Riders Up

Book Three:

Willow Smoke

This May/September romantic suspense follows the teenage waif from the group home where Cassie worked in Book One. No longer a teenager, Daisy is carving a life for herself in spite of threats from her past.


The sputtering sounds of the apartment buzzer penetrated Daisy’s sleep. She rolled over and pulled a pillow over her head. The buzzer continued ringing sporadically. “Go away,” she grumbled. “It’s Monday. It’s my day off.”

Scrambling off the futon, she grabbed her robe and poked her arms through the armholes as she strode angrily toward the entry. She’d have to remember to get the landlord to fix that damn buzzer. Maybe she should just snip the wires.

Daisy peered through the peephole and grew deathly still. Why had he come? She didn’t want him to know this part of her world. With fingers trembling slightly, she turned the knob and opened the door.

  1. I’ve tried the pillow over the ear thing – it never works. Le sigh!
    Great spot to leave us at. Who is at the door and why isn’t she happy?!?!?!

  2. Great hook – very intriguing snippet, leaving the reader with sevral questions – and I just love the cover (although anything with a horse on tends to get my vote! 🙂 )

    • Thanks, Hywela, always glad to keep a reader guessing. And YES to horses on book covers!

  4. As a night owl, I definitely empathized with her annoyance at a too-early visitor!

  7. An unexpected visitor at a time you want to be sleeping? Not the best foot to start a day on. And it seems like it’s going to get worse for her.
