** TRAIL DRIVE SERIES - BOOK ONE **

Welcome to my blog, and this weeks #WIPITUP WEDNESDAY blog hop!!


I don't have a title for my historical western WIP yet, so I have to call it by the working title on my computer. Well I'm pretty sure it's going to be the the "Trail Drive series" but I haven't titled this individual book yet.

You may remember the last time I blogged about this story, Jessica and Johnny had been riding for two days and had just seen the dust from the cattle drive. In this scene, they finally come upon it, hungry, thirsty and dusty.


“We could use another man,” Mr Jordan said, scratching his chin. “We could use both of you actually. Can you ride miss?” he looked at Jessica.
          
“Oh no.” Jessica shook her head, disgust dripping from her voice. “No way. I’m not staying with a bunch of filthy, stinking cattle men! Drovers smell! We’re not staying here!” She stomped her foot, sending a cloud of dust swirling up around her, making her cough. “I didn’t come all the way out here to play nursemaid to a herd of stupid cattle!” she declared between coughs. “I want to go home!”

Jessica could feel the men’s eyes on her. Had they heard her? She hadn’t spoken that loudly, had she? Gulping, she knew that she had. Her objections hadn’t been spoken softly, purely for the benefit of Johnny’s ears. No, she’d shrieked her outrage loudly at the very idea of making camp with these men; they would have to be deaf not to have heard her.

          
She felt Johnny’s hand grip her arm then she squealed as he hauled her roughly up in front of him on his horse, draping her belly-down across his saddle, her body balanced precariously on his legs and dangling down either side of the horse, the saddle horn pressing into her side.


Check back again next time for more previews of Johnny and Jessica!  
I don't own these pictures. I stole them off my Trail Drive Series board on Pinterest

  2. I adore her sass. Jessica sounds like the type of girl who really speaks her mind. And Johnny is just the Alpha male she needs to tame her wild spirit. I love the Help Wanted poster. ☺
