Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesday MemeWelcome to Teaser Tuesday where I share snippets from new and past releases and works-in-progress, and sometimes twist the arms of author buddies to do the same.

It’s a big week in the Hein house. I’m on the road for Fictionally Yours, Melbourne, a ginormous book signing event being held at Crown Casino this coming weekend. I can’t wait! It’s always such a thrill to meet and chat with readers, especially at these kinds of events. Everyone is so happy and excited, and who doesn’t love talking about books?

VIP tickets for both Saturday and Sunday have sold out, as has the After Party, but you can still score weekend passes. Grab them here before they run out too: https://www.eventbee.com/v/fym2019#/tickets

Signings are split across the two days of the event. I’m signing on Sunday 7th. Hope to see you there!

Righty-o, I have lots of preparation still to do so today’s Teaser Tuesday is going to be short and sweet.

This snippet is from The Horseman’s Promise (first published as Promises). It’s part of a scene where our racehorse trainer hero Aaron again shows his innate kindness, something that only helps to makes Sophie’s growing crush on him worsen but is also the last thing he wants. They might be neighbours but their fraught family histories have made them off-limits to each other. Can’t stop love though!

‘You can take that brown filly in the second yard, Casalinga. She’ll give you a nice ride. She’s one of Tony Johnstone’s,’ he said, he Horsemans Promise by Cathryn Heinreferring to his main owner, ‘and she’s a little cracker, too. That’s who Costa Motza will be up against if you decide to run him over two thousand metres.’

Sophie looked at the filly. She was gorgeous, but still under developed. ‘You’re having me on. That weedy little thing doesn’t stand a chance against my boy.’ She turned back to Aaron. ‘Who are you taking?’

‘Psycho.’

‘But I can ride Psycho.’

Aaron shook his head. ‘Nah, you look knackered enough. And you’ve another one-day event on Sunday.’

Under Sophie’s thick jumper, goosebumps crept up her back in delicious tingles. ‘You remembered.’

Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesday MemeWelcome to Teaser Tuesday where I share snippets from new and past releases and works-in-progress, and occasionally nag author buddies into doing the same.

It’s been a bit quiet in the Hein house this past week. Lots of rain will do that but the dullness made it great reading and baking weather. I made muffins and scones for the freezer, and also tried out this Portuguese custard tart recipe from the AWW Food magazine. It was delicious! Dead easy too, which is always a bonus, so no excuses not to give it a go.

I wish writing was as easy. It’s funny how some books just pour out onto the page while others require painful extraction. Eddie and the Show Queen is one of the latter, bless its wordy socks. I adore this story and the characters but right now the buggers aren’t co-operating. Not to worry. We’re getting there. I know I’ve been saying this for a while, but I really do hope to have news on a release date soon, and I cannot wait to share the cover. It’s a beauty!

Which leads me to this week’s teaser. Time for a few lines from The Horseman’s Promise (first published under the title Promises). Gird yourselves. Aaron and Sophie are about to get sexy.

 

he Horsemans Promise by Cathryn HeinShe pressed her mouth against his ear and he felt her smile against his cheek. Electricity jolted down his spine.

‘Kiss me.’ Her voice sounded husky, full of need, like him.

She pressed against him, and he groaned at the pressure on his erection. He cupped her face, studying those wonderful grey eyes, searching for reservations. There were none. Only pure desire for him.

‘Sophie.’ It was all he could say. Just her name. Just her beautiful, perfect name.

 

He he. I bet that made you sit up!

Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesday 2017 logoWelcome to Teaser Tuesday, the blog series where I share snippets from new and past releases, and works-in-progress, and occasionally invite author buddies to do the same.

It’s August 1st and that means two wonderful things. One, it’s only 21 days until Chrissy and the Burroughs Boy releases. Rah! Have you pre-ordered your copy? If not, secure one today by visiting amazon.com, amazon.com.au, amazon.co.uk, iBooks, Kobo, Barnes and Noble or Google Play. If you’re waiting on the print version, signed copies will be available to purchase direct from me after August 22nd (details in the release day newsletter – sign up here), or available to order from online book stores soon.

The second wonderful thing is that it’s the official birthday of the horse, at least in the southern hemisphere. If you’re out and about and spot a one of these lovely creatures, give it a pat or a carrot or blow it a kiss.

I’m going to celebrate by sharing a snippet from The Horseman’s Promise (formerly known as Promises). I love this book and am delighted that the rereleased edition is finding new readers in Australia and around the world. From the moment I started writing this book I knew it had something different, and I was right because it went on to become my first published novel.

Sophie and Aaron’s story is loaded with family drama, intense emotions and romance. But with Sophie riding event horses and Aaron being a racehorse trainer, it also has horses. Lots of them. Which is why it’s being featured on today’s Teaser Tuesday.

Here’s a snippet from Aaron’s point of view. He’s trying his hardest to not let it happen, but Sophie is getting under his skin…

 

It wasn’t only him Sophie was spoiling. Every day, the horses were favoured with a treat. Sometimes it was a bucket of carrots she’d share out before leaving for home. Other mornings she brought he Horsemans Promise by Cathryn Heinapples. The week before, Aaron had caught her feeding the horses peppermints.

The horses’ reactions to this unusual treat had her laughing so hard she’d had to grab at a rail to hold herself upright. Psycho kept raising his head in the air and curling his top lip like a randy ram that had just sniffed a ewe. Costa Mozta was leaning so far over the top rail of his yard, his rubbery lips extended and wiggling like an elephant’s nose as he tried to reach for the packet, that he was in danger of falling over. Rowdy had cocked his head to either side like a connoisseur thinking up superlatives to describe the taste, before flopping out his tongue and waggling it as if it needed airing.

Aaron had shaken his head and walked away grumbling about rotten teeth and dentist bills, but the sight of her laughing so joyously made his heart feel too big for his chest.

 

The Horseman’s Promise is available right now in ebook and print from amazon.com, amazon.com.au, amazon.co.uk, iBooks, Kobo, Google Play, Barnes and Noble, Bookdepository, Booktopia, and Angus and Robertson Bookworld. Grab your copy today and be charmed!
