The Cowboy’s Claim

Chapter One

It was perfect riding weather at Tillbridge Horse Stable. All Tristan Tillbridge needed was a horse and some time to enjoy the morning.

He had plenty of horses, but based on the number of what-the-hells ganging up for his attention, enjoyment wasn’t on his schedule anytime soon.

He dropped his black-booted foot from the bottom rail of the white ladder fence circling the small arena where a blond horse trainer exercised Moonlight Joy, a golden creamy-maned palomino. “So you were driving the back road last night and found the south pasture gate wide-open?”

“Yeah.” Mace Calderone stood beside him. His brown deputy’s hat cast a shadow over his bronze face. “The winds from the rainstorm could have caused it.”

“Or someone left it that way.” Tristan stripped off his tan Rough Rider work gloves, flipped up the shirttail of his navy pull over and stuffed the gloves in his back jeans pocket. “The staff knows the

‘close every gate’ rule, but everyone else can’t read a damn sign.

Since the guesthouse and cottages opened on the property six months ago, stopping them from breaking, trampling or opening things they shouldn’t is becoming a full -time job.”

Next to the one he already had as stable manager.

“I hear you. These days it seems like rules are considered more of a suggestion than a requirement.” Mace glanced over his shoulder.

“Looks like you got a stray.”

On the wide dirt and gravel path leading from the stable farther behind them, a woman with long dark curly hair wearing oversize aviator sunglasses talked animatedly on her cell .

As she threw up her hand in frustration over something the person on the line told her, the front of her cropped yellow blazer opened wider revealing a snowy-white, fitted top. Matching skinny jeans molded to her long legs. Each step forward brought her and her red high-heeled boots—designer, no doubt—closer to fresh horse shit.

Mace turned to watch. “Five bucks she saves the shoes.”

“Ten, she doesn’t.”

She swerved right and Mace grinned. “Instead of cash, you can pay me with a beer this weekend.”

“That’s fine, but I won’t be the one buying.”

The woman veered left, still talking on her phone and digging into her large red purse.

Mace’s smile disappeared. “She really isn’t paying attention.”

“Told you.” But not even the sure win of a bet could let Tristan stand by and watch what would probably be the worst part of her day unfold.

He and Mace called out at the same time. “Hey! Look out!”

But too absorbed in her conversation, she traipsed ahead...right into the steaming fresh pile. As she skidded forward, the phone flew out of her hand and after a few long breath-holding seconds of teetering on her heels, she final y caught her balance.

Mace winced. “That could have been ugly. I’ll make sure she’s okay. Unless you’re interested. She’s cute.”

Sunglasses pushed up on her head, the woman bent down and retrieved her cell . As she stood straight, she alternated between shaking the dirtied boot on her foot and glancing at the bottom of it with a grossed-out expression.

Interested in a woman who wore high heels to a stable, and from a distance, faintly resembled his deceased father’s spoiled, devious second wife? Yeah, he’d pass. “I have a meeting in a few minutes.

She’s all yours.”

The two-way radio clipped to Mace’s tactical belt crackled to life.

“Calling all units in the southeast. Multiple reports of traffic backing up on Colton Road at the interstate exit. Motorists need assistance.”

He clicked a button on his shoulder mic. “Dispatch. Unit seven in route.” Mace looked to Tristan. “You’ll have to help her out.”

“I’m not the one wearing the badge. Rescuing people is your job.”

“I would, but duty calls. You can tell me her name later.” Mace clapped him on the back, then strode to his patrol car parked in the grass on the other side of the ring.

Tristan headed to the woman. Why couldn’t people just obey the multiple signs on the paved trail from the guesthouse that stated: No visitors allowed at the stable until 10:00 a.m. on Mondays.

“I can’t believe this.” The woman glanced up at Tristan while gingerly scraping the sole of her boot on the ground. “Is this stuff literal y everywhere—even in the main areas?”
