Thursday, June 6th, 2019
 


Through a crazy twist of fate, Caroline Clemmons
was not born on a Texas ranch. To compensate for this illogical error, she
writes about handsome cowboys, feisty ranch women, and scheming villains in a
tiny office her family calls her pink cave. She and her Hero live in North
Central Texas cowboy country where they ride herd on their three rescued indoor
cats as well as providing nourishment outdoors for squirrels, birds, four feral
cats, a fox, a raccoon, and two possums. 


The books she creates in her pink cave have made her an Amazon bestselling
author and won several awards. She writes sweet to sensual romances about the
West, both historical and contemporary as well as time travel and mystery. Her
series include the Kincaids, McClintocks, Stone Mountain Texas, Bride Brigade,
Texas Time Travel, Texas Caprock Tales, Pearson Grove, and Loving A Rancher as
well as numerous single titles and contributions to multi-author sets. When
she’s not writing, she loves spending time with her family, reading her friends’
books, lunching with friends, browsing antique malls, checking Facebook, and
taking the occasional nap.

A destitute widow; a reformed con man;
the danger that links them…
 
Betsie Galloway Hirsch has escaped
Memphis with her son. Her gambling husband tricked the wrong people and they’re
demanding Betsie pay his debts—or else. She’s come to Kincaid Springs to stay
with her mother and seek a safe place for her son. Being so far from her former
home, she feels secure. That is, until danger confronts her.
 
After 34 years alone, Michael “Monk”
Magonagle is falling in love with Betsie and is fond of her son. Monk is
certain she is not free of the men her late husband cheated. Although he is not
a violent man by nature, Monk is willing to fight for Betsie’s safety. He and
the men of the Kincaid family prepare to meet the enemy.
How can Betsie and Liam be protected
from the approaching danger? Will she and Monk be able to forge a love that
endures or will one of them be silenced forever? What toll will the enemy exact?

Snippet:
They were at the Kincaid front
door. She hated their time together was over.
Monk put his hands on her
shoulders. “Betsie, may I kiss you goodnight?”
Inside she was yelling yes!, but
she pretended to be demure. She certainly didn’t want him to think she was a
hoyden. “I think that would be all right.”
He removed his hat and pulled her
into an embrace. She’d thought he meant a kiss on the cheek, but that wasn’t
the case. His lips sought hers softly at first, then as if he would consume
her. Without conscious thought her arms went around him, pulling him closer.
When he broke the kiss, it was as
if she’d been deprived of a part of herself. Each of them panted with ragged
breaths. He held her a few minutes longer, his forehead against hers.
“I apologize for getting carried
away.”
“Please don’t. I was hanging on to
you as if I was drowning and you were a life preserver.”
He brushed an errant curl from her
face. “Then you’re not sorry?”
“Not a bit. I have to admit I was
carried away, too. Perhaps it’s not proper to admit, but I enjoyed your
kisses.”
Her admission brought a wide smile
to his face. “Goodnight, Betsie. I’ll be by to escort you to Mass in the
morning. I hope I may call again soon.”

When a dot com billionaire crashes his sports car into a tree, he wakes up in heaven facing angels Gabriel and Michael. He’s given a chance to redeem his carefree ways by helping an orphanage avoid foreclosure and regain a sound financial picture by midnight on Christmas Eve—or else. To do so, he is sent back to earth as orphanage janitor, Jacob Porter.
 

 

After her father died four months ago, child psychologist Suzi Stephens was shocked to learn Serenity Springs Children’s Home and Elementary School faced foreclosure unless she met a balloon note due January 1. She can’t understand why her late father broke the trust her grandfather had carefully constructed to protect the private home. She is afraid the annual gala won’t raise enough money to pay the note much less the needed year’s operating funds. Trying to do her job plus step into her late father’s shoes has stretched her to her limits.
 
She’s suspicious of the handsome new janitor, who appears more like he’d be at home as a CEO. Could he be a spy for the developer who covets the children’s home property? Suzi overcomes her distrust enough to allow Jacob’s help raising funds. Working together, their attraction escalates but Jacob has nothing to offer the beautiful redhead. He is scheduled for earthly removal at midnight on December 24. 

 

Snippet:
Over
the years, Jacob had forgotten how frightened he and Mike had been as kids.
He’d pushed those recollections to the back of his mind in favor of successes.
Being around the children here rekindled memories of that time. Their worst
fear had been being separated.
Their company—the
one he founded—had been a struggle at first but then had taken off. Within
three years, they were multi-millionaires then billionaires. No one was more
surprised than Jacob. He’d been ultra-cautious for a few years, afraid
something would snatch success away from him.
One day, he’d
realized he had investments and backups and even if he lost half, he’d still be
wealthy. That’s when he’d begun to live the good life. More level-headed,
frequently Mike had cautioned him to limit his excesses.
Mike had said
they shouldn’t have planes, didn’t need as many cars, and one house each was
enough. He’d been right, of course. Here Jacob had none of those things. At
least he’d been there, done that, and had experienced the exhilaration success
inspired.
Now he had a
different challenge. He sure hoped he was up for this one. There was no failing
this time without dire repercussions.
