First impressions can be deceiving by Paty Jager

Catch the Rain2Who doesn’t love a romance where opposites attract and each person makes the other stronger. That’s what you’ll find in Catch the Rain, a contemporary western novella that I recently received my rights to publish it everywhere.

The novella first came out in a Kindle Unlimited box set, Cowboy Six Pack.  But now if you aren’t a Kindle person, you can purchase it from any ebook vendor.

Here is the blurb and a short excerpt from Catch the Rain.

Catch the RainRunning from her past, Kitty Baxter catches a glimpse of her future—if she’s brave enough to believe in herself and the kind-hearted stranger who claims she deserves love.

Focused on setting up his new veterinarian practice, Zach MacDonald becomes sidetracked by a karaoke singing beauty with a secret. He sees what others do not and becomes determined to make Kitty see that anyone can learn to catch the rain.

Excerpt

He studied the woman. She had the notebook of songs on her table. Her intense gaze on the book and wrinkled forehead gave her an air of frustration.

“Who is she?” He sat and nodded to the woman.

“Kitty Baxter. She helps with the horses at Marcella Dunn’s stables.” Julie nodded to someone at the bar.

“She’s on the slow side,” Barry added.

Zach turned his attention to his brother-in-law. “What do you mean?”

“Cleaning stalls for Marcella is about the only thing besides singing that she seems capable of doing.”

He didn’t like the insinuation Barry was making about the woman.

The waitress returned with their drinks. Zach took a sip of his and watched the woman get more flustered as she flipped through the pages in the notebook.

The man on the stage didn’t seem to know anything about singing on key. “She a good singer?” He tipped his head toward Kitty.

“Yeah. Most of the people come here on Thursdays just to hear her sing.” Julie sipped her drink.

His mind made up, he walked over to the woman. “Mind if I share the notebook with you?”

Her head jerked up. The sight of her big violet eyes struck him like a jolt of electricity.

“I can’t find the song I want to sing,” she said, shoving the book across the table toward him.

“What song did you want? I’ll look for it while I look for the one I want to sing.” He sat down and studied the book to keep from staring at her pretty face.

Sunshine on my Shoulders.” She sighed after saying the tune.

“That’s one of my favorites.” He ran his finger down the page. “Here it is. Number fifty-seven.”

She picked up the glass of beer on the table and downed it. “Thank you.”

He smiled at the relief lighting her eyes. “If you can sing better than this guy, I’m glad to help.”

Her laughter was soft and husky. “Floyd thinks of himself as a rock star.” She watched as the tall stocky man tipped his head back and belted out an off-key long note.

“Since I was looking for the same song, do you mind if I sing it with you? It would spare the bar having to hear the song twice.” He scanned her heart-shaped face and noted a sprinkling of light freckles across her nose and the apples of her cheeks.

“Can you carry a tune?” she asked, tilting her head slightly and narrowing her eyes.

“I was in my college’s glee club.”

At the word college, he saw her physically shift away from him.

“How about it? May I join you?” He stood and waved her to the stage.

She stood, watching him with a trace of fear.

“I promise I won’t upstage you.”

A soft laugh filtered to him through the din of voices, shuffling chairs, and clinking glasses.

“Come on, Professor. Let’s sing.” She stood and walked over to the stage. Her hips swayed just enough to catch his gaze. She picked up both microphones sitting on the table by the man running the karaoke machine. “Number fifty-seven,” she said to the man and handed Zach one of the microphones.

Their fingers touched, and he could of swore he saw her jump as his blood pressure spiked.

“Woo, Zach!” Julie shouted.

He raised the microphone in a toast toward his sister and took a spot where he could see the monitor. It had been years since he’d heard or sang this song. As he positioned himself, Kitty stepped to the far side of the stage and waited.

The distance between them felt like an ocean.

The music started. He glanced over at Kitty. Her eyes closed and her mouth opened. A beautiful alto voice soared with the music. She sang with such feeling, he enjoyed watching her. He joined her at the chorus.

Her eyes popped open at the sound of his voice. Zach slowly walked over to where she stood. He gazed into her eyes and saw a confident woman as her voice melded with his and she took each note to a deeper nuance.

