Six Sentence Sunday

Happy Sunday!  If you would like to catch more talented authors, check out Six Sentence Sunday (#sixsunday).

Also check out my darker alter ego Cera duBois for six sentences from my January 2 paranormal romantic suspense release, A Hunter’s Blade (book 2 of The Hunter’s Dagger Series).

Today, I’m sharing more from Gambling On A Secret. This encounter happens in Chapter 5 and is Dylan’s third day on the job as Charli’s manger… But will it be his last? Things don’t look good.

She turned back to face him with her hands on her hips, cutting him off. “I think I should lay down one very important rule.”

He crossed his arms over his chest. “What the hell is that?”

“As long as you’re working for me, I expect you to show up sober and to stay sober the whole day you’re here.”

“And what if I don’t?”

When Charli bets everything on a secret, will she find the deck stacked against her?

Former runaway-turned heiress Charli Monroe is hiding her sordid past and planning a future in Colton, Texas. Attending the local college for a degree in social work, she intends to raise cattle on her newly purchased ranch, which she plans to open as a home for troubled teens. Only a few glitches—the Victorian mansion is crumbling, the barn needs a roof, and her oilman neighbor wants more than friendship. When she meets Dylan Quinn, Charli is willing to take a chance on the town drunk to help her rebuild the rundown ranch.

Dylan has his demons, too. The former Special Forces commander can’t get past his ex-wife’s betrayal and the botched mission that left him with much more than a bad limp. Certain the greedy oilman next door to Charli wants much more than just her heart, Dylan’s even willing to stop drinking in order to protect her.

When things get dangerous and secrets of the past are revealed, is he only looking out for his new employer, or is she the new start he so desperately needs?
