Justice for Boone
(Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes #6)
by Susan Stoker
Date of Publication: September 20, 2016
Sheriff’s Deputy Hayden Yates has worked hard to gain the respect and admiration of her fellow law enforcement officers. She’s succeeded so well, in fact, that she’s become just one of the guys. As her friends slowly begin to meet their soul mates, Hayden longs to be seen as a desirable woman, and not the tomboy she’s always been.
No slouch when it comes to attracting the opposite sex, cowboy Boone Hatcher might want to give it a rest for a while, especially after his last girlfriend accuses him of domestic abuse. Deputy Yates sees right through his ex’s ruse—and Boone sees right through Deputy Yates. Hayden might seem all business, but her need for justice comes from a heart that beats with pure passion.
A few dates turn into something more, and as the couple’s relationship deepens, so do the threats from his ex. It’s up to Hayden to convince Boone the danger is real…before jealous antics escalate to deadly obsession.
** Justice for Boone is the 6th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
BLP REVIEW – Tracy
Domestic abuse from a male POV is definitely something worth writing about to highlight the issue and I really liked the premise of the book. .
I liked Boone and when they got together they were hot! Unfortunately I found myself putting my kindle down more often than I usually would; I couldn’t really connect with Hayden and at times found the writing a little stilted.
I’m sure fans of the Badge of Honor series will love Justice for Boone but it just wasn’t for me and sadly it’s only a 3*……

Hearts of Montana #3
by Jennie Marts
Publication Date: September 26, 2016
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Select, Contemporary Romance
Elusive charmer Cash Walker is a tough-as-nails cowboy, except when it comes to the shy woman who shows up with a pretty smile, a wounded spirit, and a goat riding shotgun in her passenger seat.Recently divorced from an abusive husband, Emma Frank has come home to Broken Falls, Montana. Lost, alone, and unable to escape the bullying tactics of her ex-brothers-in-law, she finds solace and friendship at the Tucked Away farm and with the handsome cowboy who believes in her and who helps her find her own courage.
There’s a darkness in Cash’s past that’s kept him from ever letting anyone get too close, but he can’t seem to stay away from Emma, who seems to be the one to finally break through his tough exterior and steal this cowboy’s heart.
He looked down at her, and his heart swelled with the love and compassion he saw shining in her eyes.
“Thank you,” she said.
“Thank you? What the hell are you thanking me for? For telling you that I’m an emotionally closed-off broken man?”
“For telling me your story.” She reached up and caressed his cheek. “And we’re all broken. We all have things in our past that form who we are now. I thought I was broken, thought my heart was so torn apart that it wouldn’t ever work again, that I wouldn’t ever be able to feel anything real again. And that I’d never be able to care for another man. But meeting you started my heart beating again. And even in the short time I’ve known you, my heart acts like it’s been waiting for you all along.”
Her words flowed through him, like a salve to his bruised and shaken soul. “I haven’t cared enough about anyone since then to want to take the chance on—to risk letting myself get caught up with—to hazard giving them my heart.”
“You can take a chance on me.”
He looked into her eyes, and he believed her. He’d been alone for so long, and she was the first person he’d wanted to try having a relationship with. The first person who made his heart stand up and take notice.
Hell, it wasn’t just his heart that took notice when she was around. Every part of him responded to the simple nearness of her.
Looking at her now, her eyes full of care and her lips slightly parted—rose-colored and full—and just waiting to be kissed.
“I already have.” Leaning down, he took her mouth, captured it in his, kissing her with all the passion and hunger that he felt for her. He’d bared his soul, and she hadn’t gone running.
In fact, she’d snuggled closer and held out her own heart.
And he didn’t want to hurt her. Ever.
If he took her heart, he vowed to protect it, to protect her, to never let her be hurt again.

About Natalie Rios
Natalie can’t sing. Or dance. Or play an instrument. She can’t ride a bike and doesn’t know how to swim or drive. As a result, her husband often asks “Are you sure you’re not really from Mars?” (the answer, in case you were wondering, is no. Unless New York counts as another planet).
When she’s not geeking out at her day job, Natalie can be found attempting to wrangle her overly energetic Westie, baking ridiculously chewy chocolate chip cookies, and watching so-bad-it’s-good reality television shows.
