Carolyn Brown is celebrating the release of THE TROUBLE WITH TEXAS COWBOYS, Book 2 in the Burnt Book, Texas series ...

Can a girl ever have too many cowboys?

No sooner does pint-sized spitfire Jill Cleary set foot on Fiddle Creek Ranch than she finds herself in the middle of a hundred-year-old feud. Quaid Brennan and Tyrell Gallagher are both tall, handsome, and rich...and both are courting Jill to within an inch of her life. She's doing her best to give these feuding ranchers equal time-too bad it's dark-eyed Sawyer O'Donnell who makes her blood boil and her hormones hum...

... and offers an excerpt from THE TROUBLE WITH TEXAS COWBOYS:

Jill’s gaze started at Sawyer’s eyelashes, which totally fascinated her. How could a thick bunch of dark hair be so seductive? Finally she let her eyes travel past his nose and to his lips. The music in her head wasn’t haunting, but it wasn’t upbeat either. It was like the background music to an old gospel hymn, peaceful with the promise of something eternal.

When she got to his slightly parted lips, the chemistry between them reached a brand-new height. His knuckles moved to trace her jawline, and then his hand splayed out, palm resting on her cheek, pinky teasing her ear, the rest holding her neck steady as his lips closed over hers.

Jill cupped his cheeks in her hands and took the first step to deepen the kiss. Desire fanned the fires of arousal until they were both panting. He moved from her lips to her neck, nuzzling, tasting, driving her crazy.

With one tug, all the snaps of his shirt popped open, and she buried her face in the soft black hair covering his bare chest. He groaned, and she shifted her weight until she was sitting in his lap.

It should not happen, but it was going to. Plain and simple. She wanted Sawyer. She needed him, and not even an act of God was going to stop what they’d started.

  10. Holy cow, Carolyn! That snap popping scene just about did me in! Where's my fan? But my fave part of your writing is your humor. Reminds me of my growing up years on a ranch/farm and hearing my father and his two brothers and father talking and arguing amongst themselves. I had big ears and got a loadful from time to time! We laughed a lot in those days and enjoyed small town country living...and lots of cowboys. I think that's what first drew me to your stories. Anyway, thanks for your writing!

  11. Hey, Carolyn!! Your Burnt Book series is quickly becoming my favorite out of all of your series. Thanks!
