Summary

Half-dressed and going for naked…  
Starlight Tyler needs to get rid of something inconvenient—like her virginity—pronto. With her mother, a Pinkerton agent, and a wealthy suitor she can’t stand on her trail, there’s only one solution to stock them in their tracks—Cordero Tate, the love she left behind. 
She never expected his past to stall her headlong rush into his arms. 
Sheriff Cordero Tate is a haunted man on a mission. Come hell or high water, he’ll round up every member of the gang responsible for the deaths of his wife and unborn child. He’ll make damn sure he never puts his heart on the line again. As in never impregnating another woman. One look at Star, though, and all the old feelings of love and lust come back in a rush. Worse, she’s just as determined to lasso him into her web of passion as he is to keep her chaste. 
Their exploration of ways around that impasse leads to nights of unbearable sensual pleasure. 
Until her past catches up with her… 
This is a re-issue.

    From the Author
    I love short fiction. Sadly, short stories currently are not in demand. They belong to a bygone world where people subscribed to pulp magazines like Weird Tales and Amazing Stories. There are still periodicals and anthologies around, but they just don’t sell well. It seems now that we short story writers have lost our readers to smart phone aps and social networking. Oh well, times change. Call me a relic, but I still enjoy a good yarn written in 1,500 to 7,500 words. 
    
    Short story writing is a craft in and of itself. I have read too many short stories that are nothing more than a snatch of time during a character’s every-day life, or a description of a rogue walking down a dark street. Characters that make life-changing decisions and suffer the consequences drive the best short stories. I hope you enjoy this collection. Consider them peeks into the lives of mostly unfortunate souls as they face their penultimate hours of elation or dread.
    
    The problem of presentation order beset me as I put this compilation together. In the end, I decided to put them in order from longest to shortest. I think it might give you the sense of reading downhill. It’s always more fun to run down than to trod up.

    Dan watched the people in his life settle down, get married, and have kids, while he cycled through a seemingly endless string of break-ups and disappointing relationship fails. So when Ian, the college boyfriend Dan never quite forgot, comes back to town and wants to get together, Dan jumps at a second chance with the one who got away. And despite his track record, he holds out hope that he and Ian might make it work this time.  
    While Ian is still just as sweet and sexy as he ever was back in college, he’s also harder, slicker, and more secretive than Dan remembers. As a cop, Dan’s suspicions are roused by Ian’s behavior. As a man, he wants nothing more than to ignore those worries and fall headfirst into their new relationship. If Ian is a criminal, turning him in will break Dan’s heart. But ignoring his crimes could ruin Dan’s career. 
     
    Sometimes, what destroys us are not the things we fear, but our fears themselves.
