Book Spotlight: Take A Chance on Love

Take A Chance on Love
by Christi Williams

When Chancie de Leur meets highway patrol trooper Micah Taylor one frosty Wyoming night, instant sexual heat kindles between them. Chancie’s a lonely young widow who owns her own business and Micah is divorced, so there shouldn’t be anything holding them back. But Micah wonders if Chancie’s obvious wealth might become an issue, or the fact that she’s apparently the second woman in his life who has zero interest in ever having his baby.

Micah has no idea of the real problem between him and Chancie, until he meets her son. Ten-year-old Jamie de Leur is determined to break up his mom and her lawman, and Micah questions whether any relationship with Chancie is worth dealing with the spoiled kid she’s raising. 

In a showdown over Jamie breaking the law, Micah has to decide if he wants to be Chancie’s cop—or her family man.

Chancie waited in her car in the parking lot alongside the Inn as the engine cooled and the windows began to ice over. The lights from the restaurant windows glowed, and inside she could see a lone server and the heads of two customers in a booth directly in front of her. She checked her phone once more for the time. Could Micah have gotten past her somehow and already be inside, waiting?
She reached for the ignition to warm up the car, but waited as a battered four-wheel-drive truck pulled up next to her. She rubbed a spot clear in the freezing steam on the car window so she could see. A cowboy hat emerged from the pickup; the door slammed. A man in a dun leather coat rounded the front of the truck, halted, and tried to peer into the fogged front windshield of her car. Chancie hesitated. Was it Micah? He was tall enough, and sinewy enough, but she could see nothing of the man’s features in the shadow of his hat brim and through the ice crystals already re-forming on the windshield.
He walked between the two vehicles, leaned to tap on her side window. Chancie couldn’t get the power window down without turning on the ignition, so she hesitantly cracked the door open, ready to slam it shut again if the man were a stranger.
Micah’s friendly smile greeted her. “Hello, Chancie,” he said, his voice soft as a caress. He grasped the door handle, pulling the door open for her.
She swung her legs out and stood. Micah shut the door then paused, looking at her. “You showed up after all,” he said.
Chancie put her gloved hands in her coat pockets. “Did you think I wouldn’t?”
“I wasn’t sure. You had second thoughts about it, didn’t you?”

About the Author

My fiction is contemporary, so the settings and the characters are completely modern and struggle with today’s issues. But the men and women in my writing leave a big footprint, because their personalities and their solutions to problems hark back to the iconic days which really don’t exist anymore. My characters truly live by the Code of the West.
Christi Williams writes contemporary sensual romance set in Wyoming. My strong heroines love cowboys and lawmen!
I love hearing from readers, so please contact me.
