No strings attached is pretty much Lucky McCord’s calling card in Spring Hill, Texas, but when family is on the line, this cowboy’s honor and heart are about to get lassoed, tied and branded

Every family needs its black sheep, and Austin “Lucky” McCord is happy to oblige. The bad-boy bull rider lives fast and loose, until his business partner leaves him an unexpected bequest. Suddenly Lucky is sharing custody of two children with Cassie Weatherall, one of the few homegrown women he hasn’t bedded. And not from lack of trying…

Cassie fled her messy past to become a celebrity therapist in LA. So why does it feel so right to come back and share parenting duties—and chrome-melting kisses—with a man she’s striven to avoid? Loving Lucky always seemed like a sure bet for heartache. But for this perfectly imperfect family, Cassie might just gamble with everything she’s got.

 

Review

Lots of humor, engaging characters and enjoyable dialogue are some of the things to look forward to in this installment of the McCord Brothers.

Lucky McCord considers himself the screw-up of the McCord family and has played it up by living a fast and loose lifestyle until now. His business partner has died and her last request was for him have joint custody of two children with her granddaughter until a more permanent solution can be found for them. A difficult proposition considering that Lucky prefers to keep his visits home brief and add in the fact that his co-guardian is the one person who wouldn’t give him the time of day, it’s shaping up to be a trying period for Lucky.

Cassie Weatherall is not in a good place. Plagued by the loss of a client and the resulting fallout, coming back to Spring Hill to share guardianship duties with Lucky is not ideal, but for her grandmother she’ll do it and hope that she can successfully keep Lucky at a distance. 

 I enjoyed everything about this story and it’s not just about the growing romance between Lucky and Cassie and their parenting skills or lack thereof. It’s the children, the town, the relationships and interactions, the secondary characters and my favorite by far was Dixie Mae.

Ms. Fossen did an amazing job with the writing and I found myself bursting into loud laughter several times as I read this book. I think LONE STAR NIGHTS is perfect for anyone looking for a laugh and some small town fun.

 

 

About Delores Fossen

When Delores Fossen was a child, she used to sneak around and collect fingerprints, hair strands and fibers left by family members and guests. At age eight, she solved a crime. Well, sort of. When someone nibbled off the ear of her chocolate Easter bunny , she searched for clues and soon discovered that her sister had chocolate bunny breath. With that "case closed," Delores believed she’d discovered her calling--she wanted to be a Texas Ranger or FBI agent. But after realizing that she just wouldn't be very good at chasing down bad guys, she opted for a slightly different career path--she creates fictional cowboy cops and other law enforcement officers. Writing romantic suspense is something she enjoys immensely, and it has earned her the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice and Booksellers Best Awards, and she was a finalist for the prestigious Rita.

Married to an Air Force colonel and the mother of four children, Delores has lived in England and all over the U.S. She’s had a variety of careers and jobs: an Air Force captain, a special ed teacher and a rehab counselor. None was as fun or challenging as the time she’s spent as a stay-at-home mom. She still collects fingerprints, hair strands and fibers every time she dusts or vacuums, which isn’t very often.
