Excerpt From Her Perfect Getaway, Now Free on Amazon and iTunes

Some surfers wore bathing suits, other short wetsuits. Some were clearly more experienced than others, steering around others surfers with a mere shift of their weight on the board. One in particular drew her attention, a lean man with slicked back hair, water streaming down his bare chest, his board shorts riding low on his hips, his stance at once alert and relaxed as he moved through the water. She caught her breath as he paddled, ready for one of the taller waves that rolled toward him, as he pounced to his feet just be-low the crest of the wave, maneuvering his body and board up and down the height of the swell and riding the length until the wave disappeared.
His momentum carried him forward onto the beach, and Elizabeth’s breath caught in recognition.
Sullivan pushed his hair away from his face and grinned. “See that?”
She saw every bit of that, long legs, broad chest covered with a soft-looking layer of curly hair. A tattoo of a hibiscus was etched on his upper right shoulder.
But she was pretty sure that wasn’t what he was talking about. “You make it look effortless.”
He jammed the end of his board in the sand and dropped to sit beside her. “Mom had me out on a board practically before I could walk.” He twisted to look at her. “Want to give it a shot?”
“I’m not dressed.”
“I can wait. Go change.”
She thought about what Bailey had said, about feeling his hands on her, and suddenly the thought terrified her. She hadn’t had sex in a long time, and the longing he sent through her was frightening. His scent swirled around her, and his water-cooled arm brushed hers. Her nipples tightened at that simple contact and suddenly it wasn’t enough.
She pushed to her feet. “I’ll be right back.”

An Excerpt from Faith in the Cowboy

I cannot tell you how excited I am about this book. I love West. I love Teresa. I love West and Teresa!

He brought his up behind hers to show her what he meant, and she felt the tensing of his strong thigh muscles against her legs. The sensation damn near had her melting off the horse. But before she could, he nudged the horse into a faster pace, first jarring her teeth with each step before easing into a rocking gait that had the scenery speeding past them, the wind blowing her hair against him. The sensation was—incredible, and surprised a laugh from her. He tightened his arms around her and she leaned into his chest, feeling the play of muscle against her back as he guided the horse in a looping circle around Liam’s five acres. Teresa barely felt the chill on her skin as they rode, West guiding the horse left and right, making Teresa laugh more as her stomach dipped.
Beneath them, though, the horse started to tire, and Teresa felt the animal’s sides bellow as she slowed to a walk. West guided the horse to the barn. He dismounted and reached for Teresa, his hands strong on her waist, making her feel tiny and feminine. She placed her hands on his shoulders as he lifted her, and she realized the horse wasn’t the only one breathing hard.
Her heart jumping in her chest, she lifted her chin in invitation. Before she could rethink her decision, he’d lifted her off her feet, turned her and pressed her against the wall of the barn. His lips, though, when they touched hers, were gentle, exploring, sliding over hers, cool and dry from their ride, before parting her lips and touching his tongue to hers.
When she opened to him, he moved closer, pinning her between his hard body and the fresh lumber of the wall, filling her with his taste, coffee and fresh air and mint. She breathed him in, tightening her arms around his shoulders. God, those shoulders.
And the way he kissed her, the rhythm not unlike the gait of the horse, forward and back, deeper, then softer. She let her tongue slide along his, exploring, seeing what made him tighten his grip on her hips, what made his breath catch. A thrill went through her at having power over such a big man. She released his shoulders to slide her hands between them, over his chest, wanting so badly to unsnap his shirt and feel his skin against hers. She went as far as crumpling the fabric in her hands before she came to her senses and smoothed the shirt against his skin. She pressed her palms against his chest and eased back, the lack of oxygen to her brain making her reckless.
He lifted his head to look at her, not releasing her, not stepping back. That should have scared her, should have worried her, but with West, she wasn’t afraid. She looked up into his blue eyes, shadowed in the dark barn.
“Not here.”

Kobo

A daring young widow
An outlaw’s former lover
The daughter of a notorious bank robber

Three wild western women in one collection of previously published erotic novellas

Wild Wild Widow

Rebecca Chatham is no stranger to scandal. She and her husband delighted in shocking San Francisco society with their sexual exploits, not hard to do in 1888. But now her husband is dead. He left her penniless, forced to live under her wealthy father’s thumb. While searching for a protector, she once again becomes the focus of society gossip, and her father exiles her to her brother’s ranch in Central California.

