Mary McCoy-Dressel (mary-j-mccoy-dressel) | 52 comments Hi, I manually added my book, but it's asking if I want to do a review. Could I have my book added and have my regular profile made into an author page? Thank you so much.

* Publisher

* Description
Velia Armano had the strength to walk away from an abusive husband. After throwing a dart on the map, she moved from Chicago to Tucson, Arizona and opened her own photography studio--at the cost of leaving behind her close-knit, prominent Italian family. Recovering from the physical and mental abuse she endured, she builds confidence, welcomes independence, and regains her self-worth.

Six months into her well ordered life alone, a hunky cowboy saunters in with his howdy, ma'am and flame blue eyes, offering a job any photographer would find hard to refuse. She accepts his offer and discovers they both have their own obstacles to overcome.

On their journey, while trying to resist his heated embrace and gentle nature, she hopes to find the right answer before the season ends--to remain in her self-appointed exile, or give in to a "happily ever after".

Bull rider Caulder McCutchen wants to start living again. But this year he has a good chance of winning the coveted buckle, knowing he has to ride harder, go bigger, or go home. Winning consumes him, but it doesn't take away the pain from a tremendous loss less than two years ago. On a whim, he hires a feisty photographer to travel the bull riding circuit with him for a season. A little extra publicity can't hurt, and she's easy on the eyes.

When he finds himself passionately attracted to her, will this sassy little Italian photographer prove to be just what his claim to fame needs--or a disastrous distraction? When the season ends, who wins the real prize?

You did add the book correctly. I got the cover added from the link you provided.

You can claim your author profile here:

It takes staff a few days to approve (maybe a few more with the holiday).
