For my excerpt this week, I thought I’d change it up a bit and throw in a bit from one of my current WIP’s, Luke’s Destiny, book 2 in my Love Amongst the Pines series.  (Book 1 is Cole’s Redemption!)

Setup:

Once again we visit the small town of Whispering Pines, South Dakota, where love ain’t easy and a gal’s new husband can be found in the most unlikely places, like propped up on a hanging tree, or maybe robbing a bank…

Set in the 1880’s, this is the story of a luckless young woman who decides to find her husband via a ‘mail order groom’ add in the local newspaper.  Expecting a bank teller, what she gets is her very own outlaw, complete with a Pinkerton agent hot on his trail.  One problem?  He was attacked on the trail and after taking a terrible beating, he has no memory of his marriage contract or

his bank robbing.

The Excerpt: Chapter One

Just when he’d thought he’d gotten away, Luke heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. Whirling around, he saw the last person he’d expected. Shock warred with anger as he realized he would not get a clean get-away. After so many time wiggling out of harm’s way, he was going to be ended by a mistake. A stupid mistake at that.

“You think you’re gonna dance away all pretty and such? I know the real reason you joined the gang, Durant. You’re a gol-dammed lying no good son of a rattlesnake.”

 

Thanks lots for stopping by…

Happy Reading!
