Hi everyone! Whew, what a week! One set of edits finished, another book formatted and uploaded. I’m ready to kick back today and enjoy some fantastic snippets. Find more Weekend Writing Warriors  here.

I’m sharing another snippet today from Tupelo Gold, currently available on Amazon for pre-buy @ 99¢. It will release May 3.

 “For better or worse, Comfort,” Hamilton said gruffly. “We made vows that didn’t get real specific, but I’d say they cover this situation.”

 

“You presented yourself as truthful and my vows were pledged to that man. Having discovered he doesn’t exist, I feel no compulsion  to ‘honor or obey’ the real Hamilton Quince.” It wasn’t the tepid response Comfort had planned but her thoughts formed into heated words, escaping before she could stop them.

 

“Wasn’t sure what I’d do, and wasn’t looking forward to this,” he answered, pausing long enough for her to understand that this referred to their current conversation.”It’s time to iron this thing out.”

 

“Telling me that you’re moving us to the ranch is not ‘ironing things out’; I’m not a wrinkled dress to be pressed into tidy accord, Hamilton.”

 

“The children need a mama,” he growled, “and you said you wanted to be a mother.”

 

Comfort should have known he’d save his best argument for last.

tupelogold_final Kris 253Comfort Parker Bailey Quince wears her string of names with pride. Before she married Owen Bailey, she was a Parker, from Perry County, Alabama. She wasn’t one of the highfalutin branch. Comfort belonged to the scrabble in the dust, do anything to survive including sell herself for food, poorer side of the Parker clan. But, she dreams of being rich someday and studies a copy of Godey’s Lady’s Book, determined to learn the mannerisms of her more affluent kin.

Though her tall, curvaceous figure, creamy skin, and thick wavy hair might  be considered an advantage by some, her beauty often proves more of a curse when she’s forced to outwit men in order to survive. After Comfort’s abusive husband is killed, Hamilton Quince, sweeps her into a second marriage with the assurance he’ll always love and protect her.

Comfort’s plan to continue as a business woman residing in town, abruptly comes to a halt. Hamilton produces a ready-made family and expects her to move from her Eclipse boardinghouse to his VERY rustic cabin on the Double-Q ranch.She’s tempted to end the marriage and say goodbye.But leaving her husband isn’t that easy. Comfort’s finally discovered a love more precious than gold.

April 9, 2016.

Hi everyone. I hope you’re all well and having a wonderful spring. I hear the flower garden in our backyard calling to me and as soon as I’m sure it won’t snow again, grrrr… I’ll answer the call. (Pictured right, last week’s snow fall.)

I’m sharing another snippet today from Eclipse Heat, Book 4, Tupelo Gold, currently available for pre-buy @ 99¢. It will release May 3.

“I’m not going, your ranch house is primitive,” she said flatly.

 

“Guess you’ll have to civilize it and me, Comfort. Sounds like a big task; best get started.”

 

“Hamilton Quince how can you do this? I refuse to give into this coercion.”

 

“I do this because you love me as much as I love you,and that’s a hell of a lot of loving considering I haven’t had any in recent memory.”

 

He crossed the floor,took her into his arms,and kissed any further protest away. When he’d rendered her both breathless and speechless, he stepped back. Cupping her chin, Hamilton tilted her head until her gaze met his.

 

“Pack or not, argue or not, you’re moving to the ranch.”
