She’s on the run from her violent ex-husband with her thirteen year old daughter, Alice. They end up heading to Sanctuary, Montana hoping that her ex won’t be able to find them. With money tight and feeling uncertain about the future, Sophie turns to the only person in town she knows and trusts… her cousin.
Mason and Alex McLean come from a wealthy family.
When Mason spots Sophie and Alice at the grocery store in town his protective instincts surface. There is just something about the sad woman that calls to him. Becoming her hero is easy, Mason does everything is his power to turn her frown into a smile, even offering her a job at his ranch.
Will Sophie be able to let go of the pain from her past? Will she ever be able to trust and love again or will her ex-husband run her out of another town.
Country music blared from the speakers and she looked around, hoping to spot Alex and Mason. When she saw them, her heart skipped a beat. They were both so amazingly good-looking in their cowboy garb. Feeling ill, Sophie twisted her hands in her lap, trying to stay calm, but it was next to impossible. Alice reached over and held her hand, giving her a comforting pat.
Alex’s name was called over the loudspeaker, and she knew any minute now that he would be in the center of the ring. A loud buzzer rang, and she held her breath as a metal gate slammed open. She wanted to close her eyes, but she didn’t. Sophie wanted to be supportive of Alex, even if he chose to ride bulls. Scoffing, she said a quick prayer as the bull charged out of the small pen. Her eyes widened as his body was thrashed around. He looked like a bobble head. That was the only comparison she could come up with.
He flew off the bull before the eight second buzzer rang out. Good, Lord, that was the longest eight seconds of my life. He jumped up immediately and waved, proving that he wasn’t injured. Sophie waved back, her hand still shaking. Relief swept through her, and it felt as if a thirty pound weight lifted from her shoulders. Standing, Sophie awkwardly made it down the stairs and over to where Alex and Mason were, Alice trailing behind her. She waited for them to come out of the arena.
“I’m whole and healthy, sweetheart.” Alex grinned, pulling her close for a hug.
Sophie closed her eyes. If anything had happened… She stopped that thought. Alex wasn’t an irresponsible man. He was an experienced bull rider, but even that couldn’t necessarily prevent an injury. She heard one man had already been sent to the hospital, proving this was a very dangerous sport.
“Alex, I don’t think I can watch you do that ever again.” She shook her head. “I don’t have the right to tell you to stop, but I felt so sick sitting up there.”
“You did great. Do you think you won?” Alice asked, looking up at Alex as if he were some sort of hero.
“I’m not sure.” He shrugged as if it didn’t matter, before giving Sophie his attention.
“I won’t take any unnecessary risks. If it makes you feel better, then I won’t get back on a bull. It’s a young man’s game, anyway.” Alex smiled and kissed her forehead.
“You’re young and you wore all the safety gear,” she defended. The last thing she wanted was for Alex to stop doing something he loved.
“That’s true, but I don’t want my woman to be sick with worry, and I don’t want to ride if you aren’t cheering me on. Besides, I don’t want my luck wearing off,” Alex explained and Alice giggled. Sophie assumed it was probably because Alex had just claimed her as his. She didn’t correct him or try to explain to Alice. It felt good when he called her his woman.
“Your luck won’t wear off, and I’ll always cheer you on. I’ll be fine. My heart can take it.”
“Only if you’re sure.”
“I am.” Sophie had no idea what had just happened. Did I just agree with him riding bulls? Wait…I just told him to keep riding, didn’t I? The man has muddled my mind.
“Let’s go get some barbeque. It sure smells good.” Mason took her arm. Alice sided up next to him and took his other arm.
“It sure does,” Alice agreed.
The four of them started walking toward the food stands that lined the north end of the area. The layout of the rodeo was quite spectacular. And it was a bit surprising seeing so many people. She’d never been to a rodeo. This whole experience was and quite exciting. They passed various booths selling all sorts of things like jewelry, leather belts, artwork, and she even spotted a booth that sold guns.
“Do you want to stop at one of the booths to see if there is anything you like?” Alex leaned down and whispered in her ear, and Sophie smiled, shaking her head.
“Come on, let’s look. You might find something you want,” Alex coaxed.
She shrugged. “I didn’t bring any money.”
“You don’t have to worry about that. You’re here with Mason and me. You’re our woman, right?” he asked, staring at her. His eyes sparkled, begging her to challenge him.
“Yes.” She licked her lips. “I’m your woman.” Gosh, I wish we were alone.
