to determine if she is worthy ‘A Silver Lining’ #Contemporary #Erotic #Western @BethDCarter @evernightpub

Hey folks! Today I’m happy to introduce you to Beth D. Carter and her story A Silver Lining!

~ * ~ BIO ~ * ~

I like writing about the very ordinary girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, so my heroines will probably never be lawyers, doctors or corporate high-rollers. I try to write characters who aren’t cookie cutters and push myself to write complicated situations that I have no idea how to resolve, forcing me to think outside the box. I love writing characters who are real, complex and full of flaws, heroes and heroines who find redemption through love.

When Heather Hart was a young girl, she met cowboy Tristan Roger and promptly lost her heart to the young rodeo clown. Twenty years later, Heather has been summoned by her dying grandfather to determine if she is worthy, being the last of the Harts, to inherit the family ranch.

Only the man she’ll be competing against is none other than Tristan Rogers. She has one month to learn five things about the ranch and Tristan is given the task of “showing her the ropes”, so to speak. Heather recognizes her adversity and uses all the weapons in her arsenal to fight for the Hart Ranch, namely sex appeal and attitude aplenty.

But Tristan can’t help but remember the young girl who had been more innocent and shy than this hellcat in high heels. As he tries to figure out what embittered her, Heather must transform into a woman worthy not only of her grandfather’s approval, but her own.

This is a previously published work. It has been revised and edited for Evernight Publishing.

At the poolside, she dropped her towel onto a lounger, slipped off her heels, and put a toe into the water to test the temperature.

She then moved to the low diving board, jumped once, and dove in with a clean splash. She swam one lap, then another, and when she had completed her third, her gaze caught a pair of worn boots standing near the water’s edge. She stopped swimming and looked up at Tristan, whose frame was silhouetted against the twilight sky.

His arms were crossed over his chest, never a good sign, but one that provoked Heather to turn on her tease.

“Come on in, the water is fabulous. And I don’t mind if you skinny-dip.”

“The stalls aren’t done. If they’re done daily, it would probably only take a few hours or so. If weekly, then the better part of the day. It’s been two days, Heather!”

“I finished half of them.”

“And the other half?”

“I’ll do them tomorrow.”

“What don’t you understand? Finish the stalls!

“Don’t yell at me! I’m doing the best I can.”

Tristan sighed and ran a hand over his face. “Heather—”

“You never once said I had to be finished in a day,” she shot back. Tired of treading water, she swam to the side and hauled herself out.

She saw his eyes widen a bit at her state of dress, or state of undress, as the case may be. The water sluiced over her skin, caressing her body like a lover’s touch. She slicked back her hair and caught his Adam’s apple bobbing as he swallowed. The air around them suddenly thickened as lust hit her fast and hard. Her nipples tightened with need. Her pussy turned slick with desire. And the next thing she knew, she was in his arms, meeting his kiss with a savage hunger.

He didn’t use any finesse or seduction, and he really didn’t have to. She matched his desperation, as if she were lost in the desert and had just found an oasis. Where this urgency came from, she had no idea. It wasn’t a feeling she’d ever experienced before, and she wasn’t quite sure if she liked it. She didn’t want to need him, she didn’t want to crave him, and yet she couldn’t get enough.

He nibbled at her lips, sucking on each one before sliding them apart. He entwined his tongue with hers, initiating its own mating ritual. The lust that welled inside her skin was like a vortex, and she was helpless to avoid it. She snaked her arms around his neck, and rubbed her body against his like a cat wanting to be petted. She could almost hear her own purr. She twirled the hair at the nape of his neck, accidentally hitting his cowboy hat and knocking it off-center.

The movement seemed to shock Tristan out of the sensual haze that engulfed them. His head snapped back and he stared at her with wide eyes. His chest heaved. “Tristan?” She reached for him again.

But whatever spell had woven around them had already shattered. Without a word, he jerked away from her and turned to walk briskly back to the house.

pack, and that has been enough. When she meets the Alpha and Beta of
a neighboring bear clan and learns these men are her fated mates, her
life changes in ways she never could have dreamed.
CAN SAVE THE WORLD
Brothers Mason and Riker Porda became the Alpha and Beta of their clan when

Their mate is everything they thought they’d never have, and when
the threat of collector demons returning to earth invades the shifter

Amelia’s past issues and personal time limits propel her into a relationship

ordinary life. As she desperately tries to hold on to her pre-Connor
life, she struggles to balance the new-found attention while trying
to follow her heart. Something she realizes is complicated… very
complicated – because her heart has no idea where it’s going.

