To Steal a Cowboy’s Heart by Kari Lynn Dell
Shannon McKenzie is one of the best investigators the Montana Department of Livestock can sic on cattle and horse thieves, and her definition of undercover has always been strictly professional. Hotshot rodeo announcer Tyler Jernigan was a dangerous exception…one she nearly paid for with her life.
Over a year later Tyler is still recovering from the devastation of being caught in Shannon’s net–both as a lover and a suspect. Her sting operation left his brother in prison, Jernigan Livestock Auction closed for good, and Tyler convinced that the Shannon who’d thrown him for a loop and then disappeared never actually existed.
Now Shannon and Tyler have come face to face once more, this time on the rodeo circuit. She knows he’ll never forgive her for destroying his family, but she’ll have to get close enough to persuade him not to blow her cover. Does he dare trust the master pretender and risk letting her steal his heart…again?
She laced her fingers together and studied them, her face suddenly the picture of honest regret. “I am truly sorry. I didn’t intend to hurt you.”
“You didn’t,” he said, too quickly, too forcefully. “You lied, you manipulated, and you made a damned fool of me, but I’m fine, thank you.”
Her jaw tightened. “Deception is a necessary part of undercover work.”
“And you, darlin’,” he drawled, “are very good undercover.”
She pushed abruptly to her feet. “This is a waste of time. I only came here to find out whether you intend to tell anyone.”
He lifted a brow. “That depends.”
“Who’s the sucker this time?”

Cowboy Courtship by Allison Merritt
Dean Trulove, a third-generation owner of Trulove Cattle Company and Stockyard, has waited for the day he’d inherit the business. Unfortunately, it comes at the cost of his mother’s heart problems and his dad’s sudden retirement. To relieve some of the pressure, he attempts to pick up a damsel in distress at the local watering hole. Even when he discovers she’s his new employee, he can’t flip the off switch on his object of desire. All the warnings in the world from his old-fashioned father won’t wrestle him away from a woman as skittish as any unbroken horse that’s passed through the stockyard pens.
London Bingham is in a bind—she’s got an unexpected bundle of joy on the way, but luckily, she accepts a new job with an understanding boss. Her only problem is, her sexy boss’s dad, a formidable man with an ages-old stick up his derriere about unmarried mothers in the workplace makes for an uncomfortable situation. As much as she’d like to give in to her persuasive boss and build a relationship, it’s causing work-place trauma and domestic drama.
To Dean, it’s clear that London needs a good ol’ cowboy to show her that she can have it all—a family, a career, and a man with a heart wider than the Arkansas River to remind her that even a woman from the wrong side of the tracks can find the happiness she deserves.
“You hit on London in a bar?” Ryan elbowed Dean in the side.
Dean rubbed his ribs. “I didn’t know she was coming to work here today. It’s for the best that things worked out how they did. That might have been awkward.”
Things hadn’t worked out well for her, before or after her encounter with Dean Trulove. But thank God she’d been spared the embarrassment of waking up to find out she’d slept with one of her bosses. “About that—”
“No need to explain. What happens on your time is your business. Anything that happens here, we’ll deal with as it comes. Ry, you’d better take Miss Bingham to your mom’s—I mean her new office before Patty comes looking for her. She’s mean as an old sow.” Dean winked at her.
Her face warmed again. That wink was a lady killer. The bona fide signature of a man looking to charm the panties right off of a woman. Keep your panties on and your head out of the clouds, London. He’s obviously not hurting because you turned him down. And thank God he’s not pissed about it.

