What a Texas Girl Wants by Kristina Knight

Please welcome Kristina Knight to the blog today with her new release What a Texas Girl Dreams and be sure to check out her other western romances as well!

Monica Witte has life the way she likes it. She comes home to be babied every few months and the rest of the time she has no strings holding her back. But after her horse is injured in a rodeo performance, Monica knows it's time to come home and face her family – warts and all.

Trickett Samuels works best on his own. The large-animal vet likes his quiet life in the Texas countryside. When Monica Witte blows into town, demanding a quick fix to her horse's big issues, his life is turned upside down. Trickett doesn't understand Monica's need to perform before perfect strangers or why she wants to keep the truth of their relationship from her family. And the more he gets to know her, the more he wonders if he can convince this Texas girl that having roots will only help her soar higher.


“Kiss me.”
“Trick...” She flicked a glance at him from under her lashes.
“Live dangerously, Mon. Kiss me, in the middle of the parking lot. Where anyone could see us.” His hand snaked out to capture hers, linking their fingers together. He leaned forward, his lips a breath away from hers. “Dare you.”
Monica swayed. Trick’s gray gaze twinkled in the twilight, and he grinned.
“You know you want to,” he whispered the words in her ear as his thumb drew intricate designs on the back of her palm.
She did want to. That kiss in the back of her horse trailer had started a hot burning in her stomach that still hadn’t faded a day later. It had blazed hotter the moment their gazes had met in the bar mirror, and now that Trick was mere inches from her, it threatened to consume her.
She wanted him. So badly.
There were no trucks on the road, no windows for the bar patrons to look through, no sound from the bar at all, since she’d followed him out the front door. Why not tempt fate, just a little?
Maybe, if someone saw, it would help her get control of this burning urge to be with Trick.
And if they didn’t, maybe one more night with him would ease the ache.
Monica reached up on her toes, the slick soles of her boots sliding a little against the gravel at her feet. She placed both hands on his shoulders, feeling hot, tight muscle beneath the thin cotton of his bright, red tee with Lockhardt Veterinary Services printed over his left pec. A light musk of beer hung in the air between them, but alcohol didn’t cloud his gray gaze and Monica had barely taken a sip of her beverage.
“I won’t kiss you because I’ve had a drink,” she said, nipping at his full, lower lip. “I won’t kiss you because you dared me.” She licked her lips, slow, and watched as his pupils dilated. “I’ll kiss you because it’s what I’ve wanted to do since the night I backed into your truck. Even after I left for that damned Utah rodeo all I could think about was you.”
