Hopeless Romantic

Reading is my favorite past time. I enjoy opening a book and knowing that there will always be a new experience. My genre of choice is romance.  Whether contemporary or historical, series or standalone. I love them all. 

There Goes My Heart (Maine Sullivans / The Sullivans Book 20) by Bella Andre

There Goes My Heart (Maine Sullivans / The Sullivans Book 20) - Bella Andre



Andre certainly knows her way around a heart. She creates characters that chronicle love at it's most inspiring and heartbreaking. There's a hint of dreamer and a dash of realism that speaks to us in our most fragile moments. There Goes My Heart is a frenemies romance. Zara and Rory are learning how to trust their feelings, despite the bruises they've acquired along the way. It's in the heartache, that hope begins and love finds the compass to guide these two lost souls home. I've said it many times before, but there is no probably in this case, Rory and Zara are my favorite Sullivan couple.

Lost (A Mountain Man Rescue Romance) by Lane Parker, J.S. Scott

Lost (A Mountain Man Rescue Romance) - J.S. Scott



Parker has quickly become a favorite of mine. Each time I think I have characters all figured out, there is always a twist to keep me on my toes and jump start my heart. There's a depth that goes beyond the sexual and targets the emotional. James and Keeley prove that opposites have the deepest connection. Lost is a battle of hearts that I'd gladly escape into again and again.

Look, she started it.


She issued me a challenge I couldn’t back down from. Make her purr like no man has done before.


Fine, she’s my business partner’s daughter. All right, I’m also working in the same damn practice with her. Yes, she happens to be my ex-fling. But that was seven years ago, and it was barely a week-long thing.


Except, Sloane is still the one I can’t stop thinking of -- brilliant, sexy, captivating Sloane. Maybe a week of taking her to new heights will get her out of my head.


So what if we spend a few nights on the town too? So what if I romance her across Manhattan? It’s all in the name of scientific pursuit of more magnificent Os.

First thing you should know about me—I’m on my honeymoon on Villroy Island without my groom, which was a no brainer given how my ex-fiancé decided to “accidentally” fall in love with my best friend. I don’t want to talk about it. 

Second thing: I’m a romance author on a generously extended deadline, and I’ve sworn to use this time away productively. So far my editor has hated all of my ideas featuring the crushing of men. Romance is dead within my blackened heart. 

I’m about to admit defeat when a prince with an image problem falls into my lap. And for some crazy reason, it’s decided that me posing as his fiancée would be a good idea. The last thing I want is to actually be committed to someone, but a fake engagement may make this next book write itself. 

I enjoy being the world’s most eligible royal bachelor (the internet voted and I won), but that’s not all I am. I want to contribute to the kingdom, be part of the legacy. I should be the CEO of our new business venture, but my oldest brother, Gabriel, the king, blocks me at every turn, convinced I’m too flighty. 

So when Gabriel’s wife, Anna, the unconventional queen offers me a chance to prove myself with the bankers, and the only catch is bringing along a fake fiancée, I reluctantly agree. The ends justify the means, and Alice needs the fake engagement to inspire her story. 

I never expected to fall. Yet here I am, hell bent on convincing a woman afraid to get involved that she belongs with me.

He’s the sexy alpha male in the corner office who goes through assistants faster than free donuts in the breakroom.

I’m the assistant who was chosen to cover for his last fire.

The owner of the company is clear—hook the biggest client in our firm’s history and there’s a partnership for him and a promotion for me. Stipulation—we do it together.

It doesn’t take a tarot card-reading psychic to figure out where our story is headed… late nights, trips out of town, and more than a few awkward moments filled with sexual tension.

No worries though. I pride myself on my willpower. I can totally ignore his sexy grin, his rock-hard body and his dreamy brown eyes. I will not become the woman other women hate.

But it turns out that Enzo Mancini has a lot of layers and if I don’t stop peeling, I’m going to lose everything, including my dignity.

A secret prince romance.

