I need to thank a hundred extra people this time round… Top of my list is my little gang of hotties. David, Rach and C.J, you freaking rock my socks off. Without you three, I would have fallen flat on my face, ass in the air and stayed there. Thanks for covering the goods.

Pebbles, as always, you make my world a better place. You’re so cemented in my life I’m not sure how I managed without you before now. The blinding love and care you, your friends and family have lent to me will make me forever humble and blessed. There aren’t many people left who will take you as you are and love you unconditionally for it. This makes you one of a kind. You’ve sticky taped this bitch together until the glue sets. You jump, I jump.

My Care Bear, for your rendition of “Hopelessly Devoted” and distracting me with long-ass Skype chats on nights where I couldn’t write—thanks to you, the words came unstuck. You deserve all the love in the world, sweetheart, and I’m lucky to have you.

C.C, for your kickass words of wisdom and fun chats. Holly for all the references and sexy cowboy names. My amazing editor, Becky. Love your face off, hooker! LM Creations, for promo images and teasers, you’re out of this world crazy amazing!

My amazing yet painful minions. I love you all to the moon and back. Again, you astound me daily; I’ve not been any prouder of anything else I’ve accomplished. No matter how you drive me crazy, I can look at you while you sleep and be certain I don’t actually want to punch you in the throat.

This book was written at a time where I was lost and confused. I needed a lifeline to pull me out of the dark days. When the people who meant the most to me had hurt me or deserted me in my time of need, there was one person who stood by me though it all. For every man or woman who’s in need of a cowboy to take them away … even for a little while.



Destry is not as funny as my other books. While there are some hot steamy scenes, it's more a contemporary romance than humorous erotica. In my eyes at least. I will let y'all be the judge of that regardless. Just please keep an open mind when going in... you may giggle a time or two, but it's definitely not the same category.

I've written this book at a time in my life when I was looking for something short, sweet and light. So that's what Destry is. I do hope you enjoy him.


Pulling my car up into the drive of my perfect yard, with my perfectly straight flowerbeds and perfectly manicured grass, I parked my car and made my way inside my equally perfect house. Slipping my heels off at the door, I scooped them up as I made my way up the stairs. I needed a long soak in a bubble bath, with maybe a scented candle or two, and perhaps a glass of wine, or three. I could then relax and contemplate my apparently, perfect life.

I’d gotten off work early, and rather than stopping to do the grocery shopping like I should have, I’d come home to freshen up. Maybe I’d be lucky and get in some alone time before I had to play my part.

Just two more months and I’d officially be Mrs. Wesley Longstone. Wife to an extremely successful advertising agent. Our relationship was a complex one. We’d been together for around two years. And over the last two years, I was doing what was expected of me, rather than what was making me happy.
