Lumber Jacks and Hearts Ablaze

I was watching the movie The Reverent and I was blown away by the scenery of the Pacific North West. It's a historical movie and I just knew I needed to write a book in the majestic wooded mountains. My book Whispered Love is set in a lumber camp deep in the tall pines. My hero is a Lumber Jack aka Logger, Timber Beast or Sawdust Savage. Old time logging was known as muscle-powered logging. The most important person in the camp is the cook. Work was hard, long and the wages were slim. Unemployment was unsteady so the only perk of the job was the food.

Coming October 18th! Eight best-selling authors bring you eight sizzling tales from the Old West! There is something for everyone in this collections to fire up those chilly Autumn nights!  So without further commentary let me introduce you to the authors and the stories. 

Also, just to get the fire started, leave a comment for a chance to win an ARC Kindle copy of HEARTS ABLAZE! 

Hold onto the reins and let's go!

 In Whispered Love, bestselling author Kathleen Ball takes you to the wild Pacific Northwest, a land bristling with handsome, well-muscled lumberjacks. Foreman Samuel Pearse has only one rule; no women allowed. Until he finds one asleep in his bathtub—Pat Clarke, the company cook. With her secret revealed and her virtue at stake, Pat turns to the only man who can help her…the one man who can set fire to her heart.

 About Cowboy Seasons

Summer's Desire 

When 26-year-old cowboy Holden O'Leary uprooted his brothers from Texas to Montana, the new vet advertised for a nanny. No woman alive would deny the Doc was as handsome a specimen as the sleek, hard-bodies horses he rescued. And that included Summer Fitzgerald, the voluptuous, honey-haired young woman who applied for the job, and was stunned to find her three charges ranged from 12 to 18 - charming, immature, irresponsible, and capable of winning a piece of her shattered heart. 
With his stubble, his six-pack and his tousled hair, she thought Holden was sexy as hell. But she'd sworn off men after being implicated by her former boyfriend in a hideous murder that had badly wounded her - and her reputation. He had sworn off women because his lousy judgment had endangered his family. The fact was: he found Summer totally irresistible, and more vulnerable than vicious -- despite the warnings: "She's real good with that innocent act, but don't let her fool you.... She'll end up behind bars soon enough. ".... 
Would the past catch up with both of them? Who killed the bar owner - and why? What was the real reason Holden had moved? How would the Doc and the nanny deal with their passionate attraction, crippling rumors of savage scandals, and shocking, long buried secrets? Will brother be pitted against brother? When does true love exact a price too great to pay? And - when is a life-threatening risk worth taking? 
Saddle up for one of today's most tempestuous romances - laced with a dazzling double mystery, and surrounded by more hunky cowboys than you can wave a lasso at.... 

Autumn's Hope 

Pregnant and alone, Autumn Lavin moves to the small town of Carlston, Montana intending to open a vegetarian restaurant, determined that she doesn’t need a man in her life. 
Hunky, Cattleman, Jonas Barnes is instantly at odds with Autumn, he has a much needed contract to supply the restaurant with beef. Jonas is an injured Army Veteran with too many scars, inside and out, to ever truly open his heart. 
Autumn’s love wraps around him but he is afraid that once she sees how damaged he really is she’ll turn away. 

Winter's Embrace 

Ten years ago Winter’s heart was broken beyond repair by Stone McCoy. Now she is a travel agent ready to lead an Alaskan Cruise and to her surprise Stone McCoy is on her tour. A long ago phone call shattered her trust and her self-confidence. She never planned to see Stone again. 
While at college, Stone McCoy woke up, after a fraternity party, to find a girl in his bed. Weeks later she told him she’s pregnant. Calling Winter to break things off was the worst night of his life. Now he’s hoping for a second chance at happiness. 
The chemistry is electrifying but old issues lead these two on a merry chase. Can they put old hurts aside and begin again? Join Rancher Stone McCoy and Winter James as they try to find happiness from Alaska to Texas and finally on his Montana Ranch. 

