WOW! I’ve been spinning around in circles. I cleaned house this morning – remember, last week I was worrying about it. I also packed up my swag to send to Wyoming AND I finished the GUIDE TO THE HELL YEAH! World. Let me tell you a little bit about this insider’s collector book. It has everything you need to know about the original hell yeah – all 22 books! Covers, blurbs, list of characters, a playlist, insider notes from the author, even blogs that were written while I was penning the book. There is also a generous excerpt for each book plus a heads up about what characters are getting a book for themselves. There’s also a section about the new HELL YEAH! Kindle World books and – I’m excited about this – a novella that is new and available NOWHERE ELSE. The name of this short book is A McCoy’s Favorite Sport and follows Aron and Libby & Heath and Cato on a trip together – a trip that is a comedy of errors but also includes some hot McCoy sex – of course! 
Let me show you the cover.

Now, let me show you something else – this book will soon go up on preorder – 

Here’s a taste –

“You’re right.” He gave her a sensual look. “I feel very blessed right now.” They rode deeper into Falconhead land where the trees were thicker – ancient live oaks and massive pecans whose branches hung low enough to be used as benches or places where small children could climb up and lay down for a nap, warmed by the dappled sunshine. “Look.”

Ryder let her gaze follow his pointing hand and what she saw made her gasp with wonder. Ahead lay a small clearing lit by thousands of tiny white lights that had been strung in the trees. A table and chairs sat in the middle adorned with flowers, a white table cloth and candles. “How beautiful,” Ryder breathed. The closer they came, the more she could see, the table was set with china and dishes covered with silver domes awaited them. All of it looked like a fantasy scene that had jumped right off the pages of a magazine…especially the dark, handsome man who stood there waiting for them.

“Gideon.”

“Yes, Gideon is waiting for us.”

Everything Ryder thought she knew and understood about what was going on between her and Samson flew out the window. Wasn’t this a date? What was his brother doing here?

“I…don’t understand,” Ryder muttered as Gideon stepped forward to meet them, coming to Ryder with a smile on his face. His dark hair tousled in an I don’t give a shit fashion that he wore so well.

“Hello, Ryder. It’s so good to see you. I’m glad you could join us.”

Ryder looked at Gideon, then back at Samson. “Hello.” Her mind and heart were in turmoil. She shivered with excitement, but that excitement was accompanied by a sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach. Truth slipped from her lips before she could call it back. “I wasn’t expecting to see you here.”

Instead of seeming disturbed, Gideon gave her a heated look, reaching up to lift her from the mare’s back. “You didn’t tell her I’d be joining you, Samson?”

Ryder allowed his hands on her body. Truth be told, she enjoyed his touch. Confused, she looked from one brother to the other. “What’s going on?” She couldn’t fathom their motives. Was this some kind of joke? Were they having fun at her expense? Despite the holdings and wealth her family had accumulated, she wasn’t sophisticated – she was just Ryder. “Are you two making fun of me?”

Samson dismounted and came to stand near to Ryder. She was surrounded by two men who overwhelmed her senses. Each in their own way – one light, one dark – each possessed enough raw male beauty to take her breath away.

His smile had faded and his expression was completely sincere. “We would never make fun of you. You, Ryder McCoy, have captured our complete attention in no way any other woman has in a long, long time.”

 “He’s right,” Gideon whispered. “You’ve taken over our dreams, overwhelmed our senses. I’ve been able to think of nothing else.”

“I don’t understand.” Ryder shivered as she felt Samson run his hand beneath her hair, caressing her neck. He wasn’t the only one touching her, however. His brother ran a finger down her arm from elbow to wrist, causing frisson of excitement to rise along the path. “I thought Samson and I were here on a date. And now…” She closed her eyes and swallowed nervously. “Am I supposed to choose?”

Samson chuckled. “No, sweetheart. This isn’t some kind of weird competition between us.”

“No, Ryder, no competition.” Gideon took the same finger he used to caress her arm and lifted her chin so he could look into her eyes. “We share.”

Ryder heard his voice, but she couldn’t process the meaning of his words. “Share?”

“Surrender to us, Ryder,” Samson whispered, his lips branding the sensitive skin of her neck. “We’ll give you more pleasure than you ever knew possible.”

