Drew Paresky runs smack into a large cowboy at the hardware store where she’s buying supplies in her desperate attempt to restore the most derelict B&B in the world. To her surprise, the cowboy, Ray Malory, apologizes to her and helps her haul the stuff home.


Drew isn’t from Riverbend–at least, she’s never been there, even if her grandfather owned the B&B he left her in his will. If she doesn’t fix up the place and turn it around within the year, she’ll lose not only the land but the money her grandfather left her.


Ray’s help is a godsend, but Drew’s not sure whether her growing attraction to him is wise. She’ll fix up the B&B, inherit her money, and return to Chicago, where her life is. Drew can’t afford to set down in roots in Riverbend, Texas, and she certainly can’t afford to lose her heart. Can she?


Note: Much of the action of this book happens in tandem with Riding Hard: Kyle (Book 6). However, Ray's book can be read as a standalone.

If you like your cowboys sexy, your heroines forgetful and your marriages convenient, this gentle parody of cowboy romances will leave you with a smile on your face and a sigh on your lips. Discover romantic comedy at its best in this captivating tale of a woman who finds her one true love and the cowboy hero afraid to give his heart.


Michelle Garrison is a prolific romance writer whose career is suddenly on a downslide. Her plots are boring, her writing is stale and her readers are fleeing for greener pastures. Desperate to revive her career, Michelle sets out to write a bestseller, and who could make a more worthy hero than a cowboy.


Force-marched to a dude ranch by her editor, Michelle soon finds herself trudging along a mountain road with no memory of who she is or where she's going, but thanks to the quintessential sexy cowboy hero, Michelle is saved. Swept up in her cowboy's arms, even Michelle can see the parody in her own story: "Everything she'd read about cowboys must be true, she thought, almost hysterically. No wonder they made such popular heroes in romances."


This is a revised author’s cut reissue—Cowboy in My Pocket was originally published by Hard Shell Word Factory in 2001


"Kate Douglas bills her romance as a 'gentle parody of contemporary category romance' but in doing so creates a delightful love story that proves there's a good reason why certain plot devices become cliches—they really work on an emotional level . . . the author might have thought she was poking fun, but the romance reader has the last laugh with this sparkling romantic comedy!" —Gerry Benninger for Romantic Times Magazine

 

Should she? Or shouldn't she?

When a rough-cut Texas cowboy haunted by his past saves a Park Avenue bride on the run, opposites attract in a big, Texas way in USA Today Bestselling Ann Major's Love With an Imperfect Cowboy.

Hannah Lewis never imagined she'd run from her own magnificent, Upper East Side wedding. Born and bred in a penthouse on Park Avenue, she excels at everything - except maybe juggling a career, planning a wedding and paying attention to her fiancé. But couldn't he have chosen another day to cheat with her twin sister? Now Hannah's headed as far away as she can get from New York and her public humiliation. No one will expect to find her at a dude ranch in Lonesome, Texas … but just maybe she can find herself there.

Liam Stark is trying to hold it together on the anniversary of the worst night of his life. When a stuck-up beauty walks into the Lonesome Dove Bar, full of rough truckers and ranch-hands, she's trouble in red cowgirl boots--trouble that Liam doesn't need. Especially when he offers her safe haven from a storm on his ranch, and she stirs up memories he'd give anything to forget. Liam has lost too many people he loved--his wife and son on a dangerous stretch of Texas highway, and men under his command in the Afghan conflict. This beauty will be gone in a New York minute as well … unless he asks her to stay.

Attraction flames between them, hot as the Texas sun. But when their pasts cause problems, can they trust each other enough to believe they can share a future?

Focused on her internet show, On The Road with Maisy Love. She’s found the perfect place for her next show, The Goodnight Café.

Trouble is, she just tangled with a skunk and a handsome cowboy with serious green eyes and her world just turned upside down, a relationship is not part of her plans.


Too bad for her, Drake Presley is gorgeous, tempting and despite smelling like a skunk he draws her like a bee to honey water.

New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe triumphs with her latest Wyoming Rebels novel, in which a rugged cowboy offers his spare bedroom as "friends only" to the woman he has secretly loved for a decade, and things get complicated in a hurry.


"A must-read series!" ~Theresa L. (Amazon Review)


Ten years ago, the shadows that haunt Ryder Stockton made him walk away from his best friend, the only woman he ever loved. When he sees her in a local café, all his romantic feelings come surging back…twice as strong. She needs a friend. He wants her heart. Can he give her both?


When Zoey Wilson returns to her hometown of Rogue Valley to recover from a shattering divorce, the last thing she wants is romance, especially with the man who broke her heart so long ago. But when her apartment burns down and she moves in with Ryder for a few days as "friends only," suddenly she finds herself getting much closer with her former best friend than she wants…or does she? 


As determined as Zoey is to get out of town as fast she can, the dangerous, handsome cowboy she's always loved is equally determined to do it right this time…and win her heart forever.


"I love this series. All the brothers are fantastic characters…capable of such love and loyalty." ~Lynn S. (Amazon Review)
