NOTE: Erotic content and naughty words abound.

Flint Calderon was a hard working, hard-bodied, hard headed Texan who'd had to grow up fast. He'd been alone for a long time. He'd kept his grand daddy's sprawling ranch intact in spite of hardships and loss...some said he was as hard as his name.

He didn't take anything he hadn't worked damned hard for. He had his own set of personal guidelines that left no room for cruelty or deceit. He kept his friends close, and his loyalty was a thing of legend in Calder County, Texas.

He went by three simple rules: Keep your word no matter what, pay your debts before buyin' more, and protect those weaker than yourself.

Lily was running from her own personal hell, only to jump from the frying pan into the fire. But the man who'd caught her sneaking into his motel room to get out of the rain was nothing like the bastard she was running from. Even being pinned on that motel bed under a pissed-off cowboy was a damn sight better than being dragged back to the man who'd murdered her mom and made her own life a living hell for so long. If only the hot cowboy wasn't naked as a jaybird...

How could he turn her over to the law? The woman he'd caught was just a rain-soaked, freezing, starving, badly battered little hellcat with nowhere to go and nothin' much to lose. And whoever had beat the hell out of her deserved no mercy...

5 Stars
Flint is a man dedicated to his ranch and Lily is a woman with nowhere to go. Thrown together by a rash decision, Flint sees a woman in need of protection and Lily only wants to get out of the state and away from the horrors of her life.
Flint is a wonderful man, plain and simple. He takes care of what he possesses and he wants Lily. There is something about her. All Lily sees in her future is fear. One glimpse at what Flint has to offer and she is torn. She knows he is a dream come true, but she doesn’t want to drag him into her nightmare.

My Review:

There is no way that was not a novel. It had it all. I loved every word about Flint and Lily. The story had depth, romance, hot sex, and action. Very well rounded and extremely fulfilling. AMAZING!!

Story Blurb:
Flint is as hard as his namesake, until one tiny spitfire with a black eye worms her way under that shell…

I enjoyed this short story that was included in the Men Of Calder County box set. Flint is a good man and when he finds Lily trying to hide, he is more than willing to help her out. Lily has gone through so much pain in her life and just wants to run as far away as she can from it all but when she comes across a gorgeous cowboy bent on helping her Lily can only hope. It was nice to watch the relationship grow between the two. Sparks fly right from the start but trust must be earned. I loved seeing Flint fight for Lily and her heart. Fran Lee weaves a wonderful story around Flint and Lily and endears them to the reader. Their story pulled me right in and never let me go.

Flint has been extracted from the extremely popular box set titled The Men of Calder County.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

It's been a lot of years, but I was looking for something green...

Shamrocks are nice, but they are so overused. Leprechauns would be okay, but nope...short little guys in pointy-toed shoes don't quite cut it for me.

 So maybe a nice picture of Blarney Castle in Ireland?

That's nice and green.   Or maybe a picture of Carrick Fergus Castle?

Hey...some of these castles are up for sale. Got a couple million pounds sterling? And you don't have to mow the lawns...they come complete with hungry sheep.

So enjoy wearin' the green...and have yerself a wonderful St. Paddy's Day.

Blogger has new rules about "nudity"...

So covers like this probably won't be allowed...

I'm not completely sure if the bare butt cheeks would be considered "more nude" than the hot naked male I may have to "censor" some of my covers.

Is this better?
 Nipples and derrieres might be disallowed...butt I guess I will have to wait and see?  Right?

Have a wonderful weekend!

This blog is dying from lack of interest...

Thanks to those of you who stayed with me. I might post something from time to time, but only for my own pleasure.  Take care.

Free read Tuesdays coming up...

Which book in this anthology would you like to have me begin with?

Double Your Pleasure

Helen is working a latte shop just outside an upscale high-rise apartment in Manhattan. Switching shifts with her boss, she finds herself face-to-face with the most delicious, maddeningly arrogant men she’s ever met. He’s hot and sexy as hell, but the fact that he can’t lift his eyes from her chest is a strike against him.  Too bad he’s such a jerk…she would have loved to get to know him better. But as soon as he’s out of sight, she turns around to find another one, just like him, but this one looks her in the eye, and has a smile that takes her breath away. Dear Lord, there are two of them?