Savannah Barre
I’m starting over—hitting the reset button on my life. With the small inheritance, my grandmother left me, I’m leaving Coppertop Maine behind and reinventing myself in Boston. 

Don’t worry, I’m not doing it alone. I’ve secured the services of Jana Monroe, a life coach so exclusive no one will say what she actually does. 

I’m reasonably certain the first step in my transformation is shedding my virginity. I’ve heard there’s nothing Jana can’t arrange. 

With her help, I’m practically guaranteed an entire life makeover.

The only stipulation? I have to follow her rules. No distractions and absolute confidentiality when it comes to what she does for me.

I would be her favorite client if it weren’t for Brice Hastings. Just because we were trapped in an elevator right after I was mugged and I happened to be dressed like a homeless person, does not mean I need his help.

He’s not part of the plan.
In fact, he’s the distraction Jana says I need to cut out of my life. He’s gorgeous, arrogant, and irritatingly sure I need saving. 

If I’m not careful he’ll also be the reason I fail in Boston.

Prince Bricelion Octavias Hastina of Calvadria
I’ve come to the US to save my brother from a forced arranged marriage that my family sees as the only way to secure the financial future of my people. In Boston, I’m working on some projects that will prove to my father that we are no longer dependent on archaic alliances. For my plan to work, my identity must be concealed until the deals are made and the contracts are signed.

Everything is going as planned until I’m trapped in an elevator with a woman who has no money, no place to stay, and no idea how dangerous a city can be for a woman as innocent as she is.

I don’t want to care what happens to her—but I do.
She tells me to leave her alone—but I can’t. 

I didn’t come to the US looking for a woman.
I’m not going home without her.
Stubborn as she is, she will be mine.

Dear Mr. DarcyDear Mr. Darcy by Sally Johnson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Johnson takes the best parts of feel good romance and creates her own masterpiece. Dear Mr. Darcy is a slow burn, delightfully amusing look at love. Will and Alivia are full of great one liners, but each bark is a smokescreen for a lonely heart. Darcy will make a heart forget itself even as it puts a smile on your face.

Royal St. James got her name when she was born. Not because her mother loved her royally, but because Royal was a giant pain in the ass. She’s spent her entire life fighting to live, and the last thing she needs is to deal with some pretty-boy police officer who wouldn’t know a hardship if it came up and bit him in the…you know.


Justice Rector wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He was raised to work hard and always fight for what he believed in. His father was a cop, and ever since he could remember, he wanted to be one, too.


It was a complete coincidence that he ends up going undercover and meeting Royal St. James. It was just one day, a single moment in time. All routine.

Just do the buy, make the bust, and get out.

But Royal St. James, aptly named, screws everything up. Royally.


All of a sudden, he has a decision to make: blow his cover and save the girl, or save himself.

Of course, he does the most stupid thing possible.

By saving the girl who most assuredly did not want to be saved.

TILL THERE WAS YOU, a contemporary romance title that is part of the bestselling Green Mountain/Butler, Vermont series by Marie Force will be released on June 18th!



Till There Was You by Marie Force



Release Date: June 18, 2019


Book Blurb:



Being an adult has its advantages…


Lucas Abbott and his identical twin grew up sharing everything—including a reputation for funny, idiotic behavior. But now that Lucas is ready to shed that lovable-idiot image, grow up and have a real, adult relationship, the joke’s on him. He and his twin have fallen for the same woman.


Crushed and hoping a few days on the slopes will work out his frustrations, he heads for Stowe, Vermont. All thought of fun and relaxation flies away as a car spins out in a snowstorm, and his firefighter/paramedic training kicks into high gear.


Danielle Rowson is hoping to pick up the pieces and build a new life for herself and her daughter in Vermont. Winding up in a ditch in the middle of a blizzard isn’t part of the plan—and neither is the kind, sexy rescuer whose strong hands pull them to safety.


