12. 05/22/18 – LONE HEART
13. 06/26/18 – COCHISE, Montana Bounty Hunters series

I have favorites among these stories for differing reasons…

My favorite covers? In Too Deep is just gorgeous! Cochise is sexy as hell!

In Too Deep

*~*~*

My favorite characters? Reaper is a grumpy hard-ass, who can show a surprisingly tender side to his wife, Carly. I made him suffer in Reaper’s Ride! And then there’s Lacey Jones from Dagger… I haven’t had that much fun writing an introduction to a story in a very long time. If you want to read that intro, head here. My “Bounty Hunter Barbie” is unique.

Dagger

*~*~*

My favorite stories? What can I say, I love writing bounty hunters. I love writing the action-packed takedowns of stupid criminals. They are a blast to write. My bounty hunter stories are chock-full of action!

Dagger

*~*~*

My sexiest story? Hands down, it’s The Bounty-Part 2, because for the shorties, I let the “dirty girl” out to play!

The Bounty 2

Marie Tuhart – New Release

Hi Everyone,

I’m currently somewhere in the Pacific on an Alaskan cruise. It’s a family cruise with 19 family members including me. We’re having a great time.

I had a new release this month. Her Desert Prince.  This is the first book in my Desert Destiny series.

HerDesertPrince_MarieTuhart (3)

Blurb:

Catherine Taylor is no stranger to life’s school of hard knocks. At the tender age of 18, she left her dysfunctional family behind and struck out on her own, finally free to embrace her passion for creating art. After years of hard work, she has achieved some degree of acclaim. When she is offered the opportunity to work in the small middle eastern country of Bashir to create the defining mural for the new children’s critical care ward, Catherine embraces the chance to meld her love of children and her love of art. What she doesn’t think she is ready for is the blatant and instant passion she feels the moment she meets the successful country’s crown prince, Malik.

Malik al-Hakim has been raised with the sole purpose of someday becoming the king of his beloved country of Bashir. Years of careful preparation by his loving family has him ready to take the yoke from his father one day, but nothing could prepare him for the instant lust he feels the moment he sees Catherine. Never one to let an opportunity slip by, Malik pursues Catherine convincing her to explore their desire. But when political intrigue places Catherine in danger, Malik soon realizes lust has evolved to love and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep the woman of his dreams safely by his side, no matter how hard she tries to fight their fate.

Excerpt:

She stepped outside, the scent of jasmine filled her senses and her muscles instantly relaxed. The quiet snick of the door closing spurred her into action. She took the first path until she found a nice grassy area beneath a palm tree. She sat down and opened her sketchpad.

Her fingers flew over the pages as she captured the scenes flittering through her mind. She lost all track of time until a husky male voice said, “Hello, beautiful.”

Her head snapped up to see the stranger from the airport.

“What are you doing here?” she asked, pulling the sketchbook to her chest.

“I was about to ask you the same thing.” He slipped closer. “What are you drawing?” He craned his neck but couldn’t see anything.

“Nothing.” She closed the book with a snap, but her cheeks turned pink, making him even more curious about what she’d been drawing.

Then a memory nudged his brain. “You’re the artist commissioned to do the mural at the hospital.” He shook his head, trying to reconcile her with the woman at the airport.

“Yes.” Her chin came up, and he couldn’t help but grin. She was defensive about her work for some reason. No worries; he thought it was great. But part of him wanted to haul her into his arms and kiss her again. Instead, he followed a saner choice and sat down on the grass across from her.

She wiggled an inch or two away, then her gaze met his. She was wary of him, but he caught a hint of curiosity in her gaze.

“I’m Catherine Taylor.” She held a hand out to him.

“Malik.” He grasped her hand, lowered his head, and caressed her knuckles with his lips. A slight shiver moved through her body and transferred to him. So she was affected by him. Good. He squeezed her fingers.

