Made the Grade: Spikes & Spurs Series, Book 6

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Paperback - Pages: 324; Kindle Edition - File Size: 573 KB | Expected Release Date: December 1, 2012 | Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca | Obtained: NetGalley

"Just a Cowboy and His Baby" [Spikes & Spurs Series, Book 6] by Carolyn Brown

My Book Summary : Gemma recently decided to lease her salon and go on the rodeo circuit as a bronc rider (the only woman in a "man's" sport) in hopes of becoming the second woman to win the Million Dollar PRCA saddle bronc-riding event at the end of the year. That is if Trace, her biggest competition and a man who she completely attracted to, doesn't get in her way during the process. However, once they officially meet they seem to run into each other everywhere, which only increases the combustible attraction running between them. Then when unforeseen circumstances bring them together more permanently it'll take everything they have to see if their growing relationship will work while they are in a continuous 8 second fight of their lives to this bronc riding competition...

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Follow two stubborn, tough, goal seeking people who happen to fall in love during a time in their lives when they weren't looking for it. Admittedly, this was the first novel that I've read by Ms. Brown and though I didn't love this novel as I would have liked (because the description, title, and beginning held such promise), and I didn't hated it at all either. This novel fell into the in between for me because it had my emotions going crazy from happy at the beginning (I loved how Trace & Gemma meet and get together) to confused and a bit upset in the middle (the way that Gemma keeps referencing her past yet doesn't really explain why and how she gets a bit wishy-washy when it came to her feelings) to being thrilled to seeing everything come into place the way I wanted it to.

Overall, I loved Trace & Gemma together! My one wish, for me to like this novel more, was to have the baby be in this novel more than closer to the end of it. That was disappointing.

However, with all that being said, I recommend this novel to anyone who fans of Carolyn Brown and to those who like cowboy romance novels!!

Texas Cowboy Blog Tour Featuring Carolyn Brown and Linda Broday

They are tough, hard working, and have the manners their mama gave them. Is it no wonder that readers are in love with the ultimate hero — cowboys. Today we’ve got Western romance authors Carolyn Brown and Linda Broday to explain exactly what makes a cowboy hero ... by finishing this sentence: “A cowboy’s never fully dressed until he puts on his....”

Linda Broday: ...gun belt and Colt. Danger always rides rancher Cooper Thorne’s trail. The oldest of his blood brothers, is the hero in "Texas Mail Order Bride," Cooper is prepared to defend himself and the people he loves at all times. He’s seen what happens to men who let down their guard and he’s not about to let that happen to him. The West is a dangerous place full of peril at every turn. Men die who don’t respect the lawless land. Though he doesn’t seek violence, he’s accepted that it often comes. So does trouble of other kinds. As a rancher, he’s had to kill rattlesnakes, coyotes and bobcats that threaten his herd and often an animal that breaks its leg. So he has many uses for the gun. It’s a necessary part of a rancher’s life and he’s accepted that.

Carolyn Brown: ...charm. Plain and simple. Sawyer’s mama, in "The Trouble with Texas Cowboys," taught him well when she told him that his handsome looks would take him far in life. That his swagger would draw the women’s eye for a second look. And that his pretty eyes could and probably would get him in trouble more than once before he settled down. But that pure old charm would open doors that nothing else ever could.

Three Cowboys Means One Too Many...

Good morning! Hope your holidays were wonderful and that you are enjoying the beginning of a brand new year. Thank you so much for inviting me to From Me to You... to talk about Sawyer and Jill’s story, "The Trouble with Texas Cowboys."

One sexy Texas cowboy is a hand full but add two more to that mix and you’ve got trouble. Jill hadn’t even had time to get settled in the bunkhouse on Fiddle Creek when a cowboy from each of the two feuding ranches came knocking on her door with an invitation to a family gathering the very next day. Quaid Brennan was the first and she was so startled she agreed to go to Sunday dinner with him. Then when Tyrell Gallagher showed up, she felt like she had to give him equal time. Number three was Sawyer O’Donnell, the cowboy her great aunt was forcing her to share the bunkhouse with but he wouldn’t be a problem. If they got past circling each other like wary feral cats, they might be friends but that was as far as it could go.

