Loving a Lawman
by Amy Lillard
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
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. . . .
“Did you do this with Millie?”
“Hmmm?” He turned back to face her, but his eyes were focused on a point just above her left ear.
“Millie. Did you ever tell Millie that you had run out of gas just so you could, uh . . .”
Seth nodded, then ducked his head looking almost chagrined. Almost.
“Men are skunks,” she said with a laugh.
“Not all of us.” He chuckled.
“Might as well be.” She sat back in her seat as smoke continued to roll out from under the hood.
But instead of thinking about the trickery of men, she remembered the time she had accidentally run across Seth kissing Millie in the game room at the ranch. She couldn’t have been more than ten, but she could tell that it was a good kiss, like the kind in the R-rated movie she had snuck in to see. They had thought they were alone, and Jessie had been nearly paralyzed with something she couldn’t name as she watched them. Now she knew it was merely curiosity, but that kiss had stayed with her all these years.
Suddenly she wanted to know what it felt like to be kissed that way, with that all-consuming need. Cherished, desired, loved.
She scooted across the seat toward Seth, not giving a second thought to anything but him. And that kiss.
He didn’t speak as she tipped back his hat and pressed her lips to his.
