Book Description:
All it takes is one night to change a cowboy’s life… Barrel racer Celia Lawson knows better than to tangle with bull rider Kyle Gilchrist. The sexy cowboy’s love ‘em and leave ‘em ways have earned him a reputation on the rodeo circuit, and he’s always seen her as his best friend’s kid sister. But after one wild, tequila-fueled night, Celia wakes up to find out she’s gotten herself hitched—to a man she never should have married! When Celia insists on an annulment, Kyle has no good reason to say no—except he isn’t ready to let go of his new bride. But then Kyle inherits a sprawling Wyoming ranch, and seizes the opportunity to enlist Celia’s help. She agrees to lend a hand—with two conditions: He has to get up to speed as a rancher within six months; then they’ll get a divorce. And their marriage will be in name only. Kyle gives in to Celia’s demand, yet he's ready to prove to her he has what it takes to turn their one night rodeo into a lifetime of love.

My Thoughts:
This book in three words: Steamy...Sexy...and Sweet!

Kyle and Celia were such compelling protagonists. It was a delight reading the interaction between them. They first had a love-hate relationship...which turned into lust-sorta-kinda-hate...which then turned into LOVE-with lots of lust thrown in. The transition between the three stages was humorous and sweet and never failed to keep my attention. Both Kyle and Celia struggled with a bit of people consciousness in that they were constantly aware (or thought they were aware) of what other people thought about them....including each other. But Celia, the normal spitfire, was so genuine in her support of Kyle as he learned the ropes as a rancher. And Kyle was so sweet in loving Celia as a woman should be loved.

I loved it story and would definitely recommend it to others and read it again.
