Big Easy (Cowboy Craze) by [Hunter, Sable]

There’s nothing like a first impression.

Big Easy Blackhawk is used to women falling at his feet. After all, he’s a sexy, free-wheeling cowboy with a devil-may-care smile. Half the women in the Lone Star state would love to rope and wrangle him to the altar – but Easy’s got other ideas. He believes in spreading as much joy to the fairer sex as possible. With a well-earned reputation for loving them and leaving them, Easy has no plans to settle down.

Needing to put some distance between him and his family, he heads to South Louisiana to work on Philip McCoy’s Belle Chasse Ranch. To his shock, his first day on the bayou brings him face to face with the one woman who changes everything for Easy. He’s knocked for a loop – thunderstruck – completely bowled over by the girl next door, Jewel Baptiste.

When a man meets his soulmate, he badly wants to make a good first impression.

Unfortunately for Easy, Jewel is the one woman who can see into his soul. A palm reader by trade, she is the real deal – a woman who lives practical magic. Although she admits being attracted to him, Jewel refuses to date Easy – she doesn’t intend on being the next in his long line of conquests. But the sweet, handsome hunk is one hard man to resist. Jewel finds there are hidden depths to this Casanova. For the promise of true love, a man can change.

Easy is willing to give up one-night stands for that one woman he can’t bear to be without for even one single night.

Be warned – this is a hot, passion filled love story – full of adventure, Louisiana lore, the paranormal, and a murder mystery that will have you on the edge of your seat.

Come join Easy and Jewel on their journey to forever.

 Excerpt

“Is she pretty?” Jewel asked. “I haven’t seen her since she was a young teenager.”

Easy dawdled his head back and forth in uncertainty. “I guess you could say so.”

Jewel burst out laughing. “It’s not good form to tell your date that you think another woman is pretty, is it?”

Reaching across to capture her hand, Easy leaned across the table. “It’s hard for me to remember what another woman looks like when I’m in the presence of your beauty.”

His unbelievable compliment stole Jewel’s breath. “Oh, Easy, you don’t have to flatter me unnecessarily. I know my limitations. I saw your face the first day we met. You only flirted with me out of habit.”

Easy shook his head, his fingers busy entwining themselves with hers. “You were unexpected. Completely unlike anyone I’ve ever known. Each time I’m with you, I’m struck by how much I’m drawn to you. In my eyes, you grow more lovely every time I see you.”

Jewel didn’t know what to say. His seeming sincerity belied everything she knew about him. “You’re not going to need to add any sugar to your tea. There’s too much sweetness spilling from your lips.”

Easy could see how uncertain she appeared to be. “Good thing I have all night to convince you how attracted to you I really am.”

Jewel pulled her hand from his and began worrying the stones on her wrist. “Let’s talk about something else. Enjoy each other’s company.”

“Good idea. I intend to enjoy everything about you.” He leaned back to make room for their food.

Once the waitress departed, she watched Easy dig into his meal. Jewel was so wound up, she found she had no appetite. Taking her fork, she proceeded to move her food around on her plate. “Easy, tell me about yourself. Tell me something no one else knows.”

“What?” he asked, a bit self-consciously. “You want to know my weaknesses?”

“Not necessarily. Tell me your strengths. Your secrets.” She picked up her napkin and folded it three times until it was a small square. “I just want a piece of you to hold on to.”

“Will you return the favor?” he asked. “I mean, if I expose myself to you…” Easy gave her a smile full of mischief. “I want to know I’m going to be able to see you just as clearly.”

“I will. I promise.” Jewel pressed her thumb into the wrist of her opposite hand to find her pulse fluttering in her veins. “In fact, I’ll go first.” She held out her hand. “I’m wearing this bracelet to make me irresistible to you. To give me confidence. To make me a seductive goddess.”

Easy thought he might melt in his chair. His knees felt like jelly. His bones felt like water. The only thing hard about him was his dick. God, he had a monster boner for this woman. “I’d say it’s working.” Give me your hand. When she did, he slipped the bracelet from her wrist. “As pretty a trinket as this is – you don’t need it.” He raised her hand to his lips. “I am totally, immeasurably enchanted by you. You. Just you.”

Jewel let him remove the bracelet. “Well, there goes my sex appeal.”

Easy threw back his head and laughed. “Let me be the judge of that.” He pointed to her food. “Now, eat. You’re going to need all your strength.”

As they sat in the country diner, a feeling began to grow between them. Connecting them. Insulating them from the rest of the world. There might as well have been no one in the place but them.

“I’m a good cook. I have that going for me.” Jewel pointed to her food. “This is tasty. But I can do better.” She winked at him. “I can make a gumbo that will bring you to your knees.”

