Camille's Second Chance by Alyssa Bailey #Contemporary , #Cowboys ,#Western


Camille wants a life with Sawyer; not everyone agrees.


Blurb


“We’re going to the ranch. This Daddy is taking care of all his little ones.”


Before she was twenty-one, Camille Hendrix had been lied to, cheated on, assaulted twice, forced into a loveless marriage, divorced, and left to fend for herself with one baby and another on the way. She had also been loved by a man she left without a word of explanation and missed every day of her life. Now, with a nursing degree and two preschoolers she was determined to return to her hometown and make a life, if possible, with the only man she ever loved. But was it too much to ask? Someone in town thought so. 


Sawyer Knight was the most sought-after playboy in three counties and probably more. Everyone knew the woman he loved had suddenly left town without a word. Since then, Sawyer could be seen most weekends at the Whet Whistle, kicking up dust, getting toasted, and going home with a different woman. No woman was permanent in his life and Sawyer made that known loud and clear, until Cami came back to town. She was divorced, a mother, and life weary but when he laid eyes on her in his brother’s house, she was still the most beautiful, feisty woman he’d ever seen. Maybe more than ever because her strength of character shone through the battle scars and his heart immediately yearned for her. If he claimed her this time, he wouldn’t let her go without a fight. It seemed the first opponent had already entered the ring.


This is book two in the Clearwater Ranch series but can be enjoyed as a standalone.


Publisher’s Note: This contemporary western romance is intended for adults only. It contains elements of mystery, suspense, sensual scenes and power exchange. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase.

But tonight, regardless of what had gone before or because of it, she would agree with him and stay at the Clear Knight.

“Oh, I think we’ll be fine, Piper. In fact, we should get back before my parents go to bed.” Camille began to pick up her plate and started to clear away the other dishes. Jackson’s big hand covered hers. 

“Don’t worry, honey, I’ll get this handled after you all go to the ranch.” His meaning was clear. Go home with Sawyer and figure this out.

“Why do you have to get there before they go to bed? Was it because you were going to stay here but have now changed your mind?” asked Sawyer.

Sawyer was giving no quarter and knew she wouldn’t ask for any. Cami didn’t answer as she continued to gather her bag and reached for Lily. Sawyer was not playing any games with Camille nor was he going to keep his thoughts to himself. He’d call her on anything he felt needed to be addressed. He pushed the point with his woman.

“Don’t you have a key to the house?”

 His woman, yes, his. He still claimed her no matter what had happened in the past. He was the most complete he had been since he got her message and found out she was gone. She stared into his eyes acting as though she had been caught a naughty act and didn’t want to admit it but didn’t want to lie. His feelings for her were so intense they hurt.

 “Cami?”

She replied quietly. “No one calls me that anymore.”

“Except me. Stop avoiding my questions.”

Her heavy sigh rang out. “I had a difference of opinion with my mother and she said she didn’t want to risk the wrong people getting access to her home. Her implications were clear."

“The hell she did!” the words rolled out like thunder in a storm. 

“Daddy,” two little voices chastised, “that’s a bad word.” He grinned at the sound of being called daddy and quickly apologized. Things were definitely changing. Returning his attention to Cami, he sobered. Sawyer hadn’t missed the hitch in her voice or the trembling lip she was biting. He reached out and pulled it from between her teeth. Leaning in, he commanded in a low voice next to her ear.

“We’re going to the ranch. This daddy is taking care of all his little ones.”






Alyssa Bailey is a USA Today and International best-selling author. She loves writing realistic romance for the naughty in all of us. Power exchange adventures between strong, intelligent, sassy women who aren’t afraid to make a stand and men confident enough to give his woman space, but Alpha enough to keep her safe despite her choices is a common theme. 


Family and community is important to Alyssa and it’s one reason she loves series. She is expanding her horizons and comfort zone with every new book; that’s exciting. Sometimes, suspense and mystery stirs the plot, other times, it’s crazy day to day angst and danger. Whatever goes on before, there’s always a happily ever after ending.