Changing a Cowboy’s Tune by Stephanie Berget
When her fiancé demands Mavis abandon her goal of barrel racing at the National Finals Rodeo, she chooses to follow her dream and loses the man she adores.
Dex wants nothing more than to marry the woman he loves and build a future on his family’s ranch, but when he pushes her to settle into life as a mother and rancher’s wife, she bolts.
Years apart haven’t dampened their desire, but can they see past their own dreams for the future and invent a life they both love?
Dex slid into the booth next to her, his hard thigh brushing against her leg.
The simple touch sent a jolt of electricity through her leg right to her heart. She scooted as close to the wall as she could. It had been foolish to think the years apart would lessen his affect on her.
When he slid closer, she put her hand on his shoulder keep a few inches between them. Another tickle of awareness shot up her arm. Damn! She ate right and exercised, took the best care of her body, and at the first chance, the damned thing betrayed her.
She jerked her hand away and clenched her fingers in her lap.
Dex rested his arm along the back of the booth, his fingers lightly touching her shoulder. He was touching her on purpose, but there was no graceful way to get out of the booth short of crawling under the table. Pretending to flip her hair over her shoulder, she caught the inside of his forearm with her fingernails.
She had to hand it to him. If she hadn’t been watching she would have missed the flinch.
Within seconds, he’d moved his arm back to the table. With a smile, he took a fork and cut off a bite of her pie. “I’ve missed this.”

Catch the Rain by Paty Jager
Running from her past, Kitty Baxter catches a glimpse of her future—if she’s brave enough to believe in herself and the kind-hearted stranger who claims she deserves love.
Focused on setting up his new veterinarian practice, Zach MacDonald becomes sidetracked by a karaoke singing beauty with a secret. He sees what others don’t, and becomes determined to make Kitty see that anyone can learn to catch the rain.
Kitty’s heart soared as she blended her voice with the man’s. He had a beautiful baritone. She stared into his eyes. The warmth and acceptance she saw in their depths started her belly quivering. She’d avoided men, except for two disastrous dates, ever since school and the bullies that had harassed her for being unable to read and having ratty clothes. She’d been an easy target. But she’d shown everyone. She’d run off at fourteen and found a place to live, and she enjoyed the work she did.
The glint of challenge in the man’s eyes had her embellishing more at the end. She held onto the note and finished with a flourish. The music stopped, and she peered into his eyes.
A roar of voices and thundering applause, reminded her she stood on a stage staring into a stranger’s eyes.
She ran off the stage, dropping the microphone on the table. On her way past her table, she snagged her jacket, before running out the back door of the Sidewinder. She didn’t catch her breath or stop her momentum until she sat behind the wheel of her 1960 Ford pickup. Her heart raced, not from her hurried departure, but from the memory of the man’s eyes.

“It is morning, already?” Her voice held a husky note which caused his pants to become even more uncomfortable.
“Yes, but it’s too early to get up. Let’s go to bed, and I’ll wake you properly with my kisses.”
She wrapped her arms around his shoulder and snuggled in closer, nuzzling his neck. “I missed you.”
“Me, too.” He carried her toward the stairs and up to their bedroom. “Let me show you just how much.”
“Only if you make me scream your name more than once,” she teased.
“Anything for you.” He kicked their bedroom door closed and set about to keep his promise.

Cowboy Wrecked by D’Ann Lindun
There’s nothing Rayanne Whitfield wants more than a family to call her own. Top bull rider Luke Greer is badly injured in a riding accident, leaving him unable to sire children. Can these two find a way to build a life together?
Talking about kids, or the lack of them, was the last topic Luke wanted to cover. “It might surprise you to learn that I like Rayanne. A lot, in fact.”
Cody raised a brow. “Yeah?”
“Yeah. I do.” His declaration surprised him, but it was true. Rayanne was sweet, down-to-earth and not all googly-eyed over his celebrity. In fact, he doubted she’d ever heard of him before. Surprisingly, he appreciated her lack of fawning over him. Something he would have never believed in the past.
But, it didn’t matter how much he liked her because there was one big road block between them—kids. She made it painfully obvious she wanted them. And he was unable to provide any should they get serious. He sighed. “You’re right, Cody. She’s a nice lady. Too good for a rodeo bum like me.”
“You’re no bum,” Cody said. “But you’re not the settling down type either.” He took a long swing of beer. “Neither one of us are.”
“Nope. Footloose and fancy free, just the way we like it.” Depression settled around Luke as he stared at the mountain peaks fading away in the dark. Life sure had a funny way of reminding you not to get too big for your britches, or it would bring you down a few pegs. He changed the subject. “I think both these boys have a future with bull riding.”