“No doubt. No need for the gumbo, however.” He licked his lips, thinking of kissing her between her thighs. “I’ll be glad to demonstrate later.”

Jewel blushed so hard; she raised her hands up to cover her cheeks. “Well, that brings up another point.” She shook her head. “Don’t expect much. My sexual experience is minimal and I don’t think that’s where my talents lie.”

Easy just gave her this knowing, hot look. “I’m looking forward to proving you wrong.” He let out a puff of air, trying to cool his libido. “If we’re confessing things, I might as well tell you that I’ve never known myself to have ambition.”

“What do you mean?” She sensed this was important to him. “You’re so together. So confident.”

Shifting uneasily, he picked up his tea glass and shook the ice around. “Oh, I’ll always have a place, a piece of our family’s ranch. A steady income. I’m just not as vested in the land as my brothers are. I’m the one they send to the sale barn to buy cattle or out into the field to cut the hay. I don’t make the decisions or worry about the outcomes.”

“Don’t you have a dream of your own, Easy?” Seeing an odd look pass over his face, she realized she’d made a mistake. “I’m sorry, it’s none of my business. Who am I to ask something like that? I sell oils and potions with a side of hope.”

“No. No. It’s okay,” he told her. “There is something I’d like to do someday.”

“What’s that?”

“I’d like to buy an old house and fix it up. Do all the work myself.”

“Really?” She smiled. “I love that idea. Would you live in it? Or sell it?”

Easy shrugged his massive shoulders. “I don’t know. Depends on where I am in my life, I guess. If I do decide to live it in, I might buy another one and do the same thing.”

“I’m impressed,” Jewel exclaimed with a smile.

“Don’t be.” Easy looked self-conscious. “I know as dreams go, that’s not much. Most men have an ambition to make a million dollars. To make their mark in the world.”

“Please. Look at me,” she told him, reaching over to touch his wrist, instinctively feeling for the throb of his pulse. “I live in the back of beyond. I own four pairs of shoes. My clothes come from the local department store. I grow my own food. I’m the last person you should try to impress.”

“Well, you do.” Easy was sincere. “Impress me.”

“How?”

Easy gave her a heated look. “Well, beyond your obvious physical attributes, you seem to have the world on a tether. You have superhero powers, like X-ray vision.”

His observation made her feel sad. She remembered what she’d seen in his palm – yet, here she sat with him. Despite the knowledge she possessed, her heart was at his mercy. “I’m certainly not invulnerable, Easy. They’ve burned people like me at the stake for centuries.”

“Yea, and my ancestors were always treated with respect,” Easy drawled sarcastically.

“Oh.” She looked at him with surprise. “Of course, you’re Native American, I forgot.” Jewel blushed when her inane comment made him throw back his head with laughter. “Stop. Let’s forget the trappings of our past and just be us. Jewel and Easy.”

Easy immediately sobered. “I like that. Jewel and Easy. Sounds perfect.”

After finishing their food, Easy paid the check and they made their way out of the restaurant. “How about dessert?” he asked. “Are you in the mood for some ice cream? I think we passed a Baskin-Robbins on the way into town.”

“Sure, that sounds good.” Jewel allowed him to help her in the truck, loving how he straightened her skirt and fastened her seat belt. “In many ways, you’re an old-fashioned gentleman, aren’t you?”

Easy didn’t answer right away. He gave her a smile, closed the door, then joined her in the cab as he climbed behind the wheel. Once they were on the road, he cleared his throat. “My mother raised me to respect women.”

His words fell flat once they were released into the air.

Jewel didn’t know what to say. From what she’d read on his palm, in his mind, and in his heart – he didn’t always treat women with respect.

“Well, let me clarify that point,” Easy began in a low voice, “by saying this…” Since the sun was down, he pushed the visor out of his way. “I’m not proud of the way I’ve lived my life so far. I’ve made some poor decisions. I know that.”

“Easy…you don’t have to…”

“No, if you’re still of a mind to give me a chance, you need to hear this.”

Give him a chance? She shifted in her seat, not sure what was going on. “Okay, I’m listening.”

“My reputation as a playboy, a Lothario, is not unwarranted.”

Jewel bit her cheek to maintain control. She didn’t want to laugh, but a nervous giggle hovered on her lips. He sounded so…contrite. “It’s not?”

“No. I have enjoyed the company of many women. But…” He waited for her to say something, when she didn’t, he continued, “But…I’ve never led anyone on. Every woman knew the kind of man I was before they went out with me.”

“And what kind of man are you, Easy?”

