SIX-PACK COWBOY SERIES
Actor Bellarose Abbott finds herself completely out of her element the minute her private jet touches down in rural Washington State. The big hats and boots speak volumes that she isn’t in Hollywood anymore. But the producer of her latest TV series wants authentic ranch scenery as well as action, which means Bellarose must learn to… ride a horse?
Kingsley Yates, known by those that matter as King, has spent a lifetime dreaming of raising his own thoroughbred horse bloodline on his ranch. To do that he needs one hell of a horse—with one hell of a price tag attached to it. Just when he thinks his dream’s out of reach, an offer lands in his lap that could mean the cash he needs. And a huge pain in his backside.
Having a famous actor shadowing his every move on the ranch is irritating enough, but does Bellarose have to be drop-dead gorgeous too? At every turn, he’s thinking of having his way with her when he should be teaching her the ropes to earn that cold, hard cash. Bellarose has dated a lot of gorgeous men, but those pretty boys have nothing on King. Could she be smitten with the hardened rancher or is this all from working closely? One thing’s certain—she’s never had a kiss, on or off-camera, as hot as King’s.
Aria has never made decisions for herself—it seems life makes them for her, which is how she’s become a star on the hit western TV show REDEMPTION FALLS. Now it seems she’s landed herself with a fiancé she doesn’t exactly want. No way is she getting hitched, so it’s high time she does something about it. But she didn’t plan to be a runaway bride—it just sort of happened.
Wheeler is not only laid up with a broken foot but his horse is on watch with a tough injury too. Hobbling to the barn is a trial and his work as a wrangler is off limits. When he goes out to attempt morning chores, he finds a beautiful woman asleep in his barn. Discovering she is a famous actor from the show filming nearby is even less shocking than her plea for him to keep her hidden. Letting her stay on his fixer-upper ranch is an easy yes when she proves she knows how to tend his injured horse, and just looking at her alluring curves does a whole lot for his low spirits.
Aria can’t hide forever, but she’s reluctant to leave her cozy retreat. The hunky—and stubborn—cowboy provides no pressure as well as a much-needed listening ear. Besides, here on his ranch she finally feels she’s doing something she enjoys and making decisions, even if they aren’t all for her. After an opportunity falls into Wheeler’s lap, she can’t let it pass by. But now she isn’t sure if she took the leap for him or for herself. What if it ends up benefiting both?
