Friday First Kiss #116 :: A Cowboy’s Heart by Vicki Lewis Thompson (Contemporary Western Romance)

Friday First Kiss

The moment I crack open a new book, I always rush through the beginning, the budding relationship between the hero and heroine, and anticipate that spontaneous moment when one of them makes their move. The First Kiss. The first turning point in every story.

Every week here on the blog, I’ll be sharing First Kisses from my books and those of other authors.


This week’s Friday First Kiss comes from,

A Cowboy’s Heart by Vicki Lewis Thompson

 “I just have one more thing to say.”
“What’s that?”
“This.” Stepping toward him, Nicole stood on tiptoe, cupped the back of his head and pulled him down for a kiss, knocking off his hat in the process.
Bryce was so startled that she caught him with his mouth open and she took advantage of that. Her lips were warm and sweet to start with, but then she began to explore with her tongue. Oh, yeah. Cradling her head in both hands, he shifted the angle and began to participate.
Her soft whimper fired his blood and he delved deeper. So good. So very, very—
Gasping, she wiggled out of his grasp. “Just…wanted to…leave you with…that thought.” She backed away, her chest heaving.
He struggled for air as he watched her walk to her truck. A cool breeze caressed his damp mouth. She started the engine, backed out and drove away. He continued to stand there, dazed by the impact of that kiss. He couldn’t have moved if a bear had been coming right for him. Okay, maybe if a grizzly had shown up.

Burned by love…

When Bryce McGavin was left at the altar, he hung up his guitar for good. Music can’t live in a broken heart. But now his brother Zane is getting married and wants Bryce to play for the ceremony. Bryce isn’t up to the challenge. He’s in no condition to perform, let alone at a wedding. And then a woman with the voice of an angel walks into his bar.

Nicole Williams just inherited a renovated Victorian and a cranky cat. Her new life in Eagles Nest fits her to a tee, especially after she sends her cat-hating, overbearing fiancé packing, and starts singing at the Guzzling Grizzly. She’s on the rebound, so she has no business falling for a sexy cowboy, especially one with emotional scars who turned his back on his music. But oh, when he pulls her into his arms, rational thought goes out the window. He’s even winning over her cat.

They say that music soothes the savage beast, but can it mend a cowboy’s broken heart?
