Carter is ready to propose and he wants the perfect ring to do so. A dear friend asks a favor of him and he’s got no other choice than to go the auction he hadn’t wanted to. Then again, he is after the perfect ring and the auction has a choice of three perfect ones. The last thing he expects is for his world to be turned upside down the very next day. He proposes, but his intended declines with a BIG FAT NO. Oh my God!!! I loved this dialogue. I could hear his Texan drawl, every time he said “excuse me”. After that let down, he swears he’s done and he never ever wants to propose again. He never wants to get married or have kids. Of course that only lasts until he meets Macy. Then things change.
Macy is a Hollywood starlet who is broke. Her mom died and as if that weren’t enough she’s got two lawsuits and many debts to pay. So, she decides to auction all of her mother belongings to settle all debts and be free, while she figures what she wants to do the rest of her life. The paparazzis, annoying as only they can be, don’t leave her alone. In her cry of help, Carter comes to her rescue. What should’ve ended a few minutes later turns into a safe hideaway from the rest of the world for her.
I loved, loved, loved this story. I knew I was going to like it, but never did I imagine I’d like it as much as I did. I don’t really read cowboys, not because I don’t like I just hardly ever come across any. But OMG, this cowboy and Hollywood (that is Carter’s nickname for Macy) made me laugh, aawww, say “you tell her Carter”, “well played Macy”. I can go on and on, but all I can say again is I’ll be reading more of Charlene Sands for sure.
