What’s it all about?
Shellie has always been a small town girl, who will do almost anything to save the life and people she has lived with forever. When Noel pops into her life, a not so small town kind of guy, things seem to be almost too good to be true. That is until she finds out who he truly is, but Shellie can’t seem to get that him out of her head. Will her past mold her future for Noel and her, or will he be the one to finally break down her defenses.

Alex’s UP All Night Tequila SUNRISE

Typically I find tequila the perfect drink for one of my many shot glasses but when Shellie and the girls are over I need something a bit sweeter for their ladylike palates. But you know me, I can’t just leave a Tequila Sunrise at the basic old recipe!

So I’ve added a few twists that I think you’ll enjoy. If not, skip everything but the tequila and the jalapeno and shoot it back like its Spring Break 1999! Continue reading Alex’s UP All Night Tequila SUNRISE

Alex’s Drunk Smoothie

When it’s too hot to go out I always I have tons of fresh fruit on hand. Yeah, yeah I know I’m a health nut so fresh fruit is healthy and full of blah, blah, blah. But when the temperature gets in the upper 80’s and higher but you still want to drink–because it’s the best way to avoid heat related rage!–without sweat dripping down your face. At least I do.

So when the weather gets like this I like to whip up a batch of my famous Drunk Smoothies. You’ve never heard of them? Well they’re famous here in Mustang Prairie. You get all that good stuff that’s in fruit (including water) and an ice cold way to get your drink on!  Continue reading Alex’s Drunk Smoothie

A Little Bit In Love



Ladies Who (Drink) Lunch Melon Ball Punch

It’s no secret that the ladies of Mustang Prairie love a good drink. Whether it is a bottle cold Riesling, a dirty martini or something more…girly, they will drink it up over gossip and plans for world domination!

Since the temperature is rising a “proper” lady will need a refreshing cocktail that keeps her cool while giving her a slight buzz. In that vein Alex has come up with the perfect lunchtime cocktail for her next get together…the Melon Ball Punch.

But this ain’t your grandma’s punch! This is a punch for the girls who don’t mind alcohol in the middle of a lazy summer day. Continue reading Ladies Who (Drink) Lunch Melon Ball Punch

N.D. Jackson Author Spotlight

The ladies at Writers Can’t Shine Without Readers did an author spotlight on yours truly–thanks so much! But what’s really cool is the audio excerpt, at least I thought so. If you haven’t had time to check it out yet, go HERE and listen!

If you haven’t jumped on the Mustang Prairie bandwagon yet, let me tell you that the lovely ladies in this town are loyal, loving, kind and caring. They are looking for love–sometimes in all the wrong places, as the song says–and this time around they won’t settle for less!

Shellie, the leading lady in book one, Conflict of Interest loves to cook, loves wine and adores daisies. She’s fiercely loyal and protective of her town and her fellow citizens. When Noel Hampton brings KitchenMart to town, he’ll have to go toe-to-toe with this spunky firebrand if he wants success. Find out what kind of sparks fly when these two come together!

Conflict Of Interest

Alex the lead in A Little Bit In Love, is Shellie’s best friend and frankly, she’s sick of the dating scene and she’s calling a time out on men. She has plenty to worry about with her gym/spa/salon World of Wonder, her friends and the small town she loves. But a holiday fling touches Alex more than she expected and Baxter isn’t willing to give her up. Can their affair last in the real world or is their short but sweet romance all that was meant to be?

After losing her birth parents
and her adopted parents Alexis Mabry is used to being alone. So after a year of
horrible dates with everyone from sugar baby wannabes to cross dressers, she
decides to stop dating altogether and focus on what matters most: her business
and her friends in Mustang Prairie.
When she meets a handsome
stranger on a trip to California she starts to wonder if its time to get back
in the game.
Baxter Thompsen spent the last
decade building his empire to the exclusion of everything but sex. Now tired of
the socialites and starlets, he wants someone real. When he does she only wants
a vacation fling and it’s up to Baxter to show her that lust is great, but love
is the…
