This boxed set contains the first three books in the Texas Trouble western romantic suspense series with hot cowboys, a dash of suspense and a lot of southern humor. The perfect recipe for Trouble.
MY KIND OF TROUBLE (Book 1)
When her father is injured, Cassie Bellamy has no choice but to return to her hometown to run the family ranch, but swears she’s going to lay low and avoid the lying, cheating polecat who ran her away ten years prior. Fate has other plans, however. As soon as she hits the outskirts of town, her truck breaks down and Cassie quickly finds out two things. Bad Boy Luke Matthews is still hotter than the Texas sun, but he’s not a bad boy anymore. He is now the town sheriff and seems to have an ax to grind with her. Cassie also realizes, engaged or not, she is not as over him as she wanted to be. That proves to be a problem when her business-partner fiance visits the ranch and his true intentions are revealed. Cassie has no doubt Luke can protect her when things turn ugly, but who will protect her heart from Luke?
THE TROUBLE WITH LOVE (Book 2) – Widowed Phoenix Detective Sabrina Roberts is burned out on life. Since her risk-taking, adrenaline-junkie cop husband was killed in an undercover assignment gone bad, she’s thrown herself into her job to forget about her grief. It helped her move beyond the grief, but also meant the only thing she had now was her job and a very lonely existence.
When a friend calls out of the blue to ask her to stand in her wedding in Texas, Sabrina grabs the lifeline with both hands, thinking a mental vacation in the country is just what she needs to re-evaluate her priorities. But when she gets to town, relaxation isn’t what she finds. The bride has picked up a stalker who is determined to stop the wedding and Sabrina is more determined to stop him. The only thing standing in the way of her doing that is a sexy and sexist cowboy sheriff who doesn’t think women should be in police work.
Sheriff Cole Jackson has another think coming, though, if he believes his attitude is going to stop her. Sabrina was about to show him up close and personal exactly what a highly-trained female police professional could do, so he better lead, follow or get out of her way.
Things heat up with the stalker, the bride is in extreme danger and Sabrina knows she needs help protecting her friend. She also knows there’s only one man in town to ask for backup–Cole Jackson. She had no doubt the handsome and highly-skilled sheriff would have her back, but what she didn’t know was if she could keep her vow never to fall in love with a lawman again.
DOUBLE THE TROUBLE (Book 3) – Professional rodeo roper Karlie Upton is as done with arrogant, testosterone-soaked cowboys as she is the rodeo. Worn out from battling with the abusive bullrider she’d just broken up with, she heads to her friend’s ranch to lick her wounds and hide out.
Karlie knows her ex will come looking for her, though, because not not only had she left him, she’d taken Sarge, a slack-jawed bulldog who netted him five-thousand dollars a month from his crazy grandpa’s estate. But she just couldn’t leave the dog behind to be abused like she’d been.
Her plan to lie low goes to hell fast, when the first person she meets in Bowie is the town’s handsome Chief Deputy, Gabe Kelly. She remains calm while he lectured her about speeding, even kept her cool when he wrote her a ticket she couldn’t afford. But when he threatened to impound her dog, things got ugly fast and the deputy quickly found out why she was known as the “Wild Child” of the rodeo circuit.
When her ex shows quicker than expected, then kidnaps her twin sister for leverage when she refuses to hand over Sarge, Karlie quickly regrets her impulsive nature. She needed Gabe Kelly’s help now, but why would he agree after what she’d done to him? Could she convince him to forgive her, or would her wild side cost she and her twin their lives this time?
