#GiveAway MILLION DOLLAR COWBOY By Lori Wilde


MILLION DOLLAR COWBOY
Cupid, Texas #5
By Lori Wilde


New York Times Bestselling Author Lori Wilde returns to Cupid, Texas with a heartwarming story of a cowboy who comes home to the family ranch for a wedding filled with surprises…

The illegitimate son of a Texas ranching dynasty, Ridge Lockhart left home ten years ago with one goal: to become more successful than the father who never accepted him.

Mission accomplished, but now he’s back at the Silver Feather Ranch for a wedding—three days of best man duty until he can hightail it out. Then he spies Kaia Alzate, and suddenly leaving isn’t quite so appealing.

Kaia Alzate grew up the daughter of the ranch foreman, servants to the mighty Lockharts in the mansion. Back then, she followed Ridge around like a puppy. Now, she’s fighting the attraction she feels for this sexy CEO. She’s determined not to make a big mistake—but when Ridge takes her in his arms she’s stunned…could he be the man she’s waited for all along?

Excerpt: 

At this distance, with the width of the landing strip between them, he hadn’t gotten a clear view of her face, but his initial impression was that she was more pretty than beautiful, while her body language exuded a come-sit-by-me friendliness that drew him. She was curvy enough to let him know that she enjoyed a good splurge meal now and again, but she was also healthy and fit. Her skin was tan and supple, her eyes soft and bright, her teeth straight and white. She took good care of herself.
But it was the way she carried herself that totally wrecked him. Confidence mixed with humility. She had an authentic stride full of wholehearted openness. The last person he’d known who’d possessed that special combo was Archer Alzate’s kid sister, Kaia.
He hadn’t seen Kaia face-to-face since she was sixteen and she had attended his and Archer’s graduation from the University of Texas. But two years ago, Archer called him to tell him that while working on her doctorate in veterinarian medicine at Texas A&M, Kaia had been in a terrible car accident and fractured her pelvis. Ridge had flown straight to College Station to see her only to discover she was in a medically induced coma.
The waiting room had been packed with her family and friends, and no one noticed him standing in the doorway. After so much time away he’d felt awkward and misplaced, an outsider. Not wanting to turn Kaia’s accident into a stage for his return, he’d slipped quietly away without speaking to the family. But later he texted Archer to meet him in the parking lot to get an update on Kaia’s condition. Archer gave him the rundown, including the fact Kaia had such a high medical deductible he didn’t know how she was ever going to afford to finish her degree.
Once Ridge knew she was stable and going to pull through, he went to the business office, anonymously paid the fifteen-thousand-dollar deductible toward her medical bills, and swore Archer to secrecy.
Later, when she was out of the coma, he sent flowers and a card and he’d gotten back a kind thankyou note, and their correspondence had ended there. Archer kept his word and Kaia never knew Ridge had come to see her or that he was the one who paid her deductible.
Ridge slipped off his sunglasses for a clearer look at the provocative woman. From the back seat of the Tundra, she extracted an oversized present wrapped in gold foil. The package was so big and the backseat so small. How she’d managed to cram it in?
She tossed her head, a triumphant smile on her face, and turned in his direction. Their gazes met across an empty desert.
For a split second, his heart stopped.
Her obsidian eyes arrested him, a mysterious color that suggested hot summer nights and low, deep-throated whispers. Ripples of recognition jolted his nervous system, both shocking and exhilarating. He knew her.
Kaia Alzate.
Freakadilly circus, he’d been lusting after little Kaia Alzate. Hot for the girl he’d once dubbed the Braterminator.
Ridge coolly slipped his sunglasses back down over his eyes. She’d pestered the hell out of him and Archer when they were kids. Tagging along everywhere they went, tattling if they stepped out of line, and generally being a run-of-the-mill pain-in-the-ass. He might have hidden his eyes from her, but he couldn’t hide the goose bumps spreading over his skin, pushing an insistent heat into his bloodstream as he watched her from behind the safety of the polarized lenses of his aviator Ray-Bans.
Her snapping black eyes sparkled with glee, as an enthusiastic grin split her mouth wide. She had recognized him too, and she looked more than happy to see him.
His gut dove the way it did whenever he’d practiced a stall in pilot training, spinning, whirling, and hurtling headlong toward the earth.
Thank God her hands were full because he had the distinct impression that if she’d been empty-handed, she would have come flying across the tarmac to hug the stuffing out of him.
He didn’t mean to do it, told himself he wasn’t going to do it, but damn if he couldn’t help sliding his gaze over her body. After all, she had no idea what his eyes were doing behind the sunglasses.
Thank you, Ray-Bans.
She moved toward him, arms strapped around the oversized present. Stopped. Cast a glance over her shoulder at the main house. Swung her gaze back to him. She wanted to come over, but didn’t seem to know what to do with the package.
He kept his face unreadable, but gave her a respectful nod. I see you, but no need to rush or gush or make a fuss.
Deliberately, he turned away, telling himself it was to chalk the plane’s tires, and it had nothing to do with the fact his chest was tight and his head fuzzy. And a smile he could not stop was pushing across his face.
He was happy to see her too. So happy it freaked him out.
Once the chalks were in place, and he reined in his galloping pulse, Ridge raised his head, ready to dish up a slick greeting.
But she was gone.
Yay. Great. Perfect. He’d avoided her exuberant hug. Good work.
Why then, did he feel so bummed?

