Happy Saturday Everyone.  Haven't visited in awhile - I guess you could say I've been on summer vacation.  Not really, because I have been busy writing.  In addition to this latest release, I do have a couple of other this coming up within the next month or two.

Today, I'm featuring my latest release The Doctor and Her Rancher.

After 35-year old Lauren Bancroft’s parents are killed in a helicopter crash, she leaves her medical practice in LA and takes up the position of town doctor, at Carsonville, a small township in Montana with view of the majestic Rocky Mountains.  On arrival, she is greeted by the tall, handsome rancher, Trace, Connors, chairman of the town council and owner of the Double Pines Ranch.

This is the story of two strong independent people and how they come together and work out their differences.

In this scene, Lauren has arrived at her new living quarters which is a cottage on Double Pines Ranch in Carsonville and meets Trace Connors in person for the first time. He invites her for dinner and they spend the evening getting to know each other.  After Lauren has told him about her life, she asks whether he is married and he explains that he wants a traditional marriage and he is still looking for the right person who shares his values. 

 “What is your definition of a traditional marriage?” Lauren asks.

“Okay, here’s where it gets me in trouble every time.  Maybe the fact that we’re not in a relationship will make this easier to explain.  Anyway, I think one person should lead in any relationship – much like a dancing partner.  Two leaders don’t work and I think it’s the same way in a marriage.”

“So you think men should be the “boss” so to speak.”

“I think it could be either man or woman, but there has to be one leader, one person who gets the final say.  In my relationship,  I know that it would have to be me. It’s the way I’m wired.”

“Sounds reasonable, I guess.  I’ve never given it much thought.”

“Let me tell you when I’ve answered that question before, I haven’t exactly been the most popular person in the room.”

  1. Love this excerpt, and I can well imagine why his answer to that question would not make him popular among the more modern feminists of the day. Nope, he wouldn't be popular at all.

    1. Thank you Mistress Blake for stopping by, and so early too.

  2. Congratulations on the new release Sunny, and more to come, yay! Love the sound of this and enjoyed the excerpt. A favorable response from Lauren...a good start :)


    1. Thank you Roz. Well, they haven't started anything yet.

  3. Yeah it's out! This is a good enough explanation for the average questioner - but I feel there is just a little more that should be explained to someone willing to enter into a real relationship!

  4. Unconventional but definitely apropos

  5. I like his answer too, and I love the fact that both characters are strong and independent.

    1. I'm not big on doormats so I like strong, independent too.

  6. All best to make these things clear up front, even if it makes you the most unpopular person in the room!

  7. Hi Sunny, congratulations on your new release! It sounds great, and I loved this snippet. I like the analogy with the dancing partner, and can see why the poor man has had trouble in the past. :)




Thanks for stopping by. Love to know you were here.
