About the Author

Growing up in rural Ontario, Leah Braemel learned to lose herself in the make-believe worlds she found in her mother's books. At the age of seven, she realized she could write her own stories, and in her early teens she discovered her love of romances. Soon all her stories revolved around giving her heroes and heroines their Happy-Ever-After.



Married to her college sweetheart and the mother of two sons, Leah is the only woman in a houseful of men—even their cat is male. Shoving her writing in the closet while she raised her family, she gained some varied and interesting insights while working with a security firm liaising with Toronto's Emergency Task Force and bomb squad and later teaching computers to women escaping abusive relationships.



After a conversation with her eldest son about how he needed to follow his dreams, Leah decided she needed to follow her own advice and make her own dreams of becoming a writer come true. She was thrilled when her first sizzling romance was published in 2009.


Read an Excerpt

December, Northeast England

I concluded, towards midnight in the Powerhouse, it isn't breaking up that kills you. It's the aftermath. This revelation, coming hard on the heels of six or seven shots of JD, seemed momentous. I wanted to communicate it to someone. But that's the problem with the Powerhouse—and the Barking Dog and the rest of the handful of gay dives struggling to hold on through the regeneration of Newcastle upon Tyne's west end—you don't communicate, at least not verbally. A track whose sole lyrics were riverside, motherfucker repeated at intervals across its trippy, bone-shaking bass had been circling round the club for the past ten minutes. If I wanted to talk, I'd have to get up close and personal. Right up against someone's ear.

Maybe I could try it with him. The stereotype there at the bar. While I was at it, I could tell him the rules—because there are rules down here, even for the heaving sea of flesh and muscle fighting it out on the dance floor, assuming their positions and their partners for the night. You don't come here alone four weekend nights in a row, sit there looking the way he did and not expect to be picked up. Not that he seemed offended by the regular attempts. Whatever his method for repelling boarders, it was quiet. Good-natured, even: most of the rejects had come away smiling.

All right. My turn. If he was the archetype of lonely dignity—dark, impassive, bloody beautiful in the industrial style, all lean muscle under his tight black vest, leather jacket slung across the bar beside him—I was my own kind of caricature, perhaps a match for his. Friends, mirrors and an undamaged ego had once told me I was lovely too. Postgrad-student, promising-young-doctor lovely. Wheat-sheaf fair to his dark. I always got my man. The song said, riverside, motherfucker, and it felt like the word of God.

I got to my feet. He was watching me, as expressionlessly as he watched everything and everyone else around here, but I did have his attention. The wheat sheaf got displayed to best advantage if I gave it a casual push back with one hand. I went for the manoeuvre, caught the tinsel banner some festive-minded fuckwit had thought apt to string around the walls of the city's most hard-core pickup joint and brought the whole lot down.

I slumped back into my seat. I didn't have left inside me whatever it took to be mortified, or even amused. I just didn't fucking care. The trip-hammer rhythm went on. Riverside, motherfucker. At the bar, the stereotype had turned so his fine-sculpted profile was all I could see. It was perfectly still. If he was laughing his arse off inside, it was down very deep. Wow. Kind as well as gorgeous. He was definitely breaking every damn rule around here.

Originally posted at: www.whippedcream2.blogspot.com ***** Wanted by two men when society says only one can have you... what do you do? Find yourself in a Texas Tangle. I love a book with a sassy, saucy heroine. Texas Tangle delivers the goods. Leah Braemel's storytelling drew me in from page one and kept me riveted in my seat until the last word. I felt like I was right there with Brett, Dillon, and Nikki. It was like I was reading about my dear friends and going through the struggles with them. Nikki is a great heroine. She's been through hell, but she manages to come out on the other side with grace and pluck. Yes, there are times when she could succumb to the 'woe is me' feelings, but she doesn't totally. I liked that she was willing to admit what her heart wanted, even when she wasn't in complete agreement. Dillon and Brett are forces to reckon with. Both have magnetic personalities and both could be the one she needs. I liked the care they showed to help her believe in human-kind once again. I also liked the humility both exerted when it came to letting Nikki decide who she wanted to love. I closed this book, having laughed, cried, sighed and smiled. Plus the three of them together is really hot. I had to check the screen for singe marks. If you want a story that will stick with you long after the last page, then you need to read Texas Tangle. I give it 4 cherries.

Whew this one is as hot as the Texas heat! I must admit that I loved this book, because of the strong character development. So often with this type of writing, you find more porn than plot, but definitely not the case with this book. With that said, the love scenes are still incredibly steamy! Brett and Dillion are closer than any best friends could be, but the only thing that has ever come between them has left them at odds yet again. Nicole has come out of her divorce stronger, but has a lot to learn yet on standing up for herself. After having all her possessions stolen, these two handsome guys show her how love can really be, but not without some very tough decisions on all their parts. As tension builds they realize that falling in love is the easy, but staying together will take work and compromise for all three.

This had the potential to be a good story, but lacked depth. I liked the characters and the basic storyline, but questions were never answered and when the three of them finally got together, it seemed rushed and their relationship wasn't explored as deeply as it should have been. The story started getting good at the very end!

Very easy reading and very sexy stuff. This book was to hot to handle... two beautiful cowboys, but with nothing to do with cowboy-ing. Lucky lady in the middle of these two step brothers, Dillon and Brett and a very cute story line. I hated Nikki's brother, but that just made it all happen for her. Lucky, lucky woman !!!!Must read.
