Linnea Alexis, Newest Release Snowbound with Exclusive Excerpt & Review

LinneaAfter two failed marriages, blues singer Lacey Pine took to living a vagabond musician’s existence until she inherited her grandmother’s lodge in Crystal River, Wyoming, where Dane Richardson and a fateful snowstorm are about to show her the best reason to settle down.


Blues singer Lacey Pine is unlucky in love and has the emotional battle scars to prove it. Men have become transient dalliances, untrustworthy for more than a night or two, so when she inherits her grandmother’s rundown lodge in the hills of Crystal River, Wyoming, Lacey considers renovating and staying…or selling. Either way, she’s in this alone and means to stay that way.


Dane Richardson had it all, a successful military career and the woman of his dreams, until the ravages of war nearly cost him his leg. Discharged and disabled, abandoned by his girl, Dane finds himself adrift on the sea of life—until he takes a wintry trip to Crystal River, Wyoming, where a foolish moment of self-pity and a fierce snowstorm turn trying to keep warm into the best thing that ever happened to him. Now he just has to convince Lacey Pine that he’s worth risking her heart.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“How did you like the show?”
Leaning back in his chair, he nodded. “Very…very…much.”
“This may seem like an odd question, but I need to ask you something.” She pulled the ring box from her pocket but kept it concealed in her hand. “Did you leave an item of value in the tip jar?”
“Define…‘item of value’.”
 She opened her hand and revealed the ring box.
“I’d like to buy you a drink,” he said without batting an eye.
“All you had to do is ask. I can’t accept this.” She dropped the ring box on the table. Had he just broken off an engagement? Was his proposal refused? Either way, she didn’t want the ring. “I don’t know you. I don’t even know your name.”
“That’s irrelevant. I like your singing.” He pointed at the box. “Consider it a tip.”
“A much-too-generous tip.” She shoved the ring box at him. “It’s beautiful. But I’m sorry. I can’t accept it.”
He pushed it back. “Keep it.” A twinge of hostility sounded in his voice.
“It looks like it’s worth a lot of money,” she said. “If you don’t want to keep it, hock it. Or sell it on eBay. Get something for it. Don’t just give it away.”
“If you don’t accept it as…appreciation…for your fine voice, I’ll give it…to someone else.” She stifled a gasp.
“If you don’t mind me asking—”
“I do mind.” He pulled out the chair next to his and patted the seat. “Sit. I wanna buy you a drink.”
Reluctantly, she grabbed the chair and moved it farther away. Since her divorces, she’d surprised herself by her boldness—and bravery. Or stupidity. She eased herself into the chair and set her tote on the floor. Why was she always picking up strays? Always being a Good Samaritan? Would she ever learn to walk away?
“Back to your question,” he said.
“What question?” She’d forgotten she’d asked him one.
“You wanted to…ask me something.”
