The Valentine’s Anthology Cowboys & Candy releases today from JK Publishing and features five amazing authors: Avery Gale, Jess Buffett, Willow Brooke, Lynn Ray Lewis and Gracie Meadows. I’ve invited them here today to you introduce to this hot and sexy book, perfect for some added spice for your Valentine’s Day!
Lighting Up Valentine’s Day by Avery Gale ~ Kylie Stone returns to her west Texas home to open a veterinary clinic, knowing her biggest distraction will be the man who has always seen her as nothing but the pesky, young daughter of his employer. Ranch foreman, Gavin McCloud hasn’t missed the fact Kylie is no long a girl, but he worried his kinks might be too much for her, until overhearing Kylie’s comments to her best friend about heroes in her erotic novels. Gavin then wonders if their needs might not mesh after all.
Her Outback Valentine by Jess Buffett ~ Harper Andrews left home four years earlier, but never forgot about the cowboy who stole her heart, Ethan Taylor. Now Harper is home and determined to pick up where they left off, only this time, they play by her rules.
Roping Cupid by Willow Brooke ~ Finally home after finishing medical school, the last thing Harley Brannon expects to come face to face…er…horse with, is a flash from her past—Tim Kindle. Can Cupid knot the rope around their hearts, this time for good?
Edna’s Heart by Lynn Ray Lewis ~ Edna “Eddie” Parker had been in love with Mathew Everly for years. When her world falls apart, will he admit his own feelings for her? Or will he continue to insist love is for sissy’s?
Roping Candy’s Heart by Gracie Meadows ~ Candy Drake, a local mechanic, set out on a call to fix a broken down truck, never expecting more than a simple service call. That is, until she meets Brett Turner.
Brett Turner comes to town, ready to plant his feet after leaving the rodeo circuit. Who knew a broken down truck and a small little woman could cause more adrenalin to course through his body than a twenty-five hundred pound bull.
When the truck starts, and the passion ignites between the two, will love be found by fixing a simple part, or will their love be heading to the junk yard?
From Avery Gale: Lighting Up Valentine’s Day is a story about the power of truly believing that what you want is worth waiting for. It’s sweet and hot, with a bright and beautiful heroine and a handsome ranch foreman who wants his sex hot and kinky enough to light up the sky.
Excerpt: “Kylie?” When she stopped and turned back toward him, he stepped forward and kissed the end of her pert little nose softly. “Welcome home, sweetheart.” Her eyes went stark-wide open, and her surprise was so cute he had to hold back his smile because it sure wouldn’t do for her to think he was laughing at her. “Hurry back. I’ll still be waiting for you.” Kylie was an incredibly bright and perceptive woman, and ordinarily she would have questioned him relentlessly about his comment. The fact she let it slide spoke volumes about how off-balance she was. Perfect. Oh, he knew he could probably have her in his bed before the sun set, but this wasn’t just about winning her body. Gavin wanted to win her heart, because he knew that Kylie wouldn’t truly surrender her body into his care unless he’d won her heart.
From Jess Buffett: AN AUSTRALIAN VALENTINE’S DAY ~ As everyone knows by now, I’m an Aussie. Our Valentine’s Days are set in one of the warmest months of the year here, so when I thought of doing a Vday story, an outback cowboy definitely came to mind.
Valentine’s Day itself isn’t as big these days for my hubby and I—we’ve been doing it for a while. lol. Our first Valentine’s Day together was in 2000, when I was 14yrs old. At 15yrs we had actually ‘broken up’ as kids do, but he still left something for me on my door step, and by 16yrs we were together again, and stayed that way. So I’m pretty lucky because while we may not make a big thing about Valentine’s Day anymore, it’s only because we’ve made it a point to try and treat every day as Vday. To say I love you, to gift one another with a kiss, and to remember that while one day a year everyone makes point of showing they care…we get all year. 😉
From Willow Brooke: This story was so fun for me to write. The horse scene came from a blast from the past back in high school. Two of my good buddies had finished hauling hay, and took off on horseback into town where everyone who was someone would be cruising town on a Friday night. With a thirty pack of Coors Light in their saddlebags, they rode up beside us at Sonic and ordered their food, cracking jokes about their “Mustang” they were rolling in. When our very own Barney Fife pulled up, he simply told them to loose the beer. Being the little sis to them all and a good sport, I had it put in my trunk and we all headed out to the barn for a bon fire party. Now, we were all under age, but the good deputy didn’t seem to think that was an issue… just that operating a horse while intoxicated might not be legal. Good times. It is crazy things that happen while growing up in a small town that have to be included in books, otherwise no one would ever hear about them! Thank you so much for having us Lynne! We love you!