Lucas has been a little kid, a big kid and now an adult—and he discovers that adulting has more than one advantage. Especially when it comes to sharing with Dani and Savannah the one thing that’s his and his alone: his love.

View all my reviews









It had taken exactly twenty-seven years for Lucas Abbott to wish he hadn’t been born a twin. Most of the time, he embraced his status as one half of the younger set of Abbott twins, who spread good humor and cheerful dispositions everywhere they went in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.

But right now? He was furious with the man who was his doppelgänger in every possible way. Not only were they so identical that their own siblings often confused them, but he and Landon shared almost all the same interests. They had the same friends, the same schedule, the same everything, including, Lucas had discovered to his dismay, the same taste in women.

Earlier today, he’d overheard Landon talking about his date the night before with Amanda Pressley, the woman Lucas had been out with two nights ago.

It had been the best first date of his life, but then he’d heard Landon say the same thing to their brother Will. Hearing that, the euphoria Lucas had walked around with since his evening with Amanda had fizzled like steam hitting cold air.

Tonight, he had to go make nice with Landon and the rest of their family, who were gathering at the barn where the ten Abbott siblings had been raised, to celebrate his and Landon’s twenty-seventh birthday. Happy birthday to him and the last person on earth he wanted to hang out with right now. That, in and of itself, was a first. Lucas and Landon were known for being “thick as thieves,” as their grandfather often said.

Lucas stepped out of the shower in his loft over the barn at the family-owned Christmas tree farm that Landon managed. He hadn’t wanted to live on the property, so he’d given Lucas the apartment and found his own place on the outskirts of Butler, the town they called home. For a brief time, they’d entertained the idea of living together in the loft apartment.

Thank God they hadn’t done that, because Lucas would be packing his stuff after today.

Studying his reflection in the mirror, he encountered the face of a changed man. Maybe it was his birthday, or perhaps it was meeting a woman who truly interested him. He wasn’t sure what it was, but something was definitely different. He’d gone so far as to shave the beard he normally sported during the winter, because he’d thought she would prefer him clean-shaven. Now he was growing it back. Thankfully, his beard came in quickly. He didn’t want anyone mistaking him for Landon.

The situation had him unsettled and pissed off as he dressed in his usual winter uniform of thermals, flannel, denim and insulated boots before stepping into the frozen tundra to head to his parents’ house. He should’ve made up a fake illness to get out of the annual pizza and cake tradition, but like the rest of his siblings, Lucas was robustly healthy. They wouldn’t believe him if he’d said he was sick.

Since the last thing he needed was an Abbott family inquisition, he got into his truck and headed for Hells Peak Road, taking the most direct route through town. On Elm Street, he drove past the family’s Green Mountain Country Store on the right and his sister-in-law Megan’s diner on the left. Technically, his grandfather, Elmer, owned the diner, but Megan was the one who made it happen.

As he approached the one-lane covered bridge that was located right before the turn onto Hells Peak, he stopped short, slamming on the brakes to avoid hitting Fred, the town moose, who stood in the middle of the road, seemingly without a care in the world.

Lucas laid on the horn.

Fred gave him a perturbed look, but he didn’t move.

“Great.” Lucas shifted the truck into Park, accepting that he was going to be late for his own party. He wished he could’ve headed to his woodshop and lost himself in the work that fed his soul, especially at times like this when his soul needed nourishment. Being at odds with anyone in his family was the worst. Being at odds with Landon had the power to break him.

In a family of ten kids, there’d been plenty of arguments and actual fights. But he had never once truly argued with Landon, who had been his ally and best friend for every day of their twenty-seven years.

Until Amanda came to town and they’d both asked her out. Not wanting to hurt any feelings, she’d accepted both invitations. No one ever took him or Landon seriously, so why should she? Especially after the way they’d behaved during the intimate line demonstration she’d overseen on behalf of her company at his family’s store.

