Two people from different worlds who know one another only from what they have shared with one another in Facebook messages. They've never heard the other's voice, or seen a photo.
Analise Becke writes romance with western heroes, men she has dreamed up by combining the looks of her favorite western actor with the qualities she discovers in her online chats with the Texas rancher, Riley Morgan. She's cooked up more than a few fantasies about Riley over the last year, but knows them for what they are -- fantasies of a lonely woman whose marriage is falling apart.
Riley looks forward to the online chats more than he is willing to admit but has never considered asking what she looks like. She's just an online friend. Yeah, they have a connection, but certainly not enough to even consider that a face-to-face meeting will spark anything other than a solidification of their friendship.
Riley Morgan and Analise Becke are in for a big surprise - actually a series of surprises. Their lives are about to be turned upside down as passion and danger come to Cotton Creek, Texas.
And they say nothing ever happens in Cotton Creek.
Southern Comfort is the first book in Ciana's HONKY TONK ANGELS series. Come and meet the folks who call Cotton Creek home and bring their tales to Honky Tonk Angels in down-home fun with, good-old fashioned romances (with perhaps a bit of a twist)!
If you love small-town and rural, feel-good love stories like those of Robyn Carr and her Virgin River series, Ann-Marie Meyer and The Red Stilletto Book Club, Tricia O'Malley, the Siren Island series, Pamela Kelley, Nantucket Beach Plum Cove series, or any of the wonderful books by Carolyn Brown, then this is a book and a series for you!
Chase Hawks had a good handle on life. Between his small spread in Arizona, his success on the rodeo circuit and a bevy of beautiful women always available to satisfy his urges, he figured he had control over his life. Then fate intervened. He ran over a woman. Literally. Hit her with his truck. Ana Stillwater had no control over her life. She’d skipped out on an abusive husband with three hundred dollars, a car that was on its last leg and a hawk named Fergi. She figured life couldn’t get any worse. Then it did. Her car breaks down in Arizona and if that isn’t enough, she gets hit by a truck. Which brings up the question: Just what happens when a rational, down-to-earth rancher hooks up with a quirky new age witch who can give him a hard one with just a look and likes to dance naked under the moon?
"This is a book that will stay with you long after the final word. Ciana Stone writes about a victim in a way that makes you wonder if she understands this level of fear. And the monster who haunts the lives of the characters is shockingly real. A brilliant tale you won't want to put down, but definitely not for the faint of heard." - Candid Book Reviews
She was seven when the monster came and when he left that night, he took with him Isabelle's happiness, sense of security and belief in a God who would protect little children. He left her with a promise, one that she could never forget and one that filled her with terror.
"We're not done, you and I. You're my special girl, Isabelle. I'll be back for you."
For twenty-five years, she's feared that promise and his whispers in her mind. She's run from it, tried to deny it, looked for ways to forget or overcome it, and now she's ready to admit that there's only one way to reclaim her life.
Destroy the monster. Or die trying.
*** Reader Advisory. This book contains scenes of physical torture and murder.

She had to hang onto her ranch and this was the only way. She wasn’t expecting to like Clay Russell. She sure wasn’t expecting to want him.

Come take a ride with Jed Nash in Book One of The Whisperer Series .. Staking a Claim
Jed Nash had a few simple rules in life. (1.) Family always comes first, (2.) Know when to keep it in your pants, (3.) Don’t mix business and pleasure, and (4.) Don’t believe in love. All it brings is misery and heartache.
He had no trouble following his own rules. At least not until the new trainer on his ranch shows up. He was expecting a man. What he got was a woman who had him battling attraction that was hot and wild. Sure as sunshine, if she stayed he wouldn’t be able to keep his hands off her.
Mik isn’t looking for anything but a place to stay and a paycheck. She sure isn’t expecting to wind up on a ranch run by true Whisperers. Or a man who God had to have created solely as temptation.
They’re both set on ignoring the attraction. It can only lead to trouble.
If only that were the only trouble they had to face. Evil is gathering around them, evil that cursed the Nash family two hundred years ago and fully intends to see every Nash man wiped from the face of the earth. And heaven help anyone who tries to stand in its way.
Some say love conquers all. Does that hold true for Whisperers who have been cursed to fail at love? They’re about to find out.
There's a place - Cotton Creek. A sleepy little small town in Texas. People were once fond of saying "nothing ever happens in Cotton Creek." That might have been true once, but not anymore.
These days, there are new people moving in to call Cotton Creek home, and they're not just settling in, they're finding danger and excitement, second chances and oh boy are they falling in love.
So, if you're in the mood for love stories that make you laugh and cry and sigh a time or two, this is a series for you. Come fall in love today and find your heartbreaker -- or hero, right here in Cotton Creek.

Meet Zeb Childress and Kade Lawson, Texas Rangers who live by a code of justice. They enjoy their share of passion with the women who pass through their lives, but neither expect to find lasting love.
Funny how life often dishes you up a plate of something you didn't expect. Only these men are being served something way out of the ordinary. Women who inspire lust and love with near lethal force - and the dangers that follow them.
Come join Zeb and Kade as they discover that love is kin to justice - sometimes you have to fight for it. And hope you don't have to die for it.
Book One: Zeb
*This book originally appeared in the box set Men of Calder County
Zebediah Childress would rather eat a bullet than go back to Calder County. He’d escaped it when he was eighteen and there was nothing there he wanted any part of.
Then he knocked on the door of the Hale house and Willa Hale opened it. He was immediately attracted. He'd have to be of a whole other sexual orientation not to find her sexy as homemade sin. So maybe there'd be some perks to being in Calder County for a while.
It wasn't like he was going to fall in love, after all. Zeb wasn't the marrying kind. He was first and foremost a Texas Ranger, a lawman. Everything else came second. Besides, he wasn't looking for love. Or a woman who wasn't quite normal. He didn't object to getting her between the sheets, but that was as far as it'd ever go.
At least that's what he thought. Life sometimes presents you with what you didn’t know you wanted most of all.
The test would be staying alive to claim it.
Book Two: Kade
When Cia Whitehorse walks into Kade Lawson’s office and announces she’s been assigned to help with a serial killer investigation, he’s damn sure he’s never met a federal agent as sexy.
Cia takes one look at Kade and makes up her mind that she’s going to have him in her bed. She might not be interested in love, but sex is definitely right up her alley and Kade looks like the kind of man who can give her just what she wants.
Kade is more than willing to deliver what Cia needs. She gets to him. Tough and sexy, with an unspoken promise in her look that says she’ll rock his world. But that look is covering something. And Kade’s a sucker for a mystery.
The problem is, solving the mystery of Cia Whitehorse comes with a price and this price just might be lethal.
