He's looking for love. She's looking for trouble...
As a successful doctor and weekend cowboy, Chase Cooper enjoys a full life with plenty of female company. But lately, something hasn't felt right. He's been distracted. Antsy. Damn it, he's been lonely. With an eye on settling down with a nice girl, Coop invites his high school best friend down to his ranch to see if maybe she's the one for him...
Instead, her twin sister shows up. The one who loathes him.
Julia Blair is already halfway to Coop's ranch when she learns the invitation wasn't for her, but her vivacious twin sister. She has two choices: slink back home, or see just how far this farce will go. One glance at hotter-than-sin Coop, and she knows she's playing a dangerously hot game. Because what this cowboy wants, this cowboy gets...
Wasn't this the perfect opportunity to live a day in her sister's life? Was she really going to pass that up?
She took a good long minute to mull that over. Okay, so Julia might not have been the one Coop had been expecting to get off that plane, but maybe this wasn't about him anymore. Maybe this moment was about her and what she wanted.
With that last thought urging her on, Julia climbed from the pond, quickly towel-dried her body, and pulled on a borrowed pair of denim shorts and a pretty pink T-shirt that was a little too snug around her breasts. Once dressed, she followed the path Coop had taken and soon found him alone inside the barn, the warm morning light drifting in through the open doors and falling over his hard body.READ MORE
With his back to her, she watched him for a moment, watched the way he quietly talked to his horse, the way he stroked the gelding with care. While Coop might be tough and rugged on the outside, there was a reflective side of him, a side that was both sweet and caring. A side that made him so easy to be with. And it was that side that drew her in and had her aching to place herself in his hands.
Okay, so she couldn't deny that she wanted to indulge in him physically, wanted to step out of her comfort zone and throw caution to the wind. Just once.
"Coop," she said, trying not to sound breathless as she imagined those capable hands of his on her body, taking her to places she'd never before been.
He spun around to face her, and when his glance met hers, he raked shaky hands through his hair. "Julia," he began. "Jesus, I'm sorry. I misread—"
She took a deep breath and blurted out, "You're not the one at fault here."
He cast his eyes downward. "I made a mistake—"
"No, you didn't. I did."
His gaze flew back to hers, and he drove his hands deep into his pockets. She tried not to react when the hard muscles along his arms flexed and relaxed again. "What are you talking about? I shouldn't have—"
"Yes, you should have."
He gave a slow shake of his head. "I don't understand."
Julia drew a centering breath, and while she couldn't pretend to be her sister, it didn't mean that she couldn't act like her and get what she wanted from Coop, what she always wanted. She went up on her toes, and said, "The answer is yes, Coop."
She watched his throat work as he swallowed. "Yes?"
"Yes, I would like some company." She stepped into him, and when she aligned her body with his, positioning her pussy against his cock, he slid his arm around her waist, tugging her against him.
His gaze moved over her face, assessing her, and she could feel the heat in his body as well as the hardness between his legs. It excited her. It aroused her. It made her feel bold and adventurous.
His blue eyes darkened. "Are you sure, Julia? Are you sure you know what you're doing?"COLLAPSE
