Take Me Home, Cowboy by Krista Ames
Wanna be just for a little while a feisty blonde who won't take cow-patties from any long, tall man in a wide-brimmed hat and boots? Saddle up, cowgirl!
Ally Kincaid returns to Freewill, Wyoming, to see her father after a two year absence. Anticipating a quiet family reunion, she finds herself butting heads with her father’s foreman instead. The man’s arrogance and sexy drawl push all her buttons, making her wonder what he’s hiding beneath his cowboy swagger. Matt Gentry walked away from the past and shies from the future. No ties means no one gets hurt…until the boss’s daughter, a hot, green-eyed blonde, tempts him to break his own rules.
Will Matt break his rules to ride to Ally's rescue when tragedy strikes? Decadent Publishing
Fire Inside; a Chaos novel by Kristen Ashley
If you haven't saddled up with a bad boy, don'tcha think it's about time you did? The rest of us jumped on the back of Tack's bike for Motorcycle Man. C'mon! You will not regret this ride, honey.
Lanie Heron isn't looking for love--no surprise, considering her last serious relationship nearly got her killed. So when Lanie propositions Hop Kincaid, all she wants is one wild night with the hot-as-hell biker who patrols Denver, Colorado with the Chaos Motorcycle Club .
For Hop, Lanie has always been untouchable. She's too classy for his taste. But when she gives Hop the once-over with her bedroom eyes and offers him a night in paradise, he can't say no. And he doesn't regret it when he finds that Lanie is the best thing that's ever happened to him--in or out of bed. Now the trick will be to convince her of that.
It will help when she meets Hop's adorable mini-mc wannabe's, his kids. This book is hawt, but contains tender family moments too. Hachette Book Group
The Rebound Girl by Tamara Morgan
Cowgirls don't cry … but they do know the best revenge is living it up!
Plastic surgeon Whitney Vidra knows all about getting over a cheating ex. She followed her boyfriend halfway around the world before she found out about his infidelity. Now she's focusing on her career and her friends, and using men just for single-serving, no-strings fun. Until she meets charming Matt Fuller.
Newly single Matt is captivated by the vibrant Whitney, in every way the opposite of his cheating ex-wife. When he confesses to Whitney that he hasn't had sex since his divorce, she volunteers to be his rebound girl. But Matt's not a no-commitment kind of guy--he's either all in, or all out.
Whitney is determined to remain attachment-free, but Matt is equally determined to prove to her that what they have is more than just a rebound fling.
Good luck, cowboy, sounds like you deserve to ride off into the sunset with the girl! Carina Press
Ashes of the Day; Children of Night, Book 4 by PG Forte
Every cowgirl knows that only love can break your heart … unless your cowboy happens to be a vampire. Then it's blood. This popular series continues as …
Damian wouldn’t be the first vampire to find a way to die, but Conrad is determined he will not be one of them. Damian struggles to trust that fate could possibly be kind enough to give him a love as perfect as Conrad’s. Conrad balances on the keen edge of his own fear that one more slip of his formidable control could drive his lover away—permanently.
Even between vampires, love is not a smooth course. Full of as much intrigue and conflict as a gunfight at the OK Corral, as vampires engages in blackmail, and walk the knife-edge between two worlds.
Warning: Contains love triangles, power struggles, tears and teeth gnashing, and love between moody, domestically inclined vampires. Definitely not recommended for anyone suffering with aversions to ballrooms, evening clothes, sarcasm, or close-quarter stiletto combat.
Thank You, Mrs. M by Kate Rothwell
Cowboys have plenty of time around the campfire at night, out on roundup. So they (write letters home) dictate messages into their Smartphones. Well, that's how they do it if they're inner-city Hispanic orphans, busy corralling their younger siblings while they work and try to get into college.
Hey, cowboys come in all guises, and this is one ride you do not want to miss. You won't be able to stop reading until the sun comes up and the camp cook bangs the skillet for breakfast.
Benjamin Evans takes charge of his younger siblings, but still finds time for college--especially after he receives an offer of a full scholarship. The only catch in the sweet deal is he must share details about school and private facts about his life. As he talks into the recorder over the months, Ben's curiosity about his sponsor increases, but his knowledge of himself and where he fits into his world grows and grows. Loosely based on Daddy Long Legs, the novel by Jean Webster. Self-published.
Yee-haw! Space cowboys ride again in these next two books.

A former soldier and refugee from a world destroyed by war, Nick's focus is solely on carving a new place for himself and his growing business. When he finds himself stuck with an heiress, his life is turned upside down by murder, drugs and an interplanetary conspiracy.

Nick’s strong sense of duty prevents him from acting on the growing attraction between them, but Tru doesn’t have the same qualms. She willingly follows where her heart leads–straight to the enigmatic, honorable man who is fighting to keep her safe. Will she be able to convince him they belong together?
