The Granger siblings thought they’d left their ranching days behind, until fate sends them home to Wrangler’s Creek, Texas—and into the passionate arms of those they’d least expect…
It’s some run of bad luck when Sophie Granger loses her business and gets left at the altar all in one day. Desperate to not appear jilted, Sophie begs Clay McKinnon, Wrangler’s Creek’s smoking-hot police chief, to pretend they’re having an affair. But Clay refuses, leaving Sophie to retreat to the family ranch to lick her wounds.
Hoping to leave his disreputable past behind, Clay moved to Wrangler’s Creek for a fresh start. But that looks unlikely when Sophie’s ex-fiancé shows up married to Clay’s impulsive kid sister. Overcome, Sophie resuggests the affair—but this time for real. Clay is hesitant. City-girl Sophie isn’t usually his type. But he can’t deny the desire she elicits—or his yearning to have her plant her cowboy roots for good.
Those Texas Nights is a new series involving the Granger siblings. Sophie Granger is left at the altar and loses her business all in the same day. Clay is the interim Chief of Police and just wants to make his job permanent and keep an eye on his sister. When she shows up married, his world gets more complicated.
This was a fairly quick read. For the most part, I did enjoy the story. It is filled with some great and quirky characters. I definitely laughed out loud on more than one occasion. I really liked the little town that the author has built into the series. It should make for a lot more entertainment in the coming books.
What I wasn't so sold on was the romance between Clay and Sophie. I felt like a lot of time passed in the book, but I didn't see enough of them together to convince me that they fell in love. There were too many side stories that took away from the main couple. Despite that, this was a fun read and one I would recommend.
