Reflecting on Wishes by DeAnna Felthauser

Six years ago, Dakota was adopted by Noah and Mikayla Cane. Even with a close-nit, loving family, nothing prepared him for falling head-over-heels in love with Angel Vega. When a game of cat and mouse begins between the pair, Dakota is persistent in what he wants. It may take him months to win her over, but he knows she is worth the effort.
Deemed the Latina Goddess of the race track, Angel is a Pro-Stock Motorcycle racer that has been burned by love more than once. Letting down her walls and believing in a man again, was the last thing on her mind. Just as Angel finds herself falling for the ruggedly handsome Dakota, tragedy strikes and shatters her racing dreams.
Devastated, Angel retreats into a world of doubt, fear and broken dreams. Will Dakota do as she wants and walk away, or will he be the strength she needs and fight for the girl that owns his heart?


Summertime was the best time of year; early May, but hot and breezy with the scent of honeysuckle blooming in the air. It was still dark, but Dakota had a couple of hours of driving time ahead of him to Commerce, Georgia. Once he met up with his brother, Dominic and his buddy, Tank at the diner for breakfast, they were heading to the drag races for the weekend.

This was his first long trip on his new matte black Yamaha YZF-R1 motorcycle. He could hardly wait to get it on the highway and open her up. First things first, breakfast at Lola May’s diner. The only person he knew that could throw down some country cookin’ better than Lola May was his mom, Mikayla. He was still getting used to calling Mikayla, ‘mom’ even though she and Noah adopted him along with his brother and sister—the twin’s, about six years ago.

He pulled into the diner but didn’t see Tank or Dominic’s bikes so he went ahead and parked, taking off his helmet before walking inside the cool lobby. As always, Ms. Lola greeted him with a boisterous hug.

“There’s my tall, dark and handsome! C’mere and give Ms. Lola some lovin’s, honey.”

Dakota grinned and wrapped her up against him, lifting the buxom, curvy woman off her feet, sending her into a fit of girlish giggles. “Ms. Lola you get more beautiful every single time I come in here, darlin’.”

Kissing his cheeks, she patted his chest and fanned her face. “Oh lordy be, honey, if I wasn’t married, I’d be doin’ things to you that are illegal in the state of Georgia, I would!”

He grinned at her, wiggling his eyebrows. “Ms. Lola, I would have let you too.” A brief kiss on her cheek left her gasping as she picked up a menu and fanned her face.

“Oh, honey, now you come on back here and take this table by the kitchen so’s I can come out and flirt with you while you’re here. Goodness knows you are good for this old gal’s ego.” With that said, she turned and weaved her way to the table, swinging her ample hips to and fro’ all the way there.

“You want some coffee, honey?”

“Yes ma’am I do. I’ll wait for the guys to get here before I order though.”

“What trouble are y’all gettin’ into today? Gonna be chasin’ girls round town?” Lola turned his coffee cup over and filled it from a fresh pot of the steaming brew.

“We’re heading up to Commerce for the drag races this weekend.”

“Mhmm…I know what you’re doin’, Dakota Cane, you ain’t foolin’ me none boy. You’re gonna go flirt with our hometown girl aren’t ya? Oh that Angel Vega is one lovely little creature. Why, I remember when she was just a tiny little sprite comin’ in here with her daddy for breakfast on Sunday mornin’s. They still do when she’s in town. She’s as sweet as pie too.”

He nearly blurted out that he’d bet she was sweet as pie but he snapped his mouth shut and grinned.

“We’re going to see the races, Lola…not pick up women.”

“Mhmm, tell it to the judge, darlin’. I see you lookin’ all fine in your black leather and snappy lookin’ bike. Mhmm you on the hunt for that girl, I can tell by the look in your eyes when I said her name.”

Laughing, he winked at her and nodded his head. “I plead the fifth, Ms. Lola.”

“I am sure you do, baby. That is one lucky little spitfire you’re after, lucky indeed.”
