As cowboys, the
Langston brothers of Cattle Creek, Texas, know it can hurt like hell to
fall off a horse. But it can hurt even more to fall in love. . . .
Sheriff Seth Langston is head over heels for local wild child Jessie
McAllen and has been for years. The trouble is she has eyes only for
Seth’s rodeo star brother, Chase. Even though he considers Jessie his
girl, Chase is an incorrigible ladies’ man with a wandering eye and no
chance of settling down soon.
Jessie is ready to move away
from Cattle Creek to put her feelings for Chase behind her, but after
she shares a white-hot kiss with Seth, things get a little complicated.
Jessie realizes her heart should have been his all along. And in the
face of sudden tragedy, they’ll discover if their newfound passion will
tear the Langston men apart or make the family stronger than ever.
About The Author
is a wife, mother, and bona fide Southern belle. Published author, expert corn bread maker, and Squirrel Princess.
I live in Tulsa, though I was born in Mississippi. I moved to the
Sooner State when I was seventeen and met my soul mate and best friend
not long after. I’ve retained a little of my Mississippi accent
though most people think I’m from Texas. (?) Rob and I have been
married for over twenty years and have a son–a mom proclaimed prodigy,
I love homemade tacos, shoes, and romance novels–not necessarily in
that order. I’m a big fan of country music, a staunch proponent of
saving the Oxford comma, and I’m shamefully obsessed with all things
I believe that God is love. I guess that’s why I adore romances.
I have always been intrigued with the Amish culture, their gentle
ways and slower-paced lifestyle. (And I love, love, love the fact that
they stay married for their lifetime.) But until recently I never
thought to blend this interest with my penchant for romance. Okay, okay,
I’m a bit old-fashioned and even enjoy the gender roles that are
present in this culture. I love to cook and take care of my family.
Yes, that’s me June Cleaver with a laptop.
I dislike people trying to convince me to read the Twlight series
(I’ll get to it or I won’t, either way I’m good with it), gratuitous
violence, and strawberry ice cream. (I know I’m alone on this last one,
and again, I’m good with it.)
Favorite movies–(besides HP) French Kiss, Maid of Honor, A Lot Like
Love, Just Married, and Sweet Home Alabama. Oh, and Miss Congeniality,
Sabrina (both versions) and a 1940′s movie called Dear Ruth. If you
haven’t seen it, you should! A-dorable. Anything with Doris Day and most
all of Marilyn’s and Audrey’s.
The premise of this book is a boy meets girl and rescues her, now girl
idolizes boy and considers him her boyfriend. Never mind that the boy
rescued her when she was seven and they are now in their mid-twenties,
and he has groupies as he travels around the country on the rodeo
I found myself right in the middle between the main
characters, as I kept walking in both of their shoes, I watched the
light come on Seth when he sees the little children at his nieces
birthday, but Jessie pulled on my heart strings, and actually so did her
These two don’t seem to realize what they are
experiencing, each lost in the thought of brother Chase, but will they
wake up in time to find the happiness they deserve? There are some big
bombshells about to fall, and some sweet happenings, but will it be
enough to bring and keep these two together?
I received this book through the Author, and was not required to give a positive review.
