Getting It Right

by 

Christi Williams

 

Last of a long line of agrarian witches, Selene

Pertunda thinks she will never meet the right man…until with the help of a

little magic, she finds Beck McNeal.

 

 

 

Named for

the Goddess of Desire, can she dream of lasting happiness with only one man?

 

Selene Pertunda has no trouble attracting a man. She just can’t seem to

find the right one. From abusive husband Robert to tattooed bad boy lover

Kevin, Selene draws men to her like bears to her honeypot. The problem is that

none of them proves to be a good fit.

 

Sure she will never find a shared happiness, Selene has no way to suspect

she’s drawn the attention of a powerful goddess. So she scoffs at the idea that

the handsome man who begins to  play a large part in her life could be her

destiny.  After all, what could worldly, educated Beck McNeal want with a

small-town girl like Selene?

 

Selene and Beck try to their best to resist the inexplicable mutual

magnetism flaring between them. But can two ordinary people avoid the decree of

the Goddess of Desire?

Getting It Right

is the first novel-length work in

Meet the Daltons

Deep in Texas lives a ranching family. Mom, Pop and 5 big, strong sons. They live far enough from town to make them self-sufficient. If they can’t grow it, they don’t need it.

Except wives.

When the Dalton’s parents promise them land, on one condition, they sit up and take notice. But when they learn that they need to put a wife on the land before they get the deed, they realize just how difficult living in isolation really is. How do they find a wife who wants to live so far from civilization?

cowboycrazy800 (2)

I had to leave this image HUGE so you can get the full effect. Meet Hank and all his muscles. And you have to melt at that gorgeous face!

Book Description:

Five brides for five brothers…at least that’s the deal the Daltons have struck with their boys. Each son must marry in order to inherit a piece of the ranch they love so much.

Hank Dalton yearns to run his own spread, but more than that, he longs for a woman to call his own. Paradise Valley is far from civilization, though, and that makes finding the perfect match difficult. Not many women like being two hours from a major supermarket or mall.

Charlotte Halton is on the run. Poor choices have left her with scars—in and out. After her powerful boyfriend left her drugged and set their apartment on fire, she’s just trying to put the pieces of her life back together. Abandoning all she knows seems like the best decision she’s ever made. At least until her car breaks down in the middle of cattle country.

When a pretty little woman is delivered into Hank’s hands, he believes it was fate that kept him from joining his brothers for a “wife hunt” in the city. But she’s leery of men and hiding something dark. Can Hank tap into the attraction they both feel before she drives away?

cowboybargain2700 (2)

And this is Cash. Besides having that delicious love cradle of muscle riding above his jeans, he’s funny, doesn’t lose his temper quickly and knows what he wants.

 

Book Description:

Five brides for five brothers…at least that’s the deal the Daltons have struck with their boys. Each son must marry in order to inherit a piece of the ranch they love so much.When the new ranch hand the Daltons hire asks Cash for assistance, he’s all in—until he learns it involves a Mexican daughter and a marriage license. His first instinct is to run the other direction. But he figures he needs a wife and she needs help, so it’s a damn good bargain.

Maya Perez is desperate to get out of her home city and into the States, where she can make a better life. When her only living family member, her father, sends for her to come to Texas, she’s met by a gorgeous cowboy and an offer of marriage.

Cash figures being hitched to a woman is no different than taking care of cattle, but his bride is driving him crazy. Between her sharp tongue and soft curves, he’s over his head. Finding common ground might be the only way to tame his little bride.

***GIVEAWAY–one lucky commenter will receive a $5 Amazon GC *** Good luck!

 

Thanks for reading!

Fall at Shadow Maverick Ranch

Happy Friday everyone! With the cooler weather sliding on in, it looks to be a great weekend here in the south. I hope the same can be said for where you are!

I love this time of year. All the beautiful colors as the leaves change, the cooler weather, the winter squash. And, of course, my homemade hot chocolate with a shot of Buttershots makes for a cozy evening.

At Shadow Maverick Ranch, fall is the time for fixing things – the seemingly endless lines of broken fence, the farm equipment in need of maintenance or repair, the roof of the barn. There’s always something to do on a ranch, no matter the time of the year.

