She’s trading in city life for open air and wide-open spaces
Kara Montgomery didn’t plan on being a runaway bride but even years of bowing to her parents' expectations can't bring her to marry a man she doesn't love. Choosing to take her planned vacation doing things she's always dreamed of, Kara heads to the closest rodeo.
Finding a woman in his stock trailer isn't uncommon for tie-down roper Cam Granger. Finding one holding a wedding dress is. When Cam learns of Kara's desire to experience life on a ranch, he does something he's never done before; he takes a woman home.
Working with Cam feeds her soul in the way her career never did; Kara feels like she truly belongs.
Hot kisses and passionate lovemaking dispel the doubts crowding in Cam's head, but, when their worlds collide, he wonders if a woman of her class and means could ever be happy with a cowboy. While Cam fears tying Kara down might not be a possibility after all, Kara is faced with a heart-wrenching ultimatum that is sure to leave her shattered.
Beattie's electric third Tangled Up in Texas romance (after Cowboy True) matches a runaway bride with a playboy cowboy. Kara Montgomery, a sophisticated Austin, Tex., accountant, leaves the fianc she isn't sure she loves at the altar and heads to the rodeo, stashing her dress in a horse trailer and taking her mind off her troubles with a burger and a beer. When Cam Granger, a gorgeous but cocky horse trainer and rodeo star, stumbles on Kara retrieving her dress from his trailer, he's instantly taken with the runaway bride and invites Kara to plan her next steps from his family's scenic working ranch, the Diamond G. Cam's expecting just another short-term, no-strings-attached lust fest but surprises himself by developing feelings. For her part, Kara falls first for the wide-open spaces of Texas Hill Country, then for Cam. But when reality comes knocking in the form of Kara's controlling parents and justifiably bitter fianc , the fledgling relationship might not survive. The chemistry between the leads is irresistible, with both hero and heroine having surprising depths, and Kara's overbearing parents are well shaded, making for formidable obstacles to her happiness. This hot romance is sure to melt hearts.
Oh so good!!! This series is fast becoming one of my favourites. Author Michelle Beattie keeps me hanging on as the stories unfold. Each book brings us further & further into the Granger family that’s been torn apart by illness, loss, grief & anger but is slowly coming back together. The Montgomery family’s loss turned into something although different, with expectations put on Kara that caused her pain & loss & grief in many ways. Running from a wedding that never should’ve been planned & a life she didn’t want, Kara sets off to see if her memories & dreams can be one in the same. Cam & Kara were definitely meant to be together & I enjoyed watching them realize that all it took was a week for them to fall hard. They were extremely sexy together & a boldness & change seemed to come to life in Kara when Cam was around & Cam seemed more relaxed & calm with Kara in his life. The angst was dialled up high with the tension between Kara & her parents & an ultimatum thrown at her. This book had me running through many emotions, swooning from the heat created by Cam & Kara, sadness at the grief Cam & Kara each dealt with, anger at decisions made for Kara’s life & happiness for Cam & Kara as they move forward with their life. Definitely recommend. Thank you to Tule publishing for letting me read this ARC for an honest review.
