Get a sneak peak: Jess (and her dog) meet Murphy and Cole for the first time. “Finding Satisfaction”, Satisfaction Texas #1, on presale now!
Both cowboys smiled as she approached. “Hey, there!” The blond had a nice voice, deep, with just a touch of a Texan accent. “Beautiful animal you have. What is he, about three or four?”
Determined not to let her attraction to them override her common sense, Jess went on the offensive. “Almost five, actually. Why are you two cowboys …hanging around my Jeep and trying to win over my dog? Don’t you have some horses to look after or cows to wrangle?” She was annoyed with herself for wanting to give in to her attraction and flirt with them. Now was definitely not the time for romance. She found herself snapping at them, instead.
“But, ma’am, you told me to leave the bar and go out your Jeep.” The brunette looked at her, sincerity shining from his lying or maybe delusional eyes. “I was just trying to be obliging.” His accent was so slow and thick she could almost cut it with a knife.
“You did, ma’am. I heard you with my own ears.” The blond was agreeing, his accent now as thick as his buddy’s, and she felt a bit worried. She could barely understand them. She started to back away.
“Maybe I should go and get the sheriff and we can get this straightened out. Murphy!” The brunette stranger’s deep voice was almost, but not quite, drowned out by Murphy’s bark in reply.
“What? I was calling my dog.”
“You said Murphy.”
“Yes, I did. That’s his name.”
“I didn’t know that back in the bar. As far as I knew, you ordered me outside by name, in a very insulting way, if I recall, calling me no-account and referring to my butt as flea-bitten. I have to say that my butt has no fleas, and I’d be happy to drop my shorts and let you see for yourself.”
