Today I have a special treat for you. I'm sharing a snippet from my upcoming release, ROPE A FALLING STAR, book 1 in the Triple Star Ranch series. Tom Colton is a three time bronc riding champion in Cheyenne Frontier Days, but the last bronc dropped him out of the championship running. Now he has to figure out what to do next.
Now what? He’d been on the rodeo circuit so long he hadn’t stopped to think about what he’d do when he retired. But here he sat, barreling down the highway, leaving behind a life of damn near ten years.
Shit oh dear.
Fortunately, he had the Triple Star Ranch, a three hundred acre spread on Lodgepole Creek that he shared with his father, Trip Colton. His dad would understand his need to get out. Trip had been a famous rodeo clown or bull teaser back in the day. He’d saved many a cowboy with his skills at deflection. But when he’d been gored by a rank Brahma, his body damn near shut down. It had been the scariest moment in Tom’s life aside from his mama’s death from cancer when he was three.
The wail of sirens and the flash of lights jerked Tom back to reality as he headed for home. Three firetrucks and an ambulance screamed past him as he moved over. Where the hell are they going on such a tear?
His gut sank as he caught the scent of smoke on the wind coming in his open windows and the dull glow of a fire up ahead.
Oh, shit, is the Triple Star on fire?
Uh oh, big changes ahead. ;) There are several great authors on the Weekend Writer Warriors list and in the Snippet Sunday Facebook group. A few of my favorites areCharley Descoteaux, Jeff Tsuruoka, Veronica Scott, Gem Sivad, Jessica Subject, and Iris Blobel. No blurb for this one yet, but I'm working on it. Here's the cover.
