Sojourn With A Stranger - #ghost #romance #bookblogger

Reviews
"Sojourn With A Stranger has a slightly gothic air with ghosts and witches of the tea-leaf reading, herbal-potion brewing kind. I loved how the paranormal aspects of the book were in keeping with the historical time period. The presence of bibles and laying-on-of-hands healing, the witchy midwife in the woods, the poltergeists of those wronged give the book that Gothic touch I so loved." D. Dunbar

"This ghostly historical captivates with its snappy dialogue, broody, mysterious leading man, and naïve but stubborn heroine. Add in sundry delightful secondary characters and a storyline that blends mystery, romance and the supernatural into a tightly woven, beautiful tapestry, and you have a sure-fire dynamite of a read." L. Jenkins Reviews

"This romance will have you reading from beginning to end. The author wrote descriptive and emotional scenes, making it difficult to stop reading. If you love steamy romances with a twist of paranormal, you’ll want to read Sojourn with a Stranger." Paranormal Muse Blog

Author Patti Sherry-Crews * New Release* #giveaway #western #romance

Please help me welcome Patti Sherry-Crews to Keta's Keep. She has a new release and I think you're going to love it. 


About Margarita and The Hired Gun

Pampered Margarita McIntosh is not used to being forced to do things she doesn’t want to do—but when her father, Jock, sends her away for her own safety, she has no choice. The long journey from Flagstaff to Durango tests her personal strength of will as never before, and the secret she carries in her saddlebag could be the death of her.
A rough Irish gunman, known to her only as “Rafferty”, is entrusted with getting her to her destination “safe and intact”—something he fully intends to do to claim the reward he’s been promised by Jock McIntosh. With a price on his head, the promised money is Rafferty’s ticket to a new life, and he’s not going to jeopardize that for anything—not even love.
But there are steamy nights and dangers all along the arduous trail for MARGARITA AND THE HIRED GUN, with deadly secrets between them that passion cannot erase. With her father’s enemies after her and the secret she conceals, will Rafferty’s protection be enough to save their lives? And will the heat of their passionate love be enough to seal their future together—if they do survive?


Excerpt:

“Rafferty,” said Homer, nodding his head in the direction of the man, who was now moving toward the stairs, eyes still on Margarita.

He walked slowly, swinging one long leg after another, a slight swagger in his shoulders. Unable to bear up under his direct gaze any longer, Margarita looked down at her coffee. Her ears were burning, and her throat was constricted in anticipation, but still, he moved down the stairs and across the room at an unnervingly slow pace.

 When he arrived on the scene, the women at the table stopped talking and looked expectantly at him. He didn’t register their presence as he walked past them—to their apparent disappointment. The men playing poker watched him with wary eyes. One of them touched the gun in his holster, nervously. The cowboys stopped talking and drew closer together.

Without a word or invitation, the tall man pulled out the chair across from Margarita. The gun sticking out of his waistband put a lump of fear in her stomach.

 He jerked his head in her direction, looking at Homer.

 “Why is she here?” he asked in a deep voice, speaking in the same slow pace as he walked. He had an Irish accent, she noted. Homer poured out a cup of the thick, dark liquid for him.

 “Rafferty. This is Margarita McIntosh, Jock’s daughter.”

“And she’s here for what reason?” he asked again, in a brusque tone.

 Margarita looked up, her face burning with indignation. She was met with quite a sight. The man across from her had a few days’ growth of black whiskers covering the lower part of his face. Jet-black hair stood in loose curls around his head in an uncombed mass. His hair was in need of a wash, strands clumping together with something she didn’t want to dwell on. It was hard to guess his age. Older than she, certainly, but she couldn’t discern much beyond that.

He was without a jacket or shirt, and his long john’s undershirt was pushed up at the elbows, showing long, muscular forearms. Worse, the top buttons of his shirt were unbuttoned, exposing the patch of black hair on his chest. The tight, sweat-stained garment showed every bulge and indent in his lean torso, including his nipples. He was as good as naked.

Margarita tried to hide her shock at this unseemly display. She’d never seen so much of a man’s body before, up close. His eyes bored into her. They were steely eyes the color of indigo set in bloodshot orbs. Her discomfort seemed to amuse him. He narrowed his eyes at her, and a smirk twisted his lips as he observed her watching him. Other than his lips and eyes, he was as still as if he’d been carved in stone. Very economical in his movements, Margarita thought.

“Well, here’s the thing. She’s the job. Jock wants his daughter delivered to his sister in Durango. He wants you to make sure she gets there. Safe—and intact,” Homer said, in a way which made her redden.

The man called Rafferty grinned rakishly, displaying surprisingly even, white teeth. “If it’s safety he after, there’s better ways to transport his precious cargo, I would think.”

“He wants her movements to go undetected.”

Rafferty leaned over the table. She could smell him now. He smelled like sour sweat, whiskey—and cheap perfume. There was some other odor Margarita couldn’t identify, but it was a smell, which repelled her.

Repelled her, yes, but she felt an odd measure of arousal at the same time. She raised her handkerchief to her nose to breathe through its lavender-scented folds. Catching her gesture, the dark man glowered at her briefly before the smirk returned to his lips.

New Release #western #romance * Three For The Win * #KU

TGIF (almost) and thanks so much for dropping by!

I'm excited to announce my latest release THREE FOR THE WIN, a Contemporary Western Romance available on #Kindle and #KU. This cowboy story is also part of the newly released anthology COME LOVE A COWBOY.

About Three For The Win (Yes, it's a love triangle, of sorts)



Eli
I’ve loved Hollis forever, it seems.
I meant to tell her so many times but always chickened out.
Then Stede rode into town on his big shiny motorcycle and saved my life.
Hollis fell hard for him. I get that, what’s not to love about Stede?
I watched and waited, hoped whatever they felt for one another would pass.
It didn’t, and now Stede’s hot head has landed him in trouble…again.

Hollis
I should have known better than to fall for a bone-melting man like Stede Marrow.
A man who hides everything about his past.
I know Stede loves me and I know he loves Eli too, like a brother.
Stede’s gone now and Eli’s here to pick up the pieces of my broken life.

Stede
I should have kept on riding after I saved Eli at the creek.
But then I saw Hollis and forgot about that road up ahead.
I wanted to tell her why I’m running and who I am.
But I haven’t even told Eli. It’s safer that way.
I said I’d never go back to that hick town, swore I’d forget about Hollis.
I didn’t bank on her being so damn unforgettable.

New Review by D. Bylo, Tome Tender Reviews - 5 Stars

Three for The Win by Keta Diablo
You know what they say about nice guys, that they always finish last? This time the nice guy got the prize, but not in the way he wanted. Hollis and Stede were an item, Eli was Stedes’ best buddy and had been friends with Hollis since childhood. When circumstances forced the mysterious Stede to enlist or go to prison, he left behind more than he knew and Eli stepped up to take care of Hollis, even though he knew her heart belonged to Stede. Two years later and Stede is back, trouble hot on his tail and he is bringing it straight to Hollis’s front door. Better grab some tissues for this one, Keta Diablo is pulling no punches with this one.
