LEGACY REBORN
Ebook specially priced at only 99 cents!


As the sun stretched its morning rays gently over the farm, Phoenix rose quietly and walked onto the newly constructed deck. Tears misted her eyes once again. 

"Do you like it?" CJ asked. 

Phoenix turned to stare at the man standing several feet away from her. The man she was going to marry today. 
She couldn't speak, but nodded and held out her hand to him. 

CJ took her hand and led her to stand in front of the sliding glass doors that enclosed the deck, making it a cozy retreat with a fire burning in the outdoor fireplace. 

"You have blisters on your hands." Phoenix turned CJ's hands up and looked at the palms. 

"Love blisters." 

Phoenix laughed as she shook her head. "I'm sure I have some ointment I've used for the llamas that will help those." 

"I don't want to upset Romeo by using all his ointment." 

They laughed together, then lapsed into silence. After a moment, CJ asked, "Are you okay with getting married?" 

Slowly, Phoenix nodded. "I still can't quite believe something so beautiful has come into my life. Then all the old fears and doubts start crowding into my head. But my sisters helped me see love is a gift we should treasure and not a regret we passed up." 

Turning his palms up, Phoenix kissed the blisters on CJ's hands. One by one.

MARRY ME...

LEGACY REBORN
Specially priced at only 99 cents!



Unconsciously, Phoenix laid a hand over the baby growing in her womb and nodded. 

A man who wanted to be a daddy to her child. The wonder of that thought drifted slowly through her being. Her mind tested the foreign notions of trust and, dare she think it, love. Two things she hadn't experienced much in her life. She wouldn't take that step just yet, but would let the dream unfold bit by cautious bit in her heart. 

...CJ paused and looked into her eyes. "Also know I intend to be part of your life and a daddy to our baby. Whether she's a beautiful, thoughtful, courageous little girl like you or a hard-headed little boy like me, I intend to wake that child up in the morning with tickles and hugs, and kiss them good-night." 

Hope hitched in Phoenix's breast. Could a man really live that promise? She wanted to believe, but a shadow of doubt and fear still lingered. 

"When you're ready, I'd like to get married." 

The oh-so-casual statement almost slipped by Phoenix without generating panic. Almost.

WE CAN AT LEAST TRY...


LEGACY REBORN
Specially priced at only 99 cents!


Considering her recent doubts, her pregnancy and her state of mind, Phoenix resigned as director at the domestic violence shelter...

Not long after she finished her resignation letter, CJ arrived at the farm with another teddy bear...

"You're going to have to help me out here...I want to hold you tight and never let you go. But I think that would just frighten you right now." 

Tears misted Phoenix's eyes once more as she nodded. 

He held out his hand. "I need to feel your touch. To know there's hope for us. That we can at least try..." 

For long moments, Phoenix stared at CJ's outstretched hand. 

Fear beat heavily through her veins. She could let the past control her as Jack had--still did from his grave. Or she could step forward in spite of her fear and take a chance. 

Slowly, slowly, slowly, she inched her fingers toward CJ's hand. When her fingertips touched his, she didn't jump with fear. She closed her eyes and explored the slight callouses on the pad of his hand; felt the lines and indents on his palm. 
He didn't try to capture her hand and hold her prisoner. He let her explore, then slowly draw away. 

"I'll be back tomorrow," he whispered.

WATCHING WITH SUSPICIOUS EYES

LEGACY REBORN
Specially priced at only 99 cents!

When the driver pulled up to the villa, the sun-drenched adobe glowed in shades of pink from the setting sun. Red-tiled roofs jutted at different heights above the palm trees like children stair-stepped in awkward ages. Looking closer, shadows lurked under arched doorways and grilled windows, watching the latest arrivals with suspicious eyes. 

A doorman met them, fawning over Pierce as he directed a bellboy to unload the luggage and take it to El SeƱor's suite. 
Are you crazy? The thought occurred to Phoenix as she stepped into the tiled entryway, a long corridor stretching in either direction with numerous arched doorways. They walked under the central archway, which opened up into what would be considered a lobby in a western hotel. A central table offered information about the nearby local towns, and colorful chairs invited travelers to rest or chat. 

Most of the year, the villa hosted wealthy clientele who rented the suites. Except for times like now, when Portia had ordered all rooms be reserved for members of the board of Stratford Enterprises and their guests. 

Any of these people could be a criminal who would sell their own baby for a profit. Phoenix wasn't used to playing spy as the O'Shea family seemed so adept at doing. Why had this seemed like a good idea?

WANTING...


LEGACY REBORN
Specially priced at only 99 cents!


