My Five Favorite Things Blog!

Hi all,



What are my five favorite things?

Let me tell you. I love a lot of things, horses, cowboys (well duh), my husband, my kids, Christmas...see lots of things, but what are my favorites?

1. Cowboys (You saw that one coming right?)

2. Horses

3. Back rubs

4. Sitting in a cabin back in the hills watching the snow fall silently to the ground and snuggling in front of a roaring fire with...a cowboy! (No, my husband! LOL)

5. My favorite book - Difficult Choices (Montana Cowboys 4)
This book was an emotional roller coaster for me to write. Those characters drove me batty with                  all the emotions rolling through each scene. If you haven't read it, leave a comment on this blog and at the end of the hop I will send one lucky winner the entire Montana Cowboys series in ebook. It could be you so leave a comment and your email address so I can contact you!

Don't forget to check out the other SCP authors participating in the blog hop at www.secretcravingspublishing.blogspot.com and I hope you all have a great weekend! You can see blurbs and excerpts from all my books at www.romancestorytime.com. Be sure to check it out!

Wounded Warrior Blog Hop!

With this blog, we are requesting at least 30 comments and I'm donating $30 to the Wounded Warrior project. For each comment beyond 30, I will continue to donate an extra $1 for each comment so please spread the word!

So, I'm going to post a tidbit about my upcoming series called Cowboy Dreamin'. The first book is called simply Joel.


I'm working on this currently and it's going along swimmingly! Joel and Mesa are an interesting couple already. He's your typical alpha cowboy and she's a romance writer who gets stuck running out of gas in the middle of nowhere near Bandera Texas.

Here is an unedited excerpt to wet your whistle.


Water ran in rivulets down the windshield. Lightning continued to flash and thunder rolled over the area. She sucked in a large breath as she bit her lip. What the hell do I do now?
A moment later she heard a tap, tap, tap on her window. She jumped and screamed as a face appeared near her door. Green eyes with long lashes stared back beneath a black cowboy hat. Black hair ruffled slightly with the wind.
"Ma'am? Are you all right?"
"I'm fine."
"You need to get this car out of the water. You'll be washed away. It's rising fast."
"I can't. I'm out of gas."
"Open the door."
"Hell no. Do I look crazy to you?"
"Trust me. If I were a serial killer, I wouldn't be out in this shit trying to find women to abduct. I'm going to help you, but you need to get out of the car before we're both swept away."
Mesa bit her lip. What the hell was she supposed to do now?
"Ma'am?"
"All right." She eased open the door to find the water almost to the bottom. The cowboy pulled the door the rest of the way as she grabbed her purse.
"We have to hurry," he said, taking her hand as he helped her from the car. "Let me help you. This water is rushing pretty fast."
A red horse stood patiently several feet away with its head down, riding out the storm the only way horses knew how. A cowboy on a real horse out here in the middle of nowhere? Surely, it's safe. I mean serial killers don't ride horses, right? 


So everyone who comments on the blog will receive a copy of Love Me Once, Love Me Twice (Montana Cowboys 1). Please leave your email address and I'll send you the book via email but you must leave a comment.

Joel (Cowboy Dreamin' 1) is scheduled for release Spring of 2013!
