Guest Post & Giveaway: A Match Made In Texas by Katie Lane

Posted March 25, 2014 by Sherri in Book Spotlight, Giveaways / 6 Comments


Today we have Katie Lane on the site and we were able to ask her some questions. In honor of her heroine Brianne who manages to land herself in the jail, we asked Katie what would be her top items that she would want to have with her if she had to go to jail.  We love her choices and totally agree with the Dove’s dark chocolate (and the laptop and the ereader and the pillow).  🙂  Also, be sure to enter the giveaway below for your chance to win a copy of Katie’s entire backlist or a copy of A Match Made in Texas.

~ Top 5 Things to Bring to Jail ~

by Katie Lane

1.       Laptop.  Give me peace and quiet and my laptop, and I can be happy just about anywhere.

2.       Dove’s dark chocolate.  Because sometimes you just need a little zap of sugar and cocoa.

3.       My pillow.  I sleep much better when I have my soft, comfy pillow.

4.       Ereader.  Depending on how long I’m there, I could really cut into my TBR list.

5.       A hacksaw.  Because, after a few days, I’ll miss my husband and my Cairn terrier Roo and I’ll need to escape.

Thanks, Urban Girl Reader!  It’s always a pleasure.

by Katie Lane
Series: Deep in the Heart of Texas #6
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Western
Publication: March 25th 2014 by Forever
Format: Paperback/eBook, 352 pages

Book Description:

Living with four over-protective brothers is enough to make a good girl go bad. But the day Brianne Cates hits the road for a taste of freedom, she gets more trouble than she bargained for when she’s arrested by a sexy sheriff in mirrored shades. Now doing a stint of community service, she’s not going to let a cowboy cop like Dusty Hicks mess with her newfound independence-even if he awakens every wicked fantasy she’s ever had.

In Bramble, Texas, Dusty is the law. That means no leniency for the gorgeous rebel whose highway antics almost got them both killed. The divorced lawman doesn’t need another rich, pampered princess, even if Brianne has the lushest body and sweetest smile in the whole darn state. But even as Brianne proves that she lives to walk on the wild side, Dusty begins to wonder if maybe he has what it takes to tame her.

Holiday Love with Jennifer Ryan – All I Want for Christmas is a Cowboy by Emma Cane, Jennifer Ryan and Katie Lane

Posted December 9, 2013 by Sherri in Author Spotlight, Giveaways / 10 Comments


Holiday Love by Jennifer Ryan

I recently spoke to a friend and told her about the novella I’d written for Christmas. Excited to read it, she said, Christmas is the perfect time to meet someone new and fall in love.

I think she’s right.

The holidays bring a sense that anything can happen, leaving us open to invitations and new experiences. It’s the holidays, why not try something new? Maybe you’ll meet someone special at the company holiday dinner, or at a friend’s party, or get set up with your friend’s cousin from out of town.

Maybe it’s the hope that in any one of those ordinary things we look forward to at the holidays, shopping at the mall, hunting for the perfect Christmas tree, meeting a friend for cocktails and smiling at the guy who can’t stop looking at you, you’ll find something extraordinary. You’ll find the one who will give you the one gift we all want at Christmas. Love.

So, step out of your everyday routine this holiday. Accept the invitations you’d normally opt out of to stay home and watch The Black List. Smile at the guy next to you in line at the grocery store, who’s also buying a last minute bottle of wine for a hostess gift. If your friend invites you to her company party because you just have to meet the cute guy in engineering, say yes. Geeks are great guys. I know. I married one.

Need a little inspiration? How about a girl who falls for her brother’s best friend? Want to get stranded with a stranger? A snowball fight, sleigh ride, a proposal…and yes, hot cowboys. Need I say more?About the

What’s better than Christmas? Christmas and Cowboys. Contemporary romance stars Emma Cane, Jennifer Ryan, and Katie Lane join together for a holiday anthology to remember.

“The Christmas Cabin” by Emma Cane
Sandy, recently diagnosed with MS and abandoned by her husband, is determined to make Christmas special for her five-year-old Nate. While they’re trooping through the woods to cut down their Christmas tree, a snowstorm arises, and a mysterious old ranch hand points them toward an abandoned cabin. Little do they realize, the ranch hand also guides cowboy Doug Thalberg to the same place…

“Can’t Wait” by Jennifer Ryan
Before The Hunted series, Caleb and Summer had a whirlwind romance not to be forgotten…
Caleb Bowden has a lot to thank his best friend, Jack, for – saving his life in Iraq and giving him a job helping him run his family’s ranch. He also introduced him to the most incredible woman he’s ever met. Too bad he can’t ask her out. You do not date your best friend’s sister. Summer and Caleb share a closeness she’s never felt for anyone, but the stubborn man refuses to turn the flirtatious friendship into something meaningful. Frustrated and tired of wishing to be happy, Caleb tells Jack how he feels about Summer. With his friend’s help, he plans a surprise Christmas proposal she’ll never forget – because he can’t wait to make her his wife.

“Marry Christmas” by Katie Lane
Alana Hale is tired of irresponsible beach bums whose only plan for the future is catching the next “awesome” wave. So when she tries her luck with an internet dating service and ends up hitting the Responsible-Sensitive-Man jackpot, she wastes no time accepting Clint McCormick’s invitation to spend the holidays on his family’s ranch. But when an unexpected blizzard strands Alana, she’ll be forced to find refuge in the arms of a womanizing rodeo cowboy who knows how to take the chill off a cold winter night. Now Alana will have to make a choice between the man who heats her blood and the man who touches her heart. Or will she? Mistaken identity will give Alana the man of her dreams and a very “Marry” Christmas.
