From Author Cheryl Pierson – FOUND HEARTS

 

An enemy from the past threatens Alex Cameron’s future on the day he’s set to wed mail-order bride Evie Fremont. Can they survive their wedding day?

 

Hearts and Spurs MedEXCERPT

“If you’re asking about husbandly rights, I’ve never forced a woman to bed me, or bedded one I didn’t at least carry a bit of fondness for in one way or another. If you want children between us, I’m glad to oblige, and will provide for them.”

“Well, then,” Evie said breathlessly, her heart pounding at his matter-of-fact discussion of their intimate marital duties. She was surprised at the anger that seemed to underlie her own feelings. “Well, then,” she repeated, “I have a few expectations myself. The first one has to do with alcohol. I won’t abide a drunk husband.”

“Nothing to worry over. I rarely drink, and when I do, it’s in moderation. I like to keep my wits about me, in case of trouble.”

Something about the way he said that sent a cold chill racing up Evie’s spine. “What kind of trouble are you expecting, Alex?”

When I'm not keepin' all these Fillies in line, I'm practicing my roping so I can catch me a cowboy. Me and Jasper (my mule) are two peas in a pod. Both of us are as crotchety as all get-out.

  1. “Found Hearts” has it all: a reluctant bride, a man who hides a soft heart behind a tough exterior, lovable sidekicks and darling kids, saloons, ranches, and a gunfight! How Cheryl managed to cram all that into one short romance just amazed me, but I highly recommend the story. The elements all work together to create a heartwarming tale of unexpected love in the Old West. 🙂

  2. I like this excerpt. It says so much about the hero in just a few words. He’s a decent man, but he can be dangerous if need be. I haven’t had a chance to read our anthology yet, but, oh boy, I really want to get to it now.

  3. Kathleen, you are too kind! So glad you enjoyed Found Hearts so much–I loved The Second Best Ranger in Texas, too. Well, okay. I loved all these stories. A lot. This is a fantastic collection.

  4. Sarah, you’re gonna have to get on the stick! LOL Before you know it those summer anthologies will be here! Thanks for your observation about Alex–I’m glad to see that it “happened” for you, the reader, the way I wanted it to. He does have a yearning in him for a home, but yes, he is very dangerous, too.