By Jaye Raymee
About the Book: 
Claire O’Neil grew up hearing stories from her grandmother’s Irish homeland.  Her grandmother seemed to be personally acquainted with exotic fairies, mischievous pixies, even powerfully seductive shape-shifters.  On the eve of the older woman’s funeral, Claire is visited again by strangely erotic dreams which began on her sixteenth birthday, dreams which leave her breathless and aroused by the shadowy presence of a mysterious stranger.  At the funeral itself, she is approached by a foreigner who carries a letter from her grandmother.  Following the instructions in the letter, Claire is whisked away to Ireland to discover the legacy left behind by her grandmother.

 Once in the Emerald Isle Claire is stunned to learn that her grandmother’s stories were real: the Dubh Sidhe and the Four Fey Courts of Dublin do exist.   More shockingly, an ancient prophecy has tied their fate to hers. At a chance encounter Claire comes face-to-face with the stranger from her dreams, and breathless doesn’t begin to describe the effect he has on her!  As she finds herself caught between rivals for leadership of the shape-shifters, Claire is kidnapped and held in seclusion by the mysterious stranger’s brother as part of their battle for leadership of the their family.  Only Claire can help the mysterious stranger to save himself and his clan from losing their power forever.  If she chooses to…and if she can accept that passion can take many forms.

#GiveAway A SMALL-TOWN BRIDE By Hope Ramsay

A SMALL-TOWN BRIDE 
Series: Chapel of Love, #2
By Hope Ramsay

Q&A with Hope Ramsay:

Q: What are you currently working on? 
A: I’m working on the revisions to Here Comes the Bride, the third book in the Chapel of Love series.  I’m almost finished with this book, which is scheduled to be published in August.  It’s a fun book about a jilted bride and the best man who captures her broken heart. 

Q:  Do you have a favorite snack that like to munch on while writing? If so would you mind sharing what it is with us? 
A: I’m not much of a muncher when I’m writing.  But I can tell you that I am living proof that caffeine is an author’s most important muse.  If I’m not properly caffeinated I simply can’t write.  So I always have a Dr. Pepper within easy reach.

Q: When you are not busy writing wonderful stories to keep us lucky readers entertained, what do you like to do? Do you have a hobby? 
A: I love to knit.  In fact I love knitting so much that I’ve given myself knitter’s elbow, which is exactly the same as tennis elbow.  I stink at playing tennis, by the way.  While I’m waiting for my elbow to heel, I’ve been doing counted cross stitch. But, honestly, I can’t wait to get back to knitting.  I find it so relaxing.

Q: Do you have a favorite background noise you like to having going while you write (TV, Music, kids playing)? 
A: Most of the time I write in a quiet room.  But I do put together a playlist of songs and music for every book that I write.  I will listen to these songs while I’m driving around doing errands or when I’m exercising.  And sometimes, when I’m writing a very emotional scene I might listen to one song on the playlist over and over again.  I find that music helps me get in touch with emotions. 

Q: Thanks for visiting. It has been a pleasure having you visit today. Can you think of anything else you would like to share with us today? 
A:  I’d like to send all my readers a heartfelt thank you.  When you pick up one of my books you give life to the characters I’ve created.  The people in my books may not live in the real world but they do exist.  And all it takes is a reader to breath live into them. 

 ABOUT THE BOOK:

The second book in USA Today bestselling author Hope Ramsay's Chapel of Love contemporary romance series about a small-town wedding chapel is perfect for fans of Debbie Macomber, Robyn Carr, and Sherryl Woods.

Now that she's cut off from the family fortune, her first challenge is to fight her attraction to her handsome new boss.

When Amy shows up looking for work with his landscaping crew, Dusty McNeil thinks there's no way such a pampered princess will ever get her hands dirty.

~*~*~*~*~*~
ABOUT THE BOOK:  
http://static.harpercollins.com/harperimages/Isbn/large/4/9780062469854.jpgNew York Times and USA Today bestselling author LAURA LEE GUHRKE returns with the exciting new DEAR LADY TRUE LOVE series.  At the center of the first installment, THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE AND DUKES (on sale March 28, 2017; ISBN 9780062469854; $7.99) is the tempestuous and independent Irene Deverill. 
A thoroughly contemporary heroine, Irene is a rare woman for her time. A suffragette and champion of higher education for women, she is also the publisher of a scandalous newspaper column which dispenses practical wisdom about the most impractical of matters—love. Maintaining a hidden identity is essential to the success of the Dear Lady True Love column. 
Duke Torquil’s mother has set the ton a-titter by falling in love with Foscarelli, an Italian painter of limited means. When his mother writes to Lady True Love and is advised to elope with her lover, to Henry’s horror she actually takes up the suggestion. 
When Henry finally tracks down the author of the reckless advice, and discovers the beautiful, vivacious Irene Deverill, he is instantly disarmed.  One scandal gives way to another for the alluring pair, equaling more fodder for the high society rumor mill.  But with a shot of Cupid’s arrow, perhaps Irene will rise to the social heights for which she seems destined, and maybe Duke Torquil will put family happiness above social perfection, for after all—with love, anything’s possible. 
In THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE AND DUKES, the first installment in the DEAR LADY TRUE LOVE series, LAURA LEE GUHRKE has crafted another intriguing romance that will have both ardent fans and newcomers quickly turning the page.

About the Author:

Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx. Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind to try something new—and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn’t know they’d been missing.
