When Cheryl and Livia contacted me about the SIX SIZZLIN’ MAVERICKS boxed set, I was ecstatic! What a way to two-step into the Christmas season than with some Montana and Wyoming cowboys and their feisty ladies.
Included in this set is my first full-length publication HOME FIRES. It is also the first Western Historical I wrote years ago. Cord and Livy will always hold a special place in my heart.
Readers will also get HEARTS IN WINTER, a wild Wyoming holiday story. Garrett and Jenny will keep you laughing and crying, they did that to me at least.
Then included is a collection of novellas, three of which revolve around the crazy Renner family and their friends. Speaking of crazy, you’re in for a lot of it when you read THE WIDOW’S LAWMAN.
All of this Wild West fun for 99 Cents!! That means it won’t interfere with your holiday shopping!
I hope you will all enjoy these stories as much as I loved writing each one!
LEAVE A COMMENT for a chance to win one of two e-copies I’ll be giving away today!
To whet your appetite here’s an excerpt from HOME FIRES. This scene takes place when Cord and Livy are reunited after eight years apart.
“Livy.” His whisper so low she couldn’t be sure if she heard it, dreamed it, or wished it, but then, his gaze latched onto hers. Her eyes slid closed against everything flashing in those cinnamon depths. Love. Desire. Hope. Anger. Hurt. Betrayal. The same emotions poisoning her own mind. Her heart held tight to love and discarded the rest.
Driven by an invisible bond to Cord Matthews fiercer than any human emotion, Olivia stepped forward. She took inventory of the man before her. He was no longer the sweet young man of twenty, sporting a dashing gray uniform and heading off to a war his damnable honor forced him to fight. A man chiseled and hardened by acts and scenes her mind couldn’t conjure stood filling the small entrance to the Brennan home. Broad shoulders with muscles straining against a buff chambray shirt skimmed to a narrow waist. The denim pants, popular in the West, stretched over thick, strong thighs and legs. Someone cleared their throat and her gaze shot back where deep lines creased the bronzed skin around his eyes. She admired the man Cord had become. He fit this rugged land like he’d been born to it.
She dismissed Tom with a wave when he excused himself. One more step planted her in front of the ghost who haunted her dreams and nightmares. She inhaled horse, leather, sage, Cord and…home. Before she scolded herself away from her course, or he could stop her, Olivia lifted to the balls of her feet, wrapped her arms around his neck and pressed her lips to his.
His initial jolt disappointed her and she braced for rejection; but then, his arms snapped around her so strong she thought her ribs would crack. His mouth slid across hers demanding she deepen the kiss, and she parted her lips, allowing him full access. His tongue swept the inside of her mouth, and with a low feral moan Cord’s kiss turned hard and consuming. The taste of all the sweetest memories of her life with Cord caused her insides to shake. His embrace tightened on instinct calming the tremors.
Her fingers dug into the strands of silky black hair that brushed his collar as she pulled him closer. She choked back a cry from the pleasure and pain his kiss sent through her body. Her lungs burned for air but she didn’t want to breathe if breathing meant breaking the connection with Cord. Don’t be a dream. Don’t be a dream. Don’t be a dream. The drumbeat pounded from her head to her heart.
His mouth was ripped from hers. “Dammit, Livy.”
She tightened her hold around his neck and tried to pull him back to her.
“I saw your grave.”
