MONTANA D-FORCE
A Brotherhood Protector Novel
Elle James

Tidbit: Did you know my mother was born in Montana? I have family who still live in that beautiful state, and I love to visit.  I spent the first five years of my life at Glasgow Air Force Base in eastern Montana while my father was in the US Air Force.

Former D-FORCE and troubled LA screenwriter struggle against their burgeoning desire while trying to stay alive in the crosshairs of a murderous rapist.

Medically discharged from the army, Tate “Bear” Parker, former Delta-Force soldier, now works for Brotherhood Protectors as a bodyguard. Gruff but outgoing, his in-your-face cheerful exterior hides wounds invisible from the outside. He hopes to keep those scars undercover and get on with his life and his job, with no one the wiser.

Mia Chastain grew up in Eagle Rock, Montana. Now a successful screenwriter, she’s hit a brick wall writing a movie script about a young woman struggling to come to grips with her life in the aftermath of a brutal attack. Mia returns to her hometown to face her own demons and write the script she knows she must. A secret she’s kept buried for a very long time makes her fearful of facing her homecoming alone. When her old school friend suggests she hire a bodyguard, she jumps on the idea, determined to stay the course, with the help of a strong, ruggedly handsome guardian.

In the performance of his protective service, the damaged soldier falls under the spell of the shy screenwriter. They forge an unlikely bond in an effort to keep her safe as the secrets of her past come back to haunt her and threaten to destroy the life she’s built.

One Rodeo Season + Giveaway from Sarah M. Anderson

Hi everyone! Happy May and, if you celebrate it, Happy Mother’s Day! We celebrate web-color--2Mother’s Day here by gardening. And since life has been a tad crazy here (I’ve been sick for a week!) the weeding will be epic. But as a consolation prize, I’ll get a lovely hanging basket! Pretty!

Last month’s winner is Jennifer Mc! Yah! Jennifer, you won a copy of RITA® Finalist The Nanny Plan! Email me at web-color-message@sarahmanderson.com to claim your prize!

A lot’s been happening here. I got new author photos! A Cowgirl one and what I think of as the Newslady one–what do you think?

On Twitter, a friend of mine reminded me of the Worst Wedding Present Ever–a Cursed Lobster Plate. I compiled all the tweets about it in a Storify here–I hope you check it out and laugh along with me!

Now, back to the books! I have *yet another* new book out this month–One Rodeo Season! I absolutely LOVE this book–it turned out SO well! Here’s the blurb:

When his past collides with her present, only true love can survive the wild ride… One Rodeo Season FINAL

Bullfighter Ian Tall Chief is determined to get off the reservation and onto the pro circuit. After a wild youth, and some big mistakes, he’s found his focus. The only person who can break his concentration? Lacy Evans, owner of the Straight Arrow Ranch.

But the beautiful cowgirl is dealing with problems of her own. She’s running the ranch alone, after her parents’ deaths. The macho rodeo world is not ready for a female stock contractor. And she’s discovered her parents were keeping secrets from her—ones that rock the very foundation of her identity. Can she trust Ian to be the good man he claims to be?

And because I always save the best excerpt for you (HOT STUFF!!) here’s an excerpt!

“I want—”

“You want,” he said fiercely in her ear, “exactly what I’m going to give you, don’t you?” And he finally, finally allowed himself to cup one of her breasts in his hand—the left one, so he wouldn’t risk hitting her busted rib. “You want me to touch you, don’t you?”

Oh, yeah—she wasn’t wearing a bra. He pinched her nipple through the layered shirt. She gasped and squirmed, driving her ass against his dick.

“Here,” he said, letting go of her long enough to pull the dusty blanket up over the both of them. The odds of someone walking by at this time of the morning and seeing them in the dim light were laughably slim, but he wasn’t leaving a thing to chance. She’d given him permission, and by God, he was going to make the most of it.

Once he had the blanket tucked around her shoulders, he slipped his hand under her shirt and cupped her breast again. Heaven help him, her nipple was already hard.

He could make it harder. He rolled her nipple between his finger and his thumb and was instantly rewarded when she arched her back, thrusting her breast up into his hand. “Oh yes,” she moaned in a high-pitched voice. “Oh, Ian…”

“You feel so good in my hands,” he growled in her ear. Then he wrapped his lips around her lobe and sucked lightly, still tweaking her nipple as he did so. “Do you want me to touch you? Touch your clit?”

“You—you promised you would,” she said in short, hot gasps. “You promised.”

