More About the Author

Southern born-Northern bred

I was born in Aiken, South Carolina, but alas, my parents moved back to northern New Jersey where I grew up, which if you've met me would explain a lot. I've always had my nose in a book, have traveled the world over, and even tested the time-space continuum, thanks to the awesome power of the written word.

My love for the written word is a gift from my parents, but the need to write was instilled by my 7th Grade English teacher. One of my writing quirks is that I love to include bits and pieces of my ancestors and ancestry in all of my books.

Fate, destiny and love at first sight will always play a large part in my stories because they played a major role in my life. When I saw my husband for the first time, I knew he was the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I've loved him forever, well, more than half my life. Each and every hero I write about has a few of Dave's best qualities, his honesty, his integrity, his compassion for those in need and his killer broad shoulders. I'm such a sucker for a man with broad shoulders.

Happy Reading!
C.H. Admirand

This beautiful love story will steal your heart as C.H. Admirand brings The Secret Life of Cowboys trilogy to a close. My favorite of the three Garahan novels, Jesse is an engaging romance with charming protagonists and an irresistible little cowgirl.

The youngest of the Garahan brothers, Jesse is recovering from a recent heartbreak. He is not looking for love, but Jesse falls hard for Danielle Brockway and her adorable daughter Lacy. Danielle is leery of getting involved with another cowboy but Jesse slowly works past her defenses and into her heart.

Jesse Garahan is a hardworking cowboy who has deep ties to the family ranch he works with his brothers. The three brothers love, work and play hard and do not hesitate to work out their differences with their fists. They are fiercely loyal to one another and they love pushing one another's buttons. Jesse lives by a strict code of cowboy conduct and old fashioned values instilled in him by his grandfather. Like his brothers, Jesse is possessive of the woman he loves.

Danielle Brockway is a single mom starting her life over following her divorce. She settles easily into her new life with her uncle Jimmy while trying to plan where her life is going next. She is a dedicated mom who is very protective of her four year old daughter Lacy. Danielle is easily accepted by the Garahan clan and she forms quick friendships with Ronnie and Emily.

Lacy is a precocious little girl who loves all things cowboy and she is smitten with Jesse from their first meeting. Jesse is a natural with children and their scenes together are incredibly sweet.

With a little bit of matchmaking by Emily and Ronnie, Jesse and Danielle's relationship easily transitions from friends to lovers.

Loved this book as a part of the Garahan series cowboy books. Loved the fact that Jesse was the youngest and the a scrapper to boot. Loved the fact that his dream was racing cars. Each brother had their own dreams and each as different as they were. Yet they were tied unequivocally bound to their family heritage and ranch. Family is everything and they were all about family. loved the fact that Jesse not only got his woman but he got an adorable little cowgirl for a daughter as well.

Now, that,'s a story. The youngest of the Caravan boys to fall in love with a regular guy who loves his family, his land, the new girl in town and her adorable daughter.

The lo 've story is intertwined with the boys trying g to keep their ranch going, and doing what's Sr job came along no matter what.

A fast read--a good read.

C.H. Admirand has a true gem to add to her Secret Life of Cowboys series with this latest installment, JESSE. Endearing, sexy and absolutely amazing, this novel has it all!

Seeing the happiness his brothers have found, Jesse Garahan has found life on the Circle G ranch to be a little empty. He's ready for the perfect woman to share his life with, he just doesn't know where to find her. Luckily for him, one day he stumbles upon Danielle Brockway and her daughter Lacy on the side of the road after their truck breaks down. Jesse likes her immediately and he's ready to test the waters to see if a relationship between them can work.

Yet Danielle has just recently divorced her husband, Lacy's father, and she's not sure she can give her heart away to another cowboy again. Danielle may not be ready to give them a chance at happily ever after, but Jesse is determined to show her this cowboy is worth the risk.

C.H. Admirand doesn't just make heroes that the heroine can fall in love with, but the reader as well. Jesse was...well, he was fabulous. I adored his character and his journey to finding true love. His interactions with Danielle's daughter Lacy will nearly break your heart; they are so adorable. Still, if that wasn't enough, you could judge him by the way he pursued Danielle's love. Despite her hesitations to jump into a relationship again, he never pushed her into something she wasn't ready for. He took their mutual attraction and built a strong foundation of trust and respect for a lasting relationship.

Danielle was great, too. Although it's easy to be overjoyed about all the romantic moments between Danielle and Jesse, I was always admiring her relentlessness to put Lacy first. She never did anything without first considering how it would affect Lacy.

Good wholesome stories that focus on family, friends, love and caring are always fun and uplifting to read.

Author C.H. Admirand has such stories in her The Secret Life of Cowboys series with her latest release, JESSE, being a great example.

Admirand makes her characters realistic people you'd really like to know. She sprinkles in a little mystery, some steamy romance and a delightful sense of humor for a well-balanced story.

Jesse Garahan is a sexy and charming cowboy who has given up on love after being hurt twice by the same woman. Being a true cowboy though, Jesse stops to give a stranded motorist help and finds more than he bargained for.

Danielle Brockway doesn't much care for cowboys anymore thanks to her ex, a bull rider. She's just trying to get to her uncle's with her little girl to start a new life. When Jesse stops to help, life takes an unexpected turn.

The easy flowing conversational-style writing moves the story along while holding your attention. It will have you shaking your head and laughing. It may even pull on your heart strings a bit and have you turning up the AC as things heat up between Jesse and Danielle. You won't be able to resist Lacy either.

JESSE is the third and final installment in The Secret Life of Cowboys series but is a stand alone read. Readers will be treated to characters from the previous installments - TYLER and DYLAN - but won't be at a loss as to what is going on.

For a fun-filled afternoon of pleasant, steamy reading, be sure to include JESSE in your list of books.
