A Real Man: Real Men #1 
A short story

She’s a best-selling erotica author, scarred by life. She’s  sworn off men.
He’s a rancher and an army reserve soldier. He’s NOT into city girls.

Tabby Grey was still shocked out of her mind she’d become a top-selling erotica author, overnight. Take that, you jerk of an ex-fiancé. But she’s sworn off men. And sex, despite her hot-as-hell book.

Cole Dawson thought it was going to be a short job. Prop cowboy. Hell, he could do that. Anything to take his mind off his dad’s surgery and the very real possibility of losing their family’s home–the BC ranch. Until he met Tabby. And fell. Hard.

But when rugged Cole Dawson shows up for Tabby’s book-signing tour and doesn’t make a move except for being himself–reliable, decent and able to deal with all the craziness that happens on tour swiftly and successfully–it’s game over. She should do something. Anything. Because the tour is over tomorrow–and then it’s ba-bye.

Because she’s hiding a secret. One she can’t bear for the man she’s head over cowboy-boot heels in love with to find out. It would simply do her in. Because if he knows–will he stay?
