But when trouble from both their pasts comes calling, Harlow and Hugh have no one else to lean on. In the beginning she’d attributed all those characteristics and nothing more to him. And then she’d experienced his coldness and disdain. Harlow Pratt panicked when she saw her sister Tierney’s name on her caller ID. “Give me the nurse’s name and extension number.”Tierney rattled off more info than necessary, but that was her way.“Got it. I imagine Renner is fit to be tied.” Tierney’s husband’s behavior defined tyrannical since Tierney had been prescribed bed rest for the last month of her pregnancy.
Can they trust one another enough to make it through the hard times together… Lorelei James is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of contemporary erotic romances set in the modern-day Wild West, including her Blacktop Cowboys® Novels. Her books have won the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award, as well as the CAPA Award. But then she’d unearthed the real man beneath the stoic demeanor. The beginning she’d envisioned for them turned out to be the end. She answered with, “Please tell me you didn’t go into labor a month early.”“No, that’s not why I’m calling.” Tierney paused. Sometimes she needed a reminder that she had to limit her activity.“You have no idea,” Tierney whispered.
“As soon as I have my flight info, you can call Renner’s foreman and let him know I’m on my way, so there’s no need for him to stick around.” Did that sound harsh? She could not deal with her father and Hugh Pritchett both on the same damn day.“I know we’ve both had issues with Dad, but he was really scared,” Tierney said. But Dad and I have reached a place where he can live with my life choices.”“I’m not holding my breath that’ll ever happen with me.”“Your passion for what you do, Harlow—he doesn’t discount it, even when he doesn’t understand it,” Tierney assured her. When her passion for service trapped her in a nightmare situation last year, he’d done everything in his power to get her out of it. She followed Tierney up the river-rock-paved sidewalk and checked out the landscaping. “The bedroom and bathroom are through there.”“This place is perfect, T.” She hugged her sister from behind. Her relationship with their father had been much different—although not better by any stretch.
She did owe him for that.“Leaving at a moment’s notice won’t be an issue? Very minimalist—but not due to Tierney’s black thumb. Since she had experience utilizing native flora and fauna on some of the projects she’d worked on, she approved the resort’s choice to incorporate native plants, grasses and rock. “Thank you for letting me stay here, but you didn’t have to leave the furniture. I doubt that glass coffee table could withstand a toddler smacking toys onto it.”“True.”“Lots of happy memories in this house,” Tierney said softly.“No wild parties to taint those memories, I promise.”“I’ll never forget the look on Dad’s face when he walked in on you and ten of your friends from the homeless shelter doing karaoke.”“He’s never had much of a sense of humor, has he? Gene Pratt hadn’t had the same expectations for Harlow that he had for his brainiac daughter, Tierney.“After all the shit Dad pulled when the resort was getting off the ground, Renner has every reason not to want to have anything to do with him.
Lorelei lives in western South Dakota with her family…and a whole closetful of cowgirl boots. He remained so still he could’ve been a bronze statue. So she drove away, ready to put him—and Wyoming—in her rearview mirror. “He made Hugh drive Dad and meet the ambulance halfway to town because he refused to leave me alone with Isabelle.
Prologue She resisted the urge to leave at the crack of dawn the morning after. She hugged her sister and said good-bye to the friends she’d made these past four months. He worried the stress would put me into labor the second he wasn’t around.”“It’s a valid concern.” Harlow ignored the way her stomach jumped at the mere mention of the man’s name.“Where are you? ”“Don’t you want to see where you’ll be working first? I drove straight through, so I’m seriously close to going comatose.”Tierney’s gaze sharpened. ”“Just for gas and more energy drinks.” Harlow squeezed Tierney’s hand and felt her anxiety lessening a little.“Good thing I didn’t plan a big ‘Welcome to Wyoming’ meal for you later tonight.”“Very lucky for me, since you’re a horrible cook.”“I’m better than I used to be.”Harlow raised both eyebrows.“Okay, fine, Renner does most of the cooking.”“Where is my handsome brother-in-law?When they’re forced together at the Split Rock Ranch and Resort, everything changes. We got him to the hospital in Rawlins right away and they opted to have him flown to the cardiac unit at Denver General.”“Is he all right?They might be polar opposites, but working out their differences skin to skin, in the dark, seems to help their incompatibility a lot. ”“He’s having emergency heart bypass surgery now.”In shock, Harlow lowered herself into the closest chair. ”“There’s a nurse who’s keeping me updated because I can’t travel this late in my pregnancy—”“Don’t feel guilty, T.” Harlow grabbed a pen and a notepad from the nightstand.Game room, sun room & master have access to gorgeous lagoon heated pool with waterfall and sundeck, hot tub and outdoor fireplace.
