Erotic Romance, Western Romance
Cassandra's sharp shooting skills surpass even the men who compete and those same skills come in handy when she's presented with the challenge of taking back her father's ranch. She's been gone ten years and knows the men will think she's just a high-maintenance female from back east. They'll all have a surprise when she starts giving the orders and takes back what belongs to her!
But she also worries about the relationship she'd had with Gabe ten years ago and knows they will see each other. Can she forgive him and start over to work on re-establishing what they had? Or will she hire a new manager for the ranch?
She watched Gabe closely for a sign of lies but saw none. Gabe never flinched nor looked away. "I'm sorry I told you to never contact me. I've tried to forget what we had. I made myself believe you'd found a woman to make you happy...since I must not have done that for you." A tear slipped down her cheek and made her mad that she'd let him see how much he affected her.
"My gawd, Cassi...I've thought of no one but you for ten years! Assuming you wanted nothing more to do with me, I didn't try to find you."
Through tear-filled eyes, Cassi admired Gabe, wishing things didn't have to be so difficult. This was really more her fault for not reaching out. He'd changed for the better, filling out his broad shoulders and his upper arms. Could she let him hold her without wondering if he wished she were someone else? Looking away, Cassi wiped her cheek.
This was too hard. They would have to get past so many hurdles...but they did have time on their side.
Gabe stood and walked toward the steps. "If you decide to fire me as manager, I'll understand."
Cassi gasped and jumped up. "Gabe! That's not what I want..."
He turned back and the hurt in his eyes stabbed her heart. "I don't know what you want, Cass."
