Read from the Book
It was Monday, the worst day in the world to try to get a prescription filled. Behind the counter, the poor harassed male druggist was trying to field the telephone calls, fill prescriptions, answer questions from patrons and delegate duties to two assistants. It was always like this after the weekend, Cy Parks thought with resignation. Nobody wanted to bother the doctor on his days off, so they all waited until Monday to present their various complaints. Hence the rush on the Jacobsville Pharmacy. Michael, the pharmacist on duty, was smiling pleasantly despite the crush of customers, accustomed to the Monday madness. That group putting off a visit to the doctor until Monday included himself, Cy mused. His arm was throbbing from an encounter with one of his angry Santa Gertru disbulls late on Friday afternoon. It was his left arm, too, the one that had been burned in the house fire back in Wyoming. The angry rip needed ten stitches, and Dr. "Copper" Coltrain had been irritated that Cy hadn''t gone to the emergency room instead of letting it wait two days and risking gangrene. The sarcasm just washed right off; Coltrain could have saved his breath. Over the years, there had been so many wounds that Cy hardly felt pain anymore. With his shirt off, those wounds had been apparent to Coltrain, who wondered aloud where so many bullet wounds came from. Cy had simply looked at him, with those deep green eyes that could be as cold as Arctic air. Coltrain had given up. Stitches

The Winter Soldier
Everyone in Jacobsville, Texas, steered clear of taciturn Cy
Parkseveryone but the spirited Lisa Monroe, who electrified the
formidable loner with her tantalizing kisses. Their fiery passion
escalated when the soldier returned from the line of dutyand

desperado. Clearly Cy was getting mighty possessive of this
enchanting woman who needed the type of safeguarding only he could
provide. But who would protect the beguiling bride from him
He was strong, seductive and set in his ways. She was shy,
unassuming and achingly innocent. Yet when Jordan made it his
personal crusade to help Libby hold on to her beloved homestead,
everyone in Jacobsville knew it was just a matter of time before
wedding bells chimed. But a cattleman''s pride was a force to be
reckoned with. Could Libby accomplish what no woman had before and
tame this Long, Tall Texan''s restless heart?

"Simply wonderful. Reading The Program somehow reminded me of reading Shakespeare. Each page is so laden with verities that a slow read is mandated. So, read slow and thrive." -- Walter M. Bortz II, M.D., bestselling author of Dare to Be 100 and We Live Too Short and Die Too Long
