Excerpt

Prologue

 

Justice

The van is hot as hell. I’m watching the house across the street because I know he’s in there. The fucking dick!

I know for a fact he hasn’t left because I’ve been sitting here all fucking day.  It’s finally dark, and any time now the little shit is going to leave the house. Then he’s mine.

Cowboy’s with me, but he’s been quiet the whole time.  He’s still hurting over losing Cassie and I can’t blame him, it’s only been a few months.  Satan may be dead, but it doesn’t stop the guilt we all feel that we weren’t quick enough to save her, nor smart enough to work out what was going on under our own roof.

I straighten up in my seat as I see the hallway light go out. I nudge Cowboy awake, motioning towards the house.  It’s time.

I clench my fists as I watch Ted walk over to his car. The slimy piece of shit has been leading my sister on, no fucking way am I letting him off with that shit! My sister means everything to me. Ted is unlocking his car door, when my arm goes around his throat.  My approach as always is silent. Deadly.

“What? Who? You can’t do this to me.” He starts to protest, struggling in my arms.

“Shut the fuck up.  You’re going to walk over to that van, quiet as a mouse or I’ll start carving pieces of you off as we walk. Choice is yours.”  I whisper the words harshly in his ear.  As soon as he hears my voice he knows who I am.  What I am.  It’s enough to cause him to freeze in terror.  Cowboy groans in disgust. I tense as I realize what Ted’s done. Shit! The bloody coward’s gone and wet himself.  Not only is he a dick, he’s a fucking coward too.

“Please don’t kill me.” He whimpers. Yep. He’s a fucking pussy all right.

If I were him, I’d put up a fight. Stand my ground and be a man! Not whimper and beg. Men like him make me sick.

“I’m not going to kill you Ted.” I reassure him. Although it is really fucking tempting.  “That would be far too quick and painless.”  Ted whimpers some more so I tighten my hold around his neck. God I’d love to snap it! “I told you to be fucking quiet.” I command.

I practically have to drag Ted the few yards from his driveway to the van. Being careful not to let his piss stained trousers touch me.  Cowboy’s ready and waiting for me, the sliding door open.  He reaches into his back pocket, a move that causes Ted to start whimpering again.  What a fucking wimp.  What the fuck did my sister see in him? I’ll never understand it.

Cowboy withdraws some black cable ties from his pocket and uses them to secure Ted’s wrists behind him. He moves to his ankles, doing the same.

“For fuck’s sake Ted.” Cowboy complains. “You a little momma’s boy? You’ve gone and pissed yourself like one.” There’s disgust in Cowboy’s voice.

He pushes Ted face first into the back of the van.  Ted is hampered by the ties but manages to crawl a little further in, allowing me to slide the door shut. Not that I’d care if I trapped anything anyway!  Cowboy jumps in the passenger seat next to me and I start the van. Moving slowly at first with the headlights off, until I hit the end of the street.  The less any busybody neighbors see around here the better.

I only drive for a few minutes before I hit the trail road I’m looking for.  This abandoned shack is perfect for what I have planned for this evening.  It’s far enough from the town that no one will hear Ted scream. And I intend to make him scream, a lot.

Cowboy and I came here earlier to set up.  Everything we need is inside.  Cowboy drags Ted from the rear of the van none too carefully.  Because of the ties on his ankles he can’t walk.  Thanks to wetting himself Cowboy refuses to throw him over his shoulder and carry him. Instead, he grabs him by the wrist ties and drags him along the rough dirt path.  That must hurt, but to be fair, considering what I have planned for him, that’s nothing.

Ted’s eyes go wide when we enter the shack and he sees the chain hanging over the solid wooden beam.  Cowboy quickly secures him to it as I lean against the wall, listening to Ted’s whimpering. It’s really getting on my fucking nerves. Cowboy moves out of the way as soon as he’s done and I grin.  Ted’s hanging by his arms, his feet not quite able to touch the floor and take any of the weight.

I slowly walk up to him.  When I’m standing so close that we’re practically nose to nose Ted’s breathing quickens.  I’m taller than he is.  It’s just something else in the long list of things I don’t like about him.

