Read an Excerpt

Krista North pulled the souvenir bandana from the pocket of her jeans shorts and used it to blot the perspiration gathering on her cheeks and neck. Damn, it was hot. Not even the faintest of breezes stirred the leaves of the giant oaks surrounding the party area or the crepe myrtles standing guard in their rock beds.

She didn’t think she’d ever seen so many people jammed into one space at the same time, even though the space was huge. At the bar. At the barbecue buffet table. Seated at the round tables that had been set up. Or just jammed together in clusters claiming whatever space they could find. And all of them seemed to be talking at the same time, at a fever pitch loud enough to be heard over the band playing off to one side.

Leaning against a tree at the edge of the crowd, she let her eyes travel to the horizon. The Lone Eagle Ranch stretched as far as she could see. Lynn had told her it was more than fifty thousand acres, one of the five largest in the state, and ran an enormous herd of Santa Gertrudis cattle. Besides the ranch, the owner, Clint Brody, had invested his money in real estate, electronics and an oil recovery firm. The chatter on the street was that whatever he touched made money.

She had yet to meet the man himself. She’d seen photos of him in the newspaper, usually with some gorgeous female on his arm, sometimes two. He smacked of arrogance, although he’d probably earned the right. He was also, at least in black and white, the sexiest man she’d ever seen. She wouldn’t mind having him star in a few of her sexual fantasies. Of course, her chances of meeting him in this unruly mob scene were slim to none.

Krista tilted the bottle of Lone Star beer in her hand and took a long, refreshing sip, wondering how the hell she’d ever let herself be talked into coming here to begin with. Oh, yes. Lynn. Her new self-appointed social director.

“Come on,” she’d urged, waving the invitation in front of Krista’s face. “I don’t want to go alone, and you can’t spend your life cooped up in your apartment.”

“Where’s Scott?”

Lynn and Scott lived in the apartment just below hers. Except for work hours, she seldom saw one without the other.

“Taking care of family business in Montana.” She heaved a sigh of exasperation.

Krista’s eyebrows lifted. “On Labour Day weekend?”

“Yeah. He was ready to leave for the airport when they had a huge storm. The roads are washed out. Can you believe it? Everyone in Texas wants to go to Clint Brody’s annual bash and poor Scott is stuck in the boonies.”

“Just how did you get the invite?”

“Our firm handles the web site for the ranch so we all get to spend one day a year pretending we live up there with the rich folks. Scott insisted I go, and I refuse to show up solo.” Lynn put on her poor-me face. “Come on, sweetie. You’ve been here five months and you’ve hardly met anyone.

True, but for good reason. She’d had enough of people in her other life, especially Douglas who’d freaked out when she’d wanted to spice up their sex life. No, she was better off at home with her prized collection of toys and her fantasies.

Meet the Author

I always wanted adventure and change in my life, and I certainly got it. I grew up in Maine, a beautiful place to live, then lived in the Midwest and Florida. Now I make my home in the Hill Country of Texas, truly God's chosen place on earth. My husband, David, is a sixth generation Texan, tracing his roots here back to the time when Texas was a Republic, so retiring here was a dream we finally fulfilled. I've had a lot of firsts in my life – first female sports report on The Michigan Daily at the University of Michigan; first woman to own a rock and roll agency in Detroit, the home of Motown; first woman president of the Pasco (Florida) Economic Development Council. I graduated from the University of Michigan with a double major in English and History, and a minor in economics., and went on to have at least four careers. When my children were small, I satisfied my need for writing by working for weekly newspapers. I had a wild and wacky time managing rock and roll bands. I joined the insanity of retail with a string of shoe stores. I worked in fundraising, public affairs and community relations. But writing fiction was always my dream. I had a lot of stops and starts, but it wasn't until we retired that I could devote myself to it full time. My wonderful husband, David, encourages me and supports me in my dream. Our children are all grown and on their own, and are my biggest fans. When I'm not writing I'm an avid reader – anything and everything – and watching football, especially my beloved Michigan Wolverines. David and I golf and target shoot., and of course enjoy life in the gorgeous Texas Hill Country, where most of my stories are based. I am a member of Romance Writers of America, and San Antonio Romance Authors, Diamond State Romance Authors, and Passionate Ink chapter of RWA.

First of all it's only 47 pages. It was not very descriptive and lacked any depth. Even if you are only looking for a quick hot read, this is not for you. Some of the worst erotica i have ever read by this author.
