Excerpt: Hometown Cowboy by Sara Richardson

HOMETOWN COWBOY by Sara Richardson is coming February 28th!


Jessa Mae Love is done with relationships. No matter how tempting he might be, she cannot–will not–fall for a man like Lance Cortez. The outrageously handsome cowboy is practically a living legend in Colorado, as famous for riding bulls as he is for breaking hearts. What would a big-time rodeo star like him see in a small-town veterinarian who wears glasses, rescues animals, and cries when watching rom-coms? Turns out, plenty.
Raising bulls, riding the circuit, and looking after his ailing father–Lance never stands still for long. Yet Jessa catches his attention, and the more she tries to resist him, the more he wants her. When she agrees to move to the ranch to keep an eye on Lance’s dad, Jessa tells him they have to keep it professional: no flirting, no sweet talk, and definitely no kissing. But with Jessa now living under his roof, that’s easier said than done . . .
Pre-order now:


Jessa wasnt sure if she was out of breath due to the terrible thong ordeal or to the fact that the elusive Lance Cortez looked so different up close. Shes seen him around town since shed been back, but shed never looked at him that closely. Hed never looked at her the way he was now, either. Eyes open slightly wider than a normal persons, lips parted like he couldnt remember what it was hed wanted to say.

Yes, well, neither could she. Not with the sight of his dark hair, which curled slightly at the edges. It was mussed like hed been nervously running his hand through it all morning. And those eyes. An arctic blue-gray. Cutting. He wore a dark red flannel shirt with the sleeves pushed up over his bulky forearms. His jeans were faded and worn like he worked hard, which shed heard he did.  

So…” His voice had this deep soothing reverberation that made her want to curl up against him. Did you fall or something?

Or something.I was in the kitchen making coffee,she informed him, trying to smooth her hair into soft waves like it had been before shed gone to battle with the couch. Wasnt expecting anyone to show up at my door…” Especially the enigma that was Lance Cortez. So I panicked and was trying to get back to my room without giving you a show.Which was clearly too much to ask from the universe.  

Oh.His gaze seemed to fixate on the leopard-print thong that lay a mere two feet from his boots.

As swiftly as possible, she swiped it off the floor and shoved it into the pocket of her robe. Um. Did you need something, Lance?Because her humiliation meter was about tapped out for the day and it wasnt even seven oclock.

Right. Yes.That intense gaze pierced her eyes. Dad spent the night out on the mountain and I need you to tell me how to find him.

The news shocked her into stillness. He spent the night out there?Luis hadnt said a word about camping when shed talked to him Wednesday night. Though he did camp occasionally, he usually told her his plans.

Im sure hes fine,he went on. His sleeping bag is gone, which means he planned on being out all night. But he didnt bring his meds.

Though she tried not to panic, her mind hopped on a runaway train car of worst-case scenarios. So many things couldve happened to himhe couldve taken a fall. He couldve gotten turned around. He couldve had a heart attack like her father