Kitty’s heart soared as she blended her voice with the man’s. He had a beautiful baritone. She stared into his eyes. The warmth and acceptance she saw in their depths started her belly quivering. She’d avoided men, except for two disastrous dates, ever since school and the bullies that had harassed her for being unable to read and having ratty clothes. She’d been an easy target. But she’d shown everyone. She’d run off at fourteen and found a place to live, and she enjoyed the work she did.

The glint of challenge in the man’s eyes had her embellishing more at the end. She held onto the note and finished with a flourish. The music stopped, and she peered into his eyes.

A roar of voices and thundering applause, reminded her she stood on a stage staring into a stranger’s eyes.

She ran off the stage, dropping the microphone on the table. On her way past her table, she snagged her jacket, before running out the back door of the Sidewinder. She didn’t catch her breath or stop her momentum until she sat behind the wheel of her 1960 Ford pickup. Her heart raced, not from her hurried departure, but from the memory of the man’s eyes.

He’s gone to college. He won’t want a woman who can’t read. Her good sense smacked her upside the head, and she shoved the key into the ignition. She knew how he’d treat her if he knew she hadn’t finished school. Just like all the foster parents and kids she’d lived with over the years. Like she was dim-witted.

The Men of At-Ease are Hot!

Hi, it’s Donna Michaels, and that’s what readers are saying about my Men of At-Ease Ranch Series. ☺

Book 2 just made the USA Today list!! (Thank you for making that happen!)

Book 3 is on Sale for .99¢!

Book 4 is up for Pre-order and releases in 2 weeks!

Here’s what TRR said about my upcoming release!

The Romance Review

Despite the fluffy title, ARMY RANGER WITH BENEFITS is a seriously romantic and feel-good read you shouldn’t miss!

How do I love thee…let me count the ways:

1. Vince is utterly gorgeous and easy-going. He’s maybe the first hero I’ve read who didn’t have to be growly and bad-tempered to maintain his sexiness. He’s so sweet and thoughtful, and (gasp!) he seems to be always smiling. Love the way he’s supportive of his brother Dom and rallies around him when he (Dom) needed him, even when said brother is being a grouchy bear.

2. Emma is just the right touch of funny and quirky and confused woman who’s torn between two guys, even as she’s haunted by her past. Totally love her, especially the scene where she’s drunk. Couldn’t believe the words that came out of her mouth, and yet, she’s truly adorable there.

3. Vince and Emma are hot together, and they have this easy chemistry between them that it’s not hard to imagine them falling for each other even as they fake their way through a relationship. They have got to be my favorite couple of 2018! I know it’s early in the year, but I don’t see them being dethroned any time soon. LOL

4. Fake dating is one of my favorite tropes, so I went into this with high expectations and I’m happy to report the author exceeded every one of them.

5. Seriously, I love this author’s voice. She makes reading this book effortless, totally sweeping me away and immersing me into the story. She imbues it with a magical vibe and creates such unforgettable and lovely characters that I couldn’t get enough of them even after I reached the end.

6. Also love the secondary characters–Emma’s super supportive mom, and funny, extrovert best friend Macy. I also love that Stephan is a regular good guy who now had to suffer from missed opportunities. There’s a lesson there somewhere, I think.

I will definitely be looking forward to Leo’s story and of course, I want to know what’s up with Dom and his doctor. *wink* I envision a great story there, one of the enemies-to-lovers kind and another of my favorite tropes. And I would be sorely disappointed if the next book didn’t include cameos of Vince and Emma. Just sayin’.

Haley Wagner’s life just got a lot more complicated. As if turning her struggling ranch around isn’t tough enough, she’s forced to call him for help. With his hard eyes and even harder body, Cord is an irritatingly sexy contradiction of hot and cold. How can she possibly hide her embarrassing secret when just looking at Cord is a combustible event?

Former Army Ranger Cord Brannigan has a secret, too. He promised his fallen teammate he’d protect the tempting, fiercely independent Haley from a distance, but now they’re stuck together for three weeks. Alone. Keeping his hands off will take every ounce of control he can muster. And that control is slipping…

Conversation hearts & Valentines SALES!

