Riverview Series, Book 1

Some
call this river a taker of souls, a reaper. Sanguine is the Spanish word for
blood and God knows plenty has been spilled in its murky depths. As Tina floats
on her back, she couldn’t help but feel its more of an artery, giving life to
its limbs.
Not
everyone would agree.
Tough
as nails, Tina Foster, doesn’t have time for a relationship. She’s far too busy
running her family construction company. Tina’s take charge attitude may
intimidate some, but to others, she’s a rock, a woman with a plan. Taming a
heart this strong will take a man up for a challenge, and so far, there haven’t
been too many contenders worthy of her time.
Bo
Galloway is returning to Riverview after a rough few years. He’s home to take
care of his grandmother and prays for a chance at redemption and a fresh start.
Untrusting of most women, he doesn’t know what to think of his new boss. He
definitely didn’t expect to admire Tina Foster. Bo’s only shot at getting Tina
to notice him is to be as strong as she is.
Just
like the waters of the Sanguine, Bo and Tina must find their flow. Will the
waters sweep away their only chance at true love, or nourish a relationship as
steady as the river itself?
 
Excerpt
Four
years ago, down by the river.
Holly’s
stomach turned cartwheels as she faced Justin Meyers and held his hands.
The
minister cleared his throat and smiled. “Repeat after me. I, Holly Grace
Combs…”
“I,
Holly Grace Combs…” Thank God he said her name. She might’ve forgotten it, as
nervous as she was.
“Take
you, Justin Alexander Meyers…”
“Take
you, Justin Alexander Meyers…”
“As
my lawfully wedded husband.”
Husband.
Holy hell. Justin would be her husband; to have and to hold until death they
did part. She said the words, meant them with all her heart. Justin had been
the great love of her life since they were kids playing house together. College
had pulled them apart the last couple years, but as he repeated his vows back
to her, she knew this was the right thing to do.
The
Sanguine River flowed behind them as the preacher pronounced them man and wife
and Holly kissed her best friend since childhood in the presence of her brother
and his flavor of the week.
“Now,
y’all don’t get me wrong,” said the preacher with a wide smile that shined as
bright as the moon on the river. “I don’t mind performin’ this ceremony ‘cause
I’ve known it was comin’ since you was both runnin’ ‘round the playground at
church. But y’all might wanna tell your parents b’fore you file the actual paperwork.
I usually don’t do this without the license. But you got your witnesses present
and it’s better than you kids livin’ in sin, I guess. You’re married in God’s
eyes; that’s what counts.” He slapped Justin on the back and left with Hunter
and his girlfriend.
Holly
and Justin stayed hand-in-hand, staring at each other with matching grins, the
water flowing gently behind them. She loved his smile. She loved that special
spark in his eyes when he smiled at her. No one else saw it. Only Holly.
“We’re
married,” he whispered.
“Yeah,
seems that way.” Holly met his dark hazel eyes and bit her bottom lip.
Justin
ran his fingers over her cheek and through her hair. “I love you, Honeycomb.
Always have, always will.”
“I
love you too.” His hand cupped her cheek and she kissed his palm. “Our parents
are going to freak out.”
“I’m
not worried about it.”
She
let out a huff of air. “You never worry about anything.” Which was why she
worried about everything.
They
laughed and kissed until excitement turned into desire. Justin rented a hotel
room down the river and they didn’t come up for air until the next afternoon.
Holly
lay naked in the bed, her legs intertwined with Justin’s. “We have to get back
to reality.”
Justin
propped his head up on his elbow and frowned. “Yeah. We should tell our
parents, and our friends…and you should make sure Lance isn’t going to be an
issue.”
Chills
vanquished all the elation from the last twenty-four hours. It was time to face
her ex-boyfriend once and for all.

Grace lives in a world of alpha males and strong females where true love

Hmmm…
Guess some concepts stick around even into adulthood. Now those stories have
become a bit more complex!

tales are spun at her home in East Texas where she lives with her husband,
three kids, a couple dogs and a few fish. When not hiding behind the computer
screen you can find her camping, boating, and shopping.
