This week I’m sharing a snippet from my upcoming release, Always Miss April (Hot Nights in St. Blaise book #4).

“It’s Sherriff,” he corrected. Pulling the flowers from behind his back, he thrust them at her. “You’ve been served.”

“Oh, my,” she said as she gathered the bouquet into her arms. “You brought me guilt flowers? What did you do?”

Tipping his hat back, he flashed a smile. “Impure thoughts.”

Always Miss April – Coming soon from Turquoise Morning Press

AlwaysMissApril

The tender feelings Sheriff Delavan Cormack has for his lifelong best friend, Marilyn Dumbrowski, are the worst kept secret in a tiny town where everyone knows everyone else’s business.

When Marilyn’s teenage son starts acting out, Del uses his badge and their friendship to force the marriage he has wanted for too damn long. What Del didn’t know was the cool, competent ER nurse and hardworking single mom has been keeping a secret that has her burning red hot day and night.

With everything he dreamed of having in the palm of his hand and so much more than he bargained for happening in the bedroom, Del is faced with figuring out exactly how far he’s willing and able to go when he discovers that the power of his love may not be enough to satisfy the woman he adores.
