Their wedding might be fake, but there’s no faking the mutual attraction.

Texas Montgomery Mavericks, Book 2

Dr. Caroline Graham is happy with her nomadic lifestyle fulfilling short-term medical contracts. No emotional commitments, no disappointments. She’s always the one to walk away, never the one left behind.

But now her great-uncle is gone and her grandmother is on her deathbed, more concerned about Caroline’s lack of a husband than her own demise. What’s the harm in a little white lie? If a wedding will give her grandmother peace, then a wedding she shall have.

Travis Montgomery has one dream left—to build the ranch he and his wife planned before he lost her to cancer. There’s just one thing standing between him and the last bit of acreage he needs—a last living heir who has one traveling foot out the door…and an unusual request that challenges his determination to never again place his heart at risk.

The land he wants in exchange for a faux marriage. Everyone wins. Until things start to snowball…and the hearts they stand to lose are their own.

Warning: This book contains a tortured widower who doesn’t want a wife and an independent doctor who doesn’t want a husband. Hot stuff between the sheets and failed efforts to avoid emotional involvements.

Well done on this book, and you look great in the bright hat!
I don't think being a teen in difficult circumstances necessarily equates with being a jerk, but then I'm a girl and a boy might find it harder to cope and to express himself.
I'd love a cowboy ornament for my tree!

A happily ever after book which will leave me in a great state of mind.

Gayle Pace 10:48am November 14, 2013)

This sounds like such a great book and I would love to read it.
I've been blessed to be raising my three grandsons for the past 11 years (now age 12, 14, 15). Their mother (my daughter) had MS (Multiple Sclerosis) and after caring for her for 10 years she died 2 1/2 years ago. Each day is a new adventure and at times there is generation gap, but they are great boys and I love having them around.

I, like you, have no children, but it was Doctor's orders. Due to the amount of medications I have to take because of my health problems, the Doctor said I wasn't allowed to get pregnant. My health problems would make it difficult to take care of a child anyway. As for my teenage years, before my health problems hit, they were fulfilling for me. I was the youngest of 3 girls, and raised by strict parents, so I had to find an outlet. I decided that I would take my passions, and invest them in music, so I took up the Cello. I was in the Orchestra in school, and was made 1st chair, which is no easy feat. My Parents paid for a tutor to come to the house and give me private lessons one day a week. When I was old enough, I got myself a job, so that I was able to put some in the bank, and purchase things that wouldn't make me look like such a geek ( I got a lot of hand-me-downs ). For the most part, I was a good kid, and didn't cause trouble. I was also the clown of the family, and still am to this day, although not everyone appreciates my jokes! lol Your book sounds like a great read, and I can't wait to get my hands on it!! It's definately on my TBR list, and will be one that I'll be reading one way or the other this Fall!! Congratulations on your book!!
Peggy Roberson 11:47am November 14, 2013)

Just downloaded the book! Cant wait to read it!
Karen Johnston 12:23pm November 14, 2013)

Hi Penny! I'm so glad you've discovered the tour! Glad to have
you along. It can get lonely talking to myself! LOL
Cynthia D'Alba 12:27pm November 14, 2013)

Hi Gloria. Like you, I want a happy ending to a book. That's
one reason I write romance. I want to be smiling as I read the
last lines in a book!
Cynthia D'Alba 12:28pm November 14, 2013)

Love the cover of "Texas Tango"
Lisa Avila 12:28pm November 14, 2013)

Hi Gayle. You are so right! Oh those cowboys! :) They evoke
all sorts of feelings, don't they? :)
Cynthia D'Alba 12:29pm November 14, 2013)

Hi Brenda! Great to see you on another stop! MS is a cruel
disease. I am so sorry for your loss.