“I keep my promises, Lacy.” He kept stroking her breast with his left hand while he let his right hand drift down over her gently rounded stomach, down over the front of her jeans. She tensed as he plunged his fingers between her thighs, skimming over the seam of her jeans. “You like that, don’t you?”

She nodded. The disadvantage of this particular position was that he couldn’t see her face—and couldn’t kiss her while he was working on her body. He used his chin to push her hair to one side so he could at least press his lips to her neck. She made a high whimpering sound when his teeth nipped at her skin. “If we were back in the hotel room,” he whispered before he let his teeth work over her again, “I’d strip these jeans off of you and do this to your clit.”

“Oh,” she managed to say as he bit down with a little more force. He pulled at her nipple and stroked at the seam in her jeans.

“You like to hear what I’m doing to you, don’t you?” Even though it was buried underneath several layers of stiff denim and her panties, he could feel her warmth building under his touch. “I could get you off like this, couldn’t I? Just light little touches, rubbing right here, right…here…”

He pressed his finger against her and she bucked in his arms. “Oh, yes, oh, please,” she said, her voice high and tight and so hungry for more that it sent his temperature spiking. The world outside the cab fell away until all that remained was Lacy and Ian and the way he touched her.

“But you need more, don’t you, you beautiful thing? You need me right against you, don’t you?” Gently, he switched to her other breast, careful to focus only on the nipple, not on the underside. The last damned thing he wanted to do right now was hit her ribs and have the pain pull her out of the moment.

“Ian,” she gasped and he heard the frustration in her voice.

“Undo your jeans for me,” he ordered, lifting both his hands away from her body. “But don’t push them down.”

“But how—”

How were they going to have sex? “This isn’t about me,” he told her, stroking his hands down her thighs and back up over her hips. “Now undo your jeans or else.”

He felt her shoulders tighten. “Or else what?”

“Or else I won’t let you come,” he promised her. “I’ll work you up into such a state that you’ll do anything for the release, anything I want you to, and I won’t let you.”

WHEW! Let me tell you, it only gets hotter. Ian and Lacy have some of the best chemistry!

And next month, I’ll be back with more info on the third book in the Rodeo Dreamers series–Crushing on the Cowboy!

Award-winning Western author Sarah M. Anderson proves love needs no words in this sexy male/male novella about two rodeo cowboys facing their future once the rodeo ends

As The Heartbreak Kid, Mitch Jenner is known as the biggest womanizer of all the rodeo cowboys—but it’s just an act to keep himself safe. In fact, Mitch is so afraid of coming out that he’s opted to stay single—and a virgin. He’s fine with being alone…until he meets CrushingotCowboyHiResFinal.jpgthe mysterious Paulo.

Paulo Bernardes is here to learn the American style of bull riding well enough to teach it back home in Brazil. A namorado—a boyfriend—will distract him from his goal, but he’s captivated by Mitch, who understands him even when they don’t speak the same language. In return, Paulo wants Mitch to accept himself—and their relationship.

In private, Mitch yields to his attraction to Paulo and is rewarded with a heat and tenderness he comes to crave. But he still fears exposing their relationship. And as they grow closer, Paolo wonders how he’ll live without Mitch once their time together is up—how he’ll pick up the pieces of his heart when it’s time to say goodbye.

I’m so excited about Crushing on the Cowboy that I’m going to give away one ebook to a lucky commenter who tells me, What’s the worst wedding present you ever got! Happy Spring, everyone!

Her Bucking Bronc hits the shelves by Beth Williamson

Hey y’all, Beth Williamson here!

I’m super excited to announce the release of HER BUCKING BRONC, book 2 in the Devils on Horseback Millennium series. For a change of pace, this is a contemporary western novella, the descendants of my beloved devils.

Book 1 is HIS FIREFLY COWGIRL, and now we have book 2, HER BUCKING BRONC. This is Hannah Graham’s story and she is a strong, kick-ass woman who needs someone to break her out of the walls she’s built up around herself. In walks a contractor, Dylan Bennett, who is also a hard-ass and no nonsense guy.

Sparks will fly, smexy times will happen, and love, as always, finds a way.❤

Her Bucking Bronc

***

Love doesn’t knock at the door. It breaks it down.

