It’s like a page ripped from her diary when Christine Briscoe finds herself dancing with Gavin Fortunado at his sister’s wedding. It’s like a scene from her dreams when the flirtatious attorney asks her to be his—pretend—girlfriend. But there is nothing make-believe about the sparks between the quiet office manager and the sexy Fortune scion. Considering Gavin’s reputation, she might be heading for heartbreak. Or maybe, just maybe, straight down the aisle!


Delightfully sweet and sincere! With the next book in The Fortunes of Texas: The Lost Fortunes series, Michelle Major brings us a fake engagement turned happily ever after story. It’s fast paced with really down-to-earth characters who enjoy each other’s company more than they ever expected. Lots of flirting, laughs and just plain FUN! Really enjoyed it!

Attorney Gavin Fortunado is so tired of his family trying to match him up with the woman of his dreams. Can’t anyone be allowed to stay single and loving it anymore? He’s in town for his sister’s wedding and can’t take the pressure anymore, so he’s making up a pretend girlfriend to get them off his back … only the ruse becomes all too real when he starts spending time with the lovely Christine!

Christine Briscoe has had a secret crush on Gavin pretty much since the day she met him almost a decade ago. She’s a boring, plain Jane and knows he would never look twice at someone like her, but when he whisks her off to dance with him at his sister’s wedding, it’s like a dream come true. Pretending to be his girlfriend will allow her to spend more time with him for sure, but when the feelings become all too real, things are about to get complicated!

Will a lawman and a little girl…

Give her a reason to stay?

Annabelle Foster has big plans to leave Barren, Kansas, until an accident makes her guardian to a little girl. Annabelle has zero experience with children and turns to Finn Donovan for help. But while both Annabelle and Emmie start falling for the strong, guarded sheriff, Finn is haunted by his own tragedy. Can one little girl make them believe in their future…as a family?


Learning to love again! The next book in the Kansas Cowboys series was quick to catch my attention, but was a bit slow-paced throughout. Two damaged hearts are brought together over the plight of one little girl and have to figure out how to pick up the pieces for her to find her safe place. The characters were well-developed and the underlying plot was great, just slow moving. Enjoyed their story!

Annabelle Foster is looking forward to a whole new start in life now that obligations aren’t tethering her to Barren, Kansas anymore. She’s looking forward to starting a whole knew adventure once her house and diner sell. She’s not expecting to all of a sudden be responsible for a toddler, that’s for sure! She knows nothing about kids, and isn’t sure she has a maternal bone in her body so how can she be the one responsible for this precious little girl??

Sheriff Finn Donovan came to Kansas running from the heartache of his past. He’d give anything to have the world be what it used to be for him, but devastation struck and left him adrift. He tries to steer clear of adorable Emmie and her new-found guardian Annabelle, but there’s just something about the two of them that strikes a major chord in his heart.
