For those of you who enjoyed Buttercream, here’s another delicious story about the “flower children” of the Blakemore clan.ARe; Smashwords; Amazon UK
When a massive land development deal brings together high-powered dealmaker Cypher Lawrence and latter day hippie goat herder Jacinto Blakemore the last thing either expects is an explosive attraction that leaves them desperate for more. Cypher has been assigned to broker a contract with Jacinto for the sale of his farm. Despite his laid-back demeanor Jacinto has a will of iron and is determined to hold on to his land against Cypher’s corporation.
Business considerations take a back seat as they discover a love that transcends their differences, and Jacinto’s beloved moonlit prairie is just the balm Cypher’s overextended spirit needs. They fall into a serendipitous relationship, but when corporate intrigue threatens to tear them apart there might not be enough similarities and trust to sustain their love.
Comment: I would definitely recommend this one. I have always enjoyed Holcomb's works and I'm just pleased that she's started writing Blasian stuff. Jacinto Blackemore is Vietnamese, and he's a farmer who has goats and lives in a yurt. Cypher is a city girl through and through, I loved their chemistry and the fast pace. I just wished it was longer.
Nice cover too!
