From Author Tracy Garrett  – COMING HOME (from the  HEARTS AND SPURS ANTHOLOGY)

 

It takes a lot of forgiveness and a few fireworks to realize that together their dreams can come true. 

Hearts and Spurs MedEXCERPT:

He watched Mary’s throat work as she battled back tears that made her blue eyes seem huge in her pale face. When she squared her shoulders and lifted her chin, he knew his time for avoiding the truth was over.

“What happened, Mr. Hawken?”

Self-loathing threatened to choke him. “I’m not sure.”

She glanced at Matt, then returned her piercing gaze to Jericho. “I don’t understand. Did it happen at night? Was it too dark for you to see?”

He gulped down the liquid in his glass and carefully set the crystal aside when he wanted to hurl it against the stone hearth. “I wasn’t there.”

“Where—”

“I was in jail.”

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. Oh Tracy. I remember when I read this for the first time, and how I just had to take a deep breath. No spoilers, but what a fantastic story this was, just from the human element, and the interaction between these characters over what happened.

    Great story.

  2. Loved your excerpt, Tracy. I’m just getting into this anthology since I’m behind on everything. I know your fantastic work and this story will be just as magnificent.
    All the best.

  3. Sorry I’m late to this party. Was in meetings from 8am until 6pm, then a business dinner. I can’t believe I missed the whole day. Thanks for dropping in, ladies! Coming Home has a special spot in my heart.

    And if you like the characters, watch for PRP’s June Anthologies–they’ll be back! 😀
