Sweet September Skye

The McCullough Romance Series #2

Author(s): Verity Norton

Missing her family and her horse, Skye McCullough has returned home to Canden Valley to live and work in the family pub, a perfect venue for flirting with the cowboys  who wander in for a beer as they’re passing through town. But she is very selective. She will only go out with the ones with whom she is certain to have no future.

The moment Nick Callen happens into The Village Pub for directions to the river, he is smitten with the sassy bartender. So much so that he uproots his writer’s life in San Francisco to move to Canden Valley and tend bar alongside her. But getting Skye to go out with him is a challenge for which the highly-successful journalist did not bargain.


Chapter 1

Skye McCullough pulled her refurbished blue Mustang over to the side of the road and stared down the street at the tiny village. Damn. She was a sucker for this stupid valley. As hard as she tried, she couldn’t leave for long. And every time she left, she wanted to come home after a day away.

Of course, missing her horse had a lot to do with it. So did the cowboys with roaming paws with whom she was inclined to take off. She had thought it was going to be different this time, that he would be different. But then, she always thought that.

She glanced from one side of the street to the other. It was a short street which made the center of the village feel more like a square. Along one side was her Aunt Emily and Uncle Palmer’s pub where she worked. Beside that was the book café where she spent most of her breaks. Down the street and facing her was the Canden Valley General Store, owned by her grandparents, temporarily being run by her brother Sean. Along that same street was the Thistle and Ivy Bed and Breakfast, owned by her parents and named for her mom, Ivy. Beyond that was her Cousin Anne’s dance studio.

She shook her head in disgust. Her family owned half the businesses in Canden Valley. No wonder she kept trying to escape. A breeze caught her long hair, blowing it softly in her face. Along with the breeze came the sweet scent of jasmine and rose, a combination she loved, and only one of the reasons she knew she would have a difficult time leaving the valley.

She continued driving for a half block, pulled into a parking spot, climbed out of the car, slammed the door shut behind her, and headed for the pub.
