eBook Description: One rope. Three days. And two hearts on the line. Justin has had enough. Ella, the woman who healed his broken heart, has been cancelling on him for two months straight. Sure, she's busy with her job, which has her traveling far and wide. But that never stopped her from sharing nights of trivia, long conversations and blazing hot sex--until now. Truth to tell, he misses their easy friendship, the way her sighs fill his ear as he fills her body. What he can't figure out is, what's changed? At work, Ella finds it easy to talk to rooms full of strangers. Once back at her lonely apartment, though, she's back to her painfully shy self--until Justin. Their chance meeting grew over the months into a year-long affair, but she can't shake the feeling that rejection and pain are just around the corner. Best thing to do? End it now, before their intimacy digs too deep. Suddenly he's at her door with a length of neon-green rope and a naughty proposition, daring her to say no. Just how good could it be? There's only one way to find out? Warning: The sheets are tangled, the hat is crumpled, and the jeans are worn low on the hips. The cowboy is hot, determined, and helpless in the face of bunny slippers. Readers may need extra batteries to get this one out of their system.

"It's so dark out here."
"Yeah. I like it. Quiet too. I don't think I could live in the city for a long period of time."
They were on the small two-lane road headed toward his place. About ten miles back, Justin had pulled off the highway and begun the last leg of the road trip. He'd been driving something close to twenty hours, but given the woman at his side, it was worth every bit of tired eyes and aching ass from having been awake and sitting too damn long.
He could get home in the dark. He knew this road so well. Three more bumps in the pavement and he turned left onto the dirt lane leading up to the house. It was about a quarter-mile to his front door.
"How long have you lived out here?" Ella asked, staring out her window.
"All my life. I bought this part of the property and some cattle from my parents. It still runs as one big operation, but I keep whatever profit I make on this side. I usually just put it back into the upkeep."
The outline of the small clapboard house loomed ahead, and he parked the truck in front. There was no designated driveway or parking area and that was just fine with him. "Here we are. Home sweet home."
Ella leaned forward in her seat a little and squinted out the windshield. "Well from what I can see, it's a pretty little house."
"You'll see the outside tomorrow. Tonight though..." Justin turned off the ignition and climbed down out of the truck. He tried not to sound like a girl when he hit the ground and his legs wanted to give out as soon as he stood. He bent and flexed and reached as he stretched his body out. He loved his truck, but damn...
He walked around the front end to the passenger side and opened Ella's door. She turned to the side with her feet dangling over the edge of the seat. "Bunny slippers? Really?" Justin shook his head, but the smirk was firmly in place as he looked down at Ella's feet clad, not in the cute pink sandals she'd been wearing earlier, but in a pair of gray bunny slippers, complete with floppy bunny ears and what looked like a cotton tail at the back of the heel.
"Yes. Things were getting too serious in the truck there for a while."
"I know." And he did.
