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….
