Love Lottery, Book 2
It’s a chance to start over for both of them…
Everleigh Girard always dates the wrong men at the worst times. The last debacle cost her a job and an apartment. But thanks to a crazy lottery win, she and her friends have a fresh start restoring a historic inn. Determined to make it a success, Everleigh swears off the dangers of dating entirely. Except…the town’s police chief is distractingly hot. So how much trouble could friends with benefits really cause?
Police chief Matt Halliday always puts protecting his town first. He’s blindsided when his house mysteriously burns down, and grateful his friends rent him a room at their inn while they finish renovations. It’s a great deal. Mostly. It’s hard to resist the very beautiful Everleigh. Love is permanently off the table for him—but lust is definitely on.
After their first red-hot kiss, keeping it casual is impossible. Can Everleigh teach Matt to trust again—especially when he’s keeping a secret that may put him and his new friends at risk?
The Cowboy Crashes a Wedding by Anne McAllister (Montana Born)
Release Date: May 6, 2021
Mr. No Commitments.
Well, that’s not entirely true. Cash Callahan has been committed to his rodeo bronc-riding career for years. But get married? No way. Cash isn’t opposed to marriage for other people. It’s just not for him—or for his long-time girl, Milly Malone—the one planning to marry another man. What on earth is she thinking?
Milly waited five years for Cash to pop the question. She’s given him enough rope to knit an interstate highway—and he keeps traveling right on down it. So she’s got a new beau, a wedding on Saturday, and no footloose, commitment-shy cowboy is going to mess things up.
A smart, clever woman like Milly should realize that marrying a boring number-cruncher is a mistake. But all Cash’s rational, sensible arguments don’t do a lick of good. There is only one way to prevent disaster—he’ll have to marry her himself!

Old sins cast long shadows…
When the bodies of a young, homeless girl and a girl who disappeared thirty years ago are found on the same day, residents in the historic city of York are aghast. It seems unlikely the two cases are related, and yet some of the same players knew both victims. As Detective Chief Inspector John Shadow and his eager new partner, Sergeant Jimmy Chang, dive into their investigation, they uncover a complicated web of pop stars, pub owners, shopkeepers and old school friends who each have something to hide.
John Shadow is a man of contradictions. A solitary figure who shuns company, but is a keen observer of all he meets. A lover of good food, but whose fridge is almost always empty. He prefers to work alone and is perpetually trying to dodge his partner, who’s full of energy, modern ideas and theories.
But as the two men gradually learn to work together to solve the case, it’s clear that the past is never as far away as you think.

But safety isn’t really an option when dealing with sleazy predators—or love…

Release Date: May 27, 2021
Three Sisters Ranch, Book 4
April Grayson is the responsible one in her family of wild, barrel racing rodeo stars. After years of keeping her sisters out of trouble, she’s finally earned some time to let loose. She indulges in a one-night stand with the cowboy she crushed on in high school. It’s as hot as it is memorable, but the next day she finds out Cole works for her new accounting client. He’s dead set against having one of the “Wild Grayson Sisters” working on Three Sisters Ranch.
Last Stand rodeo youth director Cole Lockwood loves horses, kids, and cowgirls—not necessarily in that order. Even though his night with April leaves him wanting more, his parents’ medical bills have him working 24/7. He’s tempted to go back to his professional gambling ways and enter a high stakes poker game, but April warns that’s a loser’s bet.
Cole and April strike a deal: she’ll teach him about managing his family’s finances if he helps her overcome her fear of horses and learn how to be a little more reckless. Can this cowboy make a cowgirl out of her?
