Five years ago, Mitchell Riverton thought he had everything, until the love of his life turned her back on him, leaving him a shell of the man he once was. Thankfully, the family ranch kept his body busy while his broken heart struggled with every beat.

But one phone call changed it all.

When Makayla Gregory decided to leave the small, suffocating hometown where she grew up, she also walked away from her soulmate. Trying to move on, she grew her real estate business, but every business deal reminded her of the man she had left behind.

With illegal activities threatening her family, Makayla returns to Riverton Crossing.

Is a second chance too much to ask? Are the flames still burning or has time cooled the embers? And will an unwelcomed greeting send her away again?




His tongue took a complete swipe from back to front. “You taste so good, like a mixture of sweet honey with a touch of fresh salt water. My favorite. I never forgot it.” He looked at her. “The first time I ever went down on you was at the beach. We’d just come out of the ocean from a late-night swim. One of my fondest memories. I’ve used it many times over the years.” His eyes danced with mischief.
            Before she could protest his walk down memory lane, his mouth returned to where she wanted it most. She felt the familiar tightening in her lower abdomen and moaned unrestricted. Mitchell slipped a finger into her pussy and moved it in and out. “Damn, baby, you weren’t kidding. You need to come so you’ll relax, and I can get inside of you.” He added another finger, and she came undone. Helplessly quivering with every pump of his hand. Her stomach contracted, letting her see his mouth on her clit and his gaze locked on hers. She dropped her head to the pillow and let out a satisfied sigh.
            Mitchell kissed the insides of her thighs before he climbed his way back up her body and kissed her thoroughly. “See how good you taste.” He swiped his tongue inside her mouth as he rubbed his body against hers.
            Her fingers worked their way between his waistband and his skin. “Your shorts are still on.”
            He lowered his head and kissed from her jaw to her ear. “Are you still on birth control? I’m clean. I used condoms. I’ve always used them. It’s just that I’ve waited so long for this day, I don’t want anything between us.”
            “I know you used them before with me because we were young, but even with her?”
            “Yes, always. I only ever wanted to ride bareback with you. Only you.”
            She looked into his eyes. “Yes.”
            He sat on his heels again and pushed his shorts and boxers down his thighs while she followed him up. He stood in the bed as she pulled his clothes the rest of the way off. She was grateful his parents had the forethought to have high ceilings. He stepped out of his boxers while she rose to her knees. Staring up at him, she licked from root to tip. The moan that left his mouth gave her courage to continue her oral exploration. His muscles tightened when she lowered her mouth to suck one of his balls. A sudden rush of breath echoed in the quiet room as she released the first one and took in the other. After a gentle lap of her tongue, she released it, moving back to his cock. She found him staring at her as she held his cock in front of her lips. Without breaking eye contact, licked the tip and took him in as far as she could. She felt him at the back of her throat when his hands grasped the sides of her head and gently pushed her back. “Not today, baby. I can’t last that long. I’ve wanted back inside of you for too long to risk losing it in your mouth.”
            He eased her back down on the bed before he repositioned himself between her legs. She noticed his cock was just as impressive as it was when they were younger. He rubbed himself in her juices and slid in about an inch. “You okay, Mak? I don’t know how slowly I can go, but you’re so tight.”
            “Just like the first time.” Her fingers pressed against his back as her nails scratched him. “You made it good the first time.”

            “Then look at me. The first time we didn’t take our eyes off each other. Give me that now.” He pushed farther into her.

I grew up on a farm in a small southern town with a love of sports, dance, and music which usually find their way into my books. My husband and I have two grown children. When I’m not writing, my husband and I are attending sporting events, traveling, or working.