I see the look of absolute fear in his eyes and it gets me hard. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not fucking gay but hurting people that I hate, that deserve it, gets me worked up and Ted really deserves it for what he has done to my sister!  My reputation precedes me.  Ted may think he knows what’s coming tonight. Trust me, he hasn’t a clue.  What he imagines and what I have planned are poles apart.

“You’re not going to die tonight Ted.” There’s a spark of hope in his eyes. A little hint of relief and I can’t allow that.  “You’re going to wish you were dead though. So much so, that you will beg me to kill you.”

Excerpt

Andrew laughed and shook his head. “When I met you, I never thought you would be so sexual. You seemed so … quiet.”

“Didn’t anyone ever tell you to watch out for the quiet ones?” I raised my eyebrows and winked, grabbing him spontaneously and pulling him close. I brought my lips to his and lightly parted them, waiting for him to lead.

Now that my second trimester kicked into gear, sex regained its appeal.

Effortlessly, he kissed me, our tongues wrapping around one another’s, awakening an eagerness that zapped me of any other thoughts. “I want to be the only toy you play with tonight.”

I pulled away and gave him a glance at the fire in my eyes. “You can do whatever you want with me.”

“Shhh.” His voice rose slightly as he gently lowered me on the soft blanket I hadn’t noticed. “Take your clothes off for me. I will be right back.”

I obliged, slowly undressing with careful finesse, leaving my lacy panties for him to remove. Naked under the stars, I allowed the mystical, cool breeze to relax me as my eyes fluttered shut.

I never heard him return. Suddenly, he lay beside me, using his firm hands to massage me with the skill of a professional. I bristled with pleasure as he caressed warm liquid over every square inch of my body.

“You’re so beautiful,” he murmured as I gently spread my legs, my muscles reduced to mush. Embracing the sensation of floating in a realm between a memory and a daydream, I relished his magical touch.

After sliding off my thong, he teased one finger over my sensitive spot, and I sighed at the promise of what came soon. Maybe six seconds and I was soaking wet, dying for him to enter me. His intent was sweet romance, but I wanted to grab his body and force him inside me and rock him until he couldn’t see straight. My sex drive now wild and untamed, my body pulsed with intensity unfamiliar to my experience.

I reached up to unbutton his shirt, exposing his sexy arms and chest. I slid his pants and boxers down and unleashed a seductive smile, my eyes lifting from his hardness to his heated eyes. Not much foreplay would be necessary.

I slid my tongue up and down the length of his shaft, amazed when he got even harder.

He started to position himself on top of me, but I placed one hand firmly on his chest and pushed him away. A flicker of confusion crossed his face, but then he grinned as I slyly turned over and rose on my hands and knees.

“You feel so tight,” he breathed as his body became one with mine. He squeezed my ass and let a soft moan escape with the first hard thrust.

He was the perfect fit. With every move he made, my body longed for more of him, grinding against him until I matched his pace. I wanted to slow down, to enjoy this fabulous sex underneath a ceiling of glistening stars, but I lost every ounce of self-control and thrust against him faster and faster until he exploded with pleasure.

“Damn!” He gazed into my eyes, his wild with ecstasy, as I smirked with satisfaction. “You’re an animal.”

I rolled over, collapsing on the blanket cushioned with soft grass. I guided his hand back to where he started, my mouth forming a long “O” within seconds. Feverishly, I grabbed his other hand and placed it on my breast. He took the cue and fondled each nipple until they were both pebbled.

Hold off, hold off… I could have come on command.

He rolled his finger in a circular motion, changing his rhythm to make me last longer. I thought I might fall unconscious if my legs got any weaker.

I couldn’t take it anymore. I came with such power that my whole body jerked. My eyes flew open just in time for my release to coincide with the surreal blend of the majestic stars and distant heavenly bodies as they faded into the night.

Andrew smiled and lay on his back, gazing into the celestial sky, lacing his fingers with mine. The breeze intensified, serving as the perfect cool down as we cuddled under the glistening stars.

