Ghost Of A Chance

Reporter Nikki "The Barracuda" Scott will sink her teeth into anything. So when her editor sends her to get the lowdown on bad boy football star Cal Braxton, Nikki's game to rough it on his family ranch. She just isn't prepared for exactly how rough. Still, the nasty outhouse, noisy animals, and resident ghost won't put Nikki off. . .especially once she sets eyes (and hands, and mouth) on her subject. If there's a juicy story here, Nikki intends to devour it. . .

So, the lady thinks she's gonna get the scoop on him? Cal's had his fill of scheming females--hell, his conniving ex-fiancee is the very reason he's hiding out. Then again, if all journalists were as hot as Nikki, he might consider being more open with the press. Too bad she won't be around for long. If the chores and "rustic" conditions don't frighten Nikki off, her haunted accommodations surely will. Tough it turns out Nikki doesn't scare easily. Now Cal's the one who's scared--of falling hard. . .

    An amusing contemporary gender war romance

    Following his latest breakup that the media and not just the sports segment devoured, football star Cal Braxton needs a breather from the feeding frenzy of the intrusive press. He hides out at his brother's dude ranch in Texas.

    Her editor assigns reporter Nikki "The Barracuda" Scott to go undercover to uncover Cal's secrets. To do this Nikki becomes a guest at the ranch. Although she assumes he played football without a helmet and thus has a Grand Canyon where his brain should be, he knows he has a journalist snooping in his affairs. Instead of his sibling's ranch, he takes her to the family's rundown homestead with a cabin that looks like OSHA and EPA would condemn even before the Housing crowd got involved. He figures with no electricity, no Internet, no water and an outhouse, the city flicker will flee for the nearest urban hill. Instead she handles every dirty farm trick and cow chip he throws at her and tosses them back while a ghost tries to regain solo occupation of the abode. As his game plan fails to execute properly, Cal feels sacked as he goes from anger to admiration to attraction to love seemingly before the first fifteen plays occurred.

    HOW TO SEDUCE A TEXAN is an amusing contemporary gender war romance. The lead couple is a fabulous pairing between an obstinate reporter known as the Barracuda for a reason and a football star known for his womanizing ways who matches her stubbornness all the way. Readers will relish Karen Kelley's fun tale while wondering by the two minute warning whether love will prove enough with this pig-headed pair.

    HOT AND SEXY...

    Karen Kelley's How To Seduce A Texan lives up to its title. It's funny, sassy and sexy to boot.

    Reporter Nikki Scott aka The Barracuda has been sent to get the scope on football star Cal Braxton. Seems Cal has holed up at his brother's dude ranch. Nikki is determined to get her story. But Nikki thought it would be more like a spa.

    Cal Braxton needed a break from the press that has been dogging his private and professional life. When he finds out his newest guest is a reporter, he vow to make her regret trying to get the scope on him. Giving Nikki Scott the rustic experience will have her running back to the city ASAP.

    Nikki isn't put out by the rough experience as long as Cal is there to help out. Nikki and Cal stumble into a scorching hot affair that has them both rethinking their lives.

    Karen Kelley's book are filled with humor and smoking hot chemistry. Her books always deliver the reads that I enjoy. This book is no exception, its sexy and a must for any romance lover.

    Hot, Sizzling Read

    HOW TO SEDUCE A TEXAN is Karen Kelley's latest release. The book is a hot, sizzling, funny read - true to the style which is this author's trademark.

    Cal Braxton is a professional football player, who after a much publicized breakup with his now ex-fiancé is hiding out on his brother's dude ranch from everyone until the dust settles and he thinks through his options. The last thing he needs is a scheming reporter to invade his territory for a story. He was going to enjoy making her life miserable and would have her running back to the city in no time. Cal was going to win this round or so he thought underestimating the staying power of Nikki when she is after a scoop. Nikki handles all that Cal throws at her and then some.

    Nikki Scott also known as "The Barracuda" is a reporter who always gets her story. Although she resents her editor for sending her to get the lowdown on Cal - a womanizing, spoilt, sports player - she will get her story and succeed at all costs. When she sinks her teeth into a story nothing will stand in her way. Nikki just never thought that a dude ranch could be this rough and her accommodations are less than ideal with the rustic cabin that has not been inhabited in a long time, and which comes with its own ghost and outside toilet. Who was to know that the subject of her story was so hot and makes her melt whenever she is around him?

    The games that Cal and Nikki play are entertaining to the reader. Nikki has no idea that her cover was blown from day one and Cal is onto her. On the other hand Cal cannot believe that no matter what he does Nikki doesn't give up and go back to the City. All he knows is he is losing ground fast when it comes to keeping his heart out of this mix and that is something he will not allow. He is going to use this situation to his advantage and then walk away for once on the winning side of the press.

    The hot chemistry between Nikki and Cal make the pages sizzle. There is also a secondary romance between Cal's brother and the massage therapist which only ads depth to an already entertaining read. It is fun to see two stubborn, obstinate people deny their true feelings to one another because we all know that the mighty will fall. When all the lies come to light will these two come to their senses and see past it all to what they really have? Karen has weaved an enjoyable read which I would recommend. This author is one of my favorites and this story has all the elements of a sizzling romance from the very first. I look forward to more stories from her in the future.

    City Girl Meets Her Sexy Texan Man

    Bad boy football star Cal Braxton is hiding out on his Brother Brian's dude ranch trying to avoid the press and let things calm down from his recent breakup with one of society's elite. Getting a tip that reporter Nikki "The Barracuda" Scott is headed to the ranch in search of all of Cal's dirty secrets, he places her in the old homestead, a rundown cabin, complete with outhouse, no electricity or running water and its own resident ghost.

    City girl Nikki isn't quite prepared for the country life but she will do anything for a story and she isn't about to let a ghost, rogue rooster or learning how to milk a cow, churn butter or anything else that Cal wants to throw at her make her run for the hills! Oh course if he wanted to throw himself at her, she wouldn't run away from that either!

    Although instantly attracted to Nikki, Cal does his best to run her off. But Cal has to admire her gumption and learns that not all reporters are alike. Can they keep their minds and hands off each other or will passion bring these two very different people together?

    I love the humor that author Karen Kelley puts in every book as she gives us another hot and fun story that I can promise you won't want to miss! Way to go Karen! I look forward to more of your wonderful stories!

    ## Just ok

    This is my second book by karen kelly and the same thing happened with both. In this case the female character was a complete manipulative liar, so it's so hard to believe the hero could fall in love with her. The last book, the male lead was a complete jerk. These characters need to have some redeeming qualities for the reader to fall as well. The humor was great however!

    A very romantic paranormal story. Loved it.

    Wow.This paranormal sure knows how to pack a punch straight from the beginning and leaves you breathing heavy after you finish. Not only is there ghostly happenings but there is one HOT romance that builds between the two main characters, Nikki and Cal. To sweeten the already delicious pot is a secondary romance between Cal's brother and the massage therapist that comes to work at the resort that Cal is staying at. This book truly has several angles that leave you surprised. There wasn't one single thing I disliked about the story. I couldn't find anything even after I read it a second time. One of the things that stuck out which made me laugh several times.SPOILER ALERT.Was a poor old rooster who had issues impressing his harem of chickens. Yes, I typed rooster. This poor thing had me, Nikki, Cal and I'm sure Karen, the author, giggling several times. Wrapped up in this drool worthy cover is a plot full of mischief, paranormal happenings, a rooster without game, and sizzling romances. This is definitely a must read.
