Wedding planner Kinley Quinten's luck runs out when her job brings her back to Texas—and face-to-face with her child's father, rancher Nate Caruthers. The passion that got them in trouble during a one-night stand three years ago is still there, too strong to deny.

Nate can't help it: Kinley gets under his skin. But what happened in Vegas really needs to stay there. Too bad that cliché only gets him so far as he falls for the woman whose baby secret will change everything!

Loved it! The plot moved fast and was easy to follow and the characters were a lot of fun to read. Their family and friends added nicely to the mix, and it was nice to see a few familiar faces in the group from previous books!

Wedding planner Kinley Quinten knows she’s in trouble when her job takes her back home to Texas for a few months. She’s kept her distance ever since she had a wild weekend in Vegas with Nate, one of the sons of her dad’s boss. Now being back in town, it doesn’t take long for them to cross paths, and their chemistry is still off the charts!

Nate Caruthers feels bad when he sees Kinley again because he totally blew her off 3 years ago when she tried to contact him after their weekend together. He was going through some issues at the time and just didn’t have time to bring more drama into his life. He hopes she’ll forgive him and agree to go out with him now that she’s in town … but when he finds out the secret she’s been hiding, he might not feel the same way!

Series: Cowboys of Stampede, Texas

Bronc rider Gunner Hardell never plans past the next stop on the rodeo. When he's home in Stampede, Texas, he's part-time manager of the run-down Moonlight Motel, to get his crotchety grandpa off his back. Then he meets interior designer Lydia Canter—hired to renovate the motel—and suddenly the gig gets a whole lot more appealing…

Lydia is looking for love, but there's nothing wrong with some Mr. Right Now while she waits for Mr. Right. But one steamy night with Gunner has unexpected consequences. And she would rather raise their baby alone than give the good-time cowboy a chance to break her heart. When Gunner learns he's going to be a daddy, he's determined to prove to Lydia he really is her Mr. Right!

Really enjoyed this cute story! The characters have a fun chemistry and the story line was easy to follow. Not only did we have the main characters to follow as they stumbled their way into a relationship, but there was also the back story of their aunt/grandpa who knew each other and were constantly bickering in the background as well.

Rodeo cowboy Gunner Hardell is all about the good time! He never plans past the next rodeo on his schedule and the only job he even pretends to do is “managing” the run-down Moonlight Motel that his grandpa owns and nagged him into handling. He doesn’t plan to settle down or ever stop having fun!

Interior designer Lydia Carter is in Stampede, TX visiting her great aunt, and she gets roped into planning a redesign on the sad excuse for a motel in town. She can’t believe how laid back Gunner is about life. He’s fun, but he’s not what she’s looking for in a man. He’ll do mighty nicely for a temporary fling though! When that fling all of a sudden has them on their way to being parents, the fun and games are over. Gunner wants to step up and do right by her and the baby, but there’s no way Lydia is going to settle for a no-good husband or daddy … even if she has fallen head over heals for him!

I can’t write to music with words, but I do make playlists (of music with lyrics) for all my books. I listen to the playlists when I’m not writing. It keeps me in the story.

The Fortunes of Texas: The Secret Fortunes


Olivia Fortune Robinson has done some crazy things in her life, but this has to be one of the craziest. She has just propositioned sexy Alejandro Mendoza to be her pretend boyfriend for a week. What’s even crazier? He said yes!

They’re doing it all for Sophie—or so they think. Liv’s cynical view of marriage accidentally convinced her little sister to call off her own wedding, and Liv has to fix things and quick. What better way than to “fall in love” herself? Tall, dark and alpha, Alejandro doesn’t seem to mind having Liv on his arm—or in his bed. But when the two commitment-phobes suddenly become faux fiancés, Liv’s traitorous heart starts to fall for real… Is Alejandro’s far behind?

Celebration, TX

And the prince wore spurs

A bourbon-tinged evening turns into a night of spur-jangling passion. And wrapped in the arms of hunky cowboy Zane Phillips, Lucy Campbell feels like her dreams have come true all at once! But she knows Zane needs a chance to let their move from friends to lovers sink in. That is, until reality knocks…and Lucy discovers she’s pregnant.

This wasn’t how Zane imagined daddyhood would happen. And with pretty Lucy…his best friend’s little sister! He wants to do right by her and the baby, but Lucy wants the fairy tale, not a marriage of obligation. And while this simple cowboy isn’t sure he can measure up as her Prince Charming, the real magic is that he’s had her heart all along…


Previously in the series:

Celebration, TX

And the bride wore…running shoes? 

Publicly shamed by her former fiancé, Lady Chelsea Ashford Alden has fallen from grace and her intimate life has become fodder for the British tabloids. On the run from the paparazzi, there’s only one place for the errant aristocrat to wait out the scandal: her best friend’s cottage in Celebration, Texas… 

Instead of foiling a burglar, rancher Ethan Campbell startles a gorgeous blonde in the bathtub! Chelsea covers up…her true identity. But not her sizzling attraction to the tall, dark and hunky cowboy. Ethan has loved and lost, and until Chelsea, he never thought he’d love again. But he doesn’t know her secret, and if she reveals the truth, he might be the one to run this time around.
