Whistle Stop is abuzz...the mayoral election is just weeks away.
Candidate Mason Noble has a vested interest in fast-tracking the town’s revitalization project. But the votes he’d counted on are drying up because his engagement to Bella Nez ended abruptly. The local grapevine is humming with rumors, but only he and Bella know the truth. And they aren’t talking!
When an emergency puts Bella in the proverbial tough spot, she needs money and fast. There’s only one person who can help—Mason. He agrees to a loan, but he has a condition. He needs Bella by his side again. A reconciliation would win over the townspeople—and it would give him a chance to win back the only woman he’s ever loved.
Bella hesitates to accept Mason’s terms. Until she’s blindsided by unexpected news that has her rethinking everything. Bella is expecting a baby, and there’s a heart-wrenching choice to be made…

The outer door swung open. Bella rushed into the reception area looking as beautiful as ever. The breath caught in Mason’s throat. Was it possible she’d realized she’d made a mistake by walking away from him?
Bella’s gaze darted around the room until it paused on him. Instead of a smile, her glossy pink lips were pressed into a firm line. His hopes were immediately dashed.
Mason released the man’s hand. “Bella—”
“Do you have a minute to talk?” Her gaze implored him to agree, stifling the refusal teetering on the tip of his tongue. She wrung her hands. “It’s important or I wouldn’t ask.”
“Listen, if this is about the wedding…” Realizing that might sound like he was referring to their dashed nuptials, he added, “Cord and Alexis’s wedding—”
“It’s not that.”
Mason glanced at Mr. Garza, who wore a puzzled expression. Bella’s visit couldn’t have come at a worse time. Mason turned back to her. “Now’s not a good time. I have an appointment.”
She glanced at Mr. Garza. “I’m sorry to interrupt. I wouldn’t be here if this wasn’t urgent.” Her complexion was decidedly pale. “I just came from the hospital and…and we have to talk.”
After the way she’d walked out on him, refusing to stand by him when he needed her most, he didn’t feel compelled to accommodate her. But he just couldn’t ignore her mention of the hospital. Bella didn’t have many people in town she would turn to in times of trouble. If there was something wrong with her, he’d do his best to help.
He was torn. His pending business with Mr. Garza was quite urgent. But the worry reflected in Bella’s eyes tore at him. No matter what had gone down between them, she could still get to him.
With great trepidation, he turned to Mr. Garza. “Could you wait just a couple of minutes?”
The man didn’t look happy, not at all, but after a moment’s hesitation, he nodded.
“I’ll be right with you.” Then Mason turned to Bella. “Let’s talk in my office.” Turning to his assistant, he said, “Teresa, could you please get Mr. Garza something to drink?” When she nodded, he added, “Thank you.”
Mason followed Bella to his office, doing his best to ignore the gentle sway of her hips. They may have broken up, but apparently his libido hadn’t gotten the message. He still found her as attractive as he had the first time he’d asked her out.
He cleared his throat. “I’m assuming you’re not here because you’ve changed your mind about us.” When she glanced away and shook her head, he continued. “So what’s so urgent, and what does it have to do with the hospital?”
A MOMENT TO LOVE
Series: A Whistle Stop Romance, book 1
The notorious cowboy meets his match…
Cord Lawson instantly distrusted the young woman in a smart suit who’d just arrived in Whistle Stop. She was very pretty and clearly a city girl—but with memories of his failed marriage still darkening his mind, he’s determined to steer clear! But she’s sniffing around his land—land that had been in his family for generations. There was no way he’d let it go—even if the bank was threatening to foreclose, and selling could give Whistle Stop a new lease on life.
Alexis Greer had one mission in mind—close the deal on the Granger estate; without it, her father’s land development company would go bankrupt. But the word around town is to keep clear of Cord and to stay away from his precious land. What in the world had happened to cause such a handsome cowboy to live such a solitary existence? However, determination was Lexi’s middle name, and she just had to keep on trying to breach Cord’s barriers, appeal somehow to his head and heart—even if it put her in danger of losing both of hers…to him.
