Author: Anne Jolin
Series: Willow Bay Stables #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance & Sports Equestrian Romance
London Daniels is returning home to Willow Bay, Alberta, on the heels of a televised loss. She blew her shot at the Summer Olympics and cost Canada the gold medal in dressage.
During her years of training abroad, her family’s stable has fallen on hard times, and thus, they’ve accepted an offer to board the racehorses of Branson Tucker, the infamous tycoon, for the winter.
London lacks conviction after her ill-fated fall. And as if returning to her hometown to watch her epic failure replay on everyone’s big screen isn’t torture enough, she’s expected to cater to a man with an ego bigger than her hundred-acre farm just to earn a dime.
Is London saddling up for another ride that will leave both her heart and her ass in the dirt? Or could the handsome, unwanted guest at Willow Bay Stables be her second chance to go for gold?


After helping her up onto the tailgate, I
grab the wine and two glasses. When I join her in the bed of the truck, I pour
us each a cup and then lift my glass up to hers for a toast.
“Here’s to first dates.”
After clinking her cup with mine, she
takes a delicate sip, and the rumble in my chest comes unexpectedly as she
swallows the wine.
As if on cue, the radio changes, and the
first twangs of Jackson Young’s “If It Ain’t Too Much To Ask” drift out across
the lake.
After we set our cups down on the edge of
the truck bed, her arms wrap around my neck. My palm splays over her lower back
as I tuck the sweetness of her body against mine.
“You makin’ it a habit of wooing me with
your dancin’ skills, cowboy?” She laughs, and the way it mixes with the song
has to be the most heavenly thing I’ve ever heard.
My cheek brushes hers as we dance closer.
“That depends.”
“On?” Her breath whispers against my ear.
“If it’s working or not.”
She laughs again, and with God as my
witness, I’m a lucky bastard to be holding her right now. “It might be,” she
Her body was made for mine. Pressed
together, we’re even more perfect. Strawberry wine dousing our inhibitions in
wild desire.
The chorus to the song is coming up, and
knowing I don’t suck at least half as much as she does, I sing softly into her
ear, albeit still out of tune. She joins me, singing adorably off tune into my
ear. “I know it ain’t an easy life,
people can tell you that”
—She hums along, folding her body closer around
mine—“but to ask for a little bit, just a
little bit back, If it ain’t too much to ask..”
it ain’t too much to ask,”
her voice sings adorably
off tune into my ear.
I chuckle, and she reaches down to elbow
me in the side before her eyes find mine once again.
it ain’t too much to ask, cowboy…I could really go for that kiss right about
She tries to sing along with the song,
but by adding her own words, she fails miserably.
But it’s the thought that counts.
Do I hate that she felt she had to ask for
it? Bet your ass I do. Will it stop
me from giving her what she wants? Not a
chance in hell.
Tipping my invisible cowboy hat towards
her with one hand, I put the other in the hair at the base of her neck.
“Nothing you ask will ever be too much, London.” With that, I give in to the
greatest temptation I’ve ever had and every desire I’ve ever dreamed of.
It’s only with unique restraint that I’m
able to keep my lips from fully crashing down onto hers. Instead, I take her
softly, certain I’ve died and gone to heaven at the first taste of her. When
she whimpers, the greed in me takes the opportunity to slip my tongue into her
mouth, claiming all she’ll give me. Her hands pull at the base of my neck,
desperate to have me closer as the heat in our kiss grows deeper as the song
comes to a close.
After breaking apart, I rest my forehead
on hers, running my thumb across her bottom lip. Then I sing the very last
line, holding her close.
I kissed the prettiest girl I’ve every
laid eyes on while dancing on the tailgate of my truck in the middle of
nowhere, and it was the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

Hey y’all,

I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns, and driving in trucks.
I never expected to be an author. A massage therapist? Yes. Take over the family construction company? Yes. But an author? No. Writing was something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful to discover that love, and I’m truly grateful to say I’ve found my passion.
Since I’ve always been a creative person, it feels amazing to harness all of that energy and use it to tell a story I love. I enjoy incorporating bits of my real life into the stories I write. What parts are true? Hah. I’ll never tell—what would be the fun in that?
If I could leave y’all with one thing, it’s that life’s far too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions, hold on tight to the things that inspire you, and chase your dreams relentlessly. I can promise you without a doubt that you won’t regret it. I know I don’t.
Mad love,
Anne Jolin
Anne kindly agreed to answer my grilling questions on her writing process:

What do you write?

Contemporary Romance

What genre do you favor?

Contemporary Romance

When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?

I’ve always enjoyed writing but I’d never considered the possibility of being an author until July of 2014. I wrote a review for a romance novel I’d just finished and the author, who is now a dear friend of mine, suggested I try writing. I am so very grateful that I listened to her.

Are you published?

I’m self-published.

Where can you be found on social media?

Just about everywhere, although I typically tend to favor Instagram or Facebook.

Website or blog:





What do you think is the best way to publish these days?

I’m not sure there is a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to publish a book, I would think it’s more of a personal preference and what helps you to achieve your creative goals. That being said, I am only self-published and have not yet pursued traditional publishing.

What are your favorite genres to read? Why?

I read mostly contemporary or Erotic Romance, but I do occasionally enjoy reading some Paranormal Romance as well. I usually tend to pick novels that I can escape into while still relating to them, and contemporary does that for me with every read.

Do your characters talk to you?

Oh, heck yes! Sometimes they won’t shut up, even, but on the flip side, they can sometimes be shy and that can be a pain in the butt.

How do you approach starting a new book? What is your writing process?

Is flying by the seat of your pants a process? Kidding! Well, maybe not completely kidding. I don’t plot my books, but I usually do start with an idea of where they will go. After that, I’m just along for the ride as the characters take over.

What are the best writing books or blogs you’ve ever read?

To be honest, I’m not sure I’ve really read any books or blogs on the process of writing. If y’all know any, hit me up!

What are your non-writing hobbies, or what do you do to relax?

I spend a lot of time with my pitbull puppy, Ghost and I absolutely am completely and utterly obsessed with movies, I can usually be found watching one!

What was your best date ever?

Hmm. Tough call. Can I pick one that I created? Branson takes London in Change Rein to the edge of a lake and they dance in the bed of his pick-up truck, swoon city. I’d be puddy for something like that.

Navy SEAL or cowboy?

Oh, lord. I am a sucker for a cowboy.

Chocolate or chips?

Chips! I could put away a bag of salt and vinegar chips like nobody’s business!

If you could have a superpower what would it be? Why?

FLYING. Traffic is the devil.

Fancy restaurant or picnic?

Picnic, they’re just so dang cute!

Beer or wine?


Favorite author?

Aurora Rose Reynolds

Smooth or hairy?
