2 Days Left of the 13 Days Sneak Peek Run!
The winner of a free copy of Cara Bristol’s Long Shot is….Debbie Shaw! (It was Natasha Knight, but she forgot to mention she already had it, so I drew another name). Either way, yay!!! I’ve sent you a private email and will get you your story just as soon as you email what form you prefer to read it in. 🙂
Tomorrow’s free giveaway is For Ben by Kate Richards! So when you leave your comment, unless you specify that you’ve already got this book, you’ll be automatically entered not only to win a copy of Last Dance for Cadence, but of For Ben too! Woot! As before, each of these books is a stand alone story. You don’t need to read the entire series in order to keep up with what’s going on. So if you’ve never cracked a Corbin’s Bend book before, don’t let that stop you from playing. You’re still going to enjoy this book!

She was going to tell him what to do with his forgiveness too.
“…and then it’s done, do you understand?”
He waited, as if to give her a chance to either argue or comply. Cadence couldn’t make herself do either. She said nothing and she didn’t move, not even when he hooked his hand under her elbow. When he prodded, she stood, stiff and wooden, with her pants sliding down her legs into a puddle of useless denim around her shins.
His arms came around her, drawing her in, pulling her right up until she had no choice but to lay her head upon his shoulder. He smelled good, just like his aftershave.
The ad read: “Full-time housekeeper/nanny position. Live-in preferred. References and experience required. Salary negotiable. Apply in person.”
Cadence Westmore knew she wasn’t qualified for the job, but for a paycheck and an apartment, she was determined to apply. As an ex-dancer with two bad legs and no experience with children, she expected to be turned down. What she didn’t expect was the instant attraction she felt when Corbin Bend’s resident doctor took her in his capable hands.
A widower with three boys to raise, Dr. Marcus Devon knew he needed help. But he also knew Cadence Westmore was the last person he should hire. Still he gave her the job, opening his home and his life to a woman as stubborn as she was lovely, and as determined not to need him as he was to make her his. She was her own worst enemy, pushing herself to exceed her wounded body’s physical limitations until the doctor finally stepped in to apply some good old-fashioned bare-bottom medicine. The more she rebelled, the more he took her across his knee until at last Cadence realized if she wasn’t careful, she just might lose everything all over again.
