Today, I’m excited to share the cover reveal of Dally with you, in case you didn’t make it to the Petticoat Ball or missed it in the newsletter.
(Pendleton Petticoats, Book 8)
She’s ready to spread her wing and fly…
He’s scrambling to set down roots.
Unconventional, Dally Douglas is as likely to be found wearing her brother’s britches and riding a horse as she is dressed in lace-trimmed finery sipping tea in the parlor. With no plans to wed, she convinces her family to allow her to stay at their ranch in Oregon. Free and unfettered, she plans to remain that way, even when the town’s beloved young doctor returns home and captures both her interest and her heart.
Charismatic, handsome, and dedicated to his work, Doctor Nik Nash finally makes his way back to Pendleton. After years of studying and gaining hands-on experience, Nik is excited to bring his skills and knowledge to the place he calls home. Focused on his career, he has no time for a woman, especially not one as lively, fascinating, and enchanting as Dally Douglas.
When a freak accident brings the two of them together, their stubborn determination may cost them the chance to know true love.
Bursting with sweet romance, this tender yet lighthearted story draws readers into a world of rustic elegant charm.
Would you like a little teaser?
Repulsed by the thought of Nik Nash, Dally lifted her nose slightly. “I still think it’s preposterous for him to ride that thing. After all, he comes from a family with one of the most established ranches in the area.”
“I’d think you, of all people, sweetheart, would be tolerant of those who are slightly unconventional.” Braxton gave Dally a pointed look. “After all, you wouldn’t want him to judge you for wearing a gown like that with your old cowboy boots would you?”
Dally should have known one if not both of her parents would notice her choice of footwear. With the gown long enough to cover her toes, she vainly hoped she’d get away with wearing her comfortable boots instead of stuffing her toes into the new shoes Mama purchased for her.
At any rate, she didn’t know why everyone seemed so interested in Nik Nash. After all, she barely knew him. The last time she’d seen him, she’d only been fourteen. He’d arrived home a few days before she and her family were set return to North Carolina. The few moments she’d seen him in passing at church hardly counted as a proper visit.
However, someone like Nik Nash, someone who had no interest in raising horses or cattle, wasn’t a man who’d claim her attention — even if he was handsome and charming and had the most heart-melting smile she’d ever seen. Or, at least he had years ago.
