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.

Can Cupid Cure Not Only a Disease, But a Heart as Well?

Kyle Lawrence must fulfill a bet by dancing naked around the Cupid statue at midnight. Only he doesn’t believe in the superstition of finding true love, and at this moment, he doesn’t have time for forever after. A beautiful investigator from the USDA has arrived to warn of a possible cattle epidemic. 

Life has not been easy for Dr. Tempest Tangier. A no nonsense veterinarian, who arrives in Cupid to investigate the possibility of a deadly cattle disease and end the infectious spread. But when she shows up at the Lawrence clinic, only to see a naked man breaking in, she quickly realizes the town holds more secrets than her past.

Can a rigid doctor with a famous past and a veterinarian with a gentle heart determined to save the cattle and the livelihood of his neighbors work together and in the process rescue each other?

 From award-winning author Debra Clopton comes the Texas Matchmakers series—about three older women who set off a nationally advertised "Wives Wanted Campaign" to bring women to their small town of Mule Hollow to marry the lonesome cowboys. A far fetched idea that's working—look out fellas, the women are coming one car at a time!

 

Bound for California, candy-maker Dottie Hart can’t turn her back on a teenage girl hitchhiking her way to Mule Hollow, Texas. Fearful for the girl, Dottie changes directions and heads toward the tiny town that’s advertising for wives for its lonesome cowboys.


Sheriff Brady Cannon has enough trouble on his hands with the chaos the matchmaking ladies in town have caused with their off the wall scheme to save the tiny town. When the gorgeous candy-maker with a heart as sweet a sugar shows up he’s suddenly dreaming of candy kisses and forever…but he’s got his own reasons for staying single.

After making a major dating mistake, Cooper Presley has sworn off women. But then he meets his new neighbor and she's making his new “no dating policy” hard to abide by. She's special and he knows it, but what's he going to do about it?


Beth Lee is happy to settle into her new property with her baby goats and her dreams of a small productive farm. Forced to hide from her ex-boyfriend, she isn't looking for romance of any kind. Especially with a cowboy with a jealous ex of his own. But after Cooper rescues her baby goats she can't get the handsome cowboy off her mind.


When her past catches up to her, Cooper Presley comes to her rescue. Now, despite all the rumors and the jealous ex’s, Beth is at risk of falling in love with the sexy cowboy.
