Doesn’t he get that she’s blind?

Barrel racer Amberley James wants to join the premier rodeo circuit more than anything, but she faces the ultimate hurdle when she loses her eyesight to a rare genetic condition. All she’d ever wanted seems out of reach. Giving up is the only option…until her best friend and local hero Jared Cade steps in. The last thing she wants is Jared’s help. But his persistence at encouraging her to get back in the saddle is ridiculously annoying. And undeniably inspiring…


“Amberley.” Jared breathed her name like an invocation, barely breaking their kiss.
“Hmm?” She threaded her fingers his crisp hair, unable to open her eyes.
His lips slid across her jaw, nibbling her earlobe. “You’re beautiful, babe.”
He called all of his girls babe. Especially when he couldn’t remember their names.
Tension locked up every inch of her. She propped an eye open. Then the other. Despite her 
lack of vision, she could see this disastrous moment clearly. In minutes, he’d gone from 
treating her like a child to seducing her like one of his flings. And she was neither.
She leaned away. “Jared!” Sparks continued exploding along the skin his mouth explored. 
She pushed against his hard chest. “Stop.”
He lifted his head slowly and gazed down at her. For the first time, she felt glad she couldn’t 
read his expression. His hold loosened and she wiggled back until her spine bumped against 
the stall’s wooden slats. Her chest expanded, drawing in a shaky breath.
“Why did you do that?” she demanded.
“I wanted to—to—” He faltered, suddenly uncertain, his usual brash confidence gone. 
“Comfort you,” he finished quickly.
“Comfort me?” she echoed, not sure if she’d heard him right.
“You were crying and I felt…”
“Sorry for me?” She pushed to her feet on trembling limbs, her entire body aflame. Her 
spine pulled tight as a rope. “You kissed me out of pity?”
He stood, too, and his hands waved. “No.”
“What, then? So, you don’t feel sorry for me?”
“I do, it’s just—”
“Just what?” she demanded.
“You kissed me back.”
She pressed her lips together, her blood throbbing in her veins. “That was a mistake.”
“You didn’t like it?”
“That doesn’t matter.”
He closed the distance between them. One finger skated down her cheek. “Doesn’t it?”
“Get out.” She pointed toward the sunlight glinting over Harley’s head. “Now.”
“But I—”
“Everything alright in here?”
She ducked her head at Maverick’s voice and turned, wiping her eyes on her sleeve. “Jared 
was just leaving,” she said without turning.
“Glad to show him the way,” Maverick drawled, a hint of menace entering his voice.
“No need.” The ache in Jared’s voice made her heart clench as tight as a fist. “Bye, Amberley.”
She didn’t release her breath until she heard the stall door click closed behind him.
“You sure you’re alright?” asked Maverick, his deep voice now full of concern.
“I’ll be fine.”
When the world fell silent again, she buried her face in Harley’s soft mane, not fine at all. 
How could she have kissed her best friend?

November 7th 2017 by Harlequin Heartwarming

The Christmas they never had.

James Cade has one priority: keep the family ranch running smoothly in the wake of his younger brother's death. With Jesse's ex, Sofia Gallardo, and her young son, Javi, stranded at Cade Ranch over Christmas, this task just got a lot harder. The longer Sofia and Javi stay, the harder it is to imagine the ranch without them. James couldn't save his brother from his inner demons, but he can give his nephew a secure future. Maybe more—if he can figure out how to trust Sofia, and stop feeling like he's betraying Jesse. Because trying to stop thinking about beautiful, determined Sofia is impossible.
