Not sure how long it will be free, so get on it!
“Strong Enough to Love” is Eve Hill’s story. (Grace’s boss from Close Enough to Touch.) I’ve known I wanted to write this since the moment Grace met her and caught that hint of sadness in her eyes. I hope you like it! It’s an e-book only short story, but there are rumors it *might* be out in print next year. But I highly doubt the print version will be free. ;-)

I haven’t talked much about this short story, because I’ve been so busy working on the next Jackson book, but I loved writing this so much. It’s Eve Hill’s story. (Grace’s boss from Close Enough to Touch.) I’ve known I wanted to write this since the moment Grace met her and caught that hint of sadness in her eyes. I hope you like it!
…Grace was making a beeline for her from across the room, and she would definitely say Eve was being too picky. They’d had plenty of discussions on the subject. Grace was of the decided opinion that Eve was single and successful and should be reaping the rewards of that the way a single and successful man would. Eve agreed in principle. In reality, the idea left her sadly cold.
“Hey, boss man,” Grace said. “Are you chatting up the hotties?”
Eve couldn’t help her smile. What the hell. She may as well embrace the situation. “Maybe.”
Grace’s eyebrows rose in surprise. “Really?”
“I’m not completely hopeless, you know. I can pick up men and…do the hook ups, or whatever you call it.”
Grace threw back her head and laughed. “Oh, my God. You’re such a dweeb.”
“But you look hot.”
“Yeah, I took my hair out of its ponytail. Pretty sexy.”
“I’m serious,” Grace insisted. She ran her hand down Eve’s hair. “I’m glad you finally gave in to my coloring skills. You look brighter. Not just your hair, though. I’m glad you’re starting to relax a little.”
Yes, she was finally letting go. She’d fought her life for the past couple of years, white-knuckling it through a sorrow she hadn’t even earned. It wasn’t so hard anymore. It wasn’t so damn lonely. “I need to find Jenny.”

Constrained by her life as a Society widow, Lady Olivia Xavier finds escape in two unusual ways: as the owner of a successful brewery, and as a secret reader of penny dreadful Western novels. But Olivia’s beloved brewery is being threatened, and she has no ally in her fight. Until a mysterious cowboy steps out from the London fog, saving her from a terrifying brawl. Suddenly, Olivia isn’t just reading about the Wild West, she’s living it.
Colorado cowboy Will Coffin has made the long journey from his Rocky Mountain home to discover his birthright. While searching for his family, he encounters the beguiling Olivia. Will’s never met a real English lady before—certainly not one as lovely and courageous as Olivia—and he can’t resist coming to her rescue.
Olivia is powerfully drawn to the rough but honorable cowboy. She proposes a most scandalous arrangement: in exchange for helping protect her brewery, she’ll help Will find his family. Even more scandalous is that he’ll be sleeping under her roof. The entire arrangement sets Society’s tongues wagging. Meanwhile, the danger to the brewery, and Olivia herself, keeps escalating. But nothing’s as dangerous, or seductive, as the growing desire between the lady and the cowboy…
LADY X’S COWBOY received a staggering 95 from notoriously stringent Mrs. Giggles!
