The Spotlight book today is TERMS OF TEMPTATION so enjoy this blurb and excerpt.
“I SWEAR, MISS CANTRELL, YOU WOULD TRY THE EVERLOVIN’ PATIENCE OF A SAINT!”
Deputy Game Warden Bram Killoran is certainly no saint, and he has wanted headstrong Kinley Cantrell since the day he first saw her outside the Paradise Saloon – backing a burly drunk three times her size up against a hitching rail and giving him a truly inspired and colorful upbraiding for mistreating his horse.
Kinley’s determination to defend herself and the animals she loves will make her Bram’s unlikely ally. They are irresistibly drawn to one another, but when her passion and spirit clash with his tangled conflict of duty and desire, not only their hearts will be in danger, but their very lives as well.
TERMS OF TEMPTATION has been awarded Readers’ Favorite 5 Stars.
“A beautiful story about life on a ranch, love of family, love for the wild, and a challenging love between two people. The descriptive and skillful way the book is written takes you back a hundred years and draws you into life on a ranch and the versatile range of characters… TERMS OF TEMPTATION is the type of book you…want to keep reading because of the way the plot is so skillfully put together and because you can easily relate to and connect with the characters.” ~ F. Nassozi, readers’ Favorite
“With her distinctive writing style, Ms. Farrelly brings the colorful characters to life. The reader will laugh and cry along with family…” ~ Jada Ryker, Author of the TAKES A DARE series
“Farrelly captures the struggles of love and romance in a fantastic way… She has… penetrated the hearts and emotions of the two lead characters…under circumstances that add to the romance. Horses, strong men, conflicts, and adventures…a daily part of western life at the turn of the century…make the reader long for that simpler time…Passionate, emotional, adventurous, TERMS OF TEMPTATION is an adventure in romance that will hold the reader spellbound…” ~ B. Howard, Readers’ Favorite
“Lorrie Farrelly writes romance and misunderstanding between two people who love each other quite well. The characterization of Kinley and Bram and other characters…felt quite realistic and it was…fun to read the developing relationship between the two. I particularly enjoyed Kinley…an independent heroine, but…feminine still when it came to trying to understand her feelings… A delight to read…The way Farrelly writes her characters makes it quite an amazing page-turner!” ~ D. Pinzon, Readers’ Favorite
Deputy Wyoming State Game Warden Bram Killoran heard the comments of the crowd as it slowly broke up and people began to wander off in twos and threes, chattering and tut-tutting all the while over Kinley Cantrell’s latest escapade:
That crazy Cantrell girl’s at it again….
Well, can’t say she don’t have some grit….
Good thing her brother Ted was here, ’cause drunk as he is, ol’ Purvis mighta got in a lucky swing an’ fair killed her….
Dunno, reckon that little bit of a thing mighta killed Purvis first, feisty as she is….
Well, I declare, she isn’t a bit like that sweet little twin of hers – and doesn’t that give a body pause….
My oldest boy, Wesley, escorted her to the Harvest Dance last fall, don’t you know, but turned out she spent the whole time bending his poor ear about bighorn sheep – or maybe it was muskrats or weasels or some other such nonsense, but can you even imagine…?
Heard she’s got pens full of grizzly cubs and wolves up at that menagerie of hers, boxes full of rattlers, too….
Ya ask me, Cap’n an’ Miz Cantrell oughta lock that one up an’ throw away the goldurn key….
Bram knew there was more than a kernel of truth in those remarks, but he couldn’t stop thinking about Kinley, dreaming about her. And he couldn’t stop wanting her. *
