Book Description

Revised Edition 8/2015
Double Dutch Ranch Series: Love at First Sight #1

The Lighter side of romance. Sensual and sexy. Cowboy Boss and his Destiny: Warm your heart and give your nerve endings a tingle at the same time.

Tristan Carlson does the best he can to raise his four-year-old daughter on his own. His mother remains on the Double Dutch to lend a hand--giving him the ability to maintain the ranch, tend to his horses, and keep up his small-time ranching magazine. His attractive, new assistant is everything he wants in a woman, including her ginger-red hair. But from his experience with women lately, he's learned that some don't want a ready-made family. This one seems different, and he's falling hard. But, there's his little blue-eyed girl, and he'll protect Destiny's heart with everything within him. Until he knows for sure...

Living the good life in a big city for many years, Nora Trinity ends up a statistic after the magazine she works for makes cutbacks. Despite a family betrayal from her past that still needs mending, she moves back home to the small town of Canyon Junction, Arizona, with forgiveness on her mind. When she is hired by a local rancher to help with his ranching magazine, she finds herself profoundly attracted to him. The thing is, her sexy boss comes as a package deal, and his little girl is immediately drawn to her. It's not just about two hearts taking a chance now--or two people falling in love...

    More About the Author

    Welcome. Thanks for visiting.

    PLEASE SCROLL down on the book pages if you're interested in reading additional reviews.

    Most of my writing consists of sensual contemporary western romance with strong family ties, an occasional paranormal romance, and dramatic romantic fiction.

    My dramatic novels are emotional and compelling and characters don't usually have an easy time getting what they want, but their reward is sweet.

    In a lighter style I prefer to write more romantic and sensual love stories without a lot of conflict and drama.

    ~~Hey, Cowboy #2

    I love having the ability to put thoughts into words. Other writers have always been my inspiration and inspire me to keep my eyes on my goal. Growing up an avid reader, I still believe today, you can't be a writer if you're not a reader.

    Visions of Enchantment and Enchantment's Embrace, are no longer in print. They might be revised and brought back at a later date.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Overdone 17 Mar. 2014
    By Joannie
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I found this book too heavy on dialogue. The characters are all a bit too "nice". There is a lot of lovey dovey stuff. I did read the whole book, but it's a bit tame.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Gem of a keeper! 7 May 2014
    By The Romance Reviews - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Reviewed by Angie Just Read...

    Putting a failed relationship and the loss of her job behind her, she headed back to her hometown in hopes of building a new life. He was in desperate need of a reliable assistant to help him keep his small magazine business going so he could continue running his family's ranch and make time for his young daughter. Neither was looking for love, but sometimes it finds you anyway.

    When Nora Trinity paused on the way to a job interview to assist a stranger who'd locked his keys in his truck with his sleeping child inside, it seemed fate had put her in the right place at the right time. For, as it turned out, Tristan Carlson wasn't only a father who needed to gain entry into his truck; he was also the ranching magazine publisher who'd scheduled an interview with Nora that very day for a job she desperately needed in order to build a new life for herself.

    Single father Tristan felt an immediate attraction to warmhearted Nora, but he was too busy with raising his daughter Destiny, and running a ranch and magazine to find the time for dating or a relationship. But hiring Nora helped him in more ways than he'd ever foreseen, and his daughter, not to mention his mother, welcomed Nora's presence into their home and their lives. Nora fit; she connected, and she sparked a dream in Tristan that he'd long put aside and quietly denied.

    As for Nora, returning to live in Canyon Junction, Arizona, a town where she had family roots and little else, was a way to not only rebuild her life but to attempt to reconcile a painful past that still had the ability to hurt her disillusioned heart. And, as Tristan and his daughter helped Nora make new memories and set aside the pain of the past, a future Nora never thought possible began budding to life in the embrace of Tristan Carlson and the environs of Canyon Junction.

    Author Mary J. McCoy-Dressel soundly convinced me of her storytelling abilities when I read Howdy, Ma'am, a contemporary western she peppered with heart, heat, excitement and drama. But in COWBOY BOSS AND HIS DESTINY, Ms. McCoy Dressel shows she has the writing strengths and versatility to change things up and produce an equally enjoyable contemporary romance that focuses on the everyday matters of work, family, home, and, once again, the heart. I never grew bored with this unfolding tale of love that developed at a pleasing and natural pace, nor the quiet revelations that were revealed about two hearts destined to find one another and set a course for the future.

    If you're looking for a yummy, feel-good read that has all the elements of a fine romance told at an easy pace, prepare your hammock and a cool drink, pray for a gentle breeze, and lay back and enjoy this gem of a keeper. It's solidly enjoyable.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Same wording/phrases/feelings/actions over and over again. Could not wait ... 11 Aug. 2015

    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Same wording/phrases/feelings/actions over and over again. Could not wait until this book was finished. Am a little curious what happens next but I keep going back to how I felt when I was reading this book. I skipped over so many sections because it was so redundant.
