Dead Heat Ranch Series Books 0.5 & 1
By Nicole Edwards
New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is heating things up with Boots Optional, a sexy new ménage novella which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch. Grace Lambert is familiar with hard work, long days, and handsome cowboys. She’s been working for her family’s dude ranch since she was old enough to ride a horse and she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. What she is afraid of is the heat that’s been generating between her and not one, but two sexy cowboys who’ve set their sights on her. And each other.
Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller have both had their eyes on Gracie for years, but the feisty cowgirl has managed to keep them at bay. As far as they are concerned, cowboys don’t give up, and neither of them is ready to give up just yet. Not on her and not on the heat that transpires between the two of them.
Find out what happens when the sultry Texas nights get as hot as the fierce Texas days.
Note: This novella was originally featured in the Some Like It Hot Anthology. Although this story has not changed, this novella contains a bonus scene, along with an excerpt from Betting on Grace, DHR #1.
There is nothing that Nicole Edwards could write that I wouldn't love. Every book of Nicole's that I've read (every book she has published to date), has been AMAZEBALLS. From the beginning of each book I am hooked by the way the story is written and the relationships between characters, I can't get enough of her work.
Boots Optional tells the story of Gracie Lambert, Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller. The 3 work and live on Dead Heat Ranch, a Dude Ranch owned by Gracie family. Grant and Lane both have their eye on Gracie, and will try just about anything to get her attention. Gracie isn’t interested, well at least that’s what she’s trying to tell herself. For two years both men have been trying to get Gracie to admit she is attracted to one if not both of them but neither have had any luck at getting so much as a date with her.
Gracie knew both men wanted to at least take her on a date, they have been constantly asking her out for a long time, but do they really want to date her or are they just asking out of pity?
What Gracie doesn’t realise is that both men are 100% serious in their pursuit for her and that they are both attracted to one another as well. When attraction is laid out for all to see the chemistry is just too strong to ignore and it is H.O.T HOT!!!
If you’ve read any of the Alluring Indulgence books you are going to love the new Dead Heat Ranch series. I can’t recall a series that focus’ on a family consisting of only daughters, I have read series where there are only brothers (AI's Walker brothers for example) and series where there is a mixture of brother’s and sister’s in the family and each series there are particular bonds between siblings so I am really looking forward to reading other books in this series to see what the relationships are like between a group of 5 sisters who have grown up on a ranch surrounded by cowboys their entire lives.
Nicole Edwards was put on this earth to write amazing books and for that I will be eternally grateful ♥♥♥♥♥
Betting on Grace
New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is continuing to heat things up with Betting on Grace, a sexy new ménage novel which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch.
The tables have turned on Grace Lambert. For a woman familiar with long days and hard work, she just recently discovered just how hot the sultry Texas nights can get. Finding time to spend with her two smoking hot cowboys, Grant and Lane, isn’t exactly easy, but she’s forging ahead with what has turned out to be the hottest relationship she has ever been in. The true test comes in standing up for what she wants.
Grant Kingsley has landed his feisty cowgirl, Gracie, and an equally sexy cowboy, Lane Miller, but everything outside of his romantic life has gone from routine to chaos in a matter of days. Unfortunately, he’s become rather acquainted with Murphy’s Law as he is inundated with a string of bad luck. His mother is missing, his father, a gambling addict, is worried about only one thing these days, and when Grant refuses to give in, all hell breaks loose on the ranch.
Lane Miller will be the first to admit that he falls in love easily. And he’s done so again, with both Gracie and Grant. Only this time around, he’s not giving up or giving in. Cowboys don’t know what it means to back down and Lane will ensure that the two most important people in his life get all of him, no matter what it takes.
About the Author
Nicole lives in Texas with her husband, three kids and four dogs. It's quite the household and most of the time you'll find her locked away in her office - dubbed the writing cave. When she's not there, you'll probably find her reading or hanging out with the dogs and kids, doing her best to keep them in line. And no, for the record, it doesn't usually work.
I've never been one to talk much about myself. It's difficult, but as the days go by, I'm learning to open up a little. So, I'm going to give it a shot here...
Ever since I was young, I've enjoyed writing. When I was a teenager, I kept a journal. I did that until several years ago, I think. And if I wasn't writing down my thoughts, I was coming up with scenes in my head for various characters who would come and go for whatever reasons. And now, here I am, all these years later, spending my days doing what I love the most. Writing is my full-time job, but it is also my hobby. My creative outlet. It is a true blessing that I have been allowed to do this. I decided to give myself over to writing full-time in December of 2012 and I haven't looked back since. After spending nearly 13 years in the corporate world, it took me a little while to get used to working for myself, but I have to say, I'm loving every second of it.
If I'm not writing, I'm reading. Every single day. My TBR (to be read) list is long and it continues to grow each day thanks to the amazing authors who continue to publish books that we can't get enough of. If you look at my TBR, you'll find books by traditional and independent authors alike. My love of reading started back around a decade ago when I started reading Lora Leigh. Yes, if you want hot, check her out. Some of my other favorites include J.R. Ward, Suzanne Brockmann, Jayne Rylon, Maya Banks, Sylvia Day, Lorelei James, Lori Foster, Jill Shalvis, Jaci Burton, Carly Phillips and the list goes on and on and on.
An interesting fact about me... I don't watch television. Well, aside from the occasional news channel or some home improvement show from time to time. I love movies, but I rarely go see them. I think since I picked up a book, all else has faded away and if I have any spare time whatsoever, I'm going to use it to do what I love.
For those who are curious, Nicole Edwards is a pen name. Although, for the past couple of years, I've been called Nicole so much, I pretty much answer to it always. I didn't select a pen name in order to hide my identity, but rather to give my alternate ego one of her own. Nicole is the part of me that includes all of the secret desires and taboo fantasies. So, technically, yes, she's real. She's my alter ego. The secret part of me me made up of sinfully hot desires and erotic thoughts. If you want to know more about my naughty mind, just check out my books.
