“You were trying to save that horse.”

His eyes darkened. “Yes.”

“Where is it now?”

“Hugh sent the guys after it. They have him boarded in the barn.”

Somehow that news made her breathe a sigh of relief. She tentatively slid a hand down his arm. When he didn’t pull a face, she figured his arm wasn’t bruised, and did it again. “I’m so glad to hear it.”

“And hear I’m okay?” His eyes twinkled.

“Yes. But you scared me, you jerk.”

He laughed and grunted. “Damn, that is painful.”

“You scared Hugh too.”

He went still and sobered. “Did I?”

She couldn’t resist cupping his jaw. “Does he know you’re in love with him?”

Riggs twisted his head away but didn’t even deny his feelings. “No.”

“Why don’t you tell him?”

“He’s not into that. Besides, we work together.”

“But people fall in love all the time while working together.”

“It’s not like that for Hugh.”

She studied his dark lashes against his pale cheeks. At that instant Hugh returned, bearing a bouquet of pink and white blooms. With a chuckle he read the card to Riggs: “To our delicate flower. The Boot Knockers.”

Shaking his head, Riggs threw him a grin. “Jackasses. I hope they’re prepared to wake up with their eyebrows shaved off.”
