When writing a book, my real quirks are I can write in a crowded loud place as long as I don't know anyone. It's harder to write at home where my kids are fighting and screaming and constantly needing my attention, so every Sunday, I like to go to my local coffee shop and write in solitude. I also tend to write better after noon, after one or more cups of coffee, white mochas, or redbull sunrises. My music playlist changes but I usually prefer country. The place I sit is very important. I have to be comfortable or I can't write anything but garbage. I like to move around and I just bought a lap desk that gives me the freedom to do so (think back to the 80's...bean bag pillow under a flat piece of particle board.) It is awesome for in the recliner or my comfy office chair.

As far as other writer quirks, it usually takes me about an hour to get into a groove, so the longer I am left alone, the better I do. For some reason when I tell my husband and kids this though, it never sinks in. Oh well. :-)


Miranda “Rand” Coleman has seen the way love can wreck a person and wants absolutely no part of it. When her granddaddy dies suddenly, he leaves a clause in his will that has her married in three months or she loses her inheritance. Unwilling to give up the Double C Ranch, she starts to set her eyes towards the eligible men in town, with little luck in finding a man she can stand for a minute let alone a year. Until she sets eyes on the new veterinarian and enlists the help of her womanizing best friend, Jake, to help.

Jake Hansen is a single guy who likes his women pretty and uncomplicated, with no plans to settle down anytime soon. When he decides to help Rand hook her man, he has no idea the effect watching Rand change would have on him. Especially when she starts letting her gorgeous brown hair down and showing off a body he didn’t even know she had. Before too long, Jake isn’t just lusting after his best friend, he’s feeling downright possessive. But when it comes down to the wire, will he get over his issues and step up to the alter...or lose the only woman he was ever meant to love?


Hell and Damnation, I’m dying.

Rand tried to open her eyes but the early morning light sent shooting pain from her frontal lobe to the back of her skull. Her mouth tasted like a baked cow pie and her stomach was churning painfully. She moved a bit and felt something hard tighten around her waist. Her eyes popped open, despite her body’s protests and she stared into Jake’s sleeping face. She was spread over him like a blanket and it was his arm around her middle keeping her immobile.

Trying to be easy, she reached down to grab his hand, moving it off her waist as gently as she could so as to not wake him. As soon as she was free, she rolled off the bed and stood up, staring down at him in confusion. Jake Hansen, asleep in her bed. They hadn’t shared a bed since the concert trip to Dallas, when Red had refused to sleep with Jake and whined about sleeping on the floor. So Rand had crawled in with Jake and let Red have the second bed to himself. She hadn’t even been aware of Jake that night, just drifted off into a deep sleep, but boy was she aware of him now.

She walked around the bed, stumbling a bit as her stomach lurched. Damn, she was never going to drink again. She slipped into the bathroom, grabbed her tooth brush and brushed her teeth, feeling a little less disgusting as she ran the bristles through her mouth. She tried to remember what had happened the night before, but patches were missing.


An obsessive bookworm for twenty years, Codi Gary likes to write sexy small-town contemporary romances with humor, grand gestures, and blush-worthy moments. When she’s not writing, she can be found reading her favorite authors, squealing over her must- watch shows and playing with her children. She lives in Idaho with her family.
