FREE from January 3 – 7. Desperate circumstances called for bold action. Lily couldn’t resist the invitation to masquerade as her friend Emma to escape an undesired courtship. Her ruse backfires when she falls in love with Emma’s intended. How could she possibly tell him her real identity? This deceit has also put her life in danger. Gus finally finds her working in a saloon and turns his back on her. Now her main objective is to win him back— no matter what it takes. A sizzling clean romance.
A man hiding from his past and a woman running from hers.
Two people from different worlds who know one another only from what they have shared with one another in Facebook messages. They’ve never heard the other’s voice, or seen a photo.
Analise Becke writes romance with western heroes, men she has dreamed up by combining the looks of her favorite western actor with the qualities she discovers in her online chats with the Texas rancher, Riley Morgan. She’s cooked up more than a few fantasies about Riley over the last year, but knows them for what they are — fantasies of a lonely woman whose marriage is falling apart.
Riley looks forward to the online chats more than he is willing to admit but has never considered asking what she looks like. She’s just an online friend. Yeah, they have a connection, but certainly not enough to even consider that a face-to-face meeting will spark anything other than a solidification of their friendship.
Riley Morgan and Analise Becke are in for a big surprise – actually a series of surprises. Their lives are about to be turned upside down as passion and danger come to Cotton Creek, Texas.
And they say nothing ever happens in Cotton Creek.
His family and friends referred to him as a “rounder” because when it came to the ladies, Jayce (rhymes with Chase) Weathers, definitely gets around. He’s the hot bad boy who knows how to give a woman a night of wild pleasure, some laughs and leaves them wanting more and chasing after him.
Not that they’re likely to catch him. Jayce isn’t opposed to settling down, he just hasn’t met the right woman — if she even exists. He’s starting to wonder.
And then Billy Sweet shows up at the Honky Tonk Angels bar where Jayce is finishing the remodel on the top floor, and he has with him a woman and her two year old daughter. Callie and Lily Williams. Callie brings out something in Jayce. Something besides passion and lust. He wants to be her hero.
When Callie’s car ran out of gas just outside of Cotton Creek, she never expected to be rescued. Or to be offered a job and a place for her and Lily to stay. And she sure didn’t except to meet a man that made her dream of things she couldn’t have – love everylasting, a family and a home. But Jayce Weathers makes her dream of those thigns and a whole lot more.
They might both be dreaming the same thing. The problem is, there’s someone who doesn’t want that dream to come true for Callie, someone who just might be willing to do anything to make sure her dreams don’t come true.
Yep, things are heating up again in Cotton Creek.
L.A. cop, Jordan Masters Ryan has a problem. Her normal method of meeting a crisis head-on and taking it down won’t work. Not this time. Not when fate is her adversary. Having kept her from the man she thought she’d always marry, the same fickle fate took away the man she eventually did. Thrown back into the path of her first love, she finds hers is not the only heart fate has damaged.
Widower and software CEO, Cole McCall fills his days with computer codes and his free time working the family’s cattle ranch. Blaming himself for his wife’s death, he’s become hard and bitter. When his visiting former neighbor sets out to delete the firewall around his heart, he discovers there’s no protection against the Jordan virus. Though she understands his pain and reawakens his soul, will it be enough for Cole to overcome his past and embrace their fated hearts?

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t give up! Write. Write. Write. Seek and learn from constructive criticism.
It’s all my mother’s fault.
She read to me before I could read and opened up that magical world where I still reside today. Then came television and movies. Now I had three avenues to feed my imagination…and boy could I eat!
As you no doubt figured out, this lead to my writing career. After several starts in between having a son, twin sons then a daughter, I didn’t get serious until my youngest child entered 1st grade. Now, I’m multi-published in e-Book and print with several publishers and a ton of voices in my head.
