Thank you so much for having me today at All I Want & More! Chance of Rain is a very sexy contemporary romance set in a fictional small town in Texas hill country. I’ve got here an exclusive excerpt with our resident diner owner, Natalie, and the Navy SEAL Sawyer who’s only in town long enough to sell his family’s farm.
Here Sawyer is in his barn, the empty barn. On the empty family farm he came home to. The whole thing is desolate and lonely, until someone else shows up. But who?
Exclusive Excerpt from Chance of Rain
The hair on his arms prickled. He squinted but could make out nothing. Still, his instincts were well honed.
Someone else was here.
Impossible. The only upside to living in his childhood house was its isolation. There should definitely not be anyone on his land, in his barn. Maybe it was a raccoon, driven inside by the storm.
A creak came from one of the heavy stall doors—unlikely to be a rodent. The barn had long been empty of any livestock. He palmed the knife he always kept in his left boot, wishing he’d thought to bring the Glock he had stashed in the closet.
It might have been the wind before, but then a twig cracked on the ground. He smelled something…sweet? God, he must have been more fucked up from his tours than he thought, because this was batshit. It smelled like warm ovens and forehead kisses—like home, except his house had never smelled like that.
A shadow separated from the stalls, and this at least he recognized. An intruder, an enemy. Though he had never lost sight of where he was, his body was strung out like in the middle of a combat mission. His vision narrowed to a tunnel. Blood pumped thick and fast through his overheated veins.
Moving silently along the wall, he circled his prey. Whoever it was stumbled into an old pile of lumber and grunted softly. Sawyer took the opening, catching the intruder off balance, pushing him face-first into the wall.
A splat sounded beside him, and the strong smell of hot cherries suffused the air.
He maintained a light grip on the slim arm he held, afraid to let go and confirm his mistake. The body had stopped moving but was breathing hard.
“Christ, Natalie. What are you doing out here?”
