One Hell of a Ride ~ Book Tour

 

One Hell of a Ride
by Ju Ephraime
Genre: Western Historical Romance
Publisher:  ENVISION Business & Computer School Publishing
Release Date: August 3, 2017

 

 

When Joe Cariello sees the young lad, Cas, standing in the doorway of his old friend’s ranch, he has no idea his friend has just been murdered and that he’ll be viewed as the most likely suspect. He’s a drifter, not a killer. Now he’s determined to find out what happened to his old friend, and if it means working alongside Cas, he has no problem doing so. That is, until he delves deeper and realizes, everything is not as it seems.

At first, Cassie Sorrento is suspicious of the drifter, but something about him convinces her to accept the help he offers in solving her grandpa’s death. She’s so impressed with his, take charge attitude, she hires him. But she soon realizes she’s in uncharted waters with Joe, and if she’s not careful, her carefully guarded secret might be revealed.

Now Cas must decide, should she reveal her secret to Joe and take her chances or should continue with her charade and let him drift on out of her life when the job was done? This presented a challenge to Cassie, and having never been one to back down from a challenge, she does not intend to now, although she’s well aware that in this instance, she might bite off more than she can chew. Cassie realizes she’d give up everything if it means having Joe in her life, permanently. She wants to go riding with him because all things considered, riding with Joe will be, one hell of a ride!

 

 

“It will be my pleasure to teach you everything you need to know. I love kissing you, and I especially like knowing I please you.”

“You do please me,” she whispered, her eyes fixed on his lips, wanting to taste him again. She found that she loved the feel of his tongue moving inside her mouth.

ReVieW: 5 Stars

Hearts Unleashed was a clash of two broken people. John and Katie have first hand knowledge of trauma and heartbreak. Unwilling to share their pasts, they both rely on Koda. The dog that loves them both. Koda knows and they will learn that their hearts are bigger than they thought.

A heartfelt and wonderfully emotive story line and true depth to the characters made this a book a wonderful read. Tears fell and chuckles erupted while I read. Sometimes I just wanted to shake a little sense into each of them! I’m definitely glad I took the chance to read Hearts Unleashed.

Abby Knight’s promising start as a family physician is cut short by an abusive relationship. She leaves a painful past behind and trades the hustle and bustle of city living for the more sedate pace of country life.

She’s excited to join her Uncle’s family practice in Peace, Montana, and looks forward to many years working by his side.

As for relationships? Abby’s not interested. The only thing she cares about is establishing her medical practice and maybe finding a little bit of peace along the way.

However, a freak blizzard in May, quirky llamas, and a determined Montana rancher have other plans in mind.

Excerpt

“It’s beautiful here.” Abby fought against the urge to spin in a circle, arms stretched wide, taking in the scene.

Drake’s hard gaze locked on her face. “Beyond gorgeous.”

Her cheeks heated. He’d hadn’t been talking about the farm.

“Come.” He turned toward the barn.

She followed him in companionable silence broken only by the crunching of snow beneath their feet. At the barn door, he unlatched the massive doors, then put his back into sliding them on their rails until a narrow opening appeared. As she passed beside him, the heat of his breath seared her skin and made her shiver. Her breath fled as she pried her gaze from his eyes to take in the dimly lit interior of the barn.

Musk. A deep animal smell. The pungent aroma of dirt, hay, and what had to be llamas assaulted her nostrils. A low hum vibrated the air. Abby cast her gaze left and right until she realized the sound was coming from a pen to her left.

“What is that?” she asked.

Drake chuckled. “Llamas humming.”

“They hum?”

“Yes, and you should hear the males orgle.”

Had he made up that word?

“I hate to ask what an orgle is,” she said.

“Llamas hum when they’re happy. The males have a unique alarm call when they perceive danger, but when they breed, they orgle.”

“Orgle?”

“Yes, but it’s not breeding season, just the humming for right now.” His eyes crinkled at the corners. “I bet you’re dying to hear a llama orgle now aren’t you?”

He stepped close, towering over her, causing a tingle to spark in her chest and an ache to build lower down. Her entire body was painfully aware of his overwhelming presence. The timbre of his voice was both smooth and hypnotic, drugging even, because she found herself tipping back her head, her mind slipping, and her eyes closing as he leaned down.

His breath disturbed the air above her cheek, and she held still, paralyzed by what might happen next.

What Reviewers are Saying

“I love Drake and Abby!!! From the very beginning I was hooked! The only thing I didn’t like was that it ended,I wanted more!!! A great book!” Vickie, Goodreads reviewer.

“…a fast and wonderful read with all the feels.” Janice, Goodreads reviewer.

