Cowboy-Sexy is offically released through The Wild Rose Press, today!
For the past three months, Amazon had the exclusive rights, but now Finn's story is available in several e-formats. If you own a Nook or an eReader other than Kindle, and were interested in reading Cowboy-Sexy, than I'm pleased to announce my sexy former Navy SEAL turned cowboy is now available for your reading pleasure!
Finn Brennan was used to his brother playing practical jokes, but this time he’d gone too far--sending him a woman as a ranch hand, and not just a woman, but a Marine.
When Lt. Camilla Walker's CO asks her to help out at his family's dude ranch until he returns from deployment, she never expected to be thrust into a mistaken engagement to his sexy, cowboy twin--a former Navy SEAL who hates the Corps.
The Corps took Finn’s father, his girlfriend and threatened his naval career. He’s worked hard for another shot at getting back to active duty and won’t let his brother’s prank interfere. The last thing he needs is the temptation of a headstrong, unyielding, hot Marine getting in the way.
New PG-13 Excerpt:
Dawn broke as they stepped out of the house. Purple, pink and orange hugged the skyline and promised a beautiful day. Finn watched Cammie adjust her backpack then glance at the gear slung over his shoulders.
“A riffle?” She stopped next to him and looked at his gun. “Boy, Navy, you really go all out.”
“You’ll thank me if we run into any mountain lions or bears.”
The Marine’s gaze shot to the trees and she frowned. “Oh, I hope not. They’re beautiful creatures. I’d hate for you to have to kill either.”
Finn stared at her a full ten seconds before he shook his head and started up the trail in a sprint. Heather wouldn’t have given a damn about the animals. What was he thinking? He nearly laughed out loud. The fashion conscious woman wouldn’t have been caught dead in the woods. Her idea of roughing it had been take-out on Saturday nights.
What was wrong with him?
His steps slowed. Comparing the two women seemed to be his new hobby. It was time he got over it.
“Pick up the pace, Navy,” the Marine commanded, brushing past.
His desire to take the lead took a back seat to Cammie’s back seat when his gaze settled on her perfect butt. Damn. The woman has a hell of a figure. His mouth watered. When she turned slightly and gave him a view of her rounded chest, he decided from now on she could take point, he preferred to be on her six.
They had been at it nearly twenty minutes when she suddenly stopped. “Hold up.”
He halted beside her. “What’s wrong?”
Rifle in hand, he immediately scanned the area for danger.
“It’s nothing like that.” She shook her head and bent enticingly over a pile of rocks. “We need to bulk up.”
He already was, and his cargo pants grew tighter when she dropped to her hands and knees before adding three large rocks to her backpack.
The woman had no idea what she did to him, which was a good thing. He didn’t need that complication. His gaze lingered on her backside. Still, he was not above enjoying the free view.
When she stood and turned to him, he snapped out of his fantasy and slid the backpack off his shoulders. Focus on the Navy, not the sexy Marine, he silently scolded, unzipping his pack to add four sizable rocks. Cammie grabbed the backpack and shook it to test the weight. Her gaze traveled over his chest and shoulders.
“I think you can handle more.” She added another before handing the pack back.
He raised a brow.
So did she. “Is there a problem, Navy?”
“No, ma’am.” He grinned, slipping the gear back onto his shoulders. “Let’s go.”
Frustration set in ten minutes later. If the trail had been wider, Finn would’ve passed the Marine off, view be damned. He needed to pick up the pace. Was she deliberately keeping it low? Better not be because of his leg. He didn’t need charity.
Swallowing a curse, he increased his speed and cut through the brush until he was in front. Time to do what he’d set out to do, increase his stamina. In the field, there would be no room for slackers. You fall behind, you could get killed.
A half hour later, he reached a clearing, Cammie surprisingly right on his heels. Admiration seeped into his thoughts. Many recruits wouldn’t have kept up. But the sexy woman was no recruit. She was a seasoned Marine, and he’d do well to remember it.
