✾ Synopsis ✾



Owen Daniels lives his life eight seconds at a time. The thrill of anticipation that comes with sitting on twelve hundred pounds of untamed power is unparalleled. The adrenaline rush that floods his system when the chute opens is one of life's most unique and natural highs.

Ride eight seconds bareback on a bucking bronco — that's his life.

When Owen's stock horse, Remington's Lady, is injured midway through the rodeo circuit, he trailers her back home to Willow Bay, Alberta, to remain in the care of the local vet, Ray Brookes.

Months later, with a truck bed full of buckles, Owen comes home to collect his Lady from the man he trusted to help her recover. Only Ray happens to be short for Rayne, and Rayne happens to be a woman.

And this woman wants nothing to do with a cowboy fresh off the circuit. As far as she's concerned, he can take his buckles, boots, and spurs right back on out of her life.

Will Rayne keep them from holding on to their eight-second ride? Or will love buck out of the chute in time for a perfect score?

✿ Excerpt ✿


Shoving the last (a bit too large) bite of bran muffin into my mouth, I push out the doors that led to the clinic's driveway.

There was a dusty red pickup truck with a horse trailer hitched to the back blocking my view of the barn. Sidestepping around it, I opened the file in my hand to refresh my memory. We'd had Lady here for a little over four months, but I liked to cover all the bases with an owner before we discharged an animal from our care.

"Oh, here she is!" I heard Nora boom over the flat land.

Next was a deep and gravelly voice. "She?"

Lifting up my head, I choked on my muffin.

His butt.

That was literally all I could see. A ten-gallon, tan cowboy hat and a Wrangler-clad ass. Somewhere in between, I was pretty sure I'd skimmed over some pretty impressive muscles, but that butt...

My coughing (from my choking) must have encouraged him to turn.

I declared the front wasn't so bad either.

He stood at what I had to guess was at least six foot four and stretched across the broad expanse of his chest was a faded black T-shirt. The man looked rough, not in a bad way, but in the kind of way that made you wish you could spend a lifetime curled up in his lap. A five o'clock shadow darkened his hard jaw, and eyes as green as the summer grass watched me as I stopped a few feet from him.

"I'll be on my way," Nora muttered and disappeared across the parking lot.

The silence left in her wake made me uncomfortable so, after swallowing, I decided to fill it.

"Ray Brookes." I held out my hand to him, and he studied it.

Eventually, he slid a much larger, calloused hand into mine and squeezed. "Darlin', I've met Ray Brookes, and you sure as hell ain't him."

"h." I tugged at my hand a little as a result of the odd backhanded compliment, but it didn't budge. "I'm sorry."

"Nothin' you need to be apologizin' for."

He was rough around the edges but charming in a way that cowboys so often were. They were a legend after all, weren't they?

Hannah Rhodes has just gotten out of a long term relationship, and she isn't looking for a new man in her life.

Something about her makes him want to try, but a man can't change overnight.

Until her.

One night together changes everything. There's no going back to the way it was before.

She doesn't want to want him, but she does.

He knows he wants her, but he can't have her.

by
Anne Jolin




✾ Synopsis ✾


*** Can be read as a standalone or as part of the Rock Falls series ***

Beth Rhodes has always had a game plan. Go to college. Get the perfect job. Get the perfect guy. Get the happily ever after she's always wanted. It is just her luck that everything falls into its precise place in her life. At least it seems that way until her blueprints go up in smoke. She loses the job she loves and her prince charming is turning out to be the villain of her fairytale instead. With failures and mistakes piling up on her doorstep, she knows something has to give — or she could very well end up paying for those mistakes with her life.

Braxton Bennett is lethal, both in the courtroom and in the ring. Two sides of him constantly wage war against one another, and to keep the internal bloodshed at bay, he allows himself to indulge in his violent vice. Suit by day and brawler by night aren't easy dual lives to manage for a man of his status. The only way to do so is by following a strict set of rules — rules he won't break for anyone. But what if he already has?

On a summer night in the depths of the city, a chance encounter will turn both of their perfectly constructed worlds upside down.

Will they battle together against all odds to break Bennett’s rules? Or will Rhodes tap out to save herself before the fight is over?

Keeping King
Rock Falls #4
by
Anne Jolin




✾ Synopsis ✾


*** Can be read as a standalone or as part of the Rock Falls series ***

Peyton Callaghan is a fighter, a survivor, a warrior. When it was kill or be killed, she didn't hesitate. Now, she's the only one left standing, haunted by the ghost of a dead man and plagued with the guilt of having taken another person's life. The upheaval of her life to start over in Rock Falls has been rocky at best, her worst nightmares and wildest desires colliding with each other. Terror tortures her nightly, breeding fear inside her dreams, and in every waking moment, she fights against the lust that threatens to drown her.

Jayden King harbors secrets beneath his outward playboy demeanor. The women who warm his bed lay claim to nothing — you can't lay claim to someone who doesn't have a heart. His wit and charm are exquisite means of deflection and distraction from the turmoil roaring inside him. He's hidden in plain sight, a mask of humor keeping the sadness at bay. The only real reflections of his soul are in the artwork he creates, pieces of him muraled on the skin of others. If tattoo artists could have a calling card, the etch of pain and suffering in each design would be his. Because when the lights go out and the women he's satisfied have gone home, he's alone with every fear he refuses to face.

