The cowboy kiss

She’s a cutting-edge travel blogger—he’s a fishing guide with strong ties to their small hometown.

She thought they were arch enemies—he always thought they’d end up together.

Autumn grew up in her parents’ fishing resort in backwoods Oregon, listening to wild travel stories from around the world. Now she’s broken free and living her dream as a travel blogger, that is until her mom talks her into coming home and writing a blog about the Rugged Resort. Autumn’s very surprised to find Cory still there. He was the thorn in her side growing up, and now he’s buddy-buddy with her parents. She plans to write her blog and hit the road, but Cory has other ideas.

Sample text:

Cory sat strumming his guitar on the front porch the day Autumn waved out the car window as she drove past, leaving for college and her new life. A flash of hand, a wisp of honey-blond hair, and possibly a slight hint of her voice on the wind. The air smelled sweetly of dry hay and blackberries, a smell that embodied their long, lazy summers spent together growing up. A dark cloud crept across the sky and slid in front of the sun, throwing a shadow across her car and the surrounding landscape.

She took my sunshine with her…

The line popped into his head and into the song he’d been working on. It was one of several songs for his next gig, and one of these days he’d make it to Nashville. If she could get out of this small town, so could he.

He didn’t need Autumn. She could go chase her dreams and he’d chase his.

So what if they’d spent hours of their childhoods together, telling each other secrets and dreams, climbing trees, playing chase, watching stars and falling in love? He lifted his hand in a symbolic gesture since her car was long gone.

So long to childhood best friends and summer romances.

Hello to a whole new life.
