The Bribe by Willa Nash is now live!
Duke Evans didn’t expect to interrupt a beautiful woman in a staring contest with a bison on his favorite hiking trail. He also didn’t expect to see her again after rescuing her from the surly beast. As the sheriff in Calamity, Montana, he’s had his fair share of surprises but none as pleasant as pulling over a shiny black car and finding his mysterious hiking companion behind the wheel.
Only, she lied to Duke. She gave him a name as fake as her hair color. According to her driver’s license, her real name is Lucy Ross, the famous country music singer whose sudden disappearance has been a hot topic in the media over the past two weeks.
He’s not sure why Lucy lied about her identity or why she’s in Calamity. And she’s not talking. Instead, she offers him a bribe to keep her secret.
But Duke doesn’t want her money. He wants to know why this woman is on the run. And as long as the star shines on his badge, he’s going to find out.

Tempting new series that I couldn’t put down. Duke pulled me in RIGHT AWAY! He was an all-around good guy. Just what Lucy was NOT expecting. Lucy was mysterious and secretive. Something about her made you want to know what spooked her to run to Calamity. Loved the suspense and the slow burn as these two gravitated towards one another. And you knew that somehow this was destiny. Every time they were together sparks flew and made my little ol’ heart so happy. Honestly these types of stories are exactly what I need. I’m so excited about a book with the good ol’ boy who the town loves that steps up and takes care of business. Thank you.
Duke Evans was as addictive as hot stage lights and a silky, Southern twang.
He’d almost kissed me. And I’d almost let him. I’d find a way to get over this bribe issue if it meant indulging my crush on the local sheriff. Sure, things would get awkward when I brought him a wad of cash. After all, maybe the reason he’d almost kissed me was for the money.
The woman who hadn’t been kissed in a long, long time didn’t care.
“What’s your plan for the rest of the day?” Duke asked as he drove toward the farmhouse. He rolled down the windows and the breeze tousled the long strands of hair that had escaped his hat.
“Not much. I’ve been on a baking spree.”
“What’d you make?” he asked, his voice low and smooth.
Duke drove with one hand on the wheel while his other arm was propped on the console between us. I hadn’t really noticed a man’s driving posture before, but as with everything Duke, the should-have-been-mundane details jumped out at me like fireworks. His entire demeanor shouted confidence. He was so relaxed in his skin and sexy as hell. The man was driving and I was practically drooling.
He glanced over and raised an eyebrow. Right. He’d asked me a question.
I faced forward and unscrambled my brain. “Cookies. Cinnamon rolls. Banana muffins.”
“You’ve been busy.”
“There’s not much else for me to do. Going from a hare’s speed to turtle pace has been an adjustment. At this point, I’m searching for things to do. Hence the running this morning.”
“My mom’s a teacher. She always says it takes her a couple of weeks every summer to slow down and transition from kid wrangler to domestic goddess.” He reached into the cupholder and plucked out a packet of gum. “Want one?”
“Sure.” I unfolded the wrapper and popped the sweet mint stick into my mouth as he did the same, then I opened my mouth to say something and . . . whoa.
We were rolling through a different neighborhood than the one I’d walked through, but instead of staring at the homes and getting my bearings, my attention was locked on the bob of Duke’s Adam’s apple and the flex of his strong, square jaw.
I bet he had a talented tongue. My experience with men was relatively limited—fame was a jealous lover and wanted nothing more than your undivided attention—but if a man could chew gum like that, I bet his tongue knew its way around a woman’s lips.
And other places.
