The right love is worth the wait.
Seven years have passed since I fell for Boone West. The brooding bad boy. We were friends, even when I secretly wanted more, but I settled for what he offered. After he left Wyoming–and me–I grew up. Moved on. Or so I believed until he blew back into my life with the scorching force of an Arizona desert wind.
I’m not that innocent sixteen-year-old girl anymore–I’m a businesswoman who swore never to settle again. But this older, wiser, hotter version of Boone unsettles me. How am I supposed to resist his megawatt smile and his built-army-strong body? Especially when he’s inserting himself into every aspect of my life? Now he’s determined to prove he can offer me everything that he couldn’t before–and he’s the only man that can fix the heart that he broke.
Joining the army? Best decision I ever made. Even though it meant I had to leave her behind. Sierra McKay. The wide-eyed beauty, who saw more in me than I saw in myself. I didn’t dare offer her anything more than friendship, because one kiss, one touch and I wouldn’t have had the guts to go.
I’ve worked hard to become the man I am. I have a career. A purpose. After a chance encounter with the one woman I never forgot–I’m not leaving anything else to chance. Now that I’ve chased her across three states, I’m ready to demonstrate that the passion we couldn’t act on before burns hotter than ever between us. And I’ll use every weapon in my arsenal to show Sierra McKay that she’s always been mine.
I am so glad that I got to read this book! I love all things McKay and West! I loved the series that spawned this one. I cried after reading Cowboy Take Me Away. I was devastated that the series was over! I needed Boone and Sierra’s book.
Boone is a West. Sierra is a McKay. Their families are related but not these two particular people. The author put this story on a slow simmer and made us wait. As a reader of the first series, you don’t really know a lot about the Wests. It’s still my hope that the author will finish the West saga. This was a sweet love story and has whetted my appetite for the next book.
Lorelei James is a wonderfully talented author. She evokes such an emotional response from her readers. Whether she’s writing about ranching, war injuries, health issues or committed triads, she sucks you into her stories. Thank you Ms. James for bringing me back to the family that I love and have missed terribly.
