Never fall in love with a Carter cowboy…

After the humiliation of getting fired from her job in the city, Fiona Cafferty finds herself back home on the family ranch. Like it or not, she’ll be stuck working there until she can find another job. But she wasn’t prepared to work beside her old high school nemesis, Eli Carter.

Eli sure had changed over the years. For one thing, he’s grown up to become a smoking hot cowboy. He’s also a sweet, caring single dad now, which Fiona finds even sexier. So, when they run into Eli’s snarky ex-wife, Fiona comes to his rescue and claims they’re a couple. Now they’re stuck in a fake relationship. But her attraction is definitely real…

Eli is not a happy cowboy. Not only was he humiliated by his cheating ex, but now he’s worried that everyone will find out he’s got a fake girlfriend. He can’t imagine pretending to love someone like Fiona, who’s so vexing. And beautiful. And irresistible…

The last thing Eli wants to do is fall in love with another woman who won’t stick around. Too bad his heart just won’t listen to reason…

The heart wants what the heart wants…

Web designer Zoe Wilson has two good reasons to avoid Cafferty ranch. First, she’s scared of horses. And second, she absolutely does not want to bump into her first love, Jake Cafferty. Too bad her best friend just happens to be Jake’s sister.

When she asks Zoe to update the ranch’s outdated website, Zoe agrees—happy to lose herself in the digital world. But the more time she spends near Jake, the more all those feelings from years ago rear up in her heart, kicking like a wild bronco…

Jake never told anyone, but Zoe broke his heart when they were kids. Now she’s back, and the gruff cowboy vows there’s no way he’ll let that happen again. But there’s something about Zoe that he just can’t resist, and he soon finds himself falling for her all over again… Hard.

When Zoe gets accepted into a prestigious program, she doesn’t want to give up on their love. But Jake can’t bring himself to leave the ranch.

Can these two broken-hearted souls finally come together? Or will they be torn apart for good…

That Cowboy of Mine by Donna Grant

Posted April 26, 2022 by Marsha in 2022 New Release Challenge, Modern Western Romance, NetGalley, Romantic Suspense, Sexual Content / 0 Comments

Is he an enemy?

Dillon Young is proud that she inherited her aunt’s ranch. The problem: someone is trying to run her off and is willing to do whatever it takes. Strange, dangerous things keep happening. Dillion suspects her no-good neighbor and fellow wealthy rancher, Hank Stephens. Never a man to get his hands dirty, he sends others to get the job done. So, when the irresistible Cal Bennett is found passed out drunk on her property, Dillion is on high alert. Until someone takes a shot at her and Cal springs to her rescue. When the hard-bodied, no-nonsense-talking cowboy points out that she may need some help, Dillion is inclined to reluctantly agree.

Or a lover?

Waking up on a stranger’s property with a shotgun in his face is not Cal Bennett’s idea of a good time. Never mind that the person on the other end of the barrel is one of the most fiercely beautiful women he has ever seen. Things get more interesting when he finds himself shielding her from flying bullets. It’s clear that this smart, savvy woman could use a hand and Cal is all too happy to lend any part of his body she requires. His proposal: pose as lovers until they find out who is after her ranch. As the danger rises and secrets are revealed, the passion explodes between them and there is no turning back.
