Philmar likes to create stories that push the limit. A writer by day and a
dreamer by night she wants her readers to see the world in a new way.
by old movies, she likes to develop places where anything can happen and where
special moments come to life in a great read.
This is the last book in my Naked Bluff,
Texas series. It is set in 1864 when the war between the states was happening.
I plan to continue writing western historical stories, but adding a paranormal
element to the mix.
Tess Van Pelt doesn’t have time to grieve the
loss of her husband, not when the wolves are already at the door.Still, she has a lover that is willing to
help save her. He introduces her to his cousin, Reece Bristol Smith.
As a lawyer, Reece can keep the debtors at
bay. The problem or solution is he can’t keep his hands off Tess. With her
deceased husband accused of murder and the major creditor making unreasonable
demands, Reece has to secure Tess’s future in the best way he knows how.
Now, will Tess trust him and his cousin to
keep her safe or will he need to teach her a few lessons in handing over
control to him?

slight touch of gray at Reece’s temples.
“It’s nice to meet you, Mrs. Van Pelt. John
has told me a great deal about you.” Reece paused by the end of the couch and
waited for John to step out of the way before approaching.
John muttered something and left the room.
Tess stared, fighting the need to stand and
walk directly into this stranger’s arms. Could he offer her the same type of
pleasure John did? The thought had her shifting restlessly on the couch. The
image of them both making love to her at once had her squeezing her hands

undoubtedly decided you want no part of this mess after all. Gab had a diverse

gaze ran over the hard line of his jaw and settled on his lower lip. The soft
pink flesh had a wet trail from the swipe of his tongue.

In fact, she must have failed to catch more
than she thought when he rose and stepped to her. As if in a dream, he suddenly
stood directly above her with one hand on the back of the couch, the other on
the armrest. His handsome face filled her line of sight. Then he moved even
closer, and her eyelids fluttered close.
