Coming in December, My New Novella in the Driscoll Saga

 Wild Yellow Clover and Honey Wheat Sage

bookcover - wild yellow clover revised

By Paula Freda

(Macey’s Story)
Tanner and Linda hoped that their daughter had finally learned her lesson, when  because of her ill-placed stubbornness, she was almost killed in a cave-in.

Morally at heart, Macey is a decent girl, when steered in the right direction, away from her wild side, sweet as clover and as potentially toxic. Nearing her twenty-first birthday,  her habit of developing unrequited crushes has taken its toll.  She has been fortunate the groups she hung with were decent young people. No one regarded her seriously, or took advantage of her vulnerability.  Macey was pretty, blonde, slender, with attractive curves. But she distanced prospective suitors with her flirtatious over anxiousness to form a relationship the moment she met someone who fit her idea of the perfect hero and offered her a friendly smile. The few who fell for her first, but did not fit her view of the perfect physical specimen, she steered away from, or with the utmost kindness, firmly rejected them, even Cal, the Driscolls’ younger son, a fine young man, and new foreman on their ranch.  He saw past the silky blonde hair, the pretty face and slender form, and the curves, and the ill-placed stubbornness.  He saw into her heart, morally and intrinsically kind.  She just had not figured out where she fit in.  He wished it was in his arms, but she didn’t want him.  If he’d been as handsome as his older brother, Tom, and as smart, teaching History at Montana Tech, she’d be his wife by now. But, no matter.  The Driscoll stubbornness ran in his veins. He would protect her,  appreciated or not, at least until she found someone who saw her as he did, and captured her heart….

Paula Freda’s The Girl in Blue Velvet Who Fell From the Stars – Available at as ebook and paperback

Excerpt: She gave herself one last look in the mirror above the bureau. Fiona had helped her choose a wardrobe. “Wear this one, tonight,” she had advised, a simple but elegant pink short-sleeved, A-line sheath with a scooped neckline, not too high and not too low, showing enough of her neck and chest to make her desirable, but not available. A thin silver bracelet dangled from her wrist and coordinated her single strand necklace and pendant earrings. Good choices, Jessica thought. The dress did not detract from her naïveté, a trait that Ben hadn’t yet admitted to himself, he liked about her from their first meeting. The doorbell rang again, this time more insistent. She had a complicated job ahead of her, to convince Ben to fold to his initial attraction to her. As for herself, the human term, love at first sight, although often not a reliable truism for the human mind, in the case of her civilization, was extremely reliable. The heels of her pink leather shoes clicked across the tiled floors. She intentionally avoided the oriental area rug centered under the coffee table and the gray suede couch, to avoid snagging the narrow heels, they as well, not too low and not too high. The bell rang a third time. Patience was not his best quality, but then, neither had it been hers when she decided to come here. Something they both needed to work on. “I’m coming,” Jessica called apologetically. She reached to unlock the door, then remembered Fiona’s advice always to look through the eye hole, to see who was behind the door before she opened it. She did as advised. Ben waited, dry faced, but spiffy in a Stetson, tan blazer and pants, beige shirt and black bolo tie, the two braided leather strings clipped with a thumb-sized oval eye stone. She took a deep breath to calm the accelerated beating of her heart, contemplated her own self-worth, and unchained and unlocked the door. She opened it wide, greeting Ben with a welcoming smile. Excerpt: “Too soon. I showed Ben too soon. You were right not to tell Lester the truth all these years for fear of losing him.”She turned pleading eyes to her friend. “Oh, Fiona, I should have waited!” For the first time in her young life, Jessica burst into tears. Fiona clasped her in a sisterly embrace. “Dearest, don’t be upset. He loves you. I broke the rules and looked into his mind for you. That man adores you. I assure you. He’ll come around. You’ll see.” “No … no. He … he thinks I’m insane.” Fiona pressed Jessica to her heart. “I’ve known Ben since he started working for the magazine. He’s a good man. He won’t abandon you. Tell me what happened.” Jessica swallowed the gulp in her throat. “I know … he won’t … leave me,” she said between body-wracking sobs. “But for his own … happiness … I may have to … leave him.”
