The following is from my third book, Bargain Bessie, Book 7 in the multi-author series, Sweethearts of Jubilee Springs.
Zeb eased down into his wooden office chair with its contoured wooden slats holding up the back rest. He laced his fingers together as he placed them in front of him on the desk and leaned forward. He deliberately did not invite Eddie Joe to sit in one of the two chairs in front of the desk. He felt somewhat mollified when he saw his foreman had the sense to remain standing rather than assume he had an open invitation to sit.
Zeb studied Eddie Joe’s face and suppressed showing his satisfaction over the man’s discomfort. For, if what Rusty had told him was true, Zeb intended the discomfort to get more intense before it got better.
Zeb kept his voice quiet and void of emotion. “Have a good time in Jubilee Springs yesterday?”
I now have the first three books in the series compiled into a collection titled Independence Day 1881 – Zina Abbott’s Sweethearts of Jubilee Springs. It is available both as an ebook and in print on Amazon. If you have a Kindle Unlimited account and have not yet read all three of my first three books, this book containing three novellas will count as one book on your KU queue.
