    Gold FireGold Fire by Starr Ambrose

  • Synopsis:

    Seal the deal with a kiss.

    Zoe Larkin is facing the biggest career opportunity of her life, and she’s not going to let Jase Garrett ruin it for her. The infuriatingly sexy owner of the Rusty Wire, the hottest honky-tonk saloon in Barringer’s Pass, flat-out refuses to sell his bar and its surrounding land to her employer, the Alpine Sky ski resort. If Zoe can convince the stubborn cowboy to change his mind, she’ll not only impress her rich, handsome boss, but maybe—just maybe—people in town will finally start to take her seriously.

    When the Rusty Wire becomes the repeated target of violent intimidation tactics, though, the spunky redhead’s meticulous to-do lists and conservative blazers are no defense against her wild child reputation. The only person who understands what it takes to forget the past is standing between her and the future. But is it the future she wants? Or will Jase’s electric kiss ignite a fire in her heart for the life she truly desires?

  • He must have wanted to steer away from another argument.  Relieved, because she did, too, she nodded.  “Basically.  We had a lot of freedom at the commune, which is why our grandmother insisted we stay with her during the school year instead of being homeschooled.  She wanted us to learn how to fit in, but it backfired.  Maggie and I handled it okay until high school, when the rules started feeling oppressive.  We rebelled in the only way we could, by breaking the rules.”

All the rules?”

“Every one we could.  Skipping school, failing classes, smoking pot….”  She hesitated to admit it, but suddenly it was important that Jase know the real Zoe Larkin.  “And sleeping around.  For a few years I was what you’d call easy.  I did whatever would shock my mother and grandmother.”

 Does that just make you wonder what had been going on leading to this conversation?  I hope you enjoyed this tease and will leave me one of your own.
