Ride the River: Rodeo KnightsE-Book
❤What if the bank robber she's after is the childhood sweetheart she might not be over?❤
After Regina, longing to be an investigator, spots a pattern in far-flung bank robberies, she wins approval to go undercover at three rodeos to find out more. The first day she on the job at the rodeo, she runs into – literally – her childhood sweetheart, Chapin.
And has the horrifying realization that rodeo cowboy W.C. Johnson, one of three prime suspects who fit the robbery pattern, is her Chapin — William Chapin Johnson – competing under a hidden identity.
To keep Reggie from blurting out his real name in that first instant, Chapin grabs her and kisses her. One word and she can ruin what he's been working for.
Chapin is trying to make a comeback on the QT. He'd been on the cusp of stardom as a bronc rider until a nasty injury and botched recovery leaves experts saying he's done. As far as the rodeo world's concerned, he's retired and living happily on his ranch. But he can't let it go. Needing time to work his way back in, he's been rodeoing in unfamiliar small-town events, and under a different name.
Now, to keep from being outed just as he's making progress, he has to take Reggie into his confidence. But even after all these years he knows her too well not to realize she's keeping a secret from him. What on earth is she up to?
How will Chapin react if he finds out he's suspected as a bank robber? With this second chance, can they overcome the issues that drove them apart in the first place? Who the heck is robbing banks on the rodeo circuit and can he (or she) be stopped?
