A cowboy like that could break your heart…
Fleeing her latest love-life disaster, big city journalist Libby Brown’s transition to rural living isn’t going exactly as planned. Her childhood dream has always been to own a farm-but without the constant help of her charming, sexy cowboy neighbor, she’d never make it through her first Wyoming season.
But he could sure keep you warm at night, too…
Handsome rancher Luke Rawlins is impressed by this sassy, independent city girl. But he yearns to do more than help Libby out with her ranch. He’s ready for love, and he wants to go the distance…
Then the two get embroiled in their tiny town’s one and only crime story, and Libby discovers that their sizzling hot attraction is going to complicate her life in every way possible..

Girl gets tired of city life. Girl moves to ranch. Girl falls in love with hunky cowboy next door. Suspense. Sex. Love. Happy Ending.  It may sound like the normal romance book featuring cowboys, but there is a lot of wonderful story in between each of those sentence’s.  The author does a wonderful job of making this story flow smoothly and giving the reader everything they come to expect from a romantic western love story.  You get the handsome cowboy,(just look at the cover), the strong heroine, plenty of suspense and intrigue throughout and steamy love scenes all in a nice little book.  The author is new to me, but is now on my automatic to buy list.  

After 25 years in the business of selling books, I finally decided to sit down and write one. Five years and a lot of hard work later, I’m looking forward to the publication of my first novel, Cowboy Trouble, coming from Sourcebooks March 2nd.
Cowboy Trouble combines humor and suspense in a romance written for women whose interests range beyond high heels and hairstyles–readers whose idea of high fashion is wearing their Wranglers in “slim fit” instead of “cowboy cut.”

Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
For Rereading!
