Big Sky Country Book Tour and Give@way
“Still a smart-ass after all these years,” she remarked, sounding almost wistful.
“It’s a coping mechanism,” Joslyn said, only half kidding. She pushed her hair back again and regarded her friend with affection. “Thanks for doing this, Kendra—giving me a job and letting me rent the guest-house, I mean.”
Kendra straightened her elegant spine. She’d pinned her pale, silky hair up in a loose knot at her nape, and her simple jewelry—gold posts in her earlobes and one bangle bracelet gracing her right wrist—looked quietly classy. Her eyes were a pale, luminous green.
“I’ve missed you, Joss,” Kendra said, as Joslyn pulled back the other chair and sank into it. “It’s great to have you back in town…” She paused then, lowered her eyes.
“But?” Joslyn prompted gently.
“I can’t quite figure out why you’d want to be here, after what happened.” Color rose in Kendra’s cheeks, but she met Joslyn’s gaze again. “Not that any of it was your fault, of course, but-“
The coffeepot began to make sizzling noises, and a tantalizing aroma filled the air.
Guest Blog: Do you prefer Slade or Hutch?
Well, heck, that’s a hard one, because I’m crazy about both of them. Slade is the strong, silent type, physically patterned after a young Rob Lowe (I had his shirtless Vanity Fair cover framed and kept it on my desk throughout.) He’s big on honor and integrity, and he’s really gun-shy because of a love gone wrong. Hutch is strong, too, but he’s outspoken and reckless. Where Slade will examine an issue from all angles, Hutch tends to jump right in and worry about the details later. Because they’re both LLM heroes, they have certain qualities in common: they want a woman who is an equal, and a partner, they love kids, they love animals, and they will always try to do the right thing. Like “real” people, they sometimes get it wrong, despite all their good intentions. They both have a sense of humor, Slade’s being dry and understated, while Hutch’s is more wisecrack dependent. They never look for a fight, but they never run away from one, either. I’m often asked if I wish real men were like my heroes—truth be told, I think there are a lot of very fine men out there, doing their jobs, loving their women, raising their children to be good citizens.