Her simple question hit him like a ton of bricks. “I don’t know. I didn’t mean anyone any harm.” He shook his head as several bad memories surfaced. “I know I hurt a few women who…expected more – thought they’d be the one to change me.” He looked over at Jewel in the darkness, her face fleetingly illuminated by the oncoming lights of a passing car. “But none of how I acted was a reflection of the woman – the mistakes were all about me.”

“I don’t know what that means. All about you.” Jewel was listening intently, her hand pressing into her chest, trying to soothe a curious tender ache.

Easy pressed his lips together. Fuck. He didn’t know what he was trying to say. “Look, this isn’t something we should be discussing on a first date. I’m carrying on like you’re a therapist or something.” Seeing the sign up ahead for the ice cream shop, he put on his blinker. “Let’s just forget all of this and have a good time. Just know I’m here with you because there’s nowhere else in the world I’d rather be.”

“Okay.” She didn’t disagree. Talking about this didn’t make her comfortable either. Both of them knew the score. Both of them knew what they were after tonight. “Let’s just have a good time.”

“Right.” As he pulled into the drive-thru, he gave her a big smile. Relieved. “Just know one thing, treasure. None of what happened with those other women applies to us. All right?”

“Okay.” Jewel didn’t really understand what he was saying, but she decided not to worry about it. She’d chosen to indulge in this night of make-believe with Easy. In spite of his failings, the man had some wonderful qualities and she enjoyed being with him immensely.

“Now, what flavor do you prefer?”

“Chocolate, of course.” She gave him what she thought might be a seductive glance as she licked her lips.

“Uh. Perfect.” He held her eyes for a long moment, then tore himself away to place the order for both of them. In a few moments they were parked under a tree behind the shop, both enjoying a chocolate ice cream cone. “Good?” he asked just before he took a big bite.

“Yummy.” She gave him a smile as she swirled a pattern in the smooth cream with her tongue.

Ensnared by her sensual actions, Easy almost dropped his cone. “Damn.”

The obvious reaction she garnered from him made Jewel feel good. “What’s wrong?” She did it again – just for good measure.

“Not a damn thing.” Easy held her gaze. “Everything feels just right.”

Jewel took their exchange as an affirmation that she was making the right decision. Yes, she enjoyed being with him – and she felt she was going to enjoy their night together even more.

One single night of stolen ecstasy. A night to press between the pages of her memories.

Since they were both going into this with their eyes open, Jewel hoped neither one of them would end up with regrets.

“So, where are we spending the night?” she asked. “Your bed or mine?.”

Author Spotlight: Hell Yeah!: Chasing Butterflies by Jennifer Labelle

chasing-butterflies-cover

Sawyer Maddox hasn’t had an easy life…

She’s the daughter of Kerrville’s biggest drug addicts and she knows what it’s like to be belittled and neglected. She keeps to herself as much as possible and has nobody to count on but her sister, Carley. She’s loved and failed, and with nothing left to lose the two sisters leave the only home they’ve ever known to start fresh someplace new.

They’ve established a good life in Minneapolis for the past eight years. Sawyer finds her passion through her art and tattooing, and her sister finds the love of her life. Her happiness disintegrates when Carley dies in a fire and she’s left utterly alone in the world.

It’s been a long time since she’s been home, but she decides to say goodbye to Minnesota and returns to the Hill Country of Texas. The town is familiar, and she’s determined to bring beauty back to those horrible memories that plague her. She’s not the same woman she once was, and Mad Ink, her very own tattoo shop is how she plans to make those dreams come true. What she doesn’t expect, however, is to run into the dark haired, green eyed, sexy cowboy she left behind.

Jagger Hale is instantly drawn to the brunette beauty sitting at the bar the moment he walks into Hardbodies. She looks eerily similar to the woman he once loved, and the moment he finds out she is indeed the one who got away he has his own agenda in mind—getting Sawyer back. But first he needs to come up with a plan to woo her. Now that he has her in his sights again he doesn’t plan on ever letting her go. All he needs is that second chance…

EXCERPT

“Nice ink you’ve got there.” He gestured towards the half sleeve she had on her right arm and she couldn’t help but smile.

“Thanks, I love my art on the body and off of it.” She closed her eyes and took a deep breath before she opened them again. It had been a long day. “Do you have any?”

“Tattoos?” He lifted his eyebrow and smirked. “One, but I’d have to take off some clothing for anyone to see it.”

Damn it! He’s flirting. “Jagger.” Sawyer said as if she was exasperated with him already, but secretly she was really wondering where on that delicious body of his it was located. Not that she’d ever admit that out loud or anything.

