YOU'RE A LONG WAY FROM HOME, COWGIRL
On her own in the Big Apple, Jenna Jay Scroggs can handle herself when trouble arises. But when she tries to rescue a horse, the passionate do-gooder ends up on a runaway Central Park carriage ride with a hunky stranger. With his sexy drawl and well-worn Levis, Beauregard Cates is doing his darnedest to make Jenna homesick for the small western town she's spent years trying to forget. And it's working: She's dangerously close to falling head over boot heels for the rugged rodeo star with hair the color of moonshine.
Beau came to the big city to escape his past and live life to the fullest. Yet the leggy blonde with eyes as blue as a western sky causes a real hitch in his giddy-up. So when the well-meaning folks of Bramble plot to bring Jenna home, Beau will need to convince her that she won't ever get Texas out of her blood - or one good-time, ever-lovin' cowboy out of her heart.
Lane's sixth in her Deep in the Heart of Texas series (after Trouble in Texas) revisits Bramble, Tex., and the eccentric inhabitants of Miss Hattie's Henhouse, a whorehouse turned bed and breakfast. Aging "hen" Minnie Ladue asks Beauregard Cates to go to New York City and search for Jenna Jay Scroggs; Minnie thinks Jenna would be much happier home in Bramble and working at Miss Hattie's. Beau quickly learns that Jenna is an activist with a knack for making enemies and beating them up when they chase her down. When the good people of Bramble kidnap Jenna and Beau to bring them back to Texas, the lengthy drive gives plenty of time for sparks to fly. The antics of the ladies at Miss Hattie's add hilarity to the budding romance between Jenna and Beau in this sweetly improbable story of Texas charm and memorable characters.
