Today I welcome fellow MuseItUp author Lorrie Unites-Struiff to the blog for a peak at her Western Romance, A HEAP OF TROUBLE.
(Isn't the cover gorgeous? I just love the way the sun makes a heart between the two of them!)
Sheriff Cole Walker is fearless, except when it comes to critters. When a runaway ringtail monkey decides to adopt Cole and won't leave, he has more woes than he can handle.
Cole has a powerful yen for the newly arrived Mattie Wells, the pretty woman who can jingle his spurs with just a smile. Mattie takes a shine to men who have pets, and she adores the monkey. So do all the town's folk – until their smaller valuables start coming up missing. But Cole has no choice but to put up with the thieving furball if he's going to win Mattie's heart.
But Mattie is holding a dark secret and refuses to get married. Cole tries every which way to make her see that she's the only woman he wants, but with cattle rustlers and a miniature thief on the loose, it's all Cole can do to find time to take her to a picnic.
Cole and his deputies, Wade and Sully, are given a month to find the thieves before Mayor Farley calls for outside gunslingers. Cole knows that'll spell disaster for the town and likely unemployment for him. Can he overcome Mattie's fears, bring the rustlers in, and teach his new unwanted furball sidekick a lesson about property rights before the town implodes?
With the help of his deputies and his unwanted sidekick Beggar, Cole must find a way to win Mattie's heart, bring the rustlers to justice, and bring peace once again to Cold Creek, Kansas.
Yep. Cole has a heap of trouble on his hands.
So, if you're looking for a western romance, with a bit of comedy, check out A HEAP OF TROUBLE.
