Title: The Trouble With Texas Cowboys
Author: Carolyn Brown
Genre: Contemporary (Western) Romance
Can a girl ever have too many cowboys?
No sooner does pint-sized spitfire Jill Cleary set foot on Fiddle Creek Ranch than she finds herself in the middle of a hundred-year-old feud. Quaid Brennan and Tyrell Gallagher are both tall, handsome, and rich...and both are courting Jill to within an inch of her life. She's doing her best to give these feuding ranchers equal time-too bad it's dark-eyed Sawyer O'Donnell who makes her blood boil and her hormones hum...
Jill’s gaze started at Sawyer’s eyelashes, which totally fascinated her. How could a thick bunch of dark hair be so seductive? Finally she let her eyes travel past his nose and to his lips. The music in her head wasn’t haunting, but it wasn’t upbeat either. It was like the background music to an old gospel hymn, peaceful with the promise of something eternal.
When she got to his slightly parted lips, the chemistry between them reached a brand-new height. His knuckles moved to trace her jawline, and then his hand splayed out, palm resting on her cheek, pinky teasing her ear, the rest holding her neck steady as his lips closed over hers.
Jill cupped his cheeks in her hands and took the first step to deepen the kiss. Desire fanned the fires of arousal until they were both panting. He moved from her lips to her neck, nuzzling, tasting, driving her crazy.
With one tug, all the snaps of his shirt popped open, and she buried her face in the soft black hair covering his bare chest. He groaned, and she shifted her weight until she was sitting in his lap.
It should not happen, but it was going to. Plain and simple. She wanted Sawyer. She needed him, and not even an act of God was going to stop what they’d started.

This book started off hilarious and it just got better. You have a shotgun wielding woman, two feuding families, three matchmaking aunts, and four people who can't take no for an answer.
Its a light, funny read that will have you turning the pages like there is no tomorrow. Jill Cleary is moving into her aunt's farm to work and staying at the bunkhouse. Unbeknown to her, Sawyer O'Donnel is also staying at the bunkhouse as another ranch worker. So, how do you great your future housemate, that's an easy one, with the barrel of a shotgun pointed straight at him.
These two eventually team up to stop the advances they both receive the different members of the Gallagher and Brennan families. Eventually their team up leads to more and these two find they are perfect for each other.
The story was hilarious, the drama the two feuding families bring into Jill and Sawyer's lives adds for some serious payback pranks that will have you holding your sides.
Although this is book two in the series it can be read as a stand alone so don't fret that you might miss something. This was my first Carolyn Brown book and I will definitely be reading more; as well as hoping we see more in the Burnt Boot series, maybe a Gallagher-Brennan union (fingers crossed on that one).