Sidda Lee Rain

I see so many people posting (via social media) that spring is finally coming-making itself known. And, all I can think is, WHAAAAAT? Here in Minnesota there have been no signs of warmer weather nor spring blooms. As I type there’s a slight snow falling outside the window and a weekly high of 12…far from spring like temps.

Spring may not be in the near future but Valentines Day certainly is! And, I may or may not be on my second bag of conversation hearts 😉 One of those candies from my childhood that I just somehow never outgrew, I guess.

I’ve been taking a break from most social media to focus on my writing. I’m hoping 2018 will bring a close to a few series that have been (not-so-patiently) awaiting their final reads. As well as bringing my readers some new characters. I may have started in western erotic romance, but I’ve spread my wings a bit more with every passing publication. It’s exciting–I’m excited! Though I’ll never abandon my western roots, I’m looking forward to other genres as well.

In celebration of the upcoming holiday I have a couple SALES on Valentines Day!

page-0-352

Lust, Leather and Love

(Can be read as a standalone or as #3 in the Casual Curves series)
Blurb:

Blaze…even her name is hot as hell.

Sometimes it takes a hard@ss woman to handle a garage full of men, hell, to handle me.
She’s been a godsend to my business but complete torture to my body.
I’m done watching her from afar-oh there’s no doubt Blaze runs the show.
That paired with a hilarious personality, curvy body that won’t quit and that don’t screw with me attitude? Has me fully torqued and revving…just waiting for her green light.
Sure, I may be her boss but there’s no question who’s the one in charge.

Link:   http://a.co/dSnjdj5

Also on SALE! HATE Sex…definitely not your mama’s romance. 

page-0-162

HATE Sex

(Please read warnings before reading-HATE Sex does have a HEA but it’s quite the trip getting there!)
Blurb:

I Skye Briar Blake am simply a girl trying to make her way in the world. Corny enough for ya? Well, it’s true though.

Working part time at a diner where most of the patrons are drunken frat boys with an unending appetite for chili cheese fries and the gift of quoting the worst pickup lines known to man and beast. But, at night I make my way to part time job numero dos at Pinkies. Yep, you guessed it…a strip club—rather a gentleman’s club featuring exotic dancers. Better? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

Serving drinks and stocking baskets of stale pretzels was never my life goal or anything but it pays better than the diner and I don’t come home reeking like deep-fried crap.

I’ve actually found a family at Pinkies and that’s something I’m severely lacking.

For the most part I can’t complain…that is I couldn’t until Jaden came into my life, insulted me about my weight, then, screwed me until I couldn’t see straight. Jerk.Makes no sense, right? Try being me.

As if on cue enter Rhett, panty-melting Rhett and he likes me, no, like really likes me.

With two men knocking on my door *heh-hum* so to speak I’m more confused than I’ve ever been and quite honestly I just don’t know what to believe anymore.

This is my story. The good, the bad and the downright wrong—it’s all me and I’ll have to live with the repercussions of my decisions and hope in the end I don’t HATE myself.

Warning: HATE Sex will tick you the f*ck off. Homicidal thoughts may cross your mind revolving around a certain arrogant s.o.b. And, by the middle of the book? You’ll want to dish out a bitchslap of epic proportions to my heroine. GOOD! Hand me a lollipop because all that means is that I succeeded in sucking you into this twisted vortex of sex, hate and possibly love whether you wanted to be sucked or not.

Check them out!

Naked Cowboys

Stark Naked

After Reenie bumps into her friend’s very sexy, very naked brother, she decides to keep her distance, but he shows up at her door the next morning asking she doesn’t let first impressions ruin what could be a whole lot of fun.

Matt quickly realizes none of his usual lines will work on Reenie, which only adds to his desire to get her to lower her defenses around him.

 

Buck Naked

When a cowboy stops to help Amy change a flat, she’s convinced her run of luck isn’t going to change any time soon. Buck is far too confident and cocky for her. Buck made his mark on the rodeo circuit, but the lifestyle left its on marks on him. He knows he should tell Amy about his past before she hears it elsewhere, but every time he opens his mouth, all he can do is kiss her…

 

Stripped Naked

Jinx thought moving from New York to Rowan Country would mean an end to reporting on murders and dealing with grumpy police who see her as a nuisance. After only a few weeks on the job, someone finds a dead body in a ditch, and Sheriff Dillon Cross is butting heads with the sexy local reporter. They get on like two angry hornets trapped in an upturned glass, but soon it’s more than heated barbs they’re exchanging.

