Weekend Writing Warrior Blog Hop–Strong Arms to Hold Me (RO)


This week I’m joining in the Weekend Warrior Blog hop!  You can check them out at



My excerpt is from my book Strong Arms to Hold Me, available on Kindle.

~Set up~

Strong Arms To Hold Me is an historical western romance, set in Texas and Kansas. A former rebel soldier kills a fort commander and when he is brought back for justice, she offers to help him escape on one condition. If he’ll help her get pregnant. They spend only a few nights together, but their passion born out of desperation endures hardship and separation until they beat the odds and are able to rebuild their broken lives.


“I want you to give me a baby, Mr. Strong,” Callie held her breath.

The words tumbled from her mouth, as though someone else had spoken. A stunned silence settled between them like a phantom. She watched his face carefully. The wounds of the past few days were barely visible, but if she looked into his eyes, the pain was still there. As was the defeat and anguish of the war they’d both left behind. Holding her breath, Callie waited as the seconds grew into minutes, each seeming like an eternity.


Happy Reading!

  1. You’ve got to love progress, don’t you? It’d be much simpler nowadays, just a quick trip to the sperm bank. Not nearly as dramatic, though. 🙂

  2. I like the way you referenced the war and how it had affected them both…excellent snippet.
