Laredo Jefferson was eight seconds from shaking the dust of Union Junction, Texas, from his boots. Eight seconds from discovering the Something Big he was
destined to do. He couldn't reckon how he'd promised those eight seconds to sweet filly Katy Goodnight, but he sure as shootin' knew why. He wanted to
be her hero. And that meant riding the beast Bloodthirsty Black.
Laredo was a lover, not a bull rider. Still, he craved a challenge and so, it seemed, did Katy. For this gun-shy Lonely Hearts gal handpicked him to unsaddle
her of her virginity. Suddenly, where Katy was concerned, eight seconds could never be enough.
