Stacey Coverstone: Third Time’s a Charm

CoverThirdTimesACharmThe second book in my Wild West Adventure Series is called Third Time’s A Charm, and it features Sabra Bennett, a fiery redhead, who flees 1882 Boston society life for wild, untamed Colorado Territory with a secret.  Upon arriving in the mountains, Sabra meets Irishman, Noah Tucker, a man of considerable charm and dizzying good looks. Tucker has spent years sailing the high seas and sampling a woman in every port, but is now settled in Gumption, Colorado, intent on raising sheep.  He immediately has thoughts of making the spirited woman his mistress—much to her displeasure.

When Jason Lord, wealthy cattleman and archenemy of Tucker, sets his sights on Sabra, an already volatile situation between the two men rages out of control.   She soon realizes that starting a new life on the run comes with problems, as does being the object of affection for more than one man. With memories of the past never far from her mind, Sabra falls for the one man she can trust with her secret, and her heart.

 Gumption is a fictional small town in Northwestern Colorado Territory.  It’s based on other towns like it that were built, practically overnight, by settlers wanting to start fresh and flocking to places where land could be bought cheap.


My character, Tucker, is one of those settlers. 


While creating a character who is handsome, sexy, and not afraid of anything or anyone, I also wanted my hero to be a man with a great sense of humor and a bigger than life personality.  One of the ways I accomplished this was to have him quoting his “dear ‘ol Da” often—sometimes to the point of driving Sabra insane.  It was fun researching Irish sayings and verses that Tucker could spout.  Here are just a few of the entertaining quotes I found (and these aren’t even ones I used in the story): 

She has a tongue that would clip a hedge.  (a gossip)

The gift of gab is only a gift for the gabber. (said of a talkative person)

If it were raining soup, he’d go out with a fork. (someone who is stupid)

He is always in the field when luck is on the road.  (of an unfortunate one)

If he’s not fishing, he’s mending his nets.  (someone who always plans carefully)

He’d steal the sugar out of your punch. (said of a clever thief)

He couldn’t hit a hole in a ladder. (regarding bad aim in shooting)

She burnt her coal and did not warm herself.  (said of a woman with a bad marriage) 

I hope you’ll enjoy this book, which also brings back the beloved characters of Josie and Grey from Outlaw Trail, Book 1 of the Wild West Adventure Series.  My novel releases April 1 with Champagne Books.

  1. Hi Pam,
    Consider yourself entered. From your mouth to God’s ears with the mucho sales. 🙂 If you win, let me know if you enjoy the story.

  2. Howdy, Stacey! Dear Ol’ Da sounds like a hoot, and your hero sounds fabulous 🙂 Loved the quotes and the name of the town. “Gumption” is very fitting for a western! Welcome to Wildflower Junction and thank you for visiting!

  3. Mornin’ Stacey!
    Good post–sounds like a great book!! Will add it along with the first book to my wish list!
    Loved the trailer—I have dibbs on Tucker, whew–that picture about stopped my heart this morning! I suppose a red head has a better chance with an Irishman though…
    The sayings were great!! I’m going to try to remember some of them. I love all those Irish sayings.
    I’m looking forward to the whole concept of the story–the Eastern woman fleeing west, Tucker’s character sounds so interesting and then the tear between the two men…can’t go wrong.

    ps–I checked out your website and signed up for the newsletter. Liked the pics on your bio…what a cute little girl you were 🙂 Dogs are beautiful as is your horse!!

  4. Mornin’ Tabitha,
    Tucker IS pretty smokin’ hot, isn’t he? As you saw on my website, I’m a redhead myself, so I HAD to make Sabra a redhead since Tucker is such a hottie.
    Thanks about the comments about my dogs and horse. I have another horse, which I should put on my website, too, and a sweet cat. Thanks for signing up for my newsletter. To answer your question about Outlaw Trail, it has just become available in paperback from my publisher, if paperback is what you prefer. One of the links on my blog takes you to the page where you can order. It will show up on Amazon soon. Right now OT is on sale as an ebook for only $3 from my publisher. My other books are also available in Kindle edition from Amazon as well. Hope that answers your question.

  5. Stacey,

    This book sounds wonderful, I can’t wait to read it. I also love the Irish sayings you posted. Couldn’t hit a hole in a ladder… ‘ll have to remember that one!


  6. Thanks, Vicki. Tucker and Sabra are both a couple of fun characters. It was a blast writing this story, so I hope everyone enjoys it.


  7. We lived in Colorado Springs for 3 years and loved it. That part of the country is truly special. THIRD TIME’S A CHARM sounds like a good story. I’ll have to find book one and catch up on the place and people of the area where it takes place.

  8. Hi Patricia,

    My critique partner moved from NY to Colorado Springs and they love it, too. Book 1 (Outlaw Trail) is on sale right now (the ebook) for only $3. You can click on the ebook link I provided in the blog and it’ll take you right to the page where you can order it. Or if you prefer paperback, the link below it will take you to that page. Thanks for stopping by today.


  9. OMG I love the cover of the book! Sounds like a really great read! I have been into westerns lately and I would love to read this one!

  10. Hi Quilt Lady,

    The artist, Trisha Fitzgerald, really is fabulous. She also did the cover for Book 1 in this series, Outlaw Trail. Westerns are the best, if I say so myself. 🙂 Good luck on winning a copy of Third Time!


  11. Stacey, just visited your website. I really like the vivid pictures. Your books sounds like a great read.

  12. Stacey, welcome back to P&P! We’re so happy to have you.

    Love the Irish sayings. There’s some really good ones. Bet they added to your story. People in the West sure enjoyed peppering their conversations with those sayings. There’s a lot of interesting ones.

    Good luck with the new book! Great cover and awesome book trailer.

  13. Thank you, Linda. I’m always happy to mingle with the fillies and friends. I appreciate your nice comments about the book trailer and cover. Part of the reason I love historical westerns is because of the language they used.


  14. Stacey,

    I must get my hands on your books. They sound so wonderful. I am definitely going to your website after I post this and join the announce only newsletter. Also please put me in the drawing.

    Have a wonderful day

    Walk in harmony,

  16. Oooh I really like the sound of your book and the characters sound really interesting! 😀
    Thanks for sharing the sayings, some are new to me…

  17. Hi Stacey! Welcome to Wildflower Junction. Everything about Third Times a Charm appeals to me…and the sayings totally fit!

    Congrats on your books…here’s a cyber-toast for a bazillion sales. And I think I will be meeting you in Bandera? (I can’t wait to get there!)

    Best wishes!

  18. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, Colleen. These Irish sayings aren’t even the ones used in my book. It was fun having my hero Tucker constantly repeating his Da’s sayings to the point of driving Sabra crazy.


  19. Hi Tanya,

    Thanks for the welcome. I love the Wildflower Junction. You’re right, we’ll be in Bandera soon and I think we’re even roomies. Can’t wait to meet you in person.


  20. Sear ol Da sounds like someone I would have loved to know! I wish that I could think of some of the old sayings my grandmother used to use. They come back to me at the oddest times but none tonight.
    Will visit your website from here and have added your book to my wish list.
