Rough Ride

You do for family, no matter what. Lane Iverson knows that better than anyone. Harboring a secret about his mother’s death, Lane is counting the days until he finishes helping his brothers with some work and can head back to his hiding hole hours away. As long as he doesn’t have to face his three brothers every day, the guilt is easier to carry.

There is only one thing that can risk his plan. She stands all of five foot tall with these deep eyes and a voice that shudders through him. The completely addicting, Gretchen Jones. She’s been watching him the entire time he’s been in town. With courage from her friends behind her, she confronts what she wants. To her surprise, that’s the easy part. Keeping her heart protected when she knows he’ll be leaving? Not so easy, but her only choice.

A Teaser Tuesday with In The Hay – Part 4

This is my last clip from In The Hay for #TeaserTuesday. Enjoy!

Hay 677x1000He swallowed back a groan. “If you can keep your hands to yourself, I’ll watch mine. If you can’t resist, though, I might better take that Tylenol.”

Her eyes narrowed.

“Just saying.” He couldn’t stop the grin. “You sounded and felt pretty damn pleased last night. I’m not sure you can keep your hands to yourself if I stayed.”

Her cheeks colored and thighs squeezed together. “Are you trying to dare me into sleeping with you?”

“Dare you?” He swallowed and tried hard to focus on her words, but all he kept seeing were her clenched leg muscles and how tight she’d gripped him last night. He forced words out. “No. Just trying to figure out what to expect. Sleep or more.”

“Sleep. That’s it.”

“You sure?”

She hesitated and licked her lips. Eyes drifted off to the side. “Y…es.”

A Teaser Tuesday with In The Hay – Part 3

#TeaserTuesday I’m back with more from In The Hay, but this time here’s a little clip from Drew–


Hay 677x1000Damn it, she was making it hard to leave. And exactly why did he want to leave again? And why was she making it hard for him to leave… unless she really didn’t want him going anywhere. He glanced up and found her watching him. She held his gaze for only a moment and returned her attention to Clyde. She was so hard to read. Last night was clear and today was just all over different. He wanted the forward, sexy Lette who dragged him through a hay field.

Also, part of the point for being in this town was to prove a few things to his father. Like he could maintain his lifestyle and do his work. Two birds, one stone. “Look, thanks for letting me stay this long, but this couch is hard as hell. Unless you’re willing to share your bed, I’m going to head out.”

She stopped petting Clyde. “I’m not sure…”

She caught her lip between her teeth and he swallowed back a groan. “If you can keep your hands to yourself, I’ll watch mine. If you can’t resist, though, I might better take that Tylenol.”

A Teaser Tuesday with In The Hay – Part 2

Welcome back to #TeaserTuesday ! I picked up the last sentence of my last share (you can find it by clicking my tag #KeriTeases ) so everyone would know what Lette was up to!

Hay 677x1000Sometime last night, during all her tossing and turning and remembering, she got the bright idea to get on the Internet and do a little Googling on the topic of sex.

She’d done that until daylight… and then later in the morning, afternoon, and well, she just shut her computer down not an hour ago and finally had some breakfast. She could say one thing for sure: she wasn’t near as clueless about sex as she’d been twenty-four hours earlier.

Stupid though, now that was a whole ‘nother ball game. With each new click and article and tip and suggestion, she’d gotten more interested, wanted more, wanted Drew to act out and explain what she was reading. So much in fact, she’d nearly caved. Had gone to dress for the night three separate times, each time catching sight of her naked butt in the mirror and cringing over the idea of him wanting to stare at it. Never mind her boobs. Or the rest of her spread out before him. And there’d been mention of tasting like she was dessert. Good God, what if she tasted bad. Oh yes, she had Googled “foods to make down there taste better” along with several other phrases.

Pineapple kept popping up. The last time she’d had pineapple? At least six months ago, if not more. So no, no tasting there.

A Teaser Tuesday with In The Hay

Welcome to #TeaserTuesday other authors have been doing this on Facebook, so I thought it’d be something fun to start in 2014!

This comes from one of my favorite books I’ve written—In The Hay

Hay 677x1000The rag in Nicolette’s hand fell from her fingertips. Her stomach plummeted to the tile floor with it. It was him. Drew. The

man with smooth kisses and soft hands who had kept her awake all night and agitated all day. This single man who had tossed her thoughts around.

What was he doing here? How did he find her? Coolness draped across her cheeks. Her vision swam. Just how in the hell had he found her? She’d told no one where she was staying. For Pete’s sake, he was the only one she talked to enough to say she was house-sitting.

He leaned on the doorframe. A dish was in his hands. “I was just on my way to meet you, but Shellie asked me to bring this to this house. I had no idea you’d be opening the door.”

He glanced down the front of her, no doubt seeing her oversized shirt, baggy boxer shorts, no makeup, and hair in a half-put-up ponytail. Yeah, he probably realized she wasn’t planning on being there. He likely figured that last night when she ran out of there while he played good Samaritan and helped with the two drunks.

She went back and forth all day over whether she should show up tonight or not. But in the end, she’d decided to stay in. She wasn’t a coward. She was just sticking to her guns. It was hard, too. Sometime last night, during all her tossing and turning and remembering, she got the bright idea to get on the Internet and do a little Googling on the topic of sex.

Keri Ford in 2013. 10 releases…3 series…1 new world!

Most writers make goals. They may be monthly, quarterly, yearly–I even have some out that I hope to accomplish over the next two or three years! Part of the fun of making new goals is looking back on what you’ve accomplished. So here’s what I did in 2013:

I published 9 stories. 6 of those were reissuing my blacklist. 1 of those was a bundle of 3 of those stories. 2 of those were a new release.

Out of those 9, I completely published a whole series and the start to a brand-new series that I’m excited to continue into 2014!

If I get at all lucky, I’ll have 1 more book to add to my total for 2013. I got sick for a week before the holidays and it threw me off my goals. We’ll see. 🙂 if so, that’ll be the start of re-releasing my most popular series–The Roughnecks.

So those 9 stories? Here they are:

Trail 1400x2215

Jessie McBride barely survived the unexpected death of her loving parents. Forced to fend for herself with few people to depend on while raising her younger cousin, Jessie learned to be self-sufficient. She kept a few friends close and pushed the rest of the world away, along with that helpless, dependent girl she was once. Been there, done that, never again.

It works until Henry Green enters her life, with sentimental tales of his grandpa and family. Jessie is drawn in as Henry strives to take care of the man who raised him. But while Henry is putting things in place for his grandpa to retire, his well-intended controlling ways are smothering Jessie.

Can Henry’s invitation back to life and love tempt Jessie to drop the emotional wall, or will Henry give up on chasing the girl she once was?

*Audio Book*

Excerpt | Reviews

At eighteen, Kara Duncan had already made her fair share of mistakes, choosing the wrong boy and earning herself a bad reputation in the process. Hurt and humiliated, she’d packed up and moved on, sure that everyone in Bella Warren, Arkansas, would be better off without her. She’d planned never to return, but when crisis strikes, she has nowhere else to turn.

After seven years, Wade Chester thought his feelings for Kara were finally ancient history. Until he sees her again, standing on his front porch just as she’d done a million times before. She needs his help—and his family’s crops—if her canning business is going to survive. The rest of his family has let bygones be bygones, so why is it so hard for him to let go of the past?

While Kara claims to be interested only in putting things right, the old heat flaring between them is undeniable. But Wade will need to risk his heart—and the reputation of his farm—to prove that they’re meant to be together.
