BETTING ON THE COWBOY, AVAILABLE NOW FROM HARLEQUIN SUPERROMANCE
Brianna learned early not to show what she really felt. Her temptestuous big sister, Rowena, was the perfect role model for what not to do, always at loggerheads with ...well, everyone. But Bree also learned not to trust anyone. Her mother had been restless, unfaithful, emotionally remote. Her father had been--a lunatic. And, worst of all, for several, terrifying days after their mother's murder, no one had stepped up to offer Bree a home.
The family friend who finally took her in insisted on cheerfulness and cooperation from her traumatized adoptee. "No one likes a sad sack, Bree."
So is it any wonder Bree developed a slightly chilly exterior? What else could protect the vulnerablity inside? If her faithless fiancee, Charlie, can't deal with that, then good riddance to him!
When she goes home, to recover from her failed engagemen, and to help with the opening of the new Bell River Dude Ranch, the last thing she's looking for is a lover. And, even if she were, the last man she'd ever consider in that role is gorgeous bad boy Grayson Harper III.
The disgraced heir to the Harper Marble Quarry millions, this cowboy has serious commitment issues--far worse than Charlie's! Gray and Bree will have to work together at Bell River, but he's already announced he's not in Silverdell to stay. He wants his job for only four weeks, not a day longer--just long enough to win his ridiculous bet with his grandfather, and get himself reinstated in the old tyrant's will.
And if you can't get enough of the complex Wright sisters, be sure to preorder Penny's story, The Ranch She Left Behind. Coming in December from Superromance.
