About the Author

Laura Drake grew up in the suburbs outside Detroit, though her stories are set in the west. A tomboy, she's always loved the outdoors and adventure. In 1980 she and her sister packed everything they owned into Pintos and moved to California. There she met and married a motorcycling, bleed-maroon Texas Aggie and her love affair with the West was born. Laura rides motorcycles: Elvis, a 1985 BMW Mystic, and Sting, a 1999 BMW R1100.

In Texas, Laura was introduced to her first rodeo, and fell in love. She's an avid fan of Pro Bull Riding (PBR,) attending any event within driving distance, including two PBR National finals.

Laura now lives in California with her family. She is hard at work on her next novel.

Her characters are such real people with flaws that are easy to relate to and hopes and dreams all people have.

I thought this was going to be a light quick read. I was both right and wrong. I was right it read quickly, because the pacing was so good. I was wrong that it was light, it had a beautifully crafted interesting plot. Laura Drake has offered readers a really strong contemporary romance, and the fact that it includes Professional Bull Riders is a bonus! Her characters are multi dimensional and engaging; it's easy to become emotionally invested in their happily ever after. Nothing Sweeter was a little silly, a lot happy and pretty darn steamy.

Nothing Sweeter is an enjoyable romance filled with humor, drama and romance. The author writes about the west and real life problems with all its pitfalls and hope, and although it is part of a series this story easily stands alone.

Aubrey Madison (Bree Tanner) is seeking a new life, away from the disaster in California and also away from her mom's hovering. She recently was let out of prison and even though they exonerate her, she wears the scars both emotionally and physically. Looking for a place to find herself again, she reads a want ad while eating at yet another diner in Steamboat, Colorado and for some reason, it feels right.

Max Jameson owns the High Heather Ranch, a working ranch that seems to be falling on hard times. His father recently died and his brother Wyatt has come back to help. Max and Wyatt have not seen much of each other since Wyatt left years ago but they welcome the chance to get reacquainted. Max hires Bree and although is curious about her background, he can find no fault with her work. As she immerses herself in the ranch she realizes there is a niche that could be filled and proposes a business that could help them all, Total Bull is born and Fire Ant is their unimpressive mascot, yet trouble comes when secrets are revealed and trust is lost.

I really enjoyed this story, it is the first book by Ms. Drake that I have read, but it will not be my last. I love how she weaves the relationships between the characters so thoughtfully. Wyatt and Max, although not having seen each other in years, seem to have a wonderful relationship. I did have problems with Max’ inability to acknowledge or understand Wyatt, but I also know that he wanted things to be easy, and accepting Wyatt and his partner was not trouble-free.

Nothing Sweeter is another well-written and entertaining romance by the wonderfully fabulous Laura Drake. This second installment in her charming Sweet on a Cowboy series is a compelling novel about new beginnings, self-acceptance and of course, love. It is not quite as emotional as The Sweet Spot, but it just as heartwarming and the cast of characters is just as endearing.

Aubrey “Bree” Madison is searching for a new life when her journey takes her to High Heather Ranch. The serene surroundings and low stress job provide Bree the perfect place to de-stress and just enjoy life. Her attraction to sexy cowboy and ranch owner Max Jameson catches her by surprise but she is able to keep her distance from her gruff, grumpy boss. That is until she comes up with the perfect plan to help Max and his brother Wyatt hold on to their beloved family inheritance.

Bree easily settles into her new routine as a stable hand but putting her past behind her proves to be much trickier. Plagued by nightmares, she throws herself wholeheartedly into her new job and begins to find a measure of peace. At first uneasy around the other ranch hands, she is quickly accepted by her peers. But it is Bree’s close friendship with Wyatt and Max’s cook and surrogate mother Tia Nita that she finds most soothing. She shares an easygoing rapport with Wyatt but Bree butts heads with Max right from their very first meeting. Part of their discord arises from their simmering sexual tension while Max’s stubborn cowboy pride is responsible for the rest.

Max is still reeling from his father’s unexpected death and the abrupt end to his previous romance when he first makes Bree’s acquaintance. His life is in turmoil as he fights to keep the ranch solvent while trying to smooth over his relationship with Wyatt.

After reading just the first page of Nothing Sweeter, it became a book I was more than happy to sink into. Not a cliche to be found. This is my favorite type of romance; complicated, slow-moving, without a real nasty protagonist (just a guy desperate for some respect). It has a woman running from a past she’d love to forget, a man struggling to keep his ranch and feed his hands, a “bull” market and the color pink, found in the most unlikely place.

The characters are real people; the situation is all-too-believable in this day and age. The way these two rise to the challenges set before them kept me spellbound. I’m so glad this is a series, as now I get to go back and read the first one (The Sweet Spot).

Laura is just bursting in on the romance scene. Do yourself a favor and pick up her books, for this is one writer who will undoubtedly get better and better.

Laura Drake has created an enjoyable page-turning cowboy story with a twist.

The ex-con Aubrey Madison needs a drastic change and stumbles upon an advertisement for a horse groomer. Max Jameson is already having money trouble and doesn’t need a city girl working on his ranch, especially an attractive red-head. Aubrey struggles to keep her own secrets. As Bree she finds inner strength. She falls for the strong-willed cowboy who often speaks without thinking.

Madison watches professional bull riding and purchases her own bull. Max and his brother go in with Madison to raise bulls for the PBR.

Sweet on a Cowboy is worth reading again and again.
