He never imagined her heart would be so hard to reach.


Forced into a marriage of convenience after her husband dies, Amanda Haynes is determined she will never love again. Not that it bothers Brandon Miller. He needs her husband’s cattle. She needs financial stability and long-term support for her son and herself. But she never expected to care so much about the running of the ranch.


Butting heads over the decisions of the ranch, only adds to her frustration. Her wellbeing is soon threatened as their lives become entangled with Billy the Kid and his gang.


What has she gotten herself into? What kind of man has she married? Is there any way out?



A Convenient Risk Excerpt Six
She snuggled Samuel closer to her chest, placing a hand behind his head and pressing his little
face into the crook of her neck. He didn’t need to see. No, she couldn’t let him see as the two men
scooped dirt onto his father’s casket.

“Mama, you’re hurting me,” came the muffled little voice.

She loosened her grip. And guilt slammed into hershe had caused enough pain, enough grief.
No more. And certainly not for Samuel. He was everything.

“The next few days will be hard, Mrs. Haynes. Don’t expect anything different. You will have to
find a new normal. Life as you knew it is gone.”

Amanda nodded numbly as she pressed a kiss to the side of Samuel’s head. New normal. What
did that mean? What was normal? Her husband had been ill for near three months. She had watched
him waste away. And her child watched his father suffer until death released him.

Shouldn’t they welcome a new normal? But Amanda would give anything to have Jed back. Not
to hear his voice, or feel his arms one more time, but to know that everything was going to be all
right. Was that selfish? Because right now, the future looked grim. How was she to care for Samuel?
For herself? For the ranch?

The preacher stopped in front of Amanda’s cart. They stood in silence for several moments.