“Just a chance, Ryder,” Gideon murmured as he kissed her palm. “You’ll be the center of our attention, the focus of our passion. There’s nothing we wouldn’t do for you.”

In a haze of confused excitement, Ryder trembled at their touch. “Both of you want me?”

“More than you’ll ever know,” Gideon pressed her small hand between both of his, engulfing it in secure warmth.

Fantasies warred with expectations. Ryder’s heart raced as a wild, raging desire rose within her, trying to override all she believed, all she’d ever held to be true. “I can’t.”

“Oh, yes, you can.” Samson moved in front of her, taking her face in his hands, capturing her mouth with his. Giving her one long kiss after another, only pausing so they could take a breath.

“Don’t kiss me, please.” Her voice didn’t sound convincing as she blindly sought Samson’s mouth again with her own.

“We have to,” Gideon teased in her ear, “look at all the mistletoe.”

“What mistletoe? It isn’t Christmas,” she whimpered, her body on fire, her nipples as hard as river washed pebbles.

“Look up, beautiful, it’s all around us.” Samson pressed his lips to the upper swell of her breast.

In an erotic daze, Ryder lifted her head and saw the hundreds of green clumps hanging from the branches of the oaks like lush decoration. Her action exposed the creamy expanse of her neck and Gideon took advantage, blanketing her from behind. As she gave herself over to Samson Duke’s hunger, his brother’s lips blazed a hot trail across the tender flesh of her shoulder. “You won’t be sorry. We’ll worship your body, fulfil your every fantasy.”

As surely as she could feel their excitement, their hard aroused bodies pressing against her front and back, Ryder could feel her resolve slipping. She wasn’t afraid of these two men, they’d never hurt her, they’d proven that. She was afraid of herself, afraid of what she wanted – of what she couldn’t have.

“No!” Pulling away, she broke apart from them. They didn’t try to stop her, they only stood watching as she backed away, an unspeakable sadness on their faces. “I have to go. I shouldn’t be here. This is wrong. I’m not the type of woman you need.”

“You’re all we need,” Samson beseeched her, holding out his hand. “Let us show you how good it can be.”

“Give us a chance, Ryder.” Gideon stared at her with a hooded intense gaze.

“I wish I…” With a choked sob, Ryder turned and ran from the grove of oak trees, catching the horse’s bridle. Through a haze of tears, she mounted and rode back to the Highlands as if the devil himself were on her heels.

She saw nothing she passed – not Jaxson leading a breed bull by a bridle, not Tennessee driving a huge tractor from the hayfield – Ryder was intent only on reaching the house and the sanctuary of her room.

Entering the barn, she gave an apologetic glance at one of the ranch hands. “Would you make sure this horse is tended and returned to Falconhead, Hanse. I don’t feel well.”

“Of course, Miss Ryder.”

Without looking back, Ryder ran across the yard, barely glancing at the rose garden she and her sister lovingly tended in their mother’s memory. She only hoped Pepper wasn’t home. At the moment what she needed most was to be alone with her thoughts.

Flinging open the door to her suite, she flung herself on the bed and let the tide of despair wash over her. 

Ryder felt like her heart was being torn in two. How could they do this to her? She didn’t know what to think. “I can’t choose. Don’t make me choose.”

The tormented whisper echoed in the empty room, and even as she said the words, she didn’t really know what they meant.

Was she talking about choosing between Samson and Gideon?

Her feelings for both men were so far beyond anything she’d ever felt or imagined feeling for a man that denying them was impossible.

Or was she talking about choosing between what she wanted more than air…and her family?

There was no question…a decision like she was tempted beyond measure to make would crumble the very foundation of the McCoy clan. Her brothers would never understand and the impact on her father could be deadly.

“I don’t know what to do.” Ryder sobbed into her pillow, realizing her happiness might come with a price tag higher than she was willing to pay.

And remember – this one is up on preorder now!

This is going to be an emotional, sensual read, this excerpt isn’t sexy – but it touches my heart.

EXCERPT

Oak Hill Plantation - 1816

“I don’t understand.” Jolie held her bare arm next to Charlotte’s. They lay on the floor of the attic basking in a bright beam of sunlight. “My skin isn’t any darker than yours.”

