Kitchen Witch Baylie Campbell needs a hero—a protector—when a crazed stalker threatens her life. Ex-detective-turned cowboy, Colt McKnight, agrees to protect Baylie, and he takes her to his secluded ranch. Colt knows Baylie is big trouble when he meets her, and those misfit, magically-blessed animals of hers are added stress. But he soon realizes it's more than his male-sanity at stake when it comes to the seductive witch. Colt tries his best to resist Baylie's charms. but, Baylie knows he never stands a chance. Both learn to trust love again; along with help from her four animals, and fate in the form of a stalker.
Colt shook his head. If he managed to stay sane, he was definitely going to make Jason pay this favor back!
“Can you stand?"
Colt looked at her, his mouth gaping open as she suddenly stood. That damn silky gown flew up her thighs with her movement, and he caught a tantalizing glimpse of bikini panties underneath. He couldn't have stopped the lustful groan had his life depended on it. His groin tightened. He wasn't sure standing was an option at the moment.
"We need to get your wounds cleaned and bandaged." She held out her hand. "Come on, cowboy, I'll help you."
Colt stared at her bare legs, so close to his face, and cleared a throat gone dry. "How did you know I'm a cowboy?" He grimaced. Was that all he could think to say?
She smiled and his heart raced alarmingly.
"You're wearing worn jeans, worn cowboy boots, and your cowboy hat is being flattened underneath Sweet Pea's butt."
"Damn pig!" Colt surged to his feet. He bent down to retrieve his hat and the pig growled at him as she squished it further into the wet ground. Colt jumped back a step and glared down at the offending beast. "Fine," her muttered finally, "Keep it. But you're going to look damn silly trying to wear it."
