How to Catch a Cowboy in 10 Days by Kimberly Krey



I'm so happy to announce that book 2 in the Unlikely Cowgirl Series is available now.

I have to say, this book really got me. I related to Ann on a few different levels. At times in my life, I have wished I could speak up more or step out of whatever box I've put myself in, and that made Ann's journey all the more rewarding, even when the unexpected happened. Our cowboy, Trey (you might remember him from Cassie's Cowboy Crave) takes a few leaps of his own and I hope you'll enjoy seeing where they lead. For years I've had readers ask when Trey would see his happily ever after; I'm happy to say his time has arrived at last! I really hope you enjoy How to Catch a Cowboy in 10 days!

Here's the blurb:
There’s no denying Ann Simpson is passive, so when she’s challenged to read a book that could change her life, she eagerly accepts. If she writes a winning article about her transformation, it could earn her a writing slot with Walquest Weekly, taking her career to the next level. And who knows—maybe it could empower her to step out of her romance novels and into her own happily ever after.
Ann packs her bags and her book and heads to Montana where she hopes to reinvent herself. Caught off guard by the cowboy of her dreams, Trey Richardson, Ann falls hard and fast. But does Trey love the real Ann, or the book-made woman she’s invented for the article?

Trey believes his life is complete with a ranch to run, horses to ride, and fresh country air to fill his lungs; but, when Ann steps into the picture, bachelorhood starts to lose its appeal. Yet just as his love for Ann begins to grow, Trey finds out Ann is writing an article about their time together, causing him to question her motives, along with his heart.

Hey guys! The holidays have passed, the kids are back in school, and you've most likely taken your seasonal decorations down. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty particular about how that's done at my house. This year I had a retreat coming up, so I stayed up late the night before to take down the garlands and place certain items in their perfect-for-them box.

It's funny though, have you ever noticed that when someone else steps in and does the job you normally insist on doing it can actually be a good thing? Sometimes they waltz in and discover a simpler way to do a task you've complicated for no reason at all. The fear is that if we don't do it, it won't get done correctly. And while that's sometimes exactly the case, I've learned to let go and let things get done in other ways. I might not prefer the way my kids arrange the dishes in the cabinet, or in the dishwasher for that matter, but it's totally tolerable. And letting go of that control has offered a whole lot of returns over the years, cluttered cabinets aside.

I think the key is getting past initial offenses (did you really not notice how wet these spoons were?) and taking the time to address issues as they come. Sort of like a second chance for both parties. Your kids might not want a second chance to master unloading the dishwasher, but that's okay - we'll give them as many chances as they need. ;)

In love relationships, second chances are harder to come by, which is why second chance romance can be so fulfilling. I've written an entire series dedicated to that very thing, and if you haven't read it yet, now is a great time to start! For a limited time, you can get my entire SECOND CHANCES Series for under $2.

Hope you enjoy! Oh, and be sure to check out the new Texas Titan Romance novel by the wonderful Lucy McConnell! Sweet romance meets hunky football players in this awesome series from authors Taylor Hart, Cami Checketts, and Jennifer Youngblood, as well as McConnell. Be sure to check them out!

The Miracle Groom, by Lucy McConnell ~ Texas Titans Romances

Teo Parata, offensive tackle for the Texas Titans believes in miracles. He sees them every day when he looks into his son’s trusting eyes. Meeting Intern Oakley Bell at the Tiny Titan’s Football Camp was another miracle—at least he though so, until she chewed him out for being irresponsible and rude and demanding. She may have also mentioned something about an “egotistical diva football player” but he's trying to forget that part of the conversation. When he offers to take her to dinner to make up for his mistake, she accuses him of hitting on her and storms off.

Wanting only the best for his son, Teo swallows his pride and begs Oakley to be his nanny. To his relief, she accepts the job on a temporary basis. Teo has two months to convince her to stick around. When he finds out there’s more to this woman than ocean blue eyes and a way with kids, his heart begins to truly beat for the first time since his wife passed away.

Teo puts himself on the line in every football game, taking hit after hit and giving right back, but putting his heart on the line will take more than all his muscles and determination combined—it will take a miracle.

