Christmas in Freewill

Christmas Eve, the Diamond Saloon is empty of its people, and Pearl la Monte has a hankering to retire early. A pounding at the Diamond’s door rids her of such a fool notion. Her irritation rises when she sees the prissy, polite-like Garrett standing outside.

Ethan Garrett has a powerful need to gain succor. When the saloon’s voluptuous redheaded singer scowls at him from the threshold of the Diamond, he doesn’t stop to think on how his ire at her has disappeared. Or how he just wants to spend some time in her company.

When a blizzard storms in, trapping them, will they spend their time arguing or find their irritation for each other disguises something more?
 


 
 

Final snippet from FOOL’S GOLD

Tomorrow’s the day! FOOL’S GOLD is released, and this is the last little snippet:

Ethan stared down at Pearl. Unaware of his perusal, she slept on, her face peaceful and her chest rising and falling gently. She’d pushed the bed covers down to her waist, a wide vee of her skin revealed by the half-opened chemise, trapped and pulled tight by her body. The cloth had fallen sometime in the night, and the light from the lamp hit the tinsel on her Christmas tree, throwing color and spangles over the creamy flesh. An insane urge rose within him, an urge to see if the colors would change the flavor of her.

Ignoring it, he looked at her, just looked. He’d had occasion to do so before, of course—her presence in the Spectaculars was nothing if not an invitation to stare—but he’d never seen her as she was now, utterly relaxed in sleep. Fiery red curls tumbled over the pillow—an improbable shade of red he’d always admired—and her brow was free of the frown she usually wore in his presence.

Lord above, the sight of her sleeping next to him was about the prettiest he’d ever seen.

Snippet no 3 from FOOL’S GOLD

So close to release! FOOL’S GOLD is coming (January 9, peeps) and here’s another snippet to celebrate:

Coming before her, he raised his hands to her shoulders. “I’m not saying any of this to be contrary, Miz Pearl. It’s just…I find you…interesting.”

She looked up at him. “Do you?”

The corner of his mouth lifted. “Yes, ma’am.”

Feeling stupidly shy, she lowered her gaze only to be confronted by his bare chest. His beautiful, broad, golden chest. His second half weren’t any more decent, modesty preserved only by the drawers he’d pulled up loose about his hips. Her mouth dried at the display of his beauty, and even more stupidly, a fire burned again in her cheeks.

“Are you blushing?”

The incredulity of his tone had her gaze snapped to his. “What? No.”

“You are blushing!” Delight lit his face. “Why? I can’t have anything you haven’t seen before.”

She scowled. How was it he had her blushing, and so easily besides? “Contrary to popular opinion, I’m not one to make a habit of inviting men to my bed.”

Another snippet from FOOL’S GOLD

It’s another snippet from FOOL’S GOLD! Gosh, the anticipating is mounting. I reckon a knife or some sort of cutting implement could sever it… 🙂

Exhaling, Ethan turned his Stetson again in his hands. Christ, was there ever a man more fool than him?

He turned his contemplation to her. Still she sat there all stern, determinedly not looking at him, like there was a point to such when, in truth, they were stuck in the saloon together until the blizzard saw fit to break. Might as well make such moments pleasant. “Miz Pearl, it seems to me we’ll be spending a good while together as the wind out there howls. Perhaps we could pass the time with kind words and conversation.”

The grip she had on her hands tightened, though her face lit with a flirty smile. “What could we talk of, Mr. Garrett? Would you like to know the best way to kick your petticoats so as to display your limbs all the way to the thigh?”

The image of her baring her legs in such a manner flashed though his mind. Heat rushed through him, tightening his skin. “Maybe we could start with something less titillating.”

“Less titillating? My, I don’t know if my mind is wired in such a way. Hell, what is a less titillating subject?”

Images of her naked legs still dancing about, he cleared his throat. “Perhaps the weather?”

Snippet from FOOL’S GOLD

The release date for FOOL’S GOLD is very, very near (January 9, peeps!) and to celebrate, here’s a little snippet:

A sudden chill took her, though Pearl knew the boiler to be working just fine. Wrapping her arms about herself, all she wanted was her bed. It might be mid-afternoon, but she could think of nothing better than winding herself in blankets and enjoying a whiskey while perusing the latest French catalogs Alice had sent her from Paris.

Determinedly, she started for the stairs. Just as she set foot to the first step, a pounding started at the Diamond’s doors, so hard they shook.

She whirled around, her heart in her throat. Christ almighty, but that was a fearsome sound. Loud enough to rattle her teeth, and forceful besides.

The pounding began again, the doors trembling under the strength of the knock.

Hell and tarnation. She couldn’t leave the poor soul out there to freeze.

Six Sentence Sunday – Fool’s Gold pt 2 #sixsunday

Six Sentence Sunday is here again! As always, a big thank you to the peeps behind this wonderful initiative, and to all the lovely people who comment on my sentences 😀

Just like last week, it’s another six from FOOL’S GOLD, second in the Diamond series. Pearl and Ethan continue their shenanigans from last time, with Ethan revealing something of why he pounded on the Diamond’s doors just as a blizzard’s about to roar into town.

“And I was your first choice, was I?” Pearl said.

A kind of blankness fell over Garrett, sudden-like. “I had nowhere else to go.”

Why should she be feeling a tug at her heart just because he had nowhere to go?

Squaring her shoulders, she lifted a brow and pretended her heart never twinged. “If it will get you to depart this here premises the quicker, why don’t you tell me all your troubles and we’ll see if we can’t fix one or two of them?”

Thanks for stopping by, peeps! Please keep coming back for updates on FOOL’S GOLD’s progress!
