Country Fever...Book 4
Forty-two-year-old single father Griffin Turner couldn’t have made it
through colic and calving season without his mother’s babysitting services
But just when he thinks he’s got the hardest part of the infant learning
curve licked, he gets devastating news Mom is sick. And Griffin is forced
to hire a nanny.
With nothing but twenty dollars in her pocket and her voice, Nola Brady
wants to leave small-town Wyoming to pursue her dreams in Nashville. She
answers Griffin’s ad to keep body and soul together until her big chance
arrives. Love isn’t even on her radar… until she unexpectedly falls for the
Between the sheets, they’re poetry Outside the bedroom, he inspires her to
be more woman than she ever dreamed possible, which scares her enough to

hell hath no fury like a cowboy in love… especially one with a baby on his
hip. And a ring with her name on it.
Warning: This cowboy daddy is determined to make a May/September romance

to do it.

Nola’s mind lost track of Molly’s words Everything around her vanished but
those two dark eyes pinning her down.
A movement from Molly snapped her out of it. She looked up in time to see
her sister had raised her glass in greeting to Mr. Thigh-Clenchingly Hot.
She wrapped her fingers around Molly’s arm. “What the hell are you doing?
Don’t draw his attention.”
“Why not? Have you scored in the past six months? You’ve gotta be feeling
the weight of that stare, sis. Why not invite him onto the dance floor?”
“No, I—” She glanced up to see him pul away from the wall and make his way
across the floor. “Oh f***. Now look what you’ve done!"
She tried to duck and run into the masses, but Molly hooked a boot around
her shin and sent her careening off balance. Her beer sloshed over the
floor, spattering the boots of some dancers.
“So sorry,” she mouthed, her voice lost in the stampede of boots and the
cry of appreciation as someone took the microphone for an old Hank Williams
Two long, denim-clad legs slid into her vision. She followed the lines up
up, up to the thick chest sporting the white and gray western shirt. And
hell, the fabric had a small embroidered flower design next to the pear
A man who wore embroidery was very comfortable in his skin. Not a boy. A
If she’d had any question about this, she didn’t now as she stared into his
face. Small lines framed his eyes and lips and a few threads of silver wove
through his beard.
“Wanna dance?” He offered a hand to her and she gaped at it for two
Before she could think, Molly had divested her of her beer. Then her sister
shoved her from behind, and Nola jerked forward. Taking her movement as
acceptance, Mr. Thigh-Clenchingly Hot wrapped his fingers around hers and
tugged her onto the floor.
Before she could suck in air, she was whipped into his embrace. When she
did, she filled her head with his persona musk—man and clean soap Leather.
He was smiling at her. She returned it then gave a laugh and dropped her
He leaned in. “I’m Griffin. And before you ask, this is the first dance
I’ve had in over a year. So don’t laugh at my jumbled up feet.”
How could she remain aloof to that? Everything about him charmed the
pants—or mini-skirt—right off her.
“I’m Nola.” She inhaled deeply and didn’t catch a hint of beer or whiskey
on him. “You’re not drinking tonight?”
The corner of his mouth tipped up. “Nah I’m a designated driver. Love to
help out the cause and my ma has the—” He bit off the rest of the sentence
with a shake of his head. “My ma taught me to give back to the community.”
For several heartbeats, she lost herself in his deep, chocolate gaze. God
were those golden flecks in his eyes? And the creases around each corner
enhanced the image that he perpetually squinted into the sun or smiled. Or
“Crowded in here,” she said a little breathlessly. The bodies hemming her
in tighter to Griffin were unwelcome Weren’t they?
Damn, she needed to get away from him and fast. One more upward quirk of
his mouth and she’d be wearing a wedding band and apron.

deeper, but mostly they drive the writing van. I’m along for the ride.

to her. And there is plenty of dirty-hot sex in my books. J Thanks for the
