About the Author

Keri Ford was raised in South Arkansas on a farm surrounded by family, horses, cows, donkeys, ostriches, emus, chickens, ducks, Canadian Geese, and enough dogs one would think they were a pound…and then she bought a Cosmopolitan when she was twenty-two. All it took was one excerpt of a sexy romantic suspense and her life would never be the same. Well, parts of it. She still lives on that farm.

Review by Stephanie O: I absolutely fell in love with this book. From the start you can't help but fall in love with Nicolette. She is amazing! Armed with a simple "to-do" list she plans to make this a week to remember. Drew comes into town to help his cousin and prove to his father is ready to run the family business. Then that little thing called Fate happens. Watching her dance in the bar, Drew is held captive and can't look away. What starts out as a simple, "Yeah, I'll keep my eye on her." Turns out to be the very thing that is his undoing. A wonderful story full of simple adventures, laughter, heartbreak, and love. You won't want to put this book down. Favorite Quote: "What?" He swallowed. "I like your natural look." "Well that's good, 'cause bet I look as natural as a drowned rat right about now." "A sexy rat."

Get ready for a sweet seduction that is full of charm, endearing characters and loads of fun. In the Hay has a delightful hero and heroine that pull at the heartstrings, making the journey one a reader will remember. A reader meets Nicolette and Drew right at the cross roads of their lives. Neither of them knows what they will both mean to the other but the author set the story up beautifully. The lead characters start things off in a safe manner, laying down the ground rules and expectations. They had one explosive and memorable scene that resulted in quite a few emotional time bombs. Then, one got cold feet. However, fate would not be thwarted; their relationship got a second chance and the heat only piled up from there. Lucky for me. Ms. Ford has a unique and amusing sense of fun and the ridiculous because she has Nicolette exploring all the things she'd always wanted to do with her life. None of them are harmful but they gave the hero an opportunity he'd never had before - chances to be free, to explore the little boy inside. Both Drew and Nicolette have bowed under the expectations that their families have placed upon them. They have tried and tried to conform and earn their respect, and in this book, the time for change and learning about themselves and what they truly want is upon them. This time, they are going to be true to their inner child and the rest of the world can go fly a kite. Actually, I think Nicolette would enjoy doing that, as well as on top of the kiddie pool and a bunch of other interesting things. My absolute favorite part in this whole book, when it comes to choosing something off of the heroine's wish list, is the slip and slide. I adored how the author wrote that scene. It was zany, fun and totally off the wall. And, it was romantic and sweet and made me laugh. In fact that is something I did frequently throughout this story - laugh. And the cutest part about that scene? The hero wanted to do it again. This book should have reached a higher rating and it was almost there. What held it back were some inconsistencies in the writing. There was a jarring scene of head hopping early on, a cinnamon taste that shouldn't have been there (it should have been beer), and the missing shoes that were and were not, all at the same time. It was how the scene was written; something was left out. Plus a few misspellings as well as the bouncing between Lette and Nicolette until the author found her stride. I really wish the editor had looked a bit closer because this book deserved better. One thing that is high quality in this story is the sensual build up. Each scene: every time Drew looked into Nicolette's eyes, every time she smiled at him and the enthusiasm in which the heroine explored the physical side of their relationship, led them closer and closer to falling in love. He fought it, she embraced it and when they tried to keep it relegated to their earlier arrangement, they both hurt. Ms. Ford had no problems reaching my emotions; she made me care for her characters. I wanted them to be happy but I understood the need to do what they did. It cleared the air for them, made them see clearly for the first time in their lives what they were chasing and what they should have been seeking all along. That revelation and the sweet reunion was pure romance. It made everything that came before worth it. Read the Full Review at The Long and Short of It Romance Reviews

I honestly think In The Hay was my favorite so far in Keri's Apple Trail series. It was cute, quirky, heartfelt and just overall sweet. To the point that I had a shimmer of tears in my eyes at the climax (cough cough, not THAT climax). I found the characters of Drew and Nicholette to be perfectly matched. They were truly meant for each other. Nicholette with her indecisiveness though she knew what she wanted when it was staring at her. Drew with his life plan that wouldn't know what he needed if it hit him over the head with a baseball bat. Together they were fireworks on a warm summer night. Drew was such a sweetheart. Trying to tell himself that Nicholette was just a fling. I wanted to slap him in the back of the head. Wake up boy.your heart doesn't go pitter patter for a fling. Silly man. You don't try to make the other person smile and laugh if you just want to get laid. Nicholette has changed her life direction several times. The age old question of "what do you want to be when your grown up?" still unanswered. Dog sitting was supposed to clear her head.not complicate her life. The appearance of Drew startles her. This virgin is about to get a lesson in sex..and love. She actually Googles how to perform sex acts. How cute is that? Speaking of sex acts. Oh my. Front, back, shower, up and down.nothing is left to wonder about. Keri definitely knows how to ignite the pages. Her scenes are scorching without feeling overdone. Sexy without being dirty..okay maybe just a bit dirty. *wink wink* I think the reason I connect with Keri's work is because it FEELS real. It feels like someplace I've been before. When I read a Keri Ford book I just.feel. I feel love, annoyance, sadness. I laugh. A lot. The full array. I experience the sensations with the characters. I'm there with them. Keri's writing is realistic, right down to her characters Googling sex acts. I find that this type of experience doesn't happen often for me. In most books it feels like a movie in my head. I can see, hear and smell.but not feel. It's nice to experience the difference with Keri's work. I do believe Keri Ford is hitting her stride with her third addition to the Apple Trail series. She weaves a quick, sexy story with ease. This is a one-sitting novella that will knock your uninhibited socks off! Nikki- Ramblings From A Chaotic Mind
