Long, Hot Texas Summer is a very sweet and sassy second chance at love romance by Carolyn Brown. Set in beautiful Palo Duro Canyon, TX, it is a completely charming and captivating love story between a long divorced couple who discover they still have feelings for one another seventeen years after their marriage ended.

Loretta and Jackson Bailey are childhood sweethearts who married young and settled on his family’s ranch to raise their daughter Nona. However, their idyllic marriage ended a few years later after Nona caught Jackson in a compromising situation. Loretta’s plan to never return to Texas comes to an abrupt end when Nona announces she is dropping out of college and staying on the ranch with the cowboy who has stolen her heart. Determined to change her daughter’s mind, Loretta packs her bags and shows up unannounced at the ranch where she is planning to stay until she convinces Nona to change her mind. Loretta’s got her work cut out for her convincing Nona to go back to school, but pretty soon, the biggest problem she’s facing is her unexpected (and unwanted) attraction to Jackson.

Loretta is a feisty woman and given how stubborn she is, it is hard to believe that she walked away from Jackson without a fight. The reasons for her decision are multi-faceted and it takes a lot of introspection before she can figure out the underlying reasons for her long ago choices.

Jackson fully accepts his share of the blame in their break up and until Loretta’s return, he has not delved too deeply into what precipitated his foolish actions so long ago. Like Loretta, it takes a lot of reflection to understand why he so easily let her go.

BOOK SYNOPSIS

A sassy redhead with an axe to grind…

After catching her husband kissing another woman in the barn, Loretta Sullivan Bailey left Lonesome Canyon Ranch and swore she’d never come back. But when her daughter threatens to drop out of college to become a rancher’s wife, Loretta refuses to let her baby make the same mistake she did. She returns to the ranch, determined to get her daughter back in school by the summer’s end…and resolute on ignoring her feelings for her ex-husband.

A bullheaded but oh so sexy cowboy…

A cowboy from his hat to his boots, ruggedly handsome rancher Jackson Bailey is none too pleased that his feisty—and gorgeous—ex-wife has suddenly shown up seventeen years after their divorce. But despite all their fighting and fussing, the two stubborn former lovers soon discover that old flames burn the hottest. Can they finally put aside their differences and find happiness together…forever?

My Thoughts

Okay have totally found my favorite location and favorite couple of all the books read by this author .

There is a lot of water under the bridge between Loretta and Jackson Bailey, divorced after only four years of marriage 17 years ago the two have not seen in each other or kept in touch other than discussing their daughter Nona.

I sit in wait for Carolyn Brown to release another one of her sexy cowboy romances and it's here, a wonderful gift Long, Hot Texas Summer is!

I really could relate to this book. You'll meet Loretta Sullivan Bailey, she left the Lonesome Canyon Ranch 17 years ago when she caught her husband JACKSON kissing another women in the hay barn. Loretta swore she'd never come back.

Well s***, her daughter Nona threatens to drop out of college to work her Daddy's ranch and has fallen in love Travis Calhoun a hired hand at The Lonesome Canyon Ranch-with designs to marry him!

Loretta is determined to bring Nona back home to Oklahoma to finish her last year of college and NOT to make the same mistake she did.

Loretta in hast chose to stay at the ranch to be closer to her daughter while trying to avoid Jackson. Boy she forgot the exciting feeling she'd got when bantering with Jackson, he still made her juices flow and she wanted him....it would only lead to pain and misery. But man oh man she wanted Red hot make up sex.

Lonesome Canyon Ranch has been just that for Jackson - LONESOME. Jackson has never stopped loving Loretta. It all started when he was 10 years old. Jackson wrote a note to Loretta asking "Do You Like Me" check the YES or NO box. Jackson is going to get Loretta back and he'll do whatever it takes. However Dina the hussy who had been kissing Jackson 17 years ago has different plans for him.

Loretta's gotta fight for her man!

Anyone can relate to these characters- you all remember old loves, first loves, broken hearts, feel guilt, regret, forgiveness and hot dang you'll laugh from the sass! Oh did I mention Loretta brings her pistol to church?