WOW on those ages of your grandsons! Bet you have some
interesting days.
Cynthia D'Alba 12:31pm November 14, 2013)

Hi Peggy. Lives can be full and rewarding with and without
children. My life has been truly everything I could ever
dream of. Sometimes I look back at the years and
think...WOW. You are one lucky lady. :)

I hope you enjoy Texas Tango. If you do get a chance to read
it, Please leave a review on Goodreads or Amazon or
Cynthia D'Alba 12:34pm November 14, 2013)

THANK YOU Karen Johnston! I hope you enjoy Travis and
Caroline's love story. Please drop me a line and let me know
what you thought.

the covers I've gotten. Thanks for coming by and leaving a
Cynthia D'Alba 12:36pm November 14, 2013)

I'd love to have an ornament that would make me think about
books/reading! I like the plot of your book! I look forward to
reading it.
Wasanaa Smith 12:55pm November 14, 2013)

I just finished Texas Two Step and loved it! I highly recommend it to all of y'all. I can't wait to get on to the next one.
Tina Reiter 1:26pm November 14, 2013)

Michelle Schafer 1:29pm November 14, 2013)

Susan Coster 5:22pm November 14, 2013)

Texas Tango sounds like a very intriguing book. One where I could just brew some coffee, find a quiet place to snuggle in and read away. Hope to win one of your cute ornaments...love swag and always think of being a winner at something. Thank you
C Culp 6:20pm November 14, 2013)

Texas Tango sounds good! I love cowboy romance books and time travel, so this is sure to please me. I will have to check out your other books as well. I love anything Southwest whether it be jewelry, home decor, or ornaments, so I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for this great giveaway! Love your book covers too!
Linda Luinstra 6:50pm November 14, 2013)

I have a 17-year old daughter in her senior year of high school. She's
preparing to go into college next year. It makes me weepy if I think about it
too much. My 14-year old son is a freshman in high school. I love that the
two of them are at the same school for one year. Every day with them is an
adventure! Your book sounds unique and interesting! Thanks for the
chance to win!!!
Linda Brennan 7:38pm November 14, 2013)

Thank you for the opportunity to win!
Malinda Chaney 8:40pm November 14, 2013)

Ah...teenaged angst. My daughter had always been such a
charmingly independant, level-headed child. One morning she
woke up a teen with all of the irreverent attitude, time
management challenges and back talk. We see glimpses of her
previous self and are assured that the day will come when
the more frustrating side to her will somewhat decrease. Am
so looking forward to that.
G. Bisbjerg 9:23pm November 14, 2013)

I love the sound of this book series and am looking forward to reading it.
Marcy Shuler 10:30pm November 14, 2013)

Would love to win a book!
Jodine Poulin 10:54pm November 14, 2013)

It's true that encouragement is a balancing act. You don't want to destroy the teenagers' dreams but at the same time you want to encourage them and let them know that it requires hard work and what they need to do to achieve it. Thanks for the giveaway.
Kai Wong 12:07pm November 15, 2013)

Thanx for the exerpt. The book sounds great.
Christine Schultz 12:24pm November 15, 2013)

I remember my own teenage years and knowing what I put my parents through helps me have more patience with my own daughter. I think it is really important for the adults that are dealing with them have a lot of love and patience. Can't wait to read this story and see how it all works out for Noah.
Denise Boyd 3:24am November 15, 2013)

This really sounds like a great read..Thanks for sharing
Cate Sparks 12:51pm November 15, 2013)

I'm a transplanted Texan. My whole family... including grandparents were all born in Texas. I especially miss it during the holidays! I went through a really rebellious stage in my teenage years. I definitely sewed some wild oats. :) Thank Goodness I lived to tell about it.
Sandy Fielder 2:38pm November 15, 2013)

Your book sounds like a great read. Looking forward to reading this book.
Carol Woodruff 4:27pm November 15, 2013)

I love all things Texan, and would love to win this book!
Thanks for a chance to get an ornament!
Tabitha Keener 6:24pm November 15, 2013)

Wow, Congrats on your new book: TEXAS TANGO. I like the book
cover too! Your new book sounds fascinating and we love
cowboys and westerns all the time. I grew up in Kansas close
to Boot Hill and Dodge City, KS off the Santa Fe Trail on a
huge farm. I have been living in Austin, TX since 1985 and
would really enjoy winning and reading your new book this
Fall. Thank You very much. Cecilia CECE
