Caribou Crossing #6
Susan Fox
Released Sept 29th,2015
Kensington: Zebra

With its breathtaking terrain and welcoming people, the Western town of Caribou Crossing is the perfect place for a heart to heal, and for love to blossom once more…

Since the death of her husband three years ago, young widow Sally Ryland has kept to herself and focused on her struggling business, Ryland Riding. Folks assume she’s still grieving, because Sally has never shared the truth about her abusive marriage, or the trust issues that remain. But when a sexy rodeo rider from her past turns up for a visit, he’s a reminder of the feisty woman she once was—and maybe still could be…

Ben Traynor was always attracted to Sally, but he didn’t move fast enough. Now what Sally needs is patience and gentleness. With an injury keeping him from his next rodeo, Ben has the perfect excuse to stick around and help with her chores—and her healing. And as Sally finds the courage to face her demons and open her heart again, she’ll have to decide if what she has with Ben is more than safety, gratitude, and short-term passion, but a forever love…

            Thinking about what would work best for takeout, he ordered meat loaf, mashed potatoes, and coleslaw for two. Normally, as part of his fitness regimen, he took it easy on the carbs, but women liked dessert—that was his excuse and he was sticking to it—so he also asked for a couple of slices of strawberry-rhubarb pie. “That’s to go,” he told the woman. Terry, her name tag said.
            She clipped the order slip to one of those old fashioned carousels that hung between the diner and the kitchen, then turned back to him. “How are you liking our fair town so far?”
            He figured the population was small enough, she’d know he wasn’t a local. “Looks nice, but I haven’t seen much of it. I’ve been out at Ryland Riding, visiting Sally. She’s an old friend.”
            Her dark eyebrows arched. “You’re a friend of Sally Ryland’s?” Her tone held disbelief.
            He eyed her quizzically. “Yeah. From way back. Before she got married.”
            “Huh. Didn’t know she had friends except for Dave and—” She broke off, flushing. “That sounded terrible. Sorry. It’s just, well . . . she keeps to herself, you know?”
            No friends? The Sally he’d known had been so outgoing. But then, Pete’s death had probably messed her up, not to mention left her swamped with work. “Since her husband died?”
            Terry shook her head. “I’ve never once met Sally, and she’s been here seven, eight years. I don’t know if she’s set foot in town more than a few times, and her husband wasn’t here much more often. They built Ryland Riding and it was, like, their own little world. Just the two of them.”
             “You mean, except for students and people boarding horses, right?”
            “Sure. But Sally and Pete didn’t socialize.” She took a lattice-topped fruit pie from the display case. “Seems they didn’t need anyone except each other. That’s true love for you. I guess. I mean, it’s not how me and my hubby, Jeff, back there in the kitchen, like things.” Slicing pie, she chuckled. “Well, obviously, eh, or we wouldn’t own a diner. We like being in the center of what’s going on in town.” She put two generous slices of pie into a take-out container.
            “I remember when Sally and Pete first met. It was like, bam, neither of them had eyes for anyone else.”
            “Well, I guess it stayed that way. I heard that the rare times he did come into town he’d buy flowers for Sally.” An order was up, and she went to deliver it.

            Maybe Ben had better not take flowers tonight. He didn’t want Sally thinking he was trying to compete, or compare, with Pete.

Blog tour with excerpt and #Giveaway for #Omega by @LizzyFord2010 #XpressoBookTours

Omega by Lizzy Ford
(Omega #1)
Publication date: October 25th 2015
Genres: Dystopia, Young Adult

In a modern world ruled by territorial Greek gods, the human race has been oppressed, exploited and now, nearly destroyed by the constant infighting of gods.

However, a human girl with the power of a goddess is coming of age. Alessandra is the Oracle of Delphi – the last prophesized – and bears the mark of the double omega. Soon after she turns eighteen, Alessandra is told her destiny: to step between the warring gods and the human race and save her world from certain ruin.

For the gods, her appearance marks the beginning of the end – their end. They and the Triumvirate – leaders of the human elite – who serve them will stop at nothing to preserve their power.

Alessandra emerges from the forest where she spent her life hidden from gods and men and immediately plummets into a race against time, gods, and herself to discover who and what she is in a world where everyone she meets has a hidden agenda, and those pulling the strings remain in the shadows.

Before she can determine exactly what kind of savior her world needs, she must first master her power by completing three trials devised by the Triumvirate to enslave her.

One lone girl stands between warring gods and the people she’s destined to protect, but it’s the battle to understand who she is that she must win first.
