Can't stop running from the past

Dani Crawford has a secret…and if bounty hunter Jackson Cade finds out, he could ruin everything. The scarred yet handsome cowboy has tracked a dangerous criminal to the dude ranch Dani manages, and to get rid of Jack she'll have to help him catch his man. But the closer they get to cornering their quarry the more Dani wants Jack to stay. Spending time with him is making her long for things she can never have thanks to a past mistake. And if the truth comes out she may be spending her future behind bars rather than safe in her cowboy's arms…


And then he pulled back, his eyes on her, his expression a silent question she couldn’t answer. Instead, she reached up and kissed his scar, wanting him to know that it made him beautiful to her. How much he meant to her. How every atom of her wanted to be here with him.
He angled his head and kissed her once more, slowly and tenderly.
Their shallow breaths filled the space and they stared at each other, chests rising and falling, his brown eyes black in the dim light.
“Dani, I—I can’t promise you anything. I’ve got to find those guys and I’m no good to anyone until I do… I might not be, even then.”
“It’s okay. We were caught up in the storm. The moment.” She went for an off-hand tone, missed completely. When she whirled away, he turned her back gently, his tender expression making her ache.
“If there was anyone I would get involved with…”
She placed a finger on his lips, then managed to stay quiet for a dozen heartbeats as she struggled to say, finally, “I get it. I’m not interested in a serious relationship, either.” Liar.
“Let’s forget this ever happened,” she added.
He shook his head slowly. “Impossible,” he said, then pulled on his partly dried shirt, doused the fire and guided her outside, where the rain had slacked off.
Dani eyed Jack’s swaying back as he rode ahead, checking the path for obstacles or lurking strangers.
She did get it. She was the last person he should be involved with… Another wanted person, just like his brother’s killers. Worse, a criminal and a coward. She could never be with Jack, have anything permanent because she kept this big secret.
She didn’t deserve him.

About the Author

In a quest to provide her ELA students with quality reading material, educator Karen Rock read everything out there and couldn't wait to add her voice to the genre. In addition to her work as a Young Adult romance novelist, she's now an author for Harlequin's Heartwarming line and thrilled to pen stories that moms can share with their teenage daughters. She's loved Harlequin books since she spent summers going through her grandmother's Presents books that she passed along in paper grocery bags each year. As half of the writing duo J.K. Rock, Karen also pens young adult romance. When she's not busy writing, Karen enjoys scouring estate sales for vintage books, cooking her grandmother's family recipes, reinventing her gardens to suit her moods and occasionally rescuing local wildlife from neighborhood cats. She lives in the Adirondack Mountain region with her husband, her very appreciated beta-reader daughter, and two Cavalier King cocker spaniels, who have yet to understand the concept of "fetch" though they know a lot about love.
