The British Are Coming!
Cowboy-turned-businessman Liam Murphy thought he had it all–until the teen daughter he never knew existed walks into his life, her mother close behind. Now the Wyoming bachelor must confront his first love, former London exchange student Missy Dobbs, and get answers. To start: How can he still be so attracted to this person who has seemingly betrayed him?
Missy has to ask herself the same question. Long in the dark about her child’s paternity, Missy can’t help feeling a secret thrill that Liam’s back in her life. Maybe staying in Destiny will help her daughter bond with her dad, but it is a trap for Missy’s shell-shocked heart?
While in New York City this past July to attend the 2015 Romance Writers of America® annual conference I was also celebrating a pretty special birthday (the big 5-0!) and the milestone of my thirteenth book being published!
Wanting to do something extra special to mark the occasions, and as a lover of all things vintage, I knew how to do both when I stumbled across images from a photography studio that were stunning. And what little girl hasn’t dreamed of playing fashion model for a day?
Very happy DESTINED TO BE A DAD received 4 Stars from RT Book Reviews!
When a boisterous 15-year-old Brit shows up on Liam Murphy’s doorstep announcing she’s his daughter, he’s shocked — and skeptical. This is not Missy Dobbs’ plan. Years ago, she was a foreign exchange student and she and Liam were classmates and first loves. Now, her precocious daughter can’t wait to tell him for herself: it’s a girl!
Butler delivers excitement and empathy, super Wyoming settings and great characters in this second-chance romance. Her Brit-isms are spot-on, and the formation of the new family inspiring and her handling of the delicate dynamics of this large cast is excellent.
One of things I loved best about writing THE LAST-CHANCE MAVERICK is the bucket list that my heroine, Vanessa created as a young girl with her best friend. They add more to the list as adults, especially after seeing how many items they’d managed to complete, but then…well, Vanessa is now on a mission to cross off each remaining item. And she’s decided Jonah Dalton is just the man to help her!
The front of the book shares a sneak peak, but here’s the entire list. It was fun to try to get as many of these as possible into the story!
Vanessa Brent sees Montana as a chance to find her muse, keep promises and start over after the tragic loss of her BFF. She doesn’t expect a sexy architect to open her eyes to passion and help complete her bucket list. Architect Jonah Dalton couldn’t have Rust Creek Falls fast enough when his marriage ended; now he’s back and a beautiful artist is making him think of the future.
Butler’s heartfelt tearjerker exhilarates. Her expressive narrative tells the fateful tale of her lovelorn hero and grieving, talent-blocked heroine’s rock road to love. The first kiss is sensational, the banter playful and the love scenes intense.
