Chloe Muirhead thinks all that is left for her is spinsterhood.  After she has fled from London two different times, she never wants to set foot back in town.  So instead she has sought refuge with her mother’s godmother, a Duchess who takes her in as a companion.  She never dreamt of meeting the Duchesses grandson and finding a kindred spirit.

Ralph Stockwood has wounds from the Napoleonic wars that are both visible and invisible.  It is the invisible ones that have changed him more than people know.  When he is called to his grandparents’ house to yet again receive the “you need an heir” speech he resigns himself to find a wife.  What he doesn’t expect is that his grandmother’s companion will proposition a marriage of convenience.  Convenience in that they will both get what they want.  She wants a husband, children and a place to live far away from town.  He wants someone who knows he can’t love and will give him an heir.

What neither is prepared for is how they fit so well together, both in thoughts and actions.  When tragedy strikes and their situation changes it is nice to see how the author has shown them growing together.  While I thought that Ralph was more than a “little” cruel at times it did not ruin the story for me.  I loved seeing their love bloom and grow.  While a promise is to be broken, it might be the way to drive these two closer.  Only A Promise is a heartfelt historical that will make you smile.

Talon “Tals” Garrity has always been hooked on Maddie Wells. But family and other issues kept them apart in the past. Now in the process of getting a divorce, Maddie has returned to Skulls Creek, determined to find Tals. Maddie plans to find Tals and get the chance with him that she missed out on in the past. Tals has never forgotten Maddie but he’s not sure he wants to revisit the past, no matter how much he’s dreamt about Maddie over the years. Now with her soon-to-be ex-husband’s shady business deals bringing danger to Maddie, Tals is set on protecting her. But will he protect his heart or will he take a chance on Maddie?

 

Vipers Rule is the first book of Stephanie Tyler’s Skulls Creek series that I’ve read but I’ve quickly added the others to my must read list. Talk about missing out on a series! Tal and Maddie kept me enthralled as I turned the pages but the tease of Preacher and Rocco left me wanting more! Sexy with just the right amount of danger, Vipers Rule shouldn’t be missed.

Vince Durant returns to his hometown of Bickford, Texas determined to do the two things he never did before he left, catch the wild stallion called Ghost and convince Georgina Bickford she should go out with him.  Georgina has always stayed in Bickford, determined to keep her store open even as the small town seems to be dying around her. When Vince arrives he finds himself being drawn into the effort of keeping Bickford alive. As Georgina and Vince work together they begin to fall in love. But Vince has no intention of staying and Georgina will never leave Bickford. Can they save the town they both love and find a way to stay together?

 

Crazy for the Cowboy by Vicki Lewis Thompson started off a little slow so I had a hard time really getting into it at the beginning. But as I got further and further in I found myself falling in love with Bickford and with Vince and Georgie. I was cheering for them to find a way to save this small town and for Vince to figure out that Georgie was the home he didn’t know he was looking for. This sweet romance is a hidden gem that is perfect for readers looking for that feel good moment!