“That’s my name. Speaking of, I never did get yours,” he said just as they’d reached her car.

“Uh huh, now if I gave you that the mystery would be over.” Her keys jangled as she grabbed them from her pocket, but Jagger leaned against the driver side door before she could open it. “And, right now I’m still unsure if you’d like what I had to say. Best to play it safe I think.” She took a step forward hoping he’d take the hint and move out of her way but the stubborn stud wasn’t budging.

“I don’t know any man who doesn’t like a challenge sweetheart and I will figure you out. So consider me intrigued.” He smiled and stood straighter. “Now, how much have you had to drink?”

“What?” she asked totally taken off guard by the question. “I am not drunk.” Hell, it had taken her over an hour to finish her first beer, and she hadn’t even finished her second one.

“Let me be the judge of that.” He held his hand out and wiggled his fingers. “I have a feeling we’ve met before I just can’t seem to place it yet, and if that’s the case you know I’m a decent guy. So I think maybe you should pass me your keys and I’ll make it my duty to get you home safely.”

“Absolutely not!” she said and gripped them tighter.

“You need references darlin’? If so, feel free to march back inside and get as many as you need. I know almost everyone inside including the owner,” he said and waited.

Sawyer was in complete shock. In fact, so much so, her mouth was literally hanging open. Of all the nerve…wow. She fidgeted and then narrowed her eyes at him. “There’s no need. I appreciate your concern but I’m perfectly capable of taking myself home.”

He chuckled in response and then crossed his arms. The smooth tan skin and bulging muscles of his forearms distracted her and she muttered another curse under her breath when she looked back up to his face and he winked. Busted!

“Humor me.” He repeated, “Are you always this pigheaded or is all of it reserved just for me tonight?” He held out his hand again. “Come on just consider this some good old southern hospitality. You get home safely and I feel better about it.”

“Fine, it’s not like I’ve been given any other choice.” She handed him her keys and stomped her feet as she made her way to the passenger side. “Stubborn? Huh!” She huffed. “Takes one to know one.”

“It’s all just part of the package.” He teased. Once they were inside and all buckled up he turned towards her. “Now were to.”

Sawyer gulped as she looked into those hypnotizing green eyes of his and knew that she was royally screwed. Because the moment she gave him the address to her folks place he’d know exactly who she was and that might not be a good thing.

Author Spotlight: Hell Yeah! Cowboy Collision by Kandi Silvers

cowboy-colision-cover

Former reality star, housewife Kendall Swanson, has it all. A luxury high-rise condo in Los Angeles, an expensive convertible and her job is personal assistant to television’s hottest producer. What more could a girl want? Certainly not what her boss asked of her. Go back to her small town, and for his next reality TV sensation, find the ultimate single cowboy to host the ranch “makeovers”. Faster than you can say “stuffed turkey” it’s goodbye palm trees, hello Kerrville, AKA Hell, and yes, it’s frozen over. At least on her parent’s front lawn. How bad could the holidays with her family be? Other than the reindeer in the house and Deacon Cutes being back in town.

Deacon Cutes wasn’t expecting Kendall to blow into town in an over-priced car and designer handbag. He should’ve known she’d be back, he was here for the same reason. The only reason anyone returned to the small town was for weddings, funerals and the occasional holiday. One wedding, one after party and he’d be back on the road singing country songs to star crazed fans—make that after thirty days of community service for a minor infraction.

Wait, did the reindeer just talk? Time to lay off the sauce and not the cranberry kind.

53b41b062dd5056cbd063f91  934cf-add-to-goodreads-button-2

EXCERPT

“Who wants carrot cake?” The church organist offered up happily, having been excluded from the proverbial bomb dropped in the living room.

Fritz reared, his body bumping both Sadie and Kendall. The cake went up and Kendall fell back. Deacon reached out to stop her fall but instead with the momentum both went over. The cake landed as the tree crashed to the floor with a scatter of ornaments and tinsel. Garland landed on Kendall’s face. Her soft curves sandwiched between the fallen Christmas tree and Deacon’s body.

He’d be a liar to say he hadn’t pictured himself on top of her. However, no clothes and no audience had also been part of that erotic image. He removed the garland from her and stared down into her eyes. From where he was laying, it didn’t take a rocket scientist to realize their bodies fit together perfectly. His groin stirred as his chest experienced her breasts coming against him hard with the shallow breaths leaving her lungs.

A flicker of anger crossed her features and she gritted her teeth. “Considering the tree is under me,” she whispered in seething temper. “I highly doubt that is a branch poking into my hip.”

