It should have been simple and straightforward—business, and nothing but business. A quick trip to Colorado to scout out a location for my newest real estate development acquisition. Fly in, drive to the location, talk the owners into selling, sign some papers, and go home.
A business trip like any other, something I’ve done hundreds of times without issue.
This time, however, I was waylaid. First by a runaway horse—and then by an angry, stormy pair of vivid blue eyes, a massive, mountainous set of brawny shoulders, a strong, powerful pair of hands, and a voice like thunder over the horizon.
Will is a man out of another era, a man of stillness and action in equal measure—a man in complete possession of himself and his world in a way I’ve never experienced. And suddenly, somehow, he comes to possess me, my mind, my heart, and and my body, in a way neither of us are ready for, and neither of us know how to resist.
What should have been a simple business deal quickly spirals out of control, becoming a struggle of life and death, a battle of hearts and passion…
Brooklyn is going to be taking over the helm of her father’s business. She just has to prove herself worthy. By taking a big risk for the company. She needs to find something off the beaten path that can add value to the companies portfolio. With the help of her team, she goes to visit a remove cowboy town that has a working Saloon and general store. Brooklyn just needs to talk to the family that owns the land and town. Once at the small town she realizes winning over the owner isn’t going to be easy, he won’t even give her 5 minutes to listen to her pitch. He’s all bossy business. That doesn’t deter Brooklyn, she sets out on a horse to the Alpha camp to speak with him. It’s no better. They get caught up in a rain and hail storm.
Will has no time for this chick who is following him all over. He has to admit she’s pretty gutsy for doing it. But he’s not selling. PERIOD. Yet, when he’s alone with her, he senses something else in her. Something that he shouldn’t want or need, yet does. Like a coward, he runs from her, because he’s a man and can’t handle his feelings. A few months later instead of running from her, he is running to her. Things changed. He changed. But his need for her only grows stronger.
This story flowed really well. I love how driven Brooklyn is. Nothing is going to stop this chick!! NOTHING. Not even a horse that she has no idea how to ride. When Brookly and Will figure everything out. It’s like someone turns on a light for them and they can see. Will is a man’s man and he is swoonworthy.
