A man holding on...Riley Kittredge has always known exactly what he wanted. His land, his horses. His woman. He met and married Rae Trujillo far too young, and their young love combusted right after they said their vows. But their passion has never managed to burn itself out. Yet when Rae shows this time, it's not a night of pleasure she demands, but a divorce.
A woman letting go...Rae should have moved on a long time ago. She knows she and Riley just don't work. They might make great lovers, but that doesn't make a marriage. And now Rae wants a new life, complete with a baby. But when her husband offers to be a father, to give her the family she's always secretly desired, she and Riley will both have to face demons from their past—and choose love over fear at last.

SECRET NIGHTS WITH A COWBOY by Caitlin Crews
WOW!!! I LOVED reading about Rae and Riley in Secret Nights with a Cowboy by Caitlin Crew, book four in her Cold River Ranch series. I could not put down this emotionally charged love story of love, misunderstanding, and secrets. Ms. Crews has woven a story of two unhappy people, unwilling, or unable, to change the status quo because of the love they share until they learn to open their hearts to each other; and when they decide to shake things up, a new, more mature love blossoms between them.
Riley Kittredge has always known exactly what he wanted. His land, his horses and his woman, Rae Trujillo. Rae and Riley married too young, right out of high school, far too young. Having only their parents as role models for a successful marriage, fighting and arguing seemed to be the norm these two expected for their marriage. Fight, make-up, fight, make-up, until Rae moves out of her home with Riley and returns to live with her parents. They are still passionate about each other, with Rae usually visiting Riley during the middle of the night. Until one night, Rae’s visit is not for a night of pleasure but to ask for a divorce.
In order to get the new life she wants, including a baby, Rae must move on and let go of her past. Riley tried to be supportive and be Rae’s friend as she tried to date, but it’s not until she breaks down, sharing her demons of the past with Riley will she be able to come to terms with her destiny. A destiny where her husband, Riley, offers to be a father, giving her the family she always secretly desired, and finding that love can grow in happiness.
Ms. Crew wrote a wonderfully emotional story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, strong friends, and charming characters that allow Rae and Riley to heal their wounds as they rediscover the love they once had. I highly recommend Secret Nights with a Cowboy to other readers.
