IT'S GONNA BE A WILD RIDE Ben
Noble needs to do some damage control. Fast. His heart has always been
in ranching, but there's no escaping the spotlight on his high-powered
political family. Now the only thing that can restore his reputation is a
getaway to the fresh air of Aspen, Colorado. Not to mention that the
trip gives Ben a second chance to impress a certain gorgeous mountain
guide. But Paige Harper is nothing like the shy girl he remembers . . .
she's so much more.
Paige is serious about Ben, too: seriously annoyed that the playboy cowboy is using her
mountain for his PR. Once upon a time, she fell for Ben's aw-shucks
charm, but the fairy tale didn't end happily. Paige doesn't intend to
let down her guard again. But keeping their relationship all business
and no pleasure may be harder than she thinks-especially if the
moonlight, the Rockies, and a certain irresistible rancher have anything
to say about it..

He stepped closer. Too close. “One date. Three hours. What are you afraid
“That’s a complicated
question,”she whispered because that was all she could manage. Her lungs
squeezed. She couldn’t
tell him the truth. She was afraid once he saw past everything, he wouldn’t like what he found.
Just like everyone else.
But he didn’t back off. He didn’t move away. He stared
at her until the world fell silent, until his gaze fell to her lips. She knew
he would kiss her before his lips pressed into hers. She knew, but she didn’t back away, either.
Her heart pounded so hard it ached and when his lips were finally on hers, she
kissed him back, letting her knees go weak, letting her herself sink into him,
And he knew where to take her. Holy shittles, he
knew. His strong hands caressed up her back and gentled into her hair. His
soft, warm lips pried hers open, shooting bursts of warmth down arms, her legs.
Something in her chest unlocked and she opened her mouth to him, let his tongue
stroke hers. And it was a good thing he was so solid and sure because she
be able to stand if she wasn’t leaning against him.
His lips moved over hers, slow and sensual, with
a reverence no one had ever offered her. And it was so different, the places he
was taking her, so open and giving, demanding nothing for himself. Her body
responded to his with a shuddering gasp that made her want to give him more,
everything. Chest heaving with a stifled breath, she glided her tongue along
his lower lip, then bit down on it lightly.
His low groan lured her hands to his chest. They
slid down, feeling the solid muscle under his shirt. Warm satisfaction filled
her body to the point of brimming over as a sensual desperation flickered in
his movements, making them faster, harder. His tongue mingled with hers,
loosening her control, only proving the theory that one kiss could lead to so
much more. He could give her more. So much more, judging from the way he seemed
to know exactly what she wanted…
