Welcome to the world of horse racing! For the next few weeks we’ll be featuring excerpts from Detour Ahead, Book Four in our Rider’s Up Series. Each book can be read as a stand-alone, and all four books are always available FREE at KU.

Danger, suspense, stunning race horses,
courageous heroines, and the
complicated men who love them!

We’re still careening down the twisty detour with Traci Steele, from Detour Ahead. 

EXCERPT

A twenty mph curve loomed in front of her. She slowed, made the turn, and sped up again. How far could civilization be?

“Good God!” She screamed, slamming both feet on the brake pedal. Her mouth fell open at the sight of the largest animal she’d ever seen up close sauntering into the left-hand lane. He was huge. And he was obviously and enormously male. The mammoth range bull was followed closely by seven of his harem.

The great beast came to a halt directly in front of her car and turned its head to stare at her.

BLURB

Hot-shot Chicago prosecuting attorney Traci Steele works tirelessly keeping rapists off the street to prevent other women from suffering the hell she’s endured, so she resists her friends’ insistence that she take a two month R&R in their California Live Oak condo—until they persuade her to help their rancher friend as a private investigator.

Though he runs the stables at Live Oak, well-muscled mustached wrangler Scott McCord much prefers working with the race horses he trains at his ranch, and he can’t believe his old friends have sent a greenhorn female to help him with horse troubles.

The improbable dance between this mismatched pair barely fits in around the escalating suspense of whoever’s after Scott’s horses. Traci is as tenacious in her sleuthing as she is terrified about her inability to ever love a man. Can Scott succeed in gentling her – like he does his horses – before she flees in panic?

We’re still careening down the twisty detour with Traci Steele, from Detour Ahead. Will the sunshine bring her some relief?

EXCERPT

Brilliant sunshine suddenly broke through the clouds. “Yes,” she cried—how quickly things changed here! On a rare straightaway, she scrunched her shoulders forward and rotated her head, trying to ease tension and strain in her neck muscles.

She glanced quickly up the hillside and saw countless boulders dotting the landscape, making it look like nature’s private graveyard.

Her spirits sagged. It was no use. Even here she was never far from that gaping hole. Her father’s gravestone was already up—it had been there beside her mother’s, waiting to receive him since before she could remember. That had always bothered her. She remembered the first time she’d been old enough to read the words, her tiny hand held securely in his. She’d looked from his name on the stone, up into his face, and back at the stone again. Had he known, even then, he would never remarry?

I’m surprised you have enough time for me… #EroticRomance #MWTease #MFRWAuthor

Welcome to MidWeek Tease, where authors share tempting snippets to tide you over till the weekend. A huge shout out to author Angelica Dawson for hosting our blog hop every week!

Our newest release is the finale of our Meghan’s Playhouse series, now available at Extasy Books and Amazon. We can hardly wait to see how readers react to Meg’s happy ending – after all, she’s never been one to settle down, and she’ll say a resounding “no” to anyone who wants her to change.

Picking up where we left off in our last Midweek Tease, their first encounter after Clark’s arrival at the theater continues…

EXCERPT

“A perfect match,” Meg cooed. “You’ll love Camila. And if you and she become a couple, I’ll still be able to party with the two of you now and then.”

Meg giggled. “Do you remember that older couple from the cruise ship who were coming on to April and Brad?”

Clark nodded.

“They live in Milwaukee. The four of them get together a couple times a year.”

“Incredible.”

“Age doesn’t matter.” Meg frowned at him. “I’ve told you that before. If you weren’t so hung up on appearances, you could’ve found out for yourself. Josie never would’ve thought you were trying to climb the theater ladder by joining us.”

“I’ve been with older women. I don’t doubt your premise about age.”

“Besides, you’re as established now as Josie.”

“Hardly,” Clark responded. “I’m surprised you have enough time for me.”

“Shows you what you know.” She elbowed him. “You’re the only non-married man I’ve ever had a continuing relationship with.”

 

 

BLURB

Summer Theater, scenic mountains, a fabulous acting role, partners of both genders—Meg has it made. Is there any room for an old flame?

When Meghan Keenan’s old flame Clark Hendricks unexpectedly shows up at the Summer Shakespeare Festival where she has a leading role, Meg has a brilliant inspiration: he’ll be perfect for Camila, the hot Latina who currently shares Meg’s bed. If Meg’s scheme works, she can continue to enjoy sexy escapades with both of them.

Clark has a different idea. He’s come to the Festival with one goal in mind: to marry Meg. Will Camila buy into the plan and help him spark Meg’s jealousy? Can Clark escape this tempting triangle unscathed? And if he does, can he claim his would-be bride before she flees in panic?
