Don't ask me how, but I managed to not only finish OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER, but I also got it formatted and uploaded about 3 AM on Nov. 23.
Actually, it was pretty funny because as I was formatting for Kindle, I received an email from a reader asking when the book would be available. I was thrilled to be able to reply that it would be for sale as soon as Kindle made it live. Around noon on Nov. 23, that happened.
Even though I had originally planned OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER to be a novella, the characters just wouldn't cooperate. The story ended up being a full-length novel. No wonder it took so long to write, huh? However, I kept the $.99 price as I promised.
Every woman makes mistakes. Meet Stormy Clarkson, haunted by the three whoppers she made that changed her life forever. Stormy is on the brink of turning fifty, and she's crushing on a younger man--totally gorgeous, sexy Sean Butler, owner of Sierra Verde Winery. Sean's been after her for six months, but she's resisted every advance. She can't risk another mistake, and Sean scares her because of the way he makes her feel.
Then, one night he kisses her. She can't forget his kiss.
Stormy learned some hard lessons from the men who wanted her for her face and her body, but not for herself. Armed with iron self-control and the desire never to risk her heart, she's determined to deny what she feels for Sean.
Sean Butler was once an interrogator for the U.S. Army. He knows a lie when he hears one, and that's all he hears in Stormy's icy refusals. Sean's smart enough to know that the only way to deal with a control freak is to make her lose control. He has a plan to do just that. The beautiful blonde had better be on her guard because he's coming for her like the U.S. Marines. To win her heart, he's prepared to: Adapt. Improvise. Overcome.
OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER is Book 1 of The Good, The Bad, and The Girly, and it contains a Linked Table of Contents and is chock full of Bonus Features.