Jason and Jonathon Blackstone have the same taste in clothes, cars and women. Identical twins, they often trade clothes…and sometimes they even share their women. Jon may have seen her first, but Jace intends to be the man who gets her. Unfortunately, he may just end up having to share again, since the sexy coffee girl seems to want them both.

Her Own Set of Rules

Bored with her sex life with a husband she still loves, but who has the Saturday-night, three-minute orgasm—his—down to a fine art, Haley takes the first step on a journey of sexual discovery when Josh, younger brother of her closest friend, expresses a decidedly carnal interest in her. The result is more than she imagined in her raunchiest fantasies.

Josh has had a crush on Haley since he was a kid, gangly and too damn tall for his weight. But he isn’t a kid anymore, and he grew into his six foot five inches, plus some. He’s come back home for one thing only—for a shot at the girl he fell for when he was too damn young to do much about it.

But Harry’s not done with his wife—not when he finds out that inside that prim, repressed shell, she’s been hiding the sexual temptress he’s always hungered for. Now all Haley has to do is ask, and two men are ready to give her everything she wants.

You have to leave me a comment and tell me which story you want me to start posting here every Tuesday...

If nobody states their preference, Free Read Tuesdays are off the's up to my readers...

Tell me what you want to see on this blog. I've been sorta flying blind for a long time, since nobody posts comment to let me know what they prefer to see here. I have been told that people do come and read, but just don't post a comment. And I am not one who goes onto big Yahoo Loops and begs for people to come over and read. 

I supposedly have 107 followers on this blog, and only about three of them let me know they have read my blog. I have been mulling over just dumping this blog completely, and only posting to Facebook, but I was told by blog members that they really do come to read. So if you really do come to read, and you want this blog to continue, now is the time to let me know.

Pick one of the books in the Broken Rules anthology, and I will post two chapters of that book every Tuesday.  
If nobody speaks up, that will be my answer.

To those of you who have stuck with me since this blog began in 2009, I really have appreciated your continued loyalty. For those who joined from our acquaintance on Facebook, I thank you for coming over. For those who have actually taken a moment to comment, my deepest gratitude. It is always good to know that readers do appreciate the efforts authors go to when they attempt to share with their readers.

So let me know...even if you have already read these books, and want something different. Heck...who knows?  If you are the only one who comments, and you ask for a difference read, you just might get your wish. :)

Half-price sale on books at Ellora's Cave!

Now 50% off at Ellora's Cave

Now 50% off at Ellora's Cave

Now 50% off at Ellora's Cave

Now 50% off at Ellora's Cave

Those of you who have not purchased my older books are in luck...because Ellora's Cave has reduced the prices on many of our older releases by 50%! 

Of course, Amazon and other third party sellers have also reduced the prices...but I actually get a better share of the cover price when readers buy my books from my publisher...and you end up paying less buying from Ellora's Cave.

So if you want to assure an author that they will get a better deal, don't buy from Amazon. Amazon gets a bigger cut of the pie than the publisher or the author. Even those of us who have done self-pubbed books with Kindle are getting shafted by the company that cuts author profits by offering our books for free under the Kindle Unlimited plan...some authors have lost close to 75% of their royalties by agreeing to Kindle Unlimited. 

Writing is a real job. Having someone undercut what little profit we manage to get with all the competition out there makes it difficult for authors to keep working hard to give our fans great books.

Many of us started self-publication with Kindle because we wanted more than a minor cut of the pie. But after the first couple of years of everything going great, Amazon started throwing more monkey-wrenches into the works. To be guaranteed the wide-spread public recognition afforded by Amazon's world-wide audience, authors had to give up more and more of their share of the pie. 

So if you want to check out the Ellora's Cave website and look for great bargains, please do!  Buying direct from the publisher assures you the lowest available prices, and assures that your favorite authors can continue to bring you more of what you want to see.
