to let her kiss his lips, she would move her efforts to his jaw and that crazy pulse beating in his neck.
“Soon,” he croaked.
“How soon?” she asked, sliding her hands down his chest. He had been so diligent in his courting efforts, but enough was enough. There was something between them. She couldn’t say exactly what it was. But he loved her and she was beginning to think that she loved him in return.
Scratch that. She did love him. She had loved him her entire life like a brother, but ever since that afternoon in his truck . . .
He had been thoughtful and angry. Her rock, her nemesis, her savior, and now her husband. What was not to love?
She continued to kiss her way down his neck. How could one man smell so good?
“Half an hour,” he corrected, swooping in to capture her lips with his own. The kiss was searing and curled her toes. She loved every bone-melting minute of it. “Forty-five minutes. I got forty-five minutes before someone comes looking for me.”
She laughed as he captured her lips once again. They could do a lot in forty-five minutes.
