Now that the shopping and the wrapping and the decorating are behind you, it’s time to spoil yourself. Time to kick back, relax and read a good book. And have I got a book for you!
In PROMISE CANYON, which goes on sale tomorrow, December 28, you’ll return to Virgin River, the town built deep in California’s redwood forests by men of honor for the women they love. This first book in my 2011 trilogy introduces you to Navajo horse whisperer, Clay Tahoma, the sexy new veterinarian’s assistant, a new addition to Nate Jensen’s clinic.
Clay’s the polar opposite of independent Hopi beauty Lily Yazhi, who meets him when she delivers feed from her grandfather’s store. Lily has encountered her share of strong, silent, traditional men and isn’t eager for more. But as she and Clay work to gentle a traumatized stallion, a new romance begins to sizzle, giving the Virgin River regulars like Jack and Mel a lot to talk about!
A fun factoid: While I was visiting friends in Arizona, we visited an art gallery in a small town in the mountains. There I was stunned by a photo image of a Native American man in prayer–no ordinary man. His long hair spilled over his naked shoulders, and he had a couple of amazing tattoos on his muscled arms. The photographer introduced me to the man in that photo, all 6’2″ of him, with all that black hair down to his waist. Sean is not Navajo but part Taino. But he’s lived near the Navajo Nation for a long time, and his understanding of indigenous peoples is rich and sensitive. We have become friends, and the model/actor/musician and wonderful person has helped me with many of my cultural questions.
