Snippet Sunday

Her Kind of Man is a publisher's best seller at, and is on sale at the publisher's site for .99.

In this excerpt, my hero Ross refuses to let Kara's former fiance-the one who cheated on her with her sister-talk trash about her. Brandon, the fiance speaks first.

"I guess you don't need me to watch out for you," he sneered. "If you planned on getting up close and personal with him you shouldn't have worn so much perfume. You scent's all over him. What did you give him in exchange for a fancy dinner?"

Ross hit him, and Brandon's head snapped back as he fell against the porch railing. "Watch your tongue, Miles."

Brandon wiped a dribble of blood from his mouth on his shirt sleeve. "You sure can pick them, Kara."

"Obviously," Ross retorted. "She picked you, didn't she?"

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.
