(Alpha Male Master Series: Book Four)
A dominant cowboy with mesmerizing eyes and a six pack she could wash her clothes on is a dream come true…or is he?
A steamy love story laced with danger and suspense.
Brandy Coleman’s face is flaming red. As the owner of a barn for retired horses she’s had her share of mishaps, but nothing can compare to this deeply embarrassing moment. She is looking up at a stranger who has the dreamiest hazel eyes she’s ever seen, and a six pack beneath his open shirt that is making her knees weak. The problem? Her hose burst and squirted water everywhere, leaving her hair a tangled mess and her clothes absolutely drenched.
Logan Scott has arrived at Rainbow’s End Ranch to apply for a job as a ranch hand. He is led into the barn by an exuberant Golden Retriever where he is met by a stunning sight. A gorgeous girl, dripping wet, is bent over wrapping a towel around her head. As she straightens up he can’t help but notice the thin pink T-shirt clinging to her luscious curves.
The sparks fly, Brandy hires him, but as the days pass a threat looms over the ranch…and Brandy herself.
A known thug wants her property and won’t take no for an answer. Logan declares he’s changing his job description from ranch hand to bodyguard, and to keep her safe, Brandy will have to do as he says. Will she…?

With her long dark hair in a tangled mess and her clothes saturated, she was in no fit state to be greeting anyone, and the barn was an absolute shambles. In addition to the watery mess, none of the stalls had been cleaned, there were bags of feed waiting to be carried into the feed room, and the barn aisle hadn’t been swept in days. Hurrying into the tack room she opened up the storage cupboard in search of a clean towel, but pulling one out she knocked over a tub of soap powder. As it hit the floor the powder spilled out, and utterly exasperated she threw up her hands.
“To hell with it. I’ll just add it to the list of all the other crap that needs to be done around here. Damn you, Josh, you lying thieving snake!”
Deciding to wrap up her dripping hair she bent over to let her long locks fall forward, but just as she placed the towel around her head Lola returned, and trotting over began to vigorously lick her face.
“Dammit dog, get away.”
“Excuse me, are you Brandy Coleman?”
The male voice was deep and carried a slight western twang. It was a voice with which she was not familiar, and deeply embarrassed she raised her eyes completely unprepared for the gorgeous man that greeted her gaze. She didn’t even consider why he was there. All she could focus on were his dreamy hazelnut eyes and defined six-pack clearly visible beneath his unbuttoned white shirt.
“If this is a bad time I can come back. There was no-one up at the house, and the dog, well, she sort of led me over here.”
“Uh, no, it’s fine. Please excuse the state I’m in,” she stammered, hating that her face was flaming red. “I, uh, had a fight with a hose.”
“Looks like the hose won,” he said with a ridiculously wicked grin that suggested he was wishing he’d witnessed the scene.
“Yeah, I guess it did.”
As she tightened the towel around her head she glanced down at her clothes, and to her chagrin her baby pink t-shirt was unashamedly clinging to her like second skin.
“My apologies,” he continued. “I didn’t introduce myself. I’m Logan Scott.”
“Hi, and yes, I’m Brandy Coleman,” she said, wishing she’d wrapped the towel around her body rather than her head. “Do you have a horse you want to retire? Is that why you’re here?”
“Actually, Max at the hardware store said you might be in need of a helpin’ hand, and from the looks of things he was right.”
“I sure am. I had to let someone go with no notice about a week ago. That’s why I had the fight with the hose. He was supposed to get a new one, and I haven’t had a chance to do it. Damn thing exploded on me.”
“Would you prefer I come back later. Looks like you need to—”
“No, no,” she said cutting him off. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt. Why don’t you wander around the place and meet me at the house in about fifteen minutes? I’m so wet I can’t think straight.”
She suddenly realized what she’d said. He didn’t blink. He was either ignoring the inadvertent sexual innuendo or hadn’t picked up on it. Either way she still wanted the ground to swallow her up.
