Please say hello to Hurri Cosmo and
Then Sawyer Happened
Trace is nursing a broken heart. He lost his job, his boyfriend of two years was cheating on him, and his apartment building burned right to the ground with all his worldly possessions. It was time for Trace to get out of Minnesota. So Trace heads for Texas and Riven Creek Ranch, the horse farm his aunt Lois owns. But hours before he arrives, Lois is in a terrible car accident that nearly takes her life, and Trace finds himself in charge of the ranch kitchen. Sounds simple enough and it's the least he can do for his recuperating aunt.
Then Sawyer happens.
Sawyer is his aunt's big, beautiful, muscle bound, incredibly sexy straight ranch manager. Someone who has no clue Trace is gay. And meeting the big man should have been okay, except it was in the middle of his aunt's kitchen at five in the morning and Trace was nearly naked. Embarrassing? Yep. But the very next day Trace proceeded to ramp up his embarrassment by quantum leaps when he nearly sets his aunt's house on fire and the brooding Sawyer has to come to the rescue.
Seems like Trace's "luck" followed him.
Not to mention that Aunt Lois's "accident" was actually attempted murder. And now, they just might want Trace dead, too.
Can Trace figure out who's behind the attempts on his aunt's life AND keep Sawyer from finding out he's hot for the cowboy? He probably can’t. But he’s going to try.
Sawyer took the card and glanced at it, then glared back at Trace. “Why do you have this?”
“He…he gave it to Aunt Lois. She gave it to me.”
“Oh. I see. That’s okay then.”
“What? Why? What’s wrong?”
“I just thought…never mind. There’s no reason for you to get involved in this.”
“Are you kidding me? It’s my aunt and her ranch. Of course I’m going to get involved!” Damn it. Sawyer was still trying to cut him out of things. Here he had been thinking he was winning the man over but that was obviously not the case.
“That’s not what…just let me handle this, okay? Just stay away from this detective.”
“Stay away? Look, I don’t have any problem with you handling it,” Trace made air quotes with his fingers as he said those words, “with the detective. The man creeps me out, anyway. But you are not leaving me out on this. Lois is my aunt, my only living relative. And I’m not going anywhere.”
Sawyer sighed. “I know she’s your aunt. I’m not trying to cut you out of anything. I’m just trying to keep things running smoothly until Lois comes home. She told me… I need to keep you… Just let me handle it. I promise to keep you in the loop. Okay?” He pocketed the card.
Trace didn’t know what to say. Had his aunt told Sawyer to keep him safe? Was that what the big man was going to say? Why the fuck did he think there was anything personal? Shit! His run away stupid heart just never gave up, did it? Damn it. Well, it was fine. He was determined to stick around long enough to get his aunt home anyway. He would see what happened after that. “Fine,” Trace said and nodded once.

About the author:
Hurri Cosmo lives in Minnesota where she holds tight to the idea that there, where it’s cold a good part of the year, she won’t age as fast. Yep, she avoids the truth as much as she avoids mirrors. But one of the reasons she loves writing is reality doesn’t always offer up a “happily ever after” and being able to take control of that is a powerful lure. Being a happy ending junkie, writing just makes them easier to find. Oh, she doesn’t mind “real life” and she does try to at least keep it in mind when she writes her stories, but she truly loves creating a wonderful couple, knowing they will fall in love and have their HEA. Every - single - time. And, of course, that is exactly the reason she loves reading this genre, too. Give her a glass of red wine, some dark chocolate, and her computer, whether she is reading or writing, and she will entertain herself for hours. The fact she actually gets paid to do it is Snickers bars on the frosting on the cake.
