Enjoy an excerpt from TEXAS MAIL ORDER BRIDE ...

Delta covered the space between them so quickly Bandit scurried for safer territory. She glared up into eyes that reminded her of a cold winter’s day. “I can’t believe this. You have a lot of gall, Mr. Thorne. The way I see it, you gave up your right to meddle in my affairs when you told me in no uncertain terms that you weren’t looking for a wife. Therefore, what I do is none of your concern. If I want to—”

“Do what?” Cooper brushed her cheek with a fingertip. “Women like you won’t throw your reputation to the wind. You want it all or nothing.”

She glared. “You’re awfully sure of yourself.”

“I know more than you think.” His words were soft. “I see the yearning for permanence in your eyes. Dear God, you’re a difficult woman to forget.”

Cooper tugged her against his lean body, lowered his head, and pressed his sensual lips firmly on hers. The long kiss held passion and promise and warmth. Delta’s breath got caught somewhere between the need for more and wishing she’d stayed in town, far away from men who indulged in contradictory behavior.

Her knees grew weak and she clutched the shirt covering his broad chest to keep from falling as the world tilted on its axis.

As the kiss deepened, their breaths mingled in a heated flurry while blood pounded in her ears. She heard a low moan and realized it came from her. Strange how it sounded so very far away.

Her stomach whirled and dipped as though she’d fallen from a great height. Tingles raced up her spine in some kind of mindless confusion. The anger that had propelled her into dangerous territory melted away and left a strange desire in its wake. Before she could unclench her hands from his shirt to take a step back, he released her.

The kiss ended suddenly, leaving her wanting more.

Cooper’s sinful half smile turned her knees to jelly. “And that, Miss Delta, is how we do things here in Texas.”

  2. Hi Danielle! I'm glad you came by. I'm crossing my fingers for you. This book was so much fun to write. The minute Cooper Thorne strolled onto the page in that loose-hipped way he walks and flashed that sinful smile, I knew he was going to be something special. I fell in love with him and I know you will too.

  3. I'm so happy to be here on SOS Aloha! Thank you for having me. I'm so excited about this book and want to share it with everyone. The theme of home and family is one that is close to my heart. It's a story of learning to trust again and finding that one place in all the world where you truly belong. Cooper Thorne and Delta Dandridge certainly have their work cut out for them. There are a lot of twists and turns in their journey to love and happiness. I hope this book brings a smile and maybe tugs at your heartstrings just a little.

    Blessings to all from Texas!
