Lazarus by Beth Williamson

Lazarus Graham has always been the black sheep of his family. Leaving behind the ranch his family had owned for nearly 200 years, he lives life as a Texas Ranger. Tough, hard and inflexible, he has no time for life's fripperies.

Beatrice Cartwright never expected to run into her childhood nemesis again. Yet Laz Graham sauntered into her store to investigate a crime nearby. Then the man had the nerve to not remember her.

Being a Graham isn't easy, and it's about to get a lot harder for one stubborn lawman and the woman who still owns his heart.

READ AN EXCERPT

He cupped her cheek and a shiver raced down her skin. “You gave up your dreams to live theirs?”
She’d not heard it phrased in such a way before and it made her decision sound foolish. “No, I took responsibility for my family’s business. I couldn’t let my grandfather’s vision for a Cartwright legacy die with my parents.” Her tone was sharper than she expected.
“You’re right. I can’t judge you for what you did.” He pulled his hand away and she almost stopped him. “But for what it’s worth, you would have been a good cop.”
She turned away from him and stared blindly at the colorful sticky notes. The colors of the rainbow decorated the wall, a collection of awfulness in the guise of something beautiful.
“Thank you, I think.” She wrapped her arms around her middle. “I guess we have obligations to our families that we might not want.”
He nodded. “True enough.” He put his hand on her shoulder. “I think we have something to start with. Finally.”
The warmth of his large hand was strangely comforting in the harsh light of the almost barren room. There was almost nothing left of the store. It was a clean slate. She could either rebuild what was taken from her, or she could sell it all and start again.
First, however, she wanted to find out who was behind the crimes and help Laz catch the son of a bitch.
“I want to be part of this until the end.” She turned to look up into his beautiful blue-green eyes. “Tell me you won’t leave me here and finish this without me.”
His expression was just as hard as it had been when they started, but he dipped his head and kissed her. Soft and quick. Her heart thudded into a gallop. Suddenly all she could see, all she could smell, all she could feel was him. The fans buzzed back and forth, but instead of cooling her down, her temperature notched up.
“It’s hot in here.” Her voice was a crackly whisper.
“The AC is off.”
“It’s not the AC.” She told herself to step back, to move away from him. Yet her body didn’t obey. Nope, she did something really stupid instead.
She set the beer down and kissed him. His lips moved against hers, giving as much as receiving. She opened her mouth. The sweet heat slid through her as their tongues rasped and danced with each other. Her arms found their way around his neck and she pressed her breasts against his exceptionally hard chest.
What was she doing?
“Is this a good idea?” He murmured against her cheek as he kissed his way to her neck.
Bea took off her glasses and dropped them on the floor beside her. “No, it’s not.”
That didn’t stop her from backing him toward the chair and pushing his shoulders until he sat. Her nipples strained against her bra and her pussy throbbed with need, pulsing in tune with her rapid heartbeat. One kiss, that was all it took. Apparently touching Lazarus was like a switch.
She was on.
She climbed on his lab, pressing her heated core against him and was rewarded with a thump from his burgeoning erection. She slid back and forth, reveling in the friction. He cupped her breasts, hefting their weight while his thumbs brushed her straining nipples.
“God, these are amazing.” He tugged at the hem of her shirt until he could pull it off.
It was almost laundry day so the only bra she’d had to wear was a pink lacy, sexy one that she had bought at the urging of a friend. Bea only wore it when she had no other clean ones. Her big boobs were just about falling out of the scrap of lace that pretended to be a bra.
Laz, however, appeared to appreciate it. He growled low in his throat and pinched her nipples through the lace. The combination of the rough material against the sensitive skin made her gasp.
“These are magnificent.”
She couldn’t help it. She barked a short laugh. “Magnificent?”
He frowned up at her. “Don’t underestimate the lure of these.” He nipped at one, and she sucked in a breath. When he pulled back the lace off the left side, exposing the nipple, he licked it once. “Magnificent.”

