He’s pretending not to love her. She’s pretending not to care.
Growing up, they shared a fence line, first kisses, and a romance that had the whole town talking. But Maren Friar traded her barbed-wire life for city lights and gave up on her childhood dream of marrying the cowboy next door. He’d made it clear that had been nothing more than playing house.
Rodeo pickup man Grady Cutter works hard, loves harder, and when he gives his word, it’s his bond. But agreeing to stay away from Maren hurts worse than being bucked off a wild bronco.
Now Maren’s returned home to her ranch and Grady is done pretending. With her father no longer standing in their way, they’re finally learning what the grown-up version of their love can look like. But the pretty blonde constantly at Grady’s side makes Maren second guess everything. And she can’t stomach the fact that Grady seems to be the only man in Riverburn to know the real truth behind her father’s mysterious death.
Will digging up past secrets ruin their chance at a future forever? Or will they discover that the best love stories are often a lifetime in the making?
Take the Fall is the first in a series featuring the cowboys of Riverburn County. All books can be read as standalones.