planning his future to let some random guy walk away with his happily
ever after. He will do anything to protect her virtue, even if it

The closer Amelia gets to figuring out her love life, the more Hawk
unravels. While he deals with loose ends and new threats, his

Amelia finally figures out exactly who her heart wants, and she is
determined to go for it. She is willing to give the knight who stole
her heart everything. She owns up to her mistakes and truly attempts
to change, but just because her mind is made up, doesn’t mean her
love is reciprocated. Will she choose the best-friend who learned her
by heart, or the soccer god who ignored her for the longest time? One
of them will win her heart, the other will break it… But neither of
them are safe from the guy who will stop at nothing to protect her.
Murder isn’t something Hawk shies away from. Actually, he prefers to use
it as a last recourse, but he’s unravelling. The closer Amelia gets
to achieving happiness, the more his control disintegrates. And when
one of his carefully laid plans turns on him, he loses it. Realizing
he’s the reason behind Amelia’s attack, plagues him with guilt.
In all his attempts to protect her, he was the one who put her in

back?

this year, something is different ‘Red Harvest’ #Horror @fearwriter @SDSXXTours

Red Harvest
The Haunted Hollow Chronicles #1
by Patrick C. Greene
Genre: Horror
In the epic tradition of
Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Jonathan Maberry, a chilling new
masterwork of small-town evil, centuries-old traditions, and
newly-risen terror…
Red Harvest
Every year at harvest
time, something strange and wonderful happens in the sleepy farm
community of Ember Hollow. It comes alive. Truckloads
of pumpkins are sent off to be carved into lanterns. Children
scramble to create the creepiest, scariest costumes. Parents stock up
on candy and prepare for the town’s celebrated Pumpkin Parade. And
then there is Devil’s Night . . .
But this year, something
is different. Some of the citizens are experiencing dark, disturbing
visions. Others are beginning to wonder if they’re losing their
minds, or maybe their souls. One newly sober singer with the voice of
a fallen angel is tempted to make a deal that will seal his fate. And
one very odd boy is kept locked in a shed by his family—for reasons
too horrible to imagine . . .
Whatever is happening to
this town, they’re going to make it through this Halloween.
Even if it kills them . . .
Patrick C. Greene is

luck has run out. His ex-wife turned out to be a con artist; his
business is in a shambles, and he’s been tossed into a muddy river
by a smart assed feminist with a chip on her shoulder. Things
couldn’t get much worse…or so he thought.
When Lucky’s accused of murdering his ex-wife, the Coalson family
enlists the help of a private investigator to gather the clues
necessary to prove his innocence. Little did they know that Renee
Morgan is the same woman that sent Lucky scrambling up a sodden river
bank at the height of a storm.
The two square off immediately, but Renee’s admiration of the Coalson
family, despite her dislike of Lucky, is the deciding factor in her
acceptance of the job. And although Lucky bristles every time she
speaks, he grudgingly respects her intelligence and savvy skills as a
private investigator.
As the hunt for the killer escalates, the two find they are not the only
ones looking for the mysterious assassin. And the other people are
more than willing to take out anyone that gets in their way,
including those that Lucky and Renee hold dear to their hearts.
In a moment of passion that rocks them to the core, they realize their
love may be forged in fire, but both have been badly burned by past
lovers, and too stubborn to admit the truth. Can they find a way
around their fears, or will Lucky’s ex-wife continue to plague him
from the grave?

trouble in tight jeans and she knows it.
After saving Rebecca and her feisty sister, Renee, from an assassin’s
bullet, Nick sets his sites on the quiet private detective. But he
mistakes her kindness for weakness, and learns the hard way that
although she may seem submissive, she’s a voluptuous bundle of
intelligence and determination.
Rebecca tries to hide her feelings for Nick because he’s the kind of man
that makes a smart girl do stupid things. After a sensual encounter
in a pressured situation, Rebecca knows she’s going to need to keep
her wits about her or lose herself to Nick’s dominant personality.
When Rebecca is kidnapped and sold to a sex slave ring, Nick goes out of
his mind trying to rescue her, but finds his lone wolf ways won’t
work. He must enlist the aid of the mysterious Jonas Blackshire, who
seems to know way too much about the slave ring he rescues Rebecca
from.
Is Jonas friend or foe, and what is his connection to the man sworn to
destroy the Coalson family? Nick must find out before he loses
Rebecca and his family to the killer’s nefarious plans.
