After experiencing a humiliating breakup, twenty-two-year-old Cassandra Clarke is fresh out of college and living a simple solitary life without any intentions of pursuing love anytime soon.

When the estate next door sells, the last thing Cassandra expects is the unnerving attraction she feels for her sinfully handsome neighbor, Logan West, the young and charming single father with a playboy reputation.

It’s through Oliver, Logan’s four-year-old son, who keeps popping up in her childhood tree house, that she slowly begins to catch glimpses of the compassionate and wounded man Logan has hidden beneath his strong exterior.

Cassandra knows it’s wrong and that she’s heading for another heartbreak.

Logan will never be able to give her what she wants…love.

Excerpt:

After the scene was cleared and the crowd had disappeared, I sat on the sidewalk, leaning against a fire hydrant, feeling the weight of tonight. It was eerily quiet. I refused everyone’s offers to drive me home. I just sat there watching and waiting until I had my chance to speak with Logan.

“You okay?” My voice was so soft, nothing more than a breath in the wind.

He was leaning against a car rubbing the back of his head. He said nothing, just stared down at the patch of grass in front of him.

“You should get your head looked at. You might have a concussion,” I said louder, noticing the dried blood on his hands. Kurt had hit him pretty hard but Logan refused to go to the hospital. One of the paramedics did however manage to get a quick look after Logan made sure I got a damn near full physical. Logan was relentless and it took everything I had to prove I’d be fine. Luckily, it wasn’t a broken nose. The maniac’s fist caught more of my lip and the pressure there was already building beneath the skin.

I sighed, growing agitated, when he still didn’t answer me. “I’m sorry, but how was I to know the man was a psycho? You should have told me before watching me drink so much tonight.” The alcohol was long gone from my system between the rush of adrenaline earlier and the pain from a grown man punching me in the face. I was stone-cold sober.

“And you would have believed me?” he snapped, looking my way for only a brief second before dropping his head. I hugged my knees closer against my chest, and rested my chin on them, watching Logan shake his head in thought.

He looked at the grass, and then tipped his head back, staring at the full moon. Finally, he pushed off the car and offered a hand to help me up from the grass.

“Probably not,” I mumbled, honestly. I stood and stepped back to see his face under the glow of the street light. “But that’s your fault. You’re always hitting on me or making me feel…I don’t know…all right. You just get in my head. I never know what’s real and what’s a game.”

Our eyes locked for a long moment before he spoke. “You’re right.” He softly wiped at the blood on me cheek. “I’m sorry.”

His arm wrapped around my waist, and he helped me down the sidewalk to his car.

The ride to my house was painfully quiet. I wasn’t sure if he was angrier that I got hurt, or that I didn’t listen to him earlier and let him take me home before things got out of hand. Either way I could tell he was pissed. His hand was tight around the steering wheel, grinding into the leather.

The moment he switched off the ignition Logan was out of the car and opening my door for me. He caught me off guard, when he swooped me up in his arms and carried me to my front door.

“I can walk you know,” I said trying to climb down.

“Shut up, and unlock the door.”

Accepting defeat, I tugged the keys from my purse and reached down sliding it in the lock. Logan was definitely mad. We walked inside and he laid me on the couch and headed straight into the kitchen. The sounds of drawers and cupboards opening and closing made me stifle a laugh until I heard him place a glass on the kitchen table.

Everything became instantly quiet and it took only half a second until my posture stiffened. Shit! I left the condoms Hilary gave me on the table.

Interview with Barbara McMahon, author of The Banished Bride

Indie Book Promo is happy to welcome Barbara McMahon to the blog. She’s here to answer some of our questions and share about her book, The Banished Bride. If this book sounds like something that you would be interested in reading, please find a buy link below and pick up a copy or two.

 

IBP: Try to describe your book in one sentence.

Barbara: THE BANISHED BRIDE: Arabella was blissfully happy in her new marriage when scandal struck and she was banished to the north of England. When circumstances change, she returns to London. This time things are going to be different!

 

IBP : Tell us a little about yourself

Barbara : I have loved writing since a teenager in high school when I wrote for the school’s paper. When my children were young and napping, I began writing the kind of books I love to read—romance novels. My first book was published in 1982. Since then I’ve published more than seven dozen books. THE BANISHED BRIDE is my first foray into regency romance.

 

IBP : State a random fact about yourself that would surprise your readers

Barbara : When not writing, I volunteer twice a week at the local animal shelter. My passion beyond reading is genealogy. I’m head of the local genealogy group, and actively works with others on finding more about their family history when not working on my own.

 

IBP : Where do you get your inspiration

Barbara : I’m often asked about where I get ideas and how do I work. The ideas seem endless and spring up in without effort. I do note other writers rarely ask that question. It’s the general public that seem fascinated by the endless ideas writers have. Putting that vision to paper, however, isn’t always as easy as I’d like.

 

IBP: What is your writing day like?

Barbara : My work schedule is fairly fixed–most mornings from 8:30 until 12:30, then a break for lunch. Listening to the same CD of classical music every day, I feel a bit like Pavlov’s dog, once the music starts, the fingers begin typing. Following a general outline of the book I’m constantly surprised by the way a scene veers from the outline and take on a life of its own. Sometime the characters just know best.

 

Afternoons can be spent researching. One of the greatest things for me is Google Earth. I can go right to the location and check it out. I can’t always visit far flung locations, but I can see them on Google Earth and get a much better feel for the reality of the place.

 

IBP : What book is currently on your nightstand?

Barbara : I read a lot, but when in the composing mode of a novel, limit myself to non-fiction so not to unconsciously pick up some other writer’s writing style. Once the first draft is finished, I’m back to reading fiction—romance novels and mysteries.

 

IBP :  How can readers stay in touch?

Barbara : I’m always happy to hear from readers, via my website or directly through email barbaramcmahon@yahoo.com.   One contacted me from England a while back. We hit it off and now she’s a beta reader for new books. There are several who have been fans for years and we exchange Christmas cards each year with notes to keep us up to date with our lives.

 

IBP : What projects are you currently working on right now?

Barbara : I have started another regency historical book which I hope to have finished this summer. It’s harder for me than the contemporaries as I have to research things I wouldn’t have to in a contemporary book.

In the meantime, I have started a new mystery series, also a new direction for me. TRUSTING JAKE is the first of that series. THE MIDWIFE OF TANNER’S GAP will be coming out soon which is book two.

BarbaraMcMahon_TheBanishedBride_1400pxArabella, Countess of Waverly, was banished to the North of England four years ago by her irate husband. Falsely accused of scandalous behavior weeks into their marriage, she had no recourse but to acquiesce to his harsh decree. Now she’s come into an inheritance which will enable her to return to London.

Justin, Earl of Waverly was reported killed by Napoleon’s troops in Spain. When he returns home unexpectedly on the eve of Arabella’s return to London, the sparks fly. Scandal is one thing Justin refuses to allow taint his name.

She is determined to set up her own establishment in London. Which would feed the gossip he is trying to avoid. They strike an agreement. He will lend his countenance if she will agree to behave with propriety and assist in launching his younger sister to the ton. Justin vows he will watch her every move. Arabella cautiously agrees, determined to find a way to clear her in her husband’s eyes and prove once and for all she was innocent of the scandalous behavior he believes of her.
