Olivia is a brilliant, attractive Chicago neurologist, married to her work, admired by her colleagues, and estranged from her family.

THE TROUBLE WITH TEXAS COWBOYS

THE TROUBLE WITH TEXAS COWBOYSCAROLYN BROWN

When Sawyer O'Donnell takes a ranch job on a whim, he lands smack dab in the middle of a Texas-sized feud! The Gallaghers and the Brennans are at each other's throats to woo the red-headed spitfire, Jill Cleary, and stake a claim for the Fiddle Creek Ranch.

Jill makes Sawyer's blood boil. They argue, they banter, but Sawyer soon goes from being driven crazy to crazy in love. Damned if he knows how that happened. But now that it has, how does he compete with two men that can give this cowgirl a lifestyle beyond her wildest dreams?

MY REVIEW:     This is a modern day Hatfield’s and McCoy’s story that involves the Gallagher’s and the Brennan’s.  Smack dab in the middle of their two properties with water rights wanted is Gladys Cleary.  A woman no body messes with.  You see her and her sister-in-law by marriage about in their 80’s but they have a lot of juice in Burnt Boot, Texas.     Polly Cleary owns “Polly’s Ba…

Mary Beth Caine has always been the good girl in her small Mississippi town. But when a big, protective, shamelessly sexy stranger offers to console her on the night of her disastrous engagement party, Mary Beth lets him—only to discover that Parr Weston also happens to be the older brother of her fiancĂ©, Bobby Joe.

Parr left Mississippi after years spent holding his family together. Now that he's back, he can't steal Bobby Joe's woman, and he sure can't offer Mary Beth the tidy happily-ever-after she deserves. But everything about the petite beauty—from her flame-gold hair to her artless sensuality—makes him crave her more. Love or lust, right or wrong, all he knows is that nothing has ever felt like this before, and walking away will be the hardest thing he's ever had to do.
MY REVIEW:     This was a love triangle to beat all love triangles.  You have your virgin bride to be Mary Beth Caine and her single wid…