“Then let’s go over and take a look.” Alex took the lead and then stopped in his tracks, turning to face her. “I want to buy you something.” When she gave a slight nod, he held her hand and made his way through the throngs of people and over to the booths.
“Look at you?” He looked down. “Both of you?” Mason and Alex looked at each other. “Your bodies…how can those muscles be real?”
Throwing back his head, Alex started laughing, and Mason joined in.
“Oh, baby, you are way too cute. I’m just an ordinary guy.” Alex climbed onto the bed, brushing his naked body against hers.
“Ordinary? Do you even know what that word means? You’re more than ordinary.” Alex kissed her then, not the gentle way he had before. No, this was raw and full of passion.
The sound of foil tearing got her attention, and she stopped the kiss to look at Mason. He rolled the condom over his huge cock before climbing on the bed. She stared at him as he moved between her legs. He lifted her thighs high and wide. His cock pressed against the opening of her pussy.
She stared at him, his blue eyes becoming darker, making him look sexy and a tad dangerous. Slowly he pushed in and Sophie held her breath. It was unlike anything she had ever felt, his hard cock covered in soft silk.
“You’re so tight and hot, baby. Your pussy is pulling me in. It’s so good, the best thing I’ve ever felt.” Mason’s eyes were gentle. He didn’t move for a minute, letting her body adjust.
“You look so beautiful.” Alex leaned down and kissed her.
Mason started to move, slow strokes, working his cock all the way inside her. Sophie reached up, needing to touch him, and wrapped her arms around his neck. They stared at each other, and she could feel the connection grow between them. Mason lay on top of her fully and kissed her lips all the while swiveling his hips, driving his hard cock into her.
Pulling back, he whispered, “I want you to suck Alex’s cock, sweetheart.” Mason moved back then, giving her room.
Sophie turned her head and looked at Alex. He sat back on the bed, smiling at her, and she hated that he was so far away. Reaching out her hand, she grabbed his cock. She pumped her hand slowly up and down his rigid length, and Alex groaned, moving closer.
“Alex, I want your cock in my mouth.” He responded to her dirty words immediately, like she knew he would.
Going to his knees before her, he held her head in his hand. “Nice and easy, sweetheart.” She really didn’t have much experience, but she was quite eager to please him.
Wrapping her mouth around the head of his cock, she gently sucked him into her mouth. Holding the base with her hand, she pumped his hard shaft while she licked and sucked on him. She pretended he was a Popsicle, taking her time to cover his entire length.
“Oh, sweetheart, you’ve got a wicked little mouth.” Alex’s praise gave her all the encouragement she needed. Sophie swallowed him then, bobbing her head faster.
“Oh, fuck! Slow down, baby. I’m not going to last.” Alex wrapped her hair around his fist then and took control, fucking her mouth in long, smooth strokes.
Mason lifted her legs higher over his shoulders and fucked her deep. She felt his cock touch places inside of her that had never been touched before. Gripping her hips tightly, he slammed into her, fucking her harder, and Sophie yelled in her throat. Nothing had ever felt so good. No man had ever fucked her with such passion. She never wanted this moment to end. So thick and hot, his cock hammered in one explosion after another as rapture began to race through her. She was on edge, and she didn’t want to go over alone.
Sucking Alex harder and faster, she moved her hips, meeting Mason’s, fucking him back. Her world started to shatter, muscles tightening, and she could feel her climax within reach.
“Oh, God! Sweetheart, I’m gonna come. If you don’t want to swallow…” Alex bellowed, pumping his hips, shoving his cock down her throat.
This salty flavor exploded on her tongue, and Sophie swallowed every drop. She kissed the head of his cock once more before turning her attention back to Mason. She wanted to watch him come. She wanted to see his face covered with passion.
“You’re so sexy,” Mason growled, moving faster, fucking her harder. He reached between their bodies and, using his thumb, he rubbed her clit in small, hard circles.
Sophie’s body tightened as she screamed, as her body exploded with pleasure. Closing her eyes tight, she saw a kaleidoscope of colors. In the distance she heard a masculine shout calling out her name, and she felt the warm flood of Mason’s release.
Panting, she tried to catch her breath. Mason moved then, and she felt a cool breeze touch her hot skin. She grumbled a complaint right before two strong, male bodies cocooned her in warmth and love. Someone pulled a blanket over them, and together they cuddled.
