The Celtic Cowboy, part of the Bear Creek Rodeo series, is now LIVE in KINDLE UNLIMITED!
Another Kearney brother has arrived from Ireland to concur your heart!
In Texas, two things are gospel – football and rodeos. Growing up as the daughter of a football legend made me practically royalty, but it’s not a crown I’m interested in. Football life isn’t for me, no matter how hard my family pressures me with their motto of “If you can’t be them, marry them.” Living in the shadow of my football star brothers was exhausting and I eventually became invisible all together. I bide my time working at my family’s car dealership until I gather up the nerve to tell them that I’m living life on my own terms. I have my own dreams and they don’t include marrying a football player or a cowboy.
My resolve was strong, until a cocky Celtic cowboy sauntered into my life. Ryan Kearney might not wear a football jersey, but wearing a cowboy hat and chaps was just as lethal. Devilish good looks with a mouth that could even charm the panties off a nun, I knew I was in trouble when he set his sights on me.
A roll in the hay with a playboy cowboy is the last thing I need… especially when I’m already falling for him.
As an up and coming bull rider, I’ve learned that rodeo life is grueling, but it’s the life I’ve chosen. The pounding of your heart and the thunder of applause that rings in your ears when that buzzer calls out the end of the eight seconds is a sound like no other. My dream to be a professional bull rider in the American Pro Rodeo Circuit is finally becoming a reality when my brother and I leave Ireland to compete for our shot at Nationals in Las Vegas. If I want the title of the best bull rider in the world, being mediocre isn’t enough. To be the best, you have to beat the best, which requires me living, breathing and sleeping rodeos. Being in a committed relationship isn’t even on my radar. So I do casual relationships and it seems my notoriety as the Playboy Cowboy preceded me to America. What can I say? The ladies love cowboys and I love the ladies.
Charming them into bed is my second favorite pastime, so when the warm brown eyes of Adeline Murphy lock on mine and burn with yearning, I know I have her right where I want her. Except I don’t. The sexy spitfire seems immune to my charm and makes me work hard for her attention.
The chase has become a game – one that I’m determined to win and to make her mine. I wasn’t looking for forever, but I can’t imagine my life without her.
Bear Creek Rodeo is a series of contemporary western insta-love novellas written by bestselling authors Jennifer D. Bokal, Amy L. Gale, Sara Jolene, Jessica Marin and Kirsten Osbourne.
Can two people push through their insecurities and let love save them from themselves?
Addison Murphy is the funny friend, the girl you grab a beer with—the girl voted most likely to start her own sweatshirt line. And now that one of her best guy friends is getting married, she’ll add “groomsman” to that list, too. She’ll get through this wedding if it’s the last thing she does. Just don’t ask her to dive for any bouquet.
When Tucker Crawford returns to his small hometown, he expects to see the same old people, feel comfort in the same old things. He certainly doesn’t expect to see the nice pair of bare legs sticking out from under the hood of a broken-down car. Certainly doesn’t expect to feel his heart beat faster when he realizes they belong to one of his best friends.
If he convinces Addie to give him a chance, they could be electric…or their break-up could split their tight-knit group in two.
Hiding the way he feels from the guys through bachelor parties, cake tastings, and rehearsals is one thing. But just asTucker realizes that Addie truly could be the perfect woman for him—he was just too stupid to realize it—now she’s leaving to follow her own dreams. He’s going to need to do a lot of compromising if he’s going to convince her to take a shot at forever with him—on her terms this time.
