Blurb for Where There’s Smoke:

Lauren Stokes put a lid on her attraction toward her best friend Seth Escamilla years ago. She’d never be his type of woman, so why torture herself? When sexual awareness strikes during a friendly football game, she’s stunned. He’s guilty for injuring her and looks after her, but Lauren resorts to wisecracking to distance herself from him. Seth’s confused by the new emotions swamping him. This is Lauren, his best friend, someone he has fun with, not someone he has fun with! He doesn’t plan to settle down, and he won’t risk their friendship when they have no future. They resist the new attraction, and the efforts of their families to push them together. When a wedding loosens their inhibitions, keeping the new aspect of their relationship a secret is harder than they would have thought.

Bull by the Horns

Blurb for Bull by the Horns:

Lavender Prouty has always lived in the Texas town of Wayback . Everyone in her family fled , leaving her with her ailing grandmother. She’s so accustomed to denying herself , she doesn’t know how to react when a handsome cowboy flirts with her during a field trip to the fairgrounds.
Taylor Craig hasn’t always been a steer wrestler, but he doesn’t talk about his past. He's made enough money to buy a spread near Big Bend, and he loves the cowboy life. Rodeoing answers his need to wander.
When he meets Lavender, those needs shift. He likes how she treats her class, likes her humor, is intrigued by her shyness. Women are always throwing themselves at him , but now he'll do the chasing.
Taylor’s charm lowers Lavender’s defenses before a series of events, including her mother’s return and the revelation of his past, put her back on guard.

LOL - being a dog lover, I really can appreciate that dog picture. Too funny! Your books look really fascinating and I can't wait to read them. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win.

Hi Mary,

Both books sound great and I love the covers!

And I certainly can't leave without applauding the Jenson picture, either. hehe Yep, I'm a huge Supernatural fan!

Have a great day,

Great books, gorgeous book covers and impressive reviews. Nice meeting you Mary. I am glad I'm working my way down these blogs and smelling the roses. My sweet and spicy medical romance, BABIES IN THE BARGAIN,a sort of Grey's Anatomy, is coming in two weeks to TWRP.

Hi MJ,

I read WHERE THERE'S SMOKE and loved it! I'd love to win a download of your Wayback story. I'm sad to hear the Wayback rodeo will close soon. :( But there are some wonderful stories in there.