 

Bare Naked

Georgie invests everything she owns in a dilapidated B&B in Saddle Wells, Texas, so when a rough-around-the-edges cowboy offers his handyman services, she accepts his help in exchange for room and board.

Cade’s a down-on-his-luck cowboy with a reputation so bad no one will hire him. Luckily for Cade, newcomer Georgie doesn’t know anything about the man he used to be. But not everyone is ready to give Cade a second chance, and their newfound happiness could disappear like smoke.

 

Naked Desire

All Cynthia has left after her divorce is her grandfather’s secret barbecue-spice-rub recipe. She’s determined to start over in Saddle Wells, but she’s totally unprepared for her reaction to the carpenter her new friends recommend.

Jesse is more than happy to renovate Cyn’s storefront, but what he’d really love to do is tackle that self-doubt he sees lurking in her eyes, but first he has to convince her to give them a chance despite their age difference.

 

Naked Flame

On a night out, former cop Charity notices the brooding bar owner needs help, so she steps in and ends up right in his arms.

After two tours in Afghanistan, Liam now runs his dad’s bar. Having Charity around is a distraction, but he can’t seem to deny whatever there is between them.

When a criminal comes looking for revenge, Charity knows it will be better for everyone if she leaves town, but leaving Liam is more difficult than she thought.

Naked Heat

Andrew “Mac” McDaniel is on a mission to find the drunk driver who killed his twin sister, and his latest lead has brought him to Saddle Wells. When realtor Nida hands over the keys, something sparks between them. But even as undeniable interest turns to hot nights together, Nida is not sure she can stand by and watch him destroy himself when his investigation sends him on a path toward a potentially disastrous act of revenge.

 

Naked Hunger

Raising livestock in Saddle Wells isn’t as exciting as the pro circuit for local rancher Ryan, but the sweet new vet in town certainly livens things up. Sable claims she has no time for a relationship, so Ryan suggests they have some friends-with-benefits fun while he convinces her she doesn’t have to choose between career and love. But when a costly mistake puts her career in jeopardy, Sable could lose everything.

Plum Creek returns

In case you hadn’t heard the news, my Plum Creek series is returning to bookshelves starting in February. This trilogy was originally published about 10 years ago and I got my rights back. Now I’m sharing them with everyone again!

The trilogy began with book 1, THE EDUCATION OF MADELINE. I wrote Madeline to be a tall, curvy, thirty-two year old spinster in Reconstruction era Colorado, 1872. She’s rich, hated because of her wealth, and needs to learn how to experience life.

The hero, Teague, is a big man with a dark past who enters Madeline’s life. She grabs hold of the opportunity with both hands and they begin an adventure together, with many twists, turns, and unseen dangers.

I loved Madeline – she embodied what I struggled with as a curvy woman with low self-confidence. She discovers she’s fierce, courageous, and unwilling to settle for what the world has planned for her.

I’m happy to say THE EDUCATION OF MADELINE releases on February 27 in both ebook and print. The cover is beautiful and I can’t for y’all to meet Madeline and Teague. Book 2, THE REDEMPTION OF MICAH, is coming on April 10 – more on that next time!

Lawman! Rhonda Lee Carver

WantedbytheLawemanImageFinal

To Serve. Protect. And desire.

Special Agent Zander Cade discovers his stunning neighbor and realizes she has a handful of secrets that could put him in a difficult situation. He has a job to do, but her beauty and spunk deter his every intention to abide the law. If his instincts are right, she’s a whole lot of trouble…and in danger.

Wynn Makelti has no other choice but to move into her grandmother’s neglected house, at least for the time being. Anything is better than going back to her ex whose criminal activity is catching up to him. The Wyoming scenery isn’t too bad, considering her neighbor has caught, and keeps, her attention. But can he be trusted? She believes he has a few secrets of his own and she makes it a priority to find out what he’s hiding behind his hat, beguiling smile and bad-boy tattoos.

