About The Book:
Shirley Bloom is the town pretty girl, but she’s tired of no one seeing beyond her looks. She wants to marry and finally have a family like her sister, but her beau has yet to ask for her hand.

When sexy stranger, Luke Austin propositions her on the street where anyone can hear, Shirley is both shocked and aroused. Luke’s words are outrageous, and awaken longings Shirley has never felt.

A shotgun wedding isn’t the start either expected, and now they are forced to find something beyond their sexual attraction to build a life around. Can the wandering cowboy and the self-centered merchant’s daughter find love together?

The Review:
Warning: Don’t start this book late at night! You’ll want to finish it in one read.
Luke is a rough-around-the-edges, crude cowboy who loves to shock people, and had no trouble speaking plainly about matters that should be kept private. I fell in love with him on the first page!
Shirley is equally loveable, a strong, beautiful woman who hasn’t found the man who can sweep her off her feet. She’s waiting for the pastor’s son to ask her to marry him, because he can provide her with a safe, secure—if dull—life.
This book is full of passion, the pages sizzle when these two get together. But there is real emotion and real conflict balancing the heat. If you enjoy westerns, love sexy, outrageous cowboys, put this book on the top of your list.
