I was thrilled to be asked by the Love Inspired editors to take part in the second Lone Star Cowboy League contemporary continuity series—Boys Ranch. For those who may not know, a series continuity is six books plotted and outlined by the editor and written by six different authors. The romance in my book is complete from the meeting to the happily-ever-after, but there’s an interesting thread that runs through all six books, so be sure to catch them all!!!

THE RANCHER’S TEXAS MATCH by Brenda Minton
THE RANGER’S TEXAS PROPOSAL by Jessica Keller
THE NANNY’S TEXAS CHRISTMAS by Lee Tobin McClain
THE COWBOY’S TEXAS FAMILY by Margaret Daley
THE DOCTOR’S TEXAS BABY by Deb Kastner
THE RANCHER’S TEXAS TWINS by Allie Pleiter
And now, for the excerpt from THE DOCTOR’S TEXAS BABY:
“You were always very thoughtful,” Wyatt said.
Until she wasn’t.
“Not always.” Her mind darkened with the memory. This was a night for regrets.
He cleared his throat and turned toward her, his eyes a delicious dark chocolate. “I think we need to try to put the past behind us.”
“For Matty’s sake.”
Her whole being, heart and soul, leaned in to him, hoping beyond hope that there was something more. That he would tell her this wasn’t just about Matty.
He nodded slowly, never breaking eye contact with her. “Yes. For Matty.”
Her heart dropped like lead.
“But,” he continued as a tumble of emotion squeezed the air out of her lungs, “not just Matty.”
He paused and reached for her, framing her face with one hand. His work-worn hands were scratchy against her cheek, but Carolina thought she’d never felt anything nicer. The chemistry ricocheting between them was infinitely familiar and yet paradoxically brand-new.
They weren’t the same people they had been three years ago. They had both changed. Matured.
They had a son now.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little peek into my book. I’m going to be giving one copy away to a random commentator who answers the question: What was the last contemporary romance you read that truly grabbed your heart?
THE DOCTOR’S TEXAS BABY is available now online and wherever Harlequin books are sold.
