BLURB

Bridget Cooper, an assistant trainer at a small western barn, has fallen hard for horse handler and cowboy, Caden Price. Their days together are idyllic, their nights filled with torrid passion. She believes they have something special, and is stunned when she discovers him in the arms of another woman. Strong-willed and defiant, she rebuffs his attempts to contact her, and hoping time and distance will mend her broken heart, she accepts an offer from an exclusive dude ranch several hours away.

Shortly after she arrives, she is alarmed and distressed to discover that Caden is the trainer who supplies the horses. Bridget is in for a second surprise. She is unaware that Caden has a dominant, salacious side, and is a strict disciplinarian. Finding her alone and…

So I Went To The Post Office This Week…

…and came back inspired.  I’ll add this to my list of unfinished stories.

Standing in line at the post office has to be the fourth circle of hell.  Callie shifted her weight to her left foot and leaned her hip against the railing around which the line of fellow postal customers snaked.  Look, only three more back-and-forths then it’s my turn, she thought sardonically.  She frowned to herself.  Whose inner monologue is sardonic?

“Next,” called the clerk at the second station.  Everyone in line took a step forward clutching their parcels all wrapped in brown paper and packing-taped into infinity, or their very important looking overnight-air envelopes.  Callie glanced down at the peach square of paper in her hands.  We REdeliver for you! the paper promised.  She shook her head.  She wasn’t waiting for redelivery.

Another clerk called out and the line shifted again.  A sextet of antique ceiling fans whirled ineffectively over their heads as a bead of sweat trickled down her spine.  She wondered if the air conditioning was out or if the USPS was simply economizing.  Either way, you could tell it was summer in south Florida.

She made it to the turn-around and felt a bit encouraged.  Not much longer now.  She gazed at the receipt once again, her forefinger lightly tracing the address of the sender.  Sevilla.  She inhaled sharply.  She knew one person in Seville.  She couldn’t imagine what he’d sent in a parcel.

Raised voices interrupted Callie’s thoughts.  She looked up to see a well-dressed middle-aged woman standing at the third station who was shouting at the clerk.  “What do you mean, I have to get in a different line?  I’ve been standing here all day!”

“Ma’am, I don’t have the form that you need.  Would you like to get in the other line?” the clerk asked patiently.  The man was an older black gentleman with sloping shoulders and an air of resignation.  Callie idly wondered if he’d delivered mail on foot back in the day.

“Well if you won’t give me the form I guess I’ll have to!” the woman snapped as she vacated the station and toddled off to the the correct line.  Callie shook her head.  Why do people have to be such assholes?  She ran into her fair share of them as a teacher but she recalled her college days when she’d worked as a server in a busy restaurant.  People have no idea…

She found herself suddenly only two people behind the head of the line and she felt her heart begin to pound.  Finn.  She looked back at the peach scrap of paper.  After all this time.

In truth she was shocked that he’d sent anything at all.  She’d known him for all of what, fifteen days?  The flush began in the center of her being and flowed up her neck to her cheeks.  Those fifteen days had changed her irrevocably.  She could never go back to the pre-Finn Callie.

Vaguely she heard a clerk call for the next customer.  “Excuse me, ma’am?” said the guy behind her.  Callie looked up, startled.  “You’re next.”

She murmured an apology and walked to the vacant station.  The same clerk who’d had the misfortune to deal with the nasty customer surveyed her with gentle eyes.  Callie was determined to be kind, to make up for the woman who’d been so unpleasant.  She smiled broadly.  “Yes, I’m picking up a parcel.”  She presented him with the peach scrap and her driver’s license.

The man smiled kindly as he took the slip of paper and disappeared into the back.  He reemerged moments later carrying a package about the size and shape of a hardcover book.  Callie’s pulse pounded in her ears.

“Here you are, ma’am,” he said as he handed her the box.  It was lighter than she’d expected.  Her eyes zeroed in on the return address.  Finn Cooper, 54 Calle Montevideo, Sevilla, Espana. 

She smiled again and thanked the man, wished him a pleasant day, and walked out into the heat of the summer day.

“OTIS” my newest Motorcycle Club Romance, is an Amazon #1 Best Seller, and a true MUST READ

Support Indie Authors…

Scott Hildreth, Author

“OTIS”, my newest release, and a great tale of two people who get a second chance at a first love, is ranked #1 in (5) Erotica categories on Amazon, and Amazon’s #1 HOT NEW RELEASE. Additionally, it is ranked #85 out of every book in the world.

NYT Best Seller, here we come!

The success of the book is without a doubt the quality of the characters, story, and the HOTTEST sex scenes you’ll ever read. It just so happens the Hero in the book doesn’t cheat, doesn’t share his partner, and has a sexual appetite like no other. Nice for once to read a biker book with a Hero you can be proud of…

Give “OTIS” a read, and you’ll see what the hype is about. By far the most entertaining book I have ever written.

Great Romantic Reads

Continuing Luke & Bella’s Watch This Space series…

It’s summer and everybody’s ready for something to read at the beach.  I want to talk about a writer who’s work I really admire.  Maggie Carpenter writes romantic stories with a BDSM flair, emphasis on spanking.  I’ve read so many of her books I feel a bit like a stalker, but when I’m in the mood to read something I know I’m going to enjoy, I head over to Amazon and snag one I haven’t yet read.

Where do I even begin?  My first taste was The Strict British Barrister.  Brittany Carter books a solo cruise in an attempt to break out of her safe life back home, fantasizing about meeting a tall, dark stranger who’ll sweep her off her feet.  Enter Duncan Rhys-Davies, on board to finish writing his latest erotic novel under a pen name, of course, because in his other life, he’s a well respected barrister.  This is the first book of a trilogy.  Go ahead and buy them all, trust me.

After devouring this trilogy, I dove into the next one, The British Billionaire Bachelor.  It had me at the tagline, Every man’s a playboy until he meets the right woman.  Real estate agent Belle Somers is tasked with finding the right property for the particular taste of London billionaire Simon Sinclair.  Can she show him something he likes, or has he already found the object of his desire?

Next I started on her Cowboys After Dark series.  Because is there anything hotter than a cowboy with Dominant tendencies?  I think not.  My favorite so far has been Book Two in that series, The Cowboy From Down Under.  Professional photographer Emma Harrison is sent to Australia on assignment.  There she meets handsome Derrick Palmer, wealthy ranch owner and cowboy Dominant.  Can two people from opposite ends of the planet find love?
