He’s not the only one who needs saving…

But maybe they can save each other?

Dark, brooding, dangerous…and possibly suicidal. Renegade rancher Justin Cade was exactly the kind of man former army chaplain Brielle Thompson needed to avoid after escaping the horrors of Afghanistan with an honorable discharge—and PTSD. The whole point of moving to the remote Rocky Mountains of Colorado was to leave the darkness behind, not fall back into it. But falling she is…


“You don’t want to lose anyone else.”
This close, Brielle could smell Justin’s minty, warm breath. “No,” she admitted.
“Then get to know them. Come to my ranching workshop tomorrow.”
“I don’t know if I can,” she confessed. “It’s not easy for me…like it is for you.”
His short laugh rushed across her cheek. Their eyelashes tangled. “You think it’s easy for me? I hate talking to people.”
“What about me?”
His eyes blazed into hers. “You’re different.”
“How?” she breathed.
“Don’t know. You just are. You get me to say things.”
She stared into his gorgeous eyes, and she touched his beard. It was softer than she expected, almost silky. “Like?”
His eyes closed, and a low groan drifted from his throat. “Things I don’t want to say.”
“You never told me when you started drinking so much.”
His lids lifted, and he flattened her palm against his chest. Through the leather of his jacket, she felt the faint beat of his heart. “I’ll tell you if you promise to come to my workshop.”
“I will if you’ll consider attending Craig’s group therapy session.”
He whistled. “You don’t let up, do you?”
“It’s part of my charm,” she teased, lobbing his earlier words back at him.
He laughed. “Guess we’re a regular pair of charmers then.” He fell silent and then— “I drove straight from Jesse’s funeral to the liquor store,” he said, his voice breaking slightly. “Bought a twelve-pack of beer. Finished it that night. Went back the next morning and bought another. Haven’t missed a day since.”
“How are you managing now?”
“Not sleeping much.”
“If you’d see Dr. Fulton, he could prescribe something to help.”
“I don’t need help.”
“What do you need?” she challenged, slightly breathless at his intense perusal. Oh… she should have known not to go into the forest with the big bad wolf…
“This.” He leaned closer. Then, as light as a butterfly’s wing, as imagined as fairy dust, his lips brushed hers. The brief contact drugged her senses, sapping her strength so that she melted into him, ready for more.
A twig snapped, loud as a gunshot, and they broke apart. Justin swept a protective arm around her as she scrambled to her knees. From the tree cover, an enormous creature emerged. Dark, tall and majestic.
“Moose,” she breathed in Justin’s ear.
“And baby,” he murmured as a calf peeked from the brush then trailed after its mother.
The pair gamboled into the grassy area then froze when the wind blew Brielle’s hair forward, carrying her scent. In a flash, the pair turned and bounded back into the murky forest.
“That was—” Brielle began then ran out of words, the wonder of the moment beyond her ability to capture.
Justin’s eyes searched hers. “A miracle.”
Yes, it was, she thought as they trekked back to the parking lot. As beautiful as the moon in the night’s sky had been, as wondrous as a sighting of the large animal and her child, divine intervention had stopped their near kiss. She needed to be more careful around Justin than ever.
Next time, she might not be so lucky.

The Christmas they never had.

James Cade has one priority: keep the family ranch running smoothly in the wake of his younger brother's death. With Jesse's ex, Sofia Gallardo, and her young son, Javi, stranded at Cade Ranch over Christmas, this task just got a lot harder. The longer Sofia and Javi stay, the harder it is to imagine the ranch without them. James couldn't save his brother from his inner demons, but he can give his nephew a secure future.
