Kissing Her Cowboy

Summary:

A cowboy with a fractured back and a cop with a broken spirit heal on a Texas ranch with the help of a stallion named Big Blue.

Excerpt:

“Oh, Lord.” Treymont Woods kicked up dust on his boots as he sauntered from the stables to the woman who just had to be his new riding student. Her flaming red hair swooshed from one side of her shoulders to the other as she watched his stallion, Big Blue, canter inside the corral. Her hands, knuckles white, clutched the fence and every muscle in her tall, slim figure looked tight. Before he could get to her, she pivoted toward the parking area, moving her feet like she was fixin’ to run.

“Hey there!” He called out as a distraction. By the time Trey reached the woman’s side, he could hear her breathing like she’d raced a Texas mile. Before he could introduce himself, she turned to him with wide green eyes and shouted, “He’s huge!” Pink splotches bloomed under the freckles on her pale skin.

She licked her bottom lip and shook her head. “No, no, no, no….” and started backing away. “I can’t do this. Keep my deposit. I’ll figure something else out.”

Trey lifted his hands in mock surrender. “Okay. No problem. You don’t have to ride if you don’t want to.” Her jeans looked too tight for riding, anyway, and that white blouse would be smudged inside five minutes. Hadn’t the woman ever been to a ranch before?

She stopped moving then and frowned at him, causing twin lines to form above her nose. Her adorable nose, now that he’d gotten a decent look. In fact, everything about the woman seemed downright appealing, despite her reaction to Big Blue. Who in their right mind wouldn’t love the greatest horse that ever lived, on sight?

Join Me-International Short Story Month! #shortreads @ShortStoryMonth

May 2015 is the third annual International Short Story Month, inspired by April’s National Poetry Month, which began in 1996. Short stories have made a huge comeback with the introduction of ebooks and e-readers and some claim we’re poised for another “short story golden age.”

Do you read and enjoy short stories? Personally, I love them. Short stories give us the opportunity to try an author’s work without a huge time commitment or financial investment. They’re also a great way to follow authors who write both shorts and novels. I happen to be one of those authors, and would love for you to try my books if you haven’t yet. My Lunchbox Romance short stories from Boroughs Publishing are KISSING HER COWBOY and its standalone sequel HER CHRISTMAS COWBOY; both with positive reviews and only .99/

I hope you’ll celebrate International Short Story Month with me. For more information visit: http://internationalshortstorymonth.com/

I’m thrilled to announce that SANTA TO THE RESCUE, my sweet firefighter romance novella, has been reissued by Entangled Publishing with a great new cover as part of their Bliss line. Isn’t it pretty? And still only .99! My hero Jamey Tucker and heroine Heather Longhurst look better than ever.

SantaToTheRescueBlissCover

A Love Romances Cafe’ Reader’s Choice Award Winner!

Summary:

Firefighter Jamey Tucker knows three things in life to be true: an honorable man doesn’t go back on his word; never hurts a woman; and lasting love isn’t a myth. But with his recent move to a new job at Appleton Fire Station, the long hours don’t offer hope of finding the love he’s looking for.

When Jamey meets beautiful pediatric nurse Heather Longhurst after hearing her sing Santa Baby in a supermarket aisle, he offers her a promise he discovers he can’t keep. Heather has been betrayed by men in the past, making it hard for Jamey to gain her trust. Determined to find a way to win her heart, Jamey uses firefighter engine-uity and Heather’s favorite song to prove he’s got Christmas spirit she can believe in all year.

Here’s what book bloggers are saying about SANTA TO THE RESCUE.

Do You Review?

Nothing says love to an author like a great review, especially for a new release. We authors work hard on our stories and hope our readers will enjoy them.

When Examiner.com Women’s Fiction editor Kristin Contino included my new release KISSING HER COWBOY in her “Romantic Reads for Valentine’s Day” column and rated the story 5 Stars on Amazon, she gave me the best Valentine’s Day gift an author could hope for. Good reviews let an author know she’s done her job and point readers in the direction of a book they might enjoy.

 KISSING HER COWBOY by Adele Downs

A Lunchbox Romance Short Story

Only .99 from Boroughs Publishing!

A cowboy with a fractured back and a cop with a broken spirit heal on a Texas ranch with the help of a stallion named Big Blue.

Summary:

Treymont Woods is forced to take light duty work around Breezy Meadows Ranch after a rodeo accident. While Trey’s body heals, he offers riding lessons to Houston locals on the greatest horse that ever lived, Big Blue. When police officer Daisy Phillips arrives for her first session, sparks fly. But her invisible wounds run deep, making it hard for her to form connections. KISSING HER COWBOY is the story of two broken people who heal on the road to their happily ever after.
