A Convenient Risk

by Sara R. Turnquist


GENRE: Historical Romance





He never imagined her heart would be so hard to reach.


Forced into a marriage of convenience after her husband dies, Amanda Haynes is determined she will never love again. Not that it bothers Brandon Miller. He needs her husband’s cattle ranch and life insurance policy. She needs financial stability and long-term support for her son and herself. But she never expected to care so much about the running of the ranch.


Butting heads over the decisions of the ranch, adding to her frustration and grief at her loss. Her wellbeing is soon threatened as their lives become entangled with Billy the Kid and his gang. What has she gotten herself into? What kind of man has she married? Is there any way out?







A strong arm grasped Amanda, catching her upper arm and dragging her onto the horse. As soon as she was solidly on the animal, she grabbed ahold of Brandon as tightly as she could.


They took off. The bull pawed at the ground, making all manner of grunting noises, but as if by some miracle, he ran off to the left. All of this happened as if time had slowed.


The horse continued to push forward. And as they neared the edge of the fence, Brandon urged the horse to go even faster. Were they going to break through? What would happen to the cattle with the fence destroyed?


But as they approached the fence, the horse leapt. Amanda gripped Brandon impossibly tighter. Jolted when the horse landed, her teeth chattered.


Only then did Brandon slow the horse. He then placed a hand on her upper arm and pushed.


She released him.


He sucked in a deep breath and expelled it.


Had she been holding him too tightly? Her face warmed.


He took hold of her shoulders. “Are you all right?”


She nodded, and though their faces were but a breath apart, she was not quite able to meet his eyes, fighting tears in her own. Only then she found herself staring at his bare chest. Jerking her head away, she averted her gaze.


“Do you realize what could have happened?” His voice rose.


She nodded, still not able to meet his eyes. The force of his emotion hit her. Was he so concerned after her?


“I would have had to shoot that bull.”


What? Eyes wide, she tilted her face up to look at him.


“That bull is worth half my herd.”


So he was only worried about the cattle. Not her. His precious cattle.

Sara and her husband now enjoy a full life with their three beautiful and very active children. She enjoys many creative outlets – singing, piano, drawing, drama, and organizing anything.

    Does your family support your career as a writer?

    • sarav1701

      Yes, Mai Tran, I am fortunate. My husband is extremely supportive of my writing career. In fact, he is a writer himself! He writes technical/software books (has 4 published) and his first fiction work will debut March 2018. My kiddos are very young still, but they love looking at “mommy’s books” (the covers).
