Stagecoach Inn–A Ghost of a Chance at Love

Every year until my mother died, we would visit old Salado, Texas and I always thought: what if I stayed overnight at the historic Stagecoach Inn, back then called The Shady Villa Inn, and woke to the old town, the dirt roads, the original Salado, Texas? Forget using your car. Horseback, buggies, or stagecoach were the only means of travel.

But it wouldn’t be fun to just wake up there! Nope–first of all, I write romantic suspense, so waking up to a hot rancher, now that’s more like it. Yep. He’s in her bed. Wait, no, she’s in his bed! Because when he went to sleep and she went to sleep, they were in different time periods. So. Much. Fun.

See? Just What If something and you never know where you might end up!

A GHOST OF A CHANCE AT LOVE 

Time travel western romance.

The past clashes with the present, and one woman finds herself fighting for her own identity in the past so that she can have a future with the man she loves–but with her ancestor’s hold over her–Lisa Welsh and Jack Stanton only have a ghost of a chance at love. 

Lisa Welsh only wishes to leave a messy divorce behind for a couple of days stay in Salado, Texas, but wakes to nightmares and a cowboy in her bed, and she has no earthly idea how he got there. But the situation gets worse when she wakes in the morning and learns she’s living in 19th Century Salado. Even more worrisome is the tall dark stranger and everyone else in town believes she’s some woman named Josephine Rogers. Only she’s supposed to be dead.

Jack Stanton can’t believe the clerk gave him an occupied room at the Shady Villa Inn, but worse, he was ready to ravage the woman in that bed—until he realized his mistake. Now the woman he thinks is Josephine, claims to be some other woman—and though he could never abide by Josephine’s fickle ways, this Lisa Welsh intrigues him like no other. Still, everybody in town believes her to be Josephine, and he steps in to help her find her way back home.

Murder, mystery, ties to family roots in the past, embezzlement and murder in the present, and a man she can’t get off her mind no matter what century it is, Lisa has no choice. She must solve the mysteries and face the troubles in her world and Jack’s or they will never be free to share the love that binds them across the ages.

I’ve always loved the old west, time-travels, ghost stories, and historicals. And when a book calls to you?

You gotta do what you gotta do.

Off to work on another interview, and the revised synopsis for Flight of the White Wolf, and then back to Bounty Hunter Gets Her Wolf. 74,000 words to go!

Have a wonderful day down memory lane. 🙂

Rescued Flowers

Sometimes rescuing flowers from garden centers works. Sometimes it doesn’t. Even though these gerbera daisies are beautiful, most of them were looking really bad. They’re the prettiest big flowers, and the other that I had gotten last year (much bigger size in red) never died back, and flowered from late winter to late fall. It’s flowering happily now.

The lavender azaleas’ flowers won’t last much longer and I love purple flowers, so I picked two of them up at half price, though I’d like to get some that are thrice blooming. Those are nearly 10 times the price of these. So maybe next year.

I’m working on The Bounty Hunter Gets Her Wolf now, this is Sarandon Silver’s story. I’ll have to turn in the synopsis soon, so hoping to get a head start on it so that when I write the synopsis, it will work for this book. 74,000 words to go!

My one neighbor works on his garden all the time, so I have to keep up with the Jones’s. My neighbor across the street makes a concerted effort too. I keep adding perennial flowers, hoping they’ll expand and take over, but last year I had just moved in, so it’s a work in progress.

Then yesterday, my other next-door neighbor was planting flowers (they’re new, and the other before them didn’t plant flowers). Oh no! Now I have to redouble my efforts. lol I have two Jones’s to keep up with. And you know what? That’s nice. Pretty landscapes.

sky pencil holly tanner checking out manure 900 005

I planted more of the sky pencil holly yesterday when it was cooler in the morning. It’s getting so hot and muggy in the afternoons already. Here, Tanner is checking out the manure compost soil, wondering who was scent-marking his yard! I still have to plant 9 more holly to reach the end of the fence.

Off to work. Another beautifully foggy morning.

Practice Makes Perfect…or…

At least better!

My first portrait pictures were blurry and awful. So I’m getting better at this. We wanted to take the photos with a pretty backdrop. My daughter is due any day now. So this was a last chance to take pictures with Mommy and Daddy before baby is born.

We walked around the Otter Pound, the name I’ve given it since that’s where I captured pictures of the 3 otters before. I’ve seen pictures of couples in the woods, so there are some woods near this, which I hope they leave like it is! It was perfect for pictures. The sun was setting, and my son-in-law had just gotten off from work. It was hot and muggy, but perfect as far as not being cold, rainy, and the bugs weren’t bad. They will be.

Every spam call I get, I think this is it! Well, it will be soon!

And remember that with anything, practice makes perfect. Or…better.

Have a perfect day!

Flowers and Fog

anemone oil painting 900 030

An anemone in oil paint. The leaves to the upper left hand corner is a miniature rose bush. The anemones didn’t come up last year, so I figured they didn’t make it, so I almost planted a rosebush on top of them. Whoops. 🙂 ❤

knockout drift, peach 900 028

I’m more into purple and red flowers, but yellow brighten purple and red, and when I found these peach, I totally loved how they had multiple colors on the rosebush. This is Peach Knockout Drift. And yellow Asian lily.

Asian Lily 900 016

And a cool, spooky fog.

That’s it! Back to proofing print for Galaxy Warrior!

Have a wonderful day!

One of the Silver Town wolves’ stories.

I finished most of my promo blogs for Between a Wolf and a Hard Place–coming April 4th! Another Silver Wolf tale. Need to finish one more of the promo blogs this morning, taxes are done, Dreaming of the White Wolf Christmas edits are done, Flight of the White Wolf is with beta readers, and that means????

Next up is Sarandon Silver’s story. So I need to figure out what I’m going to write on that one. 🙂  And I need to proof Galaxy Warrior’s print book. My daughter is due any day now and so I thought while I’m waiting on her to have the baby, it would make for a great time to proof the book. Or not. 🙂

But in the meantime, I wanted to share the sale price on Alpha Wolf Need Not Apply, the book normally selling for $7.99.

And here are some pictures I took of flowers I’ve planted or are coming back from last year.

So I was taking pictures of fog this morning before I jump on the promo blog this morning. Hope you have a flower-filled day!  Mine is cool beans foggy.

Wearing Green!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Yes, I have several Irish ancestors, Scottish, Viking, English, German, Welsh, French, Canadian–so just a melting pot of all good.

When I was in school, I was proud to wear the green, but it was a necessity also, if you didn’t want to get pinched!

So here’s to loving green. I love green in the landscape, makes me feel connected, dreamy, at peace.
