Hi, Jacquie – thanks so much for sharing my new release, Cowboy in Charge, here today!
Readers, I hope you enjoy this peek into the story. Feel free to leave a comment and question.
In this clip, my loner cowboy has returned to his hometown and found he’s in much more trouble than he ever anticipated…
Excerpt from Cowboy in Charge
The baby’s screech rose a notch. Jason would have sworn his eardrums rattled.
“She’s hungry. I’ll have to feed her here,” Layne announced. She opened the passenger door and returned to the backseat.
Though he tried to ease his stranglehold on the steering wheel, he could think of nothing else to do with his hands. Or of anywhere else to direct his gaze. With the truck in Park in the middle of the L-G’s lot, he couldn’t pretend a need to keep his eyes on the road.
“Could you get me a cloth from the diaper bag?” Layne asked.
He began to reach across the front seat, forgetting for a moment that he was strapped in place. He thumbed open the clasp of his seat belt and grabbed the bag. A second later, he reached back over the bench seat and held out the cloth to Layne.
“Thanks,” she said. “Sorry about this.”
Not as sorry as he was.
In the past few days, every time she’d fed the baby, he had found a reason to move away—checking something on the stove, helping Scott with his motorway, flipping through the television channels at lightning speed.
He wasn’t a man given to analyzing his emotions, but it had been obvious those previous incidents involved physical responses to the thought of seeing Layne half-undressed. Now…
Now his reactions came from somewhere deeper, from something more, from knowing he couldn’t look at the woman he’d once loved and watch her nurse a baby that wasn’t his. And that was nobody’s fault but his, because he could have watched her with his own child.
But he had walked away from the chance.