New Holiday Release by Kimberly Krey

THE LUMBERJACK'S YULETIDE BRIDE IS ON AMAZON NOW





I love Christmas romance reads, so I was so excited when the opportunity came to write one for the Country Bride and Cowboy Boots series!

I really enjoyed stepping back into the quaint country charm of Cobble Creek and meeting some new characters along the way. Maddie and Bear have one of those almost-romance pasts, which makes their chance at romance this time, all the better. Hope you enjoy!

GET LUMBERJACK'S YULETIDE BRIDE HERE! JUST 2.99 OR FREE IN KU

Maddie Collins, first grade teacher at Cobble Creek Elementary, is not a man-hater. Sure, her absent father gave men a bad name, and her mother always warned her that high hopes were dangerous things, but Maddie still hopes to find a man who’ll return the love she has to offer. When lumberjack, Bear Schaefer takes an interest in her, Maddie allows her hopes to soar above the tree tops.

Bear Schaefer, aka poster boy for Big Daddy Mills, has been dying to get back to Cobble Creek. As part owner and operator of an environmentally proactive logging company, he has a list of things vying for his attention. But none are quite so alluring as the lovely Maddie Collins. Date after date their connection grows deeper while the sparks grow hotter. Yet just as things become serious between them, a vengeful woman from Bear’s past threatens to tear them apart. With Maddie’s hopes for love so high, and Bear’s love so deep, a fall would be more devastating than a forest fire.

It's Release Day for The Sheriff's Bride!

I'm so honored to be writing with an incredible list of authors in Gelato's Country Brides & Cowboy Boots Series! I can't wait for you to meet these new characters! We've got Jessie Jean, who's as kindhearted as she is stubborn. And Trent, a compassionate guy who knows how to put his foot down as well. He's just not too good at it where Jessie's concerned. ;) I think you're going to like the interaction between these two!



Trent Lockheart might be the new sheriff in town, but he can’t stop Jessie Jean from stealing his heart.
Sheriff Trent Lockheart knew he’d be in for a challenge when he moved from the big city and a large police force to the small Wyoming town of Cobble Creek. But at least he’d be able to stick to his bachelor ways without temptation. So he thought. Cobble Creek isn’t overflowing with young, single ladies, but Jessie Jean—the gorgeous brunette who runs the Country Quilt Inn—proves more tempting than any woman he’s known.

Jessie doesn’t care much for the new sheriff in town. After an explosive first meeting that almost ends in Jessie’s arrest, she’s even more determined to plan on dinner for one for the rest of her life. Sure, the new sheriff is seriously attractive, and after a second, much less dangerous run-in, he might not be that bad, but Jessie has no plan to marry, date, or even let a man into her life. Still, as the days pass, Trent’s surprising charm works past Jessie’s determination, and she finds promise in their budding relationship.

After opening up about the difficulties in her past, Jessie finds that Trent is guarding a dark tragedy of his own, one that might threaten their chance at a future together.

Here's what reviewers have to say!

Treadmill Desk Hack



Check it out!

At a recent RWA conference, a well-known author said that her treadmill desk helped keep her in shape while she wrote. In fact, she had a stationary bike desk as well. I'd never heard of such things! I remember thinking, "I need to get my hands on something like that —and quick!"

The idea stayed somewhere in the back of my head until a thought came to me in the middle of the night because that's when big ideas come to me: What if I can just make one myself? I could work on my edits (for my soon-to-be-released book) while getting my steps all at once.

When the sun came up I marched downstairs, took a long look at my treadmill, and came up with a mental picture of what I'd need to make it work. For mine, I needed only a sturdy board, which I found in our storage room.

From there, I hosted an exercise & edits party with just one guest, two purposes, and three miles under my belt in the first morning. I wasn't going for cardio here. No running shoes or sports bras necessary. I went barefoot in PJs. But it was wonderful, and I just had to share!

How many of you are "counting steps" with a fitbit or something like it? What lengths do you go to to get those steps in? I'd love to hear about your big ideas!

New from a few of my favorite authors:
