Blurb:
Liesel Wolf has a secret, a dangerous secret she’ll go to any lengths to conceal. When she’s paired in a charity game with sexy marshal Andy Bryce, a man with secrets of his own, her carefully constructed world comes crashing down, and Liesel’s on a collision course with her past.


Excerpt: 
Chapter One

Last week:
“No, usually not,” Tony answered. “Some people just have a logbook in a watertight container. You write in the logbook and replace it.”

Andy blew on his steaming coffee and took a sip. “I guess you could leave coordinates to another site and have searchers go there to find the cache.”

“That’s right,” Tony agreed. “Or maybe you could leave a map directing them to the cache.”

“That does sound like fun,” Andy admitted as he sipped his coffee. “But with a GPS wouldn’t it be simple to find the cache?”

“It’s surprisingly hard to do.”

Beyond the Book: Camping

When it comes to a choice between campfires or bonfires,  I’ll take my campfires anytime. When my children were young we brought a nice little travel trailer and set out to show them a good time.

We went all over the place with our camper. Once we took it to Walt Disney World, and once we took it to Knoxville for the World’s Fair. Disney World was blazing hot, and the boys just wanted to swim, but it was cool at the World’s Fair. 

We also frequently took the camper to a nice state park not far from our home. We’d hike, swim, fish, roast marshmallows, and do all the other traditional camping things.  We truly had such a nice time.

Perhaps the most fun, though, was when we’d camp with other people. It was such fun to have a group of people to do things with.  I remember some truly epic card games and an all night fishing trip. Okay, I confess. The all night fishing trip was a little much for me. By morning I was covered in dew and wanted to get off that boat in the worst way. I was hoping the kids would want a little nap, but no such luck. They were wide open all day while I dragged myself behind them and hoped for bedtime. 

As the children got older they got involved with school activities and their friends and didn’t want to go camping so much. We finally sold our little camper to some friends of ours, but I felt bad watching it go down the road because it was the end of an era in our lives.

What surprises me is that neither of my boys ever goes camping now.  I thought they’d buy their own little camper and make nice memories with their children, but so far they don’t seem too interested in it. At present one of my sons is rebuilding a motorcycle with his son, and they seem to be having a lot of fun with it. But I know that both of my sons look back on their camping days with nostalgia. So do I. 

What about you? Do you like to go camping?

For the last few months I've been sharing excerpts from Turnaround Farm, but today I'm sharing from another book, Never Trust a Pretty Wolf. We'll begin with Chapter One.

Blurb:
Liesel Wolf has a secret, a dangerous secret she’ll go to any lengths to conceal. When she’s paired in a charity game with sexy marshal Andy Bryce, a man with secrets of his own, her carefully constructed world comes crashing down, and Liesel’s on a collision course with her past.


Last week:
“Yeah. The basic idea is for groups or individuals to hide caches all over the world. Then they post the GPS coordinates of the cache on the Internet. After that, people who play the game go out and find the cache.”

Andy thought a minute. “But if someone gets there before you do, you wouldn’t find anything.”

“Yes, you would. If you take something, you’re supposed to leave something in return.”

In spite of himself Andy felt a stirring of interest. “Valuable things?”

Silver Brewer

Title: Silver Brewer: The Silver Foxes of Blue Ridge
Author: L.B. Dunbar 
Genre: Over 40 Romance Stand alone
Release Date: September 12, 2019
Olivet Pierson needs his land. 

Name your price, Mr. Harrington. 

She has her reasons, and this muscular mountain of masculinity isn’t going to get in her way. However, her heart has a different plan after she accepts his crazy conditions: three nights up on the ridge.
George Harrington is a quiet, giant of a man. 
No sale, Cricket.
He’s a war hero, a widower, and COO for the family brewing company, but his life lacks spontaneity. Then, she arrives, chirping away at him, roaming his body with those sky-blue eyes, and negotiating for something he won’t put a price on. Too bad his heart is immediately sold.
With the challenge accepted, this silver fox can no longer deny his desires for something a little different.
+++
Welcome to Blue Ridge where sexy silver foxes meet their match of feisty vixens.
The Harrington brothers are a spin-off from Second Chance, but don’t you worry, this over 40 romance can be enjoyed as a stand-alone.

 
PP’s Bookshelf - “Sexy. Emotional. Angsty. Real. Honest. Heartbreaking. Swoonworthy. Heartwarming.”

Bibliophile Chloe - “Ms. Dunbar doesn't fail to amaze me with her writing of mature characters, still full of life, still wanting to find love and the holy hotness of the chemistry and smexy times!”

Cee Cee Houston - “L.B. Dunbar has found her niche. The over 40’s is definitely a trope she does extremely well.”

“Before you try to steal my land, perhaps you should learn a thing or two about it.”

I stare up at him as his expression turns virile. 

“I know this piece of property could earn you millions.” I look beyond him, taking in the small bit of landscape I can see around his broad hips and crossed arms.
“I told you, I don’t want the money.” He scoffs. “I’m talking about dirt under your toes. Wind in your face. Stars in your eyes.” His eyes nearly dance as though he has undisclosed information he’s waiting to share with me, and strangely, I want to know his secret. And though dirt under my toes doesn’t sound pleasant, it doesn’t sound terrible either.
Still.
Tell me. Tell me all your wisdom and woes. I swallow with the intensity of his glare and rub a hand down the thigh of my jeans.
“Okay, so I’m not Pocahontas. How would I learn?” My voice cracks, sounding meek. Teach me, Yoda.
“From the land.” He pauses. His crossed arms bulge before me and lift with the heave of his frustrated inhale. What would those arms feel like around me?
“And your land will just teach me?” Oh God. Did my voice just drop? Did I exaggerate your land, implying something other than the greenery around us? Damn Marcus and his damnable innuendos, but if this man means I can hike his landscape, I volunteer as tribute. “How?”
“Camping.”
“What?” I stammer. My mouth falls open.
“Camping. Three nights of roughing it and then I’ll think about your proposition. You break before that and no deal.”
My proposition? Did I proposition him? Can he see the images racing through my mind? I want to do all kinds of things to him, starting with the body part closest to me. My heart races, and my sweaty palms…sweat more. My breath catches.

Anything whispers through my mind along with the song “Colors of the Wind.”

My eyes narrow. My heart thuds to a screeching halt. 
This is crazy.
But I slowly rise, pressing up on my thigh as I stand. I come to my full height, which doesn’t quite match his, but with the help of the two step difference, I’m close. My gaze meets his fiery eyes. There’s one thing this man needs to learn about me. I like nothing more than to prove others wrong.
“Challenge accepted.”
L.B. Dunbar loves the sweeter things in life: cookies, Coca-Cola, and romance. Her reading journey began with a deep love of fairy tales and alpha males. She loves a deep belly laugh and a strong hug. Occasionally, she has the energy of a Jack Russell terrier. Accused—yes, that’s the correct word—of having an overactive imagination, to her benefit, such an imagination works well. Author of over two dozen novels, she’s created sexy rom-coms for the over 40; intrigue on an island; MMA chaos; rock star mayhem, and sweet small-town romance. In addition, she earned a title as the “myth and legend lady” for her modernizations of mythology as elda lore. Her other duties in life include mother to four children and wife to the one and only.
