IT'S IN HIS SONG (RED RIVER PROMO)

They’re both back in Red River for good, and the chemistry is stronger than ever. But will her secret tear them apart all over again?
Dylan McCoy is restless to take over Red River’s favorite watering hole—Cotton Eyed Joe’s—when his Uncle Joe retires. First, he’s got to prove he has what it takes to carry on Joe’s legacy. Finally able to put the painful scars from his days working in L.A.’s trendy music scene behind him, he sets out to host a weekend workshop for songwriters. He calls in a favor and lines up some of the biggest musicians in the biz to attend. Life is good. Until the business owners who occupy the commercial space next door threaten to ruin his establishment right before the rock star lineup of attendees are scheduled to blow into town.



Hailey Hicks left Red River six years ago with a secret. Now—as a seasoned hairstylist who’s made her own way in the world—she’s back in town to help her cousin expand her salon. Unfortunately, the renovations aren’t going as planned and draw fire from the saloon next door. When she comes face to face with her ex, Dylan McCoy, sparks fly. Can they mend the damage done because of how they parted ways? Or will her secret cause them both to get burned again?

New Release: Until We Sleep Our Last Sleep by Emily W. Skinner





Until We Sleep Our Last Sleep


The Diary of Emily Millikan Blair


Genre: Historical Women's Nonfiction


Blurb


Emily Millikan Blair was a descendant of North Carolina’s Millikan and Blair
families who have a history of saving patriots during the Revolutionary War and
supporting the abolitionist movement of the Civil War, though you wouldn’t know
it from this diary.
Instead, her devotion to her husband John Addison Blair, her Quaker church
Springfield Friends, New Garden Boarding School which later becomes Guilford
College and God figure most prominently.
As a whole, the diary feels like an anthropological look at Quaker womanhood,
but isn’t. Emily doesn’t cook or bake, wash, clean or raise her children as most
women in her community. She requires lots of help and she writes about it as a
form of therapy.
The redundancies of her plain speak in 1889 evolve with modern times as we
enter 1920. She speaks of her daughters most often as Mrs. Dougan Moffitt,
Mrs. Arthur Lee Stilwell or later Mrs. J.W. Peace versus their given name. Her
sons are mentioned frequently by their full name Fred C. Blair and Jesse C.
Blair. As Emily matures, her children and grandchildren are mentioned in a
slightly less formal manner. However, it is evident that she is writing for future
readers. Providing an historical record of who she and her family are in their
community of Randolph County, N.C.
What is unsaid is the mystery we seek answers to. She doesn’t mention that she
and John A. Blair were courting during the Civil War, but the facts are evident
where she mentions being a student at New Garden Boarding School in 1864
and their marriage record in 1864. She also doesn’t provide details as to
whether she became disabled or was born such.
The diary is exact and unedited. These are her words, as she wrote them. She
was a farmer’s wife and though disabled, she gave birth to five children. She
writes honestly about her physical challenges and depression in plain Quaker
speak. She shares daily gratitude to God for each day she is permitted to live
and records deaths as a devotional practice.
Her message of daily self-encouragement and appreciation are timeless.


Index of 680 North Carolina Family and Friends Included
Instead, her devotion to her husband John Addison Blair, her Quaker church
Springfield Friends, New Garden Boarding School which later becomes Guilford
College and God figure most prominently.
As a whole, the diary feels like an anthropological look at Quaker womanhood,

Excerpt


7thmonth 17th 1889


When I reflect that another whole year of suffering has past, notwithstanding I am still unable to get about only in my wheel chair & have not been able to sit up an half a day at a time, in this length of time. Yet as I have been spared to keep my dear little family together whilst there has been many little ones left Motherless, my soul cries out again and again what shall I render unto my God for all his benefits to me.

7thmonth 18th 1889

Unto thee oh Lord do I lift up my soul, I thank Thee for even strength sufficient to use my pen. For there has been months at a time since my afflicted days, that I could not do this, no matter how great the desire to do so.

7thmonth 19th 1889

I desire to be thankful for all my blessings. This day I have enjoyed the company of my own dear aged Mother. For which I rejoice.

7thmonth 20th 1889

My mind has been deeply inpressed this morning by reading a letter printed in a Tract form, written by Elizabeth Webb to Anthony William Boehm. She sailed from Bristol to America in the 9th month of 1697 with her companion Mary Rogers.

