On the Golden Cliffs | Excerpt + Giveaway

JustRead Publicity Tours


One wrong post has sent influencer Lyla Taylor’s social media empire crashing to her feet. To save it, she’ll have to escape to rural Montana. Six weeks in a high-end spa won’t hurt… except, she’s not booked into a spa, but at a rustic Amish B&B. Suddenly, her roommates are raccoons, and her daily activities include hanging laundry. Thanks, but no thanks. Lyla is ready to hit delete and head back to civilization.

Amishman Reuben Milner has a secret… one that could destroy his world. For now, however, he’s kept his life as a novelist under wraps, focusing on providing for his family after the tragic passing of his father. Renting the dawdi house seems the right move—until the wrong woman moves in. However, she comes with ideas to help improve their B&B, and that, along with her feisty personality, is something Reuben can’t ignore. Even if the elders want him to focus on joining the church and finding a wife.

When going home isn’t an option, Lyla decides to help the Milners spruce up their rental. It does help distract her from her problems online. The more Lyla works on the rental with Reuben, the more she wonders if returning to her former life is worth it. However, is it the simple life that Lyla’s heart longs for—or a particular guarded Amishman with secrets of his own? And when those secrets are discovered, what will it cost them both?

Book two in the delightful and sweet Big Sky Amish Collection.

Lyla Taylor jumped as her phone buzzed in her hand. Pulling her gaze away from the tall Montana pines whizzing past, she settled back into the cracked leather seat of the SUV and steeled herself before she looked at the notifications popping up. Her stomach plummeted.

Three more sponsors had pulled their support—Target, Sephora, and Gorgeous Cosmetics. Bummer. She’d had the perfect idea for her collaboration with Gorgeous Cosmetics. What was the grand total now? Twelve? No, thirteen. Thirteen sponsors cancelled since her fall from grace. From the next big thing back to an absolute nobody. Pushing out a sigh, she let her phone drop in her lap and went back to staring out her window at the heavily wooded area. She definitely wasn’t in LA anymore.

A chuckle sounded from her driver next to her. “Trouble in paradise?” The scruffy, older man, who’d introduced himself as Wyatt when he’d picked her up in his beat-up, battered SUV, wore dark-blue jeans and a red flannel shirt rolled up to his elbows. He smelled of pine shavings, and she wasn’t sure if it was some type of cologne or from the fact that he’d actually been in the woods this morning. She guessed the latter.

Lyla smoothed her black designer shorts, admiring her perfectly manicured nails. She’d had her doubts about the new salon, but this manicure was really holding up. “Something like that.” Seven years of growing her platform, building her audience, and landing big collaborations gone with one dumb live video. This vacation would be her turning point. A reset where she’d come back better than ever. It was her first real break since she’d started, and her publicist, Kayt, and her agent extraordinaire, Ford, had informed her this particular trip was for rest and relaxation only. A vacation.

She didn’t do vacations. There was too much work to do. She was Lyla Taylor, known to her followers as Ruby Rose. She may have lost some sponsors, but she still had a fragrance line, makeup line, and—until she heard otherwise—a pitch coming up for her own show on a major network. She would get her life back.
