He paddled them toward calmer waters so he could collect himself, afraid if he didn’t, he’d lose control of the boat. Considering these were Class II+ rapids, intended for novices, he’d never hear the end of it.
“Those were pretty big, huh?”
“Not bad. There are more up ahead. Let me know when you’re ready.” He’d never gotten so much pleasure from another person’s enjoyment. It made him yearn for more. To watch her light up like that . . . well, it was everything.
“Okay.” She stuck her hand in to feel the water. “It’s cold.”
“It’s worse in winter. You ever go out in the lake?”
She shook her head. “We were going to get a boat but . . .”
Not for the first time, Colt wondered about Robert. What kind of guy let another man make a pass at his wife? He wanted to ask why they’d broken up but he didn’t know her well enough to get that personal. Besides, it didn’t pay to become too involved. She was here to restart her company. As soon as that happened, she’d leave.
The Garner brothers are poster boys for the ski resort town of Glory Junction, California. But as much as they love outdoor thrills, they know how to create indoor thrills, too . . .
Colt Garner thrives on adrenaline. As Glory Junction’s police chief and the co-owner of Garner Adventure, he knows where to find danger and excitement. Unfortunately his new neighbor, fussy, transplanted city girl Delaney Scott, is anything but a thrill, even if she is as gorgeously curved as a killer ski slope. They have nothing in common but a shared driveway they’re arguing over . . . and a mutual attraction neither of them can fight.
Starting over was not in designer Delaney’s plans. But now that her rotten ex has walked away with the rights to her brand, she needs to reinvent herself, and fast. It’s not easy with bold, brash Colt next door, too handsome for his own good, and, she’s sure, too unreliable for hers. But as small town life throws them together again and again, Colt and Delaney find that simple romance may be the most exhilarating gamble of all . . .
“Well paced, well-written, a romantic delight!”
