Review: Long, Hot Texas Summer by Carolyn Brown

Product Details

A sassy redhead with an axe to grind…
After catching her husband kissing another woman in the barn, Loretta Sullivan Bailey left Lonesome Canyon Ranch and swore she’d never come back. But when her daughter threatens to drop out of college to become a rancher’s wife, Loretta refuses to let her baby make the same mistake she did. She returns to the ranch, determined to get her daughter back in school by the summer’s end…and resolute on ignoring her feelings for her ex-husband.
A bullheaded but oh so sexy cowboy…
A cowboy from his hat to his boots, ruggedly handsome rancher Jackson Bailey is none too pleased that his feisty—and gorgeous—ex-wife has suddenly shown up seventeen years after their divorce. But despite all their fighting and fussing, the two stubborn former lovers soon discover that old flames burn the hottest. Can they finally put aside their differences and find happiness together…forever?


Okay, it's true I have a weakness for sassy redheaded heroines, must be because I feel such an affinity with them. I can't say as if Loretta and I had anything in common besides our hair colour. I have to say I don't know where this woman got the strength to walk away from her sweet and sexy first love. I'll be honest I chose this book by the author's name alone, She just has the most wonderful way of spinning tales of larger-than-life cowboys and the women they love. So I didn't even read the blurb and if I had I probably would have passed it up because I am not a fan of stories about lovers being reunited, especially if they have been previously married to one another. But I got an absolutely wonderful story that was fair with both parties of the failed relationship and left me feeling happy and after all that's what a good romance should do for a reader. The supporting characters and the setting made this hot Texas read a fantastic choice for every season.
