(Book Three, MacLarens of Fire Mountain Contemporary Romance Series)
By Shirleen Davies
Cameron “Cam” Sinclair is smart, driven, and dedicated, with an easygoing temperament that belies his strong will and the personal ambitions he holds close. Besides his family, his job as head of IT at the MacLaren Cattle Company and his position as a Search and Rescue volunteer are all he needs to make him happy. At least that’s what he thinks until he meets, and is instantly drawn to, fellow SAR volunteer, Lainey Devlin.
Lainey is compassionate, independent, and ready to break away from her manipulative and controlling fiancé. Just as her decision is made, she’s called into a major search and rescue effort, where once again, her path crosses with the intriguing, and much too handsome, Cam Sinclair. But Lainey’s plans are set. An opportunity to buy a flourishing preschool in northern Arizona is her chance to make a fresh start, and nothing, not even her fierce attraction to Cam Sinclair, will impede her plans.
As Lainey begins to settle into her new life, an unexpected danger arises —threats from an unknown assailant—someone who doesn’t believe she belongs in Fire Mountain. The more Lainey begins to love her new home, the greater the danger becomes. Can she accept the help and protection Cam offers while ignoring her consuming desire for him?
Even if Lainey finally accepts her attraction to Cam, will he ever be able to come to terms with his own driving ambition and allow himself to consider a different life than the one he’s always pictured? A life with the one woman who offers more than he’d ever hoped to find?
Read One More Day, another heart-warming and romantic story of passion, love, choices, and commitment in the MacLarens of Fire Mountain Contemporary Romance series.
She gasped and stepped backwards, knocking into the door frame, and almost unhinging the towel that had loosened from the rapid movement. “I’m sorry…I didn’t see you…” Her gaze locked on his.
She could feel her face redden and dropped her eyes to his muscled chest, sprinkled with crisp, blond hair. Her heart pounded erratically as an image of the two of them together took hold. She turned toward her room, then felt Cam’s gentle grip on her shoulder stopping her retreat.
He didn’t say a word, simply turned her toward him, and let his gaze wander from her face, down her still damp arms and legs, to her toes, which were painted with soft pink polish. He lifted a hand to stroke his knuckles down her cheek to her jaw, then ran a finger along the soft column of her neck.
Lainey stood motionless, knowing she should return to the shelter and safety of her bedroom. Her obstinate legs wouldn’t obey. They stayed rooted in place as her body reacted to his touch. She gazed up into warm brown eyes that had turned a deep chocolate. She moistened her dry lips, unaware of the effect the small action had on Cam. He let his hand move around to the back of her neck, drawing her toward him, lowering his head until their lips were a breath apart.
