Quick Silver Ranch is no Ordinary Dude Ranch
At loose ends after her best friend's wedding, Angie Davidson needs a vacation, so when the gorgeous yet aloof co-owner of the Quick Silver Ranch insists she stay to explore their sexual attraction, she agrees. Though she eagerly bows to his commanding touch in the bedroom, Jared's distant air after lovemaking sparks too many bad memories. Dare she yield to his sexy persuasion and prove he has nothing to fear or will he abandon her like everyone else in her life?
Eager to explore Angie’s vulnerable, submissive nature, Jared plans two weeks of toys and other naughty play. However, the last time he reached for a woman—mentally and physically—she rejected his dominant streak. Jared has no intention of letting Angie that close, no matter how sweetly she shivers beneath his hands.
Can two bruised hearts discover a way to make their tantalizing escape into the perfect way of life?
Here's an excerpt:
Angie drank in the feeling of his body against hers. His hardness to her softness, and part of her wanted to melt in a puddle at his feet, another part wanted to be bold and daring.
“Becca mentioned that you're closing down the ranch for a while.” Maybe a little flirting would work.
“Two weeks. There needs to be some renovations done, and the staff needs some downtime. It was a good time to do it with Tyler gone.”
“How much can be done in two weeks?” She thought back to when they were renovating the offices she now worked in, it seemed like it took months and with every little problem the workmen came to her.
“A lot, if you know how to motivate people.”
“Really?” Angie tilted her head up and fluttered her eyelashes. “And how would you do that?”
The corners of Jared's lips tilted up. “Lots of money.”
Okay, subtle flirting wasn't working with him. Her fingers trailed over his broad shoulder, to his neck, where she stroked his dark brown hair. His hand tightened on her lower back, bringing their hips together. And Angie swore she could feel his hard erection. Good, he wasn't immune to her.
She let her fingers skim from his neck, down over his shoulder blade, down his spine, over his well-defined ass, until she could rest her palm over his butt cheek. Then she squeezed it.
“Behave.” His breath brushed her ear and he swatted her ass.
“You hit me.” She couldn't believe it; he actually smacked her on the ass. Not that it hurt, but heat flowed through her body making her nipples grow harder. She’d never realized a little swat could make her so hot.
“I'll do worse if you don't behave yourself, Angie.”
“Promise?” The word was out of her mouth before she even realized it. The music ended, Jared escorted her back to the table and pulled out her chair.
His palms cupped her cheeks, tilting her face up to his. “We'll talk later.” He dropped a hard brief kiss on her lips before striding away.
Angie's heart skipped several beats while she observed Jared cross the room. She put her fingers to her lips and sank down onto the chair with her core pulsing with need and her panties wet. If he met her later, they wouldn't be talking if she had anything to say about it.
This was a fun book to write. I hope you enjoy it too.

Tell us a little about yourself:
Hi Marie, thank you so much for hosting me today. I've been writing romance for ab
out four years, and in the last year, I've fallen in love with erotic romance. Especially, cowboys. Even though I'm a city girl, I have wild fantasies about men in Stetsons and boots, and I use these daydreams to create characters and plots for my books. My first book, Chase and Seduction was released May 27 from The Wild Rose Press' Cowboy Kink line.
What do like the most and the least about writing?
I love being able to find a story in my own mind, create plot twists and character quirks, and write really hot love scenes. I like to dream up a story a
nd just let it flow onto the paper (well, laptop, actually.) And it's so much fun to go back to a story after a month or two, and say, "Did I write that? Wow!" Sometimes I surprise myself.
The only thing I don't like is that, for a writer, there is no end to what can be done. There are always blogs to frequent or write, marketing to do, Facebooking to catch up on, and the ever-present blank screen that needs filling. But it's important to take a
break, connect with family and friends, exercise, go outside, have fun. And even more important to not feel guilty about not being at your computer!
Give us a peek into your latest published work?
Country music superstar/actor Chase Tanner has yet to be denied anything–and he’s never wanted anything or anyone more than gorgeous screenplay writer Reno Linden. So when the film they are working on is finally finished, Chase decid
es to turn up the volume on seducing Reno.
Reno Linden lived a quiet, rural life until she was thrust into the Hollywood scene when her book was adapted to film. Chase Tanner is larger than life, sinfully sexy and hell-bent on getting her into bed. Skittish after a failed wedding engagement, Reno risks the plunge into Chase’s arms, and is surprised that her good girl self can keep up with bad boy Chase.
Though Chase returns to his cowboy roots often, and Reno cherishes the time spent with him on his ranch, the two find their careers pulling them in d
ifferent directions. Will their attraction survive the glitz and stress of fame?
What’s next on the writing horizon for you?
My cowgirl romance novella, One Tast of You, has finaled in the Passionate Ink’s Stroke of Midnight Contest. The winner will be announced at the Passionate Ink Party at the Romance Writers of America’s National Conference in New York City on J
une 29. Wish me luck! (Congratulations Randi)
I'm working on an outline for another book for the Cowboy Kink line, about a bull rider and a nanny. Two rather opposite occupations, requiring very different personalities.
Is there anything you want to tell readers?

Excerpt of Chase and Seduction:
Chase grabbed Reno’s arm and rushed her out of the building. As the door closed behind him, he said, “I get damn uncomfortable when women cry.”
Reno kept her head down and wiped the tears from her cheeks.
He stopped and bent to look at her face. “Aw, not you, too!”
She giggled. “It was just so touching.”
“Baby, you’re a sensitive soul.”
“Me?” She smiled. “I’m sensitive? You’re the one who did all this.” She gestured to the bar. “Singing and giving the hat off your head to people you don’t know—”
He shook his head and started walking. “It’s the least I could do. It was nothing.”
She jogged to catch up. Was he embarrassed to be caught doing something nice? He did a lot for others. She read a story about him, way back when they were casting the movie, that talked about the domestic shelters Chase sponsored. Hundreds of them in cities across the US, in honor of his mother. Lacing her fingers into his, she said, “I was proud to be with you tonight.”
He ran his hand through his hair and looked at her. “I’m glad you came with. People treat me different mostly, and it gets old.”
He unlaced their fingers and put his arm around her. “Yeah.” Helping her into the truck, he kissed her fingers. “But not anymore.” Their gazes fused, and Reno felt her chest expanding, as if her soul linked with his.
As he closed the door and walked around the hood, she whispered, “And never again, Chase."