Itching to vent two years of repressed anger and grief, Hannah Blackwood is jonesing for a fight. Luckily, some idiot has wandered into the charred remains of her restaurant, just begging to give her and her .380 a little target practice. When he turns around, her body burns with a dizzying reaction she hasn’t felt since she lost her fiancé. Hannah’s rugged, good-looking intruder is the man her brother hired to help her rebuild.

Part-time general contractor, part-time cowboy, full-time hard-ass, Dylan Bennett likes things done his way. The equally stubborn Hannah is a serious pain in the ass, but with a body that should be cordoned off with caution tape, she’s soon invading his fantasies. And becoming a very real wildfire in his arms.

Before long, they’re swimming in darkness born of their need. But to find their way to the light of love, they must let go of the anchors they once thought were lifelines.

Delilah Devlin: Cain’s Law releases May 6th!

Some of you may already have read this story–and for that, I thank you! Cain’s Law was part of the Cowboy Justice 12-Pack, which hit the USA Today list!

But for those of you who missed it, or simply need to be able to drool over that hot cover on your Kindle Fires, this story’s releasing on its own this Friday!

Cain’s Law is the third story in the Cowboys on the Edge series, a series set in Texas in a town on the rim of a large canyon… Hence, Cowboys on the Edge. In these stories, you’ll find a hint of danger and humor. And of course, those hot cowboys who really do know how to make a girl’s toes curl. Pre-order your copy now!
CainsLaw_600

When love is on the line, a cowboy will risk everything…

Texas Lawman, Cain Whitfield, has been burned before by a beautiful brunette with dark doe eyes. He won’t be fooled again. But fate has a rotten sense of humor when he discovers the latest stranger to arrive in his small Texas town is a former mob enforcer’s girlfriend—something he learns when the cabin she rented goes up in flames and her boyfriend tries to run them both off the road. Now, he’s got to keep her alive and under wraps long enough to arrest the bastard. Resisting his attraction to the drop-dead gorgeous brunette proves impossible when they’re forced to share a safe house while the sheriff and the other deputies double patrols to keep her safe.

Even though she knows they’re all wrong for each other, Carina Black can’t help her attraction for the proud lawman. She’s done with the glitz and glamour of her former life, but can she convince Cain to look beyond her past to trust she’s ready for life in a small town? As her former boyfriend closes in, she worries too that her poor judgment could bring harm to a decent man.

The longer they’re together, the hotter their passion burns…

The Countdown Begins: Pre-Order FALLING FOR FORESTER by Renee Vincent

“Fans of Vivian Arend and Cora Seton will love Renee Vincent…her sexy
Mavericks will steal your heart!”
USA Today bestselling author Shelly Thacker
Mavericks PromoRV HeadshotI’m super excited to announce that book 2, volume 3 of my Mavericks of Meeteetse Series, FALLING FOR FORESTER, is available now for pre-order with a release date of May 24th!

I know many of you have been looking forward to Cole & Crys’s story, and I’m sure some may have even been a little disappointed that it didn’t release in March like I’d hoped. I want to apologize wholeheartedly for that. As an author, I never want to disappoint my readers.

That said, I’m also a writer who cares more about quality work, and I’d rather put out a late-to-release 5-star romance novel than a crappy one just for the sake of meeting a deadline.

I want to thank you all for being so patient. I love my readers, and I’m most grateful for your continued support and understanding as I write the last two books in this series. I can’t wait to hear what you think, so please let me know!
FALLING FOR FORESTER: (Mavericks of Meeteetse Book 2: Cole & Crys)
Best friend and fellow cowboy cattle rancher Cole Forester likes things the way they are—quiet, no-frills, and uncomplicated. He’s a glorified bachelor with only a dog as his companion, totally content to live a solitary life next to the McKinley ranch. That is until a cute little barrel racer shows up looking for a job as a ranch hand.
Tomboy Crys Willingham hangs up her rodeo hat and heads to where her friend Ava Wallace lives, hoping to score a job that doesn’t involve the risk of broken bones every time she mounts up. Once she lays eyes on Cole, it’s her vulnerable heart that’s in danger of breaking.

Here’s a tidbit of COWBOY IS MINE:

“Baby, that outfit’s not just hot, but this is a forest fire and I’m a superhero fireman ready to lend a hand.” He’d never been close to creaming in his jeans before, but if he wasn’t careful, he might be embarrassed.

She slowly swiveled, giving him an eyeful of her legs encased in the fishnet stockings as she sashayed her way across the small space of his cabin. The heels clanked against the wooden planks and her bare bottom made him salivate. She leaned against his dresser, bending her right knee and planting her heel against her calf in a Marilyn Monroe exotic stance. Fuck if he wasn’t ready to drop to his knees and plead with her to put him out of his misery.