Spring's Delight 

The last thing cowboy Colt O'Malley needs is another busybody intent on curing him of his grief. Deeply bitter, Colt finds it almost impossible honoring his brother's last act of kindness. 
Spring Reed grew up in the foster care system and when she finally ages out, she relies on her protector and friend, Billy Jack to help them make a life together. To her horror, Billy becomes an abusive bully. Her rescuer arrives in the form of a coffee drinking, hard studying, college student, Caleb O'Malley. With a promise of a new job, he buys her a bus ticket from Texas to his family ranch in Montana with the plan to meet her there in a week. Unfortunately, no one met her. 
When Old Ed tries to drop Spring off at the O'Malley ranch, Colt tells him to take her back. One glance at the pain in her eyes and he couldn't send her away. She reminds him of the abused horses he rescues. 
Can two people with scarred souls learn to love again or will bitterness and doubt drive them apart?

From Pink Pucks & Power Plays - To Love a Wildcat #1

I left the flakes on the floor to answer my door. Vacuuming up fish flakes would have been much more settling for my nerves. Alain Lessard stood on my welcome mat looking like a million and half bucks. The man was working the casual chic look for all it was worth. His jacket was black and clearly YSL. He had tossed the sharp, black jacket over a crisp, white, button-down shirt. The sleeves and neck were unbuttoned. He wore black khakis, softly buffed black, leather boots, and a flash of a gold watch on his left wrist. His hair was damp, his cheeks freshly shaved, and his smile dazzling.

“I am not too late, am I?” he asked when I stood in the doorway like a buffoon. I gently shook my head and moved aside. “Bon!” He hesitated as if unsure until I waved him in. Perhaps my lack of speech was throwing him off. My brain came up with something and then he passed by me, close enough to scrub his arm across my left breast. My nipple stiffened instantly. His cologne was alluring and dark. I inhaled the manly aroma deeply. I adore a man who knows what kind of scent to wear and how much. Closing the door gently, I gathered my scattered wits, blew away the thick mist of desire with a long exhalation through pursed lips then spun around to face my date. He was standing in the middle of my living room, smiling widely as he peered into my kitchen.

“If you’re looking for dinner, I’m afraid you’ll be disappointed. Someone told me we were going out tonight?” I walked to the sofa to pick up the black shawl I had chosen.

“I have never seen such a purple kitchen. It is very you, Viviana,” Alain said, coming over to lift the dainty bit of shimmering material from my fingers. I turned. He draped, making sure that the back of his fingers skimmed both sides of my neck. Something hot began to uncurl like a cat waking from a nap deep within me. “And yes,” he whispered beside my ear, “We have reservations that we will miss if I do not step away from you and stop admiring your lovely perfume. It is some sort of tropical flower, yes?”

“Yes,” I responded as his warm breath tickled my ear. “It’s called Plumeria Blossom and it’s imported from Hawaii.”

“It’s very pretty. Have you ever been to Hawaii?” he asked, stepping away from me, sadly. His warmth back there was rather nice. 



V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, a flock of assorted domestic fowl, and two Jersey steers. When not writing spicy romances, she enjoys spending her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in hand.

New Release Kindle Unlimited Shane's Bride by Kathleen Ball #ASMSG #IARTG

Announcing the Release of 
Shane's Bride
Mail Order Brides of Texas
By Kathleen Ball
Rescued from Indians, Cecily McGuinness suffers from horrendous nightmare; ones that have her running from her lodging into the woods. She’ll never be normal again and most of the townspeople look at her with disdain. All she ever wanted was a family and a place to call home. 

Sheriff Shane O'Connor is tired of tracking Cecily down each time she takes flight. Finally he makes her an offer to keep his house and help turn it into a farm. Her past doesn’t taint her in his eyes. In fact he finds himself very attracted to her but keeps his distance. She’d suffered enough at the hands of Long Nose. 

Amid cheating gamblers, old friends who unexpectedly show up and a fire, a closeness develops between them. Cecily believes she isn’t fit to be a wife anymore. Can Shane convince her heart and soul that she is indeed worthy of a great love? 


He slowly walked to her, concern etched on his face. “I scared you, didn’t I? I’m sorry,” he said in a soft voice. Reaching out he cupped her shoulders in his big hands. “I want you to feel safe here. You were lost in thought.” He cocked his brow and slightly tilted his head as though waiting for an answer.

