Whistle Stop is abuzz...the mayoral election is just weeks away.
Candidate Mason Noble has a vested interest in fast-tracking the town's revitalization project. But the votes he'd counted on are drying up because his engagement to Bella Nez ended abruptly. The local grapevine is humming with rumors, but only he and Bella know the truth. And they aren't talking!
When an emergency puts Bella in the proverbial tough spot, she needs money and fast. There's only one person who can help--Mason. He agrees to a loan, but he has a condition. He needs Bella by his side again. A reconciliation would win over the townspeople--and it would give him a chance to win back the only woman he's ever loved.
Bella hesitates to accept Mason's terms. Until she's blindsided by unexpected news that has her rethinking everything. Bella is expecting a baby, and there's a heart-wrenching choice to be made...
NOTE: each book in the series can be read as a standalone. Each couple has their own HEA.
He glanced down at Bella as they slowly made their way around the dance floor. Their bodies were close enough that he could smell the gentle floral scent of her shampoo. He inhaled deeper. Some things didn’t change, like the chemistry between them.
And yet, some things did change.
Like the fact they were no longer a couple, even though they’d acted like one most of the day.
It was all so confusing.
And then there was the baby.
Mason still struggled to wrap his head around that concept. And it made holding Bella in his arms even more complicated. She’d made it clear that she didn’t want any part of his political aspirations, not even to help the town she claimed to love so much.
And somewhere along the way, he’d found himself excited by the prospect of having a voice in helping the people in this town and perhaps one day helping the people of this state. It was a calling he hadn’t considered until he’d been put in the situation of stepping outside his comfort zone. It had started as an act of desperation and evolved into so much more.
In the background played Toby Keith’s You Shouldn’t Kiss Me Like This. Mason tried his best to ignore the lyrics. The harder he tried, the more the words dug at him. The memories washed over him.
Him and Bella falling in love.
The talks that lasted all night.
The glances that spoke volumes.
As her body swayed against his, he let the fantasy of the past sweep him away. He knew he shouldn’t kiss her, and yet he pulled her closer. Her soft curves snuggled up next to him. In that moment, he realized how he’d taken her for granted. Before their relationship had fallen apart, he hadn’t truly appreciated how much Bella meant to him. He hadn’t taken stock of the fact that someday he might lose it all—if he’d ever truly had Bella.
“Mason?” Bella’s voice was soft and warm.
Was she listening to the song too? Did she miss the way they used to be?
“Shh…don’t talk. Just listen.”
He wondered if she could hear the music over the pounding of his heart. She lifted her chin and stared into his eyes. She really was the most beautiful woman in the world.

Cord Lawson instantly distrusted the young woman in a smart suit who’d just arrived in Whistle Stop. She was very pretty and clearly a city girl—but with memories of his failed marriage still darkening his mind, he’s determined to steer clear! But she’s sniffing around his land—land that had been in his family for generations. There was no way he’d let it go—even if the bank was threatening to foreclose, and selling could give Whistle Stop a new lease on life.
Alexis Greer had one mission in mind—close the deal on the Granger estate; without it, her father’s land development company would go bankrupt. But the word around town is to keep clear of Cord and to stay away from his precious land. What in the world had happened to cause such a handsome cowboy to live such a solitary existence? However, determination was Lexi’s middle name, and she just had to keep on trying to breach Cord’s barriers, appeal somehow to his head and heart—even if it put her in danger of losing both of hers…to him.