They compared their little arms. They did look the same, small, still baby round. The only difference they could see was that Charlotte had a smattering of reddish freckles where Jolie had only one or two darker freckles. “Mama called them beauty spots, Grandmere called them moles.” She wrinkled her nose and let her finger trace over her skin. “I’m not sure why, moles are those blind little creatures that live in the dirt.

“Yea, I don’t understand either. You look okay to me. I’m not sure why mother says you’re different but you are, I guess.” She raised up on her elbows. “Do you feel different?”

Jolie rolled to her back. “No, I feel like me. Abraham was darker, his skin looked like the fine obsidian stone that Grandmere used to wear for protection. She said it came from a volcano that stood right behind her home on Martinique. But when we would catch our skin on bramble bushes, the color of our blood was exactly the same.” She rolled over to gaze at Charlotte. “What does that mean? How can we be different if we’re all the same on the inside?”

Charlotte sighed. “I don’t know, Jolie. I don’t understand a lot of things. Like ciphering. I hate numbers. And I don’t want to learn how to speak French.” A sudden smile lit up her face. “Was your grandmother a witch?”

“No!” Jolie made a face. “She had a broom, but she didn’t ride it. She just swept with it and would wallop me on the behind with it when I acted ugly.”

Charlotte giggled. “I wish you could come to Sophia’s birthday party with me.” She captured her cousin’s hand in her own.

“Me too.” Jolie stared at the ceiling. “Grandmother Dora says I’m a shame and a disgrace. I’ve tried to be better. I stand up straight and I don’t talk back. I haven’t played in the dirt all week.”

Charlotte sat up, placing her hands on her knees. “When we grow up, Jolie. We’ll go to parties all the time. We’ll have them right here at Oak Hill.” She spread her arms wide. “Grand parties and we’ll wear beautiful clothes and fine gentleman will come to call on us.”

Jolie giggled. “Do you think we’ll ever get married?”

“Oh, yes.” Charlotte put her hand under her chin and batted her eyes.

“My mama and papa weren’t married. He loved her, though.” Jolie was certain of this. Although, the thought did bother her.

“Charlotte! Charlotte! Come downstairs this instant. It’s time for you to get dressed!”

Charlotte and Jolie stood, dusting off their dresses. They could hear Lisette ascending the narrow staircase. “Jolie, are you up here?”

“Yes, ma’am.”

“I want you to get downstairs and stay in the kitchen. Help Cook get ready for dinner and don’t come into the parlor under any circumstance. Do you hear me?” By the time she finished her speech, Lisette was standing on the top step looking Jolie hard in the eye. “Charlotte, did you finish your lessons?”

“Yes, ma’am. Mr. Cryer said I did a fine job. Why doesn’t Jolie have to take lessons?”

“Jolie doesn’t get to take lessons. Why would we waste the money?”

Jolie bowed her head. She didn’t like to be the topic of conversation. “I don’t mind. I’ve already completed the level that Charlotte is working on.”

This bit of information didn’t seem to make Lisette happy. “You have no need for an education!”

Jolie didn’t argue, she didn’t know if she did or not. All she knew was that she missed her family. Her real family. The relatives she lived with now didn’t make her feel welcome. As she made her way slowly down the stairs, keeping out of Aunt Lisette’s way, Jolie wondered if she’d ever feel like she belonged anywhere again.

Well, I’m haunted. I knew I was in the past, but that was in the old house back home. In this modern structure I’m living in, I really hadn’t thought much about paranormal happenings – as much as I like them.

But last night…

Last night, I was working away, it was about midnight or a little after and I was writing on RYDER’S SURRENDER (which is about to go up for preorder) and I’d turned off the TV because I usually like to leave in on CNN or HGTV while I write, just for noise. But since it was Saturday night, there wasn’t even news to watch! I was lying there in the dark, working, when - - all of a sudden…the TV comes back on! It hadn’t been sleeping, it actually came back up with the ATT U-Verse Life is Good logo. While I was staring at it, a question came on, “Are you still watching netflix?” I answered out loud. “No!” Then, I shut the TV back off and laid there a few minutes, feeling spooked. Finally, I turned the TV back on, so I wouldn’t lay there and worrying about it coming on by itself. What a night!

