A Special Kind of Love -Release Day! Hooray!

ASpecialKindofLove_Draft2

A divorced school teacher, estranged from her family, wants to start over. Sharon Daily moves to Gaines, Wyoming with her ten year old autistic son, Aaron. She hoped to find kindness and acceptance in this small town. She wasn’t looking for love…

Tanner West, the Fire Chief of Gaines, seems to have it all. Great job, loving family, and any woman he wants to warm his bed at night. But, Tanner has suffered too. A Native American in a white world, he longs to find love and acceptance. He is ready for more than someone to share his bed. He wants someone to share his life. And Sharon really lights his fire.

Making a life with Sharon will require A Special Kind of Love.

Excerpt:
At the sound of her car door closing, the woman turned to face Sharon and her son. She raised a hand in greeting and headed toward them, the man on her heels. The woman was young and pretty. Skin the color of café au lait and a smile that lit up her face. This had to be Tammy.

Sharon put her arm around Aaron’s shoulders and started walking toward them. For once Aaron didn’t seem to mind the contact, he was too focused on the horses. His gaze darted left and right, his eyes sparkling.

“Horses, Mama. Look at all the horses. I wanna go see.”

Sharon gripped his shoulder tighter as he tried to break away and head to the animals.

“Just a minute. You have to be patient. We need to introduce ourselves and find out if it’s okay for you to go into the barn.”

Aaron stilled, resigned to waiting.

Sharon’s attention was on the beautiful African American woman approaching. “I’m Sharon Daily, you must be Tammy, so good to meet you.”

Tammy nodded.

“Guilty as charged. Great to meet you too.” Tammy turned to Aaron extending her hand. “You must be Aaron.”

Aaron didn’t make eye contact and he failed to take her hand. But undaunted she leaned down until her face was in his line of sight, hand still extended.

“Aaron, I’m really glad to meet you.” With her face at his eye level Aaron finally registered her presence.

“Hi.” He ignored her outstretched hand.

Sharon opened her mouth to apologize, but Tammy stood up, looked her square in the eyes and gave a slight negative shake of her head. She understood. Sharon breathed a sigh of relief. Tammy gestured to the man who had been standing so quietly behind her that Sharon had failed to register his presence.

“This is Tanner West, Sharon. He’ll be helping you all out today.”

Sharon looked up into the most gorgeous face she had ever seen. Eyes like dark chocolate, deep and warm, stared out at her from a face that looked like it could have been chiseled in stone. Skin the color of burnished copper, high cheekbones, a sharp nose, full lips, and a cleft chin. How the hell had she failed to notice him before? Her heart skipped a beat and she ran her gaze down the rest of his body. He was tall, well over six feet, she would guess, with broad shoulders that tapered into a trim waist. His thighs, encased in worn denim, fit like a second skin against legs the size of tree trunks, and oh my, what lay between those thighs… Her attention snapped back to his face and she could feel the heat of a blush suffuse her skin.

Tanner cleared his throat, his dark chocolate eyes flashing with amusement and a little heat. He extended his hand. His large calloused hand engulfed her small one. A shock of sensation shot up her arm and down her body to some places she had begun to think had stopped working long ago.

“Ma’am,” he said.

What the hell was with everyone calling her ma’am here? She was beginning to feel like an old lady.

“Call me Sharon, please. It’s nice to meet you, Mr. West.”

“Well now, if I’m gonna call you Sharon, then you’re gonna have to call me Tanner.”

Their gazes locked and everything around her faded away. Feelings she had thought were lost with the defection of her ex-husband surged to the forefront. Attraction, lust, a deep loneliness, and desire to be held in those strong arms. Aaron interrupted her reverie and snapped her back to the present in a heartbeat.

“I want to see the horses, now!” he demanded.

11 minutes after midnight and A Special Kind of Love is live!
