She's just what the doctor ordered... but never knew he needed

U.S. Marshal-turned-Sheriff Taylor James can trace her family back to the original thirteen Marshals appointed by George Washington. She's good at her job, but once they find out she's the local law, she can't get even one of her dates to stay past the appetizers. Her plan? Convince good friend and hot neighbor Dr. Gabriel Adams to give her dating lessons since his dance card is always full.

A survivor of childhood leukemia with no guarantee his remission will last, Gabe lives by two rules: Don't get emotionally involved and don't let his well organized life spiral out of control. When he's given a baby, with his name on her birth certificate, he needs Taylor's help. But dangling dating lessons in exchange? If that will get the dedicated sheriff to lend a helping hand, could it be a bargain worth making?

EXCERPT:
Gabe parked his Jeep behind her truck.

Taylor had to admit the man had the goods. With chestnut hair, cut short, and dark brown eyes, sporting a sexy sense of humor in triplicate, the rumors had to be true. Irresistible charm, coupled with the touch-me cleft in his chin, and a light growth of beard he never quite shaved smooth, his dating card most certainly had a wait list.

Taylor resisted fanning her face. She wasn’t one of his dating bunnies, and getting in line wasn’t on her must-do list. Gabe Adams was every woman’s fantasy. Just not hers.

He frowned at the bag in her hands. The line between his dark brows smoothed into a clarity that had her teeth grinding. “Want to talk about the latest dating disaster?”

A startling idea braked to a halt in her head. Shoving the crazy thought into a mental locker, she shrugged. “He had to rush off to an estate sale.”

“Likely story.”

“That’s what I thought,” she muttered, giving in to his charming smile.

“When did you tell him you’re the sheriff?”

She rolled her eyes. Here it comes.

She knew it. Her timing had been off. “Did you hear Our Town is opening at the new theater next month? Are you planning to go?”

He narrowed his gaze on her. Taylor squirmed. And not in a good way. “You told him right off the bat, didn’t you? I keep telling you to wait until the date is over before revealing you’re a lawman…woman…whatever. Guys aren’t keen on the idea that the gal they’re dating can ticket them for racing through residential districts or bust them for being non-compliant with local business laws.”

“You think he’s a felon?” She ground her teeth. That would be a great addition to her already smeared résumé.

She could see the headline in the Angel Point Gazette now. “Taylor James, Former U.S. Marshal Turned Small Town Sheriff, Seen At The Chowder House With Notorious Criminal.” Now she was going to have to check the man for wants and warrants.

  1. Thank you so much for inviting me to hang out at All The Ups and Downs. Along with being an author, I work a day job, but I'll try to check in throughout the day to see how everyone is doing and to answer questions. My question for you. What has been the date where you've had the most fun? For me that was the time Mr. L convinced me to go on a bike ride with him. We both have bicycles we don't ride much, and I'm a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to riding it. No balance. That was a fun date. I didn't fall once ;)

    1. It's hard to pick one favorite. Gabe was a ton of fun to write. Taylor, a US Marshal turned small town sheriff, I think has to be my favorite. She has a lot of spunk. I really like that about her.

    1. Hi Caryl. What I love most about writing is the beginning and the end :) Before I start writing, I set up a journal for each book to discover who my characters are, what they're like, what and who inspires them, what makes them stumble, and what their journey to happy-ever-after looks like. And then, when the story is all done and I write those two happy words...The End, I am a very content storyteller.

  17. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block and, if so, how do you overcome it?

    1. Hi Peggy. I don't really suffer from writer's block. Sometimes I may have a hard time moving a scene forward and when I do, I call a friend :D ... one of my writing buddies and talk it out. I'm an external problem solver, so as long as I can talk about the problem, I can brainstorm a solution. The other thing is, I recently learned about the chunky method of writing at a workshop. How that works is you figure out how many words you typically write before the words run out. As long as I write my chunk, so far, I haven't gotten stuck on a scene.

  24. Goddess Fish Promotions has awesome book tours! The best date I had was with my husband (who is now deceased).I had an amazing blast with my husband for a week in Acapulco. It was the first time we got to spend this amount of time together without restraints. Just us being ourselves completely in a foreign country. Sounds like a really intriguing book

    And what a sweet cover!
    Thank you for sharing the review.

  26. A lady sheriff sounds like a delightful shift. I remember a nearby village had a sturdy lady sheriff who broke up a fight by sitting on them. She was on The Tonight Show and I have never forgotten the image and still laugh about it.
