RITA Award winner in the novella category, July 2014!
When Jenny Wright's fiancé leaves her standing at the altar in a Vera Wang bridal gown she can't afford, she's humiliated and heartbroken. To have Marietta hero bull-riding champ Colton Thorpe witness her shame makes the rejection even more devastating.
Jenny and Colton grew up in the same rough neighborhood, and they both left home right after school to pursue big dreams. Now they're both back, with Colton as the celebrity chair for the seventy-fifth Copper Mountain Rodeo and Jenny in disgrace. Sexy, rugged Colton didn't get to be a national champion by chance. He's a man who takes risks and goes after what he wants. During the rodeo weekend, Colton makes it clear he wants Jenny.
Flustered but flattered, Jenny finds it difficult to resist his charm. But what happens when the rodeo ends, and Colton leaves town? Will she dare to dream again?
