In Fort Charles, it's a tradition for two cowboys to share one woman. And now, innocent Rebecca Smith is about to learn just how naughty and decadent it feels to be the subject of two men’s desires.
Rebecca’s been locked up by ranch owner Carl Lawson for daring to question him...but an unspoken agreement between Carl and his right-hand man Jamie gives Becky her one chance to escape.
Will she risk the wrath of the two alpha male cowboys or submit to their plans for her future?

“Consequences,” he said, softly, at last. On his tongue it sounded even darker and more dire than in my own mind. “Becky...take off your clothes.”
I could feel my breath shuddering as I unbuttoned my blouse and peeled off my skirt.
“Everything,” he ordered, his voice like stone. “Then get back on your knees.”
I did as I was told, my skin prickling with goose bumps despite the heat. I could feel their eyes on me.
Carl slid a hand over my cheek, his touch somehow rough and tender at the same time.
“I’ll go easy on you,” he said at last. “Hell, most men wouldn’t have let you leave ‘em once before they’d claimed you properly.” His gaze connected with Jamie behind me, as if rebuking him.
“I thought I wouldn’t be like them, not with you. But it seems that a man’s got to make a claim to what belongs to him,” he said, slowly. “And a woman in your position has got to learn to take it.”
