AJ Nuest – Blog The Book

Another new event at Jill James, romance author. My first Blog The Book post; highlighting a fellow author’s book – today we have AJ Nuest, a fellow TWRP author with her book, Jezebel’s Wish.

Isn’t that a beautiful cover? Here is a little tidbit about the book:

Haunted by nightmares, tormented by guilt, Jezebel came to Redemption Ranch to escape the past—except now she’s stuck in the middle of nowhere with no redemption in sight. When her mother pushes her into riding lessons with local veterinarian Matthias Saunders, Jezebel balks. Sure, the doctor is gorgeous, but he’s completely obnoxious and knows how to push every one of her buttons.

Only her deep connection with The Reverend, a gentle stallion who guards her darkest secrets, has her agreeing to spend any more time with Dr. Saunders. Caring for the stallion is the first bright spot in her life in months, and if being around the horse means she has to deal with Matthias Saunders, then so be it. Surely a city girl like her can handle one country vet—even one with disturbing blue eyes. Can’t she?

Makes you want to know more, doesn’t it: Here is the excerpt:

Jezzy stopped. “I thought I was having a riding lesson.”

“You are.” He nodded toward the empty paddock. “Go in.”

“Go in?” Jezzy propped a hand on her hip. “You sure you know what you’re doing? Because it was my understanding that an actual horse is needed for a riding lesson.”

“Don’t you think it would be wise at this juncture to leave the understanding up to the professionals?”

Jezzy rolled her eyes. “You’re making this way too easy. Professionals? Please. Don’t get me started.”

“Why not? Getting you started is exactly what I’m here for.”

Jezzy’s jaw dropped. She didn’t quite know how to interpret that remark.

He held out the rope. “Now go in. And take this lead line with you.” Steely blue determination glinted in his eyes. There was no way he was going to give in.

Jezzy snatched the lead line from his hand and stormed through the gate, then turned when heclosed it behind her.

He put a foot on the bottom railing and rested against the gate, facing the horizon. “Take the chair to the center of the paddock and sit down.”

“And just exactly how is that supposed to teach me to ride?”

He cocked an eyebrow. “You want out of the deal?”

Jezzy’s fist clenched tight around the lead line. What she wanted was to march back to the
fence and smack his face.

AJ Nuest lives in northwest Indiana with her loving husband and two beautiful children. She is the author of two contemporary romance novels.

  3. Hi AJ and Jill! I must admit that I’ve typed, deleted then typed this comment at least twice now and I’m still stumped about what to say. It’s been an extremely long work week and my brain is fried, you know? Just wanted to support AJ because she’s always there for me. 🙂

    • Sarah, nice of you to visit. I’m a bit brain-fried this week too. Finishing up edits with editor going, “Deeper POV, dig deeper, really feel her emotions.” Brain-fried!!!

  4. I think we’re all having Friday (or should I say “fried-day”) today, as evidenced by the fact that I posted my response twice above. I just love you ladies. Seriously, I do. Thanks so much for stopping by and all the support I continuously get from all you lovely roses. So glad I know you, each and every one!

  5. Everytime I watch this trailer, I love it more and more. Just wanted you to know, AJ, that my crying jag is over. I’ve finished your charming, yet emotionally wrenching book. Wow. Simply wow. Don’t pass this one by, ladies.

  6. Awww…Vonnie! You made my day. Thank you so much! Wow is right, but wow because I can’t believe how lucky I am to be surrounded by such wonderful women. ((hugs))!

  7. LOL! Oh…this is so great for my ego. Maybe I should go clean the catbox quick, just to bring myself back to reality. Thanks, everyone! I’m buying you all a round of umbrella drinks at RT in Chicago next year!!

  8. Are you kidding me? Jill! This has been the BESTEST way EVER to end what was a very long, trying day. Thank you sooooo much for having me, my friend. Can’t wait to return the favor on Monday!

  9. Okay, that does it, dang-flabbit! Even though Amie Louellen’s on vaction, I’m telling her to stop on over here. She’s gotta see these nice comments about her trailer!!

  10. Awh! You ladies are awesome! Trailer wasn’t hard with such a great book to promote. If you haven’t read Jezzy’s story, do it NOW! :). But Vonnie’s right, get a box of tissues. You’re gonna need ’em! 🙂