This was perfection.

Author Bio

Laura Lexington is a Contemporary Women’s Fiction and Contemporary Romance author. Her debut novel contains elements of suspense and explores elements of every part of life – love, sex, friendship, careers, faith, social issues, and family. She lives in the Southern United States with her family, where she hates the humidity but loves being close to the beach. She is the proud mother of one daughter, a rambunctious five year old who chopped her glorious hair the first week of kindergarten, and is the most awesome wife ever (or so she likes to think). When she’s not daydreaming up future stories, she’s wearing out her Kindle, thinking about shaking the dust off her treadmill, or planning her next trip to Orange Beach.

Laura works full time, and unlike the main character in her debut novel, is thankful to work for a company that recognizes employee talent regardless of age, race, or gender, and provides many opportunities for development. She firmly believes in the power of a good housekeeper, a strong cup of coffee (or two or three), and a novel that makes one’s senses spin with all the good stuff – drama, love, suspense, sex. If dancing with her rambunctious five-year-old in the kitchen counts as working out, she exercises daily, usually after several desserts she couldn’t resist.

Author Bio

I live in Morgan Utah with my husband, daughter, and dog, Kolo. I write as often as my active daughter will let me and my husband has the patience of a saint. I find inspiration from dreams, people I meet, and life experiences. When I write, I usually end up drinking one too many cans of Peace Tea, eating three too many Fruit by the Foot fruit snacks, and accidently kicking my pup and best buddy, Kolo, too many times since he loves to sleep under my desk at my feet.

I started writing as a teen, but my fear of the unknown won out every time and I threw everything out. After becoming a mother and deciding to stay at home to raise my beautiful little girl, I tried again when I couldn’t stop thinking of ideas. I loved every minute, every hour of sleep lost, and every character that came to life in my mind.

It’s strange, but my favorite moments are when I have writer’s block because I can turn to my husband and find inspiration through him by just doing what we do best together. Talking, laughing, and just being in love. He doesn’t like to read, but he never stops encouraging me to keep going.

Writing has become an important part of my life and every book has a special place in my heart.

Nanny and the Professor 

Nanny & The Professor

 

Professor Joshua Kingston thought he’d found the perfect nanny for his son. But once Cassie Simmons stepped into his life, she turned it upside down! His son no longer played by the rules – and Cassie kept making up new ones. He would fire her – if he didn’t find her so utterly enticing.

 

Cassie had a huge secret to hide, and she couldn’t afford to lose her new job. But her handsome employer wasn’t making things easy. All those silly rules. How was an eight-year-old boy supposed to have any fun? The professor definitely needed a lesson in laughter – and love!

 

 

 

Taking Love in Stride

Taking Love in Stride 

Track coach Andrea O’Connor is fuming at the audacity of Ian Powers, the very attractive father of one of her students. He offers to buy school equipment only if Andrea agrees to train him for a half-marathon.

 

Well, train him, she will. And not just in running. As a widower with a high-powered job, Ian needs some instruction in being a father to an active teenage daughter. Yet as this overbearing man opens up, Andrea finds herself learning lessons—in loving.

 

Ian knows that Andrea, with her assertive attitude and her penchant for stilettos, is some woman! But her vulnerable heart is on the run, so he’ll have to prove that his love, unlike his running, has limitless endurance—and once he catches this swift beauty, he’ll never let her go.

 

 

Mountain Laurel

 

Mountain Laurel

Laurel never expected Michael’s acting abilities to be quite so convincing. Whenever her sister was watching, Laurel found herself wrapped in a heady embrace with a passionate kiss on the way.

Synopsis 3

To rescue her was to rescue his own soul.

On a cold Parisian night, Vicomte Aleksender de Lefèvre forges an everlasting bond with a broken girl during her darkest hour, rescuing her from a life of abuse and misery. Tormented by his own demons, he finds his first bit of solace in sheltering little Sofia Rose.

But when Aleksender is drawn away by the Franco-Prussian war, the seasons pass. And in that long year, Sofia matures into a stunning young woman—a dancer with an understanding of devotion and redemption far surpassing her age.