“Everyone wants a place to call home – a place where you know you belong and are needed, loved, and wanted. This story of Abby and Drake takes you on that journey… The writing is amazing and the characters are well developed. You get a little of everything in here, from steamy and sexy to sweet and tender. This is just an incredibly beautiful story that warms your heart!” JustCin, Goodreads reviewer.

From Me to You

I’m heading into West Bend WI for the second to last signing of the season! If you don’t know, and I suppose I don’t really mention it, in my day job I’m a Postmaster. Once November hits the madness descends! A whirlwind of packages and cards and Holiday stamps. My life stops and picks up again in January, lol. For those two months nothing but the career I have spent 29 years doing happens.

I’ve tried NaNoWriMo in November a few times. BUT MY LIFE IS MADNESS by then. I’ll probably try again this year, knowing it is probably futile. I don’t have the time to go to meetings and share the spirit of camaraderie while I type my fingers to the bone. I hide in corners of my house typing away while getting up early to put in a word count. Shoveling food in during lunch hoping I don’t spill on my computer. Getting home means putting dinner on the table, corralling the granddaughter (who, praise the lord! is taking to potty training like a duck to water) and hopefully putting in a bit of a word count.

I guess I’ll have to wait and see!

Come on out and meet me while I’m happy, lol. I’ll smile again in January! (Just joking! I’m so upbeat I drive people crazy, lol.)

So I’m trying to get one of my books out before then. I just don’t know which one! It all depends on who talks louder in my head.

In the mean time, enjoy my books that are available!  https://www.amazon.com/Beverly-Ovalle/e/B00BOGT8MU/

 

Character Interview – Daniel Blackhawk of She’s Everything by Sable Hunter

  1. Good afternoon, we’re here for a character interview. Introduce yourself to our audience, please.

 

Hello, Beverly, my name is Daniel Blackhawk and I’ve been called a character in my time, but I must tell you, I have no idea why you’d want to talk to me.

 

  1. Well, Daniel, you’re a character in a romance novel. Sable Hunter tells me the title of the book you’re featured in is called She’s Everything, does that sound familiar? And if so, are you the hero or the villain of the book?

 

A book? Are you kidding me? Sable put me in a book? Man, I knew she was trouble.

Hold on…let me check this out. (He gets on his phone and does a quick search.)

Well, I’ll be. (He chuckles.) Now, I know why she’s been asking all those questions. I thought she was visiting just to eat Sara’s pies.

Well, in anybody’s book, I’d be the hard-headed alpha hero. The title of this book is the title of my favorite country-western song and one that describes the feelings I have for my special girl to a T – She’s Everything. From what I can see here, my book will be the first in her Cowboy Craze Series. Knowing Sable, she spun this series off her popular Hell Yeah! world and some of those favorite characters will appear with us. I’m sure my brothers Ezekiel (Easy), Samuel, and Benjen will each have their own books. Our stories will be set in the Hill Country of Texas on our ranch, which is located at the base of Packsaddle Mountain on the banks of the Llano River. Beautiful country, you ought to come out and visit us sometimes.

 

  1. Well, thank you, Daniel, I’d love to. So, tell me, how did you and your story come to Sable’s attention?

 

Don’t tell anybody, but I’ve read some of Sable’s books and I know she’s always on the look-out for worthy heroes. There was a newspaper article about my Sara not too long ago, how she saved the life of a little boy who’d wandered out into the highway. I think that article probably got her attention and then she started nosing around. As far as worthy heroes, I hope to hell I fall into that category. I know I’ve had some things happen to me that could be described by the words – ‘what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger’, and I’d like to think I’ve learned from those things. Maybe, they made me a better man.

My brothers and I are of Native American descent, which I think appeals to Sable, she sure did ask a lot of questions. She loves to add a little bit of local color and lore to her stories and the tales told of the area around our ranch are a good mix of historical and spooky.

I know Sable loves to write about flawed heroes and characters that have a mountain to climb. I know I certainly fit that description.

 

  1. Did you give Sable a hard time when she was writing your story?

 

Well, I didn’t know she was writing the story…but I do have a tendency to be stubborn. I always try to put my loved ones first and I’ve been told I sometimes go overboard trying to protect them. I almost lost Sara forever because I tried to protect her from my problems.

 

  1. Very interesting. What do you do for a living, Daniel?

 

When I was a kid, my friends and I would play Cowboys and Indians and hint-hint, I didn’t play the cowboy role often. Now, I do. I’m a cowboy and a rancher. I share ownership of Blackhawk Ranch with my three brothers, where we raise cattle and horses. Some of the property is used to raise hay, which we bale and sell. We’ve recently bought more land to increase our holdings and we’re in the process of setting up an exotic game area of our ranch for hunting.

