Going Up The Country

How far will you go for the love of your life?

Pro-wrestler Wyatt Novello never believed in love at first sight. Not until he traveled cross-country to attend his brother's wedding, and met a girl who made him go weak in the knees.

Arielle Browne knows a bad boy when she sees him. She should; her weakness for the type has already landed her in trouble a time or two. It didn't take more than one look to convince her that Wyatt was everything she wanted in a man--and everything she needs to stay far, far away from. Both for her own sake, and that of her two impressionable sons.

But Wyatt's determined to go the distance. Either he'll find a way to convince Arielle that she's wrong--about him, and about their chances of achieving their own Happily Ever After--or he'll die trying.

They're each convinced they've chosen the right path. But how do you know when you've gone too far?

There's no way that woman belongs on a farm, surrounded by sheep and goats and good ol' boys who clearly don't know enough to appreciate how lucky they are to even be able to breathe the same air. With hair like a mermaid and eyes like the sea, she ought to spend her days perched on a rock amidst crashing waves, daring men to risk drowning themselves for the chance to kiss her. Even her name's a dead giveaway. Arielle. You think it's coincidence that it's almost the same as Disney's fishtailed princess? Think again.

I bet she even tastes like the sea--not that I'm likely ever to find out the way things are going. Because, somehow, ever since her sister married my brother she's come up with the dumb idea that we're family now, and can't date.

Really? After kissing me stupid on the Ferris wheel? Blowing my mind...and possibly other parts of my anatomy in the Fun House? After we went skinny dipping together? Yeah, there's no closing that barn door any more. That sucker's been ripped right off its hinges.

And don't think for a moment that this is entitlement talking. I'm not saying she owes me a damn thing. She has every right to change her mind; I get all that. But, the thing is, I don't think she has changed it--not really. I think she just got scared--by how fast things flared up between us, how hot things got, how badly it looked like we could both get burned.

And I can't even fault her for feeling that way. Hell, I'm scared too! We really don't have much in common. We've each made lives for ourselves, and we didn't leave a whole lot of room in them for anyone else. But, all the same...I just can't seem to stop thinking about her.

That's why I'll be going up the country this Thanksgiving. Hoping I can make her see some sense. Because, the thing is, terrifying as it sounds, I do want us to be family. Just not in the way she's thinking.
