The woman I loved married another man.
A cowboy. You gotta be kidding me.
I’m happy for Piper. At least I tell myself I am when I catch myself thinking about her. She’s long gone, but I’m still here, going through the motions of my life in Port Orchard.
Lucky for me, I have my own troubles keeping me busy. Competition is stiff and we’re facing some threats.
All of which, I can’t let stand.
But there’s a silver lining. There always is.
In the midst of dealing with all of the drama, I find myself drawn to the new girl at work.
She’s a bright ray of sunshine - but she’s off limits.
She’s my employee, nothing more. I don’t have time for romance, but her very presence draws me away from what’s appropriate and into lust like I’ve never felt before.
Guess love doesn’t give a rip about the right timing.
Good thing, ‘cause this woman is mine.
Rules be damned.
