This is a collection of stories that are full of romance, hot, sexy cowboys and will keep you warm on a cold night. There is a cowboy for everyone in this series and also a favorite author. It will make wishing for Christmas to come and getting one of these cowboys in your stocking. My favorite of these is Tempting a Cowboy. Johnson and Debra are great characters but they will go through life struggles where temptation could prove to be too much for them. This is a must read anthology.

~ Leslie Garcia ~

Leslie P. García grew up lost among a crowd of six siblings and a menagerie that included more than twenty horses and ponies, uncounted dogs and cats, possums, raccoons—even a lion and monkeys. Then she moved to Texas, fell in love, was disowned—and embarked on her real adventures, raising 4 children, teaching hundreds, and loving 9 grandkids through forty years of marriage. The fabric of that colorful life has always been writing. In A Love Beyond, Leslie celebrates two of her passions—unusual love stories and the ever present chance at redemption in spite of past mistakes. Leslie loves hearing from readers and can be found all over cyber space.

~ Melissa Keir ~

For my wedding in Vegas, my books and computer came with me but there wasn’t enough room for my wedding shoes. It’s all about priorities! As an avid reader, I was probably born with a book in hand. Luckily my mom was also an avid reader, so it was easy to “borrow” her books when my books were finished.

I was reading from an early age about dashing men on horseback riding to the rescue of strong willed and capable women who didn’t really need rescuing. I came to expect that women in fairy tales should have fought their own battles. When I was older, I found Margaret Atwood and realized that women could re-tell history in their own way and I experimented with changing those basic fairy tales.

Fortunately for me, my husband allows me the opportunity to be myself (spend my salary on books) and still takes care of the really important things for me like killing spiders and opening jars. As an elementary teacher, teaching children about the many worlds inside of books is a gift that I’m lucky enough to do for a living. Teaching the next generation to love reading is a lot of fun! Reading the right book can make a new world come alive!

Currently living in the near the South Carolina beaches with my darling husband, princess cat and spoiled dog, I enjoy getting away through a book to many different worlds.

I’d love to hear from you!

~ Debbie Desmarteau ~

I started writing years ago, something I had wanted to do most of my life. Then it all stopped. It took good friends and reassuring encouragement to start again. So glad I did!

When I’m not writing, I get immense pleasure in stocking my shelves with home canned goods. I love to experiment with new recipes using the fresh herbs and veggies I grow. My goal is to publish a cook book someday, with all the different dishes I’ve created and to share my family secrets. Whether it’s about a love inspired romance or cooking, creating a story and sharing it with you is a dream come true.

I would love hearing from you!

~ Stephanie Berget ~

Stephanie Berget was born loving horses, a ranch kid trapped in a city girl’s body. It took her twelve years to convince her parents she needed a horse of her own. She found her way to rodeo when she married her own, hot cowboy. She and the Bronc Rider traveled throughout the Northwest while she ran barrels and her cowboy rode bucking horses. She started writing to put a realistic view of rodeo and ranching into western romance. Stephanie and her husband live on a farm, located along the Oregon/Idaho border. They raise hay, horses and cattle, with the help of Dizzy Dottie, the Border Collie and Cisco, barrel and team roping horse extraordinaire.

~ D’Ann Lindun ~

Falling in love with romance novels the summer before sixth grade, D’Ann Lindun never thought about writing one until many years later when she took a how-to class at her local college. She was hooked! She began writing and never looked back. Fifty manuscripts and numerous awards later, she is an Amazon bestseller! Romance appeals to D’Ann because there’s just something so satisfying about writing a book guaranteed to have a happy ending. Her particular favorites usually feature cowboys and the women who love them.

D’Ann loves to hear from readers!

