The Cowboy's Forever Family
HIS BEST FRIEND'S BABY
Widowed and pregnant, Laney Beckett wants nothing to do with stubborn rodeo cowboy Slade McKenna. But avoiding her late husband's best friend is nearly impossible now that Slade thinks Laney and her baby need his protection.
Though Slade figures he's too rough a man to settle down, his thrill-seeking ways have already cost him his childhood pal. Looking out for the man's wife and child is the least he can do, especially when headstrong Laney doesn't know the first thing about running the family's ranch. For the sake of baby Beckett, Laney and Slade give friendship a chance...but could they become a true family?
Though some people are hard to love, all have the dignity given to them by God and many times are hurting, even if they come off harsh. Sometimes we need to look past the obvious to see the heart within.
Why the author wrote this book:
Slade and Laney start off more antagonist than my typical characters. I wanted to explore what would happen to put two explosive, strong characters together.