Considering the events of last evening, one would think I was nuts if I tell you that I went to the movies this afternoon to see LIGHTS OUT – a scary movie! But it was good, right down my alley. I enjoyed it and even got a tidbit of inspiration for a book. The boyfriend in the movie is one that I would jerk right out of the pages, he wanted her to say he was her boyfriend, he wanted to stay over, he wanted commitment – HE EVEN LEFT HIS  SOCK IN HER DRAWER so he’d be able to think about leaving something of his there when he was gone. He was a doll! And he didn’t get killed! So, I shall work that little tidbit into my book that sorta fits that scenario, MAKE ROOM FOR INDY. Love it!

Well, let me invite you to our FB event to celebrate the Hell Yeah! Kindleworld launch, which is coming up – August 11th.

Well, it’s been a good week and I’m looking forward to another. I finished one book and am about to complete another one. LOVE ME, I DARE YOU will be released early this week, probably Tuesday, Lord willing and the creek don’t rise – which in central Texas is always a fair to middlin possibility. TEXAS MAVERICK is so close to being through that I can see the whites of Maverick Cross’s eyes and I can tell you, I don’t mind looking at him either. To celebrate finishing the newest Hell Yeah! I went out and bought some BBQ, then stopped by the Container Store to get 3 wicker boxes to store things on that otherwise escape me – like…my glasses, the TV remote, my pen and plot notebook, my allergy medicine – you know, the essentials of life. My last stop before coming home was Petsmart to buy Mojo a Thundershirt. He doesn’t have anxiety when it thunders, not like Abby Grace, but he has horrible anxiety in the car, even though he begs like crazy to get to go somewhere. The ‘science’ behind the shirt is that it hugs the dog tightly. I was skeptical, but desperate. Once I purchased it, I put it right on him and his usual bat-shit-crazy display was reduced by at least half, if not more on the way home. I’m hopeful it will be the answer. I worked last night till 3 am on the final read of DARE before turning it over to the editors - - so, my next big step for today…is to take a nap.
I hope you all have a wonderful week.

                                               Now, sit with me and sigh for a few seconds.


 Oh, yea. And here’s the blurb for LOVE ME, I DARE YOU.

Joshua Long, World Champion Cowboy, is known wide and far as the ‘cowgirl whisperer’. His looks are fallen-angel handsome and his talents in the bedroom are legendary. Josh prides himself on being able to give a woman sheet-clawing, back-arching, toe-curling multiple orgasms. But at the peak of his career, Josh loses it all when his knee is shattered by a one-ton bull and his reputation is shredded by a scorned woman. After investing blood, sweat, and years into the rodeo, he has lost his career and the lucrative sponsorships that went with it. Returning to his hometown of Kerrville, a place he hasn’t always felt welcome, Josh is uncertain of the direction his life will take. But sometimes fate is kind and the lifeline that we need to hang onto our hopes and dreams appears just within our grasp. Josh has such a moment when he walks into Isaac McCoy’s HARDBODIES bar. There, surrounded by old friends who offer him a second chance, Josh’s gaze lands on a beautiful, blue-eyed redhead who draws him like a moth to a flame. Emma Zachary has lived life on a dare. There is nothing she won’t try, she grabs onto happiness with both hands, embracing every moment of joy she can find. Unwilling to accept the hand that life has dealt her, Emma refuses to let her blindness hold her back. She intends to make all of her dreams come true, especially the ones that include a certain cowboy who seems to always be there when she needs him. Emma longs to know what it’s like to be loved, so she takes a dare and bids on a date with rodeo Romeo, Josh Long. What she discovers is that one night in Josh’s arms will never be enough. Josh is tired of his reputation. He wants to be more than his father’s son; he wants to be more than just a buckle-bunnies fantasy man. Joshua wants a woman who sees him for who he really is, failures and all, and loves him anyway. Emma is tired of being alone. She needs someone who will look beyond her faults and want her in spite of the challenge she faces. Their journey together is filled with laughter, tears, danger, and sex hot enough to set the Hill Country of Texas on fire.
Join Emma and Josh as they learn the true meaning of love.
I dare you.