“Okay, fireman, what fire would you like to extinguish first?” She brought her finger to her lips. “Here?” She leisurely lowered her fingertips over her chin, down the length of her neck, and stopped at the tops of her breasts that were teasingly visible in the mesh. “Here?” She tapped one pale globe. The outfit looked perfectly snug, showing off her slender waist and voluptuous hips that he couldn’t wait to get his hands on. “Or here?” She parted her inner thighs ever so slightly.

“I hope you don’t have to give the outfit back to your friend because those stockings will be in shreds when I’m finished.” He strolled closer, stopping within several feet, keeping his distance intentionally because he wasn’t sure it was safe to touch her without exploding from the inside out.

Her laughter sounded like a sweet melody—teasing his bulging nerves. She slipped up onto the low dresser, crossing one leg over the other and lifting one knee high. The dresser should have been a hot rod classical car. She rubbed her toes up and down her calf, deliberately and erotically. His cock ached as it pressed against his zipper.

“Is there a proper time when I’m allowed to touch? I mean, I’m good with watching, but I can’t wait to get my hands on you, around you, and do sweet wonderful things to that body,” he growled.

My Bad

I’m so sorry.  I meant to go back and  pick a winner from last month and plum forgot until today’s blog post.

My bad, and because of that I picked two winners – mainly because I had a hard time choosing the winner.

Michelle and Leaanne – you are both winners.  I will email your Amazon gift card to you (you should have it today).

Thanks for all the wonderful captions – they were truly inspiring.

April has been a busy month for me.  I had a conference at the end of March until the 4th of April, then company right after I got home.  Conferences are fun but a lot of work too.

Then I went on a short vacation (3 days) just for me.  I needed to recharge my batteries.  It was fun and nice.

I’ve had my noise to the writing grindstone, I’m working on my Highland Dom (tentative title) for my publisher The Wild Rose Press, to be part of their Real Men Wear Kits series.  It is contemporary, my hero is from Scotland and he might just answer the question what do men wear beneath their kilts?

I will have a new book coming out next month.  It’s a short story that was put out in an anthology a couple of years ago.  I got the rights back, made some changes, and lengthened the story a little bit.

The book will be released by May 10th, if not before.  If you’re a member of my newsletter list you’ll get first notice.  So please sign up here if you want to.  No pressure.

Here’s the cover of the book:

perf5.000x8.000.indd

The cover artist: Designs by D, did a fantastic job.

I hope everyone has a great day.  And I’m really hoping to have some good news next month.

I’ll Never Look at Jam the Same by Paty Jager

I never thought about hMarshal FREEow people would react to my first published historical western romance. As I wrote the book and the characters carried the story forward, I was along for the ride. Darcy and Gil were clear in my mind. Their behaviors, their likes and dislikes. It never crossed my mind that one scene, I thought was playful, would garner so much attention. Mostly from my male readers.

I have a small following of male readers. One of them has also been a longtime friend of the family and is as old as my dad.  One day when my husband and I were visiting, he asked my husband if he’d read the “Jam scene” in my book.  (brief note: My husband doesn’t read any of my books) Hubby said, “No.” Our friend said, “I’ll never look at jam the same.”

This is the scene he was referring to. Darcy and Gil have just spent the night in a boarding house, telling the proprietor they are husband and wife when they haven’t exchanged vows yet. They’re on the run trying to catch up with a crooked mayor who has framed Darcy.

Excerpt from Marshal in Petticoats

“What did they leave us? I forgot how hungry I was.” Darcy sat up cross-legged on the bed. Her dark hair hung over her shoulder, curling around a breast. The flush on her cheeks and her swollen lips begged for more loving.

Gil’s heart squeezed at the sight of her. He’d never thought loving someone could fill a person with such pride and fierce loyalty.

He cleared his throat and continued to the bed. “Looks like cold beef, rolls, strawberry preserves.” He set the tray on the bed in front of her and sat on the opposite side.

Darcy took a piece of meat and bit into it. “Mmmm. Not bad.” The lines of worry furrowing her brow meant she thought of something other than another round in the bed.

“What do I say to Craven tomorrow?” Her worried eyes searched his face.

“Just sit by him and flirt a little. Ask him questions about himself. See if you can find out where he’s headed.” He took her hand. “I’ll be in the same car watching everything. I won’t let him touch you.” He kissed her hand. “I promise.”

