Visiting the Black Elkhorn Lodge and Resort is Mia Evans’s last option. She’s bordering on a nervous breakdown. Everyone in her life she thought she could count on deserted her. And, to make matters worse, she has the foulest case of writer’s block in the history of the world. She figures getting herself out of the prison her apartment in Chicago has become will help jar her life and her writing out of the rut they are in. But she isn’t prepared for the surly, sexy cowboy – who looks like her every dark fantasy come alive – riding into her life on his trusty steed.

Cole Stewart only loved one woman in all his thirty-five years, until he lost her forever and swore he would never love another. Since then he’s had a revolving door with the subs at his lifestyle club Cuffs & Spurs, all with the unwritten rule that he doesn’t get involved or do relationships of any kind, period. That is, until Mia Evans, the burned-out, anxiety ridden author, needing to get away from her real life, nearly runs him over with her car. Seeing the haunted expression in her gaze and a body he craves, the Dom in him knows he must have her, must taste her and feel her writhing beneath him. But will he be willing to risk his heart for the untamed passion he finds in her arms?

Read an Excerpt

“I’ve got a bad feeling about this,” Mia whispered.

Peering at the craggy mountains, she shifted her vehicle into park and killed the engine. She gawked at the main building of the Black Elkhorn Lodge and Resort, although resort was a term she would use lightly. It was the furthest thing from a resort Mia had ever viewed. Not that she’d vacationed at a plethora of them in her lifetime but at the few she had visited, there had been pools with sexy bartenders ready to refill your beverage, not miles upon miles of untamed wilderness to behold and brave.

Whereas… this?

Mia was about as out of her element as a whale on dry land. What did she actually know about the great outdoors? Nothing. She wasn’t a survivalist or outdoor enthusiast. The closest she’d come in the last few years to the great outdoors was a walk in the park near her apartment. But here, slate gray spears of rock touched the vast blue sky, almost competing with one another in height and savage beauty. Mountain slopes were blanketed with dense forests of pine and evergreen. The mountains surrounded the resort property, which was nestled inside a lush valley with tall grass and rolling fields. The chestnut-colored log cabins were charming, with a rustic appeal, and blended with the land of rugged outdoors.

Mia was in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a breathtakingly beautiful land that filled her with hope and was absolutely terrifying—all at the same time. Fear of the unknown, of being lost, abandoned and alone in the wilderness hummed in her system, right in step with the inherent desire to explore the world around her. She understood she was in a panic-inducing conundrum.

Kind of like the rest of her life.

Aside from the mundane, like what’s for lunch, when will laundry get done and has the dog been fed, my brain runs non-stop, hopping from thought to thought like the hobos of old hopped from train to train.

I see snippets like “there are more bagpipe bands in the U.S. than Scotland” and a story idea starts percolating in the back of my mind. Why not have a heroine who’s mad for all things Scottish meet and fall for an American bagpiper? Steeling my spine, I shove aside the tingling sensation at the base of my skull—the last thing I need is another story idea—and I
concentrate on getting through the To Do list that prevents me from completingmy next story.

The To Do list today calls for promoting my upcoming release, Riding Rodeo, from The Wild Rose Press. Lovely title, yes? The story is a contemporary western ménage romance. What a mouthful.

Blurb:

The last person Amanda Goodson expected to walk into her bakery was Sean Cassidy, the bareback bronc rider who rode her hard one night and left without a good-bye the next day. Since then, she’d sworn off one-night stands and cowboys, but one look at the man she called Rodeo leaves her hankering for another ride. 

A nasty injury ended Sean’s career and left him with nothing but time to contemplate past sins, especially the most damning one…walking out on Amanda, the one woman he couldn’t forget. Eager to right the biggest mistake of his life, he finds Amanda–and learns he has competition. Never one to back down from a challenge, he offers to fulfill her darkest fantasy–taking two cowboys for a ride.

When the dust settles, will Sean’s plan to win Amanda’s trust backfire or will she risk her heart for one more shot at Riding Rodeo?

This story was supposed to be a sweet romance, but because my brain never stops processing all the information it receives—even while I’m trying to work on other things—it turned into one hot read. In this case, I stumbled across the submission call for the Cowboy Kink line and then there was no denying the demand to make the obstacle in the romance between Amanda and Sean another man.

As a writer, I have a love-hate relationship with submission calls. They inevitably do their job and inspire story ideas, but did I mention the last thing I need is another story idea? The last submission call I read resulted in not one, but two pitches, both of which got my editor’s attention. On top of those two stories, I have not one, but three other works in progress.  They’re in different genres: contemporary ménage, fantasy romance with lots of sexual tension but no sex and vampire erotic romance. I flip-flop between them depending on my mood.

If that’s not enough, I’m a huge Good Wife fan and every damn show finds me writing hot little story snippets involving sexy lawyers. *Sigh.*

So tell me, if you’re a writer, what gets your creative juices flowing, and if you’re a reader, will you follow authors across genres?