Lucas cringed thinking about the questions they’d asked and the comments they’d made. It was like they couldn’t help themselves, although who could be expected to behave in a room full of family members and sex toys? Amanda had handled them with skill that indicated it wasn’t her first rodeo when it came to dealing with buffoons. In her line of work, she probably met her fair share of guys like him and Landon, who’d found the whole thing hilarious.

She probably thought they were both jerks but had humored them by going on separate dates with them. Her company had landed a big account with their family’s store, so she was just being nice—and professional.

That made him sad and mad at the same time. If Landon hadn’t asked her out at the same time Lucas had, they wouldn’t be in the unfortunate position of pursuing the same woman. It was ludicrous when he really thought it over—neither of them had ever had any problem attracting female attention. In fact, they usually had more attention than they could handle. So why, when it truly mattered to Lucas for the first time ever, did Landon have to set his sights on the same woman?

Being at odds with Landon made Lucas feel ill. It went against every natural impulse he had to go out of his way to avoid his twin the way he had all day today. They had been the best of friends their entire lives. Even when their other siblings had fought like tomcats, he and Landon had risen above it. Sure, they had fought with their othersiblings, but never with each other. Hunter and Hannah, their older siblings, who were also twins, had been the same way—best friends.

He ached at the thought of losing that bond with Landon, especially since they were together more often than not. Between their shifts as volunteer firefighters and the time they spent doing other things, such as skiing, rock-climbing, hiking and other outdoor pursuits, they were constant companions.

And if it came to a choice—Landon or Amanda…

“Ugh.” Of course he’d choose his brother over a woman he’d only just met, but what a bitch of a dilemma.

As if he could hear Lucas, Fred let out a loud moo.

Lucas laid on the horn again, hoping to convince Fred to move along, but Fred wasn’t intimidated by a horn—or much of anything, for that matter, except Hannah. She had a way of dealing with the moose that made her husband, Nolan, crazy. He feared tiny Hannah would be smooshed by the moose that Hannah called a pussycat.

Lucas tried the siren that was built into his truck for times of emergency, but Fred shot him a look full of disdain, as if to say, Is that all you got?

Thinking about Fred was preferable to wondering what the hell he was supposed to do about his brother and Amanda.

Lucas’s date with her had been close to perfect. The conversation had flowed, they’d laughed at the same things, had similar interests, and she absolutely loved their tiny town of Butler, Vermont, as well as the Green Mountain Country Store his family had run for three generations.

She’d had a million questions about the family business and how it worked and how the Abbotts managed to keep business and personal separate. Though Lucas didn’t actually work in the store, it had always been part of his life, and he could answer her questions about the family dynamics as well as any of the others who worked in the office. He sold most of his woodworking products in the store, including hand-carved bed frames, dressers and hope chests as well as smaller items such as carved moose that sold like wildfire, so he was definitely involved.

Lucas put down the window and stuck his head out. “Come on, Fred. Be a sport. It’s my freaking birthday, and it’s already been a bitch of a day. Have a heart and move your ass, will you?”

Fred eyed him as if he was considering the request.


With another loud moo, Fred took one step forward and then another.

“Was he honestly waiting for me to say please?” Lucas asked the universe as he put up the window, put the truck in Drive and headed over the bridge toward home. He hadn’t lived in the barn in years, but it would always be home to him and his siblings. As he pulled into the driveway that was already full of pickup trucks and SUVs built to withstand brutal Vermont winters, his grandfather, Elmer, was getting out of his truck.

Lucas parked and went to greet his grandfather, who was waiting for him.

“Oh, hey, Luc.” Elmer said his name after giving him a close look to make sure he got it right. Elmer was one of the few people in their lives who almost always got it right. “I couldn’t tell what color your truck was in the dark.”

His was navy. Landon’s was black. Same model. Shocker, right?

Lucas gave his grandfather a hug. “How you doing, Gramps?”

“I’m good.” He patted Lucas on the back. “Happy birthday, buddy.”


“I can’t believe you guys are twenty-seven. Where does the time go?”

“And still such nitwits.”