Oh! I almost forgot! The most important thing happening at Shadow Maverick this November is the wedding of Gavin Mathis and Lauren Delgado – who readers first met in White Collar Cowboy. ;-) (I didn’t really forget.)

Here’s a sneak peak of the cover:

White Collar Wedding is an Amazon exclusive, bonus short story. Thanks to all the readers who requested this story!

Mark your calendars. You won’t want to miss this one for only $0.99!

Now let’s chat – what are your favorite things about fall?

Until next time,

The winner of last post’s contest is aime3. If you will email me at sablehunter@rocketmail.com and tell me if you’d like How To Rope a McCoy or any one of my backlist, I’ll be glad to gift it to you.

I also have a new book coming out with the Red Hot Treats. It was supposed to be live yesterday, but the creek rose at my house and I was up it without a paddle – the details are much worse and you don’t want to know. Anyway…
I did finish it and it will be released by the weekend.
The name of it is LOVE’S MAGIC SPELL
And here’s the cover –

lovemagicspellwo
followed by the blurb and an excerpt.

Now here’s the current contest – if you could cast a spell on anyone to accomplish anything – what would it be? I will pick two random winners for a copy of LOVE’S MAGIC SPELL!!!

There’s nothing like a lawman, a Stetson wearing cowboy who puts his life on the line to protect lives, to stand up for the less fortunate, to shield the ones he loves from danger. Meet Raylan West, sheriff of Redbone Parish and the woman who would give anything for one night in his bed – Tory Summers.
Here’s the blurb and the open fantasy.
Enjoy.

Tory has one magical night to learn what love is all about.
Night after lonely night, she tosses in her solitary bed, longing to touch and be touched, to experience desire and rapture. Her body aches to know fulfilment – to be taken and possessed by a man, but only one man will do.
Raylan West is the man of her dreams and Tory Summers would give everything she owns for a chance with him. But it isn’t going to happen, a man like him is not for her. Unless…Tori finds a way.
Deep in the bayous of South Louisiana there are secrets, magical secrets. Hoodoo. Witchcraft. Will o’ the wisp floating over dark waters, lit by unearthly light.
Desperate for a chance, Tory places her faith in the supernatural. She travels deep into the swamp to acquire a love potion promised to bring Raylan under her spell for one night, one perfect moonlit Halloween night where anything is possible. For a few precious hours, Tory will be beautiful, desirable and sexy in Raylan’s eyes.
The only problem is…Tori wants the magic to last forever.

