THIS IS A SWEET HISTORICAL WESTERN ROMANCE NOVELLA, APPROXIMATELY 17,500 WORDS
When Trey Morgan wins half a saloon in a poker game, he heads back to Rocky Ridge, Colorado to sell his share and move on, back to the life he loves – no responsibilities, no ties. But he doesn't expect his partner to be Claire O'Doyle, a beautiful Irish redhead who captivates him like no other woman ever has.
Claire O'Doyle has no use for men like Trey. They remind her too much of the father who abandoned her and her mother. She'd love nothing more than to pay Trey off and get him out of her life. But someone is trying to run her out of Rocky Ridge, and she doesn't need the distraction of a man whose charm makes her forget her vow to stay away from gamblers.
As the threats escalate, so does Claire and Trey's attraction to each other. But will Trey walk away? And if he does, will Claire let him go?
