Eight Seconds

Book 2: Lucky Numbers Saga©2021-2022




Former bronc riding champion, Colton Sheppard has it all; wealth, stunning looks, female fans’ adulation, a generous sponsor and a stellar career on the rodeo circuit. In his eyes, nothing matters more than riding, wild parties, women and clocking his eight seconds on the dirt. Now a bull rider, he displays the same competitiveness and fearlessness as his cousin Cade Sheppard, mentor and world champion bull rider. Every ride brings Colton closer to the coveted gold buckle, and to a score that he needs to settle with the orneriest bull of all, Devil’s Spawn.


Little does he know that meeting two amazing women at the Calgary Stampede will bring him to crossroads in his life. Outgoing and fun-loving barrel racer Jessica Sterling is everything a young man could hope for in a woman. Her wild nature matches his perfectly.


Beautiful and shy barrel racer and bronc rider, Cassie Ironfeather, daughter of world champion bronc rider Derrick Ironfeather, appeals to Colton’s love of horses and ranching. Cassie is the kind of woman a man could fall in love with and commit to forever… if he was ready. 


While his stepparents, Mia and Nicholas Jackson dream of expanding their family, Colton’s dreams take an unexpected turn. When tragedy strikes, he must take a good look at himself, his lifestyle, his career, and his future.
