Aloha to Heather Long and SEMPER FI COWBOY


A Leatherneck by any other name can still kick ass, which is just what retired United States Marine Corps Captain Tanner Wilks plans to do when he returns to his Texas family ranch to care for his ailing father. And nothing will stop him from achieving his mission—not even a lithe, brown-eyed town veterinarian who seems hell-bent on driving him wild.

Captain Tanner Wilks, honorably discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps, returns home to find his father struggling after his latest heart attack. Worse yet, Julia Heller—the sexy new girl in town that he once spent a hot night with—is the resident veterinarian who’s made a home for herself at Round Top ranch, and doesn’t seem to be in a rush to repeat their time together.

It falls on Tanner’s shoulders to take on the ranch and keep an eye on his father before he falls victim to another heart attack. But Julia doesn’t appreciate Tanner coming in or pursuing her. Even if he’s hot as hell and can make her quiver with just a look. Ousting her may give Tanner the leverage he needs to corral his father, but first he has to wrestle with his own heart.

USA Today bestselling author, Heather Long, likes long walks in the park, science fiction, superheroes, Marines, and men who aren’t douche bags. Her books are filled with heroes and heroines tangled in romance as hot as Texas summertime.

  1. My husband Sat with the DAV doing the Forget-me-not flower thing all day on Saturday. We headed for church, but stopped by the car dealer on the way. We love our Subaru Outback and it is in excellent condition. However on our last trip we realized age is creeping up on our driving. The lane warnings and automatic slowing down and stopping, as as blind spot warnings all would be really nice. They were having a sale and, really we just wanted to test drive to see how the new features worked. We now have a new car (NOT planned) and I can let it bug hm when he goes over the line. He will have a harder time arguing with the car. Today we went to our daughter's about an hour away for our granddaughter's birthday party. It was a week delayed because they have been busy getting their house ready to sell. It just hit her today that they will no longer have it and she is upset. Our son, remodeled it, did custom tile work, and custom forged ironwork for the railings around and down the stairway. I hate to see them sell, but she is quoting her job at the college and starting law school at Chapel Hill in August. It will be interesting.

  2. Besides shopping we had a great time at our neighbor's's now fun being the oldest people there!!!

  3. Unfortunately, I worked all weekend. I can't wait for my next day off to just relax and do nothing.

  4. We're retired so weekends always fun! No 'back to work Mondays' for us!

  5. We went to a minor league baseball game with my in-laws as a delayed part 2 of father's day. It was great since a cold front came through and the temps were below 90!

  6. Spent the weekend watching all the show I had saved up on the recorder.

  7. My mom's been having some health problems so most things are on hold right now.

  8. didn't really do much last weekend other than church and reading
