Can you believe it? I sure can't! Where has the time gone? Seriously. We've grown so much over the years, and I'm not talking about numbers either. Just look at one of our first review - His Darkest Hunger - compared to one of our recent reviews - Reawakened. But we couldn't do any of this without you. So THANK YOU for being a reader. Whether you have been with us from the start or just joined out little book loving club recently, we're so happy that you take the time to see what we have to say. ☺

by Alexandrea Weis 
Published September 14th 2015 by Smashwords Edition
Strong willed, independent, and competitive as hell, Heather Phillips isn’t going to let anyone beat her in the show ring … that is until Grant Crowley started taking away her blue ribbons. A wealthy cattle rancher with an attitude and taste for beautiful women, Grant is the only person who ever made Heather feel second best. Yet she is determined to beat him, no matter the cost. When an accident brings the two rivals together, their heated dislike has to be put on hold. Outside of the show ring, they slowly get to know each other. But what happens when these passionate competitors discover a different kind of spark? Will Heather use what she learns about Grant to take advantage of him in the ring, so she can be number one?

Winning can mean everything until something sexier comes along.
