4 More Days until You’re Giving Me A Haddock is Live!!

Thursday, July 21st, 2022

And because of this, I thought we would take a short break from cowboys and touch the previous three books in this cozy series leading to it’s release!

Reeled Back Home is the prequel to this series.

It’s free from Bookfunnel if you haven’t picked it up and would like to meet Jynx, Pita, and the rest of the tenants of Trapper Lakes.

She fanned a towel through the air, trying to encourage the smoke billowing in the house to make a most expeditious exit.

“Papa!” she cried out. “Where are you and what was so important that you forgot about the toast in the toaster?”

And the bacon. And the eggs.

He walked in the room, his rounded spectacles perched on the end of his nose. Her father, Angus Nix, was a unique individual. Smart as a whip without a lot of the social niceties that most people had. Her mother had been the calming and centering force in his world. She had been the one to make him leave his lab after a while and be out in the real world.

Without and her having been gone, he’d become a hermit.

And one who tended to blow things up in his lab that was in his bedroom. Ms. Wanda had done wonders but she needed to step in and deal with this.

“You need to put your pants on, Papa.” Her arms were aching because of the fanning. She’d already hurt her leg by trying shut off that smoke alarm.

“I have them on.”

“Take another look.”

“Oh,” he said with a shrug. “I’ll do it later. I have something to show you, Ginny. This is incredible. You have to come see.”

His blue eyes sparkled with joy and life that some days she wished was because of her but it wasn’t to be. And that was okay, he loved her. She knew it.

Propping open all the windows, she had the fan on over the oven as well and only after ensuring everything was off, did she follow him to his room.

“I left the window open because, well, the fumes were not good.”

Of course they weren’t.

He grabbed her hand and brought her closer. “Look what is using your coat as a bed.”

She bent closer and jumped back with a scream. “What is that?”

When it moved she realized, it was a raccoon. He looked at her, at least she thought it was a he, and hissed.

“Right back atcha, hat. Don’t even think about biting me. Papa, why is there vermin in the house and why are you letting it use my coat?”

Dream Lover – Snippet

He pressed against her belly to get her to ease into him with the hand not holding the reins. The sensation of his wide chest at her back had her wanting to crawl up into him and just let him protect her. The moment she allowed his torso to hold her up he curved his arm about her waist and brushed a kiss along her jawline.

Laciee felt the day’s tension seep out of her as Judd whispered in her ear. He pointed out parts of the ranch while they rode across his vast holding. There were no days like this in New York City that allowed her such relaxation.

His chest rumbled behind her and she wondered if she hadn’t spoken aloud. She didn’t ask, just allowed herself to enjoy all he offered to share with her. After all, how much more perfect could a day get? A cowboy—a hotly handsome one at that—holding her tightly to him, his horse, and the scenery dreams are made of.

“Figured you’d want some help getting that hot little scrap of material of yours down from the light.”

Still crouched on the floor, she glanced up and groaned with yet another wave of humiliation. Hanging over the rim of the lights cover was her pale iris lacy V-string panty.