 

  1. Who is the love of your life?

 

That’s an easy question, the love of my life is Sara Riley. I fell in love with her from the moment I first saw her. Bam! Lovestruck. Lightning bolt. I wanted to propose before I introduced myself.

 

  1. What was the first thing you noticed about her?

 

My first glimpse of Sara occurred when she ran out into a busy highway to pluck a little child out of the path of an eighteen-wheeler. She was an angel of mercy and she certainly looked the part. I thought she was the most beautiful sight I’d ever laid eyes on and I decided at that moment that she’d be mine.

 

  1. What’s your greatest fear?

 

Before I met Sara, my greatest fear was the judgment of others. I hated to be weighed in the balance and found wanting just because of the color of my skin or my last name. Loving Sara changed that, she allowed me look at myself through her eyes.

Another issue I had to work through was my fear of failing the ones I love. Again, Sara helped me understand that true love can conquer all fears.

Now, the only thing I truly am afraid of is something happening to Sara. She’s my life.

 

  1. What’s your motto in life?

 

Hmmm, I haven’t thought much about mottos. But if I had to come up with one, I’d say its…Lightning doesn’t always strike twice, so grab onto what you want in life with both hands.

When you read the book, you’ll see what that means.

 

  1. How do the other characters in your book view you?

 

My brothers view me as their protector, their big brother, the one who helps and guides them. (He smiles and winks.) Sara views me as sexy, I hope. She also knows that I would die for her in a heartbeat, I hope I’m her hero.

And there are a couple of folks in the book who love to put me down, to remind me that there are people in the world who will always find me lacking for no reason other than I’m not like them.

 

  1. What do you think readers will find interesting about you?

 

I think the female readers will enjoying seeing how much I love Sara and what I’m willing to do to prove that love to her. They’ll also, hopefully, like my cowboy lifestyle. Living and working a ranch in Texas is an experience I wouldn’t trade for any other job in the world.

 

  1. What is the kinkiest thing you’ve ever done?

 

Oh, ha! Wow, that’s personal. Well, let me see, I’m a pretty typical American guy. I can’t say that I’m into BDSM, but I do like sex to be adventurous. I’ve been known to have sex in places like the beautiful waters at the Slab, a swimming hole on our ranch and we’ve also made love in the hay loft. And…I didn’t tell Sable this, or it would’ve ended up in the book, but I do love pie and I’ve eaten it off some pretty plates in my time, but the prettiest dish was Sara herself.

 

  1. Will we be seeing you in future books?

 

Oh, yes. Knowing Sable, she already has Benjen’s and Easy’s books in the planning stage and Sara and I will be right there, along with some McCoy friends and family.

 

  1. What makes you happy?

 

My Sara makes me happy. Just looking at her makes me smile. Like the title says, she’s my everything. My brothers also make me happy, I never want to live too far from them. I can’t wait until their all settled down and happy as we are. Sara is already pregnant and I look forward to big family celebrations. I have a sweet tooth too, so when Sara makes my favorite Almond Joy pie, she knows I’m a contented guy.

 

  1. What makes you mad?

 

Having someone threaten my family makes me furious, as Sara’s abusive ex found out in no uncertain terms. Injustice and racism angers me also, since I’ve walked in those moccasins and know how hurtful and damaging they can be.

Excerpt:

 

“See anything you like?”

Daniel chuckled. “Now, that’s a leading question if I’ve ever heard one.”

Sara flushed. “I meant pie.”

“You’ve got some great looking pies here.” He took a whiff. She smelled good too, fresh and sweet, like a summer rain. “What do you recommend?”

“What’s your favorite flavor?”

“Anything I could taste on your lips.” Daniel knew he was being forward, but once you find what you’ve been looking for, waiting seemed foolhardy.

“You’re a tease.”

When she looked up at him and smiled, her face went from pretty to heart-stopping and Daniel almost went to his knees. “Tell me your name, beautiful.”

“Sara.”

“Sara. I love it, it feels good on my lips.” She was even more beautiful up close, where he could see the emotions flit across her face and appreciate the twinkle in her sapphire blue eyes. When she offered her hand and his fingers closed over hers, a rush of energy flowed between them – electric, heated, sensual. “I’m Daniel Blackhawk and I love…” He gave her a dazzling smile. “Coconut.”

