Winner Takes All (Warriors of the Heart #4)
By Laurie Winter
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Adult
Release Date: 21 January 2019

Blurb:
Storm Thompson wants to be anywhere but Liberty Ridge. Especially since his hometown also contains his childhood nemesis, Colleen Gardner. With a young daughter and mentally ill mother to care for, he struggles to simply make ends meet. Every day, his goal of owning an organic farm slips further out of reach.

Psychiatrist Colleen Gardner has her sights set on starting a retreat to help veterans suffering from PTSD. She's done well but her small town fundraisers just aren't enough.

"The Great American Scavenger Hunt" TV show offers a million-dollar prize, and Colleen and Storm are selected as competitors. Both resolve to do whatever is needed to win, even using the other to get ahead. Storm and Colleen compete to fund their dreams, but their already tattered relationship becomes more strained. Only one will win the money. But will love prove the ultimate prize?


Excerpt:

Colleen did not snore. Well, she was fairly sure she didn’t snore. Storm only wanted to rile her. But watching him hop down from the top bunk only wearing a pair of athletic shorts had done more to knock her off balance than any amount of teasing. The unobstructed view of his muscular chest nearly gave her fits—and his tattoo of the phases of the moon running down his spine—super sexy. Years of farm work blessed his body with angles and hard edges she’d love to explore. If he wasn’t her rival.

He’d been acting very nice the past few days, tricking her into thinking he’d put aside their past. But she still possessed a nagging doubt he used her to get ahead. A strategy serving two masters—victory and revenge.

After breakfast, she walked to the bathhouse. On the way, she noticed Storm standing in a clearing and working through a yoga flow. He looked like a reincarnated demigod—skin glistening with sweat. As she watched him hold a tree pose, balanced on one leg, arms stretched up to the blue sky, she experienced a head rush, a result of her quickening pulse.
Not trusting her judgment, she turned and jogged to the bathhouse. Maybe the water would wash away not only the dirt and grime from travel, but the feelings Storm stirred. She stood under the spray of hot water and turned her focus to the next leg of the race. The group of contestants slowly diminished with each elimination. Rob and Brad drove in circles around the Black Hills and Custer State Park until one finally stopped to ask for directions. They were too late, though, and had arrived as the last two.

After she got dressed, she returned to the cabin and repacked her backpack. The sound of Burt Blackstone’s voice shouting over a megaphone made her cringe. She stepped outside to see the host standing next to the open field behind the cabins.
