Heart of Montana #1.5 (novella)
Author: Katy Regnery
Publisher: Boroughs Publishing Group
Publication Date: November 1, 2013
Waitress Tess Branson has earned a bad reputation, and the nickname “Fast Tessie,” as result of her poor judgement where men are concerned. Tess learned from a young age that men – of all ages – were interested in one thing from her and one thing only. But all Tess ever really wanted was to connect with someone special – to mean something to someone. Lucas Flynn, the short order cook at the restaurant where Tess works, has just been released on parole. He’s trying to get his life back on track, but can’t help noticing the pretty waitress who treats him kindly, despite his past. At Lucas’s urging, Tess makes a wish on a star, but they’ll have to rely on the magic of Christmas to help it come true.
He uncrossed his arms, moving his white apron aside to put his hands in the pockets of his jeans. “Go out to dinner with me on Monday night, Tess.”
“I’m asking you out on a date.”
“Why?” she murmured, brows knitted in confusion.
“Because I’d like to get to know you better.”
“You don’t have to take me to dinner to get to know me better,” she blurted out softly.
“But that’s the way I’d like to do it,” he said, holding out his hand, palm up.
She looked down at his hand, then back up at his face. She’d kissed many men in her life. So many men, she couldn’t have possibly even guessed at how many. But, she’d never wanted to kiss a man as desperately as she wanted to kiss Lucas Flynn.
She placed her hand in his and watched as he brought it to his lips, brushing his lips softly against her cold skin, sending a deluge of shivers up her arm, down her back, making her tingle before turning her insides hot. A small, breathy sound escaped from her throat as she stared at his dark brown, lightly waved head bent over her hand.
He released her hand and turned, reaching for the door knob.
“Make a wish on a star before you come in,” he said softly, without turning to face her. “It’s Christmastime. It might come true.”
Then he slipped inside, leaving her hot and alone under the starry sky.
About the Author
KATY REGNERY, winner of the 2013 NECRWA First Kiss and 2013 Maine RWA Everything But the Kitchen Sink contests, has always loved telling a good story and credits her mother with making funny, heartwarming tales come alive throughout her childhood. A lifelong devotee of all romance writing from Edwardian to present-day, it was just a matter of time before Katy tried her hand at writing a love story of her own.
As it turned out, one love story turned into a series of five Heart of Montana romances, following the love lives of the Yellowstone-based Lindstrom siblings. In addition to small-town contemporary romance, Katy is presently writing a paranormal romance that takes place in northern New England and the forests north of Quebec.
Speaking of forests, Katy lives in the relative-wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut where her writing room looks out at the woods and her husband, two young children and two dogs create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories of all are the messy and unexpected ones.
