Since the fourth ♥ Hearts of Owyhee ♥ book is still in the plotting stage, I'm posting paragraphs from my new release, Much Ado About Mavericks.
The heroine in this book is quite a gal--she really kept me on my toes. Her name is Janelle Kathryn O'Keefe but they call her "Jake." And she's a handful! You can read about how she came into being: Western Women Wranglers at Romancing the West. Her name is Janelle Kathryn O'Keefe but they call her "Jake." And she's a handful! Here's the snippet:
“Howdy, Ben.” Marshal Hiatt didn’t even look up from his paperwork. “I thought you’d show up in a hurry.” He smirked, put down his pencil, and picked up his keys. “You probably want to see the prisoner.”
“Go to hell!” Jake called from the second cell, her hands on the bars. “The prisoner don’t want to see him.”
She had the beginnings of a shiner. Ben suppressed a smile. He’d never seen a woman with a black eye before, but from the looks of things, the poor fellow who picked a fight with her ended up in a lot worse shape. “So who threw the first punch?”
“Grady, from the Lazy B.” She cocked her head and grinned. “Didn’t do him no good, though. I busted his ugly nose and gave him a gut-ache he’ll remember for a day or two.”
The marshal chuckled. “His nose wouldn’t be so ugly if you hadn’t broke it twice before.”
♥ ♥ ♥Do you think a Boston lawyer can keep up with her?
