She was an employee’s daughter. He was the heir.

Now the tables have turned…

Gracie Diaz is no longer a young girl watching the Wingate family from afar. She’s a woman of means after a lucky lottery win. And she’s pregnant with Sebastian Wingate’s child, thanks to a red-hot night after a Texas Cattleman’s Club ball. But his family has nearly lost everything. Is he seducing her just to use her newfound wealth?


A delectable conclusion to the Texas Cattleman’s Club: Rags to Riches series! This has been a great series with lots of drama, sexual tension and happily ever afters. Since we learned who the evil mastermind was who was the cause of all of the turmoil the Wingates had been going through in the previous book, this book concentrated mostly on the strife playing out between the main couple.

Sebastian will be quite familiar to anyone who read the last book in the series that centered around his twin brother Sutton. He’s kind, the life of any party and a solid businessman.

I really wanted to love Gracie. She hit it big when she won the lottery that now is making all of her dreams a reality, but she’s so distrustful of Sebastian that she’s not easy to like.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a fast paced plot filled with passion, deception and family saga!

This holiday… He’ll come face-to-face with his past.

Bah, humbug!

It’s the holiday season in Bronco, but for tour operator Evan Cruise, Ôtis only the season for making money. Haunted by his past, he refuses to celebrate the festivities around him—until he meets Daphne Taylor. As the owner of the local animal sanctuary challenges Evan’s resistance to yuletide spirit, their attraction grows into something deeper. But when Daphne uncovers Evan’s shocking family secret, it threatens to tear them apart. Will a little Christmas magic change everything?


A “spiritual” holiday tale! With the final book in the Montana Mavericks: What Happened to Beatrix series, Brenda Harlen brings a modern day Scrooge to life in A COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS CAROL! Part of the story line was a bit unorthodox for a romance, but the Beatrix side of things was a really satisfying ending! Lots of adorable animals, a sweet romance and heartwarming family connections.

Daphne is attention grabbing with all of the adorable animals at her animal shelter taking center stage from the start of the book.

Evan was a bit more complex. He comes across as cold and unfeeling at first, but it doesn’t take him long in Daphne’s company to start to open up and enjoy life more fully.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys a bit of mystery with their romance.

Finding true love…

In the unlikeliest places!

Sienna Fairchild never imagined she’d be a runaway bride. Or that she’d stow away on a worn-down boat belonging to handsome tour operator Monty Bettencourt. Monty’s used to navigating rough seas, but Sienna might overturn his whole life, and avoiding drama is tough in such close quarters! If Sienna’s sure she doesn’t know what she wants, then why does running away feel so much like coming home?


Butterfly Harbor always feels like home! Anna J. Stewart brought utter joy to this reader with one of my favorites of her heroes yet in BRIDE ON THE RUN. This series is always overflowing with emotions, joy and happily ever afters. You’ll have a more complete feel for the town if you read the series from the start, so I highly recommend that you do.

Monty is just the sweetest. He enjoys the simple things in life and always has a positive outlook. Watching him find his forever was so heartwarming.

Sienna might have been subjected to an imaginary shake … or ten throughout the story. She let herself be walked on when the situation was risky, but when it came time to see a truly good guy in front of her for a change, she was dragging her feet and driving me crazy. She eventually redeemed herself.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a small town romance that centers around a group of friends and family that always partake in each others lives and share their joy when they find their forever.
