Here are my FB and Twitter links… https://www.facebook.com/LyndaBaileyRomanceAuthor and https://twitter.com/@authorlyndab.

I’m posting an excerpt from my newly released romance, BATTLE-TESTED LOVE. It’s the second in my *Battle for Love* series and is more a romantic suspense than straight-up contemporary romance. Hope y’all like it. 😆

 

Ben Gallagher’s senses were on high alert. He scanned the road ahead, but also kept a diligent eye on the side streets in case a patrol car crossed his path. It wouldn’t be long before his absence from the convict fire line was detected. He never thought he’d be grateful for a wildfire. But it if allowed him to get to Ana, he’d buy whoever pitched that cigarette in the sagebrush a beer.

Ana.

Her tear-streaked face haunted his every thought, motivated his every move. He had to get to her. No matter what it took.

He merged the car onto the freeway, heading north to Reno, then checked the fuel gage. Less than a third of a tank. Interstate 395 North through California to the Oregon border was a lonely stretch of road, but he couldn’t gas up in Reno. Too many people might see him. He’d have to wait until Bordertown, fifteen miles past the Biggest Little City. Then he could make it to Alturas where he’d have to refuel again to ensure he got to Bend. Absently, he wondered what kind of mileage this sub-compact got.

Ben glanced at the dashboard clock. Just before seven. His gut twisted. Even if he drove like a maniac, it would still take him almost nine hours to cover the five hundred miles to reach Ana.

Movement in the passenger seat brought his attention back to the woman beside him.

Christ!

Not only had he attacked that guy in the alley, but now he’d kidnapped a woman. Holy hell! What else could go wrong?

Charges of kidnapping definitely muddled an already complicated situation. But he couldn’t allow this woman to blow the whistle. She’d seen him crouching over an unconscious body. It didn’t take a brain surgeon to realize what had happened, and to whom. Add to the mix, grand theft auto and Ben was pretty sure he was a goner.

He was nothing but a walking target anyway for having landed the Carson City mayor’s step-brother, Parker Green, in the hospital in the first place. Not that he cared about the assault charges the little weasel had brought against him. He’d kick the bastard’s sorry ass all over again and ten more just like him.

His hands squeezed the steering wheel until the leather creaked.

Ana was all that mattered. Nobody hurt his baby sister without answering to him….
