Jodi LintonPRETTY RECKLESSHowdy Folks,

Let’s kick this cowboy hunting party off with a bang! I just can’t believe I finally get to share sassy, pistol-packing deputy sheriff Laney Briggs and tight-jeans wearing Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson with y’all. It has been a long road, but well worth it. I mean, I would be crazy to say I didn’t enjoy writing about sexy, tight-assed jean wearing cowboys. And to throw in a sassy, pistol-packing deputy into the bunch…well yeah, I’m in total bliss.

Okay, I know why y’all are really here… did I hear someone say, “COWBOYS!” I’m sorry, I can’t hear ya? Tell me. How many of you enjoy a good-timing cowboy or two? I know I do. Maybe it’s the narrow-hip swagger. Nah? It has to be the drawl. Although that deep, southern twang can be deadly to quite a few ladies’ panties. Just the thought of that smooth, velvety voice whispering in your ear can make you go weak at the knees. Good grief, we got off track real fast. Fan me please. Okay, some of y’all might’ve heard about a new cowboy strutting into town, and yeah the rumors are true…he’s lethal. Ready to kick up your boots, grab a cold one, and learn a thing or two about this bad-ass Texas Ranger?

Give me a moment. No pressure please. I’m thinking. What am I willing to spill about Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson? Hmmm….Well, he looks damn fine in a pair of Wranglers. He holds a soft spot for a sassy mouth deputy, which almost always puts him in hot water. And did I mention he has a bone to pick with a few old friends.

As you cowboy-crazy girls already know, the rodeo doesn’t get going until the cowboys show up, and that’s exactly the type of rough and reckless ride Deputy Laney Briggs and the whole Pistol Rock gang are in for when this bad-boy steps into town. I’m just over the moon now that I get to share this with all of y’all.

Now, since we’re on the topic of sexy, bad- boy cowboys…who’s your all-time favorite? Two commenteres giving up hot cowboys will win an e-book of PRETTY RECKLESS.


Welcome to Pistol Rock, Texas where everyone knows secrets last about as long as the sporadic west Texas rain showers.

Laney Briggs has long been considered reckless, but she’s turned herself around—she’s respectably engaged and she’s become a Pistol Rock deputy sheriff. Everything’s fine until a dead body turns up and her ex, Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson, decides to stick his boots into the town’s first murder case.

Laney will be damned if she lets Gunner trample all over her turf and her chance at a quiet, contented life. His seemingly endless ability to undermine her resolve and her libido was only outdone by her constant urge to butt heads with him. But when the bodies start to pile up, Laney has to ask the lethal bad boy for a hand—and a truce in exchange for his help.

Having an ex-boyfriend as an ally might not be the best idea, but Laney has always been pretty reckless…
