First let me tell you this is one hot series that never fails to amaze me at the next level the author takes to bring you in the stories. Yes they each are individual stories and can be read alone but you do hear of characters from previous novels in the redemption series. I have read each one and so far I think that I love this one the most (it was close and they are all amazing). Anita, you have seen her in the others and even though she shows a though outer shell she is a women full of heart and has had a very though time where men are involved. I was really happy to hear she was going to get her own story! Luke has had a pull on me from the beginning, he is a strong alpha and yearns to protect those he is closest to. But is overshadowed by the past and feels guilty! What happens when a dead body shows up and he is sent to find out the missing pieces? Will Luke let his feelings overshadow his mission and another person he is close to die? Trust me when the author whips up a story she will not leave you hanging and fills your mind with pleasure and suspense all in the same novel! Her characters are very well developed and are real life. The plot is filled with scenes that are easy to follow and keep you hanging on for more! I highly recommend this novel and her others in the Redemption series!

Date Published: Feb. 2013




“When a female bodyguard is hired to protect a rich playboy, she finds saving his life is easier than protecting her heart.”

When the past and present collide…

Somebody wants rich playboy Franco Callahan dead. When security expert Josephine Fortune arrives on his doorstep thanks to his sister Doriana, Franco finds it hard to refuse. He’s had a secret attraction for the diminutive bodyguard since they met at Doriana’s wedding five years before.

But attraction is all it is. Combat boot-clad Jo is not the kind of woman Franco usually loves and leaves. Which makes the ruse that Jo is his new live-in girlfriend just that until Jo gets a makeover. Suddenly seduction is on his mind and Franco has all the time in the world to pursue it—and Jo.

Martial artist Jo can take down men twice her size without blinking, but Franco’s appeal outmaneuvers her emotional defenses. Jo’s tough exterior hides a dark past, and Franco seems determined to learn her every secret. But he has secrets of his own.

The more Franco gets to know Jo, the more he realizes he needs her in his life, and not as his bodyguard. But as the threats to Franco escalate, Jo must use every one of her combat skills to protect him.

Can Jo keep both Franco and her heart safe, or will they pay the ultimate price for love?

Book Blitz ~ Pretty Reckless & Whatcha Gonna Do With a Cowboy by Jodi Linton


Pretty Reckless &

Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy

by Jodi Linton

Series: Deputy Laney Briggs, #1 & #1.5

Genre: Romantic Suspense




Book 1: Pretty Reckless

She’s dead-set on giving one bullheaded cowboy the boot.

Welcome to Pistol Rock, Texas where everyone knows secrets last about as long as the sporadic west Texas rain showers.

Laney Briggs has long been considered reckless, but she’s turned herself around—she’s respectably engaged and she’s become a Pistol Rock deputy sheriff. Everything’s fine until a dead body turns up and her ex, Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson, decides to stick his boots into the town’s first murder case.

Laney will be damned if she lets Gunner trample all over her turf and her chance at a quiet, contented life. His seemingly endless ability to undermine her resolve and her libido was only outdone by her constant urge to butt heads with him. But when the bodies start to pile up, Laney has to ask the lethal bad boy for a hand—and a truce in exchange for his help.

Having an ex-boyfriend as an ally might not be the best idea, but Laney has always been pretty reckless…



Book 1.5: Whatcha Gonna Do With A Cowboy

Some cowboys are worth getting dirty for.

In her latest adventure, sassy Deputy Laney Briggs discovers the local high school football coach passed out under the stadium bleachers wearing nothing but a smile…and his wife’s lingerie.

Things really start to get wild when she runs into the smoking hot Federal Marshal, Colt Larsen, snooping around the Granger’s house. Quicker than a cold snap comes and goes in Texas, Laney finds herself up to her eyeballs in a case involving a ruthless motorcycle gang, a Mexican drug cartel, a kidnapping, and a shoot-out to rival the O.K. Corral.

In over their heads, Laney calls in the big guns—her very own Texas Ranger, Gunner Wilson, who’s ready to fulfill every last one of her desires. But as things heat up between them, the stakes get higher than ever, and Gunner’s help may not be enough for Laney to get out alive…





This was a great beginning to a new series with one hilarious boot wearing woman named Laney Briggs. She is feisty, crazy, and funny. However, everyone looks at her as kind of as trouble follows. When she gets a call to a ranch on what she believes is a typical feud, a twist into the story lets loose and she gets more than she bargains for. I felt sorry for her because not only did she deal with the fued but now a blast from the past is about to unravel her world. With who do I start? Luke has had eyes for her forever and will come to her aid when needed. Of course you can’t really trust him. Gunner was the one but of course he broke the number one rule. When he shows back up he is there more than what his original mission was. The author will give you one heck of a ride in this novel from start to ending. You will be laughing one minute with the bantor between Lane and sexy Gunner; while the next trying to find out what is going on in the little town of Pistol Rock. The author has built a plot that will have you guessing and trying to find out what is going on. If you love hot cowboys, fun story with some mystery then this is one novel that should be on your next to be read.
