Shell even ignore her hearts warnings to NEVER LOVE A COWBOY

Excerpt from NEVER LOVE A COWBOY

Hes right, you know, a deep voice rumbled into the night. You should stay here.

Jessye spun around, her heart thundering. Harrison stood at the edge of the shadows, a silhouette guarded by darkness. His jacket and vest were gone. Several buttons on his white shirt were loosened as though hed been undressing and changed his mind. His black hair and beard framed his face, accentuating his emerald eyes, holding her captive. She swallowed hard. Its going to be a long while before you sleep in a bed again. You ought to be up there enjoying the comforts of a mattress.

A lazy grin spread across his face. I never enjoy being in a bed when Im in it alone.

She chuckled low. And the next words you speak are going to be an invite to join you. Ive served drinks long enough that Ive heard it all, and I know that the sweet talkin stops as soon as the whiskey wears off.

Mine wouldnt.

She laughed. Youre smoother than most, Harry. I have to give you credit for that, and if I had a dollar for every time you invited me to climb those stairs with you, I wouldnt have to go on this cattle drive.

He took a step toward her, effectively closing the distance between them until she felt the warmth of his body battling the cool night air. Why are you going, Jessye? You must realize that traveling alone with men is bound to ruin your reputation.

Ive worked in a saloon all my life. Ive got no reputation to ruin.

From what I hear, the nights on a cattle drive are not only long, but lonely.

Nights in a saloon are just as lonely.

He slowly trailed his finger along the column of her throat. The intense heat surged through her like flames igniting with the promise to consume.

Then come upstairs with me, he murmured in a low seductive voice.
