The Right One

Today I have RM Alexander on my blog!


Big dreams take strength and determination.

Cami Lockhart’s dream is on the verge of becoming a reality. Lockhart Sanctuary, a refuge for abused and confiscated cats, is what Cami has worked for her entire life. But a dream that big requires a daily commitment. Cami yearns for someone to share the dream with, and knows everyone in town thinks Alex is the perfect man for the job. There’s one problem. She wants fireworks with every kiss, not just a friendship with a hint of something more.

Sometimes what you wish for is closer than you think.

Alex Reynolds shares Cami’s passion for the sanctuary, and at her head ranchhand, spends every day helping her dream come true. He longs to tell Cami she’s held his heart since childhood, but losing a lifetime of friendship is a big risk to take. Being by Cami’s side at the sanctuary is better than letting go, but Alex knows someday he’ll want more.

Risk losing everything or fight for the dreams to come true.

The sanctuary is put in jeopardy when ignored threats take a painful turn. Cami and Alex must each chose to stand and fight, or lose everything they dream of.

Outside, Alex accompanied Cami through the outdoor enclosure, and she noticed how quiet he was. Maybe the apology wasn’t enough. But that’s not like him. She hitched a leg over a fallen tree, knowing she wouldn’t remove it. Regellius and his penmates would have a ball climbing and sharpening their claws against the wood. Natural enrichment was the best. Swinging the other leg, she glanced over a shoulder, catching him watching her, a strange sort of smile and even weirder gaze clouding his eyes. Dropping to the ground, she turned as he strode to the tree and stopped short of hurdling it. 
“Everything okay?”
He shrugged, leaning against the tree with crossed arms. “Why wouldn’t it be?”
“Don’t know. You’re acting ... off. Ever since you came back outside.”
He shook his head. “You ever wonder if there’s something to everyone’s suspicions about us?”
She nearly choked. Where’d that come from? Cami leaned against the tree. “What, Alex, I’m not ...”
“Hey, forget it. Just a question. It’s not important.”
“No, wait. It’s just, we’ve always been friends. I thought that was it for us.”
“Yeah, I know. And you’re right. But sometimes, you’ve got to wonder what everyone is seeing.”
“Do you?”
“Me?” He took his hat off, ran a hand over thick strands of hair. “I guess. Sometimes. I mean, are we missing something?”
“You think we are?”
“Maybe.” Cami backed up as he hurdled over the tree. Alex pushed a hand through her hair, traced a cheek, and her legs wobbled. “Don’t you ever wonder if we’re missing out on something with one another?”
He dropped his head against hers, Cami’s face tingling as he breathed softly against her skin. “Might be worth exploring.”
She smiled with pursed lips. “Alex, what are you doing? This is so not like you.”
“How do you know? Maybe it’s a lot like me.”
“Never with me.”
“Could be with you.”
His lips grazed a cheek, and she shied backwards. “What are you doing?” The words escaped in a hoarse whisper.
He stepped closer, not giving her an inch. “Do you want to find out? With me?”
Something cracked, loud and snapping, in the distance and the trance lifted as they turned toward the house.
“What was that?” Everything in her head felt fogged and jumbled.
Every muscle in his body tensed, and she sensed the change electrifying the space between them.
Alex took her hand. “Sounded like gunfire. Who’d be shooting?”
Her eyes grew wide, the realization hitting her like a ton of bricks. Of course gunfire. She should have recognized it, it was part of her training before the cats came, just in case of the worst. She was no marksman, but no one forgot what a shot sounded like. “The cats.”