After suffering from a brutal attack at the hands of her roommate's stalker, Peyton is forced to live with the object of her affection. Without intention, she breathes love into his starved heart, and although the mere thought of that terrifies him, Jayden would burn the city down to keep her safe, causalities be damned.

Some people you have. Some people you hold.

She can have him. She can hold him. But can she keep King? Or is it impossible for Callaghan to keep something that was never really hers to begin with?

Saving Steele
Rock Falls #5
by
Anne Jolin




✾ Synopsis ✾


Kennedy Cross had her heart broken early in life. It wasn't someone or something who betrayed her — it was her own body. Despite it being all she's ever wanted, Kennedy will never know what it feels like to feel her baby's feet kick from the inside out. Having been pronounced infertile at only eighteen, she redirected her life the best way she could.

Eight years and a degree later, Kennedy is one of the most well-loved first-grade teachers at Rock Falls Elementary School. It doesn't matter that her college boyfriend left her because he wanted children of his own. She has twenty-two of the most gorgeous six-year-olds who adore her and she wouldn't have it any other way.

Jackson Steele deals only in extremes. He falls victim to manic episodes lasting for days, sometimes weeks at a time, sending him reeling from volatile highs to devastating lows. It's a living hell just being inside his own mind, and that hell has taken everything he's ever loved away from him. But what if, this time, it gives him something? An untimely gift from God and a brunette with legs eight miles long will bring him the most unforeseen joy but also his most challenging of tests.

What happens when circumstances of life threaten the one thing both Jackson and Kennedy love? Saving Steele from himself may prove to be too much for Cross to bear.

Hell On Heels
by
Anne Jolin




✾ Synopsis ✾


I use people. Not in a malicious way, but in the way an addict abuses their substance of choice. People are my vice — men specifically. I crave the emotional high they give me with a unique and reckless disregard for my own well-being—eagerly floating into an unsustainable euphoria, knowing full well that after every high comes an equal, if not more powerful, plummet into a devastating abyss. But like every junkie, I crawl willingly back into the arms of my demons.

Oh, the price we pay to feel loved. We'd all sell our souls to the devil himself for that. Perhaps I have already.

They say that acknowledging that you have a problem is one of the first steps to recovery. Well, in that case, my name is Charleston Smith and I have a fucking problem.

✿ The Author ✿


Hey y’all,

I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns, and driving in trucks.

I never expected to be an author. A massage therapist? Yes. Take over the family construction company? Yes. But an author? No. Writing was something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful to discover that love, and I'm truly grateful to say I've found my passion.

Since I've always been a creative person, it feels amazing to harness all of that energy and use it to tell a story I love. I enjoy incorporating bits of my real life into the stories I write. What parts are true? Hah. I'll never tell—what would be the fun in that?

If I could leave y'all with one thing, it's that life's far too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions, hold on tight to the things that inspire you, and chase your dreams relentlessly. I can promise you without a doubt that you won't regret it. I know I don't.

Mad love,
Anne Jolin
xx

✿ Excerpt ✿


"Have you heard of the term 'first world problems'? You have Google on your phone, Reece, best get acquainted with it. Man has been doing things for himself for a long time, I guess this is the way of natural selection, who can figure things out and who can't—"

Running my hand through my hair, I grip the phone tighter. "You know I only use my phone to ring, text and porn."

"Good God, I'll send someone around in a week, no doubt you will be dead from starvation or masturbatory dehydration."

I hold the phone away from my ear and yell, "Laugh it up chuckles. You'll see. I don't need any fucking help."

***

I need help.

I've walked for ten minutes, and all I've passed is more suburbia. I'm sure I've seen this same house three times. I'm ashamed to say that I'm pretty useless with my sense of direction. I can get lost just turning in a circle. The first five minutes of walking was hell. I started to sweat. My pants were clinging to my legs, and the rank stale odour of my body was blowing up wind.

The longest I've had to walk was from the door of the hotel to my waiting car on the street, or from the tarmac to the airport. I don't include the hours across the stage a night. That was fun. This is as boring as bat shit. I don't have headphones, I don't have a car, and I don't have a driver. I don't have anything that I took for granted.

The houses are all blending in, and I don't know which one's mine. I'm waiting for David to text me the address, but I know he's taking the piss. Bastard. Teasing me about first world problems. I know I sound like a whiny little bitch, but my life is in stark contrast to what it was forty-eight hours ago, and I'm struggling to adjust.

✿ The Author ✿



Josephine Traynor is very good at keeping secrets - she's been a closeted writer for years but only got brave enough last year to show her writer friend a small chunk of what she'd written.

She's a mother of two small boys and only told her husband about her book when it was completed. God knows what he thought she was doing on the computer for all those hours!

Josephine's a lover of tea and has a thing for all things vanilla. She loves a good book that makes her laugh and has heaps of character growth. Her aim is to write books that inspire, cause sore stomach muscles and have memorable characters for all the right reasons.

Josephine Traynor is not her real name. The pen name is derived from Josephine being her favourite girls name and Traynor is inspired by Will Traynor from Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. His message from that book was for everyone to be brave in this world and to make their mark. This was a huge lesson for her to get over her fear of publishing. She's doing this for her, her dream is to be a published author, what's your dream and go after it.