LOVE’S MAGIC SPELL
Excerpt

“Tory, I need coffee.” Raylan announced as he came through the door, locking it. He walked to her desk, took her by the arm and pulled Tory to her feet. “After I have you…”
Relief that he was safe swept over her body. “I’m so glad you’re back. I was worried.”
“Show me how glad you are,” he growled as he ran his fingertips underneath her shirt, pushing it up and over her head.
“Give me your hand, Sheriff.” He allowed her to guide his fingers between her legs. Even through the material, she knew he could feel her heat. “See how much I missed you?”
Raylan took advantage of where she placed his hand and he cupped her, massaging the soft place between her thighs, causing Tory to cling to his shoulders and go up on her tiptoes, wanting more.
““Have you been a good girl while I was gone?”
“No, Sheriff,” she drawled. “I’ve been a bad girl. I’m behind on my typing and filing because all I can do is fantasize about you.”
“Consider yourself under interrogation. What kind of fantasies?” While he spoke to her, Raylan was busy kissing her neck and backing Tori from her desk toward the jail cell wall.
“I feel so guilty,” she panted. “I’ve been plotting to get you into some…compromising positions. On top of me, under me, behind me…in me.”
Sheriff Raylan West chuckled. “I’m afraid I’m going to have to take you into custody.” He pushed her till her back was against the enclosure, then he lifted her hands above her head and fastened a pair of cuffs around her wrists, attaching them to the bars.
“Yea,” she moaned as he pulled her bra down and cupped her tits, squeezing them, lapping at her breast. “Oh, that’s good. I think you should…” she stopped talking because she couldn’t think while he was sucking her nipples.
“What should I do to you?”
“I think you should f…frisk me.”
He pushed aside her panties. “What is this I feel?”
“That’s my fleur,” she purred. “I had it trimmed especially with you in mind. You love the Saints and I love you.”
“Damn.” He traced the design with his finger.
Tory licked her lips. “I’m at your mercy, Raylan.” She whispered in his ear. “I think I’ve committed a penile offence.”
“Oh, really?” Raylan laughed.
“How about a full body search?” She suggested breathlessly.
“I’ll see what I can do.” Their lips crashed together, tongues tangling, gasping for breath. He pulled down her panties and tugged them off, tossing them to one side. “Spread ‘em sweetheart.”
Tory cooperated fully. Freeing his cock, Raylan placed a hand under each knee and lifted her, impaling Tory in one full, fluid thrust of his hips. “Yes, Raylan!” she cried as he began hammering into her soft, wet pussy.
“Harder, harder,” she panted, wrapping her legs around his waist.
BAM!
Tori blinked, her daydream suddenly brought to a halt.
“Tory, I need coffee.” Raylan stalked into the front office, slamming the door. Tory didn’t jump, she was used to his grand entrances.
Pushing aside her sexy fantasy, she brought herself back to boring reality. “You need more than coffee, just sit down and I’ll bring you something.” As she brewed him a cup dark enough to be expresso, Tory warmed a beignet in the microwave and let out a long sigh of relief. He was back. He was safe. She could breathe again. “How did it go?”
“Rance Bertrand is crazy. How do you think it went?” Raylan sighed, sat down at his desk and propped his feet up on the top drawer which was open just enough to accommodate his size 12 alligator skin boots.
She sat the coffee and pastry on his desk in front of him. “Here, it’s hot. Be careful.”
“Thanks.”
Tory returned to her chair and watched Raylan gingerly bite the beignet so the steam wouldn’t burn his mouth. “I’m just glad he didn’t shoot you. The man lives so deep in the swamp, he thinks the long arm of the law doesn’t reach that far.” She tried not to let fear for his safety reflect in her eyes. Hiding the fact that she was in love with Raylan West was a full time job.

HAPPY SWEETEST DAY!

Love, SABLE

Guest Blogger Merry Farmer – No Sin Stays a Secret

Everybody has secrets. You know, those little things in our past that we really, really hope no one finds out about? They’re so juicy and so scary. But there’s something about a hero with secrets that makes this reader’s heart go pitter-pat! The deliciousness of reading a book where the layers of mystery are slowly revealed to uncover things that the hero or heroine want to keep in the past is irresistible. You never know if the secrets are going to destroy the relationship that’s building between the hero and the heroine or whether they’re going to make it stronger.

My hero in Our Little Secrets, Michael West, has enough secrets to write a scintillating tell-all book. He may appear like a mild-mannered, upstanding frontier shopkeeper now, but let me tell you, there are some very naughty things in his past. Things he’s not proud of. Things that he’d rather forget. They also just happen to be some things that make him very, very good in bed. As in, he knows exactly what a woman wants and how to give it to her…and give it to her and give it to her.

Wait. That ordinary-seeming, ever-so-slightly reclusive shopkeeper who wears glasses? YES! Because as far as I’m concerned, the best secrets are the ones that you would never guess to look at someone. They’re like finding the surprise at the bottom of the cereal box. In Our Little Secrets, Charlotte definitely signs up for more than she bargained for…and all because of Michael’s secrets. Oh, but she had a few secrets of her own that will surprise Michael! But will all of these secrets come out in due time or when it’s least convenient? You’ll just have to read and see!

MerryCover

Blurb:

Michael West swore he would never fall in love again. So when the beautiful and wily Charlotte steps off the train looking for a new life he jumps at the business opportunity her search for a husband presents. Engaged forty-five minutes after meeting, married the next day, Michael thinks he’s found everything a respectable man should have. Except that Michael is as far from respectable as they come. They agreed not to ask questions about each other’s pasts, but when the past seeps into their present Michael suspects his passionate new wife is not who she says she is. But can he keep her at arm’s length when he’s already fallen in love with her?

