Guest Post and Giveaway: Reckless in Texas by Kari Lynn Dell

 

This morning I have a guest post from Kari Lynn Dell, as well as a chance for you to win her new release Reckless in Texas!

What am I going to do on book release day? by Kari Lynn Dell

People ask me all the time. They have visions of champagne corks popping and confetti flying when the curtains swing back to reveal stacks of the shiny new book in all its grandeur as the smartly-dressed crowd cheers.

And it’s exactly like that, if you replace the champagne with a mug of tea, and the smartly dressed crowd with me, my cat and Max the Cowdog slouched around my laptop.

The boring truth is, for most of us release day is a virtual event and all the excitement happens online, chatting with readers via blog tours and Facebook parties and getting high fives from writer friends who know exactly how exciting/terrifying this moment is, and understand completely why you can’t decide whether to run outside and dance barefoot on the lawn or huddle in a blanket fort behind the couch. Either way I can show up in my pajamas and I don’t have to put on makeup, but it’s sort of a bummer that I don’t get to wear my truly awesome new shoes.

Review: Texas Rebels: Jude by Linda Warren

 

May Contain Spoilers

I try to read all of the American Romances as soon as the library receives them.  I don’t usually read the book descriptions before I check them out; they are automatically added to my library basket.  While not every one is a success for me, I enjoy a majority of them.  Texas Rebels: Jude had a couple rocky issues, but overall, I did enjoy my first Linda Warren read, too.

Review: One Rodeo Season by Sarah M Anderson

May Contain Spoilers

I am a big fan of Anderson’s writing, so I try to read her books as soon as they are released.  I loved Ian, but Lacy – I didn’t have such warm feelings for.  She loudly, and repeatedly, insists she doesn’t need anyone’s help, despite the fact that she so obviously does.  She grated constantly on my nerves.  Ian, on the other hand, made mistakes when he was younger, and strove constantly to be a better person.  This is somewhat of a challenge, because of his hot temper, but he tries oh, so hard, for the entire book.

Review: Falling for the Rancher by Tanya Michaels @HarlequinBooks

 

May Contain Spoilers

I don’t know what the problem is, but I have been having one heck of a hard time becoming engaged in any book I pick up.  At times like this, I always reach for a Harlequin.  They are like palette cleansers for me, and help to recharge my reading mojo.  I did enjoy Falling for the Rancher, but at times I was bored and felt that the plot didn’t move swiftly enough to hold my attention.  Jarrett also burned too hot and then cold for my tastes, due to his guilt about his sister’s accident.

Review: The Rancher’s Marriage Pact by Kristi Gold

May Contain Spoilers

When it comes to Harlequins, I will read any of their series romances, and I especially can’t get enough of ranchers, cowboys, or rodeo stories.  The Rancher’s Marriage Pact at least delivered a rancher.  The cover is beautiful, and it’s the first book in Kristi Gold’s Texas Extreme series.  So I clicked the Borrow button at the library and hoped for the best.

Review: Her Sexy Vegas Cowboy by Ali Olson

May Contain Spoilers

I love me my cowboy books, so when I saw Her Sexy Vegas Cowboy at the library, I knew it must be mine.  I’ll admit straight up that the Blaze line isn’t one of my favorites.  I far prefer Harlequin’s Desire line, though the American Romance series is my absolute favorite.  However, I was in the mood for a quick read, Vegas is one of my favorite vacation retreats, and cowboys?  Yeah, I thought I’d give this a spin.
