So, here we are again. I’m getting better at the regular posting, eh?
Today, I’ve a treat for you all — I’ve got an exclusive excerpt from London Saint James’ latest Roane Publishing release, Welcome to Paradise.
Before I tease you with the texts, let me give you the details on the eBook.
by London Saint James
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance (Western)
Keywords: Romance, Contemporary, Western, Erotic, Novella, Series
Release Date: August 18, 2014
Description: Just three days before her thirtieth birthday, Acquisition Editor for Starling Press, Sutton Callaway, has buried the last of her family in the cemetery on the plot of land she inherited.
After turning down the powerful and wealthy owner of Triple Bar-S Ranch to sell her inheritance and walk away from the obligations of running one of the biggest cattle ranches in West Texas, Sutton puts her Dallas condo on the market, resigns her position from SP, packs the contents of her life into boxes, and heads for the one place filled with bittersweet memories—Paradise Ranch.
Will Sutton be able to handle the pressures of being the newly appointed cattle baroness, the rough and tumble men under her employ, and the temptation of a sexy mystery man? Or will her grandmother’s matriarchal boots be too big for her to fill?
Now for the best part… the teaser.
“They’re already eating the pit beef BBQ you had catered in, and I suspect if you want to actually taste any, you should call it a day in here.”
I looked at him from over my shoulder, file drawer open. “I’ll be right out.”
He bobbed his chin at me.
“Oh, hey,” I said just as he turned for the door. He stopped, twisted around, and stared. “You wouldn’t happen to have any idea where my grandmother would have filed the bills from Tucker’s Truck Repair, would you?”
“Try under C.”
I frowned. “Why C.?”
“For crook,” he said with a shrug of his shoulders. “That’s what your grandmother said every time she had to send any of our trucks over to his shop.”
I cracked a smile. “She called Tucker Macinroy a crook?”
“Yup. Sadie always said Tucker was part of the good ole’ boy club who committed high way robbery around these parts.”
Chuckling, I closed the file drawer and opened the one with A-C printed on the little square card on the front. I ruffled my fingers along the top of the manila files, coming to one file tab marked CROOK. Sure enough, inside were the year’s paid bills for Tucker’s shop.
Smiling, I spun on my heel, file in hand. “You’re right,” I declared, only I was speaking to no one but myself. Flint, who I suspected of having honed the traits of a stealthy ninja, had left the building.
I placed the folder on the desk, tugged at the bottom of my pale blue eyelet shirt, took a deep breath, and headed for the door. I was ready to officially meet all my employees, and secretly excited to finally put a name to the face of the mystery man I’d seen only once on the first early morning after coming home.
