Marti Jenkins meets the doctor all the women in town are talking about when she twists her ankle in a gopher hole after shooting a snake.

Dr. Eli Boone is in Whispering Springs to cover his friend Hank Kelly while he's off doing some advanced training. The Clinic Hank runs is pretty awesome with everything an orthopedic patient could need, physical therapy, x-ray, and more.

When he finds Marti has torn ligament he puts her in an air cast telling her to keep off it.

Author Cynthia D'Alba has written another fun and entertaining novel with Texas Daze, the ninth book from her Texas Montgomery Mavericks series. It is a nicely-paced read, replete with an engaging plot, two well-defined main characters, and a complicated, yet seductive romance. The story takes place in the small town of Whispering Springs, Texas, where finding true love is a bit challenging. Although this book is part of a series, it can be enjoyed as a standalone.

Marti Jenkins has no interest in a relationship, not after her engagement ended like it did. Enter Dr. Eli Boone, who has come to Whispering Springs as a favor to his friend. Eli isn't interested in a relationship either but he's not adverse to a no-strings relationship. When a patient presents him with a challenge, he turns to Marti for help - and this may just turn not only his life on its head but also Marti's. Can two people from two different worlds find happiness?

This is a quick read and

Cynthia D'Alba writes hot cowboy stories. I am in love with her Montgomery men and Whispering Springs stories. This time, however, the wrangler is a woman, a real life cowgirl!
Marti has been raised on the ranch, riding since she was two. Now her parents are taking an extended vacation and trusting her to oversee everything. This is what she has dreamed of her entire life.

Eli is the new "hot doctor" in town. Marti has heard about him through the gossip grapevine, from her best friend Delene. When

I realized when I began reading that Texas Daze seemed very familiar. After doing a little research I found it must be the first book by Cynthia D'Alba that I read. It was in an anthology titled, When Things Got Hot in Texas. When I reviewed the anthology I stated that “Texas Daze by Cynthia D’Alba is another favorite of mine in the anthology as a minor injury sends a cowgirl straight into the arms of a New York bound doctor.” I gave it five stars then and have not reason to change now.

This is a very fast pace fun read that holds you attention giving the reader something to really smile at. The chemistry between Eli and Marti's is hot, leaving the reader doing some heavy fanning. When a New York surgeon meets a Texas cowgirl sparks fly and gets very interesting. Both have their own fears and will have to deal with a few issues. I really enjoyed the writing as the author pulled me in giving me scenes they felt so real and natural. I also enjoyed when Eli mother came into the ...more

At first glance, this Western romance would appear to be light-hearted with humour and sizzle to keep the reader smiling. However, both Marti and Eli have suffered in ways that leave scars on the soul that prevent them from making commitments. It is only in order to win his bet that Eli allows himself to be drawn in by Marti's down-to-earth approach to life, as well as her strength and willingness to face up to her difficulties without looking for ways of escaping them. The story is well written ...more

I really enjoyed this story by Cynthia D'Alba.
Marti Jenkins loves her work on her family ranch and injuries come with the job so twisting her ankle in a gopher hole isn't surprising even though it pisses her off. After trying to avoid the doctor for days her mother finally makes the appointment and isn't taking no for an answer. The appointment gets a lot more interesting when the new doctor walks into the exam room.

This was a fun and sexy short story. Dr. Eli Boone was in Whispering Springs Texas for only a short 6 months then its back to New York and a life that he's always wanted. Marti Jenkins has lived her life on her parents ranch The Flying Pig. Ranching is in her blood and what she loves. Meeting the hot new Dr. was not on her to-do list and not after she's sprained her ankle. Sparks fly but you don't date a patient but after she released Eli can't stop himself and asks Marti out. If asking her to ...more

Texas Daze by Cynthia D'Alba takes place in Whispering Springs. it is a small town. this is Dr. Elias (Eli) Boone an orthopedic surgeon from New York and a local lady, Marti Jenkins' story.

This is the first book I have read in the Whispering Springs Series but it will not be my last. I love the characters within this small town. In Texas Daze your main character is a female Rancher Marti tough as nails but still maintains her feminine side. Introduce Dr. Eli who is only in Whispering Springs for a short time to cover for the Dr of the town. You could not have a more opposite family traits. Eli comes from the high Society and his mom a true uppity snob only wants him to focus on ...more

Texas Daze is a fast paced, fairly quick read if you get addicted to it like I did!
This one grabs your attention quickly and keeps you turning the pages until the very end. I loved Marti & Eli, she being a strong heroine is one of my favorite things. She's fiercely independent and deeply rooted in Texas, her friends and family.
Eli is a pretty great hero as well, being an upper class doctor doesn't stop him from getting his hands dirty or falling for a cowgirl, not to mention being pretty

Quirky, fun, sweet, sexy, thrilling and emotionally gripping unexpected second chance at love romance filled with passion and laughter. (two of my favorite things)

Read Texas Daze from When things got hot and what a great read! !

Cynthia D’Alba always has just the right characters, well developed story line, and bring back others from a former series to complete a new story line with added heat to make you keep reading!

Eli an Ortho surgeon from New York is so out of his element in Whispering Springs and Marti a sexy, smart and beautiful cowgirl who is running her parents ranch.

Texas Daze by Cynthia D'Alba
This is Dr. Elias (Eli) Boone and Marti Jenkins' story. This is an entertaining, sweet, and steamy romance of two people who are total opposites. Eli is only in Whispering Springs for a short time. Marti's life is running her family's ranch. Will they take a chance on love? I really loved Eli and Marti's characters. The chemistry between them was hot. A fun and enjoyable read. FYI, contains mature content.

Born and raised in Arkansas. After wandering the world for 17 years (okay, it was Memphis, but it felt like another world!), I've made it home again. I live in a small vine covered cottage on the shores of a 8,000 acre lake with 2 dogs, a bitchy parrot and my fisherman husband. Live is good.
