Welcome to 2015 - I'm wishing this year doesn't go as fast as the last one - it will though because wishing won't make it so. Hope everybody's hoidays were as terrific as mine. The holidays can sometimes be a traumatic time of year for some, luckily that wasn't the case for me this year. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I don't have a new book to hawk, haven't been doing any writing, so I'm back to giving another snippet from The Star-Crossed Cowboy, a modern western romance between Starr Winslow and Jude Barlow. Starr Winslow becomes the owner of Whispering Pines Ranch after the death of her father. Starr is young and loves ranching and is not about to allow her family's legacy to go to ruin. She knows some men have a hard time taking orders from a woman and that she will have to hire a Ranch Foreman who can take orders from a woman. Enter Jude Barlow.
Today's snippet takes place after Jude has been hired as the Ranch Foreman but his employment has been officially announced. He gets a telephone call from Starr's friend say she is drunk and needs a ride home. He is annoyed and wondering just how this would be in his job description and that he and Starr were going to have to discuss more ground rules.
He shook his head and wondered how this came under the job description of Ranch Foreman; they were going to have to discuss more ground rules. When he gets to the roadhouse he finds that although she is tipsy, she is far from drunk and it was just a ploy to get him there so she could dance with him.
“You’re damn right; I'm annoyed...
“I’m sorry; I didn’t think.”
“You’re damn right you didn’t think. You need a good spanking, and I have half a mind to give you what you deserve.”
“Then, why don’t you?”
“Because you’re my boss.”
“Not now I’m not; I'm just a girl you’re driving home.”
“Don’t tempt me.”
There's some poetic license here - the eight lines rule which I usually break but since it's a new year, I thought I would obey the rules for a change. If you want to read more, just click on any of the links below.Amazon
