Tagline: Sometimes a wrong turn takes you to the right place.

Setup: They haven’t known each other long. Jase invited Brenna for dinner. He hesitated to tell her where they’d be going…


He placed his hand over her arm, playing two fingers over her skin. “Is it all right with you? I would have asked sooner, but I feared you’d say no.”

“Um…um.” Oh, damn, now what? Alone with him under the stars. In front of that big Superstition?

“Brenna?” He stretched over and stroked her chin, turning her face toward him. “You can trust me. I’ve had more than one chance to ravish you. I could right now, right here.”

But what about trusting herself? Her insides tumbled like an offset dryer. “Okay,” she managed to get out. “I like homemade steak—especially the badass kind.” Her voice was higher than she recognized as her own. Was it fear? Kind of—but maybe not the kind of fear she had expected. He wasn’t the one she was afraid of. Her body’s reaction to him is what caused her fear.

Sensual Contemporary Western Romance

Coming Early September 2014

What is this book about?

Rancher Jase Carlson doesn’t understand the ache in the hollow of his chest, since his ex-wife ripped his heart out. She doesn’t follow the court rules where his children are concerned, making him even more pissed off. Harboring a bad attitude, he wishes he wasn’t a gentleman when he comes to the aid of a hot-headed, sexy blonde. He can’t allow her tight jeans and sweet smile to sway him, even after he’s coerced into spending time alone with her.

Brenna Page has too many of her own issues to deal with at the moment, not to mention being guardian to her rebellious sixteen-year-old sister. The last thing she needs is a grudge-filled cowboy…but his intense blue eyes and muscles-to-die-for, say something she’s never heard before.

One wrong turn. Two broken families. Brought together by chance…and need.


Let me tell you ahead of time that Jase is one to be reckoned with. He’s a hero after my own heart.
