Book Tour & Giveaway ~ Maverick, In the Company of Snipers #9, by Irish Winters

Irish Winters is an award-winning author who dabbles in poetry, grandchildren, and rarely (as in extremely rarely) the kitchen. More prone to be outdoors than in, she grew up the quintessential tomboy on a farm in rural Wisconsin, spent her teenage years in the Pacific Northwest, but calls the Wasatch Mountains of Northern Utah home. For now.

The wife of one handsome husband and mother of three perfect sons, Irish divides her time between writing at home, and travelling the country with her man while – writing. (Seriously, what else?)

She believes in making every day count for something, and follows the wise admonition of her mother to, “Look out the window and see something!”

He’s heartsick and battle-weary.

Maverick Carson returned home from war with too much pain and not enough honor. Searching for a way to forgive and forget, he quits The TEAM and starts to walk. He's walked all the way to Wyoming when the sight of a pretty girl riding a massive draft horse steals his breath—until the hillside gives way beneath the horse. Rushing to her aid, he runs straight into the world of China Wolf, the headstrong owner of the Wild Wolf Ranch and the owner of the finest Percherons in the country.

She doesn’t need a man in her life.

Never has. Never will. China Wolf has responsibility enough between the rowdy horses she loves, the wayward sister she tolerates, and the precocious niece she adores. Besides, Maverick’s made it clear he’d rather hit the road than hang around her ranch. Why should she care? She doesn’t—not until she glimpses the cowboy in his eyes. Maybe she needs a man after all.

Just. This. One.

Character Casting

Maverick - Atesh Salih

Maverick was one of Alex Stewart's junior agents before he got fed up with life and walked away from The TEAM. Recently returned from Afghanistan, he's a Marine who loves his country, but he still hasn't come to grips with the death of his younger brother. Dark-haired, scruffy and brooding, he's looking for something when he ends up in Wyoming. He just doesn't know what.

 China - Zooey Deschanel

China Wolf is the determined owner of the Wild Wolf horse ranch in Wyoming. Long, black hair and deep blue eyes, she manages her 'kids,' a couple dozen Percheron draft horses, as well as a couple hundred head of cattle. Except for the help of two ranch hands, she does everything pretty much by herself and she's okay with that arrangement. She loves her life. The hard work. The Wild Wolf. Her kids. All of it.

Leesel - Karlie Kloss

Leezel, China's sister, is one big party waiting to happen, and not in a good way. She's been running from responsibility since the day she was born. A mean-spirited woman, she's raising her daughter, Kyrie, on her own, not that that's a good thing. Leezel has chopped, chopped reddish-brown hair, dresses inappropriately, would rather be drunk than not, and chases men. Maverick included.

Kyrie -Eloise Webb

Kyrie is a five year old, skinny little girl. She looks just like her Aunt China whom she adores and calls Andy China. She has a speech impediment, not that Leezel would notice. Kyrie loves the stray cats that hang around China's barn, but mostly, she craves China's love and affection.
