For “Unwrapping Hank”

“Queen of the sexual tension, she makes us wait for the love scenes

. When the sex arrives it’s always hot and deliciously satisfying and in my opinion all t
he more sizzling for the delay.

“Easton masters effective and persuasive writing, her style natural and smooth. Dialogue is realistic, the story doesn’t linger inside people’s heads for too long, and the narrative grabs you until you find yourself turning pages, unwilling to stop until the very last line.”

Joyfully Jay

Suspicious Smells

 

“I’
M TELLIN’
’ you, the woman was a paragon! A saint! An angel come to Earth!” The old bulldog’s cheeks quivered with emotion. The sadness in his big brown eyes was nearly irresistible. “She fed me for ten years, handed me the choicest morsels from her own plate!”

Sheriff Lance Beaufort grounded his feet more firmly on the floor beneath the diner’s table, calling upon his patience. “I’m sure she was a wonderful woman.”

Gus blinked bleary eyes at him. “Oh, she was! I slept at the foot of her bed every night. We were never apart, except a few times a week when her daughter would take her to church, and even then she always brought me home something special to make up for it. A box of fresh peanut butter treats, perhaps. Or a slice of cake from the church potluck.”

“I know it’s a terrible loss,” Lance said.

He did know, intellectually. But he didn’t really understand. He’d never bonded with a human himself, and certainly he’d never had to survive the death of someone he was bonded to. He signaled Daisy for more coffee, ready to move the conversation along. Normally his mother transitioned the new arrivals, but she’d had a birthing to attend this morning.

“Now, Gus, we need to talk about your situation here in Mad Creek.”

“But I don’t know what to do! I never had to work a day in my life. Mother always took
care of me. And now there’s… there’s rent. And food! I should hate to starve.”
