What people are saying about Midnight Ride!
“Packs a powerful emotional punch…this tale will take readers for an enjoyable ride.” Publishers Weekly
“Johnson is a master at pushing boundaries, and the opening of her Midnight Cowboys series is no exception.” RT Book Reviews
One hard-working widow…Widowed rancher Janie Smithwick is too busy paying off her debts to play rodeo with a reckless young cowboy like Tyler—no matter how hot he gets her…
One midnight ride they’ll never forget…As a rule, Janie should be dating a man her own age, like her handsome neighbor Rohn—not the twenty-four-year old ranch hand he employs. But once Tyler gets Janie alone—held tight in his arms, pressed against his hard muscled body, burning with desire—the widow realizes that some rules, like broncos, are meant to be broken…
Enjoy this EXCERPT from MIDNIGHT RIDE by Cat Johnson
Rene blew out a slow whistle as she stared across the field. “Oh. My. God. That man riding on that big old John Deere might be the hottest thing I’ve seen in a real long time.”
Janie followed Rene’s stare to where Tyler was cutting the hayfield. She would admit, the view was nice, but she had to think the hottest thing she’d seen lately was the heat in Tyler’s eyes as he came busting into her kitchen, intent on kissing her, and more, if he hadn’t gotten that text from home.
Although even hotter was the dream that had woken her just before midnight. It was hard enough to fall to sleep with Tyler and his visit on her mind, never mind being tantalized by him in her sleep.
In her dreams, he didn’t kiss her and leave her wanting the way he had for three nights straight. He stayed, and damn, things got hot. Molten. Just like her insides when he was around. In her dreams, he took her on a midnight ride that had her waking sweaty, her body still clenching around his, even though he’d only been there in her mind.
Rene was probably expecting some kind of response, so Janie wrestled her attention back to the present. “He is a good-looking guy.”
“Good-looking doesn’t even begin to cover it.” Rene shook her head. “Jesus, Janie. I don’t know how you get anything done with him here and looking so fine.”
“He’s not around all that often.” Janie had to think how that was a shame.
Rene sighed. “I guess that’s a good thing.”
Janie glanced at her friend. “You mean because of times like right now when we’re both ignoring your daughter, my student, because we’re too busy watching Tyler drive my tractor?”
“Eh, she’s only cooling down the horse.” Rene waved off Janie’s concern with a hand. “She’ll be fine.”
Shaking her head, Janie forced herself to turn back to face the ring. “That’s good, Khriste. You can bring her back to the barn. I’ll help you unsaddle her and then we’ll hose her down. Okay?”
“Can’t Tyler help me, like he did the last time?”
“We’d all love to have Tyler come and help like the last time, sweetie.” Rene shot Janie a knowing glance. “But it looks like he’s busy working right now.”
“I wish I could ride in the tractor with him. It looks like fun.”
“It sure does. Doesn’t it, Aunt Janie?” Rene’s words were heavy with suggestion. “Wouldn’t riding with Tyler be fun?”
Out of the mouths of babes . . .
“I’m sure.” Janie shot her friend a glance.
