Book Description


In her sizzling new series, USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby sets the stage for a passionate reunion under the breathtaking Montana sky.

Cara Donovan’s summer tutoring job is turning out to be a challenge—and not just because of her troubled twelve-year-old student. It’s his uncle Josh who’s the real problem. If problem is the word for an irresistibly cocky, muscle-bound rancher with a taste for tight Levi’s and shameless flirtation. . . .

Cara is nothing like the wallflower Josh King remembers good-naturedly teasing in high school. This Cara is gorgeous, confident, fun. From the moment the fiery teacher steps foot on his family’s Lazy K Ranch, the stubborn playboy is determined to corral her. So what happens when his luscious lover takes over the reins?

The first in a steamy trilogy, Kristen Proby’s enthralling novel is filled to the brim with one hardworking family’s triumphs and challenges, all the wild adventure of the modern West, and a whole lot of titillating fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving Cara, Josh & Seth..... 2 Feb. 2015
By Debi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Absolutely loved it!!!
I read the first Chapter on Amazon as a preview and at the end I was already hooked - so I purchased so I could read the rest.

I was not disappointed at all, I think I got to the 3rd Chapter and already purchased the 2nd & 3rd book in this series.

The story is about 3 main characters Josh, Cara & Seth

This story is set on a Ranch on the outskirts of Cunningham Falls.

Seth is Josh's nephew and he gets dumped off by his mother to live with Josh & his grandparents - for good.
Seth's Dad - Zack (Josh's twin brother) is currently serving in the army - but unknowingly to Seth he is due to come home... not going to spoil.

Cara is a teacher in town and is asked to tutor Seth for the Summer - she went to school with both Josh & Zack
but secretly has had a crush on Josh since High School.
Cara hasn't seen Josh over the years & the butterflies start churning.... the sexual tension between Cara & Josh well
even I was getting flustered.
All of a sudden Cara's house is destroyed from a tree going through the roof from the worst storm the town as had -
with her still inside the house!
Josh offers his spare room at his house and from there there is so much sexual tension it's maddening -
"If he touches me one more time, I swear I'll combust"

Cara is feisty, but not overly. She was bullied in High School and doesn't think much of herself & cannot believe that Josh wants only her - a great character.
Josh was the complete alpha male with a heart of gold - his love for the Ranch & his nephew.
The way he wants Cara to believe that she is the one for him though she doesn't believe it herself - is truly romantic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kristen Proby knows how to write!! 27 July 2014
By Jo Webb
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Kristen is perfect at writing HOT guys! She is amazing at writing a gripping storyline! She is supreme at writing your sweet, typical, insta-love story with a twist or two thrown in there for good measure kind of books!

I have read a lot of her books and devoured each one. This book, the first in a new series, is no different!

It didn't take me long to attach myself to the story and engross myself completely into the lives and loves of Josh King and Cara Donovan.

They grew up together but didn't really stay in touch despite both living and working in the same, small area of Montana. Their paths cross soon into the story and we are thrown head first into their relationship and I gobbled up every page! The story flowed seamlessly and I enjoyed reading the book from dual perspectives. It's always good to get inside the head of the alpha male!!

Cara shows tough love and her inner strength is tested to the limits and Josh was there to be her knight in shining armour when she needed him the most. This catapulted them into their relationship and by the looks of things, it was a blessing in disguise. I loved their banter and the whole story was one big heart warming moment.

I read the book within a day and experienced many emotions. I felt sad for the back story to Josh's nephew, Seth who was an integral part to the reunion of Cara and Josh and continued to be a constant feature in the story. I adored how Cara dealt with Seth and his problems and cried alongside the whole King family when things came to a head.

The conclusion to the story brought everything together perfectly and I am still smiling thinking about it :)

Thank you Kristen for another sweet and loving story; perfect for an afternoon read when you don't want anything too dark or heavy!

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good read, but wanted more... 21 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
3.5 Stars

I had a good time reading this, a great bunch of characters, you get to know the supporting characters a little too and I loved myself a little bit of Ty. (Cara's best friend Jill's Brother).

I have to tell you at one point, i was that annoyed with Josh, i wanted Ty to swoop in and take Cara and runaway into the sunset with him!!! But i won't spoil.

I loved the relationship between Seth & Cara, that was a really wonderful part of the book, and more so when Zack his Dad came back. A real sense of family and community to this whole story and even the local mean girls played a part!

The relationship between Josh & Cara was sweet and sexy at times, the first kiss, the second kiss ;-)holy smokes!!! But Josh was also an Alpha male, so it is also about showing his woman how he will take care of her, worship only her and marking his ground to others that he loves her, that they are together, which is HOT to a certain extent, but I felt he took it to the extremes and his testosterone levels got way out of control and hit JERK levels. I would slapped him for some of his comments! I think he got away with some of them far too easily.

Some touching moments, beautiful visuals, a bit of drama, great friends, and I am so excited for the next book. This has set the ground for the next characters and I am beside myself for Ty!! But that is why for me it is only a 3.5, I was more in love with the secondary characters than the main ones.
