More Than A Kiss #MFRWHooks

mfrw-book-hooks400No matter where you hide, or how far you run, the past will find you.

When Ryan arrived at Winter Creek, an old ghost town that’s being rebuilt, he never expected to meet a woman like Bri. The free-spirited, decade-younger woman makes his heart sing. But Ryan’s living a lie. Bri doesn’t even know his real name. He’s hiding his true self while she’s an open book.

Bri is half in love with the uptight, controlled accountant. But she’s finding it easier to figure out the name of a century-old killer than getting closer to this man. At one time they used to argue, but now they barely speak to each other. She shouldn’t miss fighting with the man, yet she does.

When Ryan finally tells Bri the truth about his past, it goes surprisingly well. Loving this woman is special and right, and completely fulfilling. But then his past once again comes up to haunt him, and now he needs to leave Winter Creek. He has to put things right with his past before he can move forward with his future.

Will Bri be willing to forgive him when he returns? Or has his stubbornness to go it alone made him lose her forever?

First Book #MFRWHooks

mfrw-book-hooks400

Because I’m in the final revision process of the last book of the Winter Creek series, here is the first.

For some people ghosts are everywhere…

When rebuilding an old ghost town, a few ghosts shouldn’t be a surprise. And for Jen Forgotten Memories_MediumFerguson, history professor and psychic, it’s par for the course. But ghosts aren’t her main worry.

After a disastrous affair, which has affected her job at the college, Jen promised her grandfather—the most important person in her life—that she would stay away from men until the end of the semester. That’s a promise she’s determined to keep, but when she meets rancher Adam Craine, it becomes a struggle. Adam’s sexy and flirty, and her psychic abilities are telling her that he might possess a very important quality the previous men in her life had been lacking…he can be trusted.

It’s a daily battle for Jen to keep her hands off of him, but she believes she can do it…until two of Winter Creek’s ghostly residents decide to up the stakes by possessing Jen and Adam’s bodies. How can Jen keep her promise with these two passionate spirits interfering?

And if all that’s not enough to deal with, now she’s having premonitions of danger which could lead to the destruction of Winter Creek.

Forgotten Memories #MFRWHooks

logo book hooksIt’s Book Hook Wednesday again. This time I’ve got a bit about the hero from the first book in my Winter Creek, Montana series with Beachwalk Press, Forgotten Memories. Hero and heroine will be meeting soon.

Here you go–

“It’s a herd of cattle, for crying out loud.”

“Please, Mr. Craine.” The younger man leaned toward him. “It will do you no good to get angry at us. Jack and I can’t make a decision without Jen’s input. Jack will call her, and she’ll be here soon. She’s only across the street from the bank.”

Jen, he thought. According to the sign hanging on the wall directly behind the younger man’s clean desk, Jennifer Ferguson was the history expert on the town’s original time period. Two other names joined with hers–William Longstreet, an accountant and Jack Phillips, a historical constructionist.

Adam could only imagine what this woman looked like. Probably an old crone who knows the history of town because she used to live in it, he thought with tight grin.

And, yes, he’s got it all wrong.

The blurb–

First Seven Paragraphs

This is the first seven paragraphs of my current project, The Marshall’s Lady. This is book four in my Winter Creek series with Beachwalk Press. I’m about half of the way finished with it. Be aware this is the first draft, unedited version. Research is still needed to find out the name of the assistant living facility, and to see if I ever gave her grandfather’s last name. It’s the heroine’s mother’s father, but I have it written as her father’s.

First Seven Paragraphs

She wanted to be anywhere but here.

As soon as Kimberley Ferguson walked out of the main building of the NAME OF ASSISTANT LIVING toward the line of apartments behind it, she sensed coming here today might be a mistake. Would her grandfather even remember her? Would he want to see her if he did? Forcing a breath into her empty lungs, she stopped near a bench and wrapped her unbuttoned coat around her. You need to leave, Kim, before Jen or Ed show up—or Dad. Her visiting would only confuse grandfather. He wasn’t well now.

“Ma’am, can I help you?”

The voice tore through her uneasiness, twisting her around and away from the bench. She spied a nurse standing near one of the apartment doorways. Dressed all in white with a stethoscope hanging around her neck and a clipboard in her hand, the woman studied her with suspicious eyes. “Are you alright?”

“Yes, I’m…fine.” Kim traveled her hands down her knee-length coat, wiping the dampness from them. She’d never been this nervous before, so unsure of her next move or word. She hated feeling this way. “I’m…visiting my…grandfather. Edward Ferguson.”

“Oh,” she said, eyes narrowing as if not believing her. “You’re one of Professor Ferguson’s granddaughters? I thought he only had the one, Jen.”

“I’m Kimberley,” she answered, not allowing the nurse’s attitude to upset her. Jen and Ed, as well as her father and her Aunt Mabel, were regular visitors to grandfather’s assistant living apartment. This was her first time. If she’d arrived with her aunt today, she wouldn’t need to go through this nurse’s interrogation. It would be easier on all concerned.

 

The heroine is the younger sister of Jen from the first book of the series, Forgotten Memories. The hero is one of the three working board members, Jack, who plays the Marshall and is an ex-cop.

#MFRWauthors No, I Have to Choose a Book Title

How do I choose a book title?mfrw2017-52-week-challenge-image-300x300

I have a hard time choosing the right title for my WIPs. Usually I start off with something like ‘Winter Creek series, Book Four’ or ‘Bri’s Story’. That way at least I have a title–kind of. Then usually some words I’d just typed in the story comes alive to me and I use those for a title. And other times I used the jobs of the heroine or hero. For instance, The Dressmaker’s Dilemma and Trusting the Cowboy.

What upsets me is when I find a title I like on another book already published, so I feel like I need to change it. For instance, I changed the title of one finished, still unpublished story three times until I found the perfect title for it. First it was called ‘Finding the Right One’ which changed to ‘Listening to Her Heart’ and then finally, “A Second Chance in Panama’. Wonderful. Then I checked on a publishers website and found a recently published book with same title except for the last word. Growl.

Unfortunately finding a good title for one of the books I’m writing is the hardest thing for me. Sometimes the book is completely written and I still don’t have a title for it.

Wish it was easier.
