An Excerpt From My Book:
Mail-Order Husband (Whiskey River Brides, #2)
For this week's Manic Monday, I decided to do an excerpt from my book Mail-Order Husband, the second book in my Whiskey River Brides series! After all, a girl needs her protection!
But first, the synopsis!
She wants to change the rules. He wants to play the role of protector. Together, Madison and Wyatt will gamble it all for love.
Despite her beauty and charm, Madison is single and a little lost in the bustle of Whiskey River. Declining a less-than-suitable offer from the town’s resident terror, Madison needs protection. Forget mail-order brides, she’s on a mission to discover a would-be husband.
Thousands of miles due east in New York City, debonair gambler Wyatt Nash is lucky in cards. He soon finds himself disenchanted by city life and those quick to accuse him of cheating. So, he decides to take off in search of happiness under the big open sky. What he finds will change his life forever.
Return to the wild frontier in the second installment of the ten-book series, Whiskey River Brides. Join Madison, Wyatt, and your favorite characters as they struggle to overcome loss, change, and discover the whispers of new love in this enchanting western world.
And now, the excerpt!
Colton smiled at Madison as he folded his hands above his plate and placed them on his chin. “I heard you pulled a gun on ol’ Pete the other day.”
Ella almost spit out her lemonade “You what?”
Madison shrugged. “He came after me one too many times.”
Ella smiled conspiratorially. “Good for you!”
Colton looked between his wife and Madison. “I’d just like to know where you got the gun, Madison.”
Ella bit her lower lip, concealing a smile.
“Let’s just say that a woman has her ways.” Madison smiled conspiratorially at Ella.
“Uh-huh,” Colton teased as he resumed eating. “And my lovely wife had nothing to do with it?”
Madison laughed. “That, you’re going to have to take up with your lovely wife,” she teased, and everyone laughed.
Ella dabbed daintily at her lips. “A woman needs protection.”
Wyatt smiled, looking at Madison. “You should have seen her! She was fearless. And Pete’s eyes grew as big as saucers. It was the funniest thing I ever saw! I just wish she had shot him. It would have saved me the trouble.”
Colton smiled. “Well, I don’t think you’ll have to worry about Pete anymore. Between Madison pulling a gun on him and you throwing him down the stairs today, he might get the hint.”
Madison turned her attention back to her meal. “I won’t bet on it. I don’t think he’ll ever quit.”
