A Death in Texas: A Book in the Cotton Creek Saga (Heritage #1)
by Ciana Stone
Russell is, for all practical purposes, the patriarch of the family, the glue that holds it together. His five children, now all grown, will one day inherit Heritage and, with luck, will hold it in safe keeping for generations of Walker's to come.
Of late, Russell has found himself trying to figure out which of his children will end up being the next guardian of Heritage. He'd also begun to wonder if he'll ever become a grandfather, and also if his fate is to end up alone. He's been through four marriages and none of them lasted. For years, he's swore he'll never marry again.
He still sticks to that and hasn't been in a relationship in a very long time. All his female companions are casual, or women who know that friends with benefits are all they'll get from Russell. He was fine with that all this time, so why now is he becoming so dissatisfied with life?
Maybe it has something to do with the woman who's in charge of the breeding program for Heritage. Naomie Taylor. She's damn good at what she does. Brilliant, in fact. And hot as a Texas sidewalk in the middle of July. But she works for him and they both have rules about being involved with peopel who work for or with. Not to mention she's much younger.
Still, that doesn't keep him from wondering. Would they be a good match?
Maybe one day he'll find out. For now, Heritage may be in for some troubling times, and danger could likely be in the future for all of them, so Russell and all his family need to be mindful and take care of their own. There's already been one threat against their family, and he doesn't take that lightly.
If someone wants to come for his family, they'll have to go through him first. Walkers take care of their own.
So, love and lust will just have to wait.
At least that's what he tells himself.
