Texas Outlaws: Cole-Kimberly Raye

Texas Outlaws: Cole Kimberly Raye Harlequin Blaze, Feb 18 2014, $5.50 ISBN: 9780373797929 The ladies of Lost Gun, Texas target Cole as the last eligible Chisholm now that women roped in his “outlaw” siblings Billy and Jesse. The townsfolk classify Nicole Barbie as a bad girl because the acorn falls near the tree; her mother, owner of the Giddyup honkytonk, has quite the reputation and Nikki does nothing to change their minds. Ironically, no one knows Nikki attends culinary training with plans to become a chef in Houston. Her family intrudes on her goal while Nikki notices the good girls pounce on wary Cole. She suggests to him that they pretend to be a couple so each can focus on what they want. Chisholm accepts her relationship of convenience. Neither was prepared to fall in love. The third Chisholm Texas Outlaws contemporary (see Billy and Jesse) is a wonderful romance between the not so bad girl and the not so good bronc rider. Although Nikki’s pretentious elitist attitude can be distracting, fans will enjoy this heated tale. Harriet Klausner
