COWBOY IN CHARGE IS NEW FROM BARBARA WHITE DAILLE!
Caroline, thank you for inviting me to visit again!
Readers, I’m sharing a peek into my brand-new
release, COWBOY IN CHARGE. To beat
the summer heat, I’ve chosen a clip intended to help you think cool thoughts.
COWBOY IN CHARGE Excerpt
A banana split wouldn’t have been his first choice of
dessert in January, but it never dropped off his personal menu. He wondered how
much of Layne’s agreement was driven by the boy’s eagerness to have ice cream
and how much of it came from her need to sit down.
They were the only ones in the place, which allowed her
to argue with him about who would pay for their order.
“You bought my groceries,” she said in a low voice when
Shay had moved away to assemble his banana split. “Getting dessert is the least
I can do.”
“You never pay when I’m with you at the Big Dipper,” he

They had left the carriage parked outside the shop. She
set the baby carrier on the far edge of the table near the wall and took off

“Close enough to it, and I wasn’t about to stand down.”
He dug into his banana split and held up a mouthful of
vanilla ice cream. “You sure you don’t want any? I can always get another
“Too tame for you, huh? You always went for the fancy
ones, the chocolate-marshmallow swirl or the pistachio-walnut-mint.”
“I’m surprised you remembered.” She didn’t meet his eyes.
“Are you kidding? Those were premium flavors. I had to
pay extra for `em.”
That got her looking at him. “Don’t even try to make me
feel guilty about that. Your banana splits and triple-dip sundaes cost three
times as much as my cones.”
He laughed and spooned up a mound of chocolate ice cream
covered with whipped cream. “We spent plenty of time here in our dating days,
“It was everybody’s favorite hangout.”
“I’ll agree with that. And I won’t point out how you
sidestepped the question.”
