Summary

"Fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillips will delight" (Publishers Weekly, starred review) in this "sexy, smart" (Lori Wilde, New York Times bestselling author) western romance about a cowboy who comes home to save his ranch, and finds a family along the way.
One of Publishers Weekly's Best Romances of 2018!
After one too many heartbreaks, Travis Blake hung up his cowboy hat and put Big Verde, Texas, behind him. But when he gets the call that his young nephew needs him, he knows he has to return home. His plan is to sell the family ranch and hightail it back to Austin, but there's a small problem: the one person who stands in his way is the one person he can't resist.

Maggie is pretty sure she hates Travis Blake. He's irritating, he's destroying her business, and . . . and he's just so frickin' attractive. But when they're forced to work together, Maggie discovers that the Most Annoying Man in the World is more than he seems. He's sweet with his nephew, he helps out in the community, and he makes her heart flutter. Maggie doesn't want to risk everything on a man who wants to leave, but what if she can convince this wayward cowboy to stay?

Author Notes

Carly Bloom began her writing career as a family humor columnist and blogger, a pursuit she abandoned when her children grew old enough to literally die from embarrassment. To save their delicate lives, Carly turned to penning steamy, contemporary romance. The kind with bare chests on the covers.

Carly and her husband raise their mortified brood of offspring on a cattle ranch in South Texas. Also? Carly is vegan. The cows love her.

Publisher's Weekly Review

In this charming debut, Bloom's adroit humor animates congenial Big Verde, Tex., where Army veteran Travis Blake has returned to prepare the dilapidated family ranch for sale and take responsibility for his five-year-old nephew. Struggling for funds, landscaper Travis attends a fancy Halloween party thrown by a potential client and is unwittingly smitten with his competition, Maggie Mackey. Wolf-masked Travis and Little Red Riding Hood Maggie share a shatteringly sexy anonymous evening. This leads to spicy text exchanges that contrast with the slowly increasing, sweet intimacy of their in-person relationship. The romance provides support for them both as tough Travis learns to be a tender father and Maggie deals with unexpected difficulties with a close friend. A kindhearted subplot involving a gay character enforces the story's overt and subtle takedowns of toxic masculinity. Fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillips will delight in this funny, optimistic, quirky contemporary. Agent: Paige Wheeler, Creative Media Agency. (Nov.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
