Can a cowboy thaw her frozen heart?

Ansel is completely off-limits. That’s what Lark tells herself every day when she sees him. He’s her friend. He’s her coworker. And he can never be more. Except she can’t help remembering their one wild night together years ago. And she can’t help but wonder what might have been.

If Lark wants to pretend they’re nothing more than friends, Ansel won’t argue. His hands are full running his family’s feed store. And he’s not willing to risk the friendship they have no matter how badly he wants just one more night with her.

Then one sizzling kiss at the county fair turns them upside down and has Ansel and Lark questioning everything. Are they ready for their second chance at forever?

Georgia Shipley is known to be a heartbreaker and she wears that truth like a badge of honor.
Her father has ordered her to stay away from the new ranch hand—well, all of the ranch hands—but she just can’t help herself. This new one’s a hottie. Exactly her type.

Widower and single dad Hunter Kade needs a fresh start. And then some.
He has one priority right now—taking care of his daughter. To do that, he has to find a job. The ranch hand opportunity at Hickory Hollow is one he can’t afford to mess up.

Hunter has never met anyone like Georgia. She gets under his skin. It’s wonderful and terrible at the same time. But he’s worried about losing the job he desperately needs because of her. She’s a troublemaker and she doesn’t even seem to understand what’s at stake.

These two can’t get along yet they can’t seem to stay apart. The attraction, along with the snippy barbs, crackles in the air like electricity.

As they finally start to pull the layers back, will these two find that they’re more alike than they thought?

A shy woman. Her outdoorsy crush. And the bet that could bring them together…or implode spectacularly.

Nell Delaney will do almost anything for her parents and her two sisters. But enter a marriage of convenience to save the family’s coffee shop? Too far. So Nell and her sisters strike a deal: whoever hasn’t found love in thirty days has to step up to take one for the team. The good news? Nell knows the perfect guy to fall in love with. The bad news? She’s going to have to pretend she likes the outdoors…a lot.

Adventure guide Grant Williams knows immediately that Nell is not exactly Little Miss Outdoorsy. She’s a walking natural disaster—an amazingly adorable disaster. And whoa, their chemistry is unbelievable. Everything between them is so perfect, he’s not even a little bit shocked when he starts thinking of forever…

Right up until he catches the town gossiping about the Delaney sisters’ bargain and realizes she’s just using him to win a bet. His family’s unreliable reputation means he can’t just dump one of the town’s sweethearts. No, she needs to dump him. If she’s going to pretend to be the perfect doting bride, well, he’ll just pretend to be the worst bachelor on the market.

Let the games begin…

A Thousand Moments by Kelly Moran

Posted June 9, 2022 by Marsha in ARC, Contemporary Romance, NetGalley, Seasoned Romance, Series, Small Town Romance / 0 Comments

Wallflower Rosemary Fillmore has never endeavored anything more than a good book, a cool glass of sweet tea, and a cat to curl up in her lap after a long day of teaching teenagers how to dissect literary masterpieces. Dowdy and shy, hardly anyone in her quaint southern town of Vallantine, Georgia, knows she exists, and the only time she has an ounce of confidence is if the world is a fictional one.

So, when three of her star students suddenly start to show an interest in her personal life or lack thereof, she wonders what on earth the girls are after. Or why. And how it involves a certain town librarian. Because she hasn’t exactly agreed with how he’s been running the beautiful landmark into the ground since taking over, and frankly, she’s been more than a little upset about it. Besides, he is probably the sole person more awkward than herself, despite how kind or understatedly handsome he may be.

As the only living descendant of the original town founders, saving the Vallantine Library from destitution falls on Sheldon Brown’s shoulders. And he’s failing. Miserably. The one-hundred and forty-year-old historical building, erected by his ancestors, has been in near ruins for a decade, and the state of the library system is declining.

