sexy cowboy from South Dakota, who curbs any woman’s need for
commitment. His relationships are all about the fun; sex, drinking, and
companionship. If she wants more from him, the game is over and he moves
on. It has been this way since he left his hometown of Hot Springs
after high school graduation.
Garrett is looking for something,
anything that might take away the monotonous feeling of traveling down
the same dead end path. An argument over the future of his family’s
ranch sends him out into the middle of a snowstorm only to be rescued by
a dark-haired, golden eyed siren. A captivating woman who could change
the game altogether!
Rayne Randall left South Dakota fifteen years
earlier in anger and grief at the tragic loss of her mother. She has
only now returned after the death of her estranged father. There is more
pain and destruction in this place than any other. She has been cursed
to live each day with the understanding that her father killed her
Rayne wants nothing to do with her family’s ranch. There are
no ties here worth remembering! So why did she have to meet a sinfully
handsome cowboy who would inspire her to dig for the truth? Assuming the
job as her foreman and her friend, Garrett Johnson just might be the
blessing Rayne never thought would come.
“I think God was punishing me. I don’t deserve to be
loved.” She was so calm as she said the words. There was a weariness in
her voice that spoke eloquently of a woman giving up. She was defeated
and the defeat had hollowed her. No wonder she was angry and closed off.
Garrett wrapped his arms tightly around her, hugging her body into his.
“You’re so wrong about that, Rayne. You deserve to be loved and
cherished.” His chest felt like there was a heavy weight sitting on it.
His throat closed with emotion.
How could anyone think they weren’t worthy of love? How could so much
destruction happen to one person? If Garrett had been in Rayne’s shoes,
he would have raged and struggled just as she had. The mess was coming
to life and he wasn’t certain how to fix any of it.

How could someone she just met be so in tune to her
mind? The Cowboy had her melting into his hands and soon she’d be
begging him to do passionate things to her body. Hell, she’d beg to do
unspeakable things to his! Garrett lowered himself to his knees and
instinctively Rayne’s fingers interlaced in his dark hair. He pressed
his lips against her stomach and groaned as her finger nails scraped his
scalp. Feeling that exquisite heat so close to the spot she truly
wanted him, Rayne felt her core flex and clench in demand.
Holy mother of all that was good! Garrett’s tongue laved just above her
waistband of her pants as his fingertips slid her button free and opened
her pants to reveal the black lace panties she had selected. In the
back of her mind she had hoped he would see them. She leaned fully back
against the wall and her hips thrust forward of their own accord. Every
piece of her body and every inch of her skin begged to be touched. She
felt his knowing grin against the top of her panties. Mentally she
cursed her inability to deny him or better yet, to deny herself.
