As you may know, Quicksilver to Gold is coming out August 21st!
Here’s a short excerpt to wet your whistle:
He looked up toward her, and their eyes locked. For one moment Jeannie forgot about the gold, the claim, everything but those liquid brown eyes focused on hers. She’d seen some handsome men in her time, but never anything like those beautiful eyes framed by long, thick lashes. They seemed to call to her, to promise to tell her things she’d never heard before.
Then she blinked, and his eyes blinked in return. She stood, exhaled as she realized she’d been holding her breath, and heard her voice saying, “You have the most beautiful eyes.”
Clint’s skin turned beet red from the neck of his shirt up to the brim of his hat.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to embarrass you,” Jeannie said as she gathered her tools. She’d spoken without thinking, again. She had to stop doing that before it got her into trouble. Luckily, that was the last panning she needed to do here, so she could leave now. She walked away, leaving the silent Clint to the gurgling stream and his gold panning.
