My latest release is book 2 in my Big Sky Lawmen series.
I recently got back rights to Last First Kiss and thought a revamped version would be a perfect fit for this series. So it’s now called Wade and is available at Amazon through their KDP Select program so if you have Kindle Unlimited it will be a free read.
Here’s the synopsis and an excerpt-
Wade Linley never thought he’d live to see the day when he’d receive a frantic call from Emily Richardson asking him to drive out to the Mountain View B and B because she was about to be arrested for first degree murder. However, the evidence is overwhelming. Now she’s on her way to jail and has only one request—for Wade to phone call her granddaughter, Sophie, and ask her to come home. Wade knows having her back in town means nothing but trouble for his heart.
Sophie can’t believe it’s Wade’s voice on the other end of the line and that her grandmother has been arrested for murder. Going home is a must but things would be a lot easier if Wade wasn’t there. After all, she did break his heart eight years ago. Together, can these once childhood sweethearts clear Emily’s name and put their differences aside while rediscovering their love for one another?
Sophie leaned closer to the mirror and swirled some lip gloss over her lips before smacking them together. She stepped back, taking a comb and running it through her hair. It looked a mess from sitting in that cramped seat for so long. She rummaged through her bag and found an elastic band. She quickly pulled her hair back and secured it into a ponytail. Sophie picked up her bag from the countertop, made a mad dash for the door, and headed for the baggage claim where she hoped Wade would be waiting to drive her to Glacier Valley.
Her heart beat faster with each step she took anticipating what he’d look like. What they’d say and also what they’d talk about on the journey home. A group of older women obscured her view of the baggage claim area, but as they parted ways she could a glimpse of a man holding his cowboy hat in both hands while leaning against a wall in the car rental area. He was standing in profile, but she knew it was Wade. She’d recognize that fine looking bone structure anywhere. Time hadn’t changed or taken it away. She stopped walking, wondering if she could actually face him again.
However, she had to for her grandmother. And after all, he’d driven all this way to collect her.
She took a deep breath, willing her feet to start moving again. The closer she got, the more her heart picked up speed. It pounded in her ears, almost deafening her. He turned her way but hadn’t noticed her quite yet because he seemed to be looking at the carousel that had just started up.
Yes, he was a mature grown man now. His shoulders were wider, and he’d bulked up in a good way. He’d suddenly caught sight of her and mouthed her name.
Sophie’s heart missed a beat as she ran at top speed toward him, and he ran toward her.
When they met she put her hand out to shake his, thinking that was the safest thing to do. However, when he failed to accept it, and instead pulled her in close, she knew she was in love with him all over again. She wondered if he felt the same way, too.
Would that be stupid of us or romantic?
“Sophie, it’s so great to see you. You look really good.” They pulled away.
“You do, too.”
Now that they’d got past the hugging stage she thought about giving him a kiss on the cheek for old times, but he made the first move and kissed her lips instead.
She closed her eyes. How long had it been since they’d kissed? Seemed like eternity. Sophie thought it would be just a quick peck. She wasn’t expecting anything more, but Wade’s lips lingered on hers.
Sophie had always loved the way he kissed. No other guy, including her ex-husband, had kissed quite like Wade. He was the first boy she’d ever kissed, and it had been the summer of her sixteenth birthday. Yes, they’d kissed before, play sort of ones, quick ones where their lips smacked together for a few seconds. But on that birthday things had gotten more serious, and the kiss had been longer; mouths had opened, and eager tongues had slipped beyond their lips. When they’d finally pulled away Wade had said something she still remembered to this very day.
“You’re going to be my only girlfriend, and I’ll be your only boyfriend, so we won’t have any other first kisses, which officially makes that our last first kiss.”
This week I got rights back to the rest of my books that were published with Cobblestone Press. I’ll be revamping, them, adding new chapters to some and then re-releasing them at a lower price. It’s a slow process and even more so because I’m working on new stories too. I hope to every book back on the sites by the middle of June.
This week I re-released three of the books-
Cater to Me which I added three new chapters-
One Night with You
Seduced by a Cowboy which was previously titled The Last American Cowboy
All three of these titles are now available at All Romance E Books and Smashwords and over the next few days, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Kobo too. If you haven’t read them, I hope you’ll take the opportunity to check them out.
And don’t forget on May 5th I’ll be releasing a new story, Jackson part of my Big Sky County series.
Thank you to everyone who sent suggestions for the cowbear’s name. Lots of great ones. However, the two I’ve chosen are Brody suggested by Shannon, and Kent suggested by April. Brody will be a character in an upcoming Big Sky County book while Kent will feature in an upcoming Kalispell Shifter story. And both Shannon and April have won an e book of their choice from one of the series.
Once again thank you for entering, and thank you for reading both of these series.
My next release is the first book in my new contemporary Western series titled Big Sky County. Each book will feature a different character from this make believe county in Montana. First up is Mac Connor otherwise known as MacDreamy, he’s an ex rodeo star and a tough cowboy to wrangle, but for the new vet in town, he’s putty in her hands.
Release date is August 22nd and here’s a first look at the cover and I hope you enjoy the story and this new series-
Happy New Year to everyone-
My 2014 release schedule kicks off on January 8th with the sixth book in the Perfect Pairing series. This one is set in Casper, Wyoming and features yet another sexy cowboy who doesn’t think he’s looking for love. Well, that’s until Sadie steps in and convinces him otherwise, and in a way only she can.
There’s also big trouble in store for everyone’s favorite witch which will unfold more in the seventh installment.
Here’s a look at the cover and I hope you enjoy this new story-
Tomorrow December 5th is the release date for the last in the Love Cowboy Style trilogy. Just in time for the holidays you can spend Christmas with yet another sexy cowboy.
Evernight Publishing made me this wonderful banner showing all three covers so I thought I’d share it with you here-
Thank you to everyone who bought the previous stories. And if you enjoyed this trilogy, I’m currently working on another one. This time longer stories, continuing storyline and characters, and yes, more cowboys.
Happy Holidays and My Best Wishes for a Wonderful New Year.
If you love reading stories about sexy cowboys I hope you’ll check out my upcoming trilogy called Love Cowboy Style. The first story is called Courted By A Cowboy and is released by Evernight Publishing on October 3rd.
All three stories feature ladies who aren’t necessarily looking for love, but find Mr. Right in the shape of a cowboy. The first heroine is thinking about going to law school and runs into the father of a former boyfriend. The second features a heroine who takes a cross country train journey on behalf of her late sister. And the final installment is a Christmas themed tale of two unlikely lovers who find themselves stranded in Denver.
Hope you enjoy all three stories.
My next release is Friday June 14th, and is Tell Me No Lies, a romantic suspense set in Montana. The story centers around another sexy sheriff, Aiden McDermott, and his task to solve a cold case involving a missing woman. Not just any woman, but the mother of Christina Connolly, the girl who once saved his life and who has always had his heart.
Hope you’ll enjoy reading it.
