Welcome! Check out our cover!

  Our cover artist Dara England did a great job with the cover of our co-authored story. RM and I are pleased to be on board with Evernight Publishing. :)
Over the course of the next several weeks C.R. will be visiting several blogs and at each of them she’ll be discussing different aspects of Las Vegas (it’s not all about the strip ya know ;). Why? Because she's excited about the release of ‘Wild West Weekend’ which is set just outside of Las Vegas, and also as a lead in to the EAA conference she and RM will be attending here in town in September.
     The background scene in the cover and on this blog is of the southern Nevada landscape. It was taken out at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. For more information about it, visit:  It really is a beautiful area and diverse in its views. Back in June, C.R. shared some pictures of the area on her blog. Check out the following links…
     There’s lots of hiking trails out there, mountain bike riding, horseback riding, or you can just drive the one-way loop, stop at the different vantage points and view the world around you. The LVAS ( holds events up there, allowing the public to view the night sky through their telescopes. Athletes use the loop for training runs and biking and then compete up there in races. And, if you’re into wildlife, you’ll get to see wild burros, sometimes wild horses and, if you look close enough, Desert Big Horn Sheep. Let’s not forget the bobcats and coyotes, rabbits and chipmunks, and all the creepy crawly things, too. ;)
     Here’s a peek into ‘Wild West Weekend’…
     Two people scared to love again. Two others hesitant about commitment. A weekend in Nevada will change all that.
     Bristol Ashcombe is swearing off men and taking a vacation with her friend, Cassie. Damon Dougan is packed and ready to leave the ranch for a trip, that is, until a long-legged, sexy woman steps out of a vehicle and he decides to stay. Will one sex filled weekend be enough for either of them?
     Cassie Harding travels to the Double D ranch, to meet Bristol and looks forward to seeing her old friend, Dakota. Dak’s excited when Cassie, his former sweetheart, returns. Cassie and Dakota, though they’re heating up ‘the sheets’ in and out of the bedroom, have fears about commitment after years of being single. Will they find it’s better to dance together than apart?
Excerpt ~
     Before she could take her next breath, he swept her into his arms, held her tight. “It’s been too long. We have a lot of catching up to do.”
     The top of her head rested against his collar bone. She felt his strength, loved his deep, voice. His scent of rich spices and woods after a rain with hints of leather and suede enveloped her. A comfort she hadn’t felt in ages settled in her soul. She sighed, then purred. “Yes, Dak, we do, don’t we?”
     His heart beat fast and strong beneath her ear. Lustful desire pulsed within her. Every pore in her body soaked in his vibrant male essence. The sensations she had experienced in her youth repeated. Need and want, stronger than the urge to buy a really expensive pair of heels, coiled within her, demanded she turn her head and plant her lips on his. Her nipples budded, strained against her bra under her white blouse. Her jeans had become uncomfortably tight.
     She tilted her head back, grasped the back of his and planted her lips on his mouth. Cassie kissed him with a surprising hunger, as if she had never kissed him or another man before. What shocked her on top of her own response was his. He returned her passion with his own, claiming her mouth with his tongue, silently demanding more from her with his ravishment.
