Karsyn Davies has spent years running from the very emotion most girls search for: love. It's the only way to avoid unnecessary heartache. Love is the very thing to destroy a person, attacking at the very source for life: the heart. Love is for fools. The only way to avoid drowning is to stay out of the water.
She never had the option to be taught the beauty of love. She was raised with the toughest, the emotionally shut off. She was raised by a man, but not just any man. She was raised by a cowboy.
There isn't room on a farm to get caught up in the tornado of emotions that life can cause. The key to survival is to keep the heart and mind free of anything that can harm them. Mingling with a member of the opposite sex should be reserved for friendships, or so she was taught. Separating lust from love is all mental.
That theory was even confirmed when she let her free spirit reign for a while, venturing into a relationship that burned her. Staying away a second time was going to be easy. Emotional attachments to men are bullshit in every form. Death of the heart is avoidable when you recognize the things that can kill you. When you see them run like hell in the opposite direction, but what happens when it decides to chase after you?
Fisher Austin has never let a girl sway him. Raised in a small town the only goal was to get out. Born with a natural talent football was going to be his ride.
College life was something he didn't bargain for. Booze, parties, and girls at every corner were a wake up call that maybe small towns aren't so bad. What happened to a guy having to work for a girl instead of bedding every one that made an offer? He's not looking for a lifelong commitment, but something other than a one-night stand would be nice.
Just when the starting quarterback thought there wasn't a girl on campus that would appeal to him, a blonde bombshell comes waltzing into his life, and even better she's a close friend with the wife of his best friend. There is something about the fireball with no filter that he can't forget. Like a Mustang she's wild and she's strong, but damn if she isn't beautiful.
What do you do when the one you want doesn't want to be caught? Do you move on to someone else or start training to run?
When in doubt turn to fate and you might be surprised when it throws you your final chase...
