7 LawmanThe Lawman’s Lover

Crawley Creek 7

A divorcee whose broken dreams are buried so deep she can’t remember where she put them.  

A Deputy Sheriff with a mountain of responsibilities weighing him down. 

 A fling. No strings attached. No plans for the future. 

Until someone’s heart gets broken. 

Find out how Deputy Colby Bricker and waitress Elizabeth Newcomer take their shared past and build a new future, in this sister story to the Crawley Creek Ranch Series.

 

Excerpt

Colby’s head lifted and he smiled widely, showing perfectly straight white teeth and the deep dimple high on his left cheek. “Morning, Bethie.”

“It’s Elizabeth—” she corrected, setting the coffee in front of him with a sharp huff.

“You’ll always be Bethie to me. You don’t grow up with someone being called one thing and then change it overnight. Besides, you don’t look like an Elizabeth,” he observed, lifting one large arm onto the back of the booth seat so he was turned to face her.

Her eyebrows rose. “Oh? What exactly does an Elizabeth look like?”

“Polished, cold, and untouchable.” The way he spoke the last word sent a tingle down her back that centered right between her legs and she could feel her cheeks grow red. The glint of amusement in his coffee-brown eyes made her fidget in place and she tried not to notice the attractive way his neatly trimmed beard and mustache framed his perfectly kissable lips.

“And I’m none of those things?” she questioned, in a creaky voice.

Colby cocked his head, his eyes going from the top of her blonde hair, all the way down her curvy frame to her unappealing grandma shoes with non-slip rubber soles. “I wouldn’t say that. I see polish, in the sense that even an unpolished diamond is breathtaking, and if the cold inside you will ease the heat inside of me, I’d say you could be the most touched woman in the state.”

Elizabeth was anything but cold at that moment. In fact, she was sure the pitcher full of ice water in her hand was going to be boiling if she looked at it. No matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t come up with anything intelligent to say in response, so she just blushed harder and left him hanging.

Her legs were trembling as she refilled water glasses all over the restaurant before she could hide in the back and take a moment to catch her breath. She couldn’t believe Colby Bricker was making a play for her. He’d been one of the popular guys in high school. Always linked to one of the cheerleaders, or the class president, or some other girl with a solid future ahead of her, and usually a slightly less strict moral compass. He’d had no time for a reverend’s daughter back then, but they weren’t teenagers anymore. In fact, he was leaps and bounds from the jock he’d been in high school. Now he wore the dark gray deputy’s uniform as if it were a second layer of skin.

If the badge on his chest and the handcuffs on his belt weren’t enough, the gun at his hip was enough to make her weak-kneed and giggly. It was ridiculous, just like his calling her Bethie. She was a grown woman. She deserved the respect of being called Elizabeth by the adults around her.

I’m tougher than I look. No cowboy is going to ruffle my feathers with a few compliments.” She smiled at the relief on his face. “You do owe me something, though.”

His thick black eyebrow rose, “Really? What’s that?”

“All of that flirting, and you never managed to tell me your name. I think you owe me that after getting me all worked up and walking away.”

“Are you seeing anyone?” Vin asked abruptly. She felt her mouth drop open, and she shook her head before she could reconsider.

“Why do you want to know?”

He shrugged. “Curiosity I guess.”

“Curiosity killed the cat.”

Grinning a bit like the Cheshire Cat himself, Vin retorted, “But satisfaction brought him back. Nine lives, baby.”

“You’re going to go get her and bring her back, right?” Hawke acted like it was a fact not a wish, and Kyler growled low in his throat.

“I think she made it pretty clear she doesn’t want me.”

Again, Hawke nodded calmly. “Yep. But the way I see it, nothing’s changed. You love her, and she loves you. She pushes you away, and you hold her tighter. That’s what love is.”

“Do you know how much I’ve missed you?” he rasped against her throat, kissing his way across her pulse point and up over her chin to her lips. She’d never been a limp lover, and their connection flamed quickly.

Lips locked, and tongues tangled as they both melted into the embrace. Her glossy hair tumbled over her shoulders into his face. It smelled like apricots, and his cock twitched.

With both hands, he lifted her, fitting her thighs around his hips so that he could rock against her hot core. He needed to feel her again. She’d been the only thing in the world that ever brought him joy, and he felt like a parched man in the desert drinking from a crystal-clear oasis.

Whatever beautiful twist of fate had brought her back into his life didn’t matter; all that mattered to him now was keeping her there.

OUT FOR BLOOD by Jordan Dane



Mercer Broderick is haunted by the death of his wife and son. While on a covert mission as a CIA operative four years earlier, he’d been on foreign soil instead of protecting Keara and Braeden in America. His family’s killers were never found. With his entire world destroyed, he quit the CIA and struggled for a reason to live, wallowing in grief and an all-consuming guilt.

Mercer emerged from the fog of devastation, obsessed with swift justice and driven to honor the memory of his beloved wife and child. He forged a network of wealthy benefactors across the world—the Alliance—influential, high powered people who secretly yearn for a new world order of vigilante justice. With the support of a mysterious Danish woman, Eva Henriksen, Mercer built Zion in the mountains of Wyoming, a fortified sanctuary for his handpicked team.

After Mercer gets a lead on who ordered the hit on his family, he’s drawn to El Paso to take on the Galvez cartel and the faceless man known only as the Jaguar. Accompanied by his exotic bodyguard specialist, Keiko Kayakova—a blue-eyed Japanese beauty trained by her lethal Russian father—Mercer calls upon the Equalizers to join his Alliance team—Detective Santiago Gonzales, computer genius Saxon Abbott, Micah Wolfe and Jet Ivan Foster. With the clock ticking, Mercer must take down the Jaguar before he closes up shop and disappears forever, taking his fortune and leaving a bloody carnage of dead witnesses.

But when his plan derails, Mercer is forced to risk his life to stop a mad man from getting away with murder.
