LOOKING FOR TROUBLE
After surviving near bankruptcy at the hands of her manager, country singer Jess Sparks is on the road to recovery. She's hired to sing at a ranch retirement party on her birthday, and meets a sexy, long-legged rodeo cowboy who whets her whistle and more. On a dare from her best friend, Jess decides to give herself a birthday present. When she finds out afterwards that she's gotten a bonus and is one of the two-percent club that condom boxes warn about, she is both thrilled and horrified at the same time.
Her career is sidelined for a while to welcome her precious angel into the world, but Jess gets right back on the road. When that road leads to a wedding gig at the same ranch where she'd met the cowboy, she's a little freaked out, but takes it, because the odds are low she'll see him again. The man without a name, is a tumbleweed and had only been a guest at the party.
When Jess arrives there to find out he's not only there--he's now the ranch manager--she almost turns her van around. But she needs the money for Angel, and he doesn't know about the baby, so she thinks she's safe. Her luck is still not running, though. She didn't count on the cowboy being smarter than the average saddle bum, but he is. Not only does Wade Roberts quickly put two and two together to figure out that Angel is his daughter, instead of running like most men would, he demands a place in his daughter's life, and by osmosis hers.
Used to making her own decisions for herself and the baby, can Jess allow that to happen? If she doesn't, will he try to take Angel away? Things get thicker when country music industry vultures get their claws into her and she might lose her daughter anyway. Will Wade help her, because he's the only one who can? Or will he let them have her, so he has a clear path to custody of Angel with her out of the way?
A western romantic suspense series with hot cowboys, a dash of suspense and a lot of southern humor--the perfect recipe for Trouble. All of the books in the Texas Trouble series can be read as standalone novels.

Love this one
Love the series, hate Jess Sparks. The writing, itself is great. It definately keeps your interest. I've enjoyed all the books, including this one; however, I have just finished reading this entire series, and the one thing that i keep coming back to is how much I loath Jess Sparks. Jess is a new mother, who suffers from post- parteum depression. I think that it was great that the author covered this very common, but rarely talked about disorder. Perhaps it will help others out there that don't understand what is happening to them. However, by the end of the book I was left feeling as if Jess had a whole lot more emotional issues that she needed to deal with than just a case of baby blues. Jess was incredably selfish, and self-involved. All she cared about was hoarding her baby, no matter the cost. She never even stopped to consider the negative effects her selfishness would have on the child she claimed to love so dearly. No mother, who truely loves her child, would intentionally keep that child from a loving, involved father who was eagar to share parental and financial responsiblity. In the end, I felt sorry for Wade. I would never wish to be the person saddled with a spouse so emotionally unstable. Not a happy ending, in my opinion.
