About Moxie Girl Musings

Moxie Girl Musings is about starting over from square one after tragedy impacted my young family. It's filled with stories of triumph, struggle, snafus, hopes, and dreams. Sometimes there will be features from other writers that I like and every so often I'll include an original short story, but normally I simply write what's on my mind at the time. Welcome to my unfiltered true-life story as I figure out this thing called life. http://www.amberleaeaston.com

Cowboys, puppies, suspense, snow in the Rockies...a perfect #Romance on #ScintillatingSunday

 She's a protected witness who can't risk being known
Her past--her identity--has been erased

and who's never ran away from a challenge
Will the secrets she hides be the death of them?
A peek inside the wildly successful romantic suspense novel, White Out, on Scintillating Sunday Romance Blog Hop

Excerpt of White Out...

She narrowed her gaze. "Know what I want to do?"

"Me?" He grabbed the flask, opened it, and took a long sip without breaking eye contact. 

She pushed away from her side of the pool, waded toward him, staying submerged up to her chin in warmth, used her hands to push his thighs apart, and slipped between them. If he wanted to have his mind blown, she could do that. Without looking away from his gaze, she snagged the flask from his fingers and took a long sip without flinching. 

His focus dropped to the curve of her breasts that floated above the surface and pressed against his chest. He dropped his hands to her hips and grinned. "And here I thought you were shy." 

"Why? Because I didn't drop to my knees the first time you said hello?" She slid a wet finger down his face and traced it across his lips.

"I've enjoyed my fair share of après ski soaks," his fingers trailed up her spine before untying the strings of her bikini, "but this isn't a hook-up. I want more than one night with you."

"Why?" She tilted her head to the side so she could see his eyes more clearly in the twilight and steam. 

"Because it's taken me months to get to this point and I'm not going back to square one." He rubbed his knuckles along the shark tattoo curving along the left side of her torso. "I like you and your special brand of crazy." 

From the back cover...

She's been erased.

As a protected witness, Brandi Simms has given up everything that made her unique to start over in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Blending into the background isn't easy, but it's vital for survival. When her handsome yet incorrigible neighbor—former Olympic skier turned cowboy—decides her aloof attitude is a challenge rather than a deterrent, she knows the only right thing to do is resist.

The secrets she hides are deadly.

Ryan Landry isn't accustomed to rejection. Three-time Olympic Gold Medalist, he's the local hero who came home to run a ranch and be near his family. The mysterious neighbor who seems content to hang out with dogs rather than humans haunts his fantasies and ignites that competitive drive that led him to the world stage.

He's not one to give up.

When her dangerous past catches up to Brandi, Ryan is determined to break through her secrets to find the truth no matter what the cost. Trapped in a whiteout blizzard with unseen threats lurking in the snow, will they get a chance to create a new beginning or will Brandi's past be the death of them?
