Chad McCray has resisted a relationship for thirty-two years. Can the girl next store change his mind?
Catie Bay has worshiped much older Chad McCray since she was a child. When she fumbles a seduction attempt after her graduation from high school, she flees to Europe. Four years later, she returns a beautiful, worldly woman, and Chad takes notice. Is the rodeo queen still in love with the sexy cowboy, and is he capable of returning her feelings?
“You’re all jet lagged, sugar. You’d best get home and get to bed. No more ’ritas for you until you’ve had a decent night’s sleep and a decent meal.”
“Now you sound just like Harper,” Catie said. “I happen to be twenty-one, for your information. I’m certainly capable of taking care of myself.”
“Twenty-one.” Chad chuckled. Twenty-one had been so long ago.
“You’re just a baby. Let’s get you back inside, and Harper can take you home.”
“I am not a baby, Chad McCray.” She stomped her foot adamantly, barely missing Chad’s boot clad toe. “I haven’t been a baby for a very long time. You just never took notice.”
“Well, you haven’t exactly been around for me to take notice,” Chad said, then wondered why he was engaging in this infantile conversation. What the heck did he care?
“Come with me, sugar.”
“I will not.”
“Oh yes, you will.” He grabbed her arm, shocked at the tingles he felt when he touched her.
She jerked her arm away. “I’m not a baby, you stupid cowboy, and I’ll prove it.”
She clamped her arms around his neck and pulled his face to hers. Her lips claimed his in a forceful, open-mouthed kiss. Lime again, and raspberries. Sweet, soft lips. Chad couldn’t help himself. His tongue met hers and tangled, devouring the hidden treasures of her mouth.
He nibbled at her lips and her tongue, and then moved to her cheek, raining tender kisses along her jaw line, up to her ear. “God, you taste good, sugar,” he whispered.
Her sigh was sweet as spring rain against his neck. “Kiss me again, Chad. Please.”
She didn’t have to ask twice. He crushed his mouth to hers again and drank of her intoxicating sweetness. Where did she learn how to kiss like a little siren? Her tongue inched along his lips, his teeth. When she sucked the point of his tongue into her mouth, his groin tightened and pulsed inside his denims. He grabbed her and rubbed his arousal against her. That body. That luscious, tempting body.
But this was Catie Bay.
Little Catie Bay.
What the hell was he doing?
He broke the suction of the kiss with a loud smack.
