They’re different as night and day…but it’s the right time for love.

Texas Montgomery Mavericks, Book 6

Porchia Summers was born into a family who gave her everything except affection. She acted out until her parents sent her to Whispering Springs before their high-society friends found out about her arrest record.

She builds a good life in Texas, but then the old boyfriend who got her in trouble tracks her down. Desperate to find a way to keep her past and present separate, she places a bid at a bachelor auction on the one man who’ll get her out of town for a few days.

Darren Montgomery is thrilled when Porchia wins him and a week of camping with his entire family in a charity bachelor auction. He’s also curious. He’s been flirting with the town’s sweet, sexy baker for years. Sometimes she flirts back, but she’s never let things go further than that. Darren’s not complaining, but he wonders just what’s going on behind Porchia’s pretty eyes.

Warning: Watch out for chigger bites, love bites, and secrets that bite.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
It's been 17 years since the tragic accident that got Porchia Summers shipped off by her shallow socialite parents to live with her nurturing grandmother in tiny Whispering Springs, TX. No longer that "immature teen," Porchia has carved out a new life as the owner of a successful bakery. But the past returns with a vengeance as one chilling phone call threatens to take it all away, unless Porchia can outwit the blackmailer. In an effort to escape and think, she ends up at a charity auction "buying" ten days on a camping trip with sexy rancher Darren Montgomery and is caught up in a relationship for which she hadn't bargained. VERDICT Sharply drawn characters, unanticipated plot twists, and page-singeing sex make this a lively romance and a solid addition to D'Alba's übersteamy series. D'Alba (Texas Bossa Nova) lives in Arkansas.

4.5 Stars This is books 6 in the Texas Montgomery Mavericks series and it features Darren Montgomery and Porchia Summers, a.k.a. Katherine Randolph. I agree with Darren. I don't like Katherine at all. She's a doormat and completely opposite of Porchia. I love how Darren is a "take no BS" kind of guy and that he doesn't let a fickle woman lead him around by the collar. I never thought she would turn into someone like Katherine. It shocked me but when you're starved for love from your parents, I guess you'd do almost anything. I did think she flipped back-and-forth between personalities a little too quickly. This was a great story! The storyline was smooth from the beginning to the end. The characters were fantastic. I would love to have a big family like the Montgomery's.

Reno hit the nail on the head with his words about Darren and Porchia. When love came calling it blew their world completely off it's axis. Darren may be a playboy but he knows when not to let a good thing go. Porchia is a woman with secret demons that continue haunt her and impede her ability to trust. Montgomery men love complicated women and Porchia and Darren are in for the fight of a lifetime. Texas Hustle has a hint of mystery and a lot of heart.

To his surprise she bids on him in the bachelor auction, but there is more than meets the eye. Porchia needs to get out of town and Darren is her ticket to just that. One problem no matter how much you run, lay low, or hide your past will catch up and secrets will come out. Will Darren stay by her side when he finds out about her past and where she is really from? I enjoyed this one. when you get the Montgomery clan together mischief and hilarity ensue.

Another great read by Cynthia D'Alba! Book 6 in the Texas Montgomery Maverick's series. Darren, twin to Reno and brother to KC and Porchia, who owns the town bakery are friends. Porchia has a past she's hiding from but when it catches up with her she finds a great opportunity to hide out for a while in Whispering Springs by bidding on Darren in a charity auction. Darren has always wanted Porchia but with her being a few years older than him has been her stopping block. She returns home to find her bakery burned and one of her employees burned and beaten in the hospital. Things come to head then and Porchia comes clean and heads home. Darren has the patience and manners every woman looks for in a man. Porchia has some decisions to make before Darren's patience comes to an end. What a great read. We get to see the whole Montgomery family at the Whispering Springs Lodge. Quite a few unexpected but pleasant surprises happen there. I can't wait for the next book in this series :)

4.5* Another great story by one of my favorite authors. I love this series and I can't wait to read the next book. The Montgomery's are such a fun family and I've loved every book in this series. Darren and Porchia are such a awesome couple. The chemistry between them was off the chartes. Now if Porchia can get only get past the fact that she's older then Darren they might have a chance at a HEA. That is until an evil from her past comes calling and threatens everything Porchia hold dear. Can Darren make her see that she belongs in in arms and in Texas? If you've not read this series I suggest that you hope to it. You will not regret it!

5★★★★★ The sixth book in Ms. D'Alba's "Texas Montgomery Series" Darren and Porchia's love story has been a long awaited read for me. Porchia has returned and Darren is ready to pursue Porchia, the thing is Porchia is older than Darren and she is not going to get involved with Darren because of the age difference. The problem with that is Darren wants her and he is going to get her, as all Montgomery men with their sexy good looks and charisma only can! A great read with just the right amount of sexy steamy chemistry to warm a reader's heart on a chilly fall or winter's night! This can be read as a stand alone book, but after reading "Texas Hustle" you will want to read the previous books in the "Texas Montgomery Series"!! I received and ARC for an honest review

TEXAS HUSTLE is a warm and romantic trip through rural Texas. Cynthia D’Alba creates an unrequited love story that meets the fish out of water with fabulous results. Characters are well drawn with great back stories. Porchia is the quintessential rich girl who hates her life. When a teenage scandal forces her to move in with her grandmother rural Texas, she finds a place she can call home. Darren Montgomery has worshiped Porchia from afar for years but all she wants is to be friends. When a bachelor auction leads to Porchia taking the next step, both find that together is exactly where they belong. Characters are drawn well and quite believable and the added touch of humor is always welcome. The fish out of water plot works well with its double application to both main characters. Predictability was very slight and hardly noticeable Part of Cynthia D’Alba’s Texas Montgomery Mavericks series, the secondary characters are from previous installments but since the book is a standalone readers won't need a score card to keep track. There's also a mystery with a bit of suspense. It’s a delightful book and I enjoyed every moment!