“Coconut.” She repeated inanely, hesitant to reclaim her hand. “I have an Almond Joy pie I bet you’d enjoy.” With his lips curled into a smile, he transformed from a knight in cowboy boots to an angel, one of the fallen variety who spent their time being naughty because they’d turned their back on Heaven for the privilege. She blushed at her own thoughts, knowing she was staring, hypnotized by his presence. Tingles of guilt made their way up her spine. If he knew her better, he wouldn’t want her. “Would you like to try it?”

“Yes, I would. In fact, give me the whole pie.”  When he saw another customer approaching, he knew he couldn’t wait any longer. “About the date, I was serious. I really want to spend some time with you.”

“Thank you. I’m flattered.” She wanted to accept – but she couldn’t, not until she figured out how to solve the mess she’d made of her life. “I’m afraid I can’t, I already have plans.”

“Another date? Break it.”

“No, not a date. I have to bake, this is the way I make my living.”

“I bet I’d make a good assistant, if you’d give me a chance.”

Sara chewed on her lower lip, presenting him with the pie. “Take this, on the house.” She wanted to give him something and this was all she was free to give. Hiding her scars was all she knew how to do.

Daniel accepted them, but he put money in the tip jar labeled Children’s Miracle Network. “In your honor.” He held up the to-go box. “I’ll relish every bite and I’ll see you tomorrow. I’m almost certain my…hankering for pie is not going to be satisfied anytime soon.”

Daniel moved to his truck. Yea, he was smitten. One little rejection wasn’t about to dissuade him – hell no.

His heart was set on getting to know Sara Riley a whole lot better.

Now on Kindle Unlimited! Triple D Dude Ranch

One look ignites a smolder between Dan and Blaire, one touch sparks a wildfire that burns out of control, hotter than the Texas sun.

Triple D Dude Ranch

Now on Kindle Unlimited!

By Beverly Ovalle

 

Blurb:

Blaire is a freelance photographer on assignment. She is heading home to Texas, armed with her camera to do a photo feature for the Tribune. Taking photos of the dude ranch, she gets an eyeful of an uninhibited cowboy through her lens. The summer heat of Texas has nothing on the heat he generates in her.

Dan was expecting a photographer but not the sexy urban cowgirl that arrived. He knew it was hot out, he just hadn’t expected the hot and sexy woman to make him burn the minute he caught sight of her. One look and he had to quench this fire inside.

Adult Excerpt:

She was in a white bandana halter from what he could see. Tied at her nape and waist, he could see her smooth toned back. Her hair was tied up in a pink bandana and Dan wondered how long it was. Her short denim cut off skirt gave just a peek at toned, heart shaped butt cheeks. His gaze traveled lower and he had to stifle a laugh. She had on four-inch spiked cowboy boots. Pink, no less.

Dan’s breath caught as she cursed and leaned over to pick something up off the ground. He had to wonder if she knew he was there. She took a deep breath and leaned over from her waist. He swallowed, mouth suddenly dry. Raising his binoculars he confirmed what he thought. No panties; not even the teasing peek of a thong. As she bent he had a perfect view of her ass and pussy. His cock grew, throbbing to come out and play. She either thought it was too hot for panties, or she liked to go commando. Either way Dan was appreciative.

She stretched further, spreading her legs slightly. Dan wanted to run his hands over the curve of her ass and sink into the delicate pink folds he was staring at. He stifled a grown. Her lips spread as she arched down with a groan, giving him an unrestricted view of her snatch, daring him to fill it. Her clit, which was nestled there, peeked out like it wanted to be noticed. Boy did he notice!

Dan sat there on his horse, cock aching as she moved. She twisted and turned with grace, giving Dan an eyeful. She paid no attention to her surroundings as she looked through the lens taking shots. Dan loved curves and she had them in spades. Not only did she have a world class ass and a pussy that was just begging to be fucked, but the bandana top she wore barely covered her. White, it was damp and clung to her breasts showcasing her pink nipples through the fabric. So large, they had to be triple-D’s. He swallowed.

Dan realized Mike’s warped sense of humor was why he said he had the perfect photographer. Shaking his head at Mike’s choice Dan grinned. Sending this particular bombshell with triple-D boobs to the Triple D Dude Ranch was right up his alley. Watching them quiver as she moved, Dan wanted nothing more than to latch on and suckle them until her nipples hardened and stood out. Dan groaned watching her, knowing he would have to call and thank Mike.

His jeans grew even tighter. Dan shifted on his horse, becoming more uncomfortable as he watched her. Fumbling, watching through the binoculars, he unbuttoned his Levi’s, hissing as he scraped against the denim as his cock sprang free. Letting the reins rest across his leg and making sure his horse would stay steady, he grabbed and fisted himself. Pumping, he imagined he was inside the pink glistening pussy of the wannabe cowgirl, he tightened his hand.