Alongside his closest friend, Aleksender returns home to find that “home” is gone—replaced by revolution, bloodshed, betrayal—and a love always out of reach. Scarred inside and out, he’s thrust into a world of sensuality and violence—a world in which all his hours have now grown dark, and where only Sofia might bring an end to the winter in his heart.

Inspired by the 1871 Paris Commune, The Frost of Springtime is a poignant tale of revolution, redemption, and the healing power of love.

Cover-Beauty-and-the-Mustache

Synopsis 3There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston: 1) She has six brothers and they all have beards, 2) She is a reader, and 3) She knows how to knit.

Former beauty queen, Ashley Winston’s preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her Amazon kindle one-click addiction. However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can’t escape the notice of Drew Runous— local Game Warden, bear wrestler, philosopher, and everyone’s favorite guy. Drew’s irksome philosophizing in particular makes Ashley want to run for the skyscrapers, especially since he can’t seem to keep his exasperating opinions— or his soulful poetry, steadfast support, and delightful hands— to himself. Pretty soon the girl who wanted nothing more than the escape of the big city finds she’s lost her heart in small town Tennessee.

This is a full-length novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the fourth book in the ‘Knitting in the City’ series.

Review

★★★★★ Ten stars★★★★★


It never ceases to amaze me how much Penny Reid amazes me and she truly did with Beauty and the Mustache.

While most of Penny’s stories are generally heavy on the comedy, BatM is funny in parts but has a more somber tone than the other Knitting in the City series. Ashley Winston, a pediatric nurse heads home to Tennessee when she finds out her mother is not well. She has not been home in over 8 years and does not relish the idea of spending inordinate amounts of time with her 6 hillbilly brethren. 

But what she finds when she gets there is exactly what she expects and then shortly thereafter is not at all what she expects. And the biggest surprise comes in the form of a Viking God like conservation officer that has become a huge part of her family in her absence. 

One of the things I found to be so lovely about BatM was the banter that went back and forth between Drew and Ashley. The fact that he was not only well read, but highly sensitive and romantic without ever displaying weakness made him the epitome of the strong silent type. Every few chapters peeled back another layer of the onion that was Drew.

The support Ash received from her friends and family as they faced a terrific loss was incredibly touching. The fact that even Quinn and Nico made an appearance speaks volumes about the relationships this group of friends. 

The Winston family dynamic is one I can identify with. Not so much the unusual bathroom schedule, and I do not consider my siblings hillbillies, but more in the way that your family has no problem torturing you, but they are the first ones to have your back if someone else starts to mess with you.

This has truly been my favorite book in the KITC series. The skill and artistry it takes to create diverse characters who are both lovable and believable is truly something that Penny has mastered and I love the way her inventive mind works.

SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.

Review

5 Pennies

Brandace Morrow you have done it again, this book exceeds anything I could have ever expected.  Your ability to tackle the tough topic of abuse and the need for the victims to have a way to reach out for help, for them to know that there is someone out there that not only cares but that will help them get out of their current situation, to give them hope.

The story of Kinley is heartbreaking, but the strength that she demonstrates in her ability to break free of her abuser is indescribable. She grew up seeing how perfect and loving her parents were to her and each other that is all she ever wanted.  When they began encouraging her to give Jeremy a chance she wanted to make them proud.  She had no idea what that would cost her.  Just when Kinley has almost given up a stranger comes into her life that give her hope.

Danny is a muscular, big, sexy, hunk of a man.  He doesn’t know what exactly was happening but when he saw this girl in distress he knew he had to speak up.  He wanted to be able to offer help, be present for her if she would except to hopefully give her a better chance at life.

This book is a crazy twisted up version of fate that hooks the reader and had me holding my breath waiting to see what is going to happen next.  The journey for Kinley trying to escape her abuser and find out who she really is is very difficult at times and very rewarding at times.

