New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown delivers her special southern sass in this heartwarming tale about a second chance at true love.
Beau hasn’t got a lick of sense when it comes to women
Everything hunky rancher “Lucky” Beau Luckadeau touches turns to gold—except relationships. He’s gone and lost track of the woman of his dreams, and now he’s got himself tied up with a gold-digger...
Milli can mend a fence, pull a calf, or shoot a rattlesnake between the eyes
When spitfire Milli Torres shows up to help out at the Lazy Z ranch, she’s horrified to find that her nearest neighbor is Beau Luckadeau—the very man she’d hoped never to lay eyes on again. And if Beau ever figures out what really happened on that steamy Louisiana night when they first met, there’ll be the devil to pay...

Talk Cowboy to Me (Book 4)
In this first book of a new cowboy trilogy, prolific author Brown (To Trust) makes plenty of amateur mistakes. Milli Torres returns to her grandfather's Texas ranch only to find that the next door neighbor is the man who fathered her child during a one-night stand two years ago. Beau "Lucky" Luckadeau is too dense to connect the scrappy cowgirl to a woman he's convinced was only a drunken hallucination. When Beau finds out he's the father of Milli's daughter, the requisite romancing begins. Stock obstacles hinder the relationship, from Beau's gold-digging fianc e to Milli's overly dramatic five-hour flounce off before a country song convinces her to turn around, but the conventional outcome is never in doubt. Shifting points of view and flat characters make this a decidedly subpar addition to the genre.
Customer ReviewsSee All
The author writes well but the characters were not really likable. Milli is selfish up until midway through the book so she was annoying. Once she got over her selfishness she was okay. Beau is supposed to be a gentleman so he is willing to marry a woman he does not love simply because he gave his word; yet, he was not a gentleman when he caught Milli skinny dipping and was asked to avert his eyes while she got dressed.
The author, for some unknown reason, tells the story from everyone’s point of view. The point of view changes during conversations. The author does not wait for a new chapter to switch views or use asterisks. She simply begins a new view point during conversations which was weird.
I only finished the book because I started it.
Worth the Read
It's a sweet story but there were a few inconsistencies that bugged me. And it was a little far fetched during the scenes with the ex-girlfriend and ex-boyfriend but I must say there were fewer typos in this book than most of the free e-books. No hot sex scenes just a fairly decent story.
Not her best work
I usually like cowboy romances by this author but this one fell short. The main characters were so stubborn and I didnt like that Beau kept saying he was maling the biggest mistake of this life but prefered to live miserably then to break up. Not logical. I also didnt like how Milli said she was cheap just because she slept with one man. It was all a bit old fashioned for me.
