Welcome Author Lorraine Nelson! Congratulations on your new release, A Cowgirl's Pride.

Blurb - A Cowgirl's Pride, Book 4 in the Thunder Creek Ranch series.

Leah Manning grew up among so many domineering, protective males that it left her frustrated, longing for a different life. Her family couldn't, or wouldn't, understand that she needed to dance, and she'd lived away for several years. Unknowing, she'd embroiled herself in a deadly game from which there seemed no way out. Now she was home. Would they welcome her back? What if trouble followed? Most importantly, did Cal still work the ranch?

Brian Calhoun, Cal to his friends, had hated Leah when she'd left, but hated himself even more for not going after her. Now she was back and more lovely than ever. Would his adolescent love for her return, develop into something more, or die a slow death at the hands of this new Leah?
Trouble does follow Leah home, and her ex will stop at nothing—even murder—to silence her. Will the terror draw them closer together or drive them apart forever?

Excerpt - A Cowgirl's Pride, Book 4 in the Thunder Creek Ranch series
He was so hot for her! If he didn’t get these damned jeans off soon, his erection just might pop the zipper. That’s how hard he was for her—so stiff the skin stretched tight over his cock and it ached.
She suddenly pulled free and backed away from him. He almost swore out loud in frustration, thinking she’d changed her mind, but she’d only gone to close the vertical blinds at the windows.
“Just in case,” she said, smiling a come-hither smile as she turned back to him.
He felt guilty for his unjust thoughts, but closed the distance between them in a heartbeat, relieved to have her back in his arms.
“I’ve missed you, Cal,” she said as she ran her fingers through his thick, wavy hair.
“No more than I’ve missed you. I was beginning to think you’d never come home.”
“Oh, I wanted to, so much, but it just wasn’t possible.”
“You’re here now,” he said, grabbing the hem of her sweater and pulling it over her head to expose beautifully shaped breasts enclosed in see-through peach lace. “And I’m so glad you’re back.”
He bent to suckle her nipples through the lacy cups, her mindless purr of delight going straight to his groin. If he got any harder, he’d explode. Still, he took his time, banking his desire as best he could to give her pleasure.
Slipping his hands inside the waistband, he worked her blue jeans and sexy peach colored thong down over her hips, promptly falling to his knees at the sight of her curls. He leaned forward, reaching out to touch her satiny skin, smell her spicy vanilla scent and taste the creamy essence that was Leah. He wanted—needed—all of it—all of her.

  1. A lot of people getting their hump on at Thunder Creek! What a hot spot! ;) Hey, how many books is this series going to go? Just wondering! Best of luck with this, as always!

  2. LOL, Adonis! Gotta love those cowboys! They love to ride!
    I was going to end the series at 5 but everyone is asking for more and the characters keep talking to me. I have enough info to go for 10 books, but I don't want to drag it out.

    What's your thought on length of series? I've seen them go anywhere from a duo to a dozen.

  3. Sorry for the delay in posting my winners. Been bogged down with edits, accounting, and income taxes.

    I'm pleased to announce the winner at London's blog is Tammy Adonis. Congratulations, Adonis! I'll be emailing you shortly.
