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!



  1. This sounds good too. Harlequin books rock. I love reading them. I’m reading a really good one by Jane Porter at the moment. It’s the third enemy to lovers encompassing story from Harlequin I’ve read in a row.

      Harlequin’s have been my fav for years and years. 🙂 Jane Porter sounds fun! I haven’t read her in awhile.

  2. I always enjoy Marin Thomas’ books.
