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.