Little by little the secrets begin to unravel and turmoil shows up on her doorstep. As safe as his embrace feels, can she stay and possibly put him at risk from someone from her past? If she leaves, she could lose everything she has come to love.

As risky as loving Wynn is, Zander can’t let her go, even if it puts his career on the line. It’s time she finds out what a real man has to offer and he’s the one to do it. Together they can face the danger closing in…unless she runs before he can prove that he can be trusted to protect her and love her.

Pre-order here!

Protectedythelawmanfinal

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.

The Writing Life

I hope everyone is having a great New Year.

I thought I’d share a little bit today about my writing life.

For about the last year, I’ve been concentrating on trying to get more books written to get more books out. I’m going to call it a 75% success rate.

I’m now writing for two small presses and trying to break into New York. My self-publishing has fallen to the side, because its hard to do everything. And I realized I can’t do everything.

But I have a cowboy book that was making the rounds everywhere, but wasn’t being sold. I finally took the book, gave it to an editor and copy editor and let them have at it. I’m happy to say Billionaire Cowboy’s Conquest looks to be released around the end of March.

I’ll have my cover in February and I’ll be happy share it with this group.

As for my two small presses, The Wild Rose Press and Trifecta Publishing house. I will have one book coming out with The Wild Rose Press later this year called Highland Dom Book 1 in the McMillan Passion series.

From Trifecta Publishing House in February 19th Master Cole releases (cover down below), in June: Her Desert Prince Book 1 in the Desert Destiny Series, and in December: Her Desert Doctor Book 2 in the Desert Destiny Series.

I am still trying to break into NY publishing, I have 3 chapters of a book with a NY publisher now, waiting to hear if they want the rest of the book.

In the line up for the rest of the year, I have to write book 2 in the McMillan Passion series, Book 3 & 4 in the Desert Destiny Series. And maybe just maybe I’ll be able to start another series that is 9 books long, it all depends on how the rest of the year goes.

Everyone have a great Valentine’s day.

Excerpt:

Risa stood waiting for instructions while Master J walked slowly around her. She could feel the impact of his gaze on her as he studied her from every angle.

“Before we begin, Clint gave me the specifics of your request,” he told her. “Look at me, Risa.” His voice was softer now.

She raised her eyes, questioning. “Yes, Master J?”

“Clint takes his requests very seriously. He wants to make sure that those he pairs together are a suitable match.” He brushed a stay strand of hair back from her face. “For what we are about to do, especially to take you to levels you’ve never reached before, there must be complete and absolute trust. I promise you that you have nothing to fear from me. That you can trust me only to satisfy your desires and to stretch your limits but not push you beyond them if it becomes too much for you. Do you understand?”

She nodded.

“Did Clint tell you what they call me, besides Master J?”

“No.” The word came out as a soft whisper. She swallowed and repeated it, louder. “No, Sir.”

“I’m known as the Night Wrangler. On a ranch, the wrangler is the one in charge of the horses and other livestock. Here, where I only play at night, I am in complete charge of the subs who come to me. Or who I choose for myself. Complete control.” He studied her with those intense eyes. “Can you accept that?”

“Yes, Sir.” She licked her bottom lip with her tongue, then decided to be a little bolder. “That’s exactly what I want.”

“Tell me exactly what it is you’re seeking tonight. I want to hear it from you.”

Risa swallowed. She forced herself to keep her gaze on him while she answered. “I have discovered that I want to explore greater levels of pain, to reach that point where the pain itself is a pleasure. To be helpless, except to do as you command me. To achieve the intense orgasms possible at that level. I—I’ve discovered that pain increases my pleasure, that it takes me to a place where things could be ever so much sweeter. And to please you because of that.”

His lips twitched as if he was holding back a smile. His gaze had softened, but there was still heat flaring in them. Risa’s breath caught as the heat of his gaze seared her, sending shivers skating over the surface of her skin. She’d only wanted this one night, but suddenly she wanted much more than that. From him. With him. And the intensity of her need frightened her. She’d spent her entire life being careful not to let her emotions rule her mind so how had this even happened?

Because she’d never met the Night Wrangler before. There was something so compelling, so intense, so demanding that she just wanted to fall into whatever it was he had planned and never come up. She could understand why he had the name.
