Bees in springHello everyone! It’s hot, hot, hot here. Hope you’re all somewhere you can find a spot in the shade. I’m working on a story that takes place during the winter months, so maybe this will help lower your temperature a bit. 🙂

Today I’m sharing a snippet from Breed True, Eclipse Heat Book 7.

When Julie heard the snow crunch behind her, instead of turning to greet his approach, she pulled the blanket tighter around her shoulders, shielding herself from her new husband as much as from the cold.

 

“Thinking of walking out of here?” he asked when he stood behind her shoulder, not touching, but so close that she could feel his heat.

 

“No,” she answered him honestly, “I was wondering what keeps your enemies from sneaking through the woods and catching you asleep.”

 

He relaxed into an easier stance as he laid big hands on her shoulders, pulling her back against his chest. “I do.”

 

“One man can’t guard a border this long.”

 

“Listen.” He tilted his head, emitting a rasping call, the sound floating through the air toward the woods. In a moment, answering calls echoed through the trees, as the sentinels guarding Hawks Nest reported to each other and Grady. “You’re safe with me, Julie Hawks.”

Desperate to give her twin daughters a decent life, Julie Fulton agrees to marry Grady Hawks and produce the son he needs to inherit Hawks Nest ranch. At the end of a year, child or not, Julie will receive enough money to escape to San Francisco and leave behind her rough existence.

Grady intends to breed back to the fair skin and Scottish features of his father and Julie meets every requirement. Her red hair and pale skin are an excellent way to dilute Grady’s half Kiowa blood. If Julie breeds true, their child will prove that the Hawks family is “white” enough to own Texas land.

The formula is right, but the outcome unexpected. Siring a son is the last thing on Grady’s mind when he discovers pleasure in Julie’s bed. And San Francisco no longer seems like paradise to Julie when she finds heaven in Grady’s arms.

Hi everyone. I’m sharing another snippet from Wolf’s Tender, part of my McCallister Bounty Hunters trilogy. Then next week, I’ll move onto Breed True, Eclipse Heat Book 7.

“Gawk at something else besides me,” Naomi told Charlie, exasperated at his boldness when he held out his hand, indicating it was time for her to quit the water. He snorted at her attempt at modesty and wrapped the blanket around her, rubbing the drying cloth across her hair before scooping cream from a tin and plopping it onto her head.

 

“Work that into the snarls, then rinse it out.”

 

“What’s in it?” she asked suspiciously, sniffing the mixture that smelled like him, or at least the spicy wood scent she associated with him.

 

“What difference does it make; just rub it in your hair.”

 

“You make this?” she asked after she’d rinsed his concoction from her head and discovered the snarls had disappeared.

 

“No, my mother makes it for me,” he growled.

 

“You have a mother?” she blurted, surprised because he didn’t look like a man with a mother, let alone a mother who made beauty products for his hair.

 

“Did you think I was born in a cave with wolves?”

 

Naomi ignored Charlie’s sarcasm because frankly, she could picture him living in a cave with wolves.

Wolf'S Tender 253 Miss Naomi Parker, deportment instructor at the Sparrow Creek Young Ladies Academy, can’t forgive herself for hiding during an outlaw attack. When the local sheriff refuses to pursue the gang of renegades who kidnapped her students, she decides to rescue the girls herself. But, she needs the help of the best tracker in the territory—half-Kiowa bounty hunter, Charlie Wolf McCallister.

Before he goes out on another bounty hunt, Charlie wants a long soak in a hot bath, a bottle of whiskey, and the pleasure of a woman’s company. He has two out of three when a school marm with cornflower-blue eyes invades his privacy.

After he explains that he only works for pay, Miss Parker offers Charlie one night of sexual favors in exchange for his tracking services. Though he knows bedding a white woman will cause all kinds of trouble, he operates on the philosophy that a bird in hand is better than no bird at all.

After they’ve sealed their bargain, Charlie tries to leave Naomi safely behind. But the opinionated teacher insists on accompanying him. She’s impatient with his decisions, questions his authority, and generally ignores his warnings. But each time they make love, Naomi captures another piece of Charlie Wolf’s heart.

When one straight-laced spinster tenders her body to one cynical sometimes savage, the unexpected bounty is love.
