“The question is are you okay?” he asked, looking down at her with concern. “That was quite a spill you took.”

“I...I’m fine.” Her gaze centered on his mouth. Then, she did the most torturous thing she could have done to a man whose lower torso was pressed against hers and whose mouth was just a few scant inches from those fleshy, pink lips. She ran her tongue across her lips to wet them. And he thought super glue got hard fast.”
Lindsey Brookes, Kidnapped Cowboy

“If you were trying to startle us half to death, you succeeded,” she told him as she closed the distance between them.

He responded with an angry growl, “The only thing I was trying to do was cool my a..., er, butt off.”

“What?” Not the reply she had expected to get from him.

“Those little shits,” he huffed, pointing in the direction of the boys’ cabins, “slipped Ex-Lax into my coffee this morning!”

“How do you know it’s not just a stomach bug?”

He grunted his impatience. “Because I discovered the laxative box in the boys’ bathroom garbage, alongside the empty jar of Icy Hot those delinquents thought would be funny to smear all over the toilet seat in the boys’ bathroom.” Water ran down his tanned face, spewing from his lips as he ranted angrily.

No wonder Dalton had virtually flew, pants half undone, into the lake. Her lips began to twitch. This isn’t funny, she told herself. “Are you okay?”

Was he okay? Dalton arched a wet brow. “My innards aren’t threatening to combust any longer, but my ass is still burning.”
Lindsey Brookes, Kidnapped Cowboy

“The woman must look like the weathered side of a rotted fence post if she had to get a man this way.”
Lindsey Brookes, Kidnapped Cowboy

Lindsey Brookes FREE for a limited time! Hero of Her Heart by Lindsey Brookes.

Summary: From the moment Bethany Warner was born, Sheriff Tanner Montgomery was on the run. And he was only four at the time. Their mothers’ matchmaking efforts finally ended when Bethany’s family moved away. Now, ten years later, she’s coming back to Ruby Creek and his mother is up to her old tricks again.

Tanner is happy with his life just the way it is. No emotional entanglements. No wife or child to worry about leaving behind if something should happen to him in the line of duty. Then Bethany returns, all grown up and sexier than sin. Now he’s on the run for a whole new reason.

Growing up, Bethany idolized Tanner. He was the HERO OF HER HEART. But to him she’d been nothing more than a tag-a-long little kid. Too tall, too thin, with unruly curls and teeth she could whistle through.

That was then. Now she’s coming back to Ruby Creek, a successful, confident businesswoman, and no longer the ugly duckling she had once been. Can Bethany convince Tanner to give love a chance? And if she does, will it be everything she had always dreamt it would be?

Lindsey Brookes Capturing the Cowboy's Heart by Lindsey Brookes - on sale for only .99 cents!

After losing his wife in an accident two years before, not long after he'd been forced from the circuit by an injury, thirty-two-year-old Cade Tyler, ex-rodeo champion, thinks life has thrown him more than lemons. But life isn’t sends him Lacy Dalton.

She’s a reporter.

He hates reporters.

She’s pushy.

He hates pushy.

She’s sexy.

He...well, he just won’t let himself think of her that way.

The more Lacy learns about Cade’s past, the more she finds herself wanting to prove to him that not all reporters are bloodthirsty vultures. But her growing attraction to him puts not only her heart in jeopardy, but her life as well, because someone is out to ruin Cade and will do anything to make that happen.

Capturing the Cowboy's Heart

Lindsey Brookes Looking for a fun contemporary romance - Hooked on You by Lindsey Brookes is on sale for only .99 cents!

Chase Reynolds donated to a sperm bank years before while working on the police force, having no idea that a few months later an injury would leave him unable to father his own child. Now divorced and working as a private investigator, he’s about to find himself facing a past he’d just as soon forget.

When Shay McDaniels learns that her father has been receiving threatening letters, she heads to the resort he owns in the Keys, hoping to convince him to bring in the police. He stubbornly refuses, telling her that bad publicity of any sort could hurt his business.

Chase has no idea that the young woman he meets on the beach, the one whose son is determined to ‘catch his mommy a man’ is James Lansing’s daughter and grandson. The background check he’s done on James Lansing has his daughter currently living in Miami. So when he catches glimpses of her talking to James, even hugging him, she moves to the top of Chase’s suspect list.

For the first time since her divorce, a man succeeds in stirring Shay’s passion. But more importantly, he makes her son smile. Unfortunately, Chase Reynold’s constant proximity to her father stirs her suspicion as well.

When James Lansing invites both Shay and Chase to join him in the private dining room, they discover each other’s true identities. Then Lansing informs Chase he’s to become his daughter’s personal bodyguard until the situation with the threats is taken care of. Being thrown together twenty-four hours a day is the last thing Chase wants, considering the growing feelings he has for Shay. Distraction can make a man careless. But he accepts, determined to protect her and her son with his life.

Shay finds herself falling for her ‘bodyguard’, a man determined to keep his heart at bay because he believes she deserves a man who can give her more children. Can she convince him he really is her happily-ever-after? Or will secrets uncovered succeed in tearing them apart?

Humor…Romance…A touch of suspense…A story to warm your heart and make you laugh!

Lindsey Brookes Kidnapped Cowboy by Lindsey Brookes. Narrated by the multi-talented, award-winning Kaleo Griffith. Available at Amazon, Audible and iTunes!

Deal: When you buy the Kindle (ebook) version of Kidnapped Cowboy through Amazon, you can get the audiobook version for the incredibly low price of only $1.99.

Blurb: After countless attempts to speak with the owner of the retreat for troubled teens she runs on the outskirts of Lone Tree, Montana, Caitlin Myers resorts to kidnapping Brandon ‘The Ogre of Lone Tree’ Barnes in a desperate attempt to change his mind about turning Stoney Brook into a vacation resort for the wealthy.
Retired rodeo star, Dalton Barnes, gets the surprise of his life when he’s abducted by a soft-spoken female with a ‘gun’ and taken to the retreat his family owns. He soon learns she’s kidnapped the wrong cowboy by mistake. She wanted his brother. Things go from bad to worse when a late spring snowstorm strands them together at the cabin. But it’s during their snow-in that Dalton learns why Caitlin has gone to such lengths to save Stoney Brook. Having had issues with his older brother himself and a not so happy past, Dalton promises to do what he can to help her.
When confronted Brandon tells Dalton he’ll hold off on his plans for the retreat, but only if Dalton agrees to stick around and help run it. Keeping his promise to Caitlin, Dalton agrees and what starts out as a common goal to turn the troubled teens’ lives around that summer ends up turning theirs around as well. Can a man who has always avoided putting down roots and a woman with a deep-seated fear of abandonment hang on to the happiness they’ve found together? Or will the past return to threaten their newfound love?
Love, laughter and a heartwarming read…
