Are you a city girl or a country girl? Or a combo of both? I’m actually a “county” girl. The house next door was just several yards away. I have a southern accent and was raised in a redneck town, so I understand not fitting in with the city mentality. That said, after visiting NYC many times, I understand the city mentality is different. I think, especially in the city, you have to be a survivor!
In my book, THE MAVERICK & THE MANHATTANITE, both my hero and heroine are survivors! Volunteer Lissa Roarke rolls into Rust Creek Falls Montana to help make needed changes. But Sheriff Gage Christensen is fit to be tied. Everything about Lissa seems to rub Gage the wrong way. She talks too fast, she’s too bossy, she’s just too…darned…irritating. And readers, you know what that means. It’s only a matter of time before these two squawking opposites find their way—together! But there’s a rough road ahead for Rust Creek’s sexy sheriff and his do-gooder girl. Can Big Sky and Big Apple make it past the first frost? Just how much will a city girl sacrifice for the strong arms of the law?
During the last year, I have begun to volunteer with a class of disabled children. Although this is nothing like uprooting myself to another state to help a community recover from a flood, it has enhanced my view of volunteering.
Have you ever volunteered? If so, what activity was meaningful to you? If not, how would you like to volunteer if you had the time?
One responder will receive a copy of a book from my back list!
