Will this be the end of Marcie's marriage to Steve, the guy who has been by her through thick and thin?

Read Desert Heat and get swept away to another world. Come visit the desert where it is always hot, hot, hot! Live with Marcie, Steve and Jim as they explore the shades of difference between love, sex and friendship. You may never view love or the desert through the same eyes again!

No Lady and Her Tramp FREE for limited time!

For no apparent reason other than just because I can, I have made my book No Lady and Her Tramp FREE for a limited time at Smashwords. No coupon necessary. Grab it before I come to my senses and put it back to it's original price of $2.99.

No Lady is an adult romantic comedy (satire) that will make you pee your pants you'll be laughing so hard as you read it.

A quirky hysterically hilarious read that is down and dirty!
The steamy, very descriptive sex in No Lady and Her Tramp puts Harold Robbins’ books to shame. The one thing Mr. Robbins’ books did not have is the humor that illuminates in this work of art.
No Lady is one woman’s accounting of the trials, tribulations, and antics of her life, and all of the other colorful characters (some even use the politically incorrect term of trailer trash to describe them) who live in President Park, a run down trailer park in Grapevine, Kentucky.
You may find the palms of your hands sweat, among other things, from the titillating sex that fill the pages. You will also find yourself laughing aloud, as humor runs consistently throughout the book.
These two authors, Kristie Leigh Maguire and Mark Haeuser, by putting their talents together, have written a very funny book laced with pure, unadulterated steam.

Jane Porter’s dreams of marrying Mike Farley, the handsome cowboy who lives on the neighboring ranch, are shattered when Mike suddenly marries a redheaded stranger he met at the Wild Horse Saloon in Casper, Wyoming. After Mike stomped all over Jane’s heart with his cowboy boots, can Jane ever trust her heart to a man again?

Mike Farley marries beautiful Samantha Jo Smith after a whirlwind courtship with no thought to Jane Porter, his childhood sweetheart and the woman everyone in Fremont County thought he would marry one day. Mike soon learns to regret his hasty marriage to Samantha. Can Mike win back Jane’s heart even though he had shattered it into a million pieces?

Longtime friends and neighbors Jim Porter and Liz Farley turn to each other for support after the unexpected death of their spouses. Will Jim and Liz’s friendship turn into something deeper even though they both feel they have had, and lost, their chance at love?

Is it ever too late for love? Is it ever too late for second chances?

 Set in rural Wyoming, Second Chances is a sweet contemporary western romance that will warm your heart. One reader stated, “I read it through in an evening, and felt as if I had spent that evening with ‘salt of the earth’ folk.” Another reader said, I loved the double, no triple, second chance. It was a very sweet ending.”

About Michael Wallace (from Amazon Author Central)
I've trekked across the Sahara on a camel, ridden an elephant through a tiger preserve in Southeast Asia, eaten fried guinea pig, and been licked on the head by a skunk. In a previous stage of life I programmed nuclear war simulations, smuggled refugees out of a war zone, and milked cobras for their venom. I speak Spanish and French and grew up in a religious community in the desert.

I hope you enjoy my books as much as I've enjoyed my crazy life. I welcome email from readers at m.wallace23(at)yahoo(dot)com.

Sharing the love for No Lady and Her Tramp

4.0 out of 5 stars HOT! HOT! HOT!
Kingsland (United Kingdom)
This review is from: No Lady and Her Tramp (Kindle Edition)
This book is funny, witty and HOT. I took it into work and was reading it on my lunch hour - blimey - I ended up eating my dinner at 30 miles and hour!! It is really funny and at times I was almost laughing out loud! This was a good read and I have passed the word around so a few friends have also purchased!

BigAl from Books and Pals also gave No Lady some love.
4.0 out of 5 stars Trailer Park Peyton Place
BigAl - See all my reviews

This review is from: No Lady and Her Tramp (Kindle Edition)
There are strange goings-on at President Park in Grapevine, KY. This satirical look at small town life is really two intertwined stories. The main story is the gossip, back-biting, and general misbehaving going on in this lowbrow, redneck Peyton Place. The other is the story of Grapevine's soon-to-be bestselling author as she writes the story of the world's greatest lover. The last spices the story up while the entire book tickles your funny bone.

This book is satire. It's supposed to be slightly over the top like a caricature. It isn't the book for those who think anything beyond a kiss is too much sex or that sex is too serious to laugh at. It's not for someone from a small town who feels they're inferior because of it. But for those with the ability to recognize their own foibles and still laugh. For those who can see the humor in the human condition with all its warts exposed. This is the book for you.