Rebecca is miserable, until she meets the very handsome, very virile ranch foreman Judah Merrill. A real cowboy. Though she’s aware of their differences in status, she pursues him with a single-mindedness, until he catches her in the creek (and in the barn and on horseback). But what happens when she falls in love with him? Will he accept her wild wild heart?

In the Marshal’s Arms

Marshal Rhys Burgess always gets his man. To catch a notorious bank robber, he seeks out the man’s sometimes-mistress Maddy Colby. She lives on her own on a farm that needs a lot of work. He presents himself to her as a handyman…and waits.

As he waits, he gets to know Maddy, who is nothing like he expected. Isolated on the farm, shunned by the townspeople because of the choices she’s made, Maddy is smart, generous and hard-working–and lonely. Every day he finds her harder and harder to resist…until a snowstorm strands them alone together in the tiny cabin.

Then Rhys needs to discover…is getting his man worth losing his woman?

Stealing the Marshal’s Heart

The daughter of the infamous bank robber Sweetheart Belle, Abigail Vincent grew up wild in New Mexico Territory. After her mother was killed, she ran off with a small-time outlaw to protect herself from the unwanted advances by her mother’s former lover. After her outlaw companion was arrested, she was sent to a home for wayward girls, where she’s now a servant, since she has no place else to go.

That’s where Marshal Marcus Grey finds her. He is searching for her younger brother, who is now riding in his father’s outlaw gang. Abigail wants to find her brother before he gets himself killed and coerces Marcus into taking her with him.

Marcus’s attraction to the woman, so unlike any he’s ever known, alarms him. He’s a marshal and can’t fall for an outlaw’s daughter, no matter how beautiful, strong and brave she may be.

But as they face storms, Indians and outlaws–not to mention long nights alone in the desert–he can’t deny the truth…she’s stolen his heart.

Cover Reveal–Faith in the Cowboy

The book I’m working on now is the third book in my Taming the Cowboy series. It’s Teresa’s story, Grace’s roommate from The Cowboy’s Saving Grace. I have to say I’m totally in love with the cowboy she falls for. To. Tal. Ly.

Here’s the blurb:

Teresa Gallegos needs to concentrate on getting custody of her daughter after a messy divorce. She doesn’t have time for a man, not even the sexy cowboy who comes to visit Grace and Liam Delaney on their new ranch. But that cowboy is more than sexy–he’s sweet and thoughtful…and when he kisses her, he sends her up in flames, something she never thought could happen again.

West McConall can’t resist the pretty little brunette who never smiles. He was never one to resist a challenge, which is why when he joined the rodeo as a bullfighter, one who runs out to distract a bull once the rider has been tossed. And Teresa is one hell of a challenge. The only time she opens up to him is in his arms, and he’s determined to knock down all the walls around her and win her heart.

And here’s the cover:

Faith in the Cowboy Final

New Release–Stealing the Marshal’s Heart, a western historical

The story for Stealing the Marshal’s Heart has been in my head for a long time. I read the story of Belle Starr awhile back, and read about her kids. I wondered what it would be like for the children to grow up with a mother as an outlaw. Clear as day, I saw the group of lawmen, including the younger version of my marshal, coming to tell the younger version of my heroine that her mother died in a bank robbery.

Then, I thought, what if that same young marshal came to her for help to find her brother, who’s following her mother’s footsteps? She wants to save her brother, so goes along with the marshal. And since she didn’t have the most conventional upbringing, well…

So was born Stealing the Marshal’s Heart, available now at Barnes and Noble and Amazon.

The daughter of the infamous bank robber Sweetheart Belle, Abigail Vincent grew up wild in New Mexico Territory. After her mother was killed, she ran off with a small-time outlaw to protect herself from the unwanted advances by her mother’s former lover. After her outlaw companion was arrested, she was sent to a home for wayward girls, where she’s now a servant, since she has no place else to go.

That’s where Marshal Marcus Grey finds her. He is searching for her younger brother, who is now riding in his father’s outlaw gang. Abigail wants to find her brother before he gets himself killed and coerces Marcus into taking her with him.

Marcus’s attraction to the woman, so unlike any he’s ever known, alarms him. He’s a marshal and can’t fall for an outlaw’s daughter, no matter how beautiful, strong and brave she may be.

But as they face storms, Indians and outlaws–not to mention long nights alone in the desert–he can’t deny the truth…she’s stolen his heart.
