Blurb Blitz: Weston's Lady by Bobbi Smith

 

WESTON'S LADY

Bobbi Smith


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Historical Romance


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Come One! Come All!

To Weston’s Wild West Texas Stampede


There were Cowboys and Indians, trick riding, thrills and excitement for everyone. And if Liberty Jones had anything to say about it, she would be a part of the show, too. She had demonstrated her expertise with a gun by shooting a playing card out of Reed Weston’s hand at thirty paces, but the arrogant owner of the stampede wouldn’t even give her a chance.


Disguising herself as a boy, Libby wrangled herself a job with the show, and before she knew it Reed was firing at her—in front of an audience. It seemed an emotional showdown was inevitable whenever they came together, but Libby had set her sights on Reed’s heart and she vowed she would prove her love was every bit as true as her aim.

EXCERPT


Reed opened the door to his private wagon and stood back to let Libby enter ahead of him. She swept past him, her manner dignified and ladylike, in spite of her masculine attire. 


“Have a seat.” He motioned to one of the chairs at the small table.


“No, thank you. I prefer to stand.”


“Have it your way,” he said sharply. “It seems you don’t listen well, Miss Jones. As I recall, I told you I wasn’t hiring for the show—and I especially wasn’t hiring any women.”


“I hired on as a boy,” she retorted.


Reed’s gaze raked over her. “So I see. How ingenuous of you.”


“You wouldn’t give me a chance! I’m good and I just proved it tonight! The performance would have been a disaster if I hadn’t stopped the runaway team in time! The audience thought it was a regular part of the act.”


“I could tell,” he answered, irritated by the whole situation.


“I can help you with the show,” Libby went on, trying not to sound desperate. If he fired her, she had no money, and nowhere else to go.


“I don’t need your help, Miss Jones.”


“But you wouldn’t want to disappoint the public, would you?”


“You know, you’re right. You are worth a lot of money to me. You wanted a job with Weston’s Wild West Texas Stampede—well, you’ve got one. You’re officially Weston’s Lady.”


“Know this, Reed Weston—I am worth a lot of money to you, and I’ll earn ever cent of it working for the Stampede, but that’s the only place I’m going to be Weston’s Lady.”


“We both know you’re not a lady, and I’m not sure you’re much of a woman.” Even as he said it, Reed knew it was a lie. She looked beautiful as she challenged him. Her hair was a glorious golden mane of curls about her shoulders and high color stained her cheeks.


Libby reacted without thought, swinging out at him.


Reed snared her wrist to stop her when she would have slapped him, and he jerked her to him.


In that instant, his awareness of everything except Libby faded. He drew her near, slowly, deliberately. He wanted this—no, he needed this. He needed to taste her passion.


Libby found herself frozen, held captive by the unfathomable look in Reed’s eyes.


Their lips met, and time seemed suspended as his mouth settled over hers in a possessive brand, claiming her sweetness for his own.
