In other news, here’s my latest new release and contribution to the “Whispers in Wyoming” series, a contemporary Christmas Inspirational and Christian western romance, All That Glitters. Although this is book 16, it can easily be read as a stand-alone novel.
Nicole, the heroine in the story, is an actress from Santa Monica who decides to spend Christmas at The Sweetwater ranch in Wyoming with her daughter, Amy, to consider a proposal from her boyfriend, Drew, the billionaire architect of her acting career and owner of a studio and Hollywood legacy. Enter, Jack Colten, a handsome new wrangler at the ranch.
In the following scene, Nicole has been ice skating and showing off some of her talents at the rink. During a jump and spinning move, she landed wrong and fell, injuring her ankle badly. Here’s a brief excerpt from “All That Glitters.”–:
Turning to Jack, Amy said, “Cowboy Jack, I’m so glad you’re here to help my mommy walk to the van.”
“I don’t think she’s going to be able to walk. I’ll just carry her. Nicole, put your arms around my neck and on the count of three. Ready?” Jack’s tone of authority left her no time to protest. What single girl wouldn’t mind wrapping their arms around such a handsome man anyhow? She did what he instructed and clasped her hands together behind his neck, her heart beating rapidly.
“One, two, three.” He scooped her up in seconds as if she weighed a feather. “Amy, will you…”
Eight-year-old Amy held up a hand toward Jack to silence him, finishing his sentence. “Talk to the hand, Cowboy Jack. I know, return the rental skates, get our stuff, and meet you at the van. Got it, get it, good!”
He shook his head and chuckled, pausing with her in his arms. “Man, she is smart as a whip!”
“See what I go through?” Nicole rolled her eyes and then Amy skated away to do everything needed. “Don’t forget my purse!”
“I won’t, Mom!” Amy called over one shoulder, nearly colliding with the wall on the edge of the rink.
“Watch where you’re going, and be careful!” Nicole called out as the handsome wrangler carried her to the van.
“I’ll be careful!” Amy called back.
“Yeah, what your mom said,” Jack added softly as he looked down at her and their eyes met, causing her to blush.
When he placed her in the front passenger seat of The Sweetwater van used to drive guests around the small city of Lander, his lips nearly brushed hers as he set her down. She could feel his warm breath on her lips and hear his heart beating against her own chest. She could tell by the look in his eyes they were both sorry the moment had come to an end.
He pulled away to help other passengers and gently closed the door. Nicole bit her lip and settled reluctantly into the seat, observing him closely when he walked around to the driver’s side. There was intense attraction pulling the two of them together. The pull was stronger than she’d first believed, and she reckoned it was a force they were both going to face at some point, soon. For the first time, she realized Jack knew it, too. His brown eyes said everything words couldn’t yet. At least she had the drive back to the ranch to look forward to. Maybe the handsome wrangler would finally talk to her, really talk to her. Deep down, she realized it was what she’d been hoping for since the first time she saw Jack Colten.
