Have you ever had one of those days were nothing seems to go right? That was my day to day. I had million and one things to accomplish, but nothing seemed to cooperate. I stepped outside and took a look around. Everything is snow-covered (I’m ready for winter to end) and beautiful. The cedar trees scent the air and gulls are crying overhead. I took a deep breath and allowed the outdoors to calm my mind. I feel so much better. If you can’t visit the U.P. of Michigan physically, why not pick up the Cedar River series books and visit mentally? There are two books so far, but many more to come. I just finished the third book and revealed the cover art for my FB fans. I’ll post it here tomorrow.
Come Visit the Upper Peninsula by Gemma K. Murray
I’ll never forget the first look I got of Adam. He wore his bad attitude like a well-worn pair of jeans. Gods, I wanted to be the woman to tame his wild side. The anger radiated off him in waves, but I knew in my heart that he was simply hurting.
Every year since I could remember, the pack and the pride would lay aside their differences and would help with the clearing of downed trees in the woods between the two lands. Roman Pierce recruited Adam to help. He was a young and able body. His lanky muscles bunched and relaxed with each piece of wood he tossed into the waiting trailers. My mouth still waters at that memory. Then, Adam got arrested. My dad warned me to stay away from Adam, but there was something about that young man. I started to make excuses to go into town with my girlfriends in hopes of catching his eye.
“He’s nothing but bad news, Luna,” my friend, Maria, said.
“If that’s what bad news looks like, you can deliver it to me every day,” was my reply.
Adam’s black hair was always in his eyes, but when those piercing green eyes turned my way, I felt my insides melt. A mere glance from the Pierce Pride bad boy sent my heart racing. I would watch him in the halls at school and on the football field. His speed made him the best receiver on the Cedar River Miners. I’d watch him on the side lines palling around with “Bodacious” Bowie Golden. Those two together were enough to make a girl’s panties drop with a simple smile.
