#Fridayreads - A Special Offer!

Today I want to share a very special event!

My good friend Bev Pettersen has her first book, Jockeys and Jewels, available at amazon and smashwords. I'm so thrilled for her - this is one of her Golden Heart Finalist books (and yes, she has finalled more than once!) and if you like romance, mystery, and horses - you're going to love it!

I'm in possession of a special code that will allow one lucky commenter to download the book for free - I already bought it yesterday, so Bev suggested I pass the good fortune along. :-)

All you have to do is leave a comment and I'll draw at the end of the day!

You can visit Bev's website here.

Racehorse trainer, Kurt MacKinnon, resents being yanked back into undercover police work. But when his ex-partner is brutally murdered, he moves his third-string horses to a dirt road track, determined to hunt down the killer.

Struggling apprentice jockey, Julie West, pins her dreams of a vital win on the charismatic trainer, never suspecting she’s a person of interest—and not because of her riding ability.

Kurt didn’t expect his temperamental colt to blossom under Julie’s deft touch nor for his own rusty heart to soften. However, his deception draws them both into the cross-hairs of a killer…and now much more than their love is in danger.
