Let’s go full-on teaser today with a short Good Folk excerpt. Are you ready? There are no spoilers, so don’t fret. Just a little something fun for you…
I bit the inside of my cheek to keep from saying something else stupid, like, I do declare, Mr. Deputy. Your quiet, confident ways have me positively in raptures… even though the words weren’t far from the truth. My head felt dizzy, and I had to think he possessed some sort of sexy-voodoo magic. The recipe of him taken all together (that I’d seen so far) seemed unreal, too good to be true.
And yet everything about this guy felt entirely authentic.
He hadn’t even looked at his phone. Not once. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d been in someone’s company—especially not for this length of time—without them at least glancing at their phone, checking their messages or recent likes and comments on Instagram.
Positively in raptures!!! Prepare thyselves for an attentive Jackson James. <3
One unforgettable night leads to an unlikely shared connection, and unlikely connections never go unnoticed by the good folks in Green Valley, Tennessee. . .
Jackson James follows the rules. He has to. He’s a sheriff’s deputy in a super small town with a super big personality. However, strict adherence to the law during the day has been enjoyably balanced by rakish rules at night. Jackson, typically happy to protect and serve (and serve, and serve), starts questioning the value of wayward evenings when getting laid starts to feel more like being waylaid. Could it be that Green Valley’s most eligible—and notorious—bachelor longs for something (and someone) real?
Mega movie star Raquel Ezra follows only one rule: always leave them wanting more. Studio execs, reporters, audiences, fans, lovers—no one can get enough of the smart, savvy, and sexy bombshell. But when “generous offers” begin to feel more like excessive demands, years of always leaving has the elusive starlet longing for something (and perhaps someone) lasting.
When Raquel abruptly returns to the quirky Tennessee hamlet, her path crosses with the delectable deputy with whom she spent one unforgettable night. Unfortunately, scandal and intrigue soon follow. Raquel and Jackson must decide which is more important: following their rules? Or, at long last, finding something real.
TOTALLY FOLKED is a standalone, contemporary romantic comedy novel and book #1 in the Good Folk: Modern Folktales series.
