Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Book 3 in the Rugged and Risque series.

After a humiliating breakup from her lying, cheating husband, Reese is in financial dire straits with her bed and breakfast. She’s also feeling the sting of all the happy hookups of late in Wilder, Texas. But then the ruggedly handsome stranger Caleb arrives in town, in need of a place to stay while he’s fixing up the Painted Horse Ranch he’s just purchased on the outskirts of town.

The sexual chemistry between Caleb and Reese is instantaneous and sizzling hot. There’s no denying they singe the sheets, but complications arise from his high-society family…and her ex. The cowboy and the cougar will need more than lust to overcome their obstacles and find their own happy ever after.

Where do I begin? I was a huge fan of the Secrets anthologies before I tried my hand at writing a novella for the collection. My first story was published in 2005 and I have enjoyed every single day thereafter as a Red Sage author. Object of Desire is my first single title for Red Sage, and I am so thrilled to have this book published! I love gutsy women who can take care of themselves, but who have soft sides only a special hero knows about. Laurel is such a woman. And Devon]] Well, to me, he's a modern-day Han Solo (the ultimate hero in my opinion!). He's a scoundrel, to be sure. A reluctant hero. A man who's willing to step up to the plateas long as there's a reward involved. But when he finally meets the right woman]] Even lost treasures can't compare to fiery passion and bone-deep love. Thanks, as always, to Alexandria Kendall, my publisher. And to Felecia, my editor. You've both made a dream come true for me. Finally, I'd like to dedicate this book to the most important people in my life. To the readers I have accumulated over the years: Without you]] well, my parents would have to buy a lot of books to keep me in the business! Thanks for your continued support and the kind words so many of you send me. To my family: Thanks for your never-ending encouragement and belief in everything I do! To Julie Townsend, Willie Inazu, Joanne Frederick and Joan Cihak (and in loving memory of Mary J. Leader): No words can express how grateful I am for your support, friendship and mentoring. I am so lucky to have such incredibly smart and wonderful people in my life! To my critique partners, Sherri Knauss, Erin Grady, Wendy Hood and Rachelle Chase: You always tell it like it is, and that has saved me from traveling some less-than-stellar paths! Thanks for all the encouragement and support you have offered, and for lending an ear during moments of panic! You are more than critique partnersyou're dear friends and sisters in crime! And to AJM: For listening to me all the damned time and never complaining about it (or my endless hours of writing).