Jared McIntyre lived through loving and the death of one thrill-seeking woman, and wasn’t about to let that happen again. Especially not to Lacey. But that would mean he’d have to allow himself to love again.

The Wrong Cowboy to Love

Wrong Cowboy to Love 6x9Book 3

Tumbling Creek Ranch series

Computer geek Ruby Cutter feels like a fish out of water with a makeover her cousin put her through for the bachelorette party and wedding. The only reason she went along with it…her high school crush will be at the wedding. She’d fantasized for years over him and plans to make him see her.

Dillon Wallis is minding his own business getting ready for a gig at a bar when a tipsy, blonde who is with a bachelorette party and doesn’t realize she’s gorgeous, tumbles into his arms and captures his heart.

The only problem…she’s in love with his cousin.

Here is an excerpt from The Wrong Cowboy to Love.

She settled on her bottom, her legs crossed in front of her. He sat the same way. They held hands as he sang the song that had been written as he sat here strumming his guitar.

When he finished, Ruby stared at him for so long he thought she was trying to think of something nice to say.

“It’s just a—”

“True comparison. The words, the nuances. That should be the first song you send out as a demo.” She raised his hands to her lips and kissed them. “I’ve never heard anything so poetic.”

He lay backwards, pulling her on top of him. “You keep talking like that and I’ll start getting a big head.”

She placed her forearms on his chest and looked down at him with her dimple twinkling. “I just tell things like I see them.”

“I’m beginning to think you’re just hanging around with me because you think I’ll be a big star one day.” He raised his eyebrows as if questioning her.

Ruby laughed. “Not think. I know.”

“You going to be my roadie?” He liked the idea of her coming to his gigs with him.

“It depends on what it entails.” She was running a finger lightly back and forth over his bottom lip.

The softness of the touch had his cock growing again.

“You help me set up my equipment, take videos, and caress my ego afterwards.” He nipped her finger.

She pulled it back. “I might be able to do that, if the gigs aren’t too far from Bozeman.”

“There’s one more requirement,” he said, grasping her bottom and sliding her body up his so he could kiss her.

“What’s that?”

“I need lots of these.” He kissed her, long, wet, and breathless as his hands kneaded her hips and sides. He felt her nipples pebble through his cotton shirt as her weight pressed down on him.

He came up for air, and she mewed like a kitten when his lips left hers. A quick roll and she was under him. His forearms were on either side of her holding his weight off her. He captured her lips once more before dropping kisses down her neck to her t-shirt collar.

Her hands skimmed his neck as she played with his hair.

“I think we could negotiate a deal,” she said breathlessly as he ran kisses back up her neck.

“What kind of a deal,” he asked, lingering with his lips barely a hair’s breadth from hers.

She licked her lips. Her tongue skimmed his mouth and he didn’t wait for an answer.

Dillon captured her mouth again, this time, tasting her fully and dallying with her tongue as he cradled her head in his hands.

Ruby’s senses were sparking, and her mind had gone from coherent to zeroing in on all the pulses, throbs, and yearnings in her body. Dillon’s kiss had her gasping for air but not wanting to break the kiss. His tongue had triggered sensations not only in her head but her breasts and her mound that had become sensitive to his hardness pressing against it.

Even as she rationalized all the sensations and realized the parts of her that were awakening, she knew this wasn’t the place she wanted to make love to Dillon. She wanted it to be where they could stay and revel in the aftermath. Not have to dress, hop on a horse, and ride for two hours.

She released her hold on his neck and with reluctance drew out of the kiss.

Dillon raised his head and peered into her eyes. “Too much, too soon?”

She started to say yes but changed her mind. “No.” She brushed his lips with hers. “I want more, but I don’t want it here, rushed.” Her neck started heating.

Do You Take This Cowboy?

For Better… For Worse…

More Harland County and At-Ease Ranch on the way!

Howdy! It’s Donna Michaels and I’m thrilled to share pre-order links for two of my upcoming books releasing in July! Books that are ending their series. It makes me sad but it’s time to move on. Not yet, though. I’m very excited to share these stories with you!