“You said that, not me.”

Lucas laughed as he held the door to the mudroom for Elmer. “Saved you the trouble.”

“You boys like to have fun. Nothing wrong with that.”

A few days ago, he would’ve agreed with Elmer’s statement. Now he had reason to wonder how a guy transitioned from acting the fool to being an actual adult. That was his goal for the next year. He would be mocked ruthlessly by his siblings and others who had come to expect certain behavior from him, but he wouldn’t be deterred in his goal to take his game up a few notches.

Having a plan for himself helped as he hung his coat on the hook with his name on it, which was to the left of Landon’s. He’d been born ten minutes before Landon. Since Landon’s hook was empty, Lucas realized he’d gotten there first. Taking a quick glance at the hooks, he noted that everyone else was there.

Lucas took off his hat, tucked it into the pocket of his coat and ran his fingers through dirty-blond hair to bring some order to it. This time of year, everyone in Vermont suffered from a terminal case of hat head. He stepped into the kitchen and received a warm, welcoming smile from his mother.

“There’s one of my guests of honor.”

Lucas wondered what it might be like to have a birthday all to himself and then immediately felt guilty for having the thought. “Hi, Mom.”

Molly Abbott, her gray hair in a long braid down her back as usual and her pretty face bright with pleasure over an evening with her family, hugged him. “Happy birthday, Luc. Twenty-seven looks good on you.”

He stuck out his chin. “Better than twenty-six did?”

“Much better.”

“He had nowhere to go but up,” their youngest brother, Max, said when he joined them in the kitchen with his baby son, Caden, in his arms.

Molly tried to hide her smile but failed miserably.

Lucas scowled at his brother and reached for the baby, noting the cacophonous noise coming from the family room where the rest of the family was probably watching the Bruins game.

Max handed the baby over to his uncle. “Don’t listen to a word he says, buddy, and don’t do anything he does.”

In light of his recent revelations, Lucas couldn’t help being slightly wounded by Max’s teasing comments. Not that he hadn’t earned the jibes. He certainly had, but that was going to change, effective immediately. He snuggled Caden into his chest and kissed the top of his silky head. The little guy always smelled so damned good. His little fist grasped ahold of Lucas’s flannel shirt, catching a bit of chest hair that made his uncle wince from the tug of pain. “Easy, pal. Uncle Luc doesn’t need any bald spots. Not yet anyway.”

“Hey!” His oldest sister, Hannah, let out a happy squeak when she came around the corner from the dining room and nearly crashed into Lucas. “Happy birthday!”

“Thank you.” He leaned down so she could kiss his cheek. “Where’s my niece?”

“With her daddy. She’s all about him these days, except for when she’s hungry. Then Mommy is number one.”

Lucas smiled at the face Hannah made to express her displeasure while knowing full well she was madly in love with the daughter she’d waited forever to have—and the husband who’d made her so damned happy. “Fred was being Fred again on the way over here. Blocking the road to the covered bridge.”

“He’s been ornery lately.” Hannah acted as if she had a direct bead on Fred’s moods, which she sort of did, not that anyone wanted to admit that out of fear of encouraging her moose-whispering activities. The best part was that she didn’t even think that her unique bond with a full-grown bull moose was weird. Everyone else did, though, especially Nolan, who was continuously freaked out by her close encounters of the moose kind. “Ever since I took Baby Dexter home with me, he’s been out of sorts.”

“Has it occurred to you that Fred liked having Baby Dexter around and maybe he didn’t want you messing with it?” Lucas asked.

“Of course it has, but he has no business raising a baby moose.”

Bouncing Caden, who seemed to have dozed off, Lucas raised his brows in disbelief. “And you do?”

“I’m better at it than Fred is. At least with me, the poor baby is getting regular meals and lots of love.”

“Which is critical to moose development.”

“Every baby needs lots of love. Moose are no different.”

