Dominic โ€œBullโ€ Walker is used to the simpler things in life. Give him his own land to work, a strong horse, and twelve hours of daylight, and he is a contented man. But when someone threatens to take away the successful ranch that took him two years to rebuild, heโ€™ll accept any help he can get to defend it.

Mandel โ€œFoxโ€ Tucker is a sixth-generation SWAT soldier. Itโ€™s embedded in his bones to protect and serve his community. So when he gets word of the vandalism occurring on the Walker Ranch, he quickly volunteers the free time he has, thanks to his recent suspension.

The brief visit Fox had with Bull four months ago had been a contentiousโ€”but powerfulโ€”encounter. Therefore, heโ€™s not surprised when he shows up on his doorstep unannounced and has to pull out some of his best tricks to get past the six-foot-four, stubborn Texan.

Fox is only there to safeguard whatโ€™s most important to Bull. But being on the ranch brings an awareness to him that he embraces with both hands. Nature, peaceโ€ฆ loveโ€”things he never found in the city.

โ€œHiโ€ was all he could manage to sigh. His heart beat fast as Diablo made a nickering sound and nudged in a bit more until his eye was almost level with his. โ€œYouโ€™re so big. What kind of horse are you?โ€

โ€œHeโ€™s an Arabian gelding.โ€ Bullโ€™s voice came from behind him, and Fox hadnโ€™t noticed someone had crept up on him. Maybe if itโ€™d been someone dangerous or someone he didnโ€™t like, Diablo probably wouldโ€™ve reacted the same way he had this afternoon.

โ€œHe seems to like you,โ€ Fox whispered to Bull as he leaned against his back and ran his steady hand up Diabloโ€™s forehead.

โ€œIt was a while before he let me touch him. A lot longer than it took you. He likes you tooโ€ฆ very much.โ€ Bullโ€™s lips danced against his temple as he spoke. His melodic voice calmed Foxโ€™s racing heart so much that he leaned back into Bullโ€™s firm chest.

โ€œHow do you know he likes me?โ€ Fox breathed.

Bull slid his other hand that wasnโ€™t petting Diablo up Foxโ€™s stomach, causing the muscles to quiver until he got to his right pec. โ€œBecause you feel it right hereโ€ฆ donโ€™t you?โ€

Fox swallowed.

โ€œHeโ€™s feeling that way too,โ€ Bull whispered. โ€œThat noise he was makingโ€ฆ he hasnโ€™t made that sound with me. It means he likes how you were touching him.โ€

Fox smiled from the inside out. โ€œI want to ride him.โ€

Bull chuckled. โ€œSo do I. But thatโ€™ll be up to Diablo. He was an endurance racer for a few years, even won a few ribbons. But when he stopped placing in competitions at all, he got sold and ended up with a pretty nasty owner. Itโ€™s gonna take a little while for him to trust anyone again.โ€ Bull kissed Fox lightly on the back of the head. โ€œThough youโ€™re doing a good job. Even I havenโ€™t been able to touch him like this. I think itโ€™s because youโ€™re here and the way youโ€™re reacting to me.โ€

โ€œWow. They can sense all that?โ€

โ€œMost definitely.โ€

โ€œI know I can ride him.โ€

โ€œWell, right now he wonโ€™t even let me put a blanket on him, much less a saddle,โ€ Bull said almost sadly.

Fox stared into Diabloโ€™s eyes, feeling something shifting inside his soul. โ€œMaybe I can.โ€
