You already know I love Leslie (for more about her and her books from me, look here, and here) , so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I love this books, even more than usual because come on, it’s cowboy time!
Texas rancher Nathaniel Meier always puts his responsibilities first. With his father dead, his brothers away, and his mother off “finding herself,” it’s Nat who runs their sprawling ranch. But with cattle to sell and the bank breathing down his neck, he needs all the help he can get, even when that help comes from the last person he ever expected to see again—his childhood sweetheart January Rose.
Free-spirited January always dreamed of traveling the world. The moment she turned eighteen, she left Close Call, Texas behind and barely looked back. So now that she’s home, she intends to stay only long enough to earn some cash and get back on the road. But when she comes face to face with Nat Meier, she quickly realizes the boy she left behind is now all man.
Even for a nomad like January, wanderlust sometimes gets lonely, and Nat is the one person who’s called to her, even after a decade apart. But for a man ruled by responsibility and a woman whose suitcase is her home, the future is uncertain. And the closer they get, the more Nat worries he’s going to get burned…again.
In my purse right now:
A mobile phone – A smart phone because I’m addicted to being online whenever I can!
Lipstick – NARS PowerMatte in Get It On. My recent treat to myself, it’s such a creamy texture. I love it!
A tiny sample bottle of perfume, Beyond Paradise. It’s really for emergencies, you never know when you might need a French shower!
A bottle of water.
A wallet to hold my cards, license and coins. We have soo many coins in London! Who even uses one penny coins these days?!
A scruffy notepad and pen, to jot down any ideas I have when I’m out!
A bunch of scrunched up receipts, because I’m messy.
Galaxy Caramel wrapper, because chocolate is my afternoon pick me up!
A packet of tissues because I always have hay fever at this time of year.
Two doggie poop bags: I’m a prepared parent!
My house keys should be in there, but I’m always misplacing them!

The truth of the matter is she loves her fictional persona, Leslie North, more than her normal, day-to-day persona! Her bestselling books focus on strong characters and particularly women who aren’t afraid to challenge an alpha male. Inspired after years of travel, her stories are set all over the world, from the tough streets of Russia to the beautiful beaches of the middle east.
Leslie fell in love with romance when she first picked up a scrappy, dog-eared romance book from her local library. She began writing soon after and the rest, as they say, was history. She now lives in a cozy cottage on the British coast and enjoys taking long walks with her two Dalmatians, George and Fergie.
