Cowboy Protector

The Heart Of The Matter

Beau Adams can’t stop thinking about Sierra Byrne. Her feisty spirit and ample curves dominate his thoughts, while he should be focused on getting himself and Midnight, the Harts' prized stallion, to the National Finals Rodeo. When Beau and Sierra’s electric connection finally leads to a steamy night together, Beau hopes it’s the beginning of something more.
As much as Sierra wants to be with Beau, anything long-term is out of the question. A recently diagnosed eye disease will soon leave her blind, and she can’t ask a rising rodeo star like Beau to take on that responsibility. Though she tries to pretend their tryst was just another item on her bucket list, Sierra’s true feelings run a lot deeper. Will she let her affliction steal not only her sight, but her dreams of happiness, as well?

Beau & Sierra talk about Love, Life and Rodeo

What is your greatest accomplishment?

Beau: Convincing Sierra Byrne that I'm a stand-by-your-woman man no matter what life throws at her or what challenges she'll face in the future. 

Sierra: Having enough faith and courage in myself to reach for my own happy-ever-after with Beau.

What do you most enjoy about rodeo?

Beau: Winning the buckle.

Sierra: Giving Beau his good luck before he competes and if he wins…being on the receiving end when Beau claims his victory kiss.

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

Beau: I'd wait for people to ask for my help rather than jump in and attempt to solve everyone's problems.

Sierra: To have more confidence in my ability to overcome the roadblocks my worsening eyesight throws in my way.

What makes you angry or upset?

Beau: When my brother doesn't realize all I've sacrificed in order for him to take the spotlight in bull riding the past few years.

Sierra: Feeling as if I have no control over my destiny.

What is your most treasured possession?

Beau: My leather tools for making saddles. 

Sierra:  An engraved ladle my mother gave me when I graduated from the Le Cordon Bleu cooking school in Chicago.

What do you dream of?

Beau: Winning a National Finals Rodeo title in bull riding, then retiring and settling down with Sierra.

Sierra:  Marrying Beau and having his children.

What are you most afraid of?

Beau: Going through life without Sierra.

Sierra: Losing my sight before I'm able to do all the things on my bucket list.

What is your favorite book?

Beau: Stohlman Encyclopedia of Saddle Making.

Sierra: Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell.

If you could change one thing about your family what would it be?

Beau: That my mother didn't die in a car wreck when me and my brother were two- year olds.

Sierra: That I not be an only child and that my parents had survived their plane crash five years ago.

On what occasion do you lie?

Beau: To spare someone's feelings.

Sierra: To protect my privacy.

What's your favorite food?
