Just Desserts Blog Hop!


Hey all,

I'm not a cook. I'll tell you right now I do the basics to get by, but I have recipe my daughter does that gives you the most fabulous chocolate cookies to die for!

First let me tell you about my newest release. Trouble With a Cowboy is now available at all the major retailers including Amazon, B&N, Bookstrand, ARe, Smashwords, etc. You can read an excerpt below.

Twinsie Book Reviews gives it a 5!


Angie J' s Review:

I received this book from the author for  truthful review.

HEE HAW!!!  Man oh Man was this a great read.  I totally related to Jacie because I too am a very strong willed woman and was defo not looking for love when I met my current husband. I was definatley not looking to get married and all that jazz...been there and done that with a negative result.  Now Jacie was never married but she had her heart broken by an ex boyfriend/business partner.  Her plan was to find a nice piece for the night and move on the next day.  Well Kyle (town jackass) approaches her and she eats him alive.

 While all this is happening Tucker sees her and is like "HELLO There Darlin!!"  A little flirting, dancing and pool and then the 2 decided to have a fun night together.  Well damn Kyle for cock blocking Tucker and he is left hawt and alone.  Well Kyle isn't done being a "charmer" and causes more  issues for Jacie.  *drum roll* Tucker to the rescue.  The 2 make a business arrangement that is beneficial for both parties to get to Vegas.  Well business turns to pleasure...lots and lots of pleasure......Guess what kiddos??  They kinda develop feelings for each other.  NO you say?  Yes it is true :)

I love this story. It kept me on my toes and even a little teary eyed at the end.  I was like "Stubborn old bachelor and friggin' independent women!!  Admit the love already!!" I loved the epilogue but I tend to enjoy epilogues.  I think it is a great ending to the couple and you can see what is going to happen.

My fav scenes were in the Vegas hotel when the big boob chick hit on Tucker AND when the horse rider hit on Jacie.  It was classic Jealousy you see seeping out of the others pores!!!  It did give me a giggle.



Trouble With a Cowboy


Trouble With a Cowboy

$4.99



18 wheels had her heart until one hard-up cowboy found her kickin' up her heels and propositions her to take his bull to Vegas.
Jacie Hawkins drives big wheelers for a livin'. Something not a lot of women do. Littleton Oklahoma is just a dry stopover for a few hours of rest and relaxation at the nearest bar. Jacie needs to find a hot cowboy to release some of her pent up frustrations on for the night, but wannabe's aren't her style.
Tucker Marshall needs a big-rig driver to haul his prize bull to National Finals Rodeo and he needs one fast. Who would have thought he'd find one shootin' pool at the local bar dressed to kill and takin' numbers?
Can some slashed tires and an ornery bull bring two hard-headed people together for some fun in the sun and a little more?

To Die For Chocolate Cookies!

Take 1 package of Devil's Food Cake Mix
1/2 package of Chocolate Chips
1 egg
1/2 c vegetable oil
1 c of sugar

Mix everything but the sugar together in a bowl until it's well mixed and sticky. Take a quarter to half-dollar size glob of mixture and roll it between your hands. Once you have it in a ball, roll it in the sugar until it's coated.

Bake on cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Enjoy!

I hope you enjoy the cookies and the book!
