I’m back after a several month hiatus to introduce my upcoming Corbin’s Bend book,The Man She Needed, which is slated to release in just over a month on October 28.
Norah Waldon comes to Corbin’s Bend to start over after her husband of 10 years is killed in a freak accident. For the first time since college, she is on her own. She’s determined to fulfill her dream of owning her own bookstore, and for the first time in her life wants to live somewhere where she can be herself as she’s been hiding her desire for a DD relationship for far too long. Her late husband would have never understood. If she can get her bookstore off the ground, and maybe just maybe find an HOH who will take care of her the way she’s always wanted, everything will be perfect.
Enter Caine Landry the carpenter who is working on her bookstore. He brings out things in her she hasn’t felt in years. There’s just one problem. He doesn’t live in Corbin’s Bend and has no interest whatsoever in anything involving spanking. He had plenty of that growing up thanks to his grandfather and his belt. He can never do that to another person, no matter how he might feel about Norah.
Will their differences prove to be insurmountable or can Caine somehow find a way to become the man she needs?
In the excerpt I’m sharing today, Norah has just arrived in Corbin’s Bend, and she and Caine get off to a less than auspicious beginning.
Taking a deep breath to calm herself, Norah opened the front door leading into the lower floor that would become her bookstore.
And stopped dead at the sight of a blond man in jeans and a battered denim jacket standing in the middle of the bare concrete floor. A medium-sized black and white dog immediately jumped up from its place by his side and let out a sharp and surprisingly loud bark. The man turned on his heel, a faint flicker of surprise crossing his eyes at the sight of her.
“What are you doing here?” Norah blurted, too shocked to be worried about being polite.
“I work here,” he replied. “And you?”
“I live here,” Norah told him.
Obviously, they’re not getting off to the best start. Will it get better or worse?
Just as a heads up, the amazing cover for The Man She Needed will be revealed on both my blog and the Corbin’s Bend blog on Wednesday, Sept. 23. You don’t want to miss it.
Now go see what everyone else has to offer.
