Weekend Writing Warriors: Great #Sale

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. I imagine you expected to hear about Prince Alan today, but since another of my books Her Kind of Man is only sale for just .99 this weekend, I thought we might look at that one. Her Kind of Man was designated a True Gem by Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews. If you buy a copy, send me a confirmation number or something, and I'll enter you in a contest to win a copy of The Enchanted.  It's available at most online retail outlets and from the publisher at http://www.lachesispublishing.com/proddetail.asp?prod=HerKindofMan  You can find more lovely sentences at http://www.wewriwa.com



blurb:
Is it possible she’s finally found Her Kind of Man?

Ross Williams has been in love with Kara Cochrane since they were kids so when Kara's fiancĂ© Brandon Miles cheats on her and calls off their wedding—Ross steps in to rescue the damsel in distress.

A heartbroken Kara just wants to get on with her life and hunky Ross provides her with a definite distraction—that is until she starts falling for him. Big time.

But a devastating family secret threatens to destroy everything that Kara holds dear—including her relationship with Ross.


Excerpt: This excerpt comes from the opening scene in the library. Kara and Ross went to high school together, and even though Kara doesn't know it Ross always had a crush on her.


“If Brandon ever gets tired of you, you can always marry Ross,” Katie whispered as she pulled another magazine from the stack on the table.

“He’s a dairy farmer for crying out loud.” Kara rolled her eyes. “Can you imagine me milking the cows?”

Katie clapped her hands over her mouth to stifle a giggle. “I’d love to see you pulling on a cow’s teats. Seriously, though, Ross may be a cow farmer, but you’ve got to admit he’s cute.”
 
“Shh, keep your voice down.

Milking cows? I don't think so.
(don't bother checking my blog, it's a really bad poem. Next week will be better, I promise)

I'd love to marry a farmer! Farm boys can be great boyfriend or husband material. Very cute dialogue.

These girls sound pretty silly. He doesn't sound like such a bad catch to me...
