Beth Ann needed a hero…Beth Ann Williamson has finally had it with her on-and-off fiancé of nine years. The problem? No one in town seems to believe her when she says it’s really over. Now Beth Ann is determined to show the small town of Bluebonnet, Texas, that she can take care of herself. That means opening her own salon and not taking the help that her ex-fiancé seems determined to offer.
Of course, even the best laid plans go awry when she’s stranded in the woods in the middle of a downpour. Some independent woman she is. She can’t even find her way out of the woods without the help of a handsome, but scowling, Marine.
She got more than she bargained for…
A die-hard survivalist, Colt Waggoner’s none too pleased when he’s sent to find the town’s pampered princess. He’s even more annoyed when Beth Ann isn’t grateful for the rescue. Fine, then. He’ll just have to teach the sexy blonde a lesson--a weekend of roughing it out in the wild. Just the two of them, alone, in muddy, wet clothing that needs to come off…
But Beth Ann isn’t the spoiled princess he thought. And when she propositions him for a one night stand, he knows he should turn it down. Because this alpha male might need more than just one night in her bed to satisfy him…

Lexi's Thoughts:
Ah cake, an ultimate indulgence. It is even better when it is smeared across your sexy lover. After reading The Care and Feeding of an Alpha Male you may just have a craving for a big….piece of cake.

We met Beth Ann and Colt in book one, and they are two characters that definitely do not match. The perfect Beth Ann, ex-arm candy, never a hair out of place, vapid smile. How can Colt resist putting the princess through a rough weekend? And then there is Colt, the hardened Marine who needs to learn a few things of his own. Hmm….maybe they do fit after all.

The Care and Feeding of an Alpha Male was just plain fun to read. The surprising down to earth-ness of Beth Ann, the honorable way Colt handles himself (despite his poor decision at the beginning of the book), and then the relationship. They go through a real relationship, though it is full of very steamy sex, they get to know one another and take time with each step. There is just enough humor to have you laughing, and enough heart to make you want to cry at the injustice!

Book two is even better than the first. Wonder where in Bluebonnet book three will take us.

Rating: 4 Wines!


  1. This sounds like a cute read. Never heard of the series or the author. Now I gotta go see what book #1 is all about.

  2. I have not read any of the books by this author either, but, book looks great.