Gamble on a Cowboy by Melissa Keir and D’Ann Lindun. I really enjoyed both the stories, they each pulled at my heart and I loved the female characters, I just love strong female leads who are independent but open to possibilities. Each story had me hooked, I only wished to have more time with the characters. There’s plenty of heartwarming and steamy moments and characters to love. Each story may be shorter but they didn’t lack anything important for me. I still loved the characters and story. Each well written and paced nicely. Five star read in my opinion! You won’t regret picking this up!

This is a two story book. Both were fast paced and quick reads.

A Vegas Cowboy- David aka Daisy, was quickly liked by me and i really felt for him from his short background story.
Things take an interesting turn out on the town and he must confront new feelings.

Vegas,Baby,Vegas- A woman in a man dominated profession gets recognized alot and also stepped on for things but when someone catches her eye, and not in a good way, in her mind at least, Bailey must make quick decisions .
I really liked Bailey except for her one big mistake.

This was a great collection to read, and I love the sneak peaks at other works by these authors. I will be reading more for sure!

This book was a fast read for me but really good. The two main characters are David “Daisy” and Alicia. The accidentally meet at a conference in Las Vegas. Alicia was there as a keynote speaker and Daisy was there to attend the conference as a restaurant owner. Daisy and Alicia literally run into each other at the airport then Daisy saves her poolside from an aggressive stranger. Deciding to have a few drinks and go out for the evening to thank Daisy. The next morning both wake up with extreme hangovers and no memory of the previous night, but do discover quickly they are married. Trying to undo what they have done is not as easy as they thought and their attraction to each other is off the charts. Daisy is struggling after losing his first wife and daughter in a house robbery years ago and Alicia isn’t sure what to do about Daisy. This was a great book and I look forward to reading more from this author.

Gamble On A Cowboy by authors Melissa Keir and D’Ann Lindun

5-Stars

Gamble On A Cowboy consists of two short romance stories featuring Las Vegas and Cowboys. The lead female in each story is very independent, confident, and driven. The lead males were both attractive and focused. Each character was dedicated and passionate about their career choices and I loved that they meshed easily with each of the ladies careers. The storyline of each was easy to follow and difficult to put down. I found it easy to get carried away and mixed up in the drama and romance. This compilation was such a fun read and I definitely recommend it.

4 Stars

I so wanted more of each of these stories, there just wasn’t enough time to build the connection to these characters as I would have liked. I did though enjoy the storylines and the writing in both stories was smooth and very easy to follow its just that they were both so short that everything happened a bit too fast for me.

Both stories were unique in their own right and I read both of them in one sitting. It was absolutely enough though for me to want more from both authors. This was my first read by D’Ann Lindun and I want to say my 3rd or 4th by Melissa Keir and I will be looking into more from both of them.

I do recommend anyone wanting to read something quick that they should pick this up, definitely fast moving and will leave you craving more.

I’m typically not a fan of “western romance” or cowboys (probably because I’m a city girl at heart and it is like reading a foreign language) but I decided to take a chance on this 2 story collection. I’m glad I did, because I found both stories enjoyable.

I’m not sure what the connection is between the two authors but for as much as their writing style was similar, it was also very different. Both stories had lovely main characters with backstories that made them be who they are today. Both stories had strong women who weren’t afraid to be a woman in a “man’s world”.

These stories have surprise and tenderness and romance and sexy times. They also had miscommunications and angst and everything that makes a romance fun to read.

Side note: When I read the blurb and there was mention about taking stock to market, I was thinking the “financial market” I was wrong. Hehe

I will be reading stories by both of these authors in the future and recommend this collection.

Gamble on a Cowboy by Melissa Keir & D’Ann Lindun is a combination of 2 great books by 2 amazing authors.
These books were a great way introduce me to two new series. It gave a great insight into what they would be like. They were both lighthearted and easy to read, a great snapshot of what else is to come. The characters were all interesting and easy to connect with. Although short the stories had depth and held my interest well.
I have read Melissa Keir before so knew I would enjoy her work however D’Ann was new to me and I liked the way she had pace and the book had a good flow about it. I will be checking out more from both of these authors in the future for sure.
