Banyon Pride Series: Book Three
Will Emerald lose the one she loves the most when the handsome billionaire rancher finds out her secret?
When cowboy Shadow Banyon comes home to his family’s Arkansas ranch after a long stint as a medical doctor in West Africa, he finds out the secret Emerald Newman has kept from him for thirteen years—he has a teenaged son.
Emerald is in deep turmoil. What will be Shadow’s reaction? Will he break her son Denim’s heart? Will Shadow disown his son, who moves in with his father at the ranch, and head back to Africa to escape and continue his medical practice? Or will Shadow remain in Arkansas at his family’s Rocking B Ranch and marry the blond bombshell now hanging on his arm? The blond declares she’s Shadow’s fiancé. If Shadow and his self-absorbed fiancé marry, will she accept Emerald’s son in his father’s world?
And why does Emerald’s heart still skip beats every time she’s near Shadow Banyon? Will Shadow, with his exciting lifestyle on the large ranch, lure her son away?
Emerald buys a Bed & Breakfast Inn near Mulberry, Arkansas, only three miles from the prestigious Banyon Ranch. She tells herself it’s only so she can be close to her son Denim. But being close to her son now means being close to Shadow Banyon.
Then one day, Shadow and Emerald share a fiery kiss, tearing her safe world apart. How can Emerald stay near Shadow now, knowing her heart will shatter in pieces when he marries the rich blond woman? But how can Emerald sell her B & B Inn and leave Arkansas’ River Valley when her son Denim refuses to go with her and begs to remain with his dad?
