A Small Town Cowboy Romance
A forced assignment on a Texas cattle ranch unlocks family secrets and a deep desire to keep those secrets buried.
A Chicago journalist meets the challenge of her life when her story leads her to the secrets, the temptations and the dangers of a lucrative Texas ranch. Paige's pen is as sharp as her mouth and even sharper than the corners on her hipster glasses, but when her fiery temper and her hunger for the truth lands her face to face with unemployment, she will do anything to keep her job... even spend three months on a Texas ranch.
Everett, the no-nonsense, natural-born leader; the Rockstar rancher and expert horseback rider, is less than thrilled to find out he will be hosting a city-slicker for the whole summer and determined to make her life as hard as possible. Paige is certain to be miserable for the entire time and Everett can bet on her quitting in the first week, but both of them are in for a surprise when they find themselves drawn to each other like the opposite ends of two very volatile magnets.

To Cherish and Keep a Cowboy is the third book in my Cowboy Nuptials Series of contemporary cowboy romances
Annalisa Jamison has spent her life avoiding attention, content to hide behind her books and stay away from the drama that seeps through her small Texas town. A local girl with local ambitions, she works as a part-time librarian while harboring self-esteem issues and a deep-seated mistrust of men, due in large part to the childhood trauma she experienced when her less than loving father abandoned her family. Despite little interest in love, Annalisa does have one secret, one she holds close to her chest. Luke McMurtry, the town rascal and player, stole her heart long ago…. But he doesn’t know it, and she’ll never tell him. He’s a hard-partying cowboy with a reputation for trouble and she knows enough to stay far away. Yet that all changes when Luke, the eldest of the McMurtry brothers of the Triple M Ranch, spies her at his brother’s wedding. After watching his younger brothers succumb to the allure of love and find themselves in marriage, Luke needs a reprieve—and a respite from “love.” As the only woman in town who hasn’t fallen to his charms, the lovely Annalisa seems the perfect target…. Except she is having none of it. The normally demure woman tells him off, and somehow inspires an interest, and a strange craving Luke didn’t know he could feel. Suddenly he doesn’t want Annalisa to just be a one-night-stand, he wants more, much more … but can he get past his own ego to find her heart? Can they overcome the pasts that have haunted them both for way too long and learn to trust each other, or are they simply embarking on a collision course twenty years in the making that will result in a disaster?
To Have and Hold a Cowboy is a contemporary cowboy romance novella of 25,000 words.
The Triple M Guest Ranch in Texas is supposed to be Stephanie Reynolds’s refuge, a place to escape the rigors of New York and find herself among the sage and cattle during a three-week vacation. Unfortunately, when she wakes up with the sun blinding her and a vague memory of a bar, too much whiskey, and a cowboy who may, or may not, have been a huge mistake, she wonders if her vacation is going to be as peaceful as she’d hoped. Hungover and confused, she stumbles into the day, and then into Brad McMurtry, a too-handsome cowboy who seems to take a genuine interest in her. As the days turn into weeks, Brad seems to go out of his way to get to know her, igniting an interest—and a fire—inside Stephanie that she hasn’t felt for a very long time. Just when she feels that she should explore this feeling, she runs into Luke McMurtry, Brad’s older brother, and the very cowboy whom Stephanie fears she has reason to regret. Could she have ruined everything with Brad before it really had a chance to begin?
TO LOVE AND HONOR A COWBOY is a 25,000-word novella. It's the second book in the Cowboy Nuptials Series.
As the middle child wedged between two powerhouse brothers—an older one whose cynical outlook is hardly softened by his dominant personality and a younger one whose charm and looks get him almost whatever he wants—Reed McMurtry is used to being overlooked. He is the quiet one, the peacemaker, and, most of the time, the afterthought. All that aside, he is fairly happy. The Triple M Ranch in beautiful and spacious Texas fills his soul. Life is good … and then one morning, life is great. Somehow, some way, Kadence Wright, the most beautiful woman in the world and the one woman he has loved since they were children, was lying next to him in bed … as his wife. Things in life had always come easy for Kadence Wright. She’d been spoiled and indulged by her parents, and she’d learned to use her physical beauty at a young age to get whatever she wanted. Yet when tragedy finds its way into her life not once but twice, she’s drawn back to the last place she felt safe … Texas. It has stayed in her blood, no matter where she’s gone, and now she is holding out hope that it can heal her broken heart. That hope lasts less than twenty-four hours before she wakes up in bed with a handsome cowboy who tells her they are married. Heartache and drink are never a good combination, but now Kadence is left with questions. Who is this man? How does he know so much about her? And why does his family really, REALLY not like her?
Colton Tisdale worked hard, not having time for much of anything aside from tending to what must be done on the family ranch. It was a huge operation; and he was a determined, hard-working man. Then one day he receives a surprise visit from a new woman in town, Olivia Jaspers, and it takes a single second to realize that she’s about to turn his world upside down. But she’s holding something back.
When the adventure of what Olivia is pursuing turns into tender moments and excuses to be together, Colton realizes that she’s really a thief who walked right up to him and stole his heart. Will he let her keep it or will he try to take it back?
