Tuesday Teaser ~ Watching You

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018


She could look him up and find out exactly who not just B was but every other person in this town but she didn’t have it in her. So, she shrugged it off, picked up two fries and popped them in her mouth, chewing with bliss.

“How long you been in law?”

A thick tanned arm reached over her shoulder and took some fries from her plate. The arm’s dark hair skimmed along her skin setting her pulse ablaze. “She’s been a Marshal for ten years now, haven’t you Mason?”

She would have collapsed had she not been on the chair. That voice, that face—when she glanced up at it—told her all she needed to know. Her one night stand when she’d been in Georgia for some training stood there. Patrick West. Not entirely true. He had been a one night stand but for years after that, they’d been meeting in secret for no holds barred sex over a night or weekend.

She hadn’t seen him in a few months and if anything, he’d gotten better with age. A common thought for her when it came to this man. His smoky gray eyes bore into her with an intensity no other man could even begin to compare to. He’d gotten broader, not fat, but all muscle. She had no trouble telling he’d bulked up. The way his green shirt hugged his torso made parts of her sit up and beg. For his touch. For her to dust off the cobwebs and get back to what it was made for.

She moved her eyes down over his body and took in the way his jeans hugged lean hips and powerful thighs.

Burke_CF_Relentless LGBook One in the Cottonwood Falls series

“Everything would be simpler, Mr. Glazer, if you would just sell to me. I’m offering you well over market value to buy out your clinic.” Toby Latner flicked a piece of imaginary lint from charcoal gray slacks with an impatient jerk of his hand.

Tuesday Teaser ~ Embers of Lust

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018


Riya didn’t even bat an eye. There was only one man who Todd called her boyfriend and that was octogenarian Emmett McGinty. With his tufts of white hair sprouting out at all angles, he reminded her a bit of just a crazy old loon, but she loved him. He never failed to make her smile and laugh.

“You know, you could just say you missed me, it would be okay.”

Todd narrowed his eyes at her and gestured for her to get moving. Chuckling, she stepped out into the diner and swept it with her gaze, locating Emmett in the back.

I missed you.”

With those three words, her world slowed. The entire thing. Her heartbeat grew loud in her ears while everything else faded. No matter where she went, or what she did, who she met in her life, this one voice had the power to render her into a pile of mush.

And the man who owned it…Cameron Liaci.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –

That perches in the soul –

And sings the tune without the words –

And never stops – at all….

Saturday Selection ~ Calamity Jayne by Kathleen Bacus

Saturday, January 20th, 2018

This week we have Calamity Jayne by Kathleen Bacus


How does a blonde spell “Farm”?

Tressa Jayne Turner has had it up to here with the dumb-blonde jokes and a childhood nickname that’s harder to get rid of than her favorite pair of cowboy boots. Thanks to one Rick Townsend, Iowa Department of Natural Resources officer, local hottie, and general pain in Tressa’s behind, everyone knows her as “Calamity Jayne”. Just because she may be a little accident prone and trouble seems to sometimes find her, Tressa can’t get anyone in her small town to take her seriously. That is, until Tressa finds a seriously dead body and an opportunity to get “Ranger Rick” and a skeptical citizenry to see that she’s no longer that skinny kid with scraped knees. How? By resurrecting her job as a reporter for the hometown paper and solving a murder no one else believes happened… no one, that is, except the killer. Now Tressa is one not-so-dumb blonde who’s out to gain a little hometown respect or die trying.
