Books – Burlap and Barbed Wire Series – Cowboy Romance

Dear Readers: You first saw Alyssa Jefferson in The Lake Chelan Series in the book The Rancher’s Lady. In that book she was the precocious eight year old matchmaker for her father and her third grade teacher.  Well now Alyssa is all grown up and ready for her own story!

A Cowboy for Alyssa (Book 1)

Alyssa Jefferson is ready to start her veterinary internship at the Rockin’ K ranch, in the beautiful Colorado Rockies, where she will be assisting with the births of over three hundred pregnant cows. It’s a dream come true, and she’s so excited the joy is oozing from her. As icing on the cake, it appears the brothers that own the ranch are sexy as can be. A few months with some eye candy, is just what the doctor ordered.

Beau Kipling sees the sweet young thing coming for her riding lesson, and feels a kick to his gut. What is this hot young woman doing dating a man old enough to be her father? He’s so ticked off, he can’t stop himself from being an ass to her. He’s never, in his whole life, felt the instant attraction he feels for this female, and she’s some old guys arm candy.

When the truth is revealed, that Alyssa is his intern for the spring, and not the sheriff’s new girlfriend, Beau knows he’s blown it. And he can’t even explain why he was so mean. No woman wants to hear a guy thought she was a gold digger. Now they must work together all spring. Can he convince her to give him a second chance?

Taming Adam (book 2)

There are five brothers. Each one of them have killer good looks. One is engaged to her best friend. That leaves four to flirt with, four hot men, so why does she only have eyes for the oldest grumpiest one in the bunch. Rachel Reardon has to question her own sanity when she’s enthralled with a man she can hardly stand to speak to. A first-class jerk and sexy as sin. 

Adam Kipling can’t believe his bad luck when his soon-to-be sister-in-law’s best friend arrives. She is smoking hot and too damn young for him. He has responsibilities as the oldest sibling and they do not include flirting with young women. 

There isn’t enough land on this Colorado ranch to keep them far enough apart. An explosion of some sort is inevitable.

Katie Jackson has known Chase since first grade, she’s had a crush on him since middle school, and loved him since, well, probably forever.

Roping Cade (book 4)

Summer Attwood has been hiding in baggy clothes and ugly glasses for nearly ten years. When the town hottie asks her to be his faux girl-friend for a couple of weeks she decides it’s time to put away the disguise and shine.

Cade Kipling can’t believe the beautiful woman that emerges from the cocoon of overalls and over sized glasses. If he wasn’t dead set on taking a few months to get his head on straight, after his long time abusive girl-friend dumped him, he’d be after Summer in a heartbeat.

Two weeks of dating will either kill them or change their lives forever.

But she is no passive little miss to let someone else determine her future.

Drew Kipling rides to the rescue of the pretty woman who needs to get warm and have her injuries taken care of. When she can’t remember her name, he vows to protect her until she knows who she can trust.

What will they find at the pageant? More trouble or the love of a lifetime? Maybe both. Join Lily and the Kipling family as they take New York City by storm and show them the cowboy way is the only way to catch a scoundrel.

Emma’s Rodeo Cowboy (book 6)

He’s never even kissed the woman, but her son is clearly, without a doubt, his.

Zach McCoy has been on the rodeo circuit for six years and is making a damn fine living at it. When he comes home, for the first time, to be in his best friend’s wedding he’s got one helluva surprise waiting for him in the shape of a five-year old boy who is his spitting image.

Emma Kipling took matters into her own hands six years ago, before the man she was crazy about took off to join the rodeo. She didn’t care one bit that he was two years older and she was still in high school, she wanted one night with him before he left to compete in a dangerous sport. When he didn’t come back after she found herself pregnant she knew he had abandoned her and her son.

Now he’s back for her brother’s wedding, and by the look on his face, sparks are going to fly. She’s ready and willing to go toe to toe with him and give him a piece of her mind.
