Blurb Blitz: Love on the Wild Side by Mariah Ankenman



Love on the Wild Side
by Mariah Ankenman

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

For Elizabeth Hayworth, tiny Peak Town, Colorado is a far cry from her life in L.A., but working at her best friend’s cupcake shop makes her think things are pretty darn good. Until she’s forced to spend time with said best friend’s grumpy future brother-in-law.

Dade Denning takes the hard work of running a horse ranch seriously. What he can’t take seriously is his future sister-in-law’s flighty best friend. Lizzy is everything he’s not—flirty, outgoing, and loud. The woman just rubs him the wrong way. So why does he fantasize about rubbing her the right way?

When circumstances force the two together, sparks fly and passion ignites. But sometimes the wildest love can burn too bright and the consequences can leave a lasting impression.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Excerpt Two:

Surprised by his offer, she narrowed her eyes. Two minutes ago, he almost needed dentures because he was mad she planned on staying in town, and now he wanted to take her to some out of the way romantic waterfall?

Ha! He’s probably planning to murder me there.

“It’s a really tough hike. Think you can handle it?”

He pierced her with that ice-blue stare.

She saw the challenge in his eyes. He didn’t think she could do it. Poor city girl is going to take one hike and go running back to LA. Was that his plan? Well, he didn’t know jack squat about her.

“I’ve been walking since I was ten months old. I think I can handle it.”

His lips curled into a snide grin. “Better get some hiking boots. Those toothpicks you call shoes will break your ankle up on that trail. It can be treacherous.”

She glanced down at her black and white polka dot heels. She liked her shoes. Wait, he noticed her shoes?

That meant he liked them. Usually, a man mentioned a woman’s shoes when he was thinking about seeing her in them…and nothing else.

    1. Dade came from the Miami-Dade police department. I was watching a lot of Dexter when plotting Peak Town and I thought it'd be a fun name, lol. Denning I just picked out of a name book. Thanks for stopping by!