The first thing Jill decides is that she damn sure doesn’t want a Gallagher or a Brennan. Sure, they can offer her the moon and stars and either one can give her the biggest ranch in north Texas, but they want to court her for all the wrong reasons. She’s been led down the rich-cowboy daisy path in the not-so-distant past and she knows what kind of pain and heartache lies on that road. But Sawyer−now there’s a cowboy with his smart Irish wit and willingness to protect her that she might think about falling for...just not now.

Folks might think it’s difficult for romance to bloom in the middle of winter while feeding cows, taking care of a general store and spending every evening together at the Burnt Boot Bar and Grill. But flirting and fun can sure be found while a couple is out there in the snow or while they’re working together in close quarters behind a bar or maybe trying to make their way back home after being kidnapped. And a relationship can be born when two people need a partner desperately to keep from being swallowed up by the local feud.

"The Trouble with Texas Cowboys" is the second book in a four book series. There are two more coming so keep your boots on. "One Cowboy Too Many" is Leah Brennan and Rhett O’Donnell’s story. Rhett appears in Burnt Boot riding a big motorcycle with steer horns fixed to the front and Mavis Brennan doesn’t like him from day one but her granddaughter, Leah, is quite smitten with him even though she’s had her eye on forbidden fruit (a Gallagher of all things) for years. Then there’s a fourth book that brings Betsy Gallagher to the table as the heroine. My editor and I are still working on a title for that one.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! Two people are thrown together not knowing that it’ll be the best thing that had ever happened to them...

This novel wasn’t what I expected, since per the book description, I thought there would be more animosity between Sawyer & Jillian (Jill) than there really was. Yet, I really liked how they seem to quickly grow their relationship into something where they can stick up for one another without question and, through it all, it makes them fall in love even when they are trying to avoid a relationships at all costs. These two had an instant connection that was hard not to enjoy, especially as you read about them growing closer while maneuvering around the feuding mess that is on both sides of Jill’s family ranch.

With the way the feud was described and with how the lead up to who the next books in this series will contain it’ll be interesting to see where everything and everyone will end up!

I recommend this novel and series to those who like contemporary cowboy romances!

"Holy shit!" Jill said. "What's going on?"
"News travels fast in a small town. They know you have arrived, and they're going to swamp you with dates," he said.
"But why?"
"Fiddle Creek, and you're a damn fine-lookin' woman."
"But why you?"
"They just want to get rid of the treat. If one of those women can snag me, then that's one cowboy out of their way," he said.
"You sure about that?"
A heavy knock landed on the door.

There is sat, crammed down into a Mason jar, blossom on the bottom, the stem sticking up in the air with the paper still around it. "You got to admit, it looks fine for a rose.

Spreading the Word: Bachelors of Battle Creek Series, Book 2

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Paperback - Pages: 418; Kindle Edition - File Size: 1681 KB | Expected Release Date: May 5, 2015 | Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca | Obtained: NetGalley

"Twice a Texas Bride" [Bachelors of Battle Creek Series, Book 2] by Linda Broday

Authors' Book Description : Scars of the past run deep inside former saloon owner Rand Sinclair, leaving jagged pain and two certainties. He’ll never fall in love again. Never marry.

He finally has the ranch and land he’s dreamed of owning and that’s enough. But when he finds a woman and little boy hiding in one of his outbuildings in the bitter cold, he can’t turn his back. He offers her a safe haven and the warmth of his fire.

Callie Quinn is on the run from a killer outlaw who has vowed to see her dead and take the boy. Slowly, Rand uncovers her secrets and realizes the only way to keep her safe is to push all his chips to the center of the table.

He risks everything…his name…and his heart…for the woman who’s awakened a fierce hunger for love.

Locked in a desperate battle to rid themselves of the outlaw’s special brand of terror, Rand reaches deep inside for every weapon in his arsenal.

Whoever wanted to harm her would have to go through him.

…And he’d go through hell for her.

My Book Review : DNF. Okay, while I LOVED "Texas Mail Order Bride" I struggled with this novel. It wasn't because I didn't like the characters or the setting because I tremendously did. It was because once I put the book down to deal with everyday life, I never felt the urge to get back to it and read more. I wasn't hooked and so I gave up around 30% of the way into it.

