FALL FOR ME (BOOK ONE)
Fate put her in his path, and he has no intention of ever letting her go.
Olivia Fairchild gave up her dream of being a barrel racer at nineteen, to follow her first love wherever his life as an F15 pilot took them. When his plane was shot down months later, right before the birth of their daughter, Liv’s world shattered. She returned to her parents’ isolated ranch in Colorado to raise her daughter alone. Before she knew it, her daughter was grown and gone—leaving Liv bored and cranky. She finds herself spending too much time on social media feeds, cyber-stalking the hot guitar player she met at a concert over the summer.
Ben Rice recognized her as soon as he saw her sitting at the bar. Liv, that was her name, and fate kept bringing them together. She caught his eye that night in Colorado. She loved music—and she felt it. Not everyone did. She danced, she laughed, she smiled, she lived. And he was ready to do the same. He’d endured too many struggles in the last few years. He’d worked hard to keep the band going, and he wasn’t going to give up. With a new record about to be released, this was their year—he could feel it.
Used to getting what he wants, Ben pursued the reluctant Liv. But knowing he wanted more from her than she was willing to give, she told him following a man around the globe wasn’t in the stars for her. Been there, done that, retired the t-shirt. She had her own stars to chase this time. When those stars fall around her feet, Ben refuses to let her sweep them up alone. Question is, how can she ask him to stay when she sees how bright his future could be without her?

Wherever he was, Billy owned the air. It belonged to him, and he took it.
Renie Fairchild has been in love with her best friend since they were kids, but now that they’re adults, he still has no idea. Telling him would only destroy their friendship, so she keeps her feelings to herself—until he shows up at her apartment begging for a chance to prove his love. Just when she starts to believe that he’ll never break her heart, his rowdy past bucks them off course. As much as Renie loves him, she’s not so sure she can open her heart to a child who isn’t hers.
It took saddle bronc rider champion Billy Patterson a lifetime to fall in love with his best friend, and it’ll take even longer to win her back. Bad timing brought his daughter into his life just when he thought he could coax Renie’s heart into his hands. If he can’t convince her to stay, Renie might move on forever—taking his heart with her.
KISS ME COWBOY (BOOK THREE)
She’s a woman who’s never been treated the cowboy way—and he’s just the man to teach her what that means. Unless his twin brother gets in the way.
The last place Blythe wants to spend Thanksgiving is at the Flying R Ranch in Crested Butte, Colorado, but that’s where she’s headed. She and her best friend’s family have always celebrated the holiday together, so it was go along, or spend the holiday home alone.
Feeling sorry for herself because she’s dateless and her best friend is newly engaged, Blythe asks Renie to fix her up with a hot cowboy. When she arrives and meets not one, but TWO of the hottest cowboys she’s ever seen, Blythe decides the holiday might not be so bleak after all. When both men compete for her attention, it’s hard for her to choose. Who would win her affection—easy-going, bronc-riding, cowboy Jace, or brooding artist Tucker?
Regardless of whom she chooses, there is a secret being held between the brothers which could drive a permanent wedge between the two men, who each touch a different part of her soul. When the hidden truth is finally exposed, will it tear a family apart, or heal past wounds?
STAY WITH ME (BOOK FOUR)
This professional saddle bronc rider has a habit of falling in love with women who turn around and fall in love with someone else.
It had happened three times, and as much as he vowed to never let it happen again, it does. Although this time, the woman is in love with a guy Jace can’t possibly compete with—a dead man.
Comforting widow Bree, leaves Jace with plenty of gaping wounds himself, and a pent up desire to get to know more about her, other than how much she loved her late husband. But he knows Bree is not ready for that, so he waits...and waits. When she never contacts him again, he takes that as a sign, but that sign doesn’t stop him from wondering what could be if he told her how he felt.
That would be impossible, though, since her sister was married to his brother, who hated him, and they all lived together in Crested Butte, where he wasn’t welcome. Going there would be like walking into a hornet’s nest where he would be stung. Jace had been stung before, so many times he should be immune. He knew he had what it took to go to Crested Butte and pound things out with his twin brother, if necessary. It wasn’t like it was the first time they’d come to blows. What he didn’t know was whether it would be worth it in the end.
Could Bree ever feel about him the way she felt about her former husband? Or would she forever be just another woman Jace was rejected by when the dust settled?
