If you know what’s good for you, you’ll go back to Dallas.
Since coming home Sutton has inherited herself a heap of headaches, two bossy men who want her for their own, threatening notes, and a whole lot of trouble in Paradise.
Having Doc McNab as competition, being ten years Sutton’s senior, and under her employ, meant the deck was stacked against Flint Palmer when it came to winning the sexy, vivacious Sutton as his woman. No way would she be interested in an old, worn-out, ex-rodeo cowboy like him, but that wasn’t going to stop the man from trying.
With the exception of the pretty as a picture, Sutton Callaway, Kale McNab’s childhood sucked. He’d been jerked up more so than raised by his ex-convict of a father, eventually leaving the girl and West Texas behind. Now, he’s all grown and back in Sutton’s life, willing to do whatever it takes to stay there.
After propping up the hood, Sutton stood on her tip toes, waved a hand about in an effort to keep the smoke from her face, and glanced at the guts of the truck—as if she would know what she was looking for. She supposed the doing made her feel as if she were taking proactive measures about the situation, until the coughing started. Perhaps sticking her head beneath the hood hadn’t been the best idea.
Covering her nose with one hand, still swiping the foul air with the other, she took a step back. The breeze kicked up and blew another puff of nasty at her. She coughed yet again and stomped a booted foot on the pavement, irritated.

Kale’s morning had royally sucked. He hated when he had to put down an animal, and as a result, he’d pretty much been in a mood when Flint called him about Maeflower. He sure hoped he didn’t have to put two horses down in the same day, a fact he’d been grumbling about under his breath when he jumped in his truck. But after leaving his office and driving down Main Street, he saw something with the potential to vastly improve his afternoon.
The corner’s of Kale’s mouth turned up into a smile as he pulled his F-150 dual cab into the parking lot of Dunning’s, watching Sutton Callaway doing the hippy, hippy, shake in tight daisy dukes, a faded turquoise T-shirt, and turquoise cowgirl boots.
God bless Texas.
I smiled when I read this question, because when it comes to distractions that keep me from writing, there isn’t five. There’s one. A major one. LIFE. It never fails. I sit down to write and the phone rings. The doorbell chimes and I have a surprise visit from family I haven’t seen in years. A major crisis hits. Health problems. The AC guys need to turn off my power in order to get a possum out of the unit (true story). The fire department shows up en masse overtaking my lawn because the house behind me has a fire blazing in their garage (true story). So, yeah. Life and its unpredictability is always the biggest distraction.
I love: Coca-Cola, anything chocolate, reading, writing, singing, dancing, movies, listening to thunder storms, watching it rain, the mountains, the ocean, orchids, great smiles, and guys with brooding eyes and great scowls.
So, I write erotic romance (mostly) although I have one or two sweet romances bopping around out there in the great big world of published books. If you want to know more about them, this is the place you can find out.
If you want to know a little bit more about me, you can find me on social media, you know, Facebook, Twitter and such. Oh, and you are cordially invited to come join my FB group Slip Between the Pages with London where you can ask me about any of my books, or if you just want to talk about something random such as the best way to make a horrible meatloaf, I’m your girl. *Smiles* We have a lot of fun in that group. *Whispers conspiratorially* Sometimes we spike the punch. Shh…Don’t tell.
