Two weeks on a dude ranch can only be good for what ails you, right? Unless what ails you is grief and guilt severe enough to make you attempt suicide. Still, Blake Talbot agrees to accompany his Ivy League frat brothers on a trip out west to honor the memory of their beloved friend, Charlie. Blake hopes he can find a little peace of mind under the bright Montana skies. Instead, he finds Kris Killborn, who’s the exact opposite of peaceful in every possible way.

Kris has big plans, but at the moment he’s stuck in Montana’s Flathead Valley, spending the summer working as a hired hand on the Lazy C guest ranch while he dreams of making it big in Nashville. He sure as hell has no interest in getting all tangled up with some damaged college boy from back east.

On the surface, Blake and Kris have nothing in common…unless you count a sexual chemistry that’s downright combustible. Yet underneath all that they fit together like pieces of a puzzle. Will they be able to put aside their little differences long enough to get a good look at the big picture?

Reacquaint yourself with the folks at the Lazy C. Find out how volatile best-friends-turned-lovers Rafe and Jamie are faring, check in with Aunt Cindy, and see how Lilah Montclaire finally gets her happy ending…all within the pages of WILD HORSES, the latest installment of my “Big Sky Boys” series.

NEW EXCERPT:

“What about you?”

“Huh?”

Blake finished folding his shirt and dropped it on the chair next to the bed where all his other clothes were piled. When he spoke, Kris could hear that Mississippi drawl coming on strong. “I said, what about you? You’re still dressed.”

Kris shrugged. “You trust me?”

Blake blinked at him. Then he smirked. “I’m here, aren’t I?”

The sudden, thick tension between them felt like the drop in air pressure that came before a storm. Like maybe the bunkhouse was about to be at the center of a very localized bit of wild weather.

Kris crossed to Blake in three quick steps, leaving no more than a couple feet between them. “I think it’s time for you to shut that smart mouth, Biloxi.”

“Is that what you think?”

“Yep. Most definitely.” Kris didn’t give him a chance to come up with another helping of sass, but backed him up till Blake’s thighs hit the edge of the mattress of the double bed across from the bunks. “I’m gonna ask you one question, and you’re gonna answer it, yes or no.”

Blake looked him straight in the eye and nodded.

“You ever been with man like you’re about to be with me?” He leaned in, already pretty sure he knew which way the wind blew, but needing to hear it all the same. “You ever been fucked?”

He waited, patient and careful, as Blake’s throat worked around whatever he was about to say. It was a loaded subject for any man. Girls were allowed to be proud of their virginity. Men…not so much.

“No.” Blake squeezed shut his eyes, then opened them and gave Kris another straight look. “No, I haven’t.”

Kris nodded. “Good enough. We’ll go slow, and you’ll let me know if–“

“I already said I trusted you.”

“So you did. I’m just tryin’ to be…” Kris sighed and shook his head, at a loss to explain his all-of-a-sudden need to take special care without letting on how much he knew of Blake’s recent history.

“A gentleman?” Blake’s mouth twisted up in a smile.

“Don’t sound so surprised, boy.” He backed off a few feet and grabbed the hem of his shirt. “Now get your ass on that bed.”
