2014 RITA Winner for Best First Book

A Love as Big as Texas . . .
Charla Rae Denny was the perfect wife with a perfect life, content to keep the home fires burning while her husband, JB, competed as a champion bull rider. Then their son died in a tragic accident-and everything fell apart. Divorced and saddled with a hill of bills and a failing ranch, Charla must now cowboy up to put her life back together.

James "JB" Denny doesn't stay where he isn't welcome. So when Charla shut him out of her grieving heart-and their home-a year ago, he took comfort where he could find it. Now after seeing beautiful Charla again, he wants it all back. She can't work the ranch alone, and deep in his heart he knows he can be the man she needs. But after so much history and heartbreak, can JB convince Charla to take a risk and give their love a second chance?

From the Author:

Dear Readers:

Who can resist a cowboy?

Not me. Especially a bull rider, who has the courage to get on two thousand pounds of attitude that wants to throw him in the dirt and dance on his dangling parts. But you don't need to be familiar with rodeo to enjoy The Sweet Spot. It's an emotional story first, about two people dealing with real-life problems, and rediscovering love at the end of a long dirt road.   
 
To introduce you to Charla Rae Denny, the heroine of The Sweet Spot, I thought I'd share with you her list of life lessons:

  • Before you throw your Ex off your ranch, be sure you know how to run it.
  • A Goth-Dolly Parton look-alike can make a great friend. And dumpster monkeys are helpful, too.
  • Next time, start a hardware store instead of a bucking bull business - the stock doesn't try to commit suicide every few minutes.
  • Never trust a husband too far, nor a bachelor too near - Helen Rowland
  • If you're the subject of the latest gossip-fest, stay away from the Clip-n-Curl.
  • Life is full of second chances, if you can get over yourself enough to grab them.
  • To forgive is to set a prisoner free, and discover that the prisoner is you -- Louis B. Smede
I hope you'll enjoy The Sweet Spot, and look for JB and Charla in the next two books in the series!
