The Horse Whisperer -Snippet Sunday

~~Warning: Adult Content~~

On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday

I sent book 6 of my LONE WOLVES series off to the publisher last week, yay! So this week, I'm working on book 7, DISARMING COWBOYS. In today's snippet, Jayel is chained in a barn when she hears an odd, er, snippet of conversation...

The sound of the barn door being shoved open silenced Jayels thoughts, and she held her breath to listen. Boot steps headed her direction, along with the whistle of a jaunty little tune.
“Hey, girl,” a soft male voice said. “Ready to get out and stretch your legs?”
Jayel was about to make a smart ass reply to that when the boot steps stopped and she heard the squeak of a rusty hinge. One of the stalls was being opened.
“Somethin’ smells mighty good in here this mornin’, don’t it, Sunny? the man added in a soft, reassuring tone. No offense, but it ain’t you, old girl.

So, what do you suppose he thinks smells so good in that barn?

Find my Lone Wolves of Shay Falls series at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or at Bookstrand here:

I'm J. Rose Allister, wife, working mom, and the author of over twenty-five books. Somewhere in between one and the next, I love hanging out here on my blog and over on Twitter. Give me a comment or follow-I love chatting with people!


  1. Nicely done- I love that last line- giggles.

  2. Interesting development and it didn't go the way I expected, that's for sure, which made the snippet more fun. Great excerpt!

  3. Cute! Does he know she's in there too? I'm guessing he might.

  4. I think he totally knows she's in there. The question is, is he going to talk to her, or just his horse?

  5. Nope, he totally doesn't know what/who he's smelling yet, but he's about to! Thanks for the comments, guys. I appreciate that feedback!