It took effort on Lucas’s part not to roll his eyes. Knowing she was dead serious kept him from mocking her—that and his newfound intention to act more like an adult than a buffoon. The sound of a baby crying in the next room had Hannah spinning around to go to her daughter. “Speaking of babies…”

When they were alone, Lucas gazed down at Caden’s sleeping face. “Auntie Hannah may be nuts, buddy, but she’s the best kind of nuts.” Lucas admired his older sister more than just about anyone he knew. After enduring the devastating loss of her first husband, Caleb, in Iraq, watching her find new love with Nolan had been inspirational. And now they had baby Caleb, whom they called Callie, and Hannah smiled all the time. If taking care of a baby moose made her happy, so be it. If anyone had earned the right to be happy, it was Hannah.

“Was she going on about the baby moose again?” Nolan asked, his mouth full of cheese and cracker.

“Maybe?” Lucas hesitated to toss his sister under the marital bus.

Nolan groaned. “She’s round the bend over that baby. Wanted to bring him in the house the other night because it was too cold for him outside. I have to keep telling her he’s a wild animal, not a house pet.”

“He’ll be a house pet by the time she’s done with him.”

“That’s what I’m afraid of—having a full-grown bull moose in bed between me and my wife.”

Lucas snorted with laughter. “Might be a good idea to nip that in the bud.”

“Ya think?”

“What’re we nipping in the bud?” Lucas’s father, Lincoln, asked as he came from the family room to join them.

“Hannah’s affair with the baby moose,” Nolan said. “If she had her way, he’d be in bed with us.”

“Oh dear,” Linc said. “Probably best to not let that happen.”

“I hate to tell you this, Linc, but there’re times when your daughter is downright unmanageable,” Nolan said.

“She gets that from her mother,” Linc said.

“I can hear you, Lincoln Abbott,” Molly said, “and you will pay for that later.”

“Sorry, Nolan,” Linc said. “You’re on your own.” Heading toward his wife, Lincoln said, “You heard me wrong, love.”

“No, I did not.”

“No wonder my wife is nuts,” Nolan said. “She was raised in a nuthouse.”

Lucas cracked a grin. “You’re just figuring that out now?”

“Oh, I’ve known it for a while.” Nolan had grown up with Lucas’s older siblings and had been in and out of the Abbotts’ barn for decades. Nolan’s crush on Hannah had developed years after his close friend Caleb had died. And no one doubted Nolan’s fierce love for his wife, despite her moose antics.

The door to the mudroom slammed shut, jolting Caden.

Lucas rubbed the baby’s back. “Easy, buddy.”

“Quit slamming that door,” Molly said to Landon.

“Sorry, Mom.” Landon laid a loud smacker on Molly’s cheek. “It’s my birthday. Don’t I get a pass on door slamming?”

“No door slamming in this house, even on your birthday. It’s in the Abbott family rule book.”

“I never got my copy,” Landon said, making his twin smile. Lucas would’ve said the same thing. “Mom, you remember Amanda, right? I hope it’s okay that I invited her to join us.”

Lucas froze.

Landon had brought Amanda to their birthday dinner? No way.

“Of course it’s all right,” Molly said. “The more the merrier is the Abbott family motto, which you’d know if you’d read the rule book. Welcome to our insane asylum, Amanda.”

When Amanda laughed, Lucas wanted to turn to look at her, but remained rooted in place, barely able to breathe, let alone move. “Thank you so much for having me, Mrs. Abbott.”

“Please, call me Molly. Everyone does.”

Lucas listened to them with a surreal feeling of detachment as his mind raced to catch up. Amanda had come to their birthday dinner. With Landon.

Worst birthday ever.

Life coach and best-selling author Victoria Price has it all: a successful career, fabulous friends, a fantastic penthouse in Manhattan. What she doesn’t have—and doesn’t want—is a husband. Fifteen years ago her high school flame broke her heart so badly she swore she’d never love again.


