Beschreibung

This book was first published by Evernight Publishing in 2014. It has been reformatted and edited.

Welcome to Big Sky County, Montana. Take one look at the men and you’ll agree they’re just as breathtaking as the state’s natural beauty. From ranches to board rooms, in Big Sky County you’ll find men who play hard, sometimes play hard to get, but always seem to find their perfect match.

Sheriff Alex Davis would rather do anything than go for his annual physical. However, his brother died of cancer and his mother is insisting he get checked out to put her mind at ease.

Dr. Eva McQuire is in town just for the summer while she fills in for the regular doctor. She’s been warned that some guys can be picky about having a female doctor, but Alex Davis is acting like a chauvinist. Once he gets a clean bill of health, his next goal is pursuing Eva.

Problem is Eva’s got her dream job waiting for her in Denver. Can their summer fling turn into something permanent or are the doctor and lawman destined only to be long distance lovers?

Chapter 1

It had to be that super moon’s influence on the universe because today everything had gone completely to hell. Well, at least that was Alex’s take on things at McQuire’s café.

He’d been told, Susan, his usual waitress, was out sick with the flu that had been making its way through the population of Thurston. Upon placing his order, he’d also been informed that they’d run out of his favorite sausages. The replacement brand didn’t even come close on taste. Too much sage and not enough thyme, but maybe he was just being picky. His usual scrambled eggs had somehow strangely arrived fried and felt like rubber in his mouth. He shook his head, trying to get the image of rubber bands out of his head. He washed them down with more coffee which wasn’t up to its usual high standard either. Susan’s husband, Mike, was also out sick which explained the sudden decline in McQuire’s culinary standards.

Alex scrapped most of the burned flecks off his toast and let them fall onto the plate. He usually read the local newspaper while he ate, but today the replacement waitress was distracting him each time she walked by his table. So far he hadn’t read a single word or even looked at any of the photos. A woman hadn’t held his attention like this for as long as he could remember. Her pretty, dark hair tied up in a ponytail swung left and right, left and right, almost hypnotizing him as she zoomed by his table either carrying the coffee pot on her way to top up someone’s drink or trying to serve more tables than she could clearly handle. Her cheeks were red and tiny beads of perspiration stood out on her forehead. She swiped them away with the back of her forearm and glanced over at him as if she was fully aware he was observing her.

Quickly looking down at the newspaper, Alex began reading. He smiled because at least the waitress was keeping his mind off his visit to the doctor’s office for his physical. Glancing at his watch, he realized he had only five hours and twenty-four minutes to go until his appointment. He hated anything connected with doctors. Not that he had anything against them personally, but the smell of their offices made his stomach turn. He hated shots and being prodded and poked. Still he had to do it or his mother would hound him or even drag him there herself. Not that he could blame her, losing one son had broken her heart and he wouldn’t let her live through that again. So prodded and poked he’d be.

He took another sip of coffee realizing that part of his fear was what if they found something was actually wrong with him? What if he had the same thing that had killed his baby brother and he’d need surgery, chemo even. David had been through a horrible ordeal and it was something he didn’t ever want to experience for himself.

The waitress walked by again. She had a cute ass as well as face.

That’s it, focus on her and not on what’s going to happen to you this afternoon. Maybe I can convince her to come along to the doctor’s office and hold my hand. He smiled again, being brazen in the fact that only he knew what had brought that grin to his face.

Miss, I asked for biscuits and maybe I’m wrong, but these look like waffles to me, a man shouted at her. He lifted his plate so everyone could see that he wasn’t simply nitpicking.

I’m so sorry. She took the plate for him, zipping by Alex’s table so fast the napkin waved in the wind she’d set up. She looked frustrated and flustered and Alex didn’t have to use his detective skills to figure out that this was her first time doing this sort of work.

Miss, I’ve been waiting fifteen minutes for my order, said one man tapping the face on his watch.

I know and I’m sorry. It’s just we’re sort of rushed off our feet this morning. It’s me and the cook and that’s all.

Miss, I’m waiting to pay, shouted a woman from the front of the café.

I’ll be with you in just a minute, ma’am.

Miss, the cook’s ruined my toast.

Miss, the white of this egg is still runny.

Alex didn’t know about her, but his head was about to explode with everyone calling out to her at the same time. He couldn’t enjoy his meal and newspaper with this much clutter going on around him. He stood.

Miss, you want me to help you out?

She looked at him. She had the most beautiful blue eyes he’d ever seen and freckles over the bridge of her nose. Her face seemed familiar, but he was sure he hadn’t seen her around town
