Publisher's Summary

Success for Marc Ryder means riding out eight seconds on the back of an angry rodeo bull and avoiding getting roped into a relationship with the pretty women she meets along the way. She's exactly the type of wild and reckless person artist Bridgette LeRoy has avoided since the senseless death of her brother. But circumstances throw them together, and Bridgette is drawn into a tumultuous ride of attraction, passion, and denial. When she realizes it's the only way to protect her battered heart, Bridgette's desperate mission to stop Marc's suicidal return to the rodeo becomes a race in which every second counts.

    "Sometimes it Just Takes One"

    Marc is a bronc and bull rider; Brigitte is an artist and art instructor; they're hot for each other but Brigitte lost her beloved older brother to the bulls in the streets of Pamploma, Spain. So then she must escape her feelings for Marc, and thus she runs away, never bothering to enlighten Marc as to the reason; I mean seriously why would she (Marc) want or need the reason that she's being shunned. This would seem to be a bit unfair, not to mention counter productive but that isn't addressed, added to this is that Brigitte runs hot and cold, seemingly unable to love her or lose her. Finally she realizes that she, unfortunately, and yes she says it just that way to Marc, loves her. Then she throws in the whiner's last resort, emotionally blackmailing Marc by using the phrase; "if you love you'll" fill in the blank. In this case it's not ride the bull today. Never mind that this is a last minute request from Brigitte a woman who has treated her badly, even though Marc gave her a fortune in art to sell, a move that in essence saved Brigitte's job at the local university; along with the jobs of several of her colleagues. Then comes Brigitte's clinching line; "if you ride today, we're done." In about twelve hours Marc's expected to ride; she has committed to this, her sponsors are counting on her, her agent is counting on her, other females who might one day be interested in following in her footsteps are counting on her. Oh well the hell with all that, Brigitte who has treated her like something she needs to wipe off her shoe has given her the ultimatum and so she'll not not only quit and break all the commitments she's made, at literally the last second; she'll be happy about it and can't wait 'til she can be with Brigitte.
    The only reason I didn't quit listening at this juncture is because it all occurred in about the last three minutes. I gave it one star and would have liked to have been able to give it less.
