T'n'T's Confidential: Lorraine Nelson

Happy Tuesday, lovelies! Today I have with me author Lorraine Nelson and her latest release from the Thunder Creek Ranch Series, Cameron's Quest. 

Cameron Manning has never forgotten his first love. Of Irish descent, he met red-haired, fiery tempered Lacey Kerrigan in England, but her family returns to Ireland unexpectedly and they haven’t any means of contact. He finds her and receives the surprise of his life.

Lacey is thrilled to see Cameron, but is afraid of being hurt again. She keeps her distance and rebuffs his advances while he’s in Ireland, certain that a long distance affair will never work. But when tickets arrive for her to visit his home in Canada, she realizes his love is true and is willing to give them a second chance.

Fate intervenes when they find a murdered man on Cameron’s back deck. All evidence points to Cameron as the killer. Can their reawakened love survive the stress of a murder investigation? Or will it be the catalyst that drives them apart forever?

How about an Excerpt? 
Cameron had been a randy youth of twenty-five when he left the ranch to go backpacking around the world. His tour began by hiking across Canada to the east coast, stopping whenever and wherever the mood struck. From Halifax, he’d flown across the Atlantic to England, and it was there he’d met the love of his life, although he hadn’t known it at the time. 
Lacey Kerrigan was a beauty! All luscious curves and a fiery redhead to boot. She’d been nineteen and on vacation with her family. He’d literally bumped into her while at Buckingham Palace to witness the Changing of the Guard. From then on, they were virtually inseparable. He and Lacey had managed to sneak away privately several times for lusty moments of true bliss. 
Their tryst ended two weeks later when her family returned home to Ireland without any warning. They hadn’t exchanged addresses, phone numbers, nothing. He’d been devastated, but in the way of youth, he pulled up stakes and continued his tour.
Oh, to be young again! To go on his way with not a care in the world. No regrets. No responsibilities.
Except he couldn’t escape the memory of her. Lacey’s lovely features had remained with him throughout the years since, haunting the hours whether awake or asleep. He’d never found anyone to take her place, and he’d finally come to realize that no one could.
So he’d left last spring after the branding of new stock was finished, determined to find her. If he’d known she owned and operated her own business, that search would’ve been a lot easier. He could’ve Googled her name and gotten all the details, but he hadn’t even thought of that. No, he’d just gone off and located her the hard way.
Did she appreciate it? Not hardly.
She hadn’t given an inch in all the time he’d been there, determined to stay independent, no matter how hard he’d tried to resume their relationship.
Would she accept his invitation? Or was he doomed to be disappointed again?
Cam thought about moving to Ireland, but he was Canadian—a cowboy. All he knew was ranching.
