And, now that the business part of this post is over with, time for the fun stuff - a little teaser from Texas, courtesy of Monica and Trick:
Monica measured him for a long moment. "Is this need for a grown-up relationship behind your diagnosis of my horse?"
He took a step forward. "My diagnosis of Jinx has nothing to do with your phobias and everything to do with his well-being."
"Because if he really can't race any longer, I'll just train another horse."
"God, you're so frustrating." He took her by the shoulders and turned her around so she could see her horse in the paddock. "Look at him. He's exhausted, and that's part of it, but really look. He's not putting any pressure on that back leg unless he absolutely has to. He's done, Mon."
Her shoulders shook under his hands. Trick wanted to gather her to him, but he knew she wouldn't accept a simple hug. Kisses and lovemaking were fine for Monica. She resisted more intimate gestures.
"He just needs to rest."
"Yeah. He might also need to retire."
"He'll be fine." The words were a whisper. He couldn't stop himself. Trick pulled her back against his chest. For a split second she relaxed against him.