Nevertheless, because I LOVED "Texas Mail Order Bride" (Book 1 of this series) so much I still do recommend this novel to those who have read book 1, since you get updated all a bunch of previous characters and submerged into new ones ... you may just be hooked more than I was.

Good luck!

"Forever His Texas Bride"
[Bachelors of Battle Creek Trilogy, Book 3] by Linda Broday

Author's Book Description :
    “There’s this thing between us that refuses to die. I’d like nothing better than to be able to…” His words faded. He’d give anything to change people’s views about his race…to be able to make her his wife.

    But the world wasn’t that simple. Not for people like them.

    She was a pickpocket and he a half-breed.


    All his life, Brett Liberty has straddled two worlds: white and Iroquois. The only place he’s truly at peace is with his wild mustangs. But after he’s arrested for the color of his skin, he discovers Rayna Harper in the cell next to him. Rough and tumble Rayna has known little kindness, but Brett sees the depth of her heart hidden beneath layers of hurt and fear, and he refuses to leave without her.

    Fierce and loyal, kind and strong, Rayna is everything Brett has ever wanted. But the world doesn’t look kindly on a love like theirs, and he would rather let her go than bring her pain. Yet when the demons of his past threaten her future, Brett realizes he will do anything to keep Rayna safe…and make her his.

Book Excerpt :

Rayna sat up, pushed back her cloud of russet hair, and got up from the bunk in Brett’s jail cell. It was then he saw that she wore a heavy pair of men’s brogans. What on earth! The shoes looked as though they might’ve come off a very poor dead man.
Her dirty dress had been mended so many times it looked like a patchwork quilt with none of the squares matching. But she seemed so spirited, so brave.
If society had ever allowed him to take a wife, he’d want someone like her. He hated to think he’d have spent all his life never knowing what it could be like to be happy like his brothers now were. While he waited to die, maybe they could pretend.
Maybe he could know what it was like to be loved.
Until they led him through those doors to a hangman, maybe he could have the bride prejudice had denied him. The bold notion made ripples dance under his skin.
Brett raised to a sitting position, ignoring the pain shooting through his back. “This may sound crazy, but I’m going to ask anyway. Rayna, do you think you could pretend to be my wife? Just until they take me away? No one will ever know but us, so they can’t hurt you.”
Turning, she dropped down beside him. Surprised tears bubbled in her eyes. “No one ever asked me to marry them before.”
“Is that a no?”
“I’d be honored to be your pretend wife,” she whispered, brushing his face with her fingers. “What do we do now?”
“Do you mind if I kiss you?”
“I’d like that…husband.”
Under her bright gaze, he lowered his head. But before their lips touched, the sound of a key grating in the lock made him jerk back. “Quick, go to your cell before they catch you with me.”
Rayna scurried into hers and quietly eased the door shut.
Just then a deputy sauntered in, taking care to keep his distance from Brett’s cell. “You alive, breed?”
Brett glared. “Disappointed?”
The deputy—a squat man who reminded Brett of a possum with little weasel eyes, grunted, shifting his gaze to Rayna. “Give any thought to my offer, woman?”
No one had to spell out what the deputy meant. Brett sought to tamp down his rising anger. He watched Rayna tilt her head at a defiant angle.
“The answer is the same as all the other times.”
The weasel shrugged and went back out. The minute the door locked shut, Rayna slowly walked into Brett’s cell and sat down beside him again. “I wish I could see the sky and smell the fresh air.”
“How long have you been in here?”
“Over a month, I think. With each sunrise I’ve been making a mark on the wall. The one today makes thirty-one. But no matter how much I want out, I’m not doing what that deputy wants,” she whispered. “I’ll never be a fine lady, but even I have my dignity. No one will ever take that.”
Though still hesitant, Brett took her small, dainty hand. Her skin shone white against his. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d touched someone who wasn’t family, but his pretend wife was different somehow. “Always stand on your principles. In the end, we still have to live with ourselves, look at our face in the mirror.”

