Boots and Babies
Horse trainer Stone Dempsey’s life is all about the ride—with horses and women.
He uses his equine talents to impress the country club set and earn
money for Smoky Mountain Reining Horses. When his drug-addicted
sister deposits her sick baby on his doorstep, he’s suddenly
saddled with real responsibility.
Dr. Emmersyn Cole’s goal
of starting a practice in her favorite place on earth is finally
coming to fruition and she is not going to be sidetracked. Everything
is going great until Stone swaggers into her life, half-dressed with
a smile that could melt her insides. She’s determined to keep her
distance…until he rushes into her grandfather’s home, clutching a
feverish baby, terrified and vulnerable, and her heart’s hard shell
begins to crack.
In only a few short weeks, Stone’s wayward
heart suddenly relies on two women—one who needs him—and one that
he might not be able to live without.
Pop coughed and covered his mouth, choking on the bite he’d been swallowing. When he finally cleared his throat, his eyes watery, she met his gaze with a pointed stare. The years of med-school, sleepless nights, and internship didn’t mean she hadn’t kept up with the sport she loved so much. Stone Dempsey was as well known in the world of quarter horses as Hollywood Dun It and had probably studded himself out just as many times.
After a silent moment, he grunted and wiped his mouth with his napkin. “I wasn’t too concerned with his personal life when I hired him. You were off living your life, my trainer retired, and I needed a new one.”
There was no reason she should be annoyed with her grandfather. Dempsey was a well-respected trainer. Then again, in a world where your name was your brand, though, he might not have been the wisest choice.
He cut her off before she could argue, tossing his fork with a clank onto the plate. “Emmy, don’t you Pop me. You’ve found your calling—you’re a damn fine doctor. I’ve seen what Stone can do. The stock he can produce will put this farm firmly into the black before I die.”
“Don’t be dramatic. You’re not dying.”
“But I ain’t getting no younger. Stone Dempsey is the best damn horse trainer I’ve ever seen. I don’t give two shits where he casts his fishing line.”
That had been that.
