Old wounds run deep

Only the truth can heal them…

Rancher Cole Loveland has no interest in dredging up the past, but his ex-fiancée, Katlynn Brennon, has other plans. To save her struggling TV show, she’s come back to Colorado to investigate the infamous Cade-Loveland feud. Trusting Katlynn again isn’t easy—she’s already chosen her career over Cole once. But he’s beginning to realize that true love, like legends, never dies.

“Would you call me a ‘bad boy’?”
“Let’s see.” Katlynn tapped her chin, breathing in the cool mountain air, fresh balsam and columbine. “You’re stubborn. Fiercely independent. Thick-headed. A loner. Extremely protective of those you love.” She paused and touched the black and blue ring around his eye. “Does that hurt?”
“Only when you touch it.”
Cole’s wry tone conjured a smile from her. “And you’re sarcastic.”
“Verdict is…”
“What’s that mean?”
Goosebumps rose on her arms at his intense expression, an intense mixture of hope and longing that pierced her straight through. “Trouble for me. Cole, I don’t want to care about you.”
“Don’t want to,” he said slowly, rubbing his jaw. “which means… you do care?” His eyes lit up.
“I can’t do anything about it, but, yes.”
His grin was sudden and enormous and did funny things to her heart… like turning it into a somersaulting gymnast. “Same.”
She biffed his shoulder. “Now that’s romantic.”
“Hey.” Cole rubbed his shoulder, mock-offended. “You’re the one who called me trouble. Is that how you speak to people you care about… huh?”
“How should I speak to you?” Her breath caught when his grin faded, and his gaze swerved to her lips.
“I prefer actions to words…” He leaned down and brushed her mouth with a heady, pulse-jumping kiss.
Katlynn pressed a hand to his chest, halting him, pulling back. A soul-deep cry hollered “No!” She ducked her head to avoid looking at him. “Let’s figure out Maggie and Everett’s romance first.”
“And then?” Vulnerability shaded his deep blue eyes and tightened the corners of his mouth.
“We’ll see where we stand.”