Drop-dead sexy restauranteur and infamous playboy Parker Maxwell has only three rules for the women he dates: no questions about his past, no expectations for the future, and no spending the night. When he meets Victoria, however, he’s willing to break his own rules if it means sating the explosive desire she arouses in him. What he doesn’t know is that the alluring Victoria Price used to be the mousy Isabel Diaz, the girl he deflowered and dumped long ago.


Presented with a perfect opportunity for revenge, Victoria decides the game is on. But when her connection with Parker proves more than just skin deep, she has to make a choice: continue with her plan for payback, or risk her career, her reputation, and her heart by taking a second chance on love?

About the Book


He's the powerful CEO. I'm the know-it-all intern.


Things went further than they should have, but I don't have any regrets. Well, maybe just one . . .

I went and did the one thing he told me not to--fall in love with him.

Now I have seven days to prove my trust and devotion. Turns out money is a powerful drug, but love is even more addictive.


Seven Nights of Sin is the stunningly sexy and heart-tugging conclusion to The Two Week Arrangement.

About the Book


Dear Sexy AF Intern,


I know you don't particularly care that I'm the CEO of this company, and you're just an intern. I also know you're not impressed by my power or my wealth, and that's fine.

You think you've got me all figured out from working alongside me for two weeks, but you don't know me. Not really.

You don't know that I'm a single dad to twin toddlers, or that those two little girls matter more to me than this entire hotel chain.

I'm not interested in starting something deep and meaningful, but what I am interested in is the way your body reacts to mine when we're in the same room. You probably assume the concentration on my face is work-related, when in reality, I'm figuring out which I want more--to nail you against the wall, or to bend you over my desk.

While you're too disciplined to act on it, I'm not. And the night you stepped into my limo, all bets were off.

The Two Week Arrangement (Penthouse Affair, #1)The Two Week Arrangement by Kendall Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Professional becomes personal when attraction comes out to play. Talk about risky business. For this relationship to work, it will take some some smooth moves and some naughty behavior and a whole lot of sneaking around. Kendall Ryan never misses a step in engaging readers. From sassy to sexy, she continues to keep a smile on my face and a tingle in my heart. The Two Week Arrangement may seem a bit Cloak and Dagger, but the risky behavior is part of what keeps things fun.

An unforgettable one-night stand filled with heat
and passion starts the unraveling of a love-hate
feud between a small-town baker and an arrogant cowboy.

When Katarina shows up at the Circle B Ranch Bed &
Breakfast to serve her new gluten-free, sugar-free, organic pastries, Braxton decides to make her life
hell for kicking him out the next morning and then
pretending he never existed.

First step, make fun of her tasteless muffins.

Second step, get revenge.

Soon the duo are at each other’s throats, getting even until
things go too far and the chemistry burns too hot.

Kat claims their night together meant nothing.

He’s determined to prove her wrong.












Roping the Cowboy (Circle B Ranch, #1)Roping the Cowboy by Kennedy Fox

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Heat is not a problem for Kat and Braxton. In an instant, they go from virtual strangers to a one night stand. However, when the sun comes up, so do the barriers that stand in their way. Lust and love, battle it out, with tons of help from foolish pride. Roping the Cowboy burns it's way into the bloodstream. Fox seduces with a little more naughty, tons of humor and a whole lot of frustration.

"I can’t be near him. We were a disaster."


"I still want her. She leaves me breathless."



Two years ago, Jake and I ended things. Badly.

For my own sanity, I have to avoid him. Now, he doesn’t want anything to do with me and the feeling is mutual.

But a sick horse throws us back together, and when I’m around him, it’s difficult to be professional. Especially when all I want him to do is put me over his shoulder, carry me away, and finish what we started two years ago.



Dylan says she broke everything between us last time for a good reason. But now she’s back and my feelings for her haven’t gone away.

We might have a second chance, but how can I trust that she won’t do the same thing this time?


Leave Me Breathless is the fourth standalone HEA in the Arizona Heat series. If you like stern cowboys, steam and discipline, this book is for you!