Charlotte Baldwin has a secret. She fled Philadelphia to escape the sins of her past, but someone is following her. What better way to hide than by marrying Michael West, Cold Springs, Montana’s enigmatic shopkeeper? A new name, a new life, and am amorous husband is exactly what she needs to leave her sins behind. But when it comes to keeping secrets Charlotte may have met her match in Michael. And when a connection neither of them expects catches up with them, the shocking revelation means Charlotte may have run right into the arms of her enemy.

No sin stays a secret forever….

Excerpt:

“Missing home?” Michael startled her by speaking immediately behind her.

She twisted to face him. He was inches away. Her pulse raced.

“Hardly! This is home now, after all.”

He nodded, glancing out the window himself before looking back at her. She could see the question in his eyes before he worked his way around to asking it. “Would you like to go to bed now?”

She took a deep breath. Every bit of cock-eyed advice she’d ever heard on enduring your wedding night flooded into her mind all at once. It was time to find out just how far she would go for a new life.

“If you’re ready,” she tried to sound casual.

He arched an eyebrow at her behind his glasses. “I think the question is are you ready?”

There was only one way to find out. “Yes. I am.”

“Come on.” He slipped his hand into her ringed one. “We’ll take things slowly.”

She wished she knew what that meant. She wished she knew a lot more things than she did.

He led her out of the kitchen and down the hall to the bedroom. Her heart quivered in her chest and butterflies swirled expectantly in her gut.

He brought her to the bed and sat on the edge with her. She knew she should say something but words failed her. All she could do was watch as he took off his glasses and laid them on the small table beside the bed. Her heart thumped out of control in her chest. Without his glasses he seemed even more of a stranger.

“I take it you’ve never been with a man before.” It was a statement more than a question.

“No, I haven’t,” she gave him an honest answer. Secrets or no, that much was important.

“Don’t worry,” he said. “My guess is that everything you’ve been told about it is completely wrong.”

Her eyebrows shot up and her heart hitched in her chest. “Really?”

“Probably,” he nodded. “Making love is one of the most enjoyable activities known to man. Or woman. If done right.”

“I hope we do it right then,” she blurted, cursing herself for her stupidity.

He chuckled. “Not to flatter myself, but I know what I’m doing. Do you trust me?”

She stared at him, lips twitching to a grin. “I married you. Let’s call that close enough for now.”

His grin widened. “All right. It’ll do.”

He bent forward.

“What are you doing?” she gulped.

“Taking off my shoes,” he laughed.

“Oh.” She felt ridiculous and laughed with a nervous hiccup. Her face burned bright pink. “I’m sorry.” She leaned forward to unlace her boots, hands shaking.

“Don’t be. I promise I won’t do anything sudden,” he chuckled as he untied first one shoe and then the other, lining them up neatly at the foot of the bed. He pulled his socks off while he was at it and folded them before tossing them to the chair on the other side of the table.

She was slower with her boots, but as she yanked them off he took them and lined them up beside his shoes. Her stockings were another matter.

“Allow me.” He pretended chivalry, reaching for her leg.

She let him lift her stockinged ankle onto his thigh, balling her hands in the coverlet behind her to stop them from trembling. He surprised her by slipping his hands up under her skirt, above her knee to the ties high on her thigh that held the stockings to her corset. The warm roughness of his fingers brushing against such intimate skin sent a giddy rush through her.

“It’s all about touch,” he explained as he dawdled with her stockings, stroking her flesh. “Intimacy comes from the simple act of touching each other in ways that we would never allow anyone else to touch us.” He glanced up and met her eyes, his gaze hot and vivid.

“I see,” she croaked and cleared her throat. She couldn’t focus on anything but the sensuality of his fingers where they shouldn’t have been.

His grin deepened. “Touching feels good.”

“Yes it does,” she blurted before she could stop herself. She was being a complete ninny, but what could anyone expect with his hands teasing her like that?

