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.
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.