"How to Marry a Cowboy" [Cowboys & Bride's Series, Book 4] by Carolyn Brown

Authors' Book Description : This cowboy's met his match, and he's gonna put a ring on it

Rancher Mason Harper's two little girls want nothing more than a mama of their own. So when a pretty woman appears on his front porch in a tattered wedding dress, he can't help but wonder if it's fate.

Annie Rose Boudreau is in a downright hellish mess. She's just a few steps ahead of the lowlife ex who's been hot on her heels, but she's tired of running, and nannying Mason's two sweet girls may be just what she needs. As her days on the ranch fly by, and the nights with Mason get hotter, Annie Rose decides that she's going to stay... for a lifetime.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! It was just soo sweet! I kept waiting for "the next boot to drop" or something major to happen to one of the main characters (Annie Rose & Mason) to add a bit more drama but it never happened, this was just a slow and steady contemporary romance that keeps you entertained the whole way through.

Annie Rose & Mason make a good team and couple. Personally, they are so connected and like the same things, I kept wondering what Mason would have done if he met Annie Rose before he married Holly ... which would he have stuck with? I kept thinking that, mostly because Annie Rose & Mason seem so perfect for each other I just can't imagine Holly & him working together well.

But anyways .... I liked the characters ... all of them. Especially Gabby & Lily, who are funny and rambunctious!

I recommend this novel to those who enjoy cowboy contemporary romances!

He pulled her into a big hay barn and pointed to the ladder leading up to the loft. "Best way to see a ranch is through the doors in a hayloft," he said.
She planted a foot on the bottom rung and scampered up the ladder, unhindered by the dress length. Coming back down would pose more of a problem and she'd have to be careful not to get tangled up in the flowing material around her ankles.
He followed her. "You do that like you've done it before."
"It ain't my first rodeo or my first hayloft," she said. ~ within Chapter 8
The title on the front of the third booklet said How to Be a Mommy. She sat down in her recliner and smiled as she opened it.
Number 1: First you got to get kids. You can't be a mommy without kids.
Number 2: Twins are the best kind of kids, because only kids like Damian are little shits. Lily said that Mama-Nanny, so if anyone gets in trouble for bad words, it's got to be her.
Number 3: Girl twins are better than boy twins. Two of Damian would make the angels and even God shudder.
Number 4: You got to love the kids to be a good mommy. We think that you love us almost as much as we love you, so you will make a good mommy.
Number 5: A good mommy would never put her girls in a schoolroom where Damian was or where his mommy was a teacher, neither one. We love you, Mama-Nanny. ~ within Chapter 17

"When In Texas" [Blame it on Texas Series] by Lynda Simmons

Author's Book Description : Jenna Scott loves the open road, solo camping and feeding people. A self-taught chef and lifelong vegetarian, she can’t wait to open her first restaurant and prove that you can make friends with salad. But in Clifton Texas?

Rancher and retailer, Alex Barclay, knows Texans live for steak and brisket. But kale and quinoa? Not so much. While the vegetarian is about as cute as a woman can get, she’s also more than naïve about her business prospects in Clifton. But she has the right to fail anywhere she likes.

The town’s elder statesman disagrees. As far as he’s concerned, Jenna is the next natural disaster to hit cattle country. An insult to ranchers and a menace to the Texas economy.

When he takes a hard line against Jenna, refusing to rent her the space they agreed upon, Jenna is left with spoiling supplies, broken dreams and nowhere to go. Alex’s sense of fair play won’t let him stand back and do nothing. His brother runs a café inside Alex’s store, a space which will be empty for two more weeks until his brother gets back from France. Knowing it will turn a lot of folks against him, Alex offers to let Jenna open a pop-up restaurant in the café anyway. Two weeks to prove that statesman wrong. To show the town that kale and quinoa can indeed live happily ever after with steak and brisket.

Jenna can either accept Alex’s help or get back in her camper and drive, letting that narrow-minded statesman win. A pop-up isn’t what she planned, but Jenna has never been the type to back down from a fight. And for the first time since she can remember, the open road is not as appealing as the cowboy who wants her to stay.

* The Blame it on Texas Series is a Kindle Worlds series based in the universe of Carolyn Brown's "Long, Hot Texas Summer" and "Daisies in the Canyon."
