It’s the quiet ones that take you by surprise.
Six Pack Ranch, Book 2
Beth Danube’s emotionally abusive husband is dead and buried. So is her heart. It’s no big deal, she has all she wants: her three little boys and a fresh start in a small Alberta town. What she doesn’t want is another man in her life—not now, maybe not ever.
After ten years of unsatisfactory, missionary-position sex, she never expected her libido to reawaken. One look at sex-in-boots Daniel Coleman in a Calgary bar, though, blows the dust off her sexuality.
Sensing an edge of desperation, even fear, beneath Beth’s come-on, Daniel finds himself giving in to the powerful urge to let his normally subdued desires run wild. The lady wants non-judgmental, non-vanilla sex? She’s got it—in and out of the bedroom.
At first, friends with blazing-hot benefits is more than enough. Then she realizes Daniel is burning away the protective fortress around her heart…and the guilty secret she dare not reveal.
Warning: One woman determined to retake control of her life, a man with the single-minded purpose of offering her—and her body—everything she needs. Inappropriate behavior in barns, change rooms, and oh-my-gawd phone sex with a cowboy.
Another great addition to “The Six Pack Ranch” novels! This book takes place during and carries on after the end of the first novel. In this story we are introduced to Beth Danube, a widowed mother of three young boys who comes to live in the spare house on the Coleman Ranch. Beth comes from an abusive past and is trying to start a new life for her and her boys. One of the main things she wants to focus on is regaining her faith in men. She meets Daniel Coleman in a bar and the two of them pretty much hit it off. They exchange numbers, but Beth ends up giving him a bad number as she was only looking for a onetime thing and not ready for an actual relationship. So you could imagine Daniel’s surprise when he finds out the woman he’s been pining over has moved into the spare house on his family’s ranch…and sleeping in his old room. Daniel is completely smitten with Beth and would like to pursue a relationship with her, but Beth is reluctant to get involved with anyone after what her husband put her through. She decides to make a deal with Daniel. She will agree to his terms of being friends, if he agrees to her terms of providing her with “non-vanilla sex”…a.k.a. friends with benefits.
There is a lot of learning and understanding in this book, which I think is one of the things that make it a great novel. Daniel is such a wonderful man and a perfect role model for Beth’s young boys. He takes to them so willing and effortlessly that it just makes your heart melt. And with Daniel’s help and patience, Beth learns to let go and be herself again. She becomes the woman she’s wanted to be for so long and it was heartwarming to see her recover from the years of abuse she endured and accept Daniel into her life. Oh yeah, and about that “non-vanilla sex”…I’d say that Daniel definitely delivers on that promise:)
I have been on a serious reading kick lately. For about the past month or so I've been reading at least two books a week...and I love it! I've found new authors that I just adore and books that I just have to tell my friends about. Are there any books that you have read lately where you find you just have to tell someone how amazing it was?

I am so wishing today was Friday! I got some big plans gor this weekend and I'm hoping they all pull through. Friday night I'm planning on pulling an all nighter to work on my book and hopefully (fingers crossed) get it done so I can send it to my editor. And Saturday night we have our good friends coming over to hang out for a while. We always have the best time with them and we are very lucky to have them as friends:) So come on weekend! Hurry up and get here already! Lol.

I had some time this weekend to do some more work to my next novel. It's going slow but its definitely getting there:) I can't wait to get it finished and published so you all can read it.
On a side note, my husband and I went out this weekend and saw "21 Jump Street". Oh. My. God. This movie was so funny and good, and to be honest I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did. If you like comedy and action then I would recommend seeing it. There was also a little surprise that I wasn't suspecting near the end, and it was really cool.
Have a great Monday everyone!

This book was pretty interesting from the first few pages. During the prologue, we are given a glimpse into a murder and then chapter one begins seventeen years later when the remains of the body are discovered. The rest of the novel surrounds the investigation and is pretty much a "who done it"...sounds kind of boring when I put it that way but it's very entertaining. I loved trying to figure out which one of the suspects actually committed the crime and was blown away when the real killer actually surfaced. I remember getting to that part, piecing it together and I literally sucked in a breath of air and said "No way!". I love it when authors keep you guessing and then hit you with a surprise like that:) This book also had a little bit of romance in it between Dana and Hud. In the beginning of the novel, Dana wants nothing to do with him because he broke her heart five years ago. But Hud is determined to prove that the circumstances that tore them apart was a set up and win Dana's heart again. At first she is able to fight off his advances but when her life is targeted she finds that having Hud around to keep her safe isn't such a bad thing. The two of them make a great couple and I was glad to see the novel end the way it did:) Like I said above, I got this novel for free from Amazon but I would have gladly paid money for it. It was a very quick and easy read (I think I read it in a day) and very hard to put down once you get into it. I'm looking forward to reading more of B.J. Daniels work.
This joke is just too cute...
A farmer drove to a neighbor’s farmhouse and knocked at the door.
A boy, about nine, opened it.
“Is your dad or mom home?” asked the farmer.
“Nope, they went to town.”
“How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?”
“Nope, he went with Mom and Dad.”
The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other and mumbling to himself.
“I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one, or I can give Dad a message,” the boy said.
“Well,” said the farmer uncomfortably, “I really wanted to talk to your Dad. It’s about your
brother Howard getting my daughter Suzy pregnant.”
The boy thought for a moment…
“You would have to talk to Dad about stud charges. I know he charges $500 for the bull and $50 for the pig, but I don’t know how much he charges for Howard.”

The weather is supposed to be SO nice this week! 60's and 70's, woo hoo! I am dying for some warmer weather. I like winter to a certain extent but once Christmas is gone I'm kind of over it, lol. We had a pretty good weekend here. My hubby and I got to do a date night on Saturday:) There is a new Longhorn Steakhouse in our area and it doesn't officially open till today, but we ate there for our date. How you may ask? Well, a woman my husband works with gave us a friends and family invitation to try it out before it opens (it was sort of like a training seminar for the employees). We got a free meal but I would have gladly paid for it because it was delicious! I can't wait to go back:) We finished off our date with a movie and then headed back home. All in all we had a very nice weekend and I got some much time with my wonderful husband. He recently got a new job and he's been working his butt off, so needless to say I haven't seen him much latley, lol. I am very lucky to have a such a hardworking man who does everything in his power to take care of his family:)

I just recently signed up for Facebook, although my page isn't quite done yet, and I'm going to be signing up for Twitter soon as well. Before I became an author I would have never even considered joining a social network. I was never on the computer and I just felt it wasn't necessary. Now I'm on the computer all the time and I do realize that all of my readers don't read my blog, so I'm hoping that this will help me keep in touch:) So here's my question to you...How important is social networking in your life?