“I suppose I was.” She took a big step back, escaping his hands. His hands didn’t scare her as much as her reaction to them. A warm tingling feeling coursed through her body. Her heart continued to beat fast, but now it wasn’t out of fear.

99¢ SALE! Griff Montgomery, Quarterback (First & Ten series, Book 1) A Thrilling Football Romance by Jean Joachim #ASMSG #Bookboost

Griff Montgomery, Quarterback 

(First & Ten series, Book 1)

99¢ For a Limited Time Only

 Two people, two tragedies, two deep, devastating secrets…. Griff Montgomery is the headline-making, heart-breaking star quarterback of the Kings – a 6’4”, 33 year old womanizer. Lauren Farraday is a beautiful young interior designer, bitterly scarred by divorce, whose life is falling apart. Though they violently oppose one another in court over her beloved pug (she thinks he’s arrogant and conceited, and he thinks she’s a bitch on wheels), something happens....

These are the bare bones of this sizzling romance, riddled with passion -- the first in a brand new series that’ll tantalize football fans and have readers glued to every page and on the edge of their seats!

Griff looks like a super hero with his tousled, mahogany hair, dazzling smile, dark, sexy eyes, and a body that does something indescribable to a tight pair of jeans. Though Lauren’s sworn off men forever, one look sends shivers down her spine, making her feel lonelier than ever before. Her lustrous, long hair, sparkling green eyes, and nonstop curves make his fingers tingle at the thought of touching her. How do they deal with their cataclysmic attraction? Will they be able to drop their protective facades – his to camouflage his grief over his sister and her family, for whom he was a surrogate father, moving 3000 miles away…. And hers’ to shield her from the incalculable loss of her husband and hoped for child?

For Griff, the thought of falling in love is as foreign as toe shoes and a tutu. For Lauren, it’s like putting on cleats and a helmet and running 50 yards…. Can they, will they, risk it? Get GRIFF – and find out!
CAUTION: Book contains locker room language.



What people are saying about Griff Montgomery, Quarterback, 2nd place winner in the DNSB Reader's Choice Awards for Favorite Sports Book Boyfriend!

“If you like football, sexy quarterbacks, interior design, yummy food, cute pugs and hot sex this is the book for you. And its just the start... there is more sexy football hotness to come!” “C”
“You've gotta love a story where the hero and heroine are brought together by a lovable pug! That's what happens in Griff Montgomery, Quarterback, by Jean C. Joachim. I enjoyed the way Jean includes so many details about Griff's life as a pro football player - working out with his teammates, dealing with life on the road, concern over the new guy taking his place…This is the first sports-related romance I've read and it won't be the last.” S.N.
“Jean’s characters were well written and Zander AKA Spike was my favorite. I like how this book wasn't all about Griff Montgomery the quarterback. There was a story behind each of the characters which allowed me as the reader to connect to each of them…” “S”
“I was a bit apprehensive at first because I didn't know if I wanted to read a "Football" romance story, but it was GREAT! Or should I say "Touchdown"…” T.V.
“Can't wait to read the next book in the series. This is a true romance and great story…” R.P.
“Good start to a new series. This book was well written and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.” “A”

Grant me the Moon by Caroline Clemmons featured in Come Love A Cowboy Boxed Set 99cents #ASMSG #CLAC




All Tory Fraser intended was to show her high school history club students a local archeology dig. How could she know the excursion would involve a murder? Or that one of her students would be suspected as the killer? And she had no idea she would meet the man of her dreams.

Grant Grayson has taken over management of Grayson Ranch near Post, Texas to give his grandfather a less arduous schedule. A flash flood washed away an old talus slope on the ranch to reveal a prehistoric cave that is a Clovis site. Being a good citizen, he invited the nearest large university archaeology department to excavate the cave. When a gorgeous blonde high school teacher asks his permission to take her students to the site, how can he deny her? Especially when he is instantly attracted to her as he’s never been to anyone.

Tory and Grant are drawn in to the investigation to clear her student but unintentionally make themselves a target. Now they must evade the killer to celebrate their new found love.