The characters in this book are so lovable.  The connection that Kinley and Danny have from the first meeting when he is rapping to the tile wall of the bathroom of the gym to help her,  is undeniable.  Danny is the white knight that every girl dreams of; he has had his fair share of heartache in his life, but still maintains his positive outlook and his humbleness in helping others when they need it.  One of my all time favorite characters is Lu, the no-nonsense free spirit that just happens to walk into Kinley’s life when she needs a friend the most.  Lu is someone who is not going to sugarcoat the hard stuff for Kinley; she pushes her when no one else will.  She is the kind of friend I would want to have.

There are just so many things I want to say about this book, but I also don’t want to give anything away, so what I must say is everyone should check this out.  You don’t want to miss Kinley and Danny’s story.   Just be aware you will need some Kleenex’s along the way.

Excerpt

 

With water to my neck, I turn the faucet off and can hear Danny splashing next door. “Are you done with your legs, too?” I ask him teasingly.

“Just finishing up the bikini area. Do you prefer a heart, or something a little more exotic?” he shoots right back, making me giggle.

“What does bottle five say for you?”

“Let’s see.” I hear glass clinking together. “It says . . . place on face for ten minutes. When dry, rinse off, and apply jar six. This is getting kind of ridiculous. I’ve never had to do this shit before,” Danny says.

“We’ll see what we look like when we’re done. My skin feels so smooth.”

“Yeah, mine too. I’m a facial away from losing my man card. Oh wait, that’s jar five. There it went, flying off to some well-deserving guy who’s eating a raw steak and roping a steer down the street. I may have to move to Mexico to get it back. How do you feel about matadors?”

I burst out laughing as I apply the goopy mess in my jar six to my face. “You can restore your card later. I’m sure there will be food to shovel and beer to belch.”

“You don’t get the man card credo. It’s an application process, Kinley. After all of these products, it could be months before I’m worthy again,” he explains.

“That’s terrible. I had no idea all it took was a few little jars.”

“Don’t underestimate the power of a good facial. I’m never living this down . . . I think this is avocado.”

“Are you eating it? Danny!” I yell through my laughter.

“It’s good fats, Kinley. Remember? Anyway, it’s all your fault,” Danny decides.

“How do you figure?”

“Well, I’m only in here to be close to you. This should show you how committed I am,” Danny informs me.

“Thank you for sacrificing your manhood to show me you care. That means a lot,” I joke.

I hear Danny sniff indignantly before he says, “As long as you value my surrender, it’s all worth it.”

 Jason Sutherland is a billionaire investor who has it all: good looks,
billions of dollars, and every expensive toy a man could ever want. What
he doesn’t have is the one thing he wants the most: Hope Sinclair.
Unfortunately Hope, the little sister of his best friend, was off
limits. But when he finds out that she’s getting married, he decides
that he’s staking his claim before it’s too late, and it will take more
than a little deception and risk to accomplish his goal. Hope could end
up hating his guts, but after spending one forbidden night with her that
he can’t forget, he knows he has to try to make her his forever.
Hope Sinclair was born into money, but being rich has never made her
happy. The one thing she wants is a man to care about her and not her
bank account. The closest thing she’s ever found to real happiness was
the magical, passionate night she’d spent in the arms of Jason
Sutherland…until that night turned into heartbreak. So when he
unexpectedly comes back into her life in the strangest of ways, Hope is
determined to resist her attraction to him.Thrown together by Jason’s deception and with their passion still
burning hot, can the two of them survive after the billionaire is
unmasked?

Sam meets up with Maddie again by chance; his brother Simon is marrying

she’s torn between her dislike for the man and the offer of something
she’s always desperately wanted. Once, Sam Hudson nearly destroyed her,
but Maddie discovers that sometimes things aren’t always what they

something more to him beneath the surface?

