Looking for redemption…
Finding a future
Rancher Liam Dale is in Shelter Creek to make amends for his troubled past. He had no idea vet assistant Trisha Gilbert would be there, too—and he’s even more shocked to discover he’s a daddy! Trisha has good reasons not to trust him and a baby boy to protect. But now that he knows he’s a father, Liam longs to transform this unexpected reunion into a true family.
In this excerpt from Her Surprise Cowboy, Trisha is trying to avoid Liam after she spots him in the grocery store.
Trisha hadn’t expected her first step to happen so soon. She wasn’t ready. Her emotions had been rubbed so raw during her conversation with Becca that the moment she spotted Liam in the Shelter Creek Market, she almost burst into tears.
That was why she was hiding behind the potato chip display, waiting for him to finish choosing milk in the dairy section. Trisha peered around the corner again. How could anyone take so long picking out a carton of milk? She pretended to examine the ingredients on a potato chip package while she waited, heart thrumming hard in her veins.
“No matter how long you stare at those, they’re not going to get healthy.”
Trisha started so violently, she hit the cardboard side of the display with her knee. Grabbing the swaying tower of chips to steady it, she glared at her friend Kathy Wallace from book club. “You scared me!”
Kathy’s face creased into a mischievous smile. With her gray pageboy haircut, she looked like an elderly elf. She peeked around the corner of the chip display. “Who are we spying on?”
“No one!” Trisha’s face heated. “Just craving chips, that’s all.”
“I don’t blame you.” Kathy grabbed a bag and dropped it in her basket. “I love these things. Guilty pleasure.”
Trisha forced herself to focus on Kathy’s kind face and big smile. “How are you?”
“Doing well, sweetie. Are you coming to book club next week? It’s at my house. And make sure you bring little Henry. I need my baby fix. Actually, I’m around this weekend, too, if you need a sitter.”
Trisha glanced around, scared that Liam would suddenly peek over the stacks of junk food between them and the next aisle and ask, “Who’s Henry?”