Cover Reveal: Bossy Brothers: Jesse by JA Huss




Title: Bossy Brothers: Jesse
Series: Bossy Brothers #1
Author: JA Huss
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: JA Huss
Photo: Sara Eirew
Release Date: June 24, 2019



Blurb

Thirteen years before Emma Dumas bought me in a bachelor auction to teach me a lesson she stole my heart down on Key West. I fell so hard for this girl I made all the promises. Only with Emma, I really meant them.

And then I disappeared.

But it wasn’t my fault. Let’s just call my reason “Family Business”. I’d tell you what that business is, but then I’d have to kill you. Just kidding. I can’t tell you what my family business is because it’s so secret, even I don’t know.

My point is… I didn’t ghost. It was a weird twist of circumstances. And OK, yes. I did hook up with pretty much every girl on the island that week. But after I met Emma, I was ruined. She’s the only one I wanted.

It’s been thirteen years. I’m a changed man. I STILL want her. I have ALWAYS wanted her.

But it’s kind of hard to tell her that with a gag in my mouth and a hood over my head.

*****

Bossy Brothers: Jesse features a bachelor auction gone wrong, four smart ladies who botch a crazy revenge kidnapping, a fancy power dream date with fast cars, private jets, and expensive yachts, lots of ex-sex, and a happily ever after that proves… sometimes the best man for the job is a woman.







Excerpt

EMMA
“What are you doing?” I ask.
“What’s it look like?”
“It looks like you’re parking at a Tastee-Freez.”
“Nothing gets by you, does it, Emma?”
“Why are you taking me to a Tastee-Freez?”
“Usually people come here for ice cream.”
I just blink at him.
“You don’t like ice cream?”
“Everyone likes ice cream.”
“Exactly,” he says, grinning like a foolish, charming bastard. Which makes no sense at all, but wow. I’d forgotten about that smile and how disarming it is. He looks at me. “Come on,” he says. “It’s a date, right? You paid ten million dollars for this date and now you’re going to complain when I do something date-y?”
This wasn’t part of the plan. The plan was:
Buy him.
Drive up to his lake house.
Drug him.
Wait for the girls to show up.
Take him over to our lake house.
Tie him up.
Make him regret all his asshole decisions thirteen years ago.
Probably gloat too. Little bit of, “Look at me, so rich and powerful now. And you dumped me, you dumbass. But oh, hey. I’m too good for you now. You could’ve had all this and now you’ve got nothing. Sucks to be you.”
Which is all pretty childish because he’s Jesse Boston. He could get any girl he wants. Just look at how they fell all over him tonight at the auction.
Ten. Million. Fucking. Dollars.
I feel sick. Literally, I feel sick. It’s not that we can’t afford the ten mil. It’s just… that was not the plan. This asshole isn’t worth ten million. What the hell were all those women thinking?
And us. What the hell were we thinking? This is all Hannah’s fault. I’m gonna kill her later.
No revenge plan is worth ten million dollars.
And now he wants to have ice cream with me.
Uggggh.
“So?” Jesse says.
“Hmm?”
“Are we gonna get out of the car? Or are we going to sit here all night?”
“I’m not really in the mood for ice cream,” I say.
He grins at me again. Oh. God. Why is he so damn hot? It’s not fair. “See, that’s the best part about ice cream. You don’t have to be in the mood for it. In fact, eating it when you’re not in the mood is the best part. Because it puts you in the mood.”
And then he does one of those little eyebrow waggles.
I squint at him. “Are you coming on to me?”
“What?”
“Was that innuendo?”
He frowns. “What the fuck are you talking about?”
I point to his forehead. “You waggled at me when you said ice cream puts you in the mood.”
“I didn’t waggle at you.”
I huff. “Dude, you totally did.”
“OK, whatever. If you say I did, then I did. But no. It wasn’t innuendo. Ice cream is like… that’s just what people eat when they’re stressed, ya know?”
I just stare at him.
“God, for a woman who paid ten million dollars for me, you sure are a tough crowd.”
“I know how much I paid for you,” I snap. “Stop reminding me.”
“OK,” he says, holding up a hand. “Would you like me to take you home? Should we just… end this?”
I huff. “I paid ten million dollars for you. I’m getting my date.”
He stares at me. No. He glares at me. “Then get your fucking ass out of my car and order a motherfucking ice cream.”
And then he gets out, not even waiting for me. Just gets out, slams the door, and walks up to the Tastee-Freez and gets in line.
“Rude,” I mumble.
