Trusting Drew: Someone is trying to skew the results of the beauty pageant.
Lily Smith is kidnapped and held captive to prevent her from participating. But she is no passive little miss to let someone else determine her future. Unfortunately, during her flight, she hits her head on a rock and can’t remember her own name, let alone why she is running through the Colorado mountains barefoot with no coat.
Drew Kipling rides to the rescue of the pretty woman who needs to get warm and have her injuries taken care of. When she can’t remember her name, he vows to protect her, until she knows who she can trust.
What will they find at the pageant? More trouble or the love of a lifetime? Maybe both.
Join Lily and the Kipling family as they take New York City by storm and show them the cowboy way is the only way to catch a scoundrel.
“She groaned and tried to open her eyes. “Head hurts.”
He knelt down beside her, keeping his weapon behind him and the first aid kit by his side. He pushed the hair back on her forehead and saw the gash that had been causing the bleeding. It wasn’t deep, but head wounds always bled like a mother.
“You’ve got a small cut on your forehead.”
She groaned, still not opening her eyes. “No, hurts in back.”
He rolled her slightly and found a knot on the back of her head, easily the size of a baseball. “Oh yeah, you’ve got a knot.”
She shivered, so he pulled off his coat to wrap around her. He needed to get her somewhere warm, her skin was cold to the touch, and she’d lost blood. He wondered how long she’d been out in the cold. At this altitude and with the breeze it wouldn’t take long for her to get hypothermia. Drew weighed the cold against her head injury and the cold won. They were a long way from the house, he’d been riding close to an hour, but one of the cabins they had for temporary winter housing was close by.”
