About His to Save
by BA Tortuga
Cowboy Jasper hasn't been the most honest of men, but when ghost riders come for his soul, all he wants is to make sure they don't hurt his best friend Tanner. When Tanner faces the ghost riders and insists there is good still to be found in Jasper, he's given a year to turn things around. Will he be able to stay out of trouble, and will Tanner ever be more than just a friend?

Shit. Jasper rolled his shoulders, shifted on the saddle and counted again. Ten. Fifteen. Twenty. Twenty-two. Twenty-five. Thirty.
He'd counted forty-eight of 'em before thunder clapped and the bastard longhorns started mulling around. Goddamn it. He needed to get these motherfuckers moved and running. Needed to before the drovers from the Kinley ranch heard him.
They was mavericks, mostly, weren't they? Hell, they was just enough to pay out that last bit of work he'd never got a thin dime for, damned Jimmy Dane saying he'd been sleeping when he shoulda been on the herd.
