“Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this wonderful book
and fall in love.” (5 star review)
“Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. ”
(5 star review)
I started this story two weeks ago and I hope you’re enjoying it so far. I’m not sure where it’s heading, so any comments / critique is more than welcomed.
“Wait,” she almost shouted. “We can’t just—”
“Mum, just run. You’re not wearing your glasses, are you? It’s the Park Ranger vehicle.”
Shaking her head at her own embarrassment, but also her clever daughter, she exhaled a long breath and rushed after Zoe through the forest, literally over sticks and stones. Worried about her daughter stopping a stranger’s car, Park Ranger or not, she screamed, “Wait, Zoe. Wait for me.”
Without looking back, her daughter replied, “There’s no way I’m letting this guy drive off.”
As she stopped a couple of minutes later in front of the Ranger’s truck, she placed her hands on her knees, trying to catch her breath..
“Mum got us lost.”
The Ranger came around the car and placed his hand on Lexie’s arm, “Ma’am, are you okay?”
She straightened. “I’m okay. Embarrassed, my ego dinted, and having aged by about ten years, but I’m okay.”
His deep chuckle did something to her. Something that made her insides warm and her stomach flutter. Unsure how to deal with it, she pushed it away, dealing with the problem at hand.
“I got us lost,” she finally conceded.
Raising his brows, he opened his mouth, but closed it again, looking over at Zoe. “Okay, so one thing after the other. I hope you know that waving down a car can be dangerous.”
“Please don’t lecture her,” Lexie said, still trying to catch her breath. “I will do that in due time later on, at the moment, she deserves a medal, because…” She blew out a breath. “Because we were lost.”
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

And so the tables turn . . . from mum taking care of daughter to the reverse.
Happens so quickly … and so often 🙂 Not that I speak from experience .. LOL. Thanks for stopping by, Ed.
I like the effect the ranger has on her!
Thank you, Ros. Glad you liked it.
A breathless moment – lol!
LOL – it is indeed. Thanks, Aurora.
Loved the snippet, can’t wait to learn more about the Ranger (he sounds nice and HOT). Great excerpt!
Thanks, Veronica. LOL, re the Ranger 🙂
I’m glad they waved down the Ranger. I’m curious to more about him too. Great snippet.
I think you want to say ‘glasses’ instead of ‘glassed’. (You’re not wearing your glassed, are you?) 🙂
Thanks, Karen … also re the typo. Much appreciated.
The pressure is on re the Ranger 🙂