First, I know it’s been awhile, but let’s head to Harland County for Book 11: HER DOGGONE COWBOY! 🙂 This is Dr. Sawyer Kirkland’s story. He’s the veterinarian mentioned throughout the series and actually introduced in Book 9.

I’m sad that this series is coming to an end. The characters are like family but it’s okay because the next series is…Heroes of Harland County. Yep, I’m not leaving the county just yet, and some familiar faces will make appearances. In fact, the hero to kick off the first book will be another McCall. Mac is Logan and Linc’s younger brother and he’s finally getting his own story. Many readers have read my books in Sable Hunter’s Hell Yeah Kindle World and asked about Mac. He’s the perfect hero to start off my next Harland County series.

But, there’s still one more book to go in the original series, and I’m having so much fun writing his story and it’ll be out July 31st!

HER DOGGONE COWBOY
Harland County Series Book 11/Sawyer

Trouble lives next door… and he’s too darn cute for her own good. 

After a stint in the military, Pamela Miller is content with her IT job and her quiet calm life, until she inherits a ranch in Harland County, along with all the livestock and surprises that come with it—including a mischievous goat with a penchant for swallowing the most embarrassing things. Unsure whether to sell or stay, she decides to “live in Aunt Millie’s boots” for a while, and that decision has nothing to do with her encounters with the super-hot veterinarian who owns the ranch next door.

Animals were Dr. Sawyer Kirkland’s salvation during his troubled teens and their care and welfare is now his number one priority. He’s too busy, too committed to his work to worry about love and marriage. Been there. Done that. No thanks. He has a dog for companionship and doesn’t need a woman, but each time his sexy new neighbor walks into his clinic with an animal in need, he feels the wall he built around his heart start to crack. As Sawyer and Pam deal with x-rays, escaping llamas, and a goat cam that leads to a hidden stash of risqué items, realizing killer chemistry isn’t the only thing they have in common has Sawyer rethinking his priorities.

*************************************

Now, let’s switch gears and head to mid Texas for the final book in The Men of At-Ease Ranch Series: THE ARMY RANGER’S SURPRISE. Again, it’s sad to think that there are no more Army Rangers to torture…I mean write about. 😉 But throughout the series there has been one hero I’ve been wanting to give a happily-ever-after to…and that’s Leo.

In real life, unfortunately, there have been a few suicides in my husband’s unit. You may have already heard me mention this before, but these were men I knew. One had been in our house with his family. At one time, Tim had helped me with my website. We went to his son’s birthday parties. My husband even dressed as Elmo at one of them when the person they’d hired couldn’t make it. Suicide affects so many. Even I have a hard time talking about Tim. But we need to acknowledge the struggle men and women have trying to readjust to civilian life. I used my whole series to show Leo’s struggle and his arc, and I’m honored to finally give him his much deserved HEA. And all through a romantic comedy series. I know. Crazy, right? But hopefully, I’ve managed to be dark, but not desolate, and light, but not fluffy. I did my best to portray this serious subject in a heartwarming way. I can’t wait for Leo’s story to release on July 9th!

She’s about to remind him how good life can be.

Army brat, Kaydee Wagner is the queen of adapting, until her overloaded plate nearly cracks from her stack of responsibilities. Help arrives from her neighbor’s gorgeous grandson, and soon the man who’s fueled her hot fantasies is knocking things off her list and overloading her nights with hot kisses, and sigh-worthy caresses.

Former Army Ranger Leo Reed is ready to rise above his past and enjoy life again. So when the woman he can’t stop thinking about needs help with home repairs, he happily volunteers, and soon, he gives in to the attraction he fought for months.

Their off-the-charts chemistry turns into a budding romance neither of them saw coming. But when trouble at work resurrects Leo’s self-doubts just before Kaydee discovers she’s pregnant, she wonders if the news will bring them closer or push him away.