As CJ stepped onto the floor to dance with his sister, Phoenix couldn't tear her gaze away from his leanly muscled frame in a white tuxedo. Longish hair brushed his shoulders, bringing to mind a gentleman of the Old West, fitting perfectly with the mood of this celebration. 

Phoenix started out playing it cool, thinking CJ would immediately ask her to dance. When yet another dance started and he passed her by with no more than a wink, she began to feel a bit perturbed. 

I'm a wallflower. Standing by a beautifully inlaid wood wall of the ballroom in Waring House, but a wallflower nonetheless. 

Had she grown warts on her nose since the waltzing started? Missed a piece of salad between her teeth from dinner? Had her deodorant given out? 

Discreetly, Phoenix checked out the possible offenses. She took a quick glance in one of the gilded mirrors placed strategically around the room to reflect the twirling dancers. Stretched her arms upward with quick sniff to the side. 
Nope. Everything seemed normal. 

"What are you doing?" CJ stood in front of her, curiosity in his eyes. 

"Ah...practicing my dance moves," Phoenix said. "I used to be a disco queen." 

CJ lifted an eyebrow. "Unless my math is really bad, you're too young to be a disco queen. But would you like to waltz?" 

Phoenix almost refused just to be contrary. But she so wanted CJ to hold her in his arms. So with what she hoped was casual indifference, she said, "I believe I have room on my dance card for perhaps one waltz." 

CJ grinned and twirled Phoenix onto the dance floor. After a few basic box steps, he turned and swept her into a graceful swirl. Phoenix followed as if drawn by a magnet. 

Staring into her eyes, he back-stepped and turned. She followed flawlessly. Another turn and a swoop. A swirl and another. A backstep and CJ twirled Phoenix away from him and under his arm. Swirls and dips round and round left her breathless. Wanting more than a dance. Wanting...

NO RELATIONSHIP--NO EXCEPTIONS!

LEGACY REBORN
Specially priced at only 99 cents!

~~~EXCERPT~~~



Phoenix shifted in the straight-backed wooden chair as CJ sat next to her. She had never fallen in instant lust with a man--before now. This was most inconvenient, seeing as how she had vowed not to become involved with any man for the rest of this lifetime. Her relationships with men had caused enough sorrow to last a couple centuries. 

She was not going to make an exception for CJ O'Shea.

A MODERN WARRIOR WOMAN

LEGACY REBORN
Specially priced at only 99 cents!



~~~EXCERPT~~~

A modern warrior woman, CJ thought as the farm truck rumbled by. The woman's blonde hair streamed out the open driver's window as she shouted encouragement to the assorted vehicles crowded with Halo citizens speeding along the road toward their hometown. 

After a moment, CJ realized the blonde was Phoenix Ash, the usually buttoned-down director of the local domestic violence center. Today, she displayed a core of passion beneath the common sense country exterior of jeans, boots and hair swept back in a ponytail.

THE CALL SHE DREADED YET ANTICIPATED


LEGACY REBORN
Specially priced at only 99 cents!


~~~EXCERPT~~~

The call Phoenix Ash had dreaded since the last building was boarded up in her hometown had come in. Randall Weston and his cronies were closing in on Halo. 

Ironically, her life flashed before her eyes. A childhood with a timid mother and a father who mostly ignored her existence. Her teenaged years when she tried pretty much anything with anybody to gain attention. A desperate relationship with an abusive man who tried to control every detail of her life. 

And the night Charlene was killed saving Phoenix's life. 

"Please give me one-tenth of your courage, Char," Phoenix whispered as she walked through the farmhouse she loved, spreading the word to the other residents. 

They had practiced this moment for weeks. Dreaded yet anticipated its coming. One last, give-it-all attempt to save their town from the criminals who had wielded control several decades earlier. Taking over Halo once more would allow those crooks to reap the wealth in a vein of gold recently uncovered when most of the town was destroyed with dynamite. 

"We may not come back," Phoenix warned each person. "You can stay here if you want." 

No one even considered that option.

NOTHING EVER HAPPENS IN SMALL TOWNS...


LEGACY REBORN
Specially priced at only 99 cents!




~~~EXCERPT~~~

Nothing ever happens in small towns. 

The thought brought a wry twist of a smile to CJ O'Shea's mouth as he steered the truck around another pothole in the gravel road. 

Most people considered him a big-city attorney who thrived on social causes. Yet today he was delivering food and supplies to his family hiding out in an underground cavern while what was left of Halo, Oregon sat boarded up like a ghost town.

CJ veered to the left, circling a lake that surrounded the ruins of a stone monastery guarding the caverns where his family was hidden. The road was nothing but a dirt track here. A dirt track showing signs of recent traffic. 

With a frown, CJ downshifted. As the truck slowed, he rolled down the window and listened. 

All was quiet. Too quiet.