He finished unfastening her stocking and rolled it down, pulling it off over her tingling toes. She let out the breath she’d been holding. When he gestured for her other leg she offered it. He repeated the same heady mix of removing her stocking and stroking her thigh. Dear Lord, it was going to be a long night.

A Cowboy and a Secret Baby – The Cowboy Earns a Bride, by Cora Seton

The Cowboy Earns a Bride is now available!

CoraSeton_TheCowboyEarnsaBride_200

Blurb:

Wedding bells are ringing on the Double-Bar-K and Luke Matheson is determined to make his move on his favorite bridesmaid—sweet, sexy Mia Start. Though she’s shared his house for more than two months, she’s remained elusive. Luke’s ready to cross that divide, and win her love for good.

Mia would give anything to marry Luke, but he won’t want her once he knows the truth; she’s four months pregnant with another man’s child. It’s time to find a real home—and a real job—so she can raise her baby alone.

When a nosy neighbor exposes Mia’s pregnancy at his brother’s wedding, Luke sees his chance to finally get what he wants. He lays claim to the baby—and to Mia—but their happily-ever-after lasts barely a day. When Luke’s pride clashes with Mia’s need for independence, Mia calls their brand new engagement off.

Can Luke convince her to change her mind? Or will these wedding bells sound the death knell of their relationship?

Excerpt:

“I want a baby with you, Mia. I want to marry you.” Luke knew this wasn’t the right moment for a proposal but here he was, jumping the gun, proposing anyway. He didn’t know what else to do. He’d tried to convince Mia to date him. He’d done everything he could to let her know how he felt. He’d wanted to make love to her for months. She’d been living right under his nose, tempting him with every sway of her hips as she moved about the house straightening up, every bounce of her breasts when she dashed up and down the stairs getting ready for a day’s work. But he wanted more than that, too. He wanted his ring on her finger, his name on her debit card and his baby in her arms. He wanted it all—everything that Ethan had with Autumn, that Ned was about to have with Fila. He wanted it all and he wanted it right now.

“Mia? Did you hear me? I want to marry you.”

She had gone as pale as the paint on the wall behind her. Her eyes were huge in her face and he wanted to kiss away the fear in them. What was she afraid of? Him?

“Say yes.” He took her hand in his. Tugged her closer. “Damn it, say yes, Mia.”

“I…” She couldn’t seem to answer.

“Stop thinking. Just say yes.” He bent down to kiss her, but she gasped and pulled back.

“I’m sorry.” Tears sparkled in her eyes. “I’m sorry! I tried to tell you!”

“Tell me what?” He refused to let her go. His arms tightened around her waist until they formed a cage she couldn’t break out of. Strength had its advantages. This time she wouldn’t get away. “What do you have to tell me?”

“I’m pregnant already.”

When Molly Hayes’ marriage fell apart, she ran home to Hayes Ranch to lick her wounds. What she really wants to lick is foreman Chance McDaniel, the star of all her erotic fantasies. But he had never given her the time of day. Why would he give her his nights?

Kink is a mild term for the kind of sex Chance McDaniel enjoys. But he’s learned the hard way not all women can handle his darker desires. He aches to give Molly the ride of her life but fears she’ll shy away from his wilder ways.

Eight Second Ride

Jessie Wade is a tough as nails sheriff until bull rider Kyle Mitchell ends up in her jail. With his bone-melting good looks and seductive voice, he knocks Jessie’s defenses down one by one and awakens the sensuous woman she’s hidden beneath her uniform. But Jessie can’t afford to be soft. Or allow herself to fall for a cowboy who’s never in one town longer than it takes to ride a bull.

Kyle never backs down from a challenge, but after a passionate night with Jessie, he realizes there’s a hell of a woman behind the handcuffs and badge. Can Kyle convince Jessie he can take her for more than an eight-second ride?

 

Excerpts:

Back in the Saddle

“Dance with me, Molly.”

Danger! Danger!

She opened her mouth to refuse him, but somehow instead, found herself rising from the booth and following him to the dance floor. Only two other couples were making use of the music. Chance tactfully led her to a corner where the lights didn’t hit them. She was stiff within the circle of his arms, moving like a windup doll, until one hand slid up her back to hold the nape of her neck.

