Author: Mary J. McCoy-Dressel

Mary's writing consists of sensual contemporary western romance with strong family ties, an occasional paranormal romance, and dramatic romantic fiction.

Her dramatic novels are emotional and compelling and the characters don't have an easy time getting what they want, but their reward is sexy and sweet.

In a lighter style Mary prefers to write more romantic and sensual love stories without all the conflict and drama.

Rancher Jase Carlson doesn't understand the ache in the hollow of his chest, since his ex-wife ripped his heart out. She doesn't follow the court rules where his children are concerned, making him even more pissed off. Harboring a bad attitude, he wishes he wasn't a gentleman when he comes to the aid of a quick-tempered, sexy blonde. He can't allow her tight jeans and sweet smile to sway him, even after he's coerced into spending time alone with her. Fighting the torturous battle going on within his own mind and body, he can either deal with it--or succumb to the woman who appears to be everything he didn't know he needed.

In an attempt to save her rebellious teen sister from herself--as her guardian, Brenna Page leaves everything behind and moves to Canyon Junction, Arizona. When she unexpectedly meets a hot-headed cowboy with intense blue eyes and muscles to die for, the first thing she wants to do is get away. Since she can't seem to shake him, Brenna wonders if that same grudge-filled cowboy with an attitude is someone worth taking on. But still dealing with painful memories, and a sister who wants nothing to do with Arizona, the last thing she needs right now is a horse ranching cowboy interfering.

One wrong turn. Two broken families. Brought together by chance...and need.

When Italian class meets bull rider rowdy, you're bound to get sparks...or sizzle!

Bull rider Caulder McCutchen wants to start living again. Maybe find romance in the distant future. But this year he has a good chance of winning the coveted buckle, knowing he has to ride harder, go bigger, or go home. Winning consumes him, but it doesn't take away the pain from a tremendous loss less than two years ago.

On a whim, he hires a sexy photographer to travel the bull riding circuit with him for a season. A little extra publicity can't hurt, and she's easy on the eyes.

Velia Armano, a former travel photographer, is starting a new life alone. She recently opened her own photography business in Tucson, Arizona. She's known the good life growing up in a well-to-do Italian family surrounded with love. Now she's on her own and away from her family--the price she has to pay to escape from her abusive ex-husband's torment.

Six months into her well-ordered life alone, a hunky cowboy saunters in with his howdy, ma'am and flame blue eyes offering a job any photographer would find hard to refuse.

While traveling the bull riding circuit together, they find themselves passionately attracted to each other. They'll have to decide if they can overcome their obstacles and give in to a "happily ever after", or return to their self-appointed exiles.

When the season ends, who wins the real prize?
