Kylie Richardson has always known she wanted a family. So much so that she waited years for her rodeo-riding boyfriend to make it big and settle down. Then she discovered that he was a lying cheatâso sheâs started a new life in a new town.
Kylie is shocked when Landon Kincaid, her exâs best friend, shows up in Blackfoot Falls. There was always an attraction between them, but neither of them ever acted on it. The spark is still there, but can she take a chance on another rising rodeo champ? Kylie doesnât want to come second to the rodeo again, so itâs up to Landon to prove that sheâs first in his heart.
The evening air was already nippy as Kylie hurried toward Main Street.
As she came around the corner, she saw Landon standing outside the restaurant. She slowed her steps even as her heart picked up speed.
She loved it when he wore blue shirts. They always made his eyes look bluer, and with his wavy dark hair, he truly was a good-looking man. A fact many of the other ridersâ wives and girlfriends had certainly noticed. Yet sheâd never seen him flirt. Not once.
âLandon, where are your crutches?â
âI thought we were going right in to dinner so I didnât need them.â
âAnd yet, here you are,â she said, shaking her head. âNot smart.â
âWe can fix that. Here, put your arm around my waist,â he said as he slid an arm around her shoulders and leaned against her slightly.
At first she couldnât speak. He smelled so good. Felt too good. The warmth of his body seeped into hers, beckoning her closer. He was all lean muscle. Rock solid.
âIs the leg bothering you?â she asked, tightening her arm around him.
Suspicious, she looked up at him. âSo why are we plastered to each other?â
Well, I must say, it feels good to be home. While this is my first Western Romance, my very first published book was with Harlequin American Romance somewhere back in the early nineties. At the time, all I read were Americans, so when I decided to try my hand at crafting a story, of course I submitted to that particular line. Oh, and by the way, writing a short book? Not as easy as Iâd thought it would be. Wow, what a humbling experience!
Anyway, I wrote for American for quite a long time, with the occasional Love & Laughter, Duets or Intrigue thrown in. Then I switched to Blaze and wrote for that line for over fifteen years. When I was told I could bring my Made in Montana series with me to Western Romance, I was delighted to come full circle.
Stealing the Cowboyâs Heart takes place in the fictional town of Blackfoot Falls, Montana. Itâs the eighteenth book in the series, but Iâve peppered in some of the more interesting characters as a means of introducing you to the town and its sometimes wacky, sometimes annoying townspeople, who might like to gossip a bit more than most.
I hope you enjoy Kylie and Landonâs story. We all welcome you to Blackfoot Falls!
All my best,
Stealing the Cowboyâs Heart
DEBBI RAWLINS grew up on the island of Oahu in Hawaii but always loved Western movies and books. When she was twelve she spent the summer on the Big Island of Hawaii, and had the dubious honor of being thrown off her first horse. A year later, minutes before a parade started down her street, she managed to find the most skittish horse in the lineup and... You can probably guess the rest.
These days, sixty-five-plus books later, she lives on four acres in gorgeous rural Utah surrounded by dogs, cats, goats, chickens and free-range cattle, who just love taking down her fence every couple years.
This is for Megan and KathleenâI bet you two were cheerleaders in high school. Am I right?
Thank you for all your patience and support, and for helping me make the transition to Western. Youâre both terrific!
âDonât get me wrong, itâs a cute dress. Just kinda conservative.â
Kylie Richardson glanced down at the simple blue sheath and sighed. She almost always wore jeans. She liked jeans. They were comfortable, casual, easy. Dresses always made her think of Easter and holding her stomach in. Why on earth had she agreed to go on this date? Just the thought of it made her palms clammy.
âIf I were you, Iâd be showing off those curves,â her friend Mallory said before taking a bite of her apple fritter.
âWell, thatâs a nice way of putting it,â Kylie said with a laugh that ended in a groan. Since moving to Blackfoot Falls, Montana, and opening The Cake Whisperer thirteen months ago, sheâd gained six pounds. Obviously from enjoying too many of her own cupcakes.