What he doesn’t need adding to his burden is giggling teenage girls hanging out between the stacks, spying on him, and asking silly questions about their teacher. Even if the woman in question is Rosemary. Pretty, sweet, and utterly endearing Rosemary, who he’s been attempting to ask on a date since forever.

Except he’s chronically gotten the impression she doesn’t approve of him or his attempts to save the library. But then a mishap one night and a strange challenge from an unlikely source will change everything, and he wonders if perhaps two introverted bookworms can get a happy ending, after all.

The Honorable Cowboy’s Convenient Marriage by Melody Archer

Posted June 5, 2022 by Marsha in 2022 New Release Challenge, ARC, Booksprout, Contemporary Romance, Modern Western Romance, Series, Small Town Romance / 0 Comments

The day Dakota Callahan left their small town, Sarah was glad. He was the man she had secretly loved for years. He saved her from the horrible man who tried to kidnap her as a teenager. But the last time she saw him, Dakota had been facing so much grief, loss, and pain that he had overstepped his boundaries with her. It had shaken Sarah to her core.

Now two years later, Dakota was back. To her, this man was larger than life and twice as dangerous. Sarah was worried that she would fall for him a second time. This time, she feared that the heartache would be more than she could bear.

Dakota couldn’t believe he was back in their small town. Worse, that he found himself on the mountain, hurt and in pain. As a former FBI agent, he was used to tracking criminals and finding missing persons. Being weak and vulnerable was something he hated. So, when the beautiful Sarah MacDonald finds him limping and in pain, trying to walk down the mountain, he chafes at having to depend on her for help. Sarah insisted Dakota come to stay with her grandfather Angus MacDonald and her in their small cabin until he was fully healed.

When an angry man — a neighbor on the mountain — tries to force Sarah to marry him, Dakota steps in and offers the unthinkable… a marriage of convenience. Trouble comes their way and Dakota has to use all his skills to keep Sarah close to protect her, while still protecting his heart.

Bryce Duncan thinks hiring a party planner for his dad’s 60th birthday is downright silly.

But when his mother leaves him no choice, he has to toss his idea—a family BBQ and a bucket of beers—in the trash. His mother, ever the meddler, hires party planner Lindsey Mackey, a vibrant young woman with a gift and dedication for memorable events. From the moment he meets her, Bryce finds himself annoyed by her constantly upbeat attitude.
It’s going to be a long month of planning…

Lindsey Mackey finds the grumpy cowboy disagreeable, but at least he doesn’t talk much.

Making sure the Duncan family’s party runs like a dream is as natural as breathing—going above and beyond to make sure people have a good time is her favorite part of the job. When she can’t get in touch with Bryce, she hunts him down on the family ranch and quickly realizes this job might be the toughest she’s ever faced. Bryce isn’t making things easy.

But after an accidental kiss, she can’t stop thinking about him.

As Lindsey’s feelings grow, Bryce seems to feel the same… until he messes up. He’s going to have to make things right… or lose her for good.

Tangling with the Cowboy by Audrey Bell

Posted May 27, 2022 by Marsha in 2022 New Release Challenge, Booksprout, Modern Western Romance, Series, Sexual Content, Small Town Romance / 0 Comments

They were supposed to remain strictly professional. But he can’t get enough of her fire…

Now that Shane Pickett’s horse trainer has retired, there are plenty of ranch hands knocking at his door to fill the available position. But one woman stands out above the rest, and it’s not just because she knows her way around a horse. She’s a gorgeous spitfire and Shane would be a fool to let her slip through his fingers just because of his damn pride.

Wynonna O’Neil is no stranger to creatures with bad tempers so she doesn’t bat an eye at Shane’s grumpiness. He can scowl and stomp around all he wants to. It was clear he had a soft spot for her and she was going to wear him down eventually.

When Shane and Wynonna butt heads, sparks fly, and the tension ramps up. Someone has to break. And Wynonna is dead set on melting Shane’s cold, cold heart.
