Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly series where I tantalise you with snippets from upcoming and past book releases, and works-in-progress.
This week we’re going to take a look at Heartland, a book that features a girl determined to get out of Dodge as fast as she can, and the super sexy hero who wants her to stay. There’s also mad goose, a cranky but big-hearted old farmer, a warty horse, a frightened teen and a real estate agent who may be good or bad. But you’ll have to read it to find out the answer to that.
I had a lot of fun with this story, especially with the sex scenes. My rural romances tend to keep the door closed on couples in bed, but these two seemed to want to do it everywhere, and often!
Heartland is available now in ebook and paperback from your favourite retailer. Try Booktopia, Amazon, Kobo, iTunes or Google Play. You can also discover how I came to write this story on Heartland’s The Story Behind page.
Now for some flirty banter between Matt and Callie…
‘This place used to seem like heaven when I was a kid. I was always so excited to come here.’ She shook her head, expression slightly puzzled. ‘I can’t see it now. It just looks like a normal farm.’
‘I imagine it was the horses.’
‘Yeah. I always was a sucker for anything that neighed.’
Callie looked up at him from under lowered lashes. ‘Now I’m a sucker for different things.’
He took a step closer and reached up to wrap both hands around an overhanging branch, gratified when her gaze skittered over his flexed biceps and chest. ‘Callie Reynolds, are you flirting with me?’
‘What makes you think that?’
She shook her head. ‘What is it about you Graneys? You all seem to have egos the size of elephants.’
‘So what was that look for then?’
‘That look, which you so badly misinterpreted, was merely that of a woman in need.’
‘A woman in need?’
Humour lit her blue eyes but her voice feigned seriousness. ‘A woman in deep need.’
Matt pursed his lips, nodding. ‘This deep need of yours, would it happen to have something to do with Glenmore?’
He flipped through what help she could require and thought he knew. ‘The tractor won’t start.’
‘Attractive and a mind-reader.’
‘I’m a woman in need. Right now any capable man is attractive.’
