Best Friends in the Show Me State
They’ve always been best friends, but he’s never known about her secret fantasy…
Marlowe Glass has always been the girl next door. Responsible and organized, she is raising her orphaned niece while holding down a full-time job.
Clark Hudson knows the only woman on the planet who isn’t a man-eater is his best friend, Marlowe. She stood with him in high school and has had his back ever since his wife walked out on him to pursue a career in New York City. They’ve been best friends and neighbors forever.
When a tree falls on her house, of course he offers to allow her to live with him while her house is being fixed.
Their personalities and parenting styles don’t mix – she’s super organized with a rigid schedule and he’s very relaxed, but their years of friendship have given them insight into the other’s personality.
Maybe these best friends could fall in love, if it weren’t for the kids and the ex and the in-laws, along with the fear that they could ruin the best friendship both of them ever had.
Can they risk their life-time friendship for the chance of a life-time love?
Sold! In the Show Me State
The town outcast buys a date with Cowboy Crossing’s own A-List movie star.
Ivory Haines is the daughter of the town’s resident retired prostitute and possibly the town drunk, although her mother wasn’t entirely certain.
She resents her position in the town – and especially resents the teasing she’d been subjected to – and has vowed to show everyone that she is just as good as they are.
She can hardly believe her luck when Chandler Hudson donates a month of his time to the highest bidder at the charity auction to benefit local victims of the recent tornado damage.
Chandler wasn’t sure what he’d been expecting when he’d offered a month of his time to charity. Maybe for a young woman to buy him and make him her one-month temporary boyfriend. Possibly his brothers would buy him and work him to death for a month. Worst case would be some elderly lady purchasing him just to decorate her dinner table with his presence for a few weeks.
It never occurred to him that Ivory Haines would buy him and drag him out to her run-down, ramshackle, snake-infested bunkhouse for a month of labor on her dirt-poor farm.
But as he gets to know her and sees beyond the reputation the town has given her- undeserved – he changes his focus from one of enduring to one of ensnaring.
Can they put the past behind them and step into a bright new future…together?
