February Book of the Month #RWISA

It is a great honor to hold the “Book of the Month” seat at RWISA for February!

So, I’m going to do a little more shameless self-promotion.

In a recent podcast, I was asked what kind of man Luke Stone (aka Rick Sikes) was.

He stood 6’2″ and had a larger-than-life persona. In the opening chapter of “Flowers and Stone,” this is shown by the way the owner of the night club reacted to him coming through the door with his band.

Here’s a short excerpt:

Just as her dance performance came to an end, she(Darlina) heard a commotion. Turning, she saw Marketa personally escorting a group of customers to the best table in the club. It was totally out of character for this spitfire of a woman to make a fuss over anyone. Marketa flitted around with her long elegant ivory cigarette holder in her hand.  

Amidst enthusiastic applause, the bright spotlight now off her, Darlina hurried to talk to Sherry.

“Who is that?”

Sherry rolled her eyes. “That’s Luke Stone and the Rebel Rousers. I can’t believe you don’t know that.”

“How would I know? You forget I don’t get out much other than here.”

“They are only the hottest band in the whole State of Texas.”

“Do you know them?”

“Hell yes, I know ‘em. Had a one-night stand with the drummer a year or so ago.”

With overwhelming curiosity, Darlina proposed, “Let me wait their table.”

Sherry shrugged her shoulders, “Suits me.”

Darlina hurried to the table carrying menus. “Evening folks, I’m Darlina, and I’ll be taking care of you tonight.”

Luke Stone, an assuming man over six feet tall with a swagger and crooked grin promptly replied, “Honey, are you sure about that?”

A hot flush spread across her cheeks at his implication. “Let me re-phrase that. I’ll be taking your order tonight. What can I get you to drink?”

“Well, seein’ as how you don’t serve whiskey here, guess I’ll be havin’ a cup of coffee,” Luke said, leaning back in his chair and lighting a King Edward cigar.   

Yes, that’s Rick (Luke) on the far right.

  3. Congratulations on having Flowers and Stone selected as a RWISA Book of the Month, Jan!

    I remember that scene where Darlina spies Rick when he’s in the club very well. Such an excellent story. I also remember when I first realized that Luke was Rick, and you were Darlina. Your relationship was one of the great love stories of all time. The Hallmark Channel is going to realize that one of these days and make your books into a movie. I can’t wait!!!!
