On the Vine
Work in progress and part of an Arkansas-based anthology with fellow Arkansas romance writers.
Fate lands dejected single-mom Ashley Sutterfield in the small town of Altus, Arkansas. She goes to work at a local cafe, and for the first time in more years than she can count, her life is drama free...until Blake Buchannan returns from a ten-year stint in the military and throws her peaceful life into a tailspin.
Fighting Blake’s advances and the kindred connection she feels expanding in her chest every second she’s in his presence, Ashley stands her ground all of one hour before a sizzling kiss sends her better judgment fleeing into the nearby Ozark Mountains.
Not everyone, however, is happy about the budding relationship. One of Blake’s crazy ex-lovers isn’t about to stand by while an "outsider" steals him away, and she’s prepared to do anything—even commit murder—to keep Ashley from claiming Blake.
