Blue Dawson has been in love with Maggie March for as long as he can remember. When her father is arrested and asks Blue to watch over her and the farm, he jumps at the opportunity. Maybe he can finally confess his feelings to her. The only way Maggie can save her father is to hire the best attorney, but her savings is depleted, and the farm is in trouble. She sees a chance in raising the funds, while keeping her father’s predicament a secret from the townsfolk of Dove Grey. However, she needs a dance partner. She thinks she has found the perfect match… Blue isn’t a dancer. He actually hates dancing, but he’s made a promise and now he’s stuck. When things start to heat up, on and off the dance floor, he’ll do just about anything to keep the music playing. How will he transition from protector to boyfriend material? Or will he always be in the friend zone? Maggie might have a few secrets that’ll turn Blue inside out, but nothing ever comes easy, especially not in Dove Grey.

Excerpt:


“Where the hell were you, Chan—” The words came to a halt when Blue saw her.


“Sorry. I’m not Channing,” she pushed out through tight lips, wishing she would have called first. She had a feeling her cheeks were apple-red because they were on fire.


“Mags…what are you doing here?” he stammered.


He looked like he’d been rung through the ringer…or tangled up in someone’s arms all night. His hat was missing and his hair was sticking out all over the place with thick whiskers on his jaw. His wrinkled chambray was half buttoned, exposing most of his smooth chest, and his faded jeans were creased. “I guess I should ask you the same question.” Anger started building in her.


“Listen, it’s not what you think—”


“Oh? What am I thinking, Blue, since you know me so well?”


“Mags, you brought the donation. Awesome,” came Brit’s sunshiny voice from behind him.


Maggie leaned sideways to look around Blue’s large frame. Her friend was tightening the sash on her itty-bitty satin robe. “Yeah, I brought the donation.”


“I forgot you were coming until I heard your voice.” Brit seemed oblivious to the cyclone building between Maggie and Blue.


But at some point she must have caught on because some of her smile slipped and she said, “I’m going to the kitchen to make coffee. Can I get you both a cup?”


“No,” they answered in unison.


“Okay then. See you later.” She retraced her steps.


“I’ll get out of your hair so you can go back to doing whatever you were doing.” Maggie knew her words reeked of animosity but she couldn’t control herself. The last thing she expected to see this morning was the very man she wanted to talk to at the home of Brit. Maggie didn’t own Blue, but she didn’t expect for him to be over what they’d shared so quickly.

Author Biography


Rhonda Lee Carver is a bestselling author of contemporary western and romantic suspense, but she loves to write other genres too. She's known for writing stories that keep readers laughing, crying, gripping the edge of their seats, and screaming all in one book...like riding a virtual roller coaster. Whether she's creating sexy cowboys or tough guys, or sassy, independent heroines, readers are sure to find strong, powerful, memorable characters that are relatable.


By day, she taps into her creative, fictional world but at some point she transitions back into reality where she's a volleyball-stands cheerleader, homework virtuoso (at least she thinks so), amateur nurse to skinned knees, mediocre chef with some awesome microwave skills, pet-guru (all the strays show up at her house), and a Jackie of all trades for her kids who are the loves of her life. Yoga and chocolate keep her sane. Hallmark movies require cuddling up with tissues because she can be emotional. She adds a sprinkle of her own real-life adventures in each story she spins because a little truth never hurt anyone. She wouldn't give up one thing in her crazy, chaotic, ever-amusing life, except, she might do magic tricks for the bungalow on the beach she's had her eye on (GOALS).


Writing for Rhonda is like falling in love and finding a new best friend over and over again. Her characters will find a place inside your heart too.
