Chasing Charlie Book Tour and Giveaway

Raised in a family of rodeo champions on a South Texas cattle ranch, Charlie wants only one thing: to avoid thrill-seeking cowboys.

Davis Murphy, cowboy wannabe and one of Dallas's most eligible bachelors, needs a pretty and witty faux fiancée so his widowed mother will marry her longtime gentleman friend.

Charlie, his local librarian, seems the prefect choice.

Charlie's first reaction is to run, but she's promised herself to step out of her plain-jane routine.

When Charlie accepts, Davis's plan is set. But now Charlie's sweet ways are challenging his bachelor heart.

"A once innocent plan becomes an entangled romance . Funny and sweet. A most entertaining combination." ~ Carol Bozovich, Rendevzous Magazine

THE TEXAS TWO-STEP, in series order 
Western Pleasure


Charlie Nelson lost her parents when she was eight years old. Being raised on the family ranch by her two older brothers, she left as soon as she was old enough. She took a job as a research librarian which helped her to stay withdrawn and out of the public eye, never taking chances or experiencing life. Her one rule was to never have anything to do with a cowboy. When her roommate gets engaged, Charlie decides it’s time to gradually step out of her shell.

When Davis Murphy’s father died eight years ago, he became owner of Murphy Title by default. As the business becomes successful, Davis looks forward to pursuing his lifelong dream of becoming a cowboy like his grandfather, and owning a ranch. When he discovers that his mother is holding off getting married until she is sure he has settled down, he plots to fool her by introducing a pretend fiancée for one night. After that, his mother would accept her boyfriend’s marriage proposal and leave for Tokyo, and that would be that.

Davis approaches Charlie for help and she reluctantly agrees. But the plan backfires when Davis’ mother wants Charlie to be in her wedding. It goes from one night, to spending the weekend together, and then another. The more Charlie tries to get away, the more Davis wants her near. Will he finally win her heart the way she has won his?

It was amusing when the deception kept escalating, and I could really feel the connection between Charlie and Davis, even if they couldn’t. I think I was as frustrated as Davis was each time Charlie turned away from him. And even though Davis’ mother was unaware of the deception, I got the feeling that deep down she knew. I really enjoyed Charlie’s brothers, Monty Joe and Bobby Gray. The author did a fantastic job with them. I look forward to the next chapter on this blended family.
