Blurb:

Haunted by scandal, Eden Mallory is determined to start over in a small Kentucky town.  But she won’t soon forget the sexy, rugged doctor who rescued her from an outlaw, then rode off into the storm.

After losing his kid-brother to consumption, Dr. Michael Jones is obsessed with saving lives. He has no room for love or a wife. But the nights are lonely, and Eden haunts his dreams.

When Eden becomes his backdoor neighbor, she turns his world upside-down with her unconventional healing skills and sweet temptations.  Then outlaws return, forcing Michael to confront his past if he is to save the most precious life of all.

Excerpt:

Animal Orphanage

After they’d finished examining the orphaned animal babies, there was nothing left for Eden and Michael to do but pack their medical bags. Eden watched the antics of Vandy, her favorite raccoon.  With a territorial bellow—which sounded more like a squeak—the baby swatted at his reflection in the rain pail, spraying water all over Michael and Eden.

The baby whickered sheepishly at the wet male human looming over him.

“Oh, no you don’t,” Michael growled as Vandy bolted for the nearest tree. Michael swooped, thrusting the coon into a cage. Vandy’s little black eyes blazed with indignation as he wrapped his forepaws around the bars. He looked every inch like an outlaw in a cell.

Eden grinned as Michael squatted, offering her his handkerchief to wipe her face. “It’s going to be curtains for you, Doc,” she quipped, “the next time Vandy the Varmint busts out of jail.”

“Much obliged for the warning.” The dazzle of perfect teeth and masculine dimples made Eden’s heart take a giddy skip. “But that rascal won’t be seeing daylight for… at least a coon’s age.”

She was captivated by his humor. The dark, brooding facade he favored had magically melted, and she knelt beside a charming, urbane man. A man who, less than twelve hours ago, had kissed her until her head had spun and sparks had showered her nerves like shooting stars. Oh Michael, she pleaded, please don’t retreat inside your armor again.

She wondered if he’d heard her thought. As they laughed together, he rocked forward, his head nearly touching hers. He stilled. Her heart tripped. A breathless moment lay suspended between them. She watched his eyes, indigo now with a touch of silver, as they traveled over her hair, which was damp and no doubt wind-tossed; her nose, which was probably freckling in the sun, and her cheeks, which were growing warmer by the second. His expression softened, growing so tender, that when he raised his hand, she hardly dared to breathe.

“A souvenir from Vandy, I suspect,” he murmured, his thumb brushing a dab of mud off her chin.

“Thank you,” she whispered.

His inky fringe of lashes lowered. Her pulse skyrocketed. It pounded so hard, she could hear nothing of the birds, the wind, the boys. There was only Michael and the singing in her blood as his head moved closer and his breath grazed her lips.

“Eden.” His voice throbbed around her, as deep and rich as the fertile earth. “I—”

A bucket clanged behind them.

“Are you two gonna start smacking lips again?” Jamie demanded.

I should have known I would end up here... Give me a good book and I'm in heaven. Especially romance, mystery, mayhem, the fantastic and the fey. Give me a laptop and I'm writing any one of these, and not in any particular order.

  1. Hello, Danita! Thanks for hosting Eden, Michael and “Vandy the Varmint” (oh, and Me too!) on your fab website today! I’m looking forward to chatting with you and your readers. Hugs!

    1. Thanks, Rita! Vandy makes his debut appearance in HIS WICKED DREAM, but “Vandy Vanderbilt Varmint” (as he comes to be called) plays a key role in the plots of SEDUCED BY AN ANGEL and my upcoming DEVIL IN TEXAS! (I love coons! Can you tell?) 🙂

    1. Hi, Mary! (I love that handle: Froggarita! 🙂

      Originally, my story had a paranormal subplot (Gabriel, Michael’s kid brother, was to come back as a ghost, with his “ghost dog,” Goober, and “matchmake” for Michael and Eden.) My publisher nixed that idea, so I invented the animal orphanage. Now Vandy the raccoon character is making mischief (and saving folks) in 3 of my novels. So all’s well that ends well, as they say! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs!

    1. Hi, Catherine! Well, many of my writing awards were for non-fiction projects. Example: The “Best Promotion in Texas” was awarded to me by the Texas School Public Relations Association (under my “real” name.) I also took some time away from my fiction-writing career. With the support of loyal readers like yourself, I’ll be able to stick to writing novels full time ~ which has definitely been my life-long goal! Thanks for asking! Hugs . . .

    1. Howdy, Eva! I just LOVE to interrupt a hot-almost-kiss with a child who comes barging onto the scene! I confess, I used the tactic in TEXAS LOVER too ~ only that book had a passel of two-legged orphans, rather than furry, four-footed ones. Hugs!

    1. Thanks, Steph! Lots of fun stuff in this book: Be sure to catch the Kissing Booth Scene, where 75-year-old Aunt Claudia (who wears dungarees, a coonskin cap, and smokes a corn cob pipe) takes over the booth with her shotgun! ::snicker:: (She’s one of my favorite characters in this book.) Hope to see you again on my tour!

  2. Speaking of dimples, how could no-one mention the infamous dimpled a$$? No, not cellulite, I’m referring to the ones at the lower back just above the glutes… Perfect for sipping champagne 🙂

    1. Yay! Another animal lover! I had so much fun writing Vandy: he appears in SEDUCED BY AN ANGEL and DEVIL IN TEXAS (which I’m currently writing.) If you love animals, be sure to read SCOUNDREL FOR HIRE (where the hero has a MOST unusual “ward.”) And my bestselling / award-winning TEXAS WILDCAT is filled with dogs and memorable livestock, including some cantankerous pigs and a cow named Daisy that pretty much saves Bandera County, Texas, from a range war . . . (Ha!) Hugs!