Blurb for McKee’s Ghost


His fiancée called off their engagement after be accosted by a ghost in his house.
Now, a beautiful ghost detective has shown up at his ranch, saying his brother has hired her to take care of the unwanted spirit.
Konnor McKee is more than happy with PSI Agent Ruth Oliva Wilson. One look and he was hooked. Now, if he can only get some help from a ghost, he might be able to secure himself a bride after all.
With the return of his ex-fiancee, his life is turn upside down by an angry ghost, a vindictive woman and a sexy medium. Konnor doesn’t know which way to turn.
Can he get everyone out of this alive and marry the PSI Agent?
Or has he lost all hope of a happy future because of the ruthless ghost of one of his ancestors?
Excerpt:
Taking his anger with himself out on the young man, Konnor grabbed the glass. “And when exactly did you see Miss Wilson?”
Henry shuffled backward. “I saw her around the corner of the house when I was heading home. But then, I couldn’t leave.”
Why not?”
Well, I figured you might want me to be close by. Maybe act as a chaperone or something, so she doesn’t hogtie you into marrying her.”
Konnor set the full glass of water on the kitchen table next to a bowl of apples. “I’m not a young buck like you. I can have a woman visit without taking advantage of the situation. Now, skedaddle.”
Are you sure? Because I don’t mind staying a while longer if you need me to.” Henry edged along the counter to the back door and pointed to the table. “I also cut up some meat and set out the biscuits you made this morning.”
Thanks. Now get. I’ll see you bright and early tomorrow.” Konnor waved the boy out of the house and surveyed the food. With the table set with plates and silver, they wouldn’t have to wait to eat.
Nevertheless, what would Ruth think? Would she be happy with a cold meal? Or should he heat something else up?


Thanks for reading my excerpt,

Anita

Forever Molly by Alyssa Bailey #comtemporary , #mystery , #Adventure





Forever is a long time to live with the wrong decision.


Newlywed Molly O’Connor loves a mystery of any kind and solving them gets her blood pumping almost as much as her new husband Cián O’Connor. Cián wants his wife to ease into her new life and is open to any way she finds comfortable. Soon, however, it becomes obvious that running a clinic, orienting to a large Irish family, and dealing with her protective husband isn’t enough excitement for the love of his life.

When things progress from a little harmless fun to horse thefts, assaults, kidnapping, and even murder, Cián puts his foot down. Despite his admonitions, his bride is too emmeshed in the events going on around them to heed his warnings for long. Molly becomes secretive, refusing to let go until it’s too late, putting herself and her family in grave danger.
It will take help from the entire O’Connor clan along with some special friends to ensure the young couple’s forever isn’t over before it begins.

Excerpt PG-17


Slap and tickle, that was what got Cián off, but he didn’t need it to enjoy time with his girl. Watching his Molly as she returned to the earth made him grin with his own satisfaction. She released her fireworks just seconds before he gave her permission. That was his miscalculation and not her fault. He wouldn’t penalize her for it but the look on her face told him it might be fun to play it out a little.
“Did you have permission, aingeal?”
“Cián, I can only last so long. I tried to hold off… I told you,” Cián quirked his brow. “No sir, you didn’t give me permission.”
He leaned down and kissed her lips, sliding his hands along her sides, settling them on her hips as he seated his cock deep. “No, I did not. What should I do now?”
“Make love to me?” her hopeful tone made him groan. He’d missed this playful Molly.
“You are asking me to reward your naughtiness,” he said as he kissed her neck. His lips worked their way back to her breasts as he remained crouched over her, his body caging hers.
“But I could make it incredible for you,” she smiled, trying to be alluring. She wiggled her bottom, drawing a groan from his own lips.
“If I allow it, there will be rules. You need to follow my instructions. If I let you have any freedoms, that is,” he admonished her in mock severity.
“I will listen, but you have to let me touch you.”
“Demanding?”
“Negotiating.”
Cián burst out laughing. “You’re a fast learner. I accept your terms.”
His head lowered to capture her lips, drawing out the sweet goodness as she wrapped her legs around his middle and drew him tighter to her.
“Cián, stop tormenting me,” Molly begged. Her whimper sent his staff into a near cramp.
His spoke next to her ear, low, deep, demanding. “Who says when it’s time?”
“Can’t it be me? Please come inside to play.”
“Oh, aingeal this is no longer play.” He re-entered her hard.

Note about penning this book:
This last trilogy and especially the last book was difficult for me. I have grown as an author during the writing of the O’Connors. If you start from the beginning, with Liam and Jocelyn, you will not only follow the progression of the family storyline but the story of my writing. 


There were plenty of ups and downs and growing pains but at the end of the day, like the O’Connors, I like where I am. And like them, the next generation is in full swing and their third generation is beginning to find love as I am beginning to spread my own wings to spaces and places I never thought to go.  


I hope you have fallen in love with the O’Connors. Would you like to know of other new and wonderful places my writing might take us?
