Hotel Rodeo is a sassy, sexy new contemporary Western series set at a fictional Las Vegas Hotel and casino. The first two titles (Hell on Heels and Two to Wrangle) center around Ty Morgan, a former rodeo stock contractor and Monica Brandt, a New York investment banker. The third book in the series (Beauty and the Bull Rider) features Ty’s best friend, champion bull rider Zac McDaniel, and Ty’s ex-wife, Delaney McCall, a former Texas beauty queen. I think readers are really going to enjoy the naughty innuendo and spirited banter as well as the colorful characters.
Here’s just a sneak peek of what’s coming…
Excerpt: HELL ON HEELS (Hotel Rodeo #1) by VICTORIA VANE
Ty Morgan jammed the elevator button three times with his thumb, and then noticing he was alone, gave the steel door a solid kick with his boot. And then another just for good measure, curses flowing in a steady stream. He didn’t normally have such a short fuse, but he was so pissed he was seeing red. With Tom’s forced retirement, he knew there’d be changes, but this was just too damned much! The new boss was both clueless and color blind—to anything but red and black.
Sure the place wasn’t doing as well as expected, but all of Vegas was still feeling the pain of economic recession. These things didn’t fix themselves overnight. On top of that, the timing of everything had sucked, but with so much skin in the game, he and Tom would both lose their asses if they didn’t let it ride. Tom had understood that—even though he’d had the most at risk. But now Tom was out of the picture and his choice of replacement didn’t know her ass from a hole in the wall.
A dull throb had begun behind Monica’s eyes, no doubt a lingering side-effect of two weeks of sleepless nights camped outside the CCU at Desert Springs Medical Center. In desperation to ward off an imminent migraine, Monica snatched her Prada purse from the desk drawer and rummaged for an elusive bottle of Excedrin. She finally found the bottle and popped four, chasing them with the tepid dregs of a Starbucks triple espresso, not that she really needed the caffeine. She was already wired for a confrontation.
She flicked a glance at her diamond bezel Tag Aqua racer—her last birthday present to herself. The watch, the bag and even her Jimmy Choos, were all well-recognized power statements in New York, not that he’d know the difference. And he was now fifteen minutes late. She uncrossed her legs and then crossed them again, sounding her impatience in the staccato tap of a stiletto heel. Monica snatched up her phone, was about to hit redial and then threw it back down again.
She inhaled, counted to ten, and then exhaled with a huff of exasperation. Was this just some passive-aggressive strategy to unsettle her? Maybe. But then again, she was probably giving Ty Morgan way too much credit—the dumb cowboy probably didn’t know how to tell time.
