Turnaround Farm is a kindle unlimited title available at

If up and coming realtor Holly Grant can buy Turnaround Farm for her client, her business will boom. Who says you have to have a man in your life to complete you? She’s fine as she is thank you very much. Her first problem is that Jeb Wakefield doesn’t want to sell his farm, and her second problem is Jeb’s grandson Dan, the finest looking man Holly’s ever seen. 

Excerpt: Chapter One
Last week

“We’d love to.”

Dan didn’t bother to excuse himself. He stalked into the mudroom and prepared to go outdoors. By the time Jeb reached the barn, he had already led the mare from her stall. Jeb watched him scratch the horse’s ear and ruefully shook his head. Dan didn’t approve of his hospitality.

Joining Dan, he ran a practiced hand down the horse’s leg, feeling for heat or tenderness. “You liked her, didn’t you?”

Dan made a noise that might have passed for a laugh.“Yeah, right.

This Week: We begin where we left off last week.  Dan is speaking first.

Terrific, Elaine. I'm interested in more of your story.

Dan protests too much now! I think I see where this is all going even if he doesn't LOL. Great snippet!

Hiding your feelings behind physical labour. He's a true romantic hero and is already gone, gone, gone.

His physical response to "Why don’t you ask her out” is to grab a pitchfork. At that point, he almost doesn't need words. Great detail.

I thought the same thing as E. This whole scene is marvelous, Elaine! Good tension, great emotions.

I like how the logic is':"You're handsome, she's pretty, instant success!"

I think Dan is wrong about what he has to offer.
