TWO FULL BOOKS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE--AN ALL-NEW CAROLYN BROWN BOOK PLUS HOMETOWN COWBOY BY SARA RICHARDSON
A secret baby brings a second chance for love. Carlene Varner's homecoming isn't exactly going according to plan. She thought she'd have some time to adjust before introducing her daughter to Jace Dawson, the father her little girl has never known. Instead, within days of her arrival, her house burns down and she and Tilly have no choice but to move in with the sexy cowboy himself at the Prairie Rose ranch. Now the whole Dawson clan-heck, the whole town of Happy-is all up in their business.
Jace has dealt with stubborn bulls and bucking broncos-but being a dad? He is so not ready for this... Yet the more time he spends with Carlene and little Tilly, the harder it is to imagine life without them. Now he just has to convince Carlene that he's the real deal-and hope that this time she's here to stay.
HOMETOWN COWBOY by Sara Richardson Outrageously handsome Lance Cortez is practically a living legend in Colorado, as famous for riding bulls as he is for breaking hearts. What would a big-time cowboy star like him see in a small-town veterinarian who wears glasses, rescues animals, and cries when watching rom-coms? Turns out, plenty.
More in the Happy, Texas, series by Carolyn Brown: Toughest Cowboy in Texas Long, Tall Cowboy Christmas
Despite the hackneyed secret-child premise, this third and final Happy, Texas contemporary (after Long, Tall Cowboy Christmas) has wonderfully charming characters. When Carlene Varner left Happy, Tex., a week after graduating high school, she took more than Jace Dawson's heart she took his baby. Believing neither of them was ready for marriage, Carlene kept her pregnancy a secret. After she returns to the small town with her intelligent, headstrong nine-year-old daughter, Tilly, in tow, it doesn't take long for the townsfolk, or Jace, to know she's his, thanks to the strong family resemblance. Jace is angry and confused, and also aware that he's never gotten over Carlene. He was raised in a tight-knit family and he's always been taught to do the right thing. Being a father to Tilly means also spending time with Carlene, and the chemistry between the two is as strong as ever. Carlene fears that Jace only wants to be with her out of obligation to Tilly, so Jace has to work overtime to prove his love. The lovers are aided by the wisdom and love of Jace's family and Carlene's sister. This sweet, heartwarming romance is sure to increase Brown's fan base.
