It could be fatal to trust a woman… #sundaysnippet #MFRWauthor #Giveaway #sunday8


This month we’re giving away one autographed print copy of Detour Ahead. The giveaway starts tomorrow, February 2, and lasts all month – of course, you can always read it free at Kindle Unlimited! Contest details after our Sunday Snippet.

Book Four in our Riders Up series is the story of Cassie’s best friend, Tracy Steele. Mourning the recent death of her father and unable to concentrate in her job as a top county prosecutor in Chicago, Tracy gives in to Cassie’s pressure to take a break—for two months, in a time share north of San Diego. Following a harrowing drive on a winding detour, Tracy finally pulls in at the resort, unaware that Scott McCord—the man Cassie wants her to help—is watching her.

Here’s Scott’s reaction:


No doubt the woman was Traci Steele. She fit Cassie Travers’s description. Hair as black as night falling below her shoulders, and tall.

She might only be a few inches shorter than him, and he was six one even. And there weren’t a lot of single women in and out of Live Oak. It was a nice enough resort, but it wasn’t Club Med.

The Chicagoan was a looker, all right. Very nicely proportioned. Yep, Traci Steele looked as attractive as Cassie had bragged her up to be.

But he wasn’t interested in a woman—no matter how attractive or how intriguing. And he definitely was not interested in a lawyer. It could be fatal to trust a woman, and it damn near just about had to be fatal to trust a female lawyer.


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 racehorses 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?
