The MEN of LEGEND
One bullet is all it takes to shatter Houston Legend’s world. He swore he’d never love again, but with the future of the Lone Star Ranch on the line, he finds himself at the altar promising to love and cherish a woman he’s never met—a woman whose vulnerable beauty touches his heart.
All Lara Boone wants is a name for her baby. She never expected to fall in love with her own husband—or any man—after the heartache she’s endured. Yet when her troubled past catches up with them, Houston will move heaven and earth to protect his bride…and discover depths to a marriage of convenience neither realized could be theirs to claim.
Excerpt – Heart of a Texas Cowboy
When she moved to him, he opened his arms. She walked into his embrace as though it was door and pleasure awaited there. Inhaling the scented air, she laid her head against the hard wall of his chest. She wanted to stay there forever. Houston lightly rested his chin on the top of her head. I’m real glad you came on this drive. Nights can get lonely out here.His deep voice vibrated inside her. It was like he became part of her. I’m glad I did too. Even though I had to work to convince you.Yeah, well, I’m a stubborn fool.He put a finger under her chin and lifted her face. Without a word, he lowered his mouth. The minute his warm lips touched hers, Lara had to clutch his arm to keep from falling. Her heartbeat pounded as though trying to keep up with the blood racing through her veins. A hot, demanding, achiness swept over her. She needed this man and at the moment didn’t think she could live without him. Nor did she want to try. With a low cry, he placed his large hands under her jaw and deepened the kiss, sending a series of quickenings into her stomach similar to the ones she felt when Gracie curled in her womb. Maybe these stirrings signaled life much in the same way her baby’s movements did to let her know she was alive and couldn’t wait to be born. Maybe she was being reborn. Maybe she could forget the past and start fresh. Maybe this was what she’d waited so long for. As she leaned into him and gripped Houston’s vest, pleasure like she’d never felt swirled inside her. She clung to him afraid if she let go, he’d vanish and she’d discover it was a dream. Could this be tiny stirrings of love? Lara suddenly pushed away. No it wasn’t love because that didn’t exist. Not for her. It was too dangerous to believe in love. To believe she had anything to give any man. What’s wrong, Lara? Houston gently pushed back her hair. Did I do something to upset or frighten you? I shouldn’t have grabbed you like that.You did nothing wrong. It was her. She almost let herself believe that someone could love her. One look at her reflection showed the impossibility of such a thing. I’m sorry, she murmured brokenly.
