Cowboys of Crested Butte Book 3
Release Date Nov. 13, 2017
Blythe Cochran is a woman who’s never been treated the cowboy way—and Jace Rice knows he is just the man to teach her what that means. Unless his twin brother, Tucker, gets in the way.
The last place Blythe wants to spend Thanksgiving is at the Flying R Ranch in Crested Butte, Colorado, but that’s where she’s headed. She and her best friend’s family have always celebrated the holiday together, so it was go along, or spend the holiday home alone. Feeling sorry for herself because she’s dateless and her best friend is newly engaged, Blythe asks Renie to fix her up with a hot cowboy. When she arrives and meets not one, but TWO of the hottest cowboys she’s ever seen, Blythe decides the holiday might not be so bleak after all. When both men compete for her attention, it’s hard for her to choose.
Who would win her affection—easy-going, bronc-riding, cowboy Jace, or brooding artist Tucker? Regardless of whom she chooses, there is a secret being held between the brothers which could drive a permanent wedge between the two men, who each touch a different part of her soul. When the hidden truth is finally exposed, will it tear a family apart, or heal past wounds?
This is book can be read as a standalone with no cliffhanger.
Before Thanksgiving, Renie had talked Ben and the rest of the guys in CB Rice into playing at the Goat that night. The bar, owned by the Rice family, was an institution on Elk Avenue, the main drag in Crested Butte.
With Tucker gone, the mood was subdued.
Her dad sat in on a couple of songs, and when he wasn’t, he danced with Blythe.
“My turn.” Jace tapped her father on the shoulder. Mark stepped aside, and Jace wrapped his arm around her waist, pulling her in, close to him. He rested his cheek against her hair and breathed in the scent of her.
“I’m sorry about today.”
“Why are you sorry?”
“Again, why are you sorry? Tucker was the one who disappeared without saying goodbye.”
He didn’t know what to say. He understood how Tucker was feeling, more than he wanted to. The guilt began to creep in again.
“Jace, are you okay?”
He knew she could feel the tension that was slowly spreading throughout his body. He’d hoped holding her would stop it from happening this time.
“Yeah, I’m okay.”
She pulled back so she could look in his eyes, but he didn’t want her to. Not tonight.
“Let me hold you, Blythe.” He wrapped his arm around her waist a little tighter. He felt her breath catch as much as he heard it.
“It must be bad, whatever it is.”
He couldn’t answer her, but yes, it was bad.
The rest of the band took a break, but Ben stayed where he was, just him and his guitar. Every word he sang cut into Jace’s heart. It was as if Ben knew what had happened, but Jace knew that wasn’t possible. Nobody knew but him. Not even Tucker.
So don’t fall in love, there’s just too much to lose
If you’re given the choice, then I beg you to choose
To walk away, walk away, don’t let her get you.
I can’t bear to see the same happen to you.
Please, don’t be sad now, I really believe,
She was the greatest thing that happened to me.
