Black Friday Blog Hop and lots of giveaways !!!



Welcome to the Black Friday Blog Hop with the Authors from Decadent Publishing!
 
I am very proud to be among these awesome authors with my new release...
 
Take Me Home, Cowboy
 



Ally Kincaid returns to Freewill, Wyoming, to see her father after a two year absence. Anticipating a quiet family reunion, she finds herself butting heads with her father’s foreman instead. The man’s arrogance and sexy drawl push all her buttons, making her wonder what he’s hiding beneath his cowboy swagger.

Matt Gentry walked away from the past and shies from the future. No ties means no one gets hurt…until the boss’s daughter, a hot, green-eyed blonde, tempts him to break his own rules.

When tragedy strikes, will building tension and pride destroy their growing attraction or show them the way home?

 

Excerpt:

“I need to buy that man an answering machine.” Furious, Ally held the receiver away from her ear, eyes closed as the phone on the other end rang continuously. “Come on, Daddy, where are you?”
She was ready to hang up in frustration when the receiver was picked up and then—by the sound of the loud clanging on the other end—dropped.
“Circle K,” said the deep male voice rather breathlessly.
“Where in the world were you?”
“Excuse me?” the husky voice asked.
Oh crap, that’s definitely not Daddy. She’d been so surprised her call had finally been answered, she hadn’t realized there was nothing familiar about the voice at the end of the line “I’m sorry….” she cracked. Wow, where did that high-pitched squeak come from? “I’m sorry, who is this?”
“This is the Circle K Ranch. Who’s this?”
The man’s question held an impressive sexy drawl. Definitely not a voice she’d ever heard in New York City, and one she’d only be lucky enough to find in her dreams.
“I’d like to speak to Jesse Kincaid, please.” She did a mental inventory of all the ranch hands but couldn’t place the voice. And he obviously didn’t recognize hers either. Must be somebody new her father had hired since the last time she’d been there.
“Sorry, ma’am, he’s not here. What can I do for ya?”
“When will he be available, please?”
“Now, ma’am, I don’t guess I’m at liberty to say until I know exactly who it is I’m speaking at.”
God, men could be so arrogant. Why did he need to know who was calling? A simple answer would suffice.
“Not that it’s any of your business, but this is Ally Kincaid. Who exactly are you?”
“Well, well, isn’t this a nice surprise? Miss Ally Kincaid. Did your father know you’d be calling?
She gritted her teeth in frustration. Who does this cocky, know-it-all cowboy think he is?

In honor...

of all those that have and are currently serving...

http://rcjrezine.com/?page_id=1257


I am participating (better late than never)  in the Veterans' Day Giveaway Hop hosted by RCJR eZine. 

Its an extreme pleasure to say that I know one or two that have been and are very active in our Armed Services and I'd like to share a little about them.

My nephew...

Travis Gaskill United Sates Air Force since 2003, SSgt C-130 Crew Chief ( Acft Maintainer/Mechanic) stationed at Little Rock AFB " Worlds Largest C130 Base"

"I am a Dedicated Crew Chief.  I have my own C-130 assigned to me.  I maintain and do all required maintenance on that aircraft as well as 9 others valued at $700 million.  I also supervise 5 crew chiefs directly and about 10 others on a daily basis.  I train/qualify my unit on C-130 ground handling and various CUT certifications.  I monitor upgrade training and also insure data integrity accuracy in all acft forms and various computer programs used to store acft data."


My step-dad...


"My name is Harry Zink and I joined the U.S. Navy in February of 1962.  After boot camp at Great Lakes Naval Station I attended Radioman Communications School in Bainbridge Maryland.

When the Cuban crisis happened, I was pulled out of school early and was scheduled to go aboard ship.  The crisis ended very quickly so rather than go aboard ship, I spent a year in Washington D.C. working in communications.  After Washington I was sent to Adak Alaska, a part of the Aleutian Islands, for 1 year. 

My job was to monitor any activity happening in the Bering Sea.  From Alaska I was assigned to Commander Amphibious Squadron Seven, aboard the troop transport ship USS Bayfield APA 33.  Whiel aboard this ship I made two trips to Vietnam, delivering troops and supplies to the war zone.  We had the honor of deploying the first Korean Rock Marines to enter the Vietnam War.

I was discharged from the Navy in December 1966 and am very proud that I had the opportunity to serve my country."



I am very proud to say that he is now happily married to my mom and living a great retirement in Florida .



God bless the men and women of the armed services !!


I'd like to give away a copy of my novella Second Chances to one lucky commenter that can tell me about their favorite military hero.  Don't forget to leave your email address so I can contact you if you win.


If you could get a Second Chance...
 
When the love of Dana's life leaves without a word, she is forced to move on with her life.  Despite loving him, she believes she will never see him again but, little does she know, she's being set up for a night that will change her life forever.
 
Nicholas, A Navy man, did the only thing he could to save the woman he loved.  Driven by a secret, he disappeared and now returns, years later, with hope for love.  With one opportunity, will he be able to make things right, or is it just too late?  Will she deny any desire for Second Chances?


 



Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping !!