“How will he not notice you?” She turned her hand entwining their fingers.

“I’ll be dressed in business clothes. He’s only seen me in my trail clothes. He won’t think a gunslinger would be all dandied up.” He smiled trying to make light of the situation. Craven was too self-centered to connect two well-dressed adults with either he or Darcy. But there was still the slight chance the man was brighter than he’d shown so far.

Darcy picked up a roll and smeared it with preserves. Gil shifted, bumping the cold tray into her legs. Darcy jumped, tossing the roll with preserves on Gil.

The look on her face as the roll slid down his chest told him she’d put tomorrow out of her thoughts. She giggled and covered her mouth. Gil arched his eyebrow and plucked the roll from his body.

Darcy leaned over the tray and ran her tongue up his chest, licking the preserves. He shoved the tray to the side, allowing her closer. Her small, soft tongue across his skin lit a bonfire in his belly. By the time she’d cleaned his chest, he was hard and hungry. Not for food. She lowered her head, giving his maleness the same attention she’d shown his torso.

This book is permanently free to help you start your journey with the Halsey Brothers Series.

Marshal in Petticoats

After accidentally shooting a bank robber, Darcy Duncan becomes marshal of a town as accident prone as herself.  And she’s not about to take orders from a corrupt mayor or a handsome drifter.

Gil Halsey discovers the new marshal is a passionate woman hell bent on proving the mayor is corrupt and dodging outlaws to clear her name.

**My Big News!!!** By Donna Michaels

**AND the WINNERS are…

tiss81

laurellasky

Please email me at donna_michaels@msn.com and I’ll get your $5 Amazon GCs out to you! Thanks to all who commented! I appreciate them!❤

****

Hi, it’s Donna Michaels, and I’m excited to finally be able to tell everyone I just signed a 3 book contract with Entangled Publishing for a military/cowboy series set in Texas!! Woot!!

Former Army Rangers own and operate a construction company that hires veterans!! They also own a ranch where the veterans are welcome to stay as they readjust to civilian life. This has been in the makings for well over a year, and I’m thrilled to finally be a part of the Entangled family!

This series will fall under their Lovestruck imprint.  

Entangled Lovestruck logo

Fall in love with the possibilities…

Find love where you least expect it with Lovestruck, Entangled’s smart new category romantic comedy imprint. Memorable, oftentimes hilarious “meet-cutes” between strangers, a strong romantic connection, sizzling sexual tension, and satisfying endings that leave readers smitten.

http://www.entangledpublishing.com/category/lovestruck/

Right now, I’m working on the first book, and yes, it’ll be my usual, hot, humorous, heartwarming read. 

In a Ranger’s Arms

Tentative Blurb:

Driven by guilt over the attempted suicide of a friend, former Army Ranger, Stone Mitchum swears off women until the construction company he opened with a few Ranger buddies to employ returning vets is running smooth. But when a hot, new tenant from his property in town literally falls into his arms, she tempts his self-imposed punishment.

Business major Jovy Larson is in a bind. Years ago, she made a deathbed promise to her father to pursue her dream, and running the family company has always been her goal. But when her retiring grandfather pits her against her cousin to determine his predecessor, she’s sent to the middle of cattle country Texas for four weeks to sell gluten-free, vegan food. Dealing with that near impossible task is tough, but not half as tough as dealing with her sexy, ornery landlord.

With the help of a lovesick cow, two local tofu geniuses, and a few well-meaning veterans, Stone and Jovy give into their attraction. But when her lease runs out, and trial run is over, will she remain in the Ranger’s arms?

*******

Part 2 of my news:

I have 2 books nominated in this year’s RONE Awards! Both, COWBOY PAYBACK and LOCKE AND LOAD are nominated in the Cops, Jocks and Cowboys category through InD’tale Magazine!

2016 Rone nominees

If you’ve read them and feel one (or both, you can vote for 2) deserve to move forward to the finals, then I’d truly appreciate if you’d save the link below to vote on

Thank you!!

http://www.indtale.com/2016-rone-awards-week-four

*******

My deadline is approaching fast, so I’d better get back to my writing cave.😉

**Giveaway**
In order to celebrate my double news, I’m giving away two $5 Amazon GCs! Perhaps you’ll try out some Lovestruck titles.😉 Two random commenters will be drawn tomorrow! Good luck!

As always, thanks for reading,
~Donna
