It's a battle of the sexes like never before in this delightfully funny, escapist cowboy romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carolyn Brown!
She's a self-made city girl…He's as intoxicating as can be
High-powered career woman Austin Lanier suddenly finds herself saddled with an inherited watermelon farm deep in the Oklahoma countryside. She's determined to sell the farm, until her drop-dead sexy new neighbor Rye O'Donnell shows up. Maybe there's time for a little cowboy love after all…
Rancher Rye O'Donnell thinks he's going to get a good deal on his dream property—until he meets the fiery new owner. Rye is knocked sideways when he realizes that not only is Granny Lanier's city-slicker granddaughter a savvy businesswoman, she's also sexy as hell.
Suddenly Rye is a whole lot less interested in real estate and a whole lot more focused on getting Austin to set aside her stiletto heels and see just how much fun a little fling on the farm can be.

In the first of the Spikes & Spurs romance series, Brown (the Honky Tonk romances) sets up immediate physical attraction between stiletto-wearing career-minded Austin Lanier, who's come to tiny Terral, Okla., to scatter her grandma's ashes, and Rye O'Donnell, a neighboring cattle rancher who supplies bulls for the rodeo circuit. Taking a two-week leave from her oil executive job in Tulsa so she can settle the estate, Austin learns she's inherited Granny's watermelon farm and winery, and she falls right into country ways: wearing overalls, planting seeds, and snacking on rattlesnake. Austin and Rye get along brilliantly from the start; the only real conflict comes from Austin's struggle to choose between high-powered city life and the charming rodeos, country songs, quirky senior citizens, and billowing dust of Terral.
I absolutely loved this book. I’m from this area of Oklahoma so I enjoyed getting to read about things I knew first hand and have experienced myself! Definitely a good read!
