"I hope the sidekicks will behave, I wonder if they'll be allowed into the petting zoo," Lyn mutters as they all pile out of the SUV.
"He'd better not," Lyn mutters, "I've given him a good talking to and told him to be on his best behaviour or he'll be grounded for a month."
"Good job you weren't wearing one of your usual low cut tops," La Verne remarks, "we'd have had to hose off your chest area."
"Could have been worse," Debby mutters, "we could have been in with the animals and fallen in a pile of doo-doo." She shrieks as a cheeky black alpaca stretches his head over the fence and nibbles at her bouffant hair. The hostesses dissolve into giggles again, while Debby tuts and pats her hair back into place. "Does it really look like I have a bale of hay on my head?" she pouts "Don't answer that," she orders, as La Verne opens her mouth to speak.
"Oh look," Mary shrieks, as they turn a corner. There leaning over the corral fence facing them,where the ponies are, alongside a beautiful black stallion, stand three very attractive women, three amazingly hunky men - and
Cait. "Just feast your eyes on that man candy."
"Congratulations on these wonderful books," Lilly says, after Cait has introduced them to Trina, Autumn and Cadence, and they try not to drool when meeting Matt, Travis and Bradley. "Let's get this party started and learn more about the Montana Dreams Series!
(today's introductory skit by Hywela Lyn)
Under the stress of being apart, heart-wrenching events leave them plagued with
doubt. Danger forces them to make irrefutable decisions about what they want from life.
“What time do you leave for Aruba tomorrow?”
Desire begged her to grab him and ask questions later.
“At dawn, before the crows caw.”
“Is Milton still getting after you for sleeping in?”
“He did this morning. Dad doesn’t understand today was the last time I could possibly sleep late. Vacationing with my family is non-stop activities from dawn to well past dusk. My brother Bradley and I won’t get a chance to do what we want, like sunbathe or shop. As soon as I return, I don’t even
have time to unpack before I head to Dartmouth.”
His gaze lowered to her mouth.
She stilled. The moment they’d avoided arrived. She wanted to kiss him more than she wanted anything.
Their lips touched. The fire banking low in her belly came alive. She pressed her breasts into his chest, her nipples hardening to pleasured peaks. Their tongues mingled, slow and steady, as they appreciated and savored each other.
“You taste so good.” He drew in a sharp breath and smoothed the hair away from her face.
She shifted to get closer. While she’d arrived pantyless, hoping for intimacy, their kiss caught her by surprise. She didn’t want it to stop. Quite the opposite, she wanted more. She craved to feel his naked body, to feel him buried deep inside, to feel him throbbing when he claimed her. Her body begged, pleaded, and pulsated. “I want you so much it hurts.”
Pressing his forehead to hers, he released a long drawn out sigh. “I want the same.” He whispered, yet his voice cracked. “But…”
She inhaled his intoxicating cologne that set him apart from every other man she’d met. Damn, would he throw water on their heated bodies?
“Is this the wrong thing to do?”
She touched her lips to his neck, sucked in another Matt-fortified-scent. “I don’t know.”
The moon cast shadows over the bridge and him. How will she live without seeing him every day? How will she survive not hearing his voice? How will she deal with not knowing if he’s alive or not?
Right then, the truth to her apprehension came to life. The thing she feared the most. Not wanting to lose their precious relationship wasn’t a lie, yet she held a deeper fear she’d rather keep tucked away. If she made love to Matt, if they closed the last little bit of distance between them, she would lose her soul and never recover. If Matt’s journey ended the same as so many others before him, she didn’t know how she would manage. Military families possessed an amazing strength. Courage she didn’t have.
With the exception of one dear friend who treats her like a daughter, Autumn Wilcox keeps her heart closed off to others. Now this friend struggles with her last breaths and makes a request—for Autumn to find the elusive rainbow that will reveal her destiny. She doesn’t have faith in such tales, but for her friend, she agrees and seeks a pilot to take her to Bluebird Valley, Montana.
After the death of his parents and his brother’s war injury, Travis Carson withdraws and his heart
goes numb. He dives into work until his brother settles in Montana because of Travis’ insistence to carry out their parents’ dream of living in the mountains.
He quits his search and rescue job to purse his vision of opening a scenic tour
business in Montana. So, when friends ask him on his last day of the job to give a woman a ride to the Big Sky Country state, he agrees. Simple, easily done, but the swirl of energy radiating off her has him agreeing and doing things out of his norm. He can no longer push away his feelings to protect his heart. He wants more.
When Cadence breaks Bradley Lovett’s heart, he moves to Florida to live the life of a carefree bachelor and to forget what he once had. This type of life works until he receives an urgent phone call from his kid sister, begging him to help her best friend. Cadence.
Good friends torn apart by circumstance, and just bad luck, find themselves living under the same roof. Now Cadence faces her secret and the man who taught her the true meaning of desire while Bradley hangs onto his heart.
Cait Jarrod author bio:
Someone’s always to blame…
In my case, I bestow the blame for my love of books and writing on my mother, knowing she would love it. A year after she died from cancer, I picked up her favorite pastime as a way to be close to her and found a niche I didn’t know I possessed much less loved.
The stories I made up in my head as a child, never left, and now that my childhood muse has grown
into an adult version, I feel blessed to offer entertainment. Recently, my writing has changed from full-length romantic suspense to romance novellas. My passion has allowed me to become multi-published and to achieve award-winning status, and become an Amazon Best Seller.
My hope: you’ll pick up one of my books, lose yourself in the story, laugh, possibly cry—a good one—and smile.
