Now, I’m very busy so let's just end this and—”
Season blinked in astonishment. He was dismissing her? “Are you saying I’m not qualified solely because I am female?” she demanded of him, feeling her temper rising. Not caring about making a professional impression anymore, she stepped up close to the desk, daring him to look away from her.
“You said it, not me,” Ty Masters murmured, staring directly into her eyes, unflinching.
Now she understood why everyone was so puzzled as to her presence. It all made sense now. Why hadn't she picked up on it quicker? Fury, hot and raw, rose up within her, heating her like lava. She stood ramrod straight, using every ounce of self-control not to slap him. She blinked, chasing the red away that swam before her. She could probably claim sexual harassment, but she wanted this job.
Dammit, she deserved this job. Slapping her hands down flat on the desk instead, scattering papers, she leveled her stare into his cool blue pools, noticing with some satisfaction a tiny tick begin working in his jaw.
“My name and my gender are of no concern to you or at this interview,” she spoke clearly and distinctly. “My abilities and credentials, however, are.” Her gaze fell on a sheet of paper. Her reference page. “Now, if you will be so kind as to review my resume, you will see my qualifications are superior and my references are top notch. They adequately prove I’m capable of doing the job you are asking.”
Willing it to happen, she held her breath, concentrating, waiting until he did as she ordered. He was going to look at her application if it killed her. And him.

November is a time to be thankful. What are you most thankful for this year?
My faith as a Christian has gotten me through some terrible life events. This past year my dearest friend was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. What a horrible disease that is! Watching her decline, both mentally and emotionally, has drained us both. I am thankful for the strength to be at her side, even when it feels impossible.
I am also most thankful for the readers who enjoy my books and the passion to write more.
Why is your featured book worth snuggling up to?
Season Moriarty is the kind of woman every woman would want for a friend. She is kind, tough, brave, loyal, and more. The kind that would show up with wine or chocolate, whichever the situation merits. Ty Masters is the man every woman thinks she needs—handsome and rich—until Season points out women can make their own lives the way we want them. She is quick to remind him he may be the master of the farm, but he will not own her.
What is not to like about these two opposites? They are perfect for snuggling up with. Toss in some horses, exciting horse races, and a bit of magical suspense, and better grab the cocoa too!

Ryan Jo Summers lives in Western North Carolina. Her first published non-fiction came in 2007 with articles for local, and eventually national, and on-line magazines. In 2012 she released her first fiction novel with a small press publisher. Since then, she has released countless articles and almost two dozen novels and novellas with assorted publishers. She also released two self-published books.
Ryan’s style in fiction writing would broadly be labeled as clean, sweet romance, but she stretches fingers out into the assorted sub-genres. On several occasions she weaves threads from different sub-genres into one book.
Ryan Jo’s other passion beyond writing is animals. She has worked as a veterinary technician, director in a non-profit rescue shelter, provided foster care, and more recently she worked as a dog walker and boarding service. She has a menagerie of rescued pets who keep her company and offer inspiration. Her rom-com book, “It Happened at the Park” was largely written during the time she and her collie, Ty, visited the community dog park. She has two dogs saved from traumatic origins, feral cats who adapted to the house cat lifestyle like Garfield took to lasagna, a bonded pair of bunnies, a flock of chickens, fish, and a talkative parrot who is currently in his “trying twenties’ stage.
Ryan Jo bought a century-old mountain cottage and when she’s not writing or working, she enjoys restoring the Victorian echoes inside and creating flower and vegetable gardens outside. Other interests include houseplants, baking and cooking—because the cutting and blending is therapeutic--working bent and wiggly word-find puzzles, exploring the nearby national forests, and of course, reading. While she lives land-locked in the mountains, she dreams of packing up her dogs and going to the beach.