But when a costly mistake puts her career in jeopardy, Sable could lose everything.

Lawmen of Wyoming-Rhonda Lee Carver

Hi, everyone!

I hope life is treating you well. I’ve been eyeball deep in writing heroes. Have you read my Lawmen of Wyoming series?

From Book 1: The hat. The gun. And the will to protect.

Showing up to investigate a double homicide, Sheriff Phoenix Cade almost comes out of his boots when he sees the blonde–the only witness to the crime–covered in blood. He’d danced with her a few nights before and had every intention of getting her number until she threw up all over his shoes. Hell, his shoes would wash…

Ria Portman has spent the better part of six years convincing her family and friends that she could take care of herself. The accident took her sight, but it didn’t take her independence. There were a lot of things she’d learned over the years, especially regarding men. They said they could handle her disability, but truth was, they lied. When her assistant and client are murdered in her studio she will have to rely on one man—the one man who makes her want to trust again.

Phoenix is over his ex, but since he caught her cheating he’s compared relationships to playing with fire. It’s only a matter of time before a man gets burnt. Yet, Ria is different. She’s beautiful, smart, challenging, and doesn’t need him…even when she does. He should keep his head on straight because the killers want her dead and it’s his job to keep her safe. However, he’s realizing, a man in love becomes a giant. He’ll protect Ria with a force unlike any that has ever been seen before.

New Book and Apologies – Marie Tuhart

Hi Everyone,

Sorry it’s been so long since I posted. Life got in the way bit time and I’m just now playing catch up. Plus for some reason my calendar program wiped out all my reminders to post. I’ll be better, I promise.

I have a new cowboy book out. It took a while, but Billionaire Cowboy’s Conquest is finally out and live.

perf5.000x8.000.indd

Blurb:

Sidelined from his rodeo career by an injury, billionaire Texas rancher Hunter Knight returns to home to find the staff overworked and the office a mess. He hates paperwork, so he’s pleased to hear his sister has hired an office manager. But when he finds out it’s Jessica Sinclair, his sister’s party-girl best friend from college, he’s not happy and wants her fired. Even worse than her partying past, he’s attracted to her. Burned once by his gold-digging, city woman of an ex-wife, he has no interest in playing with fire.

Dogged by a past that won’t let her go, Jessica arrives at the ranch with a plan: excel as an office manager, stay away from the bulls, and no cowboys. Her father died when thrown from a bull when she was a kid, so avoiding them is key. Cowboys, well, they’re just as dangerous as the bulls. Then there’s Hunter Knight, part owner of the Double K ranch. This stubborn cowboy can ruin everything by sending her away before she can earn a single penny. Buying time with a proposal solves one problem but leads her straight into riskier territory, fighting an attraction to the bull-riding billionaire boss.

Can this city girl and cowboy survive the wildest ride of their lives?

I really hope you enjoy this new cowboy story. I will try to do more, right now I have 2 series starting up.

Desert Destiny series will be 4 books coming out starting in June through the end of 2019. I’m lucky that book 1 & 2 are already written when I got the contract for these books. So they’ll come out pretty fast.

McMillian Passion series will be 5 books, the first one should be out around Aug/Sept of this year. This one will take a little bit longer to publish as of right now only book 1 is done.

I hope everyone is having a fantastic month and enjoying yourself.

Marie

Citizen Soldier Series
WYNE AND DINE
Book 1/Ben

Blurb

Lea Gablonski has two dreams: To work at a museum in NYC, and to gain other-than-sisterly attention from her best friend’s brother. So far, she’s 0 for 0. Though her MA in History is just a wall decoration at her family’s diner where she’s working while her dad recovers from surgery, she enjoys her visual encounters with the sexiest man alive—even though he would sooner pat her on the head than take her to bed.

Military born and bred, Battalion Supply Sergeant Benjamin Wyne thrives on order and control in his fulltime career in the PA National Guard, and in his personal life.
