A Yankee Lady Stuck in the South
Divorced wasn’t a label Anna Martin ever wanted.  Now she’s a thousand miles from home, underemployed, and lonely, but she’s squeezing this lemon life gave her and turning it into lemon meringue pie. Never again will she let any man—especially another military man—get in the way of her career.

A Southern Gentleman Military Officer
Jackson Davis believes in family, football, and Uncle Sam. He treats ladies right, takes his uniform seriously, and he loves his dog, but he doesn’t reckon he’s built for true love. After all, if a man good as his daddy couldn’t do it right, what chance does Jackson have?

One Undeniable Attraction
These two vulnerable souls are as different as cornbread and ketchup, but they fit together like sweet butter on hot biscuits. Short-term, they’re exactly what the other needs. But when their hearts get involved, they’re both gonna end up with a big ol’ case of Southern Fried Blues.

Praise for Southern Fried Blues:

Coffee Time Romance Five Stars for Southern Fried Blues

Southern Fried Blues takes what some people seem to think is a glamorous life and brings it back home. Delane at Coffee Time Romance & More

I loved this book so much I hardly know where to start.Sacha at Gonna Need More Books

I would recommend Southern Fried Blues to anyone who likes sweet, quirky, southern contemporary romance, or who want an insight into real military life.Dee at Dee’s Book Blog

I didn’t want to shut off my Kindle and let the story end. I have a strong feeling I’ll be back to revisit Jackson & Anna Grace often.Jaime at For the Love of Books

What I love about this book is that it’s as much about Anna’s relationship with herself as it is about Anna’s relationship with Jackson. Elle at Sexy Book Times

Southern Fried Blues is a fun RomCom that grabs you by the ear and doesn’t let go to the end.Tobi at Forget the Housework, I’m Reading

Jackson, Jackson, Jackson, what can I say about our hero other than, smooth and sexy, toe curling, swoon worthy man.Marcie at The Reading Cafe

Night Owl ReviewsThis was a wonderful feel-good story that is perfect for a Sunday afternoon read and I look forward to seeing what else this author has to offer.Pauline at Night Owl Reviews

Southern Fried Blues will have you laughing because of the banter between the characters, cheering on a strong heroine, and swooning over the very gentlemanly hero.Amy at So Many Reads

There are so many smart and funny references in the book that it had me smiling and laughing. — Margaret at Best Sellers and Best Stellars

This was a great book filled with humor and southern charm and rednecks and I loved it!Samantha at L.S.K. Sweetheart Reviews

Now when I think of Jackson Davis my knees go weak. His southern charm and husky voice makes the pages steam up and if you wear glasses be prepared to wipe the steam away so you can keep reading.Stephanie at Book Soulmates

The love story is timeless and the happily ever after is forged from the fires of perseverance, strength, passion, hard work, acceptance and love. Elizabeth at Expressions of a Hopeful Romantic

 

Southern Fried Blues Excerpt

Anna braced herself, scooted into the car and cranked the engine. Steam flowed out the air vents. She tilted them away while the AC system caught up. After buckling in, she gave her rearview mirrors a quick check. The gear shifter seared her palm, but she gritted her teeth and put the car in reverse …
