The biggest risks yield the greatest gains—especially in the game of love.

Emily Wolfe, real estate agent to the elite, is tired of being alone. So when she gets a chance to compete on a reality dating show she decides to risk it all for love in the biggest game of her life.

The city girl is surprised how much she enjoys switching her high heels for cowboy boots and pedicures for mud treatments—and not the kind you find at a day spa. And she’s falling hard for Wil Parker, the sexy, rugged farmer at the centre of the show.

Amidst the chaos, tantrums and editing tape, the heat and passion between Emily and Wil reaches boiling point. But can they survive the imminent explosion, let alone the fallout?

Cowboy Sayings Are the Best!

If you’re read any of my historical romances, you know that I have a “cowboy saying” at the beginning of each one. Cowboys are the best philosophers! They have a way of putting things in perspective, and I appreciate that.

For fun, let’s look at some of my favorites and their categories.

Women and Men
“A woman who intends to lean on her husband for support better be sure he stands on solid ground.”
“A fool and his money are soon married.”
“Allow no war parties in your bed.”
“A wedding ring should cut off the wearer’s circulation.”
“A lot of what a man knows, a woman knows better.”
“When a woman starts draggin’ a hoop, there’s always a man willin’ to step in it.”
“If a man thinks that a woman who can dog steers, ride broncs, and rope the wind is too much for him. he’s probably right.”

Common Sense
“You can’t be hurt by words you don’t say.”
“The more inches you give a man, the more he becomes a ruler.”
“If you get all wrapped up in yourself, you’ll find you make a pretty small package.”
“Be sure that the goin’ up is worth the comin’ down.”
“A drunken tongue tells what’s on a sober mind.”
“You can hatch chicks in the oven, but that don’t make them biscuits.”

Good Advice
“You can educate a fool, but you can’t make him think.”
“Don’t hang your hat on someone else’s peg.”
“It’s hard to put a foot in a shut mouth.”
“Just cause a man ain’t yet had a chance to steal, don’t make him honest.”
“Secrets are easy to hear and hard to keep.”
“It’s safer to have a good enemy than a bad friend.”
“You’ve got to control yourself before you can control your horse.”

See what I mean? I swear I could plot a book around most of these. Seasoned cowboys are men of few words, so when they say something it’s worth hearing and taking to heart.

Keifer Vassago, The Prince of Dragons, has enough on his plate without adding a brunette with a bad attitude to the mix. Fate has a way of screwing all his plans, though, whether he wants them screwed or not. One second he’s fetching his brother from yet another situation that could possibly compromise the Vassago name, and the next that brunette is grabbing his assets.

Blythe isn’t after anyone’s assets, though.  She’s a good girl.  All she wants is to graduate from nursing school, get a job, and move out of her hell hole apartment. What she does not have time to deal with is a sexy bearded man that accuses her of grabbing his junk.

She tries to forget about the encounter, but fate’s a cruel bitch. One second she’s a normal college student barely living paycheck to paycheck, and the next she’s setting her panties on fire with powers from an ancient immortal dragon.

To add insult to injury, she’s hearing voices, and none of them are figments of her imagination. Blythe’s life is turned upside down, and Keifer forces her to adapt even though she doesn’t want to.  She likes her life just the way it is.

Not to mention she wants nothing to do with that arrogant asshole.  She doesn’t care that he rides a dragon.  She also could care less about his stupid beard, and his sexy eyes. Yeah, who was she kidding?  She wasn’t convincing anybody.

“Oh my heavens to Betsey, I was given an opportunity to have a sneak peek at this bad boy from Lani Lynn Vale. First, I love that Lani's style of writing that balances family, feels, and loyalty with lots of life follows through into this series.” - Author Chelsea Cameron

Promo Spotlight: Sweetness by Sierra Hill

I’m the girl from the school of hard knocks.
Nothing has ever come easy for me. So forgive me if I’m a bit reluctant about Kincaid Griffin – born-with-a-silver-spoon in his mouth, conceited college hoops player. A guy who could get any girl he wants, and yet, is suddenly everywhere I am trying to woo me. The more I protest, the more persistent he becomes.

I’m a lucky bastard.

Let’s face it. As a college athlete, I don’t chase girls – they come to me. I’m as arrogant and cocky as they come, getting nearly everything I want, whenever I want. But there is nothing sweeter than a girl who plays hard to get. And Ainsley Locker is so full of confidence that she knocks me off my feet from the moment I meet her. She’s a challenge. And I like challenges. So I go full-court press to win her over.

But when a stupid mistake turns viral, slam dunking all over my life in a media frenzy, my spot on the team may be in jeopardy, along with my shot at winning the girl.

“Sweetness is the perfect title for this book because that’s exactly what it is. Full of heart, full of humor, and full of hotness, this book is an easy 5 stars for me.” ~Keyanna (5 Star Amazon Review)
