Blog Tour: Book Promo and Excerpt - Lost And Found by Nicolette Grey
Today, I am pleased to have Nicolette Grey, author of Lost and Found on my blog whilst she is on her blog tour. Please make her feel welcome!
Life comes with its share of losses. In these four
novelettes of erotic romance by Nicolette Grey it takes on different forms.
“Moving Violations” deals with the loss of freedom and a special dream. “Lost
Canyon” begins with the death of a beloved family member in a harsh and foreign
environment. In “Time and a Half…Plus Benefits”, the heroine must learn to cope
with her low sense of self-esteem after a failed relationship, and “WindsweptBeach” portrays a crumbling marriage
with the hurts and frustrations that accompany it.
Although each story in this book is unique, they all
share the same initial undercurrent of loss as well as the “founding” aspect
that brings their heroines through their trials, intact and stronger - love.
LOST & FOUND …the losses we endure with the
happy endings we strive for, from Nicolette Grey and Hot Ink Press - because
love should never be boring!

out the window. He wouldn't meet her eyes as their driver opened the door and
pulled him to his feet. “All right now, folks, here’s what we’re going to do.
Bobby Lee, I'm going to un-cuff you. Go to the front desk of the Sandpiper
Motel across the street and ring the bell. When the girl comes, get us a room.
And, Bobby Lee? Remember what I told you – as long as y’all do what I say, you’ll
both be fine.”
“Let me see your
badge,” Georgia Rae insisted as cold fingers of panic gripped her gut. “You’re
way out of line, here.”
The cop removed
his hat and ran a large hand through his hair.
Unbuttoning the shirt of his uniform, he removed it and draped it across
the seat. Beneath the blue and gray, he was wearing a plain white t-shirt. “Do
I need to remind you about Spindrift
Drive?” he said in his slow southern drawl.

He chuckled and

you red-handed, so I suggest you shut the hell up.”

I believe. Now, are you going to behave, or do I have to run you in?”

“Are we there,
darlin’.” Wayne Tibbits’ voice was terse as he wiped the sweat from his brow.
He softened the disappointing news with a brief upturn of his chapped lips and
pointed ahead to the distant mountains. “All we've got left is the Bighorn Mountains – once we’re over them, we’re home.”
She sighed and
lifted her petticoats as she stepped over the muddy ruts left from another
wagon of travelers headed west. “How many more days?”
looked to the sky and frowned. “Ten’s my guess, if the weather holds. Don’t
reckon it will, though. Not from the looks of those clouds overhead.” He patted
the seat beside him. “Climb back up and wait here. I’ll ask at the saloon about

The screech came
from an upper window out of which Trulee Hightower leaned, frowning fiercely.
“I’m not paying you to stand around talking! Start unloading! I want everything
marked with an orange sticker to come in first.”
Will shouted. Turning to Missy he
whispered, “I told you so.”
From the back of
the truck, Matt indicated a large walnut dresser. “Let’s get that one out of
the way, Willy Boy. With any luck this’ll go smoothly and we’ll be done early.”

it’ll take at least two days to unload this shit and get it set up. The

The soonest we’ll be leaving is tomorrow afternoon.”

Missy felt heat
flood her cheeks and shook her head. Ignoring the flutter in her belly, she
headed for her car.

tall man with dark hair, muscular build, and wide grin. He waved when he caught
her eye and took a sip from the plastic glass he held in his hand.
“Hi Bruce,” she
called, forcing a smile. “Good to see you.”

with a mock tackle courtesy of their old college football days. “Later’s better
than never,” he said, landing on his back. He dusted himself off as Bruce
helped him to his feet. “Good to see you, man.”
Grey began writing three years ago as a way to express her creativity. She has
since segued from middle grade and literary fiction to her newest passion,
erotic romance. Her two published shorts will soon be joined by another
anthology selection ("Snow White" in FETISH FAIRY TALES, edited by
Amanda Browning for Hot Ink Press) and two solo books (LOST AND FOUND, and THE
GODDESS OF BLACKWATER POND). When she’s not writing, she enjoys running and
hiking with her husband and the family dog.
