Book Excerpt

A WOMAN NEVER FORGETS HER FIRST COWBOY . . .

As a single mother, Naomi Sullivan is used to doing things on her own. She’s finally saved enough from working at the Cortez Ranch to buy a lovely home for her and her little girl. Life is going as planned. But when her high school sweetheart comes riding back to town, this self-sufficient woman feels something she hasn’t felt in years: red-hot, unbridled need for the handsome cowboy who left her behind.

Lucas Cortez doesn’t plan on being in town long. Yet when he sees Naomi again—the gorgeous girl he never stopped loving—he’s tempted to hang up his hat and stay awhile. He’s already charmed his way into her daughter’s heart, but he’ll need more than sweet talk and roses to convince Naomi to give them a second chance-especially when she’s hiding a secret that could change their lives forever…

Book Summary

In the New York Times bestselling tradition of Jennifer Ryan, Maisey Yates, and B. J. Daniels comes the first book in Sara Richardson’s western contemporary romance series about bull-riding brothers.

NEVER FALL IN LOVE WITH A COWBOY

Jessa Mae Love is done with relationships. No matter how tempting he might be, she cannot—will not—fall for a man like Lance Cortez. The outrageously handsome cowboy is practically a living legend in Colorado, as famous for riding bulls as he is for breaking hearts. What would a big-time rodeo star like him see in a small-town veterinarian who wears glasses, rescues animals, and cries when watching rom-coms? Turns out, plenty.

Raisng bulls, riding the circuit, and looking after his ailing father—Lance never stands still for long. Yet Jessa catches his attention, and the more she tries to resist him, the more he wants her. When she agrees to move to the ranch to keep an eye on Lance’s dad, Jessa tells him they have to keep it professional: no flirting, no sweet talk, and definitely no kissing. But with Jessa now living under his roof, that’s easier said than done . . .

Book Talk Saturday: Book Haul Part Two

booktalksaturday_header

Happy Saturday, readers! I’m back as promised to continue my book haul post from Sunday. This time I’ve got some recent ARC copies to talk about and some series I’ve loved and bought in print (already read the ARC or owned the e-book, or both).

I received some of these ARCs a few weeks back, but due to other commitments (prior books accepted, photo shoots and subsequent editing scheduled, etc), I haven’t been able to dive into them yet. My April was busy with senior photo shoots and editing and my May is busy with lots of photo editing going on as I just photographed a wedding last weekend, so I’m fitting in book reading in between all of that. Thankfully, things will slow back down for me toward the end of the month.

For now, here’s a few books I’ve received for review or purchased to read myself.


Print ARCs and Books Received

The Darkest Lie by Pintip Dunn

I received an early copy of this YA book from Kensington for review and am so excited to read it now. My full review will be posted on the blog closer to it’s June 28th release date, but from the pages I’ve read thus far, my initial impression is that the book is fast-paced, well-written, intriguing, and engrossing. I loved Pintip Dunn’s debut book from Entangled Teen, Forget Tomorrow (currently up for a 2016 RWA Rita Award), so I’m over the moon to finish my read of The Darkest Lie.

Nookietown by V.C Chickering

I received a copy of this book from St. Martin’s Press for review. It’s very different from what I normally read, and not something I would’ve sought out on my own, but I’m looking forward to diving in and giving it a shot. From the few pages I peeked at, I thought it was intriguing, funny, and sure to be a lesson in be careful what you wish for. Look for my review of this one on the blog soon.

Primal Instinct by Tara Wyatt

Hot Cowboy Nights by Carolyn Brown

I received these books for review from Grand Central Publishing Forever and will be posting reviews of both books on their May 31st release date. Needless to say, I’m excited to read these and I can’t wait to share my thoughts on them.

New York's Finest Series

Frisk Me, Steal Me, and Cuff Me by Lauren Layne

I’ve talked a few times about these books and I bought them all in digital after reading the ARCs for review, but I also recently purchased them in print, too, because they are too good not to own physical copies of each one of them. One of my favorite series I’ve read in the past year for sure.

Book Summary

“Charming, witty, and fun. There’s no better read. I enjoyed every word!” — Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author on No Better Man

STOP RUNNING . . .AND START FALLING

For Ruby James the Walker Mountain Ranch is her safe haven. Here in Aspen, Colorado, she can finally build a quiet life for herself without fear of her old one rearing its ugly head. Or so Ruby thinks. Any single woman would be happy to indulge a tall, dark, and curious cop-but the closer Ruby gets to him, the closer she gets to losing her newfound peace.

Police officer Sawyer Hawkins is no stranger to secrets. He’s ready to leave town for good until a security threat brings him back to Walker Ranch, and Ruby’s gorgeous green eyes soon have him second-guessing his decision to go. Her kindness and quiet strength awaken feelings he’d thought long buried, even as her reluctance to talk about her past worries him. The cop in Sawyer only wants the truth-but the man in him wants Ruby in his arms forever . . .
