New set of problems
Suddenly single—and pregnant—Abby James hopes Three Springs, Texas, will give her the fresh start she craves. But five minutes in and she’s already clashed with a former Navy SEAL on horseback. Wes Tanner might be devastatingly handsome, but Abby has no time for romance. Especially with a man intent on leaving town. Abby wants to plant some roots…and falling for the tempting Texan could upend all her plans!
“I believe people’s personal business should remain personal.” He added a slight warning to his tone. He wouldn’t pry into her life the same as he expected her to remain out of his. They weren’t building anything here. He was simply following orders from Ilene and looking after Abby. For now.
She nodded and bit into a cracker. “Have you always worked at the Feisty Owl? Did you start your career busing tables, then eventually step into the manager’s role?”
He tilted his head and studied her.
She laughed, drawing much-needed color back into her cheeks, and motioned between them with her half-eaten cracker. “This is what two people do, Wes. Friends talk.”
“Is that what we are now?” They’d graduated from acquaintances to friends. Nothing he couldn’t manage.
Her voice softened. “I’d like to think so.”
He watched her. And turned the idea of them being friends over in his mind. “Do you always pry into your friends’ personal business?”
“I haven’t had many friends.” She shrugged one shoulder. “That’s not exactly true. It’s more that there hasn’t been anyone I’ve wanted to talk to and get to know in a long time.” She paused, sipped her tea and added, “Does that make sense?”
Unfortunately, it made too much sense.
