How do you heal a broken heart?

After one injury too many, Cade Callahan gave up the rodeo for a simpler life working at his cousin’s horse rescue ranch. But his life turns upside down when his estranged daughter is placed in his custody after a tragic car accident. Wanting nothing to do with her father, thirteen-year-old Allie struggles to adjust to her new life.

Newly single and living out of her mother’s basement, physical therapist Nora Fisher doesn’t think twice about taking a job as a traveling therapist for Cade’s daughter.

Now both in way over their heads, can Cade and Nora find a way to help Allie, and trust in the attraction building between them?

Cowboy Fire by Kim Redford

Posted January 20, 2022 by Marsha in Modern Western Romance, NetGalley, Series, Sexual Content, Small Town Romance, Sourcebooks Casablanca / 0 Comments

I came to Wildcat Bluff County for one reason only: to convince hunky Mr. July from the Wildcat Bluff Fire Rescue annual calendar to be the face—and body—of my new online dating service. Easy, right? I had no idea he’d be so difficult. Or that he’d end up being my new landlord… He might think he has the upper hand, but I don’t give up so easily.

Kemp Lander, a.k.a. Mr. July, says he wants nothing to do with my app or with me. And he seems particularly annoyed to discover I wasn’t exactly honest in my rental agreement. I’m nowhere near the full-fledged cowgirl I claimed to be. But I can learn, and sometimes a girl has to fudge the rules a little to get what she needs. And I definitely need this cowboy…

Cowboy Heat Wave by Kim Redford

Posted January 7, 2022 by Marsha in Modern Western Romance, NetGalley, Series, Sexual Content, Small Town Romance, Sourcebooks Casablanca / 0 Comments

He drank her in as if dying of thirst but not touching her with anything more than his heated gaze.
She held out her hand.
He clasped it.
And they caught fire.

Audrey Oakes is in Wildcat Bluff County on a mission. She has a lead on the legendary Hallelujah Ranch bootlegger gold—money that would cover the cost of her grandmother’s life-saving medical treatment—but she hadn’t counted on following it straight into a group of wild horse rustlers. Audrey has no choice but to speed to the closest refuge and hide, only to be confronted by a gun-toting, hot-blooded cowboy.

It might only be a coincidence that Audrey appears on firefighter Cole Murphy’s doorstep just as the rustlers race past his ranch. But Cole isn’t about to let anything, or anyone, distract him from catching the wild mustang thieves—no matter how red-hot his connection to her is. And if she is part of the rustler ring, all the more reason to keep a very close eye on her.
