IN ONE PICTURE: Natasha Moore’s “The Scoundrel” (Contest)

The Scoundrel by Natasha Moore  A lonely widow finds her strength when she indulges her attraction to a weathered cowboy on his last night in town Snippet from “The Scoundrel”… It’s another hot summer day but autumn’s just around the corner. I can hear him singing outside, strumming his guitar, crooning a tragic western love song. It fits my mood perfectly, not that he’s singing to me. He might as well be. Tonight will be the last time I’ll see Will…

Where Magic Begins: Payton Harlie (Contest)
