Goodnight Kisses Excerpt by Wilhelmina Stolen

GoodnightkissestourbannerJPEG cover for Goodnight KissesFearing she carries her mother’s curse of marriage, nineteen-year-old Eleanor Mackenna swore never to vow herself into matrimonial bondage. Nuptials aren’t needed where true love is concerned. A concept she is sure a man like McCrea Coldiron would agree with. The town gossip has him pegged as a heart breaker, but Eleanor knows a different side to McCrea. And years of loving him without seeing his affection returned has made her desperate enough to ask him for advice on seducing a man. ??
McCrea isn’t proud of his reputation as a brawler and a womanizer. As a teenager the rumors were funny, now they may cost him the land he has worked so hard for. Chatty little Eleanor Mackenna has been chasing his spurs for years and ignoring her was easy to do until she grew up. A beautiful face and curves in all the right places made her hard to resist, and when his granddad lays down an ultimatum to make her his wife, McCrea
offers her a first class lesson in seduction.?
Their date ending in more than good night kisses was everything McCrea promised it would be, but his sudden withdraw, and cold reaction to her confession of love reveal his true motives. A business arrangement with
Excerpt - Louisa leaned to one side, and bumped Eleanor with her shoulder. “I have no idea what you see in McCrea.”
Jess poked his head into the narrow space between them. “Me neither. You could do so much better.”
Louisa put a finger to her brothers’ forehead, and pushed him backward. “You’re annoying. You know that?”
“Maybe.” Without warning, he plucked Eleanor from the railing, tossed her over his shoulder, and spun her around, smacking her bottom. “But I am fun.” 
She shielded her backside with both hands and his hat tumbled to the ground. “Stop that! Put me down!”
He hauled her around to the front of him, and grinned. “Come on, El. Let me be your date.”
Struggling against his strong hold was futile. She was his prisoner until the game was over. “No, I’m not going to be a pity date. I’ll ask Conner.”
Like a ragdoll, he lifted her off the ground, took her hand, and spun her around in a grand waltz. “Oh, that kid’s not a threat to McCrea.”
She laughed at the dance. “And you are?”
He let her slide to the ground and whirled her out. “Hell, yeah. You know that I’m a ladies’ man.”

Author Head Shot for Wilhelmina StolenI’m a country girl, born in Tennessee and raised in Kentucky. I’m a roamer, but always come home because I love the small town atmosphere. It’s who I am. Life in my little corner of the world consists of long winter nights curled up by the fire, cheering on my favorite football teams in the fall, enduring March Madness in the spring and walking barefoot through my garden with a cold jar of sweet tea in the summer – fireflies at sunset accompanied by a serenade of crickets and frogs, and lazy summer nights in the porch swing with my beau.
When I’m not writing, I’m traveling, reading or finding a million other ways to express my creativity. My tastes in music range from classical to rock. I’m passionate about history, art and helping others find the courage to express themselves.
