Overview

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.

If the first book in Delores Fossen’s new Wrangler’s Creek series, Those Texas Nights is anything to go by she sure has a real winner on her hands. Wrangler’s Creek is one of those homey small towns populated by unique and somewhat quirky characters that makes you want to live there.

There’s lots going on in this story, businesses being embezzled, unlikely personal relationships being started, a couple of super cute little boys who will totally delight you and some steamy lovin’ to suit your fantasies. So come along and meet the lovely people of Wrangler’s Creek and fall in love with sexy Chief Clay McKinnon and sassy Sophie Granger. A Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team Sleection

Those Texas Nights is a quirky and fun small town romance story that takes a look at the everyday life of the town folks, with its trials and triumphs, drama and celebration. I was in awe with the wit and cleverness of some of the twists of the language and the unique sayings the author used in the tale. The humor is subtle most of the time, having me laughing out loud on several occasion and unexpectedly. The characters are somewhat peculiar and definitely one-of-the-kind, yet they demonstrate the human mind and the inner thoughts we rarely share with others in a true and straightforward way, open to everyone to hear and see and gossip about, most of the time even without shame and humiliation. I couldn't help but admire the characters and cheer for them, relate to them and share their pain, fear, passion, and adoration. The drama and tragedies of the town are told from several different points of view, mainly focusing on the Granger family and McKinnon siblings. From business investigation to everyday illnesses, from fear of losing to loving with all your heart, and everything in between the characters faces their life and destinies head on with full speed. Both Sophie and Clay have baggage from the past that isn't easy to leave behind and effect their life and decisions of their future. The hurt is still there and it takes an effort and time to heal and make things work out as they are destined to be. The chemistry between them was evident to all, the connection obvious, but that didn't make forming a relationship easy or effortless for them. Delightful storytelling of charming characters and their lives in a small town Texas where everyone knows each other, where gossip is the way to deliver the news, and where lives, loves, and families find their safe haven to nourish and bloom. I'm looking forward to more in this alluring and whimsical series! ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

Sophie's a jilted bride, which, honestly, is just as well as her ex-fiance's love interest is pregnant. Hm... Yeah, that's a chapter best skipped over. But being left at the altar's the least of Sophie's worries when the family business gets investigated by the FBI and she's forced to move in with the rest of her family into her grandfather's ranch in Texas. And you'd think the woman would catch a break. Nope, not a chance. The man she propositions to help her get over the embarrassment of being left at the altar is single and hotter than sin. But he has no interest in playing games with a city girl. Clay's the police chief and has enough on his plate, including his little sister who comes home pregnant and married, surprise-surprise!-to Sophie's ex. If that's not a signal of the fun that's about to begin, I'm not sure what is. Wrangler's Creek is home to a ton of colorful characters like Vita. So, she's a local witch and mom to Sophie's good friend Mila. And chickens. Can't forget the chickens that, for whatever reason, are content to wreck havoc at Clay's house. Vita's attempts at ridding his house of them will make you smile if not laugh. Then there's everyone else in town. They can't seem to keep their comments about Clay and Sophie to themselves. Everyone's got something to say. It was both amusing and annoying, you know? It's obvious some hearts are in the right place but Clay and Sophie needed to work through their attraction themselves. Such is the life in a small town, I guess. As a warning, there is one character you should be aware of. Belle. She's Sophie's mom and mean as hell. She has nothing nice to say about anyone, her own children included. Her bitterness seeps through the pages and annoyed me to no end. I wanted so badly to scribble her out of the book. I didn't like her that much. Maybe she redeems herself in later books. I hope so. Maybe I'll like her then, but not right now. What surprised me was this story didn't have much a romance buildup between Clay and Sophie. The attraction was undeniable but the their relationship progressed fairly quickly. Funny thing, or good thing, is it didn't feel rushed. When they took that chance and said, "Let's do this," they did. They hit the ground running, didn't slow down, and I loved it. I loved this story for everything it is, including the bitter, hateful, spite filled mom. I'm looking forward to reading the other books in this series. It'll be great to see Sophie's brothers find love and happiness too. Complimentary copy received from publisher

This was my first Delores Fossen book. I loved the characters and the story but it did not hold my attention. I wanted to love this book because of the main characters and secondary characters but I didn't. Clay McKinnon sexy and serious police chief has to many things going on in his life to get involved with Sophie Granger even if she offers a no strings affair. They are just to different for anything to work out and they both have way to much baggage. It's to bad they can't keep their hands off each other. Like I said I truly liked the characters so I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. I need to know what happens with Sophie's brothers. *Book Obsessed Chicks Review team

Favorite Quotes: … as soon as he had a name, Clay would run a background check on him. He loved his sister – most of the time anyway – but April was a turd magnet when it came to men. Before the woman even stepped into his office, he caught a whiff of her. Garlic, for sure. Limburger cheese, maybe. And Listerine… Clay wasn’t sure exactly how old Vita was, but she had to be a lot younger than she looked because she had a thirty-year-old daughter, Mila. Yet she looked to be a hundred and sixty. Or maybe that wasn’t actually wrinkles upon wrinkles but instead she was smearing her face with Limburger cheese. You couldn’t always tell if her mother was clued into reality or not. She looked prim and proper as if she should be on one of those TV shows from the sixties, the ones where the moms wore high heels to do housework. Not a hair out of place. Lipstick was a necessity, and she wore hard padded bras that could bruise you when she gave you a hug. Billy Lee’s got that closet phobia thing. Has had it since he was a kid… He got it ‘cause all them bigger boys in junior high used to cram him in his locker and fart on him through the vent holes. In this moment being responsible seemed highly overrated. That likely explained why there were unplanned pregnancies, therapy, and regrets. Mila caught onto the doorframe so she could put on a pair of red high heels normally reserved for movie musicals and cheap hookers. My Review: I adored this humorous and delightful small town romance by Delores Fossen. It was wryly amusing with a twist of intrigue and heap of family drama. Sophie’s wedding day ushered in disaster of epic proportions for the entire Granger family as her fiancé fled in one direction and the considerable family fortune in another. I was instantly hooked on page one when this busy and eventful story took off and kept me engaged, entertained, and smirking throughout. Those Texas Nights was a comfortable read full of quirky characters, a well-paced storyline, a few delicious steamy bits, and considerable levity hiding within the narrative.
