His Foxy Lady

The Shifters of Sanctuary
Jim Halsey was a champion bull rider before injury cut his career short and he was forced to find a new way to pay the bills. Wrangling the rescues at The Sanctuary wasn’t his dream job, but he found the work fulfilled a need he hadn’t known was there. He just needed the same good fortune to smile on his personal life.

Koda finding happiness with Ella, had Jim longing for a family of his own. The problem: Jim had nothing to offer a woman. He’s a washed up bull rider whose only possessions are his clothes, a ten-year-old pickup, and a box full of buckles. Not exactly a starter kit for happily ever after.

Army Combat Nurse Nicolette Hendrix knew first hand time didn’t heal all wounds. Her soul shattered the day her best friend bled out in her arms. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have the luxury of wallowing in grief. However, her damaged psyche demands peace. In the middle of nowhere Montana, Nikki finds more than acceptance, a new job, and a family friendly town in which to raise her daughter, she finds… him.

A whiff of his scent and an innocent touch is all it takes to fall in love with the cowboy. Will Jim accept her as his mate, especially after things get a little...hairy?

Story Excerpt

Jim let down the tailgate of his truck and reached for the bag of feed. He picked it up and tossed it onto his shoulder. He carried it into the barn dropping it against the wall just inside the open doors where Max would see it when he showed up after school. He went to grab the other bag when he noticed a black Mini Cooper with red racing stripes making its way up the long drive. Jim caught himself shaking his head at the sight. What kind of moron drove a car like that in a place like Montana? A tiny, front-wheel drive sports car the size of a go-cart wasn’t practical nor safe to drive in the treacherous winter conditions.

The Mini parked in front of Dakoda’s cabin just as the front door opened. Koda and Ella stepped from the house. With one hand at the small of Ella’s back and the other holding her right hand, Koda helped his extremely pregnant wife down the steps while she shot him an annoyed eye-roll. Jim snickered. Ella was the most independent woman he’d ever met. She wasn’t a fan of Koda’s overprotective coddling and more often than not let him know exactly how she felt about it.

The little car’s engine turned off and the driver’s side door opened. A woman, quite possibly the tiniest woman he’d ever seen, exited the vehicle. That explained the go-cart sized car, Jim mused. She probably couldn’t see over the dash of the average car, let alone a pickup.

Koda and Ella met the woman at the front of her car and shook hands before she went around to the passenger side. She opened the door and a precious blond-haired girl jumped out. Jim realized this had to be the new hire, Nicolette Hendrix. The woman turned, and his breath caught.

Jim studied her from his vantage point. She was the most strikingly beautiful woman he’d ever laid eyes. She had softly tanned skin. The rich caramel color was pure perfection and urged him to lick it to see if it tasted as sweet as it looked. Her thick brown hair looked like it was highlighted with gold from the sun and fell in a riot of cork screw curls around her shoulders and down her back. He couldn’t tell what color her eyes were from where he stood, but her lips, however, were another matter. They were pale pink and plump. He couldn’t wait to admire them up close and personal. Just when he thought she couldn’t be any more beautiful, she smiled. Transforming from gorgeous-to-radiant in the blink of an eye. Fuck it all to hell. She had dimples. He was doomed.

An ache in his groin pulled him from his lustful thought. He adjusted himself and shook his head, confused by the visceral reaction. This was ridiculous. He’d seen beautiful women before. Had sex with a few of them. Okay, maybe not as beautiful as this woman, but come on. He hadn’t been a horny teenage who got hard when the wind blew in the right direction for a long damn time. He needed to get a grip on his randy libido.

He groaned when Koda waved him over. He hoped nobody noticed his predicament. He tried to think of every horrendous visual he could as he made his way across the yard. The way his arm looked after his accident. Decomposing corpses. Granny porn. By the time he walked up he had his dick somewhat under control.

“Jim. I’d like you to meet the newest addition to The Sanctuary.”

Ella muttered something that sounded like, we really need to change the name. Which was probably exactly what she said. Ella Stone was anything but shy on how she felt about the name of their little slice of wildlife heaven.

Koda sent his wife a bit of side shade then continued, “Jim. Nicolette Hendrix. Nikki. Jim Halsey. Jim’s worked with us for a few years now. He lives on the property, so you’ll see him around a lot.”

Jim reached out and took Nicolette’s outstretched hand and the innocent touch was all it took. A tingle ran up his arm and straight to his groin. His unruly cock went hard once again. Nicolette gasped, and a blush stole across her cheeks. She jerked her hand away as if she’d been burned. At least he wasn’t the only one affected.
