Rough Riders #16
Carolyn is out riding Carson's horse when the bridle breaks and she gets thrown. The back of her head was cracked open and the doctors put her in a medically induced coma so she can heal. Carson says he will be the only one to visit with her during the 5 minutes per hour that is allowed. Their six kids are angry. But they don't seem to understand that Caro is his life. They have been married 50 years.
He talks to her for the five minutes every hour. He remembers and she remembers what happened during their dating and married life. Sometimes it is related to some family members stopping and talking to him in the waiting room. Does she wake up? Is she the same?
I really loved this one. I loved reading about the "older" generation of the McKays.
From the author:
Settle in for the hot McKay romance that started it all...
The moment Carson McKay saw the sexy blonde at the dance hall, he wanted to throw her over his saddle and gallop hell-bent toward the closest church. Given his reputation as a lover and a fighter—not necessarily in that order—it wasn’t surprising she gave him the cold shoulder. But he hadn’t expected the mean right hook when he tried to steal a kiss.
Carolyn West might look sweet and innocent, but she’s no fool. The good-looking cowboy with the heart-stopping smile didn’t really want to marry her; he just wanted to take her for a test ride. But when he kisses her a second time, she doesn’t fight her burning attraction to him…until she learns he’s one of the McKay cowboys she’s been warned about.
Carson doesn’t care about the long-standing feud between their families; he knows that Carolyn was meant to be his. And the more intimate they become, the more Carolyn sees the real man behind the wild cowboy reputation—a man who wants the same forever kind of love she does…and who will lead her into a love story that spans fifty years.
Warning: Crazy, hot, sexy and sweet—good girl meets bad-boy cowboy and they prove lust can last a lifetime.
