Have you entered to win a Kindle Paperwhite yet?

What are you waiting for?

Here's an excerpt from my new book, EVER HOPEFUL:

The next few seconds moved in slow motion. As Laura watched in horror, Alec spun and shot Justin. Laura didn’t stop to think, didn’t worry about the fact that this was one of the people she’d been running from. Her only instinct was to see if she could help him. She ran to Justin where he fell and tried to stop the bleeding.
She thought she might be screaming, but she wasn’t even sure.
“Get up. Laura. I don’t have time to screw around now,” Alec said. “That shot’s going to bring people running.”
The horses were out in their pastures, but Laura could hear Red barking and growling from inside the tack room. She tried to remember if May and Josh were home to call for help. Surely they would have heard the gunshot….
But no, they had gone out earlier this morning. They wouldn’t be home for a few hours. Cade was out on the ranch. Laura was alone.
She crouched next to Justin and felt for a pulse. It wasn’t strong, but it was still there. Justin was still alive. Laura turned and stood between his prone body and Alec. “You killed him.”
Alec laughed. “No, I didn’t, Laura. You did. You pulled a gun and shot him when he tried to talk you into coming home.”
