My first week is a snip from a WIP that I've been doing extensive hands on research for.

A Cowboy's Claim is Book 1 in the Cowboy's of Slumber Creek Series. It's a contemporary cowboy romance.

What was worse? Here stood Chance Dawson, her closest neighbor (if you can call someone a neighbor when you literally have to drive to their house to get there) who was also unexpecedly drop dead gorgeous. In this case, rumors were evidently true. Maybe not even justfully true enough.
            As she quickly made apologies for her unshowered appearance, she knew she'd have to invite him in. The counry life hospitality rule demanded it. You were always neighborly, even to complete strangers. It was a fact that Arianna was still trying to get used to.
           To her horror, she let out a groan while thinking of her huge pile of dishes that lined her kitchen counters. Not to mention her unmopped floors.
           Chance's grin made her blush. He was patiently standing on her deck, porch as it was called out here, in the freezing cold waiting for her to make up her mind.
            “Ummm. Do you want to come in? It's freezing out there.” Arianna asked before she could look any more like an idiot. She'd been in Slumber Creek for nine months, mostly keeping to herself – hard to fit in when the town was so small and most everyone here had generations of family born here. Hell, even most of the land was just passed down.
            Slumber Creek was still the old time small town. Gossips could destroy a person or an entire family and outsiders weren't overly welcome.

  1. First...what a great rule...never squat with your spurs on, and secondly...I hope you keep participating because this sounds like a real winner. Can't wait to read the entire book. Is the name going to be Slumber Creek? Great six to share...I like your description of neighbor...the driving had me giggling. Thanks for taking a chance on my first Linky List endeavor. Hope you'll sign up again this week.

  2. Thanks Ginger {and, of course, I just noticed it messed up my formatting and I need to see if I can fix it}.

    The series is Cowboys of Slumber Creek. This is book 1 and is called A Cowboy's Claim :-)

  3. Great first Snippit Amber! Looking forward to next week's. (and thanks for stopping by my blog as well.)

    I can totally relate to that pile of dirty dishes!

  4. I can too right now. I've put off the dishwasher all morning. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Love your six! Makes me want to pick up the book. Can I? Is it out? I'm looking forward to more. :)
