Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, where I share snippets from new and past releases and works-in-progress and occasionally con author buddies into doing the same.
A much quieter week in the Hein house, although some golf was played. Bad golf. I even had an airy (air swing, no ball touched). So embarrassing. But let’s not talk about that. It makes me feel sooky.
Let’s talk briefly about Scarlett and the Model Man. Things are moving steadily along with this next instalment in the Levenham Love Story series. I’m well past the half-way point and just seeing the first few glimmers of light that signal ‘The End’. The end of the first draft, that is. Even when that’s reached and celebrated, there’s still a lot to do.
I had thoughts of sharing a teensy snippet from Scarlett and the Model Man but have decided to wait a bit longer. Don’t worry, you’ll get plenty of snippets later, I promise. Instead, I’m going to share an except from The Country Girl, the Kindle version of which is on sale right now in Amazon’s Australian store for only $1-99. So cheap!
Now, I know many of you have read this book already (thank you, darling people) but if you haven’t or have been umming and ahhing over whether to give it a whirl, then here’s your chance to pick it at a bargain price.
There aren’t many things you can get for $1-99 that will give you hours of laughs, smiles and mushy sighs as Tash and Patrick work their way to love and Pa delivers his old farmer’s wisdom. The Country Girl will.
This offer runs out in November. Don’t miss out. Grab your Kindle copy today.
Here’s a taste to help convince you that you need this book. In this scene, Patrick has called in on Tash, thinking he can boss her around. Silly, misguided man!
‘Are you planning on opening a restaurant or something?’
She slid out a plate holding half a dozen small pies. ‘It’s a by-product of having a cooking show.’ Without asking, she folded the pies into piece of lunch wrap and added them to the container. Screwing her nose up, Tash contemplated the fridge door then opened it and rummaged once more inside.
‘I think that’s enough,’ said Patrick, amused.
She held up a clear plastic box. ‘Chocolate-coated honeycomb. Your dad will enjoy that.’
‘I have to get rid of it somewhere.’ She added the container to the pile. ‘It was easy in Melbourne. I had people practically queuing up for stuff. Here …’ She shook her head. ‘No one needs food. They’re all well fed already.’
Which brought Patrick thumping back to earth and the reason he was at Castlereagh in the first place.
‘Finished?’ he asked.
‘Good. Because you and I have things to discuss. You’re not to ride Khan.’
Immediately Tash’s arms folded across her chest. Patrick tried not to notice how the movement pushed her breasts up. He needed to get a grip. This was Tash and, more importantly, she had Khan and, worse, had been riding him. Without a frigging helmet. Just because Patrick hadn’t had sex in … His face compressed into a scowl. What did it matter how long? Sex wasn’t everything.
He missed it though. A lot.
The thought resurrected his temper. ‘Don’t look at me like that. You know what that animal is capable of and, let’s face it, you were never in the same league as Maddy when it came to riding, and look what happened to her.’
‘Maddy was galloping helmetless over makeshift jumps in thick scrub when Khan fell. All I plan on doing is pottering around Castlereagh. They are hardly the same circumstances. Besides,’ she said, her chin lifting, ‘you can’t stop me.’
‘I can and I will.’
Unafraid, she came to stand in front of him and looked up. The top of Tash’s head just reached the line of his shoulders and gave him a bird’s-eye view of her cleavage, along with the urge to bury his face between those soft, swollen mounds. An urge that only heightened his anger.
Tash’s smirk was as provocative as her voice. ‘I’d like to see you try.’