Of all the comments and of all the girls he could have been in the situation with, he couldn’t think of one he’d rather be pressed against. The scent of her became damn near intoxicating and it took every ounce of strength not to kiss her senseless. He leaned in close to her ear and purposely blew warm breath against her skin. “It’s not a branch, baby, but most definitely wood.”

She hissed and struggled to get up slapping him lightly, which induced him to laugh. “I hate you, Deacon!”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR

kandi-silvers-pic

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, I still call Sin City home. I’ve always been a sucker for romance novels and movies, especially romantic comedies. Writing is more than just words to me it’s captivating slices of characters’ lives and sharing them with the reader. I’m a firm believer that heroes and heroines had a life before page one of any story and their past as well as life experiences, made them who they are.

Coming from the southwest I have a major soft spot for cowboys, but also love suspense, a bit of intrigue and kick-ass heroines. Of course, there is always the time to slip in a good paranormal. I try to keep my writing diverse and always on the naughty side.

Happy reading!

The equalizers are on the move, and the stakes have never been higher.
Women are disappearing from Galveston Island’s port, and Gordon McKay faces his first mission as an equalizer: bring down the human trafficking operation and the organization responsible. He expected to find trouble. He just didn’t expect it to be in the form of a take-no-prisoners firebrand like Destiny Miller.
Destiny lost her brother to war two years ago, and now a stranger claiming to be his friend comes waltzing up the steps of her bed and breakfast. He has more secrets than truths, but the eyes never lie. She’s caught in a whirlwind of trouble and somehow Gordon McKay is right at the heart of it.
One kiss was enough to ignite the flames. Another could burn away everything. Should she trust the man or the memory of the brother she thought she knew?

All the King’s Horses

Katherine Rhodes

When the girl on the high horse belongs there, it’s a hell of a job to tame her…

One million-dollar horse.
One family farm.
One Jersey Girl with an attitude.
One recipe for complete disaster.

Well, if anyone had asked RJ Miller, anyway. To make matters worse, he started the whole deal firmly planted on the wrong foot–and Lucy da Silva made sure he knew it.
Visiting the Double Down Ranch outside Austin, Lucy is there with her sister Fatima to purchase a stock of breeding horses for her family back in New Jersey. She knows her horses. She knows her farms. She knows her mind–and she knows she doesn’t like RJ Miller.
Despite the rocky start, RJ finds himself falling for the high-spirited woman. It seems like there’s nothing she can’t do: ride, rope, clean, cook, and dance. Lucy can’t seem to stay away from RJ either, and they find themselves riding more than horses.
If only life were simple: find the girl, fall in love, happily ever after. But with people plotting to get their hands on Double Down’s beautiful thoroughbred, King’s Dominion, Lucy has to admit a truth she hid years ago to save RJ’s sister and her own life…

Cowboy Versus Cupid

Kandi Silvers

When the battle of the sexes stops being fun and games because someone loses their heart!

Ms. Cupid—advice columnist supreme. Women idolize her, and unbeknown to Joselyn Armstrong, men hate her. She works from home and no one other than her best friend, the Editor of Glam Buzz Magazine and her favorite ice cream flavor know her professional identity. So she doesn’t date and her family finds her odd. Josie is perfectly happy helping others find love and staying out of the crossfire, but then came Bentley.
Bentley Cutes often pretends to be his twin brother Ross. Too bad, he doesn’t have a twin, only an older brother and younger sister. He likes his secret life in San Antonio, Texas, doing what he wants and of course the rest of the time—most of the time, has his restaurant and bar, his family and friends in Kerrville. He likes everyone except Ms. Cupid and has a minor vendetta against the faceless columnist who needs to be stopped—and he is just the man for the job. Then Josie walks into his life and he realizes he was wrong. Not only about the lie on his identity, but about Ms. Cupid herself.

Her Hell No Cowboy

Donna Michaels

Keeping it light has never involved more heart.

Ever since his first deployment, Lincoln McCall came home a changed man, swapping life philosophies with his twin brother. No more playing it safe, or by the rules, or looking for “Miss Right”. Hell no. But holding onto that concept is hard when Linc falls into a pool with his arms full of the one that got away.
Coming out of the fog from her husband’s death, Ashely Patterson wants to live a little, have fun…feel alive. So when the sexy cowboy she crushed on in her youth hires her to work on his house, she gives herself permission to enjoy the attraction sizzling between them…after all, she’s only there temporarily, and he doesn’t do relationships.
But when their feelings turn serious, she’s in a heap of trouble. Linc is in the military. So was her husband and that got him killed. She can’t risk her heart to another man who could deploy and never return. Hell no. It was better to leave and take her heart with her.
Now, if only she could figure out how to get the cowboy to give it back.
