Overview

A Match Made In Texas (Contemporary Western Romance) by Anne Marie Novark

AUTHOR'S WARNING: This is the hotter and sexier version of A MATCH MADE IN TEXAS. The love scenes are steamier and more graphic. For a sweeter read, check out A MATCH MADE IN TEXAS in The Diamondback Ranch SWEETER Series.

BLURB: When Austin McCade�s wife dies, a vital part of him dies, too. The sexy single dad devotes himself to his motherless daughter and his work on the Diamondback Ranch. For twelve years, he ignores life and women . . . until a new pretty schoolteacher moves to town.

From the moment Theresa Rogers arrives in Salt Fork, Texas, people warn her about the lonely widower. He�s a hopeless case, a lost cause. But Theresa sees beneath the crusty exterior of the man to the deep emotions and his enduring loyalty. Can she pierce the impenetrable wall surrounding his broken heart? Will she be able to vanquish the ghost who keeps him from loving again?

EXCERPT:

Theresa cleared her throat. "Um, would you like to come in? There's coffee. It's fresh."

He shouldn't stay. He should get the hell out of Dodge. "Sure, why not." Removing his Stetson, Austin stepped across the threshold, brushing against her as he passed. The heat from her body nearly scorched him.

She closed the door and stood with her hand on the knob, facing him. She bit her bottom lip, worrying it with her teeth.

Austin wondered if she regretted inviting him in. Had it been on impulse? Did she realize how attractive and appealing he found her? Did she know she was playing with fire?

He was fast losing the battle raging inside of himself. He wanted this woman. He didn't want to think of the reasons he should keep his hands off her. He was a man. She was a woman. A very desirable woman.

Moving closer, he stared down at her and tipped her chin up. "I don't think either of us really wants coffee."

"What do you want?" Her voice sounded husky. Reminding him of darkened rooms, fluffy pillows.

Austin pulled her into his arms. "Only this." He took her mouth in a searing kiss . . .

A Match Made in Texas is the third book in my Diamondback Ranch Series featuring the four McCade brothers--Dallas, Cameron, Austin, and Tyler--and their sister, Tori. I set the books in the rugged ranch land of the Texas Panhandle where I visited my grandparents on their farm every summer as a kid growing up. They're gone now, but the memories live on.

Remember: Life's too short NOT to love a Texan!

Loved book 3 of The Diamondback Ranch series. Austin and Theresa's story was filled with just as much of that sweet sexual tension as the first two. Since we have had the pleasure of reading about the McCade family through Cameron, Dallas, and now Austin's story, I sure hope we don't have to wait long for Tyler's and Tori's, the only female, story of love finally found.

Personally, I did not like this book as well as book one or two, and it is only barely over 100 pages.... The story just drags on and on, never really going anywhere until the predictable end is in sight. I will purchase book four, but this new trend of offering us "bits and pieces" of what would normally be considered a complete novel is getting old. By the time i read the complete "series", I will have $13.00 into it - a bit rediculous for approx. 500 pages total...... These little novellas being billed as something more are just not fair!

The Diamondback Ranch is a great series. This book is an easy read and you want all the complications the characters face to work out so they can be together. If you love tough, rugged and sexy cowboys then you will love to learn about Austin and all of his brothers! I love Anne Marie Novark books and look forward to more.

How touching and romantic Austin still couldn't get over the loss of his first love. It is awesome that the child she died giving birth to is the one to give him the kick in the pants he needs to try living again. Theresa is a great character, perfect for him. Glad she had the gumption to hold tight and be patient for 2 years. The love scene at the dance was so amazing, the risk of getting caught just made it hotter! The steamy date that followed was incredible! To bad it took such an almost tragidy moment to open his eyes and heart again. Each brother is diffrent, so are the women who love them. Sure hope Tylers lady in book 4 is as feisty as his character needs. Can't wait to read about the little sister and her mechanic too. Maybe mom's story would make for a nice 6th book.

This one in the series seemed to drag on. He was to mad and it ruined the story for me. Hopefully number 4 is up with the first two.