brother-in-law and friend, Max Hamilton. Without his former career to
fill every minute of the day, Kade’s looking for something to challenge
him–now that he’s lost the career that had meant everything to him.
But what starts out as a simple favor soon becomes a whole lot more than
he bargained for when the woman he’s seeking slips away from him every
time he gets close to finding her. When Kade does finally corner her,
things start to get even more complicated. Asha Paritala is nothing
like he expected, and the female he had tracked down as a favor for Max
soon becomes a woman he wants for his very own, a woman who makes
protective and highly predatory instincts he didn’t know he had flare to
life inside him. Kade soon discovers that he wants Asha’s total
surrender to the desire and passion that vibrates intensely between the
two of them, but he also wants her trust, the one thing Asha’s history
makes it difficult for her to give. Can Kade convince her that some
things are worth risking it all?
Caught
between two worlds, Asha Paritala is homeless, broke and damaged from a
life of abuse and neglect. Born of an American mother and an Indian
immigrant father, Asha was raised as an Indian woman by a foster family
after the death of her natural parents when she was little more than a
baby. She’s spent her entire life under the control of others until
finally breaking free two years earlier, and she’s determined to keep
her freedom, even if it means she has to struggle to survive. But when
she meets Kade Harrison, her resolve is tested. After Kade helps her
through a bad situation, she finds herself beginning to trust Kade as
she’s never trusted a man before. Kade is everything she always
thought a man should be, but can she lose herself in him completely when
she knows she’s damaged and confused. And is it really possible that
she could be a lost sibling to two people like Max Hamilton and Maddie
Hudson? Asha is tempted by the possibility of family, and the
irresistible lure of a man like Kade Harrison. Can a woman caught
between two cultures, so flawed and so backward, really reach out and
take what she wants, or will the instinct to run from the pain of her
past destroy the hope of happiness for her future?

Andrew Jones grew up in a small town in Wyoming, and as a teen watched his family implode following the death of his father. Driven by the need to provide for his little brother, he begins looking for work, restlessly traveling from job to job on his Indian motorcycle, seeking something he cannot define.

 

Meeting Davis Mason, President of the Rebel Wayfarers MC in Chicago is a pivotal event in his life, and over the following years he gradually becomes Slate, assuming the persona as first a prospect into Mason’s MC, then as a full patch member. He has finally found the brotherhood he longed for, a sense of connection and belonging…a family and home.

 

The only thing missing from Slate’s life is a woman who can love him…all of him. He finds his match in a daughter of the MC, and his dreams become filled with her silent smiles, unruly red hair, and soft curves. Slate works to gain her trust, but as their relationship slowly begins to grow, ghosts from their previous lives threaten to ruin everything and put the woman he loves in grave danger.

 

Can he save her from dangers drawn to her by the past, or will she and their love be a casualty of conflict caused by the club.

Review

4 Pennies

I enjoy reading any type of MC books.  This book is a twist on MC world through the life of one individual is trying to find his place in the world while traveling across the US on his bike.

Andy is a rancher at heart.  Growing up on his parent’s ranch in Wyoming he helped to keep the ranch running, especially after his father became ill and could no longer do it.  Andy’s life changed forever when his father passes and they sell the ranch and have to move to town.  Andy has a giant heart and wants to ensure that everyone is taken care of without any thought to himself.  He shows time and time again through the book that he is a selfless individual with a heart of gold.

Benny is Andy’s little brother.  When Andy needs to leave to find work and find his place in the world, Benny begins living with his Geema.  After Andy leaves, he stays true to his word and he makes sure that Benny and his grandparents have what they need by sending them money.

Throughout Andy’s motorcycle trip we get to experience so many different MC that he comes across from time to time.  The way that Andy proves himself in his odd jobs and his overall good nature, people seem to like him everywhere he goes.

The way this book was written gave an excellent back story into Andy’s life and travels and all the adventures along the way.  It is hard to even put into words how much I LOVED the characters in this book.  As I have said before Andy is an amazing person and it shows by the way people love him and want to be around him.  He has the true heart of a MC member, he takes great pride in the brotherhood and it shows.

The twists and turns throughout the book definitely kept me on my toes.  The very interesting individuals that we were introduced to from town to town, club to club were very entertaining and a bit scary at times.  The authors seems to capture the true essence of what it means to be in a MC, to be loyal and true, to hold brotherhood and family above all else.  I can’t wait to read more in the Rebel Wayfarers MC series.

