Kyle Gilchrist never knew who his father was; he's made a
life for himself as a drinking, drifting, bull rider on the
rodeo circuit. Celia Lawson used to be the pesty younger
sister of his friend, but for the last few years, Kyle
doesn't see her as just somebody's kid sister. He sees a
sexy, lean, muscular barrel racer with a hip length blonde
When Celia is on pain pills for bruised ribs, she
and Kyle have too much to drink, and they get married in
Vegas. The next day, Kyle is shocked to hear that he has a
father who never wanted to know him -- but who has left him
money and a ranch. Although Celia initially insists on an
annulment, Kyle keeps pushing her to give him more time.
Their long history and physical attraction expands into a
working partnership and steamy love life over the six
months that Celia agrees to remain married.
Celia seems to be lost, vulnerable, and still carrying her
young girl's crush for Kyle. Lorelie James really drew me
into ONE NIGHT RODEO because of Kyle's 100% revelation that
Celia was his only love -- the only person he needed in
Many readers might miss the story in between the

All it takes is one night to change a cowboyâ€™s lifeâ€¦
Barrel racer Celia Lawson knows better than to tangle with
bull rider Kyle Gilchrist. The sexy cowboyâ€™s love â€˜em and
leave â€˜em ways have earned him a reputation on the rodeo
circuit, and heâ€™s always seen her as his best friendâ€™s kid
sister. But after one wild, tequila-fueled night, Celia
wakes up to find out sheâ€™s gotten herself hitchedâ€”to a man
she never should have married!
When Celia insists on an annulment, Kyle has no good reason
to say noâ€”except he isnâ€™t ready to let go of his new bride.
But then Kyle inherits a sprawling Wyoming ranch, and seizes
the opportunity to enlist Celiaâ€™s help. She agrees to lend a
handâ€”with two conditions: He has to get up to speed as
a rancher within six months; then theyâ€™ll get a
divorce. And their marriage will be in name only.
Kyle gives in to Celiaâ€™s demand, yet he's ready to prove to
her he has what it takes to turn their one night rodeo into
a lifetime of loveâ€¦.