Jake: Men of Clifton by Susan Fisher Davis
Montana Book 1


Jake Stone isn’t happy about Hattie’s granddaughter suddenly appearing to take over her ranch after Hattie’s death, but he knows she’d want him to make her welcome. He just didn’t expect to like the stubborn redhead quite so much. Becca Daniels has inherited a horse ranch from a grandmother she never knew. To sell it, she has to live on it for six months. Otherwise, it goes up for auction. Now it seems someone else wants it and is trying to run her off. Now, with her horses stolen, her home invaded, and threats made against her if she doesn’t leave, Becca doesn’t know where to put her trust. What sinister plot is underway to force her hand? Worst of all, could the gorgeous cowboy who’s managed to steal her heart be behind it all?



READ AN EXCERPT

Becca walked through a hallway and entered a large foyer. Glancing to her right, she saw stairs leading to the second floor. Hearing the snap of flames on wood, she peered into what must be the living room aglow with shimmering light. Tilting her head, she wondered who had made a fire for her. She jumped when she suddenly heard the back door open.
Opening her purse, she pulled out the can of mace she carried, and slowly walked back to the kitchen. Becca came to a dead stop when she saw the man who’d entered her kitchen. He’d halted his forward motion when he saw her with the defense spray in her hands. He raised an eyebrow at her.
“Who the hell are you and what are you doing in my house?” Becca gasped, holding her chest.
The man took his time taking off his coat, then his cowboy hat. He shook the snow off his hat and set it on the kitchen table. 
Becca bit back a groan. This man was simply gorgeous. He had broad shoulders, slim hips, a straight narrow nose, and high cheekbones. His thick, straight black hair hung to the collar of his flannel shirt. Her eyes skimmed down his tall frame, and she could feel her cheeks burning. He certainly knew how to fill out a pair of jeans. They were tight across his muscular thighs and cupped his sex in a snug fashion. Stubble covered a square jaw. His mouth had a bowed upper lip and a full bottom lip that she suddenly had the absurd desire to suck into her mouth. This man was definitely trouble with a capital T, a bad boy and sexy as sin.
Becca suppressed a shiver. Did all the men in Montana look like this? Her mouth felt as dry as the Mojave Desert.
“Jake Stone, ma’am,” he told her in a deep voice.
When it registered what he’d said, she felt her temperature rising.
“Jacob Stone?”
His mouth twitched. “My mother was the only one to call me that, but yes, I’m Jacob Stone.”
“What are you doing here?”
“I forgot to leave you a note telling you that if you needed anything, to call me,” he grinned, displaying perfect white teeth. “So, do you need anything? Can I do anything for you, Red?”
Could he do anything for her? Sure … whatever he wanted. Stop it!
“You’re the man who thinks he’s going to buy my land? My ranch. The ranch that my grandmother left me.”
She watched his jaw clench as he walked toward her. A muscle twitched in his cheek.
“So, you’re Hattie’s granddaughter, huh? The same granddaughter who never visited her. Not once. The granddaughter who all of a sudden shows up because Hattie left her something. The granddaughter who couldn’t even show up for her grandmother’s funeral.” Not once did he raise his voice. He didn’t need to. The anger poured off him in waves. With each word, he had stepped closer until she could actually feel the heat coming off him.
Instinctively, she stepped back as she gazed up into dark brown eyes surrounded by thick, lush lashes. He had to be six four, at the very least. Standing at five eight, Becca was used to looking men in the eyes, but not this one. She could see fine lines at the corners of his eyes. He was tan from working outdoors and she had a feeling his body was well muscled from that as well. She thought him to be in his mid-thirties maybe, but it was hard to tell. Then his words sank in.
“I didn’t know about the funeral. Hell, I didn’t even know about her.” She shook her head. “My father never mentioned his mother to me. I was shocked when her attorney contacted me.”