Excerpt

Strolling up towards the house, he saw Andy sitting on the porch and his face broke into a huge smile. “My favorite brother, Andy, my man, whacha doing here?” He stepped up onto the porch and set the bags by the wall; squatting on the edge of the porch for a second, he dropped his feet and legs over the edge, slapping his ass down.

“I’m your only brother, asshat,” Andy responded.

Ben turned with an affectionate fist bump to the shoulder for Andy and grinned devilishly. “Hope you weren’t waiting long; I had to take care of my girl before I came home.”

Andy looked hard at Ben, trying to see past the tousle-headed little boy he used to be, who had always-worried eyes and a soft spot for strays of any kind. Looking at his brother now, he saw a young man taller than most fourteen-year-olds, with light blond hair long enough to style and ice blue eyes that seemed to smile all the time.

He was fit and defined, and walked with an easy grace. He honestly looked closer to seventeen than fourteen. In his face, you could see the man he would grow into, with a strong jaw and slightly upturned, straight nose. Ben was going to be a lady-killer, for sure, but he was starting too young, and with the wrong girl.

“Ben, you are fourteen. Ain’t nobody taking care of their girl at that age,” Andy drawled. He was a little put out with Ben, but couldn’t put his finger on why.

“I might be fourteen, but I at least have a girl,” Ben teased Andy. “I’m not sitting home every night with Rosie Palm and her five sisters, man.”

“Goddammit, Ben, do you know what her daddy’d do if he heard you talking like that about his little girl?” Andy twisted to look at the bags, zeroing in on what bothered him. “And what’s up with the shopping? You come into money I don’t know about?”

Ben had the grace to look a little sheepish. “She bought me a few clothes, is all. She wants me to look nice when we go out with her friends.” He shrugged. “It’s not a big deal; it’s only a couple of things.”

Andy looked at him and ran one hand through his hair. “If you needed new clothes, why didn’t you tell me, Benny? Have I ever said no?”

“It’s not that, Andy. My school clothes are all fine. These are for going out in, and they aren’t practical.”

Shaking his head, Andy looked at Ben and decided to change the subject. “Benny, you know I lost the mill job, yeah?” Ben nodded. “There aren’t any other jobs around here, so I’m headed to Denver in a couple of days; there’s oilfield work there. I’ll be back as I can, and I’m gonna send money to GeeMa for you.”

Ben sat and looked at him for a second, then leaned forward to put his elbows on his legs and dropped his head into his hands. With a strangled voice, he asked, “You’re leaving, Andy?” His fingers clenched in his hair and he rocked back and forth for a second.

Slinging an arm around his shoulders, Andy pulled him into his side in a one-armed hug. “It’ll be okay, shrimp. I’ll be back for a visit in a few weeks.” He could feel Ben’s muscles tense and tighten all over his body; he was holding himself stiff and eventually pulled away from Andy’s grip.

“Okay, Andy. Whacha need me to do?” Ben asked softly.

“Don’t need you to do anything, shrimp. Just keep going to school, learn lots, and do good things.” Andy pulled him back into a full hug, folding Ben against his chest and resting his chin on his little brother’s head. “I got this.”

Author Bio

Raised in the south, MariaLisa learned about the magic of books at an early age. Every summer, she would spend hours in the local library, devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she says “I’ve always loved to read, but then I discovered writing, and found I adored that, too. For reading … if nothing else is available, I’ve been known to read the back of the cereal box.”

 

Oatmeal is her comfort food. She hates gardening but loves flowers; not cut arrangements, but in the wild, outside. She has a deep and abiding respect for our military. Her dad was career Air Force, and parades make her cry.

 

A serious hockey fan, she’s loyal to the Edmonton Oilers, and the local ECHL team, the Fort Wayne Komets, are a fav of hers. She has season tickets and even tries to hit the road games within a hundred-mile radius.

 

On music, she says, “I love music of nearly any genre — jazz, country, rock, alt rock, metal, classical, bluegrass, rap, hip hop … you name it, I listen to it. I can often be seen dancing through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars. If said bar has a good selection of premium tequila, then that’s a plus!”
