How about an Excerpt?
Cameron had been a randy youth of twenty-five when he left the ranch to go backpacking around the world. His tour began by hiking across
to the east coast, stopping whenever and wherever the mood struck. From Canada , he’d flown
across the Halifax Atlantic to , and it
was there he’d met the love of his life, although he hadn’t known it at the
Lacey Kerrigan was a beauty! All luscious curves and a fiery redhead to boot. She’d been nineteen and on vacation with her family. He’d literally bumped into her while at
to witness the Changing of the Guard. From then on, they were virtually
inseparable. He and Lacey had managed to sneak away privately several times for
lusty moments of true bliss. Buckingham Palace
Their tryst ended two weeks later when her family returned home to
without any warning. They hadn’t exchanged addresses, phone numbers, nothing.
He’d been devastated, but in the way of youth, he pulled up stakes and
continued his tour. Ireland
Oh, to be young again! To go on his way with not a care in the world. No regrets. No responsibilities.
Except he couldn’t escape the memory of her. Lacey’s lovely features had remained with him throughout the years since, haunting the hours whether awake or asleep. He’d never found anyone to take her place, and he’d finally come to realize that no one could.
So he’d left last spring after the branding of new stock was finished, determined to find her. If he’d known she owned and operated her own business, that search would’ve been a lot easier. He could’ve Googled her name and gotten all the details, but he hadn’t even thought of that. No, he’d just gone off and located her the hard way.
Did she appreciate it? Not hardly.
She hadn’t given an inch in all the time he’d been there, determined to stay independent, no matter how hard he’d tried to resume their relationship.
Would she accept his invitation? Or was he doomed to be disappointed again?
