Three's a crowd—except when it's Menage a Trois.
When Lacy Carmichael goes to Sand Creek Dude Ranch for Christmas vacation, she expects to relax and enjoy the great outdoors. Instead, she comes face to face with two old loves. In high school, she loved Matt Cooper. In college, she loved Spence Harper.
Circumstances beyond their control ended their romances, but neither forgot the other. Can their love be rekindled? Can Lacy love two men at the same time? Can two men share one woman?
Lacy removed the cork from the bottle and poured herself a drink. Raising the Styrofoam cup to her mouth, she glanced out the front window of the cabin. Two men were coming across the hill toward the row of buildings. She watched them walk. Something was vaguely familiar. One man was tall and thin with a black cowboy hat sitting on the back of his head. His companion was shorter, with blond hair and broad shoulders. Both men looked extremely comfortable in their western clothes. Tight jeans encased their lower bodies and plaid shirts were tucked into their waistbands. Lacy gulped down the wine and crossed the room to get a better look at the pair.
"I'll be damned!" Her breath caught in her throat as she recognized Spence Harper and Matt Cooper. It's been years! Staring at the men, Lacy searched her memory. She had fallen in love with Spence Harper when they were in college. And Matt Cooper had been her high school sweetheart. Classmates thought they would marry after graduation and Lacy actually believed he was the man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with--until he moved out of state, leaving her wondering and heartbroken.
It had taken her meeting Spence to rid her mind of Matt. Spence was studying law at the university when Lacy enrolled. She had fallen hard for him and the torrid affair they began lasted for almost two years--until Spence graduated and returned to California to the family law firm.
"I have the worst luck with men," she muttered, pouring another glass of wine. She watched the pair disappear from sight and turned to sit on the foot of the bed. Thoughts of being with Brad and Spence and Matt congealed into one tight knot in her stomach. Falling in love and staying in love were two different things. Thank God the affairs had ended before she married any of the men. She grimaced. Though life with Spence or Matt could have been an adventure, of sorts. Both men were athletic and enjoyed swimming and rock climbing. She stifled a shiver. Their bodies were well toned and muscular, tanned from exposure to the sun. It was hard to forget the feel of their skin beneath her hands.
Saddle Creek Dude Ranch might not be such a bad place to spend the holiday season, she thought. At least the distraction of Spence and Matt would surely take her mind off breaking up with Brad.
