New Rose, Nancy Jardine
Welcome Nancy Jardine to the ranch today! She’s here to share her debut book that released yesterday with The Wild Rose Press- Monogamy Twist.
Nancy Jardine was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland, in the 1950s and 60s. Nancy constantly had her nose immersed in a book; an escape to different worlds. Teaching being her profession (11-12year olds) reading and writing formed part of her day for many years. Now Nancy spends her time writing contemporary romance novels. Historical romances; general women’s fiction; and writing for children 9-12yrs are currently under the editing pen and will hopefully find a neat little home in the near future.
Nancy has lived with her husband in the picturesque ‘castle country’ of Aberdeenshire, Scotland, for the last long while and has two grown up daughters and two fabulous sons-in-law. Her older daughter is about to give birth to Nancy’s first grandchild any minute now, the due date being 31st Aug. 2011-the whole family is in nail biting suspense right now. Will it be a boy? Or a girl? As yet nobody knows…not even the prospective mother and father.
Hobbies: (time permitting…and, oh my, when is that?) include family history research, doing exciting fun things she’s never done before, and working in her large garden where she tends real flowers and some spectacular weeds!!!
Luke Salieri thought he’d seen everything. But when he inherits a dilapidated English estate from a woman he’s never heard of—and with quirky conditions besides—it’s a mystery he wants resolved immediately. There must be a woman out there who can meet his needs. But how far will he have to go to persuade her? Lucrative employment for a whole year? The job of researching the old house and its fantastic contents is enticing – but Rhia Ashton can’t see herself living with gorgeous Luke Salieri and not wanting his body as well. Can she live and sleep with him for a whole year and then walk away? Rhia has her own ideas about what will make it worth her while.
“Rhia!” he snorted instead. “Of course it will. How could I ignore such a valuable property?”
Rejection and then disappointment flashed across her lovely face before she answered, “You’ve lost me.” Her gaze drew away. “Do you want it or not?”
“Rhia, please take heed,” Luke sighed, his voice enticing her to turn back. He didn’t dare touch her. And he did want it…but knew that wasn’t what she meant. He didn’t dare use his fingertips to turn her delectable little chin toward him, for he knew one fingering would never be enough. “It would be a crying shame to leave that house to rot for another fifty years. It’s a valuable house and valuable land. It could be converted to multiple uses for corporate business, or as a hotel facility.”
“Ah…future revenues?” Her eyes held that astutely impressive derision again.
His face crept closer, his lips only a pout away. “Rhia, you wouldn’t want to be responsible for that house to fall into even more disrepair, that house you’ve already professed to love? Would you?”
She was floundering like a non-swimmer in a forest puddle, indecision hovering over her gorgeous eyes. He was confident she couldn’t resist him. His libido kicked in triple time, but his resolve quadrupled.
“Would you want that on your conscience? Knowing it was your fault it happened?”
He knew his propinquity was keeping her spellbound, but by her glower she wasn’t taking the flack. Her disgusted expression informed him in no uncertain terms what she thought about his last words.
