BROKEN

Rodeo took him from her once. Will it take him again?

It’s been a decade since Garth Nash left the Triple R Ranch to become a bull riding star. Now he’s back home to pay his final respects to the man he’d loved like a father—even though the visit is long overdue, and he feels a mite guilty having not come home sooner—and to console the pesky tomboy he’d loved like a little sister.

Garth soon realizes that ten years changes things. For one, there’s nothing pesky or tomboyish about Amarilla Ray now. She’s a pretty, barrel racing, ranch running cowgirl who knows exactly what she wants—to run her fathers’ ranch and compete in barrel racing one more time. Thing is, what does he want? What direction is his life taking him?

Rilla Ray loved Garth like a big brother all those years ago—except for that one bewildering not-brotherly-at-all kiss that was a huge mistake. Ten years later, her feelings spike back to that kiss and the day he left, and her emotions take her places she’s not yet ready to go. She just lost her father. She’s not risking losing Garth again.

Garth is back, broken and battered from years of bull riding. Has he changed? Could they pick up where they left off, after that forbidden kiss? Is he home to stay or is this just a stopover until he’s healed and ready to get back on a bull again?

Rodeo took him from her once—leaving her heartbroken and confused—and she knows he’s bound to leave again. She’s not a lovesick teenager any longer, but will her full-grown woman heart fare any better after he’s gone?
