Chelsea Crawford Collier is a high school history teacher
who lives with her mom and dresses decades older than her age. She’s proud to be a Crawford, a member of one
of Marietta’s First Families, and knows that her roots run deep in this
town. For the past year she’s been
raising money to turn the Marietta Railroad Depot, which is a symbol of the
Crawford family’s many contributions to the town, into a museum until she finds
out that it has been sold to Texas bad boy, Jasper Flint. To make matters worse, he wants to turn it
into a microbrewery. Deciding to take
matters into her own hands, Chelsea confronts Jasper and tries to convince him
why turning the depot into a microbrewery is not only a bad idea, but
disrespectful to the people of Marietta, Montana.
What Chelsea didn’t expect was that her intent to confront Jasper
would instead turn into a scandal of sorts in this small town. When Chelsea is seen on the back of Jasper’s
motorcycle, the people of Marietta start talking. It doesn’t take long for word to make its way
to Chelsea’s mother. And she is far from
pleased that her daughter is not only the talk of the town, but that she is fraternizing
with the enemy. Despite her mother's silent treatment, which is much worse than any verbal bashing she could unleash, Chelsea knows that she had to choose between what her family stands for and what her heart was telling her to do.
The connection between Chelsea and Jasper is undeniable, but
Chelsea also knows that she’s never been the desirable type. Trying to protect her heart, she tells
herself that this is temporary and knows that she has to put an end to this
affair and focus on convincing Jasper to do the right thing and turn the depot
into a museum. But can she walk away
from the passion that she feels towards him?
And will Jasper succumb to her pleas for the depot?
Tempt Me, Cowboy, the first book in The Copper Mountain Rodeo Series, is a breath of fresh air. I love that it’s set in a small town where the
people are so close and that history is of great importance. I loved
Chelsea’s character, her feisty attitude and passion for her family. I also fell in love with Jasper’s bad boy
attitude and sexy cowboy style. I couldn't get enough of this book. I absolutely LOVED it. This
book is a must read for any cowboy fan.
I was tempted and know that you will be too!
Megan Crane is a New Jersey
native who had great plans to star on Broadway, preferably in Evita, just like Patti LuPone. Sadly, her inability to wow
audiences with her singing voice required a back up plan. Accordingly, she
graduated from Vassar College and got her MA and PhD in literature from the
University of York in England. She wrote her doctoral dissertation on AIDS
literature, mostly so she could wallow in her obsession with the remarkable
multi-media artist David Wojnarowicz and her idol, the bitter and hilarious
David Feinberg. After many years in the rain and subject to the whim of seasons,
she followed the sun to Los Angeles, where she lives with a dog, a cat, two
crazy kittens, and an artist named Jeff. She is still plotting her Broadway
