ALOHA COWBOY (Island Cowboy #1) Available for Preorder!

Aloha Cowboy is now available for Pre-order.

This is the first book in the Island Cowboy series featuring Hailey Pennington's brothers and best friend as seen in Dillon's Dare.

First up is her middle brother, Cordell. He's the most easy-going of the bunch and a bit of a workaholic. Hailey has sent him to the island of Momi in Hawaii to check out The Puanani resort as a possible venue for her wedding. He's pretty sure he'll get bored, but that's not what all.

Aloha Cowboy will release on August 22nd. I hope you enjoy.

Always, Lexi

Sometimes being a Pennington can be a disadvantage.
Cordell Pennington considers himself a simple cowboy and he doesn’t want to be in Hawaii. He doesn’t even want to be on vacation, until he meets Leah Pennington, the manager of The Puanani Resort. What intrigues him is not that they have the same last name or that they both hail from Arizona. It’s her habit of vacillating between a professional façade and her personal self that has him taking notice.
Leah’s breathless moment at seeing a cowboy at the reception desk is as much caused by concern as excitement. Upon meeting Cord, she’s happy to help him enjoy his stay, as long as it stays professional. But their constant proximity, thanks to her job, and Cord’s kindness, is taking a toll on her willpower, until she not only finds herself falling for him, but even reveals her reason for never returning to Arizona.
As Cord’s vacation draws to a close, he’s determined to convince Leah they could have a future together despite the miles that separate them. But when his own secret is revealed, the ocean between them is the least of his troubles.

Career of Evil by Rober Galbraith

Another masterpiece written by Galbraith, aka J.K. Rowling! 

Robin Ellacott, Cormoran Strike’s investigative partner, receives a body part in a box at their office.  Robin’s aghast.  Strike doesn’t like it either, but his mind immediately analyzes the situation and four names come to mind of who might have done this.  Not in agreement with Scotland yard, of course.

All the men who have a grudge against Strike.  That’s his list.

Robin wants to hide her apprehension and help with the investigation.  As more attacks happen to Robin and around the city, Strike demands she is home by dark.

Home to her fiancé who hates her job.  Career of Evil Oct 2015.jpg

So, while a tricky and twisted follow up on the murder and continuing murders happens during office hours, The heart plays tricks on Robin and Strike.

Robin’s fiancé admits to a possibly unforgiveable deed.  Robin takes time off from him while thinking about Strike after hours.  The problem is that Strike thinks about her too. 

It’s very common for the reader to cheer for the couple the reader wants to get together and stay together.  This one’s difficult.

Robin and Matt are still engaged with a huge issue at hand.  Robin adores Strike, but does it go further than that?  Strike has to force himself to keep only to business with her.  So, who gets Robin in the end?  Is it who the reader thinks will get her?  Is it who the reader wants to win? 

The end was a tear jerker and I couldn’t guess what would happen till I read it.  Another story I didn’t want to end!

Happy reading,

   Her body revved like an engine ready for the starting gun. Though she should feel embarrassed, she didn’t. Powerful was more the feeling, though from the man before her, she should feel weaker than a day old kitten. She lifted her hand and made a circle with her finger. “Turn around. I need to see everything if I’m going to pass judgement.”
   She saw more than heard his silent chuckle as he turned his back on her.
   Shootin’ sheepherders! He was just as hot and tight in the ass as he was in the front. His back muscles rippled as he looked over his shoulder.
   She swallowed hard, her belly doing flip-flops over the view of him. “You’ll do.”
   He turned back around and closed the distance in one stride. “I’ll do?”
   She forced her gaze up to meet his. “Yes.” She tried to grin, to lighten the mood, but the electrical attraction she felt wasn’t going anywhere.
   “I’ll do for what?” He eyed her seriously, all traces of humor gone.
   Good question. She didn’t have the answer. She couldn’t think with him so close, except about how much she wanted to touch his hard chest.
   “I don’t know. I better go to bed.” She started to turn but his hand came down on her shoulder.
   It wasn’t hurtful, just detaining, holding her there. “Dana.” His tone softened and her heart squeezed, a long buried need to be cared for rising up, yelling at her that this man could do it.
   She stared at him, her hope fighting with her doubt. Why would he want to care for her? Her own parents fought over who would get custody, neither wanting her. Just because he was strong and caring didn’t mean he’d want her either.
   His other hand cupped her cheek. “I like you. I find you fascinating, in a good way. Let me kiss you again.”
   It was no more than a physical want, but at that moment, with all that was happening to her, she’d take it. She gave him the slightest nod possible, but she could sense his tension ease, even as he lowered his head and his lips touched hers.
   Like at the fire station earlier, he was gentle, as if she were the most precious person in the world. Her cynical self crumbled as his tongue breached her lips and explored her mouth. He tasted of mint, and he smelled so masculine, a combination of smoke and musk.
