HARDWORKING HEROES IN BED AND OUT
Sometimes the second time around is even better than the first...
Cort Bellamy’s been avoiding his hometown of Crossroads, Georgia for too long. Who can blame him, when the small town is so thick with memories and everyone recalls that he let the love of his life slip away? However, his father’s summons for help on the family ranch can’t go unanswered much longer—and now he’s offering Cort a share.
Returning to hard work is expected…but he never thought he’d see HER again.
Joss Ellis hates returning to her hometown with her tail tucked, a failure in everyone’s eyes. Her aspirations of making a place for herself in the big city have left her defeated and more than a little depressed. But the minute she sees her rugged ex, her emotions take a detour to hot and bothered. It’s impossible not to run into each other. Even the secret fishing hole is a reminder of whispers and promises that never came true.
She’s the same beauty with a big heart that he can’t keep his hands off. He’s sexier and more untamed than ever. To bring them even closer, they’re fighting similar battles in life. While Cort’s determined to show her that happiness is right here in Crossroads, Joss isn’t convinced. All she’s certain of is that sleeping with her ex is a really bad idea…and she definitely won’t fall for him this time around.
When it comes to second chances, he won’t take no for an answer.
Kaoz Bellamy left Crossroads to ride the range. Upon his return, he finds his girlfriend gone—and she even took his custom beer tap. Worse than the fact he won’t be accessing his favorite brewski anytime soon is the realization she isn’t coming back.
Did the big jerk of a cowboy actually think Brielle would wait around pining for him, when he didn’t give any indication how he felt about her? No amount of rope in the county could tie her to that man again. But after one look at him, she finds that old flame still burns hot, his hands are just as perfectly rough…and he can still light her on fire with his kisses.
No matter how sexy and out of control their interludes are, Brielle will never fully trust Kaoz again. He claims he’ll do anything to win her back, even help out her pain-in-the-neck brother with his startup ranch. Kaoz never did see eye to eye with her family, but if he can help get her brother’s ranch on its feet, he might have a second chance with the little firecracker he loves. Working alongside him means ample opportunities to remind her how good he can make her feel too…and Brielle fears if she loses her heart to the determined cowboy this time, there might be no getting it back.
Liberty Baker is one step closer to happiness. After buying the ranch of her dreams to raise horses, she is also settling in to the small town of Crossroads. Everyone has been welcoming…except her neighbor, a hunky bachelor with a piercing, icy blue stare that haunts her more than she cares to admit.
However, her peace and quiet might not last long if her interfering, money-grabbing ex keeps trying to get his hands on her property.
Aidan is all about helping a friend in need, and he wants to help the stunning newcomer Liberty, all right—help her out of her clothes, into the hot tub...and then into his nice, comfy bed. It might take more than once to remind himself that women Liberty’s age are lookin’ for a big man to take care of them, but nobody’s sinking her hooks into him.
At least until he learns of the threats against her and that her land is on the line. No matter how hard he tries to resist, the solution’s staring him in the face.
There’s only one answer left.
It’s marry her and save her land or let it all burn.
Only one look from Liberty sets him aflame. And one touch from Aidan might start a wildfire of emotions neither want to face.
They were friends. Now they’re business rivals. Is there room for being lovers too?
Jada Ellis is ready to make some big life changes. When she leaves her job as caregiver in the Crossroads, Georgia nursing home and buys the local BBQ joint on a whim, everyone thinks she’s lost her mind, including her. Just as she starts to feel she’s found the perfect happy trail, she sees another kind of happy trail, leading across the road to her very buff and smoking-hot ex who’s fresh off the rodeo circuit and back in town.
Dominick Cole’s grandpa advised him to stay in the small town, settle down and raise a family here. But he didn’t listen and ran off to chase a golden buckle as a big-time rodeo star. But when “Savage” Cole returns to start up a barbecue restaurant, he couldn’t find a better—or sexier—rival in Jada. The town isn’t big enough for both of them—but a bed might be.
Smoldering friends to enemies to rivals to lovers romance never went down so good. Grab a sweet tea—or something harder—and binge on the latest book in the Crossroads series!
