Beyond the Book: New Releases and Blog Tours


Running away from a fiancĂ© who betrayed her, Peyton O’Malley finds employment at a beautiful mountain inn called Rest Thy Head. She didn’t expect to live in the haunted room or to fall for the inn’s owner, a fire-scarred, war veteran who uses the inn to hide away from the world. She didn’t expect her sister to show up at Rest Thy Head either, much less her formidable mother. 

Now, thanks to the aid of a friendly ghost, Peyton has a shot at true love, and so does her sister Ashley, provided the guys cooperate of course! 


He jumped off the bed and stared into the mirror over his
dresser. Truthfully, the scars on the left side of his face had faded.
They didn’t look as red and fiery as they did right after he got his
discharge, but they’d never go away. The doctor had been clear
about that.

He stripped off his shirt and looked at the left side of his
body. His arm looked the worst. Practically the whole thing bore
the marks on the fire which had disfigured him.

He dropped his pants and looked at his leg. It didn’t look as
bad as his arm, and neither did his chest. They both looked
relatively okay. Did the scars really not matter to her? Had she only
been trying to comfort him, or did she honestly mean it?

Oh, it didn’t matter either way since Patrick had gotten
involved with her. He made a gesture of repugnance. What kind of
man would covet his brother’s girl to the point he had to clamp his
teeth together to keep from picking a fight with his brother?

He’d better stay clear of her. She looked like an angel, and he
wanted her for himself, but Patrick had seen her first. Anyway,
Patrick had a lot more to offer her than he did.

He sighed and crawled into his bed. If he stopped thinking
about Peyton lying naked beside him, he might get a little sleep.

Join me tomorrow for Lachesis Publishing's blog tour. First up is Her Kind of Man. Do stop by if you can.
