Tatted Cowboy: Laura & Luke
One moment was all it took for my entire life to shatter.
I had everything...and then, I had nothing.
When all you’re left with are the pieces of your broken heart, there’s nothing you can do, except try to rebuild. So, that’s what I did.
One moment was all it took for me to feel the first flutter of hope I’d had in a long time.
He barrelled into my life, covered in tattoos and surrounded by an aura that enraptured me, determined to be the glue that held every broken piece of me together.
I wanted to push him away, because I was scared to lose anyone else I loved.
But, I wanted to hold him close because without him, my life was empty.
While each story in the Down Under Cowboy series can be read as a standalone, the author strongly encourages they be read in order.
With pain, comes blame. We blame the ones we love, we blame the one we lost, but most of all, we blame ourselves. It buries itself deep. So deep that on some days it feels like it’s in the marrow of your bones.
It destroys everything. The love you thought you had? Blame will chew it up and spit it out faster than you can blink.
Blame is like cancer; it eats away at all the good. It consumes you and if you are not careful, it will kill you.
Ever since her parents passed away in a tragic car accident, Eden Cross has been living a quiet, stable and predictable life in inner Sydney – the total opposite of her carefree, relaxed, happy-go-lucky past. Her parents passing and the fact she’s an only child meant Eden was left with her best friend, Jules and Matt, her boyfriend of three years as her only family. That was until she discovered something about Matt that would turn her life upside down. Eden leaves Sydney in a hurry and begins an adventure that takes her across four Australian states before she lands in Pine Creek, Northern Territory.
Jackson Henley has lived in Pine Creek his entire life. He runs a massive cattle and cropping station with his twin brother, Jeremy, which they inherited when their parents retired. He’s had a bad experience with relationships courtesy of The Bitch – Dannika, so lately he’s preferred to play the field. That is, until he comes face to face with the stunning brunette beauty who’s behind the bar at the Cow and Calf. The problem is, she won’t tell him her name, she won’t give him the time of day, and she won’t give him a chance to prove himself.
What’s it going to take for Eden to give Jackson a chance? Does he have the patience to even bother fighting for her? How will he handle the competition?
In the end, will Jackson have what it takes to convince Eden to start living again, instead of just existing?
At what point do you stop wanting someone you know you can never have?
Ava Crawley only had one dream in life; grow up and marry the boy next door, Jeremy Henley. When she was twenty, her dream was crushed by her nasty, vindictive, deceitful sister Kennedy. Unable to handle the hurt, Ava fled.
Jeremy Henley is a Sky Cowboy in Australia’s Northern Territory. Along with his twin brother, Jackson, he is Pine Creek’s finest catch. Jeremy doesn’t give a damn about that, he only cares about the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen; Ava Crawley. After years of waiting for Ava to show an interest in him, an opportunity presents itself and Jeremy takes it. Then, Ava up and leaves for France. No explanation. No goodbye. Nothing. She doesn’t come back for three years, and when she does, Jeremy has a baby son.
Will Ava and Jeremy be able to overcome the pain of the past and give their love a chance? Or, will Ava lose her life just as she’s starting to live her dream?
From USA Today Bestselling Author, Kasey Millstead, comes the third instalment of the #1 Bestselling Down Under Cowboy series.
My decision for moving from Sydney, NSW, to Pine Creek NT, was purely selfish…to begin with.
My best friend, Edie, had gone off on an adventure to find herself, and instead she’d found the love of her life. Not wanting to be left behind, I decided to follow her. I made this choice for a few reasons. First, I didn’t want to be without my best friend. Second, I’d slept with my boss, and trust me, once that happens, shit just gets awkward! And third, on a visit with Edie, I’d met a man.
A hunk of Aussie, crocodile egg collecting, cowboy, badass, hotness.
We had a one-night stand…and then another one when I visited again.
Then, I found out I was pregnant.
So now, moving to the Northern Territory wasn’t just about me escaping the awkwardness at work, or tagging along with my best friend. It was about developing a relationship with a man I hardly knew, who I was about to have a baby with.
I’m loathe to admit it, but I’m scared and I’m nervous. But most of all, I’m petrified he’s going to reject me. Because even though our ‘relationship’ so far has been limited to two sexual encounters, I can’t help the feelings that have taken root in my bones…feelings for Clay. And the worst part is, I don’t even know if he feels an inkling of what I do.