“Relax, Molly.” His mouth was at her ear, his breath a warm breeze against her skin. “It’s just a dance. Sometimes it helps to shut out everything else and just fall into the music.”

She was trying, but his body was so warm against hers and there was no mistaking the hard thickness of his cock pushing against her through the denim of his jeans. His scent teased at her nostrils, a heady blend of something woodsy and the smell of leather and horses. She was sure he’d showered but somehow, for men who worked at ranching rather than playing, the aroma burned its way into their skin. She loved it. Always had. If she wanted to be truthful, it was almost an aphrodisiac. She pressed herself just a millimeter closer.

What she would have given all those years ago to be where she was right this minute. But a lot of water had washed over the dam since then, and the last thing she wanted was to have Chance McDaniel feeling sorry for her.

“I…haven’t danced in a while,” she said lamely as she tried to relax in his grip.

God. Could I sound any more idiotic?

He chuckled, a low rumbling sound. “I think it’s like riding a horse. You never really forget. I think you could probably say that about everything.”

His lean fingers massaged the knot at the nape of her neck, his arm holding her against him as they shifted their bodies minimally in place. The stroking of those fingers sent shivers down her spine, but they also coaxed her to relax and move in rhythm with him. She actually found herself leaning her head against his shoulder.

“That’s it,” he whispered. “I learned music can make you forget just about any damn thing.”

 

Eight Second Ride

Kyle Mitchell wanted to pry his eyes open but someone was pounding a drum inside his head so hard he was afraid to see daylight. Not only that, but whatever he was lying on was harder than a concrete floor and killing his back. He needed aspirin and coffee in large supply. He tried to raise his hands to press them against his aching temples but something jerked his right hand and prevented him from lifting it. Now he opened his eyes. And wished he hadn’t.

Unfortunately this wasn’t the first jail cell he’d been in, but he was pretty sure it was the worst. And he was pretty sure it hadn’t been modernized in the last fifty years. One wall consisted of the usual arrangement of bars with a portion of it hinged for a door. The sleeping arrangement, rather than a crummy cot that would have been a vast improvement, was a flat piece of wood with a mattress on it so thin he was sure he’d be able to see through it. And it was the kind that pulled down from the wall on chains.

And speaking of chain, he yanked at his right hand again and discovered he was handcuffed to one length of chain.

Damn! What the hell had happened? What had he gotten himself into now?

Squinting against the brightness of the light from the ceiling lights he looked down the length of his body.

Boots. Check.

Jeans. Check.

He clapped his left hand over his waist in a sudden panic.

Champion belt buckle! Okay! Check.

Shirt. Check.

He rubbed a hand over his square jaw, feeling the stubble of yesterday’s beard growth. Testing everywhere on his face he discovered his nose was tender but not broken, but the rest of his face felt as if a bull had stomped on it.

Wait. Was that what had happened? The last thing he remembered was lasting the full eight seconds on Sodbuster before landing in the dirt of the rodeo arena. Everything else was a blur.

“Well. It looks like you’re finally awake.”

The voice was pure music, soft, with a faint drawl. Squinting through the bars he thought for a minute his heart was going to stop beating. In the hallway looking in at him was about five-foot-four of the most breathtaking woman he’d ever seen. Dark blonde curls tumbled down to her shoulders, framing a lightly tanned face with emerald green eyes peeking out from thick, thick lashes. The stiff fabric of the uniform shirt she wore couldn’t conceal the lush ripeness of her breasts any more than the pants hid her mouthwatering curves.

But what really shook him up was the star gleaming from its place of prominence on her shirt, right over one of those nicely rounded breasts.

Holy hell! This was the sheriff?

He looked at her and something inside turned over. He had an urgent need to see this woman naked in his bed, but not the way he did with the usual women he rolled in the sheets with. Not an eight-second ride and done. No, even in his pitiful condition he could imagine making slow, soul-searing love to her. Everything from his balls to his brain went on instant alert.
